Together, Simply Stronger
Over the last five decades, Tanglin Secondary School has stayed true to the core of its mission. Tanglinians who have walked through its gates would attest to having been positively impacted, having their lives transformed and potential unleashed. Under the leadership of Ms Ng Ngoing Keng from 2016 – 2020, the school has continued to provide a quality school experience so as to meet the needs of every Tanglinian. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Ms Ng and we wish her all the very best in the next phase of her life.
I am deeply honoured to be entrusted with the stewardship of Tanglin Secondary School. As the 12th Principal, I stand on the shoulders of giants – the eleven Principals who have laboured with love and taken this school to where it is today. I endeavour to build on their good work, further strengthen the Tanglin spirit and let the light of Tanglin shine through in the Tanglin community.
‘Everyone is Unique; All can Succeed’ will continue to be the key tenet of education in Tanglin Secondary School. Team Tanglin will continue to embrace every child regardless of their background, and strive to nurture Tanglinians to become ‘Leaders of the Future and Pride of the Community’ – a people with a strong sense of purpose and motivation to better the lives of others.
Tanglinians will continue to enjoy an innovative and engaging curriculum anchored on our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Care and the Curiosity to learn. Our ALP (Tanglin PLUS) and LLP (TSS Arts Programme), coupled with the exciting line up of CCA and student development experiences, aim to equip every child with the 21st century competencies and the love for learning. Through a caring and supportive school environment, Tanglinians will also learn social-emotional skills and the right citizenship dispositions to navigate life’s challenges.
I humbly invite all our valued parents and stakeholders to partner us as we write the next chapter of Tanglin’s growth story. As Team Tanglin embarks on reimagining education in Tanglin Secondary School, further leveraging affordances of digital technology, we are keenly aware that we cannot walk this journey alone. We need your strong support to uplift every Tanglinian to enable every child to learn anywhere and everywhere.
Together, we are Simply Stronger.
