Singapore school campus of NPS opens

Staff Reporter

 

SINGAPORE: The Bangalore-based National Public Schools (NPS) Group on Wednesday anchored itself in Singapore, its first overseas destination, offering courses of "academic excellence and holistic development."

The inauguration of the campus of the NPS International School Singapore was hailed by Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry S. Iswaran, and by India's High Commissioner S. Jaishankar.

Noting that Singapore's academic landscape was dotted with local and foreign institutions, Mr. Iswaran welcomed the arrival of NPS as "a further affirmation of our own exciting vision of Singapore as a global schoolhouse." He invited NPS, with its track record of academic excellence, to contribute to Singapore's evolution as a world-class educational hub. He noted that the school choosing to carve out a foreign campus here "underscores the close and growing bilateral ties between India and Singapore."

Dr. Jaishankar said Singapore was chosen as the window through which India looked out for new vistas of globalisation over 15 years ago. The venture highlighted the fact that "the mobility of Indians will be the defining characteristic of the new India."

NPS chairman K.P. Gopalakrishna affirmed that the campus would offer global curricula in harmony with Singapore's vision. The Singapore campus, which began functioning in January, is already open to Grade 9 for CBSE, IGCSE (U.K. Cambridge) and the Swiss IB academic streams. It has enrolled over 200 students in three months.
