New school principals in 2007


Ministry of Education Appoints 49 Principals in 2007

The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be appointing 49 Principals at the 9th Appointment Ceremony for Principals to be held on 28 Dec 06.
They comprise 16 newly-appointed Principals and 33 serving Principals who will take up appointments in other schools (please refer to Annex A for the details).
Principals are key to shaping and strengthening the traditions and ethos of schools. They lead and inspire teachers, and work with parents and the community to prepare our young for the future.
As we move towards a quality-focused education system, Principals have a greater role to play in providing our students with the opportunities to discover their strengths and follow their passions.
With schools driving the initiatives to achieve this, we need Principals to steer our schools towards peaks of excellence.
For the 16 newly appointed Principals, the appointment is a major milestone in their professional career as they assume major responsibilities as leaders in education.
For the 33 serving Principals who are assuming new appointments, it is an affirmation of MOE¨s confidence and trust in their ability to continue guiding our teachers and our young, and to infuse new ideas in our search for excellence.
The process of systematically appointing and rotating Principals not only enables schools to benefit from the infusion of fresh perspectives, but also gives Education Officers the opportunity to take on different challenges as part of their career development.
The 9th Appointment Ceremony for Principals is organised by MOE to recognise the important role our Principals play in education.
Minister for Education, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, will be the Guest-of-Honour at the Ceremony. Ms Seah Jiak Choo, Director-General of Education, will present the Certificates of Appointment to all 49 Principals.
