Direct School Admission
The DSA-Sec Exercise by MOE allows schools to select a percentage of Sec 1 students for admission outside of the centralised posting system, via the own school admission criteria, which may include diverse academic and non-academic achievements and talents. For students, the DSA-Sec Exercise provides them the opportunity to demonstrate a more diverse range of achievements and talents in seeking admission to schools who conduct this exercise.We are conducting the DSA exercise for both our Distinctive Programmes, Learning for Life Programme (LLP) – ‘Values through Dance’, and Applied Learning Programme (ALP) – ‘Innovations in Science & Technology for Sustain-Ability’. We warmly welcome students who are keen to develop their interest and talents in dance or in robotics and programming while pursuing their education in Fuchun Secondary School.
Learning for Life Programme: 'Values through Dance'
Dance is a creative and expressive art that integrates thinking, movements and feelings. It cultivates appreciation for the aesthetics and cultures, develops useful life skills and stretches the bodies and minds of our young. Beyond our school values of integrity, camaraderie, adaptability, responsibility and excellence, our LLP seeks to inculcate values, such as creative expression, collaboration, cultural understanding, confidence and the like.
There will be many exciting programmes and platforms for the student to learn the skills and knowledge through appreciation, exposure and experimentation. There will be arts showcases, foundation dance modules, assembly programmes, overseas learning journeys, camps and talent development programmes, including opportunities for external performances, etc. We also have 4 dance CCAs; namely, Chinese Dance, Malay Dance, Indian Dance, and Modern Dance and other complementary CCAs such as Guzheng, Choir, Concert Band and Lion Dance. Most importantly we are certain that the student will thoroughly enjoy these varied and enriching platforms and relish the many precious moments he or she experiences.
Through our unique distinctive programme, we hope to see the student grow to be someone who is a gracious, creative, constantly learning, reflective, and striving individual yet a socially competent, collaborative, team player, inundated with the integrity and responsibility to give back to the community and society.
