Key Activities

Arts Fiesta

Arts Fiesta, an evening of music, dance and art, is held in our Bishan community every two years. It features our students from various performing arts groups or in their form classes showcasing their creativity and talents. Arts Fiesta also partners with local artistes, the arts community and our community partners to bring about a vibrant arts scene.

Level-wide Aesthetics Programme

Art, dance and music workshops are conducted for our lower secondary students such that they are exposed to different art forms. Workshops include ukulele, drama in literature, metal sculpting and boom whackers etc.

Guangyang Got Talent

This is an annual talent competition which provides the stage for our students to release their talents. Results of the competition are decided by both the audience through voting and judges.

Arts Learning Journey

This is an effective channel for our students to be informed of other post-secondary school options on the performing arts. It also allows them to find out more about the courses available in LaSalle College of the Arts.

Students are also taken on a guided tour of the Esplanade whereby students will be able to learn more about the centre and its programmes. Students have a deeper insight into its operations, the various acoustic and architectural features of the performance venues and exhibition spaces.

Arts Discovery Sessions

Teachers use these sessions to share about their passion and enthusiasm for the aesthetics and engage students through small group activities, short talks and performances. Do watch out for these talks and join us!
