About Tampines



 is the largest residential area in the city-state of Singapore. It is the second largest commercial hub outside the Central Region of Singapore after the Jurong Lake District. It is situated in the East Region of the main island. The town is so named because in the 1900s (decade) a large forest of ironwood trees, or tempinis, were there.

Like other districts in Singapore, it is densely populated with the population density higher than other housing districts. Tampines New Town is a regional centre that lies to the east of Singapore's city centre, much like the centrally located Orchard Road.





The 12 primary schools, nine secondary schools, two tertiary institutions (one junior college and one polytechnic), and one international school to provide education for Tampines residents and those living in the region. There are plans to add new schools in Tampines due to a high demand in the East Region of the city-state of Singapore. Due to the drastic decline in student enrolment numbers over the years, the current Qiaonan Primary School and Griffiths Primary School in Tampines will merge to form Angsana Primary School in 2015. Angsana Primary School will help to build the rich histories of both schools and prepare pupils to be of good character.
