SINGAPORE — Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) [ACS(P)] will be relocated to Tengah in 2030 and turn co-educational, the Ministry of Education (MOE) said on Thursday (Feb 9).

It will also be situated next to the campus of a new special education school, which will be co-run by ACS and Methodist Welfare Society, that will be ready in 2031.

Under the plan for ACS, students who are already enrolled in the Barker campus now will not have to relocate to the new Tengah campus. ACS added that the decision for co-education at the Tengah campus was aimed at providing both male and female students"with the opportunity to receive a well-rounded primary school education without being constrained by school options in the new neighbourhood".ACS is a popular school and has a reputation for drawing in students who come from families from higher socioeconomic classes, especially as its current location is one that is dominated by private housing.

The opening and relocation of new schools at these, three regions, namely Tengah, Bukit Batok West and Sengkang, will also ensure a good geographical spread of schools and continue MOE’s efforts in offering quality special education, the ministry said.A new primary school will then be opened in Tengah in 2028, so that the developing area will have three primary schools by 2030. The name of this third primary school will be announced at a later date.

This is the first time that a mainstream school and a Sped school are being located next to each other, which will allow greater partnership between the two schools and more opportunities for students to interact with each other, MOE said.

Accrediting commissions for schools

No problem. Those pupils have rich parents. So transportation wise totally not an issue.

They can exhumed tombs to built mrt what is this small shift to tengah at least the name still remains...Some names are closed and remain history.

Imagine, a press con about a school changing address. Pathetic.

There is room for change in this whole new post-covid era. ACS takes the first move. What about the other heritage schools? Still holding to the old British colony style of gender segregation, which is a luxury in the country given the birth rate situation.
