Blangah Rise Primary School Bicentennial Coffee Table Book

Blangah Rise Primary School and MOE Kindergarten @ Blangah Rise have produced a coffee table book entitled “Singapore Through Children’s Eyes”.

The book is an effort to engage our children in the commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial. As the school is located in Telok Blangah, a large part of the book is devoted to the history of Telok Blangah. The book chapters include children's responses to old images and historical facts of Telok Blangah, interviews of long-time residents of Telok Blangah, children's photographs and reflections on iconic places in Singapore, and their hopes and aspirations for the future of Singapore. The book ends with an extension of “Telok Blangah”, a song written by Singapore singer-songwriter and film music composer, Kevin Mathews, using content from the earlier chapters.

President Halimah Yacob has written a foreword for the book. The book is also supported by the Singapore Bicentennial Office. Each book costs $40 and all proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards President’s Challenge.
