HCJC & RJC to go independent; Outram & Jurong Institutes to merge

To foster greater diversity in the pre-university sector to better cater to the different aptitudes of students, the Ministry of Education (MOE) will:

a.  Merge the two existing Centralised Institutes (CIs), viz. Jurong Institute and Outram Institute, into a single institute with effect from 1 Jan 2004 to enhance the delivery of the three-year pre-university education programme; and
b.  Allow Hwa Chong Junior College (HCJC) and Raffles Junior College (RJC) to become independent with effect from 1 Jan 2004 and 1 Jan 2005 respectively.

In addition, the Ministry of Education will extend the coverage of existing Edusave Scholarships and introduce new Edusave Scholarships to students in schools offering Integrated Programmes (IP).

Merger of Centralised Institutes

The two CIs - Jurong Institute and Outram Institute - will be merged into a single institute with effect from 1 Jan 2004.

The merger will enhance the delivery of the three-year pre-university education programme. The merged institute will be given new premises which have additional and improved facilities. Located at Bukit Batok West Avenue 3, it will be ready in 2007. During the interim period, the merged institute will continue to operate at existing premises of the two CIs.

The merger will allow the two institutes to consolidate their expertise and teaching resources, and provide their students with more customised programmes and facilities that better meet their needs.

Independent Status for Two JCs

MOE has approved the applications from HCJC and RJC to become independent from 1 Jan 2004 and 1 Jan 2005 respectively.

The two JCs, together with their affiliated secondary schools, will offer the IP from Jan 2004. Having the same independent status as their respective affiliated secondary schools will allow for closer integration of the affiliated schools, and give them greater autonomy in the delivery of their IP.
