MGS has been conferred the Outstanding PARTNERS Award 2010.
At Methodist Girls School, it is the priority to engage parents, the alumnae
association, partners in industry and the community, and many other stakeholders
in adding value to the learning experience and environment. MGS appreciates the
essential role of its partners-in-education in helping the girls Master, Grow
and Serve as responsible citizens of Singapore and the world.
The MGS partners provide ample opportunities and resources beyond the
classroom so that the students benefit from an education that is rigorous,
relevant and responsive—the students appreciate that it is their duty to make
the difference in a world where stability and peace are fragile. Supported by
adults in every sphere of their learning, they cultivate the skills and ethics
to build a better tomorrow.
MGS maintains a culture of open communication with its stakeholders and
partners. The lines of communication include events like Parents’ Networking
Night, Level Briefing sessions, Family Night, Parent-Teacher Meetings, talks for
prospective students, school newsletter (MGeSpirit), school yearbook, corporate
videos, brochures and school website. Regular correspondence (via letters or
emails, and through Class teachers, HODs and the Principal) is structured to
keep partners and stakeholders informed on all matters concerning the MGS
The cornerstone of the MGS community is made of the Methodist Church,
ParentLink, of which every parent is automatically a member, the Board of
Management, and the MGS Alumnae Association. Beyond the school, MGS collaborates
with partners in industry, in education and in the larger community on both the
national and international level. All its flagship programmes—the Regional Youth
Conference, the Sophia Blackmore Lectures, Reality Outside Classrooms (ROCs) ,
Work Experience—are helmed by partners in industry such as PUB, MCYS, Toa Payoh
Central GRO, National Parks and others; the Science Mentorship scheme, Twinning
Programmes with overseas partner schools, all provide MGS the perspectives and
capacity to attain excellence in education.
MGS and its partners continue to collaborate in activities which are mutually
beneficial in every sector of society—the natural environment, the community of
elderly folks and children in need, National Cancer Centre Singapore, St Luke’s
Hospital, Touch Community, the Prison Fellowship etc. The school makes it
possible for students and staff to nurture a global outlook through Twinning and
exchange programmes with institutions overseas and on learning journeys across
The enduring partnerships that MGS has cultivated through the years are the
key to nurturing Godly Women of Excellence with a Heart of Love.
