About Metta School:

Metta School was established in 2001 by Metta Welfare Association with the support of Ministry of Education (MOE) and National Council of Social Service (NCSS). The school offers special education to children with Mild Intellectual Disability (MID) and to children who also have Autism (ASD), aged between 7 and 21 years.

The Performing and Visual Arts Programme (PVA) is a signature programme for the school since 2003. It allows students to experience and develop interest and enjoyment in their own creativity and that of others. The students will explore, acquire and develop skills needed in the area of performing arts and visual arts. They learn to communicate their feelings, thoughts and ideas through art and also learn to appreciate performances and art work done by others. All students in Metta School take part in PVA programme on a weekly basis within the school curriculum time.
