To further enrich the students, the department also organizes regular overseas Aesthetics trips. In June 2010, the AEP students went to France and Italy and Italy again in 2013. During these trips, they were exposed to art works from Renaissance to contemporary. In June 2011 and 2013, the MEP students visited Germany and Austria to further study on topics related to their A level Syllabus.

Since the inception of A level MEP and AEP in 2007, many of our students have excelled in the subjects and been awarded the Music Elective Programme Scholarship, MOE Overseas Teaching Scholarship for Music and Art, and NUS Global Merit Scholarship for Architecture.

General Music Programme (GMP) & General Art Programme (GAP)
The General Music and Art Programmes are modular Programmes that aim to engage all Year Ones and Two students in arts and culture. Students get to appreciate music and art better, enjoy ethnic and digital music creation, and express themselves in various art forms.

Music Elective Programme (MEP)
The Dunman High School Music Elective Programme (MEP) was introduced by the MOE in 1982. It offers musically-talented students a choice of either a 4-year GCE ‘O’ Level or a 6-year GCE ‘A’ Level programme. Adopting a holistic approach towards music teaching and learning, and led by our highly qualified team of music educators, MEP students are nurtured to be independent learners and musicians as they constantly improve on their musical skills, and deepen their understanding of and appreciation of music. They would be taught to analyse music of both Western and Asian traditions, and be equipped with musical composition and performing skills.

Art Elective Programme (AEP) (School-based)
The school-based Art Elective Programme (AEP) is offered up to GCE ‘A’ Level. It aims to expose artistically inclined students to a wide range of art forms supported by a deep understanding and appreciation of the visual arts. In line with our holistic approach to visual arts education, AEP students are strongly encouraged to apply their knowledge of art history and artists from the Study of Visual Arts into Studio Practice such as Painting, Sculpture, Digital Video, Installation, and Mixed Media.

Lifeskills Programme (LSP)
The unique Lifeskills Programme (LSP) is offered at Year One and Two students. It focuses on teaching practical life-long skills that range from cookery, nutrition, food product development, food safety and consumer education to emergency preparedness.

为了进一步丰富学生的学习经验,本院还定期组织海外美学艺术考察。 在2010年6月,美术特选课程学生分别远赴意大利和法国考察。在2013年6月,课程学生再次远赴意大利。而在 2011年和2013 年6月,音乐特选课程学生也前往德国与奥地利就音乐特选课程项目进行研习。

自2007年高中部推出音乐特选与美术特选课程至今,我校已有多名学生获颁音乐特选课程奖学金,教育部海外奖学金(音乐/美术教学),以及新加坡国立大学国际优异奖学金(建筑学)。这些成绩都是美学部门不懈努力的最好见证。
