Aesthetics

Aesthetics Day is a special day set aside for all pupils from Primary 1 to 6 to perform on a 360-degree stage. Organised by the Aesthetics department, the event aims to nurture confident Fairsians who are appreciative of the arts. On that day, students’ musical talents are showcased through various performances based on the music curriculum (e.g. ukulele, ethnic drums, keyboard, song and dance). It is a fun occasion where everybody takes turn to perform as well as be a supportive and appreciative audience.

Past and Present Singapore
Composed by Nadyehzda Wong, Primary 3B






Verse 1
Sitting on my swing,
Swinging to the sky,
Looking at the city thinking what it used to be.
Back and forth the swing,
Then and now the scenes,
200 years, 54 years where do I begin?

Pre-chorus
Then we built sandcastles in the playground, sat on the see-saw with friends. 
Now our parents sit around and wait for our playtime to end. 

Chorus
Past and present, many faces, we are Singapore.
Streets and houses may be different, we are still one people. 
Hopscotch, five-stones, pick-up-sticks or with the new iPad.
Fun and games we shared,
In a place that is home,
This is where I call my Singapore. 

Outro
Wherever you may go,
There is no place like home,
This is where I call my Singapore.  

Fairfield Methodist School (Primary), Junyuan Primary School, South View Primary School, Yuhua Primary School were the 4 primary schools who won the top 15 award for SYF 2019 Song Writing Contest.

130th Founder’s Day Theme Song Writing Masterclass and Mentoring Session

To allow our students an opportunity to learn more about songwriting and appreciate works from local composers, we engaged a professional from the creative industry and ex-Fairsian, Ms Elaine Chan. She mentored the student songwriters who composed the winning theme song and guided them on how to enhance it. She also conducted a masterclass for all interested students and shared tips on songwriting. The students also had a fun time singing famous NDP tunes composed by Ms Chan such as NDP 2005 theme song “Reach out for the skies” and NDP 2013 theme song “One Singapore”. Students even had a chance to co-create a song together with her! What a musical treat it was for our Fairsians! The masterclass was held on 3 July 2018 at the FMS(P) Performing Arts Studio (PAS).
