Dear Caregivers & Partners,
Welcome to our website. We hope to show you the range of programmes and services we provide our students in Lee Kong Chian Gardens School, a special school in the Margaret Drive area with a history of nurturing children with special needs since 1969. 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 support students with intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder.
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 Lee Kong Chian Gardens School.
Life at LGS 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.
The school provides a balanced education, placing equal importance to both the academic aspect as well as character and citizenship education. Values education is also strongly emphasised and infused into the core curriculum and various school programmes. Students are constantly reminded of the school’s values and are provided opportunities for them to exercise and exhibit these values. Our AWESOME programme is one such programme that gives recognition to students who exhibit good character and values.
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.
The school's curriculum has effectively helped our son to live a normal life. The support given by the school to special children like our son is remarkable. Our family was overjoyed when he joined sports, choir as well as being an active student leader in school.
We were glad that he was accepted to work at Park Royal Hotel. It's a big achievement for our son who we never thought would work in the mainstream. Thank you so much to all these teachers and the school.
The school gave their 100 percent to boost my son's morale, confidence, ego, skills, abilities, good manners, and proper conduct. The teachers' enthusiasm didn't stop at the school premises. They find time to monitor and help their students even post-school.
Jeremy attended speech and occupational therapy classes at school. The therapist always reach out to me to provide feedback on his progress and pass on to me many materials to work with Jeremy so that his learning can be continuously reinforced at home.
I also find Lee Kong Chian Garden School's support staff very committed to helping students and parents to ensure our safety whenever we are in school premises. We always feel warm, welcome and secure at LGS.
