Fuchun Primary 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.

P1 - P3 Musical Learning Journeys
This semester, our Primary 1 – 3 pupils went on learning journeys to watch the following musicals: Our Primary 1 pupils watched Gretel and Hansel at KC Arts Centre; Primary 2 pupils watched The Tiger Who Came to Tea at the Drama Centre at the National Library; Primary 3 pupils watched The Gruffalo at Victoria Theatre.
These Musical Learning Journeys created authentic opportunities for our pupils to appreciate a live musical and learn about story and character development. It also allowed our students to understand how music is used to express characters’ emotions and make the stories fun and engaging. The pupils truly enjoyed themselves at these musicals and we look forward to more experiential learning opportunities for them!
