Tampines East CC is designed to be the hub of cultural activity in the eastern part of Singapore.
It is the first CC in Singapore to house an air-conditioned auditorium with the latest acoustic and lighting systems. It is host to cultural performances, both local and from overseas.
The $7 million CC will be officially opened by Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong and Communications Minister Mah Bow Tan on May 5.
Its facilities include a complete gym and the Three-in-One Centre which comprises a childcare centre, a students' care centre, and an eldercare centre.
Its courses include ballet, English drama classes, abacus, aerobics and Tae Kwon Do.
The Changkat CC is built like an enormous Malay kampung house, with wide corridors and a roof peaked like that of an attap house.
The three-storey CC, being a centre for promoting Asian arts and crafts, has a large pottery room, a print-making room, a photography darkroom and an air-conditioned dance studio.
It was opened by Dr Aline Wong on November 19, 1988. The second phase development of the CC was completed in 1992.
Activities include abacus, piano, art, organ, Chinese Orchestra, guzheng, ballet and pottery.
It is the only centre to organise architectural-model building courses. These receive overwhelming support from residents all over Singapore.
