Pathlight Official Opening

Pathlight Official Opening


Pathlight School



Although all Pathlight’s staff and operations started at the new site 1 Jun last year, the new Pathlight School will have its official opening tomorrow on 27th April 2010.  It marks a new milestone in Singapore for autism achievement.   Pathlight is an autism-focused school that offers mainstream academic curriculum.


The constant requests from parents to expand the teaching staffs and compound as well as complaints from parents of the lack of vacancy in the old school had finally been answered and resolved to a certain degree with the new Pathlight.  Thanks to the continuous improvement from Pathlight and the establishment of the new compound, it will be able to take in more children with autism, with no compromise to its educational quality.


In 2007, Pathlight started with 354 students and that is a 860% growth since 2004 when it only had 10 teaching staff and 41 students. This year, the number of students enrolled in Pathlight continued to grow and in March 2010 reached a total of 556 students.    


Many Thanks…

In recent Straits Time Forum, “Thanks to all who helped Pathlight” Chan Yook Lin (Madam), had commented her heartfelt appreciation.   The feeling is mutual among most parents, guardians, teachers and me! 

She said:

To everyone in Pathlight, especially the teachers, I salute you. No words can express my appreciation of your devotion and dedication. I thank you for loving my son so unconditionally and for passionately helping him to maximise his potential.


This and the new Pathlight school are the testaments of Pathlight’s continued growth and dedication to the autism community.   Thanks Pathlight!

Fond Memories of Old Pathlight

Although pale compare to the new compound, the old Pathlight compound served its purpose and many teachers, parents and children will retain their good memories forever.  Here are some flashbacks.

    the old PL is really a place chock-full of nostalgia for me. It was where a whole new world in terms of career and life options, opened up to me. Thanks for this update, Michael!
