Guide To Know About The Victoria Junior College

Mr. Wong Hung Khim, Mr. Foo Kok Swee, and Mr. Ong Teong Pin were the first Victorians to propose Victoria Junior College in the 1970s. Mr. Wong Hung Khim, the first Chairman and Victoria Executive Committee (VEC), spearheaded the proposal for a new junior college supported by Dr. Ong Chit Chung, Chairman of the VAC and VEC from 1978 to 1981, the Old Victorian President Association. With the establishment of VICTORIA JUNIOR COLLEGE along with Marine Vista, this vision became a reality, and a new chapter in college history began. Mrs. Lee Phui Mun, the victoria junior college’s first principal, welcomed the students in 1984.
