Tembusu Mentors

tMentors is a Local CIP (LoCIP) group based in Tembusu college that provides academic mentoring, enrichment sessions, and tertiary education guidance for secondary school students. We currently provide mentoring for graduating students of New Town Secondary School (NTSS), and students of Ulu Pandan Stars.

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.
