MWS Girlsʼ Residence moves from St Georgeʼs Lane to Upper Thomson
In April 2021, after 3 years of extensive refurbishments, MWS Girlsʼ Residence finally moved into its new home at 600 Upper Thomson Road, Block A. The girls now enjoy a more spacious and homely environment housed in a double-storied building.
Instead of dormitories, the girls now rest in cosy bedrooms. There are also more therapy rooms, a larger library and a high-ceiling multi-purpose hall fitted with full-length mirrors designed for various programmes.
In line with the Residenceʼs trauma-informed care approach, the overall layout and space use, furnishings and colours are designed to promote a sense of calm, safety and dignity. The residents were also involved in choosing the new furniture, and designing the look and feel of the Chill-out and Lounge area.
