APSN Tanglin School Open House 2023

On 23rd August 2023, APSN Tanglin School opened its doors with a warm and enthusiastic welcome for parents, caregivers, and students during its Open House event. The day was filled with excitement and provided invaluable insights into the vibrant school community.

Visitors were treated to a unique opportunity to explore curriculum exhibits prepared by various departments, featuring engaging hands-on activities that showcased the school’s commitment to experiential learning. The event also highlighted the diverse range of Co-Curricular Activities (CCA), which was concluded with performances delivered by the talented Performing Arts CCA groups – TS LaTeens and the Unsung Silat Warriors.

It was a day filled with exploration, discovery, and artistic inspiration. APSN Tanglin School was thrilled to share our innovations with all who attended the event, fostering a strong connection with the community and the enthusiasm for learning.

Tanglin Parents Workshop

On 8 September 2023, APSN Tanglin School organized the Vocational Education (VE) and Healthy and Safe Relationships (HSR) workshops for parents that aimed to create opportunities for parent-child bonding through eco-friendly activities and to provide tips for parents to communicate more effectively with their child on sexual development and safe relationships. One segment of the workshops consisted of making eco-enzymes, iced chocolate and coffee grounds body scrub. Through the activities, parents and students learnt how to contribute to a sustainable and green community. Another segment of the workshops was a talk on the importance of sexuality conversations. Parents were equipped with skills to enhance communication with their child on sexuality matters. We are grateful for the contributions from our community partners, and the invaluable support of the parents in providing meaningful and engaging learning experiences for our students.

TS Teachers’ Day Celebration

“A Teacher Takes a Hand, Opens a Mind and Touches a Heart”

APSN Tanglin School commemorated the hard work of all its educators with an amazing Teachers’ Day Celebration. It was a fun-filled day with heart-warming performances by our students and a member of the Parent-Support Group sang a beautiful rendition of songs. The performance by Jay from Circus in Motion, was a hit where he showcased his mind-blowing circus-art routine and his signature crystal ball act was an amazing beauty. The well-wishes from the students signified their appreciation and love for their teachers, while everyone had a day well remembered. For this special occasion, we salute our educators for their invaluable contributions and dedication as they continue to light the students’ path to success.

Echoing Green Carnival

The Choose, Think and Grow Green programme is a school-wide initiative at APSN Tanglin School with the primary purpose of engaging our students in activities that increase their awareness of climate change and its impact on the environment. Throughout the whole process that began with the planning to the actual carnival on 17 August 2023, students were actively transforming materials, such as cardboard, empty cans and bottles collected around the school premises and from their homes, into works of art to decorate their class banners, game booths and stalls. Pre-loved items were on display during the carnival. The elements of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle have imbued in our students the value of building a more sustainable living environment. It was truly a purposeful and meaningful Echoing Green Carnival for all students, teachers, staff and volunteers as we strive to advance the national agenda on its sustainable development.

National Day Celebration

Tanglin School had a blast celebrating our nation’s 58th birthday with volunteers from Celanese Singapore Pte Ltd! The marching contingent comprising upper secondary CCA representatives, led by Secondary 4 student Nishaan Naidu, marked the start of the Observance Ceremony in remembrance of Singapore’s independence and nationhood. Students then contributed to a collage made up of beloved Singapore icons. There were also surprise performances from Tanglin School’s Fusionz Dance troupe and precision drills by Bukit Merah Secondary School! The celebration ended on a high as students were delighted to receive tote bags, generously sponsored by Celanese, which were printed with designs selected from an array of student entries submitted for our National Day Tote Bag Design Competition in the weeks leading up to National Day! Happy 58th birthday, Singapore!

Racial Harmony Day

On 21 July 2023, APSN Tanglin School celebrated Racial Harmony Day.  Students adorned in colourful ethnic attire, had lessons to reflect on how to maintain racial and religious harmony in our multicultural and multi-ethnic society. There was also a pre-event gallery of art works, created by different students that showcased the significance of celebrating racial harmony. The students and teachers had a fun and enjoyable day, posing for photographs and sharing the message that everyone has a part to play in maintaining the peace and harmony of our nation.

Play Fiesta 2023

Members from the Physical Education and Information & Communication Technology departments collaborated to organize Play Fiesta on 27 May 2023 at APSN Tanglin School.  Student-volunteers from Bukit Merah Secondary School and Raffles Girls’ School as well as friends from KPMG Singapore provided their invaluable assistance to ensure that every participant had a meaningful experience. There was a variety of carnival activities, where students were able to spend quality time with their parents and caregivers together as a family. Play Fiesta will be fondly remembered as a day of bonding and interaction amidst the excitement, laughter and learning without tears. What a great way to end the semester!

Towards an Inclusive Society

Students from APSN Tanglin School partnered with students from New Town Secondary School over 2 days of inclusivity events. On Day 1, our students interacted over games with students from New Town Secondary School. On Day 2, both groups of students visited Jamiyah Nursing Home (Darul Syifaa), bringing joy and laughter to the senior residents. The activities included chair exercises, pass-the-parcel game, singing Chan Mali Chan and other evergreen songs. The partnership between the 2 schools has fostered new friendships as they contributed meaningfully towards the well-being of the senior residents. Kudos to all who came together to empower lives for an active and inclusive society.

Gear Up! Let’s Get DigiFIT 2022

APSN Tanglin School innovatively incorporated technology to promote fitness and physical activities amongst the students. During the last few weeks of Semester 1, students were engaged in a variety of motion-based fitness activities with the use of interactive technology such as the Ring Fit Adventure on the Nintendo Switch and an IOS application called Active Arcade. Students displayed excellent sportsmanship and demonstrated the values of resilience and respect for one another as they gear up and become digitally fit.

Parents’ Caregivers’ Appreciation Day 2022

It was a day to remember for Tanglin School’s staff, parents, caregivers and students as they spent a Saturday afternoon at the Parents’ Caregivers’ Appreciation Day 2022. The theme for this year is “A Tribe’s Journey: Learning, Playing, Bonding”, and the event indeed fulfilled the theme! Thank you to all parents, caregivers and students who participated in the event and may you continue to learn, play and bond as a family!

aMATHzing Championship 2022

aMATHzing Championship 2022 was held at APSN Tanglin School on 18 May 2022.

APSN Tanglin School Multimedia Club 3D Project 2022

The Design Thinking approach empowers students at APSN Tanglin School (TS) to realize their innovative ideas into reality. A combination of divergent and convergent thinking has enabled our students to think out of the box to problem-solve creatively with confidence and resilience.
