Love Tembusu

Love Tembusu is a mental wellbeing advocacy group that aims to educate, destigmatise and provide a safe space for Tembusians talk about mental health. We organise 2 main categories of events: the first being initiatives which promote mental health discussions - like informal mental health conversations, peer support skill workshops and student teas with experts, and the second being de-stressing activities - like art therapy workshops by professionals, and wellness workshops in collaboration with other IGs. We also manage The Oasis, Tembusu's very own mental wellness room, that contains bean bags, a water fountain, a sensory relaxation station, and more! Any Tembu student can use the room at any time to destress or relax in! Join us to learn more about how you can help make Tembu a warmer and homelier place!

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
