Clubs and Societies
Established in 2016, Art Club provides the opportunity for students to meet after school to work on special art projects and to share art experiences with their peers. Besides, the club also serves as a platform for students to showcase their talents and expand their knowledge in art and art-making through different mediums such as spray painting, impressionist painting, ceramic, photography and sculpture. As part of building appreciation and awareness of art in the society, students also visit museums to look at art exhibitions and participate in external competitions which enrich their learning and broaden their exposure to the different art forms.
ECoS aims to firstly, develop Kranjians to be environmentally conscious citizens and to build an environmentally friendly school and secondly, to embark on meaningful service-learning programmes that helps the community.
The club collaborates with external organisations for meaningful VIA projects to spread awareness of environmental issues as well as to do their part for Mother Earth. Students are exposed to learning journeys and hands-on upcycling workshops to enrich their experience.
Key Programmes and Partners
In line with the English Department’s mission to develop Kranjians into confident speakers who are able to articulate their opinions and ideas clearly and effectively, the Public Speaking and Debates Programme was launched in 2016, with the following objectives:
• To develop students’ interest and competences in public speaking and debating
• To equip students with skills in research, critical thinking and argumentative writing
• To provide opportunities for students to participate in national/inter-school debating competitions
Students are guided by a qualified debates coach. They undergo an introductory debates workshop, where they pick up the basics of debating. This is followed by a series of regular training sessions, where students get to debate on motions covering a wide range of topics and issues. The school actively seeks out opportunities for students to participate in national/inter-school debating competitions so as to enable them to gain exposure and develop confidence in debating.
The Kranji Production Technical Team (KPPT) is an innovative CCA body that renders audio technical support in various school events and functions, such as morning assemblies, talks, event celebrations and music broadcast. Comprising a dynamic team of students and teachers, KPTT provides a platform to equip students who are interested in the technical aspect of stage production with skills to contribute to the school and it believes in working harmoniously together as one unit. KPTT also coordinates with other CCAs and lends support in major school performances, and through exposure to working at professional stage spaces, its members also acquire rich learning and expertise in backstage and technical crew work.
Usually the first to set up and the last to terminate its services and leave, KPTT is the unsung hero of the many successes experienced by the school.
Media Innovation provides quality service to the school and the community by empowering Kranjians to integrate media and ICT tools with innovative ideas and solutions. The students are exposed to a wide variety of skills such as Journalism photography, Advance (DSLR) photography, Videography and video editing, Graphics Designing, Digital Animation, 3D-Modelling and Apps Development as part of their regular training, and are often called upon to provide their technical expertise in supporting the various school and CCA functions and events. To give the students exposure and to enrich their learning, opportunities are created for them to participate in photography and animation competitions and the School Digital Media Awards.
