Learning for Life Programme ( LLP )
Learning for Life Programme (LLP) in White Sands focusses on the Visual Arts (VA) of Heritage Art forms. HeARTs (Heritage Art Showcase) provides every White Sandian with real-life experiential learning to develop their character and values, cultivate positive attitudes and self-expression; and strengthen their people skills. It aims to nurture students with a keen sense of Aesthetics and an appreciation for the VA.
The key feature of LLP is to create a vibrant and strong culture of VA through curriculum and enrichment instructional programmes that will cultivate social and emotional competencies in all students. LLP provides opportunity for students to continuously engage in VA by contributing to and building partnership with the community.
LLP at White Sands takes on the Tier 1 & 2 Approach. At Tier 1, LLP opens opportunities for all students to experience the Visual Arts as audience and participants. Within the Art curriculum, they will be able appreciate, use appropriate vocabulary to describe works and practices, acquire skills to create and present; and develop character and values through VA participation. We expose students to as many and different heritage art forms such as
- Batik Painting
- Chinese Brush Painting
- Rangoli Art
- Peranakan Art
In Tier 2, students with an aptitude for VA will develop their interests and abilities; and take ownership of their arts learning by expressing ideas, thoughts and emotions through the chosen art forms by initiating and completing VA projects.
