As part of MOE‘s continuing efforts to support students with Special Educational Needs, two Special Education (SPED) schools serving students with mild intellectual disability (MID) will be redeveloped and co-located in Ang Mo Kio from 2025.
Chaoyang School (CYS) serves primary school students aged 7-12 years old while Tanglin School (TS) serves secondary school students aged 13-16 years old. The co-location of the schools will allow a seamless transition for students from primary to secondary education. It will also promote greater student interaction and learning opportunities between students.
“Students from both schools will be able to enjoy improved facilities at their new campuses. They will also be able to interact and learn together through CCAs and other school activities,” Ms Sun Xueling said.
Better facilities; expanded capacities
The new campus will be purpose-built with enhanced building specifications. This includes larger classrooms and modulation spaces to cater to students with MID. There will also be more aesthetics rooms and facilities for Physical Education (PE), Sports and Games. These include a health and fitness room as well as sheltered and outdoor play courts.
Vocational training facilities
Dedicated space will be set aside at TS for vocational training facilities. These facilities will provide opportunities for secondary students to hone their vocational skills. It will help to prepare them to progress to Vocational Certification programmes at APSN Delta Senior School and eventually to enter the workforce.
