Year 4 children have been donating food over the last week in order to support local charity organisation, Food From The Heart which provides food parcels to those individuals, and families, that need it most. On Monday, our Junior philanthropists made a short trip down to their headquarters to deliver the items. Thank you to everyone for the donations and a huge well done to all who contributed their time and efforts.
Well done to all our Junior children who showcased their wonderful musical talents during the lunchtime recitals over the last two weeks.
Reception children took part in their Sports Day at the Berrick Sports hall earlier this week. Seeing their excitement and energy on full display during their mini-races was the highlight of the morning!
Recently, 20 Tanglin student delegates travelled to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to participate in the SEASAC MUN 2023 hosted by Saigon South International School (SSIS). The conference provided an excellent opportunity for students to develop their leadership and collaboration skills while researching, debating and proposing solutions to real-world problems.
Well done to all our Tanglin athletes who took part in the various sports competitions over the weekend! A huge shout out to our Senior girls team for being champions at the SEASAC Swimming Championship and our Rugby 16&U team for the 5-0 win!!
We were delighted to welcome contemporary British artist Ian Murphy to Tanglin to work with our students to teach them creative approaches to drawing. Renowned for his stunning sketchbooks and his meticulously detailed drawings and paintings, he shared techniques for students to use in their coursework. For the first time, the artist also conducted a workshop for our staff and parents, enabling them the opportunity to explore sketching techniques and take away their own piece of art.
Year 12 pupils have been planning and delivering sessions for the Year 1 students, and the Year 9s to the Year 3s. Each month the National Gallery drops off an interactive ‘travelling art cart’ as part of their community outreach programme. The senior students have led their younger peers in the Infant and Junior schools in collaborative and creative sessions. The interactions have been a joy to watch each month. It has not only been wonderful to see friendships develop across the three schools, but valuable for senior students to develop skills in collaboration and communication!
Our Year 5 students embarked on their residential trip this week, where they honed their outdoor craft skills like true pros and camped overnight. The children tackled team-building games with gusto and even crafted their very own camping stools! But that's not all - they also learned how to saw and chop wood like seasoned lumberjacks and pitched their own tents!
In conjunction with World Book Day this week, Junior Library organised the 'Festival of Authors' which celebrates books and stories from all over the world. The theme this year was Traditional Tales. We were delighted to have acclaimed food writer, Namita Mehra and award-winning, international storyteller, Mara Menzies joining us this week to inspire the children with traditional folklore and readings from their latest books.
