Attention: Ms Chooi Yeng

Welcome Madam President visit to our Tanglin School

We were elated to be given the opportunity to showcase the talents of our students with mild intellectual disability to President Halimah Yacob via a tour. The tour encompassed four main stations namely Visual Arts: Water Colour, Taking Learning to the Sky, Literacy Alive, and Floristry ‘’Garden in a Bottle: Terrarium’’. At the Visual Arts station, students showcased their painting skills, with Madam President also joining in the activity to complete an art piece together with the students. In Taking Learning to the Sky, students from the Multimedia Club showcased their coding, piloting and drone photography skills by flying a drone through an obstacle course. As part of Literacy Alive, a group of students acted out a short scene from a book that they had written to try and promote it to their classmates. Their skit was warmly received by a round of applause from the audience. Min Hoe, the lead presenter from the Multimedia Club shared that he was happy to be given the chance to lead the presentation on drones and interact with Madam President. The tour ended with a practical session on creating a terrarium with our students. Madam President also kindly signed on one of our completed terrariums, which will be displayed in our school.

Chingay Parade 2023

Sharing the joy of the Lunar New Year, students and staff from APSN Tanglin School took part in the Chingay Parade 2023, themed Embrace Tomorrow, on 3 and 4 February 2023. Since November 2022, coupled with many hours of practice, they worked hard to learn the Samba routine and had supported the trainees from Faith Music Centre to put up a spectacular dance performance. Together with other contingents from Chingay Act 5, Team Tanglin contributed towards one of the most significant events in Singapore’s social-cultural calendar across the different ethnic communities. Although Min Hui and Ellynna were participating in Chingay 2023 for the first time, they have forged friendships with other participants which made their Chingay experiences more memorable. They learnt to overcome many challenges during all the rehearsals and they were appreciative of the little acts of kindness which they cherished. “I had a very fulfilling experience performing together with other dancers. The rain did not dampen our spirit and we were out to do our best. By the way, will I be selected to perform for Chingay 2024?” whispered Min Hui.

Tù a HOPpy New Year 2023!

The rabbit year got off to a great start with the festivities during APSN Tanglin School’s Chinese New Year celebration. It was also the first time the Parents Support Group collaborated with us to pull off our celebration, and they indeed brought the Chinese New Year spirit with an engaging skit and the God of Fortune! The atmosphere buzzed like an energizer bunny, fitting for the year of the rabbit. Let’s look forward tù a HOPpy New Year!

We honour our Teachers’ love and care for their students, and to convey the message that we care for them too.

Happy Teacher’s Day!
