CCN has been developed to emphasise personal contact and rapport between lecturers and students, to create a family-like environment, and to maintain a caring culture so as to ensure students’ personal growth. The CCN Day Carnival, held twice a year, brings the entire polytechnic together in the spirit of caring and sharing. Staff and students collaborate to set up stalls to raise funds for TP’s students in need of financial aid.

Due to the evolving risk on COVID-19 and the temporary Circuit Breaker measure, we are moving all counselling and support services online. Student can still make appointment using the link provided. However, counselling sessions will take place through Microsoft Teams (video Conference). In order to do that, we need you to use your official student email account (@tp.edu.sg) when making an appointment. Your counsellor will contact you via email to make arrangement on video call.
If you really feel the need to meet physically, perhaps you can drop us an email and we will contact you to explore further.
We have moved some workshops and training online as well. Please look out for it in the student announcements. These arrangements will continue until further notification is made. We apologise for the inconvenience but appeal to you for understanding.
