2.               Budding Artist Exhibition

Our yearly Budding Artist Exhibition provides opportunities for pupil artists to showcase their work. It is also a good platform to expose pupils to art appreciation. We segment the art exhibition into 2 segments – one segment featuring best artworks selected from the P1-6 curriculum artwork and another segment featuring selected artwork from Art Club.

This event also gives the P5 pupils the opportunity to learn the importance of class unity and play their role in contributing back to the school.
