A distinctive academy that ignites passion and inspires professional excellence in arts education.
Building a community of excellent arts teachers.
Every teacher is capable of nurturing artistic sensibilities and creative expression of pupils, developing gracious citizens and impact nation building.
STAR serves as a focal point for art and music teachers to come together to exchange pedagogical knowledge, collaborate in arts practice and network with one another. Year-round programmes are scheduled to continuously generate interest and excitement in professional learning. Specialised facilities such as art and music studios, training rooms, and a recital room support the professional development activities.
STAR forges partnerships with local and overseas institutions and arts communities to build the community of arts educators. STAR also works with visiting fellows and Outstanding-Educators-in-Residence (OEIR) to develop special programmes.
