Pasir Ris Secondary School(PRSS) is into an exciting stage of growth. We would like to extend our warmest invitation to all Primary 6 students to apply for direct admission to our Secondary One in 2019 via the DSA-Sec Direct School Admission Exercise. This year, we have expanded our DSA to 2 categories including
a) Music & Performing Arts - In PRSS, we embrace the love of aesthetics and have a vibrant culture in the Music and Performing Arts. Our Learning for Life Programme (LLP) in music and performing arts is a broad-based programme encapsulated in ‘SHINE’ which comprises 5 key areas: Self-discovery of interest and ability, Heritage & cultural appreciation, Interaction & Collaborative learning, eNgagement in community outreach & partnership and Excellence in artistic expression. Through music and the performing arts, we hope to cultivate sound values, social-emotional competencies and character in our students and help them to pursue their passion and talent in the aesthetics. The Performing Arts CCAs in our school includes the Choir, Concert Band, Chinese Orchestra, Drama and the Malay Dance.b) Applied Learning Programme in Humanities & Languages – Launched in 2014, our ALP aims to foster the joy of learning in Humanities and the English Language and cultivate in students the 21st Century competencies including effective communication and collaboration skills, critical thinking, civic literacy, global awareness and cross-cultural understanding. The programme provides students with a diversity of humanities subjects, application to real world problems, deepening students’ appreciation of current affairs and global issues and authentic learning experiences through inter-disciplinary and Values-in-Action projects.
