Names of Primary and Secondary Schools Merging Between 2022 and 2025

Published Date: 06 April 2022 02:00 PM

News Press Releases

1. In 2021, the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced that four pairs of primary schools and five pairs of secondary schools would be merged between 2022 and 20251. This is done in response to falling birth rates and changing demographics in our housing estates, so as to ensure that each school has an adequate number of students for a vibrant learning experience with a good range of educational programmes and co-curricular activities (CCAs).

2. Pioneer Primary School and Juying Primary School were merged in the beginning of the school year in 2022, while the remaining schools will be merged between 2023 and 2025. Please refer to the Annex for the names of the merged primary and secondary schools.

3. MOE worked closely with all the merging schools in the naming of merged schools. A range of factors were considered, including the schools' history and heritage, enrolment, final site of the merged schools, as well as stakeholders' interests and the sentiments of the schools involved.

4. The merged schools will encompass the identities, strengths and cherished distinctiveness of both merging schools. The history and heritage of both schools will be documented in a dedicated space in the merged school. MOE will continue to work closely with the schools to ensure a smooth transition for all students and staff, and in the process, forge a strong identity for the merged schools.

  1. In the April 2021 press release (https://www.moe.gov.sg/news/press-releases/20210407-school-mergers), MOE announced that the nine pairs of schools would be merged between 2022 to 2024. In July 2021 (https://www.moe.gov.sg/news/press-releases/20210726-delays-in-school-infrastructure-projects-due-to-covid-19-situation), it was announced that the merger of Woodlands Ring Secondary School and Fuchun Secondary School would be delayed by a year to January 2025.
