SWISH! Swimming is a swimming school, for children aged 4 months and above. Founded on the philosophy that learning to swim is an essential life-saving skill and not something that is only required for those who want to swim competitively. Learning to swim is about communicating with water – not being fearful of it, but instead using it as the building block for a whole load more of fun times in your life.
Nestled in the lush surroundings of Dempsey Hill, SWISH! offers a variety of Aquatic Enrichment Classes for all ages. The temperature controlled indoor and outdoor, salt-chlorinated pools are purpose built to optimize the learning experience.
The Yard Dempsey is a state-of-the-art, acrobatic sports centre at Loewen Road which offers programmes for kids ranging from 18 months to 10 years.
Surrounded by a wide variety of food, activity and educational options, The Yard Dempsey aims to add a new flavour to the already bustling community at Dempsey. Programs at Dempsey are aimed at the younger age frame with classes from parent accompanied GymTots to the independent Kinder and JuniorGym levels.
With an emphasis on fun and fitness, their recreational gymnasts are encouraged to achieve a personal-level of success in skill-development and an enjoyment of gymnastics.
The Yard's 1st facility started in 2016 at Science Centre Road. You can read about it here.

This new 2-hectare test facility will support the Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of AVs – NTU (CETRAN), which was launched on 1 Aug 2016 to spearhead the development of testing requirements for AVs. Together with CETRAN and its partners, LTA will work towards developing the necessary standards and testing regimes for the safe deployment of AVs on our public roads. As there are no existing international test standards or international certification bodies for AVs, CETRAN will anchor Singapore’s position as an industry leader in supporting the testing and eventual widespread deployment of AVs.
Jointly developed by LTA, NTU and JTC, the centre in the Jurong Innovation District will be managed by the Energy Research Institute at NTU (ERI@N).
In order to be integrated onto public roads, AVs need to be tested on their communication with other vehicles, road infrastructure as well as dispatch and routing systems. To facilitate the testing of AV navigation controls in a real-world environment, the test centre is designed to replicate the different elements of Singapore’s roads, with common traffic schemes, road infrastructure, and traffic rules. The circuit also features a rain simulator and flood zone to test AVs’ navigation abilities under different weather conditions.
To monitor the progress of AV testing, LTA has installed a network of seven 360-degrees close circuit television (CCTV) cameras at strategic locations across the test centre. Real-time footage from these cameras will be streamed back to the AutOnomous VehicLe MonItoring and EValuation SystEm (OLIVE) at LTA’s Intelligent Transport Systems Centre. Through OLIVE, LTA will be able to integrate data from AVs and the CCTVs to evaluate the readiness of AVs for public use. Please refer to the Annex for the Test Centre’s layout and detailed features.
Pixel Studios by The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) is the first dedicated facility in Singapore to spur the next generation of digital content creators and media professionals to explore innovative ways of content creation and storytelling.
Spearheaded by IMDA and managed by Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), the 25,000 sq ft space located at the Pixel building in one-north, is one of IMDA’s PIXEL (Promising Innovations and Experiential Learning) innovation spaces.
By providing a full suite of facilities and resources backed by capability development programmes with industry partners, Pixel Studios aims to build a community of creators and create opportunities for collaboration across the creative ecosystem.
Collaborative areas, production and technology tools at Pixel Studios will support content creators to experiment and innovate with content and technology. Facilities at Pixel Studios include thematic spaces that can double up as sets for filming and production purposes. For example, meeting and seminar rooms are dressed up as a vintage diner, a kopitiam-themed area with a stage for meeting and presentations, a bar-themed area, a kitchen studio, a relaxation corner and screening area, hot desking spaces, and make-up and changing rooms.
The space will also cater to a larger community of game start-ups. They will enjoy more physical space, with an approximate forty per cent increase in floor area compared to the former Games Solution Centre’s premises at Block 71.
Production and technology tools to support experimentation will include a green screen studio equipped with professional video equipment, editing tools such as video post-editing, recording and audio post-production suites; VR/AR gear, as well as game engines.
To grow the community, digital content creators and professionals interested in creating experimental content or pilots, are welcome to explore and use the space by submitting a proposal on the official website, www.IMPIXEL.sg.
