Key Programmes

The art curriculum in primary schools provides the foundation for all primary students to understand art as a way of learning about themselves and the world around them. It will also allow students to advance their art education at lower secondary level and beyond if they so aspire. The fundamentals and areas of study built through the primary syllabus will spiral upwards to the higher levels through further extension and deepening of experiences in tandem with the growth of students’ developmental capacities and interests. It is therefore critical for all students to have access to quality art education in the primary school.
