Two special education schools serving students with mild intellectual disability will move to an expanded, co-located campus in 2025, the Education Ministry (MOE) said on Thursday (Nov 5). They are Chaoyang School in Ang Mo Kio, which serves primary school students, and Tanglin School in Bukit Merah serving secondary school students. Both schools will move to a new site at the former Da Qiao Primary School in Ang Mo Kio, MOE said in a press release. This is to help meet demand for student places in the north-east and central region, the ministry said. Student capacity will be expanded with the redevelopment, with Chaoyang School to provide 400 places and Tanglin School to provide 350 places. … The new purpose-built campus will have enhanced building specifications, including larger classrooms and modulation spaces, to cater to students with minor intellectual disability including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), MOE said.
