To Guide, to Bridge, and to Serve
A group of passionate alumni started the Rulang Alumni Association in 1998 and the feelings of attachment have been strong through the years. The Alumni Association’s first president was Mr Chew Chin Seng who helmed the association from its inception to 2002 after which the mantle of leadership was passed on to Mr Tan Teck Yoke who led the association to 2016, after serving the association for 14 years. Mr Wee Hang Yong was elected to be the third president of the society in 2016.
The main objectives of the association are to promote fellowship among members of the Rulang Alumni to show love and commitment for our alma mater, to create a better understanding of the school and to seek opportunities to collaborate with the school to provide a holistic education for the pupils.
The Alumni Association has been instrumental in contributing to the school’s progress from a village school to a school of excellence through the provision of financial and expert support for the school's talent development programmes. The Alumni Association has been sponsoring pupils for the CCA Individual Outstanding Achievement Award, Student All-Round Achievement Award, scholarships for the top 3 pupils from Primary 1 to Primary 6 and the Passion Fund for pupils selected for the GEP programme. We have also provided sponsorship to the school’s various programmes, for example, the publication of the CELL (Citizenship, Entrepreneurship, Leadership Learning) Booklet for the school’s Character Development Programme since 2007 as well as the action research carried out by the school's student leaders.
Seeing the Alumni Association working in tandem and supporting their alma mater has served to inspire and develop in Rulangnites graciousness and a sense of altruism.
