Woodlands is delighted to confirm that we have finally sealed an agreement with UNIMAS to work in partnership with developing our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programme here at Woodlands. They will be providing staff training as well as providing us with the necessary tools to ensure success for Digital Makerspace. UNIMAS have come to measure up our STEM labs and assist us to maximise the design of these areas.
Did you know:
The programme will ensure Woodlands remains at the cutting edge of 21st Century education.
Please be assured that we will continue to promote all our subjects offered to ensure we meet all our students’ needs whether it is in Science, Maths, Languages or the Arts as part of our commitment to offering a personalised education.
Following the disappointment of our postponed Whole School Sports Day last month, we were determined that our students wouldn’t miss out.
To this end on Friday 3rd May our Early Years students enjoyed a variety of fun physical activities on our basketball court.
The students brought their Olympic torches for the March Past, before singing the National Anthem and warming up.
Lots of fun activities were in place to help develop the students’ gross motor skills and included a variety of locomotions. All our Early Year students were winners and each received participation medals for their endeavours.
Many thanks to Ms Shirly and all our Early Years staff for ensuring everyone had a great fun-filled morning.
On 21st May our Primary and Secondary students and teachers returned to the stadium to complete the rest of the events that were postponed. These included sprints of 40 metres, 60 metres and 4 x 50 metres and 100 metres relays, 1200 metres (Secondary), Mini obstacles (Primary) and our ever popular Tug of War.
The weather played along this time and we were blessed with fair weather. However, someone clearly prayed for clear weather till 11am because the rain came pouring down just as the medals were being presented. However, great fun was had by all and we thank those parents who took the time to come along to cheer on their children.
The Best Athletes in the various categories were awarded to:
|Category A||Tang Yan Yao||Jessica Choi|
|Category B||Richard Ling||Vidushi Nagori|
|Category C||Darren Chiu||Angelia Ling|
|Category D||Tang Yan Quon||Natasha Law|
|Category E||William Tiong|
The warm-up was conducted by Ms. Karlenn as usual. The younger students were really enthusiastic.
The last event of the day was the tug of war! It was fiercely contested and was eventually won as follows:
|Primary Tug of War||Rejang|
|Secondary Tug of War||Rain Forest|
The overall chmpions on the day (or two days) were:
|Third||Rain Forest||450 points|
Congratulations Rejang!!! The other three houses were really close together in terms of results. Maybe next year…..

Many thanks to Ms Tipah and Mr Bryan for organising and supervising a four day three night trip to historic Malacca for 20 lucky Years 7, 8 and 9 students.
Twenty students from Years 7, 8 and 9 went on a learning trip to Melaka from 13-16 May, 2019. They were accompanied by their History teacher, Ms. Tipah and the School Counselor, Mr. Bryan. In addition to the many learning experiences in Melaka, the group managed to visit a few important landmarks in Kuala Lumpur during their transit to Melaka on the first day. These landmarks included the Petronas Twin Towers, the Royal Palace (Istana Negara), and the Independence Square (Dataran Merdeka).
During the four days and three nights in Melaka, the students were exposed to a multitude of historical & cultural learning experiences including visitations to the Baba & Nyonya Museum, Cheng Ho’s Cultural Museum, Mini Malaysia & ASEAN Cultural Park, A’Famosa Fort, Stadthuys, St. Paul’s Church, Maritime Museum, and Christ Church. The students also enjoyed exploring Jonker Walk and trying Nyonya cuisines as part of their cultural enrichment experience.
Additionally, the students were also provided with the opportunity to expand their scientific knowledge with visitations to the Shore Oceanarium and the Malacca Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary, while also sparing time for some fun & adventure at the SYTREX Adventure Park, Sky Tower, Huskitory, and Klebang Beach. Some of their pictures are included below thanks to Mr. Bryan.
