Tanglin Trust School in Singapore’s Central region has been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) for its commitment to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing across the school community. The WAS is an award run by the National Children’s Bureau in the UK to recognise the exceptional work that schools do in this area.

Tanglin is a popular, not-for-profit, all-through school that enrols more than 2,800 students from nursery through to sixth form. The WAS inspection team described the school as “a very welcoming, nurturing and happy school with staff who are motivated, highly professional and want the very best for the students in their care”. It praised the “broad, balanced and enriched curriculum”, “confident and motivated learners”, and strong communication with parents.

Since October 2017, Tanglin’s WAS Change Team has focused on promoting wellbeing as part of day-to-day school life and developing a whole school strategy for improving the wellbeing of pupils. This has included developing its Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) and Lifeskills curriculum.

Tanglin has also expanded its ParentWise programme. During the last year alone, the school has hosted more than 60 courses, information sessions and workshops covering four main themes: Educational and Curriculum Support, Parent and Student Wellbeing, Hot Button Topics and Inspirational Speakers.

Craig Considine, CEO of Tanglin said: “Following a stakeholder survey, our specific aims included being clearer on what we mean by ‘wellbeing’, making the school a safe place in which to talk about our own wellbeing, and feeling equipped with a range of strategies to effectively support others wellbeing (adults and young people).”

Considine added: “Wellbeing remains very high on our agenda and there is more work to do, but it is wonderful to have this validation of our efforts so far.”
