Other school features and achievements

  School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos TKGS is dedicated to nurturing high achievers, leaders of character and women of grace. We are committed to nurturing leaders in the academic domain, sports and the arts. In doing so, we believe in the stewardship of talents, for which TKGians must learn to lead through ‘noble service’ and to ‘serve with honour’, as inspired by the school song penned by the first principal Ms Maude Scott in 1953. Anchored in ‘student-centred leadership’ as a key tenet, the school staff, students, alumni and parents are committed towards building a school of distinction.

Special Student Development Programmes Offered

The TKGS Curriculum aims to develop 3 distinct characteristics: (a)Leaders of Character, who lead from within in service of others: The TKGS leadership philosophy is founded on the belief that leadership is not about title, but that of self-leadership in service of others. Character & Citizenship Education is implemented through our LEGACY curriculum, CCA and VIA programme enabling girls to use the 6-step Community Problem Solving method to tackle community issues. The TKGS Truly! Programme helps students understand TKGS heritage and builds school pride, and the OBS Experience, Global Perspectives and Work Attachment Programmes complement our integrated approach to CCE. (b)High Achievers who are self-directed learners, demonstrating deep disciplinary understanding and leadership in the application of learning: Learning in the academic curriculum is structured around the Teaching for Understanding approach and multi-disciplinary project work. TKGS+ is a Programme for Leadership, Understanding and Stewardship, challenging TKGians to confront and tackle deeper concepts in authentic experiences beyond the classroom. There are 3 strands to TKGS+: Mathematics & Science, Languages & Humanities, and Music. TKGians offer Core and Elective Modules where they focus their learning on 21st century competencies, made possible through study trips and mentorship by professionals. TKGS is also the East Zone Centre of Excellence for English Language. (c)Women of Grace who are critical and inventive thinkers in their appreciation and pursuit of the arts: We nurture gracious women cultured in the arts through an enriched curriculum, infusing the Lincoln Center Education Capacities of Imaginative Learning into the lower sec curriculum and offering O Level Art, Music and Drama to talented TKGians. As a MEP school, we continue to be committed to nurturing budding musicians. In the tradition of excellence, all performing arts CCAs achieved Certificates of Distinction in the SYF 2015.
