Dear Caregivers & Partners,
Welcome to our website. We hope to show you the range of programmes and services we provide our students in Fernvale Gardens School, a special school set up in the Sengkang area and which began in 2008. Every child that walks through our doors is special to us, and we look at how we can build on their current strengths as individuals to help them be as independent as they can be.
We have a robust curriculum, shared amongst the MINDS Schools, which caters to the needs of our students. This curriculum helps to build our students’ confidence in essential skills such as communication, use of numeracy skills, socialisation and self-care, all taught in a very functional manner to help them make the skills relevant in their daily lives. It also prepares individuals to meet the challenges and opportunities of today’s world.
Students are given the necessary support physically or structurally as the need might be. Students also pick up vocational and recreational skills, which are important in helping them remain engaged with the community. We also give equal emphasis to the development of skills in IT, sports, the arts, and the sciences.
We believe in working closely with caregivers in bringing out the best in their children. We also work with the community around with a firm belief that our students need to be active members of the community they live in. With support from our partners, we believe we can create opportunities for our students to shine, to grow in confidence, and show the world their unique abilities.
I welcome you to explore our website further, and if you prefer a closer look, feel free to call us to arrange an appointment. If you want to have an opportunity to work with our students, you are welcome to join us as a volunteer. I also wish to take this opportunity to thank all our stakeholders for their contributions towards the well-being and development of every single student at Fernvale Gardens School.
Life at FGS is filled with amazing fun and discovery. Our students are constantly engaged through programmes, and learning experiences thoughtfully crafted to develop their skills critical for continued success while nurturing their interests and talents.
Our robust co-curricular activities provide our students a safe space to engage in their interests and passion while fostering a sense of belonging by connecting them with students of shared interest.
MINDS had done a fabulous job in educating my kid and supported her in school as well as her workplace. The school always encouraged her, push her learning abilities, and mould her skill sets as well as her confidence. With these, we are very grateful to the school and her teachers.
As a working mum, the school teachers constantly update me and a catch up in school to organise talk about my child’s progress and understanding more about what the school has put up.
