JWSS accorded the status as an EAP School

Enhanced Art Programme (EAP)

With the recent announcement, JWSS will be offering the Enhanced Art Programme (EAP) for Secondary 3 and 4 students from 2017 onwards. All EAP students will take the GCE ‘O’ Level Art examinations eventually. These students may also be eligible to take Higher Art, at the discretion of the school. This programme aims to provide more opportunities for students to enrol in art talent development programmes at the secondary level.

It also aims to encourage these students to cultivate a life-long interest in the arts and be equipped with useful lifelong competencies associated with an appreciation of the arts besides leading purposeful lives and using their talents to benefit their community.

EAP students will be exposed to the arts and creative industries in the form of master-classes with artists, studio sessions and visits by practitioners for authentic and relevant learning. They would also have opportunities to hold exhibitions.
