Level 4, Sixth Form Building (Tanglin Trust School)

We are excited to provide an opportunity for faculty across International schools in Singapore to present and discuss their research with their peers. This is a great networking opportunity to share ideas, best practices and develop your interest in research. The forum will open with a keynote speech on R&D from the Vice President for Floorcare at Dyson, Charlie Park, followed by breakouts for presentations and discussions.

News from The Institute

Restoring bicycles for charity

Although bicycles are not the main mode of transportation in Singapore, they do make a big difference to many low-income families. That was why Nina D, Mahikaa G, Eliza H, Osian O, and Tanisha S from Year 12 decided to take on a bicycle renovation project for their CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service). They were inspired by a new bicycle project instituted last year where Yash Pathania (then in Year 13) repaired and restored old and abandoned bicycles that were piling up at the condominium he was staying at.

Faculty Research

Action Research Projects by Tanglin Teachers

The main focus of what Tanglin teachers conduct research on relates to classroom practice and how to maximise the efficiency of learning both in and outside the classroom. These are examples of excellent action research projects run by teachers striving to be their Personal Best and we hope will inspire faculty members to initiate their own research projects, with support from the Institute and Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
