MOE Enrichment Programs

Vinnie Classroom was established in January 2014 as a provider of music education. Although the name is new to the scene, Vinnie Classroom represents a team of vibrant and dynamic music teachers, all with at least 3 years' teaching experience under their belt in conducting lessons one-to-one, small group and classroom environments.

NAC ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAMME (NAC-AEP)

"The National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) aims to provide all students with access to quality arts education programmes. The NAC-AEP is a database of specially selected arts education programmes that schools can purchase using an annual grant to subsidise part of the cost. Each year, the NAC-AEP makes available around 800 arts programmes by close to 240 artists and arts groups. The programmes are endorsed by a panel of professional artists and arts educators. The NAC-AEP spans 6 different art forms - Dance, Music, Theatre, Film and Multimedia, Visual Arts and Literary Arts."

"The Tote Board Arts Grant was introduced in 1995 to encourage the development of a vibrant arts culture in schools and promote arts appreciation among students. It subsidises schools' purchase of any programme endorsed under the NAC-AEP."
