Week in Photos

Term 2, Week 6

We kicked off the week with a magical morning featuring the traditional beats of the Lion Dance! Students from Infants to Seniors enjoyed the vibrant and captivating performance, where a pat of the Lion can bring abundant luck and prosperity!

On the same day, Tanglin Foundation hosted a Members’ Reception to meet and greet with the locally renowned artist Donna Ong, preceding the unveiling of the astonishing art piece “We Dreamed a Forest” in the same evening. “We Dreamed a Forest” is the second installation in the Centennial Arts Trail, which includes distinctive original pieces of art, created by Singaporean artists, to commemorate Tanglin’s centenary, history, and connection to Singapore. 

Also on the Arts, Term 2 saw many varied and interesting art experiences across the whole school. This term our Year 12s went on their annual cultural and creative visit to Ubud, where they got the chance to immerse themselves in local experiences and compile sketches bringing to life their Bali adventure. Our Year 7s also visited Bright Hill Buddhist Temple as they started their studies in colour and pattern. Student experiences like these were complemented by visits from two internationally acclaimed artists, with a further visit from a local artist planned. Artistic visits of this kind are supported with help from The Foundation and allow Tanglin students and the wider community to better understand different artistic methods and enrich their artistic knowledge. 

The children dressed up in outfits inspired by numbers, shapes, and patterns and enjoyed all sorts of fun learning activities centred around the number 100. What a learning milestone! Here’s to the next 100 days and counting!

The Senior School has had two Chinese new year assemblies hosted by Year 12 IB Chinese class, showcasing a variety of wonderful cultural performances. 

This week, we held the first presentation introducing current Years 7 and 8 parents to our Tanglin Highlands programme.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming Mark Cutchie, the Head of Campus at Tanglin Gippslands, to our Singapore campus. Mark provided invaluable insights into the enriching 5-week immersive learning experience tailored for our Year 9 students, further enhancing our community's understanding and enthusiasm for this exceptional educational opportunity.

This week also marked the official opening of our Junior Playground. A big thank you to our class reps and other members of community who attended the event.
