MOE appoints 50 principals in 2008


Ministry of Education Appoints 50 Principals in 2008
The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be appointing 50 Principals at the 11th Appointment Ceremony for Principals to be held on 30 Dec 2008. They comprise 27 newly-appointed Principals and 23 serving Principals/HQ officers 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 our schools. They lead and inspire teachers, and work with parents and the community to provide our students with the opportunities to discover their strengths and follow their passions. We need good Principals to steer our schools in preparing our young well for the future.
For the 27 newly appointed Principals, the appointment is an important milestone in their professional career as they assume major responsibilities as leaders in education.
For the 23 serving Principals/HQ officers who are assuming new appointments, it is an affirmation of MOE’s confidence and trust in their abilities to continue guiding our teachers and our young. The process of systematically appointing and rotating Principals not only enables schools to benefit from the infusion of fresh perspectives, but also gives Principals the opportunity to take on different challenges as part of their career development.
Ms Seah Jiak Choo, Director-General of Education, will present the Certificates of Appointment to the Principals at the 11th Appointment Ceremony for Principals on 30 Dec. Minister for Education, Dr Ng Eng Hen, will grace the ceremony as Guest-of-Honour.
