The String Ensemble has been around since the inception of our school. In 2011, violas and cellos were introduced to the club. We are proud of our more than 50 member ensemble who have performed in various school productions. They have also participated in national level competitions such as the Singapore Youth Festival.

Guitar Ensemble

The Guitar Ensemble began in 2003 as a CCA in North Spring Primary School. Since then, our Guitar Ensemble has developed to become one of the best school ensembles in Singapore, winning Gold awards in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) competition in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Our Ensemble prides itself not only in achieving outstanding results in competitions, but also in bonding its members together.

We encourage interaction between members so as to foster close bonds with one another. In August last year, our ensemble watched a mini concert by a gifted guitarist, Kevin Loh, who was talent scouted by the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin School in United Kingdom. Our guitarists have gained much insight and inspiration from this young musician. Most importantly, they have also learnt that 'Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration'.

We encourage our members to be socially responsible and contribute back to the community. Our CCA conducts many school performances. At the beginning of last year, the ensemble performed during the Chinese New Year celebration and played two songs: 大地回春 and 凤阳花鼓 for the school. The ensemble also performed in the Primary 1 Orientation concert and at the school’s Annual Prize Presentation ceremony. Through these performances, we give our members the opportunity to use their talent to make a difference in the school and community.

Choir

The school choir provides students with the opportunity to develop their musical skills and showcase their talent through the medium of singing. Not only do they develop their singing skills, students also learn to work together as a unit to achieve their goals and develop confidence and personality through performing. High standards are expected of our members not just during the CCA but also at all times and members are expected to be good role models.

These qualities were translated into a most positive result when the choir managed to achieve a ‘Distinction’ for their ‘ABRSM Choral Examination’ at the ‘Intermediate Level’ at their very first attempt two years ago.

Tap Dancing Group

Our Tap Dance CCA has benefitted children in a few key areas that include physical development, emotional maturity, social awareness and cognitive development. Students learn how to use their body in a wide-ranging series of movements and the use of different dance techniques that are incoporated into lessons as well.

These technical dance skills that students learn form the foundation on which each and every individual student’s performance is then further developed and enhanced. Students who join Tap Dance have the opportunity to learn a type of dance that communicates ideas through movement and it is a unique and expressive art form that develops our students' minds, bodies and psychomotor skills.

Ethnic Fusion Dance Group

Our Ethnic Fusion Dance is a dance form which can be identified as an ensemble of dances from the diverse and unique ethnic cultures in Singapore. This art form expresses aesthetics, movements and exudes a myriad of interesting elements from these rich cultures. North Spring Primary School introduced Ethnic Fusion Dance 2 years ago. Our club members also promote racial and religious tolerance and graciousness. Thus, inculcating racial harmony and a sense of pride in being Singaporean as part of our learning programme.

Drama Club

Our Drama Club has an exciting drama curriculum designed for students that is not only fun but also teaches children the fundamentals of speaking onstage. The programme aims to boost their confidence in public speaking through various platforms and genres.

There are so many different ways of communicating onstage; through poetry, prose, monologues (driven by characterisation of popular storybook characters), shared drama (short plays), formal public speaking and impromptu speech. Students in our drama club also learn everything they need to know about stage drama and we build on these skills to help children develop their confidence onstage. We also have a big production at the end of the year to give students an opportunity to showcase these skills.

By the end of the year, they would have learnt how to project their voice, use facial expressions effectively, build up emotion through dramatisation, pick up acting skills, write scripts, build props, manage lighting, read poetry and manage a stage.
