Assumption English School students, led by their teachers, Mr Rene Loh (left) and Ms Bhavaniswari Batumalia (far right), walked 6km from Queensway to their newly rebuilt school in Bukit Timah yesterday. The new school year starts on Monday. The school had occupied a temporary site in Queensway for the past two years while its building in Upper Bukit Timah Road was undergoing a $40 million upgrade. Yesterday, 250 students and their teachers walked from Queensway to King Albert Park before hopping on the new Downtown Line to Cashew MRT station, which is near their school. The new building features a synthetic football field, a dance studio, an indoor sports hall with basketball and badminton courts, among other amenities.
