Greetings from MINDS Towner Gardens School, the first purpose-built special school in Singapore. Welcome to our vibrant webpage showcasing our exciting programmes, Co-curricular Activities and events. As the school believes in meeting the needs and supports the learning of the special needs students, it has grown from strength to strength. It is the belief that we can and are able to make the difference in the lives of students with special needs that has driven us to what MINDS Towner Gardens is today.
Currently, our school supports students with intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder. We offer a variety of Co-curricular activities and exciting programmes to stretch the potential of the students cognitively, emotionally and physically. We provide ample opportunities for students to participate in the community and learn to navigate themselves in the real world with support from the school. We believe that our students should be included in every facet of the society. This is why our students’ learning has taken them beyond their classrooms, achieved through working together with our partners in the community.
From our website you can see the success, happiness and achievements of the students, staff and school. As students are the centre of our focus, you will find their ability and talents showcased more prominently here. Do contact us if you require more information or want to visit our school. Do stay safe and take care.
Students at TGS experience a myriad of exciting events and activities to foster holistic learning and character development within and beyond their classroom. Embodying the belief that each and every individual has the potential to succeed, we have various departments to cultivate different niche areas in students.
To provide them with a variety of learning experiences, we organise sporting events, field trips to community, healthy lifestyle programmes, thematic events revolving functional literacy, numeracy, science, and IT skills that inspire endless imaginations for our students. We celebrate success at work with community participations and ensure our students learn in many exceptional and interesting contexts that are uniquely Towner.
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.
Elkan has improved so much and becomes more independent since joining MINDS. The greatest improvement, he’s able to independently come home from school, which we thought was never possible. This is only achieved through the continuous effort and dedication of MINDS’s teachers. MINDS’s teachers are so committed in their teaching and imparting knowledge and skills towards their students. It takes more than dedication to coach these children with special needs, it’s the love, humanity, devotion, compassion the teachers possess that make the difference.
I am grateful that Naqib was selected to MINDS Towner Gardens school. There is no looking back since then as everything was great! Naqib likes to go to school and his teacher feedbacks that he enjoys his classroom lesson. Though at times he is a bit mischievous.😁 Throughout the year Naqib had wonderful form teachers who communicate and update on Naqib's progress. My compliment to all the TGS teachers for their dedication and caring environment to nurture Naqib to be independent so that he can integrate with the society in the future.
TGS has provided my child an adapted learning environment based on his ability in working towards achieving independence. We are happy to partner alongside with the teachers who are mostly patient and engaging.
