Upgrading and relocation plans for two secondary schools and four junior colleges will be deferred for one year.
Upgrading was planned for Woodlands Ring Secondary School between January 2021 and December 2022, during which the school was to move to a holding site, the former North View Secondary School premises. However, these plans will commence only a year later, and the school will move to its holding site from January 2022 to December 2023, said the Ministry of Education
In general, the design plans, production and delivery of construction materials, availability of workers and on-site construction works, have all been affected.
Plans for Yusof Ishak Secondary School’s relocation to Punggol in January 2021 will also be delayed by a year. The school will move in January 2022 instead, the MOE said.
To minimise disruption to students’ learning, YISS will only admit its new cohort of Secondary 1 students in 2022, when it has moved to its new premises.
Junior Colleges who have also had upgrading and relocation works affected include Anderson Serangoon Junior College, Temasek Junior College,Jurong Pioneer Junior College, and Yishun Innova Junior College.
