The Ngee Ann Kongsi donated S$50 million to LASALLE College of the Arts – their largest-ever, single donation to date – to develop a new building for the College.
The new 12-storey building will be named The Ngee Ann Kongsi Building. It will be built on a plot of land earmarked for LASALLE, adjacent to the existing campus on McNally Street and connected to Rochor MRT station. The new unified campus is envisioned to have a glass façade that opens into the vibrant thoroughfare of Rochor Canal Road. The announcement of the new building caps off a memorable year for LASALLE, which saw the College receive its second consecutive EduTrust Star, Singapore’s highest mark of quality for a private education institution.
The Ngee Ann Kongsi Building will house an upgraded library to hold a larger collection of books and other arts resources, film and TV studio facilities and a music recital hall that will present free concerts for members of the public. There will be new galleries on the ground floor to reach out to the community as well as specialist and flexible spaces to meet future learning and teaching needs. The public can also look forward to facilities for a wide array of Continuing Education and Training (CET) programmes for professional and personal development.
Their new campus will allow the school to better cater to the holistic development of their students and engagement of the community. This will be achieved through features that facilitate innovative thinking and learning of socio-emotional competencies and interpersonal skill.
In moving to the Braddell/Toa Payoh area, they will also partner the neighbouring primary schools and Volunteer Welfare Organisations (VWOs) for service learning.
As part of the Ministry of Education’s continuing efforts to support students with Special Educational Needs (SEN), Pathlight School will operate a second permanent campus in Tampines from January 2023. This was announced by Second Minister for Education, Ms Indranee Rajah, during her visit to Pathlight Campus 1, where she also recently officiated the opening of its inclusive worksite.
Established by the Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), Pathlight is a government-funded Special Education (SPED) school, which offers the national curriculum to students with moderate-to-severe SEN, and students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). To address the growing demand from students with ASD who are able to access the national curriculum, the new Campus 2 will provide about 500 additional primary level school places.
The new purpose-built campus will be located at the site of the former East View Primary School at Tampines Street 91. The site was selected based on the geographical distribution of Pathlight’s current demand, and the site’s close proximity to mainstream schools such as Junyuan Primary School and St Hilda’s Primary School. Such physical proximity will enhance opportunities for interaction through joint activities, between Pathlight students and their peers in mainstream schools.
To support learning for Pathlight students, the new Campus 2 will have infrastructure provisions similar to mainstream primary schools, plus specialised facilities to cater to the needs of students with ASD. These include an Indoor Sports Hall, a daily living skills room, and therapy rooms.
Currently, Pathlight has two campuses, with about 1,400 primary, secondary and vocational track students. The interim Campus 2 will continue to serve its students when the new Campus 2 starts operation in January 2023.
MOE will continue to monitor and review the demand for SPED school places, and will work with Social Service Agencies to provide sufficient capacity to cater to the needs of specific student profiles. Please refer to the Annex for more information on MOE’s ongoing efforts to meet demand for places in SPED schools.

The new Outdoor Discovery Centre at their Tanjong Katong campus underlines Canadian International School’s focus on facilitating academic excellence in the Kindergarten years through play-based learning in environments that nurture creativity and exploration. Hands-on exploration in the Primary years solidifies concepts and understanding more concretely than rote learning. By the age of 10, students who have “played” in their formative years excel in creativity, intelligence, oral expression and work habits.
Their Outdoor Discovery Centre is an extension of our indoor classrooms, filled with textures, sounds and smells unique to the outdoors. There are lots of purpose-built areas for children to interact with nature and run around as well as spaces where they can withdraw and quietly reflect. Spaces include a play fort, a mud kitchen, a sound garden, a natural tunnel and grassy hill, a creative play space with loose parts, a bike track and quiet areas intentionally designed to build minds and bodies, and nurture strong connections to nature.
