Partnerships and Programmes

1. Annual Art Exhibition and Art Workshop at Clementi Public Library
Community collaboration and involvement is an important part of one of the school’s partnership programmes. CTPS organizes an annual art exhibition and art workshop at Clementi Public Library. This exhibition boasts a collection of artworks contributed by Clementians and pupils from participating W1 cluster schools.
 
Art teachers from the W1 Cluster Interest Group (IG) for Visual Arts conduct art workshops for library patrons. The art workshops offer opportunities for families and young children to collaboratively make art.

During this festival, Clementians organize and man art booths that draw residents to take part in art making activities. Partnerships such as this provide an opportunity for our pupils to interact with the community through art.
