Arts Education in Victoria School
At Victoria School (VS), we nurture every Victorian to be a Gentleman, Professional and Sportsman. Our Victorian Arts Education Programme serves to develop our students into Gentlemen with a deep appreciation for the aesthetics.
Gentleman – To develop a passion for the Arts and to develop a vibrant culture for the promotion of artistic development and excellence in Victoria School.
Professional – To equip students with the basic knowledge and technical competency in appreciating aesthetics;
To provide programmes and platforms for student talents to showcase their artistic and musical mastery.
1) To actively involve every student in arts activities so as to imbue them with a sense of the aesthetics and an appreciation of the arts.
2) To develop the potential of students with artistic talents
