Enhancing Infrastructure to support Holistic Education
Assumption English School (AES), formerly known as Boys’ Town English School (BTES), was founded in 1953 by the Monfort Brothers of St Gabriel. The school, together with Assumption Pathway School (APS) and Boys’ Town Home (BTH), form the three components of Boys’ Town, dedicated to providing guidance, shelter, education, vocational training and practical living skills to youths. Over the years, the school has become a Coeducational Catholic Mission School, and the school remains true to the Founder’s mission and continues to help many disadvantaged youths get an education and to develop them into good and contributing citizens.
The additional facilities in the school will provide opportunities for every Assumptionite to harness their full potential. With the increase in the number of classrooms, the school will be able to further customise our teaching and learning pedagogies to cater to students with differing needs and abilities; guiding them to excel academically.
- The upgraded facilities such as the Indoor Sports Hall will allow students to develop their physical and sporting talents;
- Students will definitely benefit from the revamped coursework studios for Design & Technology, Art and Food Science Nutrition subjects; preparing them for their post secondary education;
- The Performing Arts Groups such as dance, speech and drama and music will have ample opportunities to showcase their artistic talents with an Amphitheatre built on the school grounds.
The overall improved school infrastructure will allow each and every student to have a holistic educational experience that will equip him or her with strong values, relevant skills, a passion for gaining knowledge throughout their lives and the positive attitude to make a difference.
1. What is the fund raising for?
Funds raised goes to the building of our new school facilities at the Upper Bukit Timah campus to provide a conducive environment for learning and growth of our Assumptionites.
2. When will the new school building be ready?
AES is currently at the holding site at Queensway and will be there till 2015. Once ready, AES will move back to the Upper Bukit Timah campus.
3. Why does AES have to raise fund?
Being a government-aided school, AES is required to pay 5% of the total cost of the PRIME project, that is, a total of S$1.89 million. We hope to achieve this target by 2016.
60 years ago till today, AES is in existence due to the strong and ardent support from the public and people of goodwill. We humbly appeal to all who share the same mission of educating our youth to strongly support us.
