Aesthetics, Craft & Technology Curriculum


Through our departmental programmes, students will be able to:

  • Develop an appreciation and gain adequate information on the various forms of Art; 
  • Approach problem solving through creativity and innovation; 
  • Communicate their ideas and thoughts clearly and effectively. 

*NEW Enhanced Music Programme (2017)


Music is one of the most powerful forms of communication. What is lesser known about music is that it also helps us to resolve our deepest inner conflicts. As in any other discipline, the learning of music (or a particular instrument) requires a high level of self-discipline and regular practice for accuracy and precision.

To attain a greater synergy with our school’s Learning for Life Programme, MELODY, aspiring music students from Secondary 3 Express course who have the passion, talent and aptitude for music can opt to develop stronger mastery and pursue a lifelong interest in this area through the ‘O’ level Music programme. Yuhuans can look forward to deepen their musical knowledge, learn from artistes and musicians and contribute to the cultural life of the community.


*NEW Smart Electrical Technology (2017)


Have you ever wished you could use your smartphone to switch off the fan or air-conditioning which was left running while you rushed out of the house? This is one of the many bright ideas of how technology can help to make life better for us.

The Smart Electrical Technology will be offered as an ‘N’ level elective for Secondary 3 N(T) course students from 2017 who will learn the knowledge and skills in planning and designing a smart home or workplace enabled with automation technology/systems.

Aesthetics / Visual Arts


Our Aesthetics and Visual Arts unit aims to provide students with the opportunity to give form and meaning to their ideas and also to express their thoughts and feelings through Visual and Performing Arts.  Our programmes are designed and tailored to the interests and needs of our students.  The art curriculum and enrichment lessons are integrated to enhance student learning.  The school adopts a 3 tiered framework, “Expose”, “Experience” and “Expression”  to ensure that our programmes maintain its progressiveness while exposing our students to different forms of Art.    

Design & Technology


Our Design & Technology unit seeks to enhance student learning through meaningful design processes and strive to imbue 21st Century skills such as creativity, critical and inventive thinking .   During the design process, students will also be able to build values such as empathy, responsibility and self-discipline.  To expose our students to real life applications and to prepare them to be work ready, the unit incorporates CAD software in its curriculum.  The unit is also exploring the use of 3D printing in the D & T curriculum to enhance the teaching and learning of creative design. 

Food and Consumer Education / Food & Nutrition


Our FCE/FN unit has its curriculum designed to empower students to be health-conscious and discerning consumers; enabling them to better manage their lives for the present and the future.  The unit continues to sustain good academic results through its structured curriculum to develop students who understand in depth the inter-relationships between diet, health and culinary skills.  The unit constantly sends students to participate in external competitions such as iChef by Republic Polytechnic to enrich learning experiences where they can put their skills and knowledge learnt in class to practical use.  Our students have constantly achieved stellar results in these external competitions and have become more confident in the process.

Marketing Innovation Challenge

Our D&T students, Zinzin, Yueqi, Jamal, and Jiawei took part in the Marketing Innovation Challenge 2013, organized by Republic Polytechnic.

During the competition, they identified the common problem of messy book shelves. They carried out research and eventually conceptualised an idea to solve the problem through the use of wireless technology. Their final task was to market the idea through the use of info-graphics. Though they did not win the top prizes, they were named the "Most Energetic Team" by the judges. The experience gain is certainly very relevant to both their D&T coursework and their future career.

买不到食材 两女生仍夺厨艺冠军    


 

努尔和队友普特利(不在图里)凭马来椰浆焖鸡肉和娘惹糯米饭团,获得评审团的青睐。

一道道香味扑鼻的马来椰浆焖鸡肉(ayam rendang)、排骨面、板面、鸡肉沙爹、云吞面……光看就令人垂涎三尺。不过这几道美食并非出自专业厨师之手,而是20名中学生的杰作。

由新加坡共和理工学院举办的第三届iChef厨艺大赛,上星期四(12日)圆满落幕。在大决赛中夺得冠军头衔的,是两名来自裕华中学的15岁女生普特利(Putri Nurhaidah Bte Mohd Abdul Aleem)和努尔(Nur Zulaikha Zulkifli)。

这两名女生虽热爱烹饪,却是首次参加烹饪比赛。她们凭一道香喷喷的马来椰浆焖鸡肉和娘惹糯米饭团,成功虏获评审团的味蕾。

对于初试啼声就获得冠军,普特利兴奋地告诉记者:“这实在是意想不到的!我们之前还因为买不到一些材料,而担心无法煮出菜肴的原味。比如说,我们买不到芫荽和八角这两种调味料,只好用玉桂枝替代;娘惹糯米饭团原本也需要用到三种面粉,但我们买不到普通面粉,只好将就用两种面粉完成糯米饭团。”

iChef厨艺大赛今年吸引了近50所中学的300多名学生参加,为本地规模最大的中学生烹饪比赛。这项比赛由共和理工学院的酒店与服务管理系(School of Hospitality)主办。

从设计菜单、上超市选购材料、烹饪到摆盘,都由两人一组的队伍一手包办。除了须在限定的一小时半内准备一道主菜和甜点,学生们的最大挑战就是必须离开家庭式小厨房,到商用中央厨房烹饪,让比赛难度大增。

 

增设“神秘菜市场挑战”新项目

此外,比赛去年增设了“神秘菜市场挑战”新项目,让参赛者在最后一分钟才知道必须到哪个指定地点购买食材,考验参赛者见招拆招的本领。

普特利说:“我们在比赛当天早上才知道会到哪个超市或菜市场选购材料,困难在于有些菜市场未必售卖我们所需要的材料。另外,也必须在短短30分钟内跑遍超市找材料,手头上也只有30元的预算,实在充满了挑战性!”

两名女生选择在决赛中烹制马来椰浆焖鸡肉,是因为之前在预赛和半决赛中已分别准备了中式和印度式菜肴,因此决定在决赛中以马来料理为主角。普特利也指出:“开斋节在上个月刚过,而椰浆焖鸡肉是马来人喜爱在开斋节享用的菜肴之一。”

有趣的是,普特利虽热爱烹饪,但在家时几乎没有多少机会下厨。她解释:“平时在家都是妈妈一手包办三餐,我只能帮忙切菜等。但我不想一直依赖妈妈,自己长大了也必须学会做菜,所以开始从妈妈身上学习。这样,以后我就能为妈妈做菜了。”

今年的iChef厨艺大赛邀请到教育部兼通讯及新闻部政务部长沈颖担任决赛嘉宾。比赛亚军由圣伯特理中学(St Patrick's Sch)的队伍获得,季军则归圣升明径学校(Assumption Pathway Sch)队伍。
