Perhaps lost in the shuffle of a difficult week, a peculiar and exciting milestone made its way into a few official school updates. During last week’s meeting, our elected board unanimously voted to approve the new campus reconstruction project that has been years in the making. Though seniors may not reap the immediate benefits, other students should prepare to see a lot of change in the physical classrooms, fields, dining halls, and events spaces where we spend a good part of our daily lives.
Perhaps now, more than ever, it makes sense to look back and reflect on what we’re about to lose (while celebrating what we are positioned to gain.) Though much of our school’s history is documented within the heritage walk of the central administration building, a few veteran staffers at SAS can still recount, first hand, their early experiences at “another SAS.” Singapore American School has grown from having a campus at Ulu Pandan to King’s Road and then to its current home at Woodlands.
Eye Reporters Lily Pan and Mitali Singh interviewed Mr. Early, Dr. Began and Ms. Pong about their experiences teaching at the Ulu Pandan and King’s Road Campuses. And, we spoke to much newer teachers — Mr. Belcher and Ms. Pate — on their experience teaching at the current home of SAS, the Woodlands Campus. So sit back and enjoy this trip down memory lane exploring the the different phases of the Singapore American School Campuses from Ulu Pandan and King’s Road, to Woodlands and now to the upcoming modern spin that envisions the SAS of the future.
