The school is at the junction of Street 82 and Tampines Ave 3, with the school’s main entrance gate on Tampines Street 82, and an exit gate and a separate pedestrian entrance/exit gate on Tampines Avenue 3.

There is a third entrance/exit gate on Tampines Ave 4 that leads to a separate compound of the school, where teachers normally park their cars. The compound serves a building with the school’s only lift or elevator.

By Car to School

The only legal approach by car to the school’s entrance gate is from Tampines Ave 4 turning into Tampines Street 82 and taking a loop to the entrance gate of the school. It is illegal to turn in from Tampines 3 into Tampines Street 82 to turn right into the school.

If you are driving:

  1. Please ensure you display the Church Car Label on your vehicle’s windscreen. As we are responsible for the school’s security we will only allow in cars with church labels. If you still do not have the Church Car Label, please register for one now. For your visitors who drive, do let us have their names and registration plate numbers in advance.
  2. The elderly who are normally driven to church should apply for Blue Labels that will allow their vehicles to access the Zone 1 compound on Tampines Ave 4. There is an elevator in Zone 1 to bring them up to the worship hall. There are only a limited number of Blue Labels. Please understand that if demand exceeds supply the church will have the final say on the successful applications.
  3. Members with Red Labels are to also park in Zone 1.

School Car Park
With double parking, the school’s car park can take up to 100 cars. This likely meets all our needs. Please note that with morning service at the nearby Lighthouse, Street 82 will be congested from 930am.

The parking grounds of the primary school will be divided into three zones.

Zooming down to the three car zones:
ST_Tampines_4

Zone 1 is located at the rear of the school in a separate compound. It will be reserved for the chartered buses as well as Red Label and Blue Label cars. This is because there is a lift to the worship hall from Level 1 where the cars and buses are parked.

Zone 2 is for E1 cars only. About 40 cars can be parked here, starting from the school’s exit gate on Tampines Ave 3.

4. Zone 2 is located before the exit gate on Tampines Ave 3

E2/E3 cars will start parking in Zone 3 first ie, the quadrangle after the entrance gate. When E1 cars move out of Zone 2 after E1 service, E2/E3 cars will be directed there.
