More Room for Discovery and Growth in Enhanced Infrastructure for Primary Schools

05 Apr 2011

Forty primary schools can look forward to spanking new sports and performance facilities over the next few years, as MOE rolls out hardware that will support the delivery of holistic education through interactive learning and the nurturing of soft skills. The result of recommendations by the Primary Education Review and Implementation (PERI) Committee, these ongoing upgrades will make it a norm for primary schools to have a band room, dance studio, performing arts studio, an indoor sports hall and an outdoor jogging path.

For a glimpse into the future of primary education in Singapore, here's a selection of scenes from schools that are making full use of their enhanced infrastructure to develop the minds, body and social skills of their pupils.
