Staff and Student Engagement Session with Second Minister for Education and Finance, Ms Indranee Rajah


On 3 July 2019, 2nd Minister for Finance and Education, Ms Indranee Rajah visited our school to understand more about the Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Jurong West Secondary School, and how our students, through this programme, learnt to use ICT tools, such as stop motion and micro-bits, to address issues they were passionate about (eg. Combating terrorism, bullying to senior care).

Ms Indranee had an engaging time with our students where they showcased their ALP projects and had an interactive engagement session with our students  where our students asked Ms Indranee about equality in Singapore, MOE’s move to reduce academic stress, her experience working with our Founding PM, Mr Lee Kuan Yew as well as what it is really like being a Minister and what keeps her going.

Our staff also had an equally meaningful engagement session with Ms Indranee as they heard her views on matters such as Full Subject Based Banding and what it means for teachers, legislation governing youths as well as UPLIFT and how parents and schools could work in greater synergy with community groups.
