  • Learning for Life Programme (LLP): Viva De Symphonie – Championing Values: Living, Learning & Growing Through Music: Anchoring on the approaches of Music for All and Music for Excellence, the school’s LLP aims to develop pupil character through its 6-year progressive music programme. Pupils develop the joy of learning as they learn to play the various musical instruments. Young talents are systematically identified and developed through the school’s music CCA groups. Opportunities are also given for them to be groomed at external platforms. 
  • Applied Learning Programme (ALP): Environment Science: The ALP aims to impart our pupils the practical concepts of science and its interplay with the environment through inquiry-based learning. Through the ALP, pupils develop entrepreneurial dare as they are engaged in the hands-on activities of creating new plant species through orchid hybridisation and nepenthes cultivation. Pupils develop 21CC (eg. Critical and Inventive Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Information skills) as they collaborate with one another during the learning process. Pupils with greater interests are given opportunities to participate in global environmental activities and competitions. 
  • Cultivating the spirit of learning through Design Thinking in Project Work: Project Work in the school is exciting and engaging as pupils immerse themselves in the Design Thinking process in solving real-world issues. Coupled with VIA and ALP, project work provides the platform for pupils to learn and apply their multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills. 
  • PrAISE (Pre-Assembly Instruction For Student Engagement) and AR2ISE (All-Round Recess Instruction For Student Engagement): To develop all pupils holistically, they are involved in the school’s PrAISE and AR2ISE programmes. Through these programmes, pupils are engaged in brain-based activities and game-based learning

Overall Feedback

  • Students’ Testimonials
    • “I am a sec one girl who was from yishun primary school. It truly is an amazing school like none other. I am not Singaporean, but I faced no racism there. All my teachers treated me fairly and I had many awesome friends. I had only started learning Chinese when I was in p1 and I had an awful time coping. But slowly, with the guidance of my teachers and friends, I began to improve and ended up in the best class. The CCA s Are good too. The band and all dances have constantly been achieving the gold with honors award and I reared after hearing the band play. The teachers in both cca and class are very nice. My primary three to six teacher was one who truly inspires me. In p6, she spent her weekends callin us back for extra classes and even providing us with sec four model compos which we enjoyed . She closely guided us all and we could even talk to her when we had difficulties (not only academic) We all did well in psle. Lots of my friends and I got above 250 for psle. Now, I am in a top school. I am truly proud to have been from yishun primary school. Without it, I would never have been able to reach my goals. Celebrations and even lessons are fun there. YPS rocks.”
