The school-wide aesthetic project was organized to involve the students,the teaching and the non-teaching staff to design the backdrop mural for the school’s Commendation Day.

The project involved self-portrait paintings through a collaborative effort. Students were able to identify themselves with the painted mural and were given the opportunity to witness the combined effort in piecing a huge backdrop mural together. Student representatives (4-5 students from each class) as well as teaching and non-teaching staff, first attended a photography session to have their pictures taken. They were then allocated a day each to paint their own portraits on canvas.

The works painted by the student representatives were judged, selected and subsequently awarded.

The best 48 square canvases were selected to be used as part of the collage work of the backdrop for the school’s Commendation Day. These canvases will later be exhibited along the corridor linking the 2 classroom blocks in the school.

The program instilled pride in the students and provided them with a goal in mind while they were engaged in their work. Students were equipped with basic painting skills and were therefore able to better appreciate the artworks around the school. School values such as self-discipline, resilience and resourcefulness were also instilled in their process to completing the work.

The project also encouraged teaching and non-teaching staff to come together and embark on a meaningful aesthetic project.
