Guide About Nanyang Junior College
Nanyang Junior College (NYJC) is a Singapore junior college located near the Lorong Chuan MRT station. It offers two-year pre-university programs leading to the GCE Advanced Level examinations. Nanyang Junior College’s admission criteria have skyrocketed, propelling the school to the top of Singapore’s junior colleges by entry points. Six Public Service Commission (PSC) Scholarship winners have attended the NANYANG JUNIOR COLLEGE over the last decade.
Nanyang Junior College, formerly Lorong Chuan Junior College, was one of Singapore’s earliest government-sponsored junior colleges, opening in 1977.
The NANYANG JUNIOR COLLEGE provides courses in the arts and sciences. It is one of the few colleges in Singapore that does not assign an ‘S’ to Science classes and an ‘A’ to Arts programs since the introduction of the new system in 2006.
It’s also one of the few colleges that don’t have morning assemblies at 7.30 or 7.40 a.m. Assembly for the JC1s takes place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8.30 a.m., and for the JC2s on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. There will be no assembly on the following days so children can arrive at school at 8.50 a.m.
Art Elective Programme (AEP)
The Art Elective Program at Nanyang JC emphasizes the practical and theoretical components of art creating, encouraging students to express themselves through various art techniques and methods. Students will acquire inquiry, experimentation, exploration, concept formation, personal reflection, and evaluation abilities via creating and discussing artworks.
In JC1, AEP students will participate in modules that will introduce them to many art forms, such as drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, design, video, etc. In JC2, AEP students will begin their ‘A’ Level study, which will last nine months, and they will choose their specialization field. Tutors will provide one-on-one assistance to students throughout this time
Chinese Language Elective Programme
It develops the language talent of students and a natural affinity for the Chinese language to achieve a high level of proficiency and a better understanding of Chinese literature. The curriculum also strives to prepare academically capable students to become successful bilinguals, allowing them to fulfill the country’s needs.
ECG programs at NYJC get centered on professional identity, career exploration, and career planning as per the MOE ECG framework. When developing ECG programs, keep the following in mind:
- Meeting student requirements
- Taking a holistic approach to education
- Creating a network and forming bonds
Peach slacks and a plain peach blouse get worn by the boys. It is similar to girls’ peach-colored skirts and shorts. In 2008, the previous uniform, a darker brown, was phased out completely.
On the left collar of the shirt is worn the college Insignia, which is a collar pin with the school emblem. The school tie, formerly only worn on Wednesdays, is now only worn at formal school events and assemblies. Brown blazers, too, are reserved for special occasions. A blue and white shoulder striped T-shirt and black shorts with the school letters, NYJC, are required for PE. The red and blue T-shirts get replaced by brown ones in 1998.
