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.

Their understanding and perception of the value is then translated into a piece of art. Their final artworks are displayed at the Esplanade.

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.
