From 2014, three new local primary schools will begin taking in pupils in Singapore. Find out what are the three new schools and where they are.
The Ministry of Education (MOE) has slated for the opening of three new primary schools around the island, where Primary 1 students can begin registration as early as next year. These three primary schools will have new design norms, as recommended by the Primary Education Review and Implementation Committee.
New facilities in the primary schools include redesigned classrooms, glossy performing arts studios and airy outdoor jogging paths. These aid in the holistic overall development of a child, where they can learn both academically and out of the classroom.
