Greetings from Meridian Secondary School!
We are very excited to be a new secondary school with very rich heritage. Born from the merger of two good schools – Siglap Secondary and Coral Secondary – we gladly bear the responsibility of preserving the rich culture and outstanding practices of both schools, and to Unite to Reach New Heights (new School Motto). We aim to become true Meridians – a school community that inspire, lead and serve, with our school values of Humility, Compassion, Integrity and Resilience.
This merger has provided us with a great opportunity to harness the best talents and programmes from both schools, so as to offer a spectrum of distinctive, holistic and balanced learning experiences to prepare our young Meridians to thrive in the 21st Century.
Together as a school community – students, staff, parents and partners – we have charted our School Vision for Meridians to be Joyful Learners, Creative Thinkers, Compassionate Leaders. To fulfil this vision, we will strive to nurture in Meridians inquiring minds and caring hearts for their pursuit of excellence (our School Mission).
Every Meridian will benefit from our distinctive programmes – Learning for Life Programme in Community and Youth Leadership and Applied Learning Programme in Visual Communication. We believe that every student has leadership potential, hence our Growing Leaders Programme engages them in differentiated and meaningful opportunities to inspire, lead and serve. Our Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Visual Communication offers a spread of enriched Art experiences that equip students with the skills and knowledge to creatively use visual images to communicate powerful messages to their intended audience.
Other signature programmes include our Developing Innovative Learners through Design Thinking where students actively seek to understand problems faced by users and develop innovative solutions; our Performing Arts Programme where students learn to appreciate and perform different genres of music, dance and drama; and our Values In Action programme where students work in groups to initiate and carry out service learning projects to serve the community.
“It takes a village to raise a child” (a famous African proverb). We invite you to join us as the pioneers of Meridian Secondary School and to partner us in nurturing our young Meridians.
We are proud of being Team Meridian. Together we will appreciate and develop one another to our full potential, and contribute generously to building quality relationships in order to reach new heights as a school. As One Meridian Family, we will make our school a great place to work in and where we reap a deep sense of satisfaction in what we do.
Mrs Hilda Thong
