Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School Secondary: Know About It

Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (PLMGS) is an all-girls school in Hougang, Singapore, with two sections: Primary School and Secondary School. In Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) and Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Secondary), students from Primary 1 to 6 and Secondary 1 to 4/5 attend classes in the Express, Normal Academic, and Normal Technical streams (Secondary).

Over 4000 children attend primary and secondary schools. Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School Secondary and (Pri) have been providing Higher Mother Tongue languages and specialised deep-learning programs in Maths, Science, and Aesthetics since 1995.


On October 31, 1916, the Methodist Episcopal Building and Location Board’s Secretary purchased a plot of property on Boundary Road with 93,000 sq ft (8,600 m2) to construct a school. Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School Secondary English School was an Anglo-Chinese school that got a branch of the Anglo-Chinese school. Mr Robert Hanam, who served the school until 1923, was the first headmaster of Paya Lebar English School, which opened in 1917 with three employees and a total student enrolment of 24 boys. In 1918, however, the institution began to admit female students.

Miss Smith took over as headmaster after Mr Hanam stepped down, and the school remained closed for two years while a new school, Methodist English Preparatory School, was established. The fresh new school relocated from its previous location on Boundary Road to Upper Serangoon Road, a two-story shophouse adjacent to Kampong Sireh. Not only that, but until 1935, the school had a new headmaster, Rev. Daniel Sundram. Shortly after that, in 1932, the school relocated to a new school and church complex on Boundary Road.

We want our pupils to become confident and articulate speakers, avid readers, and creative writers at PLMGS(S). We establish an environment and platforms – our students get challenged to strive for higher and higher standards. Opportunities exist through various channels, ranging from academics to co-curricular and enrichment programs – and different learning experiences (both overseas and local).

To improve our language competence, we use a variety of tactics and ways. Our program – takes into account the diverse abilities, interests, and needs of our pupils. Our kids learn to communicate boldly and eloquently in public through various activities such as class speeches, theatre, and debates.


Inquiry-Based Learning is used by – the Humanities department of PLMGS to improve students. Students learn how to evaluate the information they encounter and question its source and reliability in history. It helps students gain the skills and knowledge necessary to be critical thinkers and responsible citizens by exposing them to Singapore’s past and the forces that shaped international history. Students in Geography are taught about issues that affect the environment and people’s lives today and in the future.

Program of Physical Education

To encourage more children to participate in sports, all Sec 1 pupils participate in a Sports Education program in which – they learn a new sport that gets not covered in the PE curriculum (Tennis, Football). Students in Sec 2 learn to bike to prepare for the MOE-OBS Challenge Program in Sec 3. On Wednesday afternoon, kids can participate in the Active Youth Program – run-in – a collab with HPB.
