In 1989, Singapore Chinese Girls’ Primary School (SCGPS) celebrated its 90th birthday and became an independent school. This meant greater autonomy in curricular innovations, implementation of school programmes, administration, student admissions and the setting of fee structures. This also means that scholarships, both from the MOE and the schools, are available to students who have done well and wish to join the school.
With pride, passion and purpose, SCGPS embraces the new era of preparing girls to be world-ready for a global future with several programs introduced to nurture new skills and competencies. An example is the Enhanced Word Recognition Programme for mastery of the Chinese language that was introduced to Lower Primary pupils. The SC Model UN Conference and Open Little Eyes Symposium were also launched, in addition to the inaugural National Young Women Leaders’ Day in 2013.
SCGPS pupils are affiliated to SCGS and will thus have priority admission with lower entry scores. Catholic High School, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School and Singapore Chinese Girls’ School have also started offering both the GCE ‘O’ Level Programme and the Joint Integrated Programme. The Joint IP will lead up to the GCE ‘A’ Level Programme offered at Eunoia Junior College.
