Students will get the opportunity to stroll back in time to Singapore’s colonial days where soldiers and a fort on Fort Canning hill stood guard over a bustling town of horses, carts and trishaws at the harbour through this independent, interpretive and investigative trail. Along the trail, students will also get to view the beauty of sculpture pieces, completed by various artists, located amid the lush greenery of the park. Students will visit the ASEAN Sculpture Garden and find out more about the sculptures contributed by each member country for the ASEAN Sculptures Symposium held in Singapore in 1981. Facilitators will encourage group discussion, questioning and understanding of the sculptures that your pupils will discover.
Students will also visit the Spice Garden to learn about plants that were introduced in an effort to cultivate economic crops in Singapore. Following this, students will also explore the archaeological dig site where thousands of artefacts have been discovered at Fort Canning.
After the sculpture trail at Fort Canning, students may get the opportunity to visit a wold-renowned sculptor, Sun Yu-li, at his studio in Emily Hill to interact, discuss concepts and ideas and gain insight to the art of sculptures.
This follow-up program is subjected to the availability of the artist and only allows for a limited number of students due to space limitations.
