Information Sheet

PRIME Phase 6


1. Nine more schools will be upgraded under the sixth phase of the Programme for Rebuilding and IMproving Existing Schools (PRIME).  Upgrading works for the schools will be completed between Jun 2006 and Dec 2007.  Please see the list of schools at the Annex.


2. PRIME was launched by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in May 1999.  Its objective is to upgrade all schools to current standards so as to provide a conducive learning environment for our students.  Estimated to cost $4.5 billion, this programme will be implemented in phases.  To date, 201 schools have been included in the earlier five phases of PRIME.  Of these, 142 have completed their upgrading.

3. Under PRIME, schools will be fitted with new and upgraded facilities, which include computer laboratories, media resource libraries, IT learning resource rooms, pastoral care rooms and health & fitness rooms.  Schools will be networked for access to Internet.  Teachers and students can also look forward to bigger classrooms and staff-rooms, and more interaction areas. 

4. The selection of schools for PRIME takes into account the goal of allowing as many of our students to benefit from the latest school facilities, the need to ensure financial prudence and value for money as well as the availability of holding sites, if necessary.

5. For further information, please access the PRIME website at http://www.moe.gov.sg/prime/ or call the MOE Customer Service Hotline at Tel: 6872 2220 (during office hours).
