Slim School


"Upon the hill top stands a guiding light"

Welcome to Janet Bothner-By's (nee Levien ) Photos from Tanglin School.

These photos from Janet are pre Slim days and date back to 1946 and are a really interesting era pre dating the Slim we know, but looking at them you can see how similar the school was then and when we were there.

I would like to thank Janet for making these photos available to me to use and I trust that you will enjoy them. If anyone would like to contact Janet you can do so by clicking on the email link below.
