Why you can put your trust in Tanglin Trust School, Singapore.
This year has been tough on our children (though they have dealt with everything like real troopers!) what with schools closing and then reopening with strict social distancing protocols. For many families relocating from Hong Kong, there will be more changes and adjustments ahead. If you are moving to Singapore, you will want to look for a school where your kids will be well cared for and supported through this transition, and where they will continue to flourish from then on. Tanglin Trust School in Singapore is one such school where every child’s wellbeing comes first. Its core values of “Respect, Responsibility and Purpose” can be felt throughout the community, from the youngest Tanglin children to the Heads of School. In fact, its Junior School (ages 7 to 11 years) has just been awarded the Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) Gold Accreditation – an initiative run by UNICEF UK to encourage schools to place children’s rights at the heart of their ethos and curriculum. Tanglin Junior School is the first school to be awarded Rights Respecting: Gold outside the UK.
Tanglin Trust School has proved its credentials for close to a century, having been established in 1925! It provides the English National Curriculum with an international perspective to 2,800 children from 3 to 18 years in Singapore. Over the years, it has built a reputation for academic excellence, but equally important is the pastoral care it provides to its students. Wellbeing is a core development strategy at Tanglin, an approach that helps children flourish both personally and academically.
The RRSA initiative is just part of Tanglin’s whole-school positive education approach. Throughout the school’s curriculum, there are age-appropriate initiatives closely linked to wellbeing. Tanglin’s Junior School students are encouraged to develop their voice and become experts in the subject of children’s rights. After all, this is when children’s sense of self and place in the world develops rapidly. As a result of this emphasis on children’s rights, students become more articulate, confident and prepared to make a positive contribution to their community and the world ahead of them.
