Aesthetics

Welcome to the Fuchun Aesthetics Experience – comprising of performing and visual arts.

Fuchun Primary is an MOE Learning for Life Program (LLP) school in Music and the Performing Arts since 2014. We are recognised by the Ministry of Education as a Brass Band Niche school and an N7 Cluster Centre of Learning in Music in 2013. This acknowledges the school’s strength in P1-P6 music education, particularly in the area of brass band.


The school aims to “develop every pupil to respond aesthetically”. Our pupils are not simply “exposed” to various art forms (music, dance and visual arts), but are taught to critically appreciate the arts and create art forms expressive of life through feeling, the senses and the imagination.


This is possible because we benchmark our Aesthetics programmes and deploy qualified art and music teachers to educate our pupils. We also emphasise depth, and not just breadth, in both music and visual arts education.


For example, the school benchmarks its music programme to reach ABRSM Grade 3, and supports the 4 Performing Arts groups (Brass Band, Choir, String Ensemble and Guitar Ensemble) to take Trinity Ensemble Examinations.


Our 5 Performing Arts (4 Music and 1 Dance) and our Visual Arts CCA also closely support the school’s P1-P6 Aesthetics education.

Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2016, a collaboration of schools with Singapore Art Museum

Our Primary 4 pupils participated in the Think! Contemporary Programme in collaboration with Singapore Art Museum for the 3rd year in a row. The pupils visited the museum during Term 2, to view, appreciate and discuss about various artworks created by local artists. They also discussed art and social issues invoked by the artworks. The pupils then create artworks inspired by an artist chosen by them to be showcased in SAM. This year, we submitted a series of 15 photographs to be put on showcase. These photographs reflects on the importance of our canteen vendors, cleaners and school helpers as part of our school community. Our exhibits are aptly titled “Heroes Behind The Scene”.
