For the second year at Jurong West Primary School, we were once again engaged to conduct their PAL(Programme for Active Learning) programme. This time it was for their Primary 3 students. For this semester we embarked on an interesting project with the school. PAL programme which intends to improve primary school education making it more holistic. It is not just another art lesson, its part of a series of programmes that will eventually remove the existing examination centric system of education.
To explain it briefly, its a programme of structured activity that creates teachable moments for building positive character and creativity while learning art. We feel fortunate once again to have been selected by Jurong West Primary School as it has allowed us to create new programmes, innovate new teaching methods and use of materials. We are beginning to see the merit of the PAL programme to create enjoyable learning experience which promotes learning and also develop the child’s social and emotional skills.
