St. Margaret’s Secondary School is the Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Visual and Performing Arts in the S3 Cluster. As this is our niche, we provide different platforms to develop our students’ artistic sensibilities.
At the lower secondary level, students’ skills and confidence in drawing, painting, hatching and colour rendering are developed. They also learn to manipulate Art software programmes such as Photoshop to enhance their artwork.
The highlights of the Lower Secondary General Music programme include the playing of instruments, learning about the elements of music and creative music making. Students also learn to harness the use of technology to enhance their performance-related activities.
We offer GCE 'O' Level Art, Drama, Music (and Higher Music) to our Upper Secondary students as optional subjects. Lessons are conducted within our school.
St. Margaret’s makes the effort to expose all students to as many art forms as possible. This is achieved through Assembly Programmes, dance and story-telling enrichment activities held during the post-exam period, as well as learning journeys to the Esplanade and art museum. Artistes and artists are also invited to showcase and share with students their passion in a range of art forms.
We offer nine different Arts CCAs, namely Indian Dance, Chinese Dance, Malay Dance, Modern Dance, Creative Art Club, English Drama Club, Symphonic Band, String Ensemble and Choir. Qualified instructors provide training in the different skills pertaining to each art form. Opportunities are also provided for students to showcase their talents at in-house concerts, SYF Celebrations @ the Malls, Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s Art Healing Programme and Arts @ KKH programme.
