-Life-Long Learning Programme at South View

South View’s approach to promote Music, Visual and Performing is borne out of its vision to be a Vibrant Learning Organisation – The Best from All in All.

The school wants to inspire pupils to initiate, innovate and explore new ideas to achieve excellence in all endeavours. The school’s continuous effort in the provision of a broad-based and holistic learning is aligned to MOE’s Holistic Education Framework with the aims to :

  • ·     promote creativity and innovation;
  • ·     encourage pupils to pursue a passion and engage in self-directed and life-long learning;
  • ·     evoke in pupils an appreciation of the cultural richness of our multi-cultural society and enhance a sense of identity and self-assurance in them;
  • ·     nurture in our pupils qualities and values such as creativity, confidence, resilience and team-spirit  - the competencies for living and working as adults in the 21st Century


 The school adopts a pyramid or ATP(All-Talent-Passion) approach in promoting Arts. By adopting the pyramid approach, the school aims to provide experience for all, identify and develop talents, and equip and inspire pupils to continue to pursue their passion and develop their talents beyond their primary education.


Approach 1 : Experience for All

The experience for All is part of the school’s effort in the provision of holistic and broad education to help every pupil explore and discover their talent.  It is the first step towards the creation of different pathways to success. At this broad base level, all pupils learn dance, music and art through different modular programmes.

During the whole-level lessons, which are carried out during curriculum time, pupils learn both the skills and the history of the different dances and how they have evolved. They also learn not only to appreciate their own culture but also other cultures, and gain a better understanding of them.

These identified talented pupils are invited to join the different Aesthetic CCAs, which include Chinese Dance, Indian Dance, Malay Dance, Chinese Orchestra, Choir and Art Club, for dedicated instruction and training, to further strengthen their dance abilities and / or talents.    

Learning Beyond- Overseas Learning Journey to Seoul, South Korea

At the peak of the pyramid is where we see pupils whose passion have been ignited as they continue to pursue their passion and create for themselves another pathway to success, striving towards becoming Lifelong Learners. The school took a group of pupils to Seoul last year to learn Korean Dance. These pupils who have shown passion in dance were immersed in Korean Dance and Culture and learnt a Korean dance during the trip. They will be showcasing their skills and passion during the school’s 70th Anniversary Celebration in 2016.
