In the next two years, the music programme allows students to develop further in their music skills. Lessons are designed based on Orff Approach and students will be able to try their hands on instruments such as the soprano recorder and xylophone. In Art lessons, students will be able to appreciate Traditional Cultural Art and Craft such as Batik Painting.
