Dazzling Performances

APSN CYS Little Beans EnsembleAPSN Chaoyang School – Little Beans Ensemble

The Ensemble CCA aka “Little Beans Ensemble” comprises of students from Primary 2 to Primary 6. The teachers and students practised and trained hard for the past six months to piece together a musical presentation for the audience to enjoy. The Ensemble CCA provides a platform for the students to try out different musical instruments such as the Chinese drum and xylophones. Students learn rhythmic skills in a creative way where beats are converted to simple rhymes for each student to remember. The weekly practices allow students to build synchronization where they work together to create the perfect rhythm as a whole.

APSN KS Circus ArtsAPSN Katong School – Circus Art

In this performance from the APSN Katong School’s Circus Arts CCA or the POST Team (People of Special Talents), you will see the students’ display of their talents in a variety of circus-related acts, such as the Chinese Diablo, juggling and coordinated skipping. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic this year, they did not allow it to dampen their spirits and worked extra hard through a combination of online lessons and face-to-face trainings to hone their skills to put up this amazing performance. The students truly demonstrated the school values of resilience and commitment and exhibited great teamwork in putting the show together for you. Hope you will enjoy their performance!
