Middleton International School (MIS) is opening a third campus MIS West Coast in February 2022 to offer more families access to high-quality international education without breaking the bank.
Part of the EtonHouse International Education Group, Middleton started its first campus in Upper Bukit Timah in 2017 in response to the strong demand for affordable international schools among expatriate parents. In May 2018, it opened its second campus in Tampines to offer a through train pathway for families from early years to high school. Both campuses soon reached full capacity and currently have a waitlist at most levels. The Middleton brand has also expanded into Vietnam, Indonesia and China.
The third campus, Middleton West Coast, is conveniently located next to Haw Par Villa MRT station. Occupying three levels at 20 Harbour Drive, this new campus has a capacity of more than 500 students, catering to learners from Nursery 2 to Grade 5 (3 to 11 years). Fees are below $20,000 a year, excluding GST, which is far lesser than the S$2,500 average monthly fee at international schools in Singapore.

Since its inception in 2014, All That Jazz Dance Academy has provided students of all ages with a high standard of artistic dance education to inspire and foster excellence in the arts. At its studios in Forum The Shopping Mall and Winstedt Road, students are offered a wide variety of popular dance classes like Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Lyrical, Mommy and Me, Musical Theatre, Acro Dance and Twinkle Tots.
Vicky Lee Ward, Director of All That Jazz Dance Academy, started the academy out of her desire to share her deep passion for dance with others. She wanted to provide a safe and loving space, where students can learn dance and feel at home in the studios. To Vicky, dance is not just a super fun activity, but also one that can transform lives by building character, discipline and confidence.
The academy has grown significantly with students ranging from two-year-olds to adults, all united by their love for dance. The decision to open a second studio was made as it was getting pretty full at its Forum location. The space at 10 Winstedt Road was chosen due to several reasons – the spacious studios, the lush surrounding greenery, the cozy feeling of the community at Winstedt and the convenience of the location as it is close to Newton MRT station.
Compared to the Forum branch, the new studio at Winstedt Road boasts larger studio spaces. The comfortable waiting lounge is also much bigger, and there are a lot of new classes offered at Winstedt.
With their recent expansion, All That Jazz Dance Academy hopes to continue to inspire more dance students with positive experiences in its studios, with the teachers and staff members. Ultimately, All That Jazz plans to collaborate with more dance institutions and the entertainment industry to provide their students with more opportunities to pursue dance at a professional level.
New students of the academy can enjoy a free trial class at its new Winstedt Road studio. For more information and to sign up, visit here.
Have you ever thought about how Singapore’s built environment has been transformed over the years? Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes to develop the buildings we see around us today? You can now learn about these and about the past, present and future of our local building and construction scene at the newly revamped BCA Gallery (Building and Construction Authority).
Located at the premises of the BCA Academy at Braddell Road, the 2-storey gallery has been expanded from a single storey showcase and now houses six different zones with multimedia and interactive features. Learn about the transformation of our built environment and how buildings are built, from conceptualisation to occupation, through the gallery's interactive displays!
At the first few zones, visitors can find out how local building marvels were developed and learn about the various productive construction technologies adopted in the local building industry
Visitors to the BCA Gallery will experience an interactive journey of Singapore's building development through the years and gain insights into BCA's role in shaping a safe, sustainable, high-quality and friendly built environment for Singapore. The four key pillars of an excellent built environment, namely, safety, quality, sustainability and friendly, are highlighted collectively in this multi-sensory treat of interactive exhibits, model showcases and pull-out panels.
The Gallery is sub-divided into three zones according to three distinct themes:
The Singapore Rail Academy (SGRA) is a set-up within the Land Transport Authority and was launched last month to serve as a platform for training and development opportunities.
It currently has a workforce of over 7,000 in railway operations and maintenance, of whom more than half are engineers and technicians. To support the expansion of the rail network to 360km by the year 2030, it is estimated that an additional workforce of 5,000 and other capabilities will be required to meet the demand.
The Academy will be working with rail operators and Institutes of Higher Learning to deepen rail engineering capabilities.
LTA also announced the opening of the Transportation Systems Lab and Systems Engineering Lab in Singapore Institute of Technology. These two labs support SGRA’s functions to enhance laboratory-based teaching and learning, and enable application-focused research on systems engineering, modelling and simulation.
These labs would be used as classrooms to conduct courses and training for students of the SIT Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) degree programme, SIT-DigiPen Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems) degree programme as well as practising engineers. In addition, the Transportation Systems Lab serves as the key simulation lab for SIT’s Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering) degree programme and the Systems Engineering Lab will also be used for specialised training in systems engineering and project management.
Situated in the vibrant and eclectic enclave of Tiong Bahru, the modern and historic juxtaposition of the restaurant atop an art-deco straits settlement boutique hotel fits perfectly with the surroundings.
Born in the year of the rabbit (which explains his choice of restaurant name), Chef Matthew has always been fascinated with cooking since young. Unlike most award-winning chefs, Chef Matthew kept his training local within At-Sunrise Global Chef Academy without any overseas apprenticeship. Similar to Heston Blumenthal, he picks up ideas from his travel experiences and interaction with people.
A combination of classic French techniques along with a touch of Asian and Singaporean flavours, Chef Matthew creates seasonal menus inspired by the 7 characteristics of ‘ENSOPHI’: Exotic, Nostalgia, Soil, Ocean, Pristine, Heritage, Impression. Each element represents a poetic and artistic expression of his dish.
Sourced from little-known boutique vineyards from all over the world, wine labels to pair with each course range from familiar regions like Barossa Valley, Australia and Bordeaux, France to newer regions like Nahe, Germany and Colchagua Valley, Chile. Watch as resident mixologist Aidil shakes up house crafted cocktails and international favourites to kick-start your meal. Enjoy Happy Hour specials and live music from Thursday to Saturday evenings.
With Chef Matthew’s forte in creating and designing, he made a full renovation to the space. The intimate 30-seater indoor dining room is formed around a semi-circle with floor to ceiling glass windows for a 180° view of the city. Complete with an open kitchen concept, diode branches of stars imprinted in the ceiling, and Chef Matthew’s sketches and art sculptures collected from his travels, the stage is set for a gastronomical and artistic experience. The outdoor rooftop terrace seats 26 but offers ample standing space for large-scale events in a lush alfresco garden setting. Chef Matthew has plans to set up a vertical garden around the steel façade. Sip some wine, savour the food and soak in the ambience. The Rabbit Stash offers a multi-sensory dining adventure with a feast for all senses.
