66 new school principals received their letters of appointment from the director-general of education, Wong Siew Hoong, at the Appointment and Appreciation Ceremony for Principals recently conducted at the Shangri-La Hotel.
One of the new principals is Mr Kevin Ang who has assumed the post of principal at Bukit View Secondary School.
At first, Mr Ang found the culture, history and traditions of Bukit View Secondary unfamiliar. But the school’s vision – to be a “dynamic institution that adds value to all” – struck a chord with him.
Mr Ang plans to enhance Bukit View Secondary’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) that focuses on environmental science and sustainable living. For example, he said the school would be adding a makerspace, a collaborative work space that would allow students to use their knowledge of clean energy, such as developing models of solar-powered trucks or cars.
