Learn More About The CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School Secondary
CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School Secondary was the new name for the school, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong reopened the school in 2013 to commemorate the school’s 80th anniversary. The school began a Joint Integrated Program with Catholic High School, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, and Eunoia Junior College and celebrated its 85th anniversary in 2018. Singapore’s Chinese population was quickly growing in the 1930s. The Infant Jesus nuns decided to build a Chinese-medium primary school to provide education for Chinese girls. Victoria Girls’ School opened on January 16, 1933, in the former Hotel van Wijk building. There were forty students and a Chinese teacher in the class. Its first Principal was Sister Solong. In 1995, the Ministry of Education granted the school status in honour of its high-value academic achievements. The school underwent PRIME from the end of 2009 to 2012 to become future-ready.
