From the kampung shophouse schools of the early 1900s to the tertiary and modern institutions we see today, My School is Cool: An exhibition of educational institutions in Jurong is a story of how various communities and people have made Jurong their home. This story also shows the significant stages in Jurong’s history and how schools have responded as the area transformed from a swampland into a bustling industrial town.

Education is important in nurturing our unique interests and strengths, but it has become the cornerstone in cultivating the skills and talents necessary for Singapore to adapt to the changing needs of our nation. We see this in different points of our history: village schools nurtured useful skills and values in our early communities; tertiary institutions were erected after the war to groom citizens for the civil service as Singapore became independent; education was essential for cultivating a workforce ready for an industrialised economy, and decades later, for supporting a knowledge-based economy. These shifts reveal itself in the changing roles of Jurong’s educational institutions, allowing us to understand how our schools adapted to meet the challenges we face as a nation.

The official launch of the exhibition on 30 January 2015 will be complemented with various programmes and activities such as guided tours, mini-memorabilia craft making as well as an award presentation for the School Artwork Showcase exhibition 2014 by guest-of-honour, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam.
