Outdoor Education

Infant Outdoor Education

The development of the child as a whole is paramount and we recognise that different students are motivated by different experiences.


Outdoor learning spaces on campus include creative play equipment, nature zones and a challenging climbing wall. Wherever possible, the curriculum is brought to life through educational visits and field trips within Singapore, and beyond.

As students progress through Tanglin, they are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities that are on offer, including service learning, extensive outdoor education trips, and a wide range of co-curricular activities that stimulate and broaden student experience.

Learning outside the classroom and making a connection with Nature begins in the Infant School.

The Forest School pedagogy is really gathering momentum around the world and here at Tanglin we are lucky to have our own dedicated nature garden on site where we can carry out Forest School inspired exploration and activities. We have 3 accredited Forest School Level 3 leaders on our own team, and our Forest School project begins with extended sessions for our youngest children in Nursery. We are looking forward to developing more activities and opportunities for our older children as the project grows in scope. We also offer other opportunities to learn in the outdoors with a Forest School CCA and a range of carefully curated day trips and outings within Singapore. We are very proud of the way in which we are able to find creative and exciting ways to bring the curriculum to life for all our children when we go outdoors!
