Aesthetic Development is a school-based curriculum organized for all senior secondary 4 students, in which various courses are provided to arouse students’ interest in performing arts, and to achieve a healthy life, a balanced and whole-person development with enriched learning experiences.
The subject covers a total of seven groups, including "Dance Group", " Music Composition and Arrangement Group ", "Singing Group", "Instrument Ensemble Group", "Fashion & Image Group", "Drama Group" and "Stage & Props Design Group". All courses are conducted by school teachers or external instructors who have expertise in arts to assure high quality of the courses.
Through Aesthetic Development, students can choose activities according to their own interest, and can learn the arts in a more relaxing way through appreciating, creating, performing and reflecting. The school hopes to develop students’ creativity, cultivate aesthetic experience, let students learn to respect multiple values and different cultures, and nurture their lifelong interest in art.
In order to promote students' learning, some groups co-organized courses with other institutions and invited traditional craft masters and artists to teach students, so that local crafts and traditional culture could be inherited. In addition, the school makes use of different platforms to display students' learning outcomes, and arranges participants to join competitions to enrich their performing experience. These activities help enhance students’ artistic skills, self-confidence, and further improve their personal growth.
