What does Tanglin mean to you?

“Tanglin has been my home since 2001. In attending the school I have not only developed an academic curiosity, but also a social and personal awareness. I’ve connected with incredible people of all walks of life and been able to develop all of my interests thanks to the vast opportunities that are made available to me. The balance Tanglin has given me has helped to open many doors for my future and has given me the desire to keep achieving and making a difference in the communities I become a part of." Simone, Year 13

"Tanglin means lots of friendship opportunities and lots of resources for learning. And i like the outdoor space as well!" Year 5

"I joined Tanglin in Year 5 and I have really enjoyed these moments: The Junior House Team cycling from KL to SG in 24hrs and Blast from The Past in Year 6. I am in Year 7 now and all the teachers always have smiles on their faces - even Mr Turrell! Since i joined Tanglin all the teachers I've had are amazing, funny and most of all fun to work with."
