Leader in Us! – A Peer Support & Relationships (PSR) Programme
Leveraging on Blangah Rise’s distinctive Leader in Me programme, we further enhance students’ application of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids for personal and inter-personal effectiveness through the implementation of the Leader in Us Programme.
Students contribute to the caring and positive peer culture in school when they look out for one another, provide support to their peers in need and build positive relationships with one another. See below for the benefits of leveraging on positive peer relationships.
To better narrate the stories and excerpts pertaining to Peer Support in Blangah Rise, five characters have been created to represent our students. Students are able to relate to these characters and learn about peer support in concrete ways.
Collectively, these five characters are known as The Fabulous Five. Together, The Fabulous Five will embark on a meaningful journey with the students as they equip themselves with useful skills and knowledge to support their peers better!

The Green Snapshots – A Nature & Heritage Trail
The Green Snapshots (TGS) is a nature and heritage trail organised by Blangah Rise Primary School for nature and history enthusiasts. It is built on the school’s Learning for Life (LLP) programme, which weaves nature into the curriculum and provides experiential learning activities for our students. It is a learning journey led by our student-docents to share with participants the rich nature and heritage of Telok Blangah and Mount Faber. The interesting information shared includes facts about historical landmarks such as the Temenggong Mosque and even kampong remedies made from plants in the area.
In support of SG Bicentennial, the school launched a special edition comprising new hotspots and engaging hands-on activities. A long-time resident of Telok Blangah, Mrs Teh-Ooi Gim Siew, shared with us that despite urban developments, the estate has managed to stay tranquil and green. At Mount Faber View, participants took time to pen their dreams for Singapore. Ms C. Dharani wrote, “I would like us to live as a harmonious community despite differences we may face. I would also like Singaporeans to be friendlier to each other and to the environment.” Likewise, our student-docent, 12-year-old Nick, also envisioned “a Singapore where our environment and heritage are conserved for future generations.”
For our continued advocacy for heritage education and sustained partnership through The Green Snapshots, our school was awarded the School Heritage Champion Award (Silver) by the National Heritage Board (NHB).
