SLA was invited to share the development and evolution of Tanglin Village during MOE’s annual end-of-year review and planning session on 14 November 2016. The sharing session held at House @ Dempsey was attended by MOE Zonal Director Mrs Ng Ai Lin and Superintendents (Schools-South).
The session kicked off with a site tour which included routes between the large clusters and a walkabout into several key properties to give participants an “on the ground” experience. An illustration of the tour route is shown:
At each stop, SLA shared the history and heritage of the area, as well as its current operations and future plans.
After the site tour, the group adjourned to House @ Dempsey for a light breakfast followed by a presentation of Tanglin Village covering topics such as:
- Story of Tanglin Village and its development
- Guiding philosophy and values
- Concept – Preserve the past whilst evolving with times
- Challenges and solutions
- Skills and mindset adopted
- Future of Tanglin Village
During the post-presentation discussion, participants contributed ideas on how the profile of Tanglin Village could be improved.
The session concluded with a presentation of tokens of appreciation by Zonal Director (Schools-South) Mrs Ng Ai Lin.
