Methodist Girls School

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.

Families at the Primary 1 Picnic

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 student.

Partnership with Veolia Environmental Services

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 seas.

The enduring partnerships that MGS has cultivated through the years are the key to nurturing Godly Women of Excellence with a Heart of Love.
