Junior colleges with older campuses as well as JCs which merged recently due to declining enrolment will soon have their campuses rebuilt or refurbished.
This was recently announced Education Minister Ong Ye Kung. He said that the Ministry of Education will improve the infrastructure of JCs starting from 2022. Already, plans have already been implemented to progressively improve the infrastructure of the Institute of Technical Education and polytechnics.
The junior college rejuvenation exercise will take into consideration factors like the age of the buildings, the state of existing facilities and the availability of suitable holding sites while works are being carried out.
Campuses will also make use of digital technology and have facilities that encourage sports and co-curricular activities, such as indoor sports halls.
