New school principals appointed


Seventh Principals' Appointment Ceremony

The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be appointing 70 Principals at the Seventh Principalsí Appointment Ceremony to be held on 30 Dec 04.
This comprises 41 newly appointed principals and 29 serving principals who will take up appointments in another school (please refer to Annex A for the details).
Now in its seventh year, the Appointment Ceremony for Principals is a key event organised by MOE to acknowledge the important role Principals play in building effective schools to achieve the Desired Outcomes of Education.
The ceremony reflects the trust and responsibility that MOE confers on these senior education officers in school leadership.
The Ministry's systematic process of appointment and rotation of principals not only enables schools to benefit from the infusion of fresh perspectives, but gives Education Officers opportunities to take on different challenges as part of their career development.
Principals are key to shaping and strengthening the traditions and ethos of the schools. They form the nexus between people and systems.
While upholding the cherished traditions of the schools they have been entrusted with, Principals will inspire and influence their teachers, and work with parents and the community to introduce innovative systemic improvements to their schools.
Minister for Education, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, will be the Guest-of- Honour at the 7th Principals' Appointment Ceremony. Ms Seah Jiak Choo, Director- General of Education, will present the Certificates of Appointment to all 70 principals.
