One of my pals, a former Saint himself, has a son who has joined One Minute Fame on Kids Central . Davy, the kid's name, plays a modified drum-set amazingly well to the tune of contemporary music.

St Andrew's Village provides 10-12 years of education programme

SINGAPORE : A new concept of 'cross-institutional' learning was launched on Saturday - with the official opening of the St Andrew's Village.

By integrating kindergarten, primary, secondary and pre-university education all under one roof, St Andrew's Village is the first school in Singapore to provide the unique education programme of 10 to 12 years.

Students from the St Andrew's schools have lots to sing about.
With the opening of the St Andrew's Village, they are now part of a unique brand of education that sees them through 10 to 12 years of their formative age at one institution.

The village sprawls over 12-hectares. It comprises Ascension Kindergarten, St Andrew's Junior, Secondary Schools, and Junior College which is reclocated from its site in Alexandra Road.

The village houses some 6,000 students and staff - and a river runs through it!

The St Andrew's Schools adopted the Kallang River, and even built a bridge over it to link the Junior and Secondary Schools with its new Junior College Wing.

Officiating its opening where he sealed a time capsule filled with memorabilia and artefacts of the schools, Education Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam challenged the village to prototype for Singapore a 'total school experience'.

He also invited the village to embrace the spirit of a global world.

He said St Andrew's could create unique educational opportunities by twinning with schools in other countries, and help nurture the cultural flexibility that young Singaporeans will need in the new environment.

At the same time, he encouraged the village to show how the interdependence of school and community can lead to a new, enriched model of education.

Old Boys of the school agree the village helps nurture loyalty.

Mr Michael Palmer, St Andrew's Old Boy (1973-1986), said: "When you have a three-in-one school or schools altogether, you give a sense of ownership and belonging to your school.

"And what is important is not the sense of ownership and belonging to the school per se, but it is inculcating in the young, the students ... a belief in a cause or a belonging to their institution or association that you are willing to fight for.

"A lot of us in the alumni are very dedicated, we always come back when the school calls ... we feel that sense of belonging and ownership. When we lose in a rugby (match), we all cry together. When we win, we rejoice together."

Mr S. Iswaran, Minister of State for Trade and Industry and St Andrew's Old Boy (1965-1978), said: "When you co-locate institutions like this, the opportunities exist both for the educators and the students to co-mingle and attempt activities and ventures across the traditional institution device.

"I think it is very good. For the younger students, it is a chance for them to learn from their more mature seniors. And for the seniors, they create a nurturing, mentoring kind of mindset. So there is a lot of potential to that."

St Andrew's School was founded by Anglican missionaries in 1862. - CNA/de

Came across this installation in one of the toilets in -- yes it's true! -- a few days back. Whoever did this, I hope you'd washed your hands real well. :)
