In Xishan, we aim to develop Xishanites to be confident in expressing himself visually and verbally. Experiences within and beyond the classroom are intentionally created. Through the different art experiences provided, values will be inculcated, skills will be developed and knowledge will be formed.
The following shows some activities carried out beyond the classroom.
P3 and P4 Museum- Based Learning
In 2018, the new Art Syllabus was introduced. One of the compulsory learning experiences would be the P4 museum-based learning. Xishan has also extended the museum-based learning to P3.
Museum-based learning is one of the platforms to provide engaging and meaningful ways for students to encounter learning art content. Going to the museum also provides an authentic context for the learning of local art. In addition, the experience will develop in students the competencies and dispositions of an Audience.
