Is Juying Primary School Getting Ready For Merging?

Ju Eng Public School in Jalan Kayu was the beginning of Juying Primary School. Mr Ang Oon Hui established the school as a Chinese-aided institution in 1940. Ju Eng is pronounced “Juying,” means “a gathering of skills” in Hanyu Pinyin. The school was closed during the Japanese occupation but reopened in 1945. Ju Eng Public School remained open until 1987 when forced to close owing to declining enrolment. The spirit of community service continued, and Mr Ang Oon Hui converted the  Juying Primary School building into a Home that provides welfare services for the aged and needy of all races and religions.

At around 8.30 a.m., roughly ten Pioneer Primary children took a symbolic 30-minute walk from their school to the Juying Primary site. Pioneer Primary children encountered five Juying Primary students in the middle of the race, accompanied by their instructors.

They walked the final mile to Juying Primary School, located at 31 Jurong West St 91 and drums. It is where the merged school will be until 2025, when the first primary school in the new Tengah district. While it will be known as Pioneer Primary School, its Chinese name will remain Juying.

The First Of Nine School Combination

Between 2022 and 2024, the Ministry of Education (MOE) declared four pairs of elementary schools and five secondary schools. Due to lowering birth rates and shifting demography in housing estates, several schools have reported declining enrolment also stated that demand for school places in newer estates with younger families is increasing. Both Juying Primary and Pioneer Primary are in established residential zones, and enrolment at both schools has been “dropping continuously” in recent years to the Ministry of Education.

Mdm Loke recalled the hard work put in by employees and teachers of both schools in preparation for the merger in the short nine months since announced. In their approaches to incorporating environmental sustainability into the curriculum and students’ learning, the two schools discovered common ground new school feature an applied learning programme centred on it.
