The purpose of education?
“What is the ideal product? The ideal product is the student, the university graduate, who is strong, robust, rugged, with tremendous qualities of stamina, endurance and at the same time, with great intellectual discipline and, most important of all, humility and love for his community; a readiness to serve whether God or king or country or, if you like, just his community.”
Lee Kuan Yew
1st Prime Minister of Singapore

Downtown Core is most definitely a place in Singapore to work, rest and play. As well as being the historical centre of Singapore, Downtown Core is home to the central business district and some of its most famous tourist attractions.



Located in the financial heart of the city-state, you'll find the Singapore Exchange, Supreme Court and Parliament buildings, as well as many global head offices. It's one of Singapore's most visited districts, with tourists and residents alike coming to walk across the Helix Bridge, stay at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel,  and visit the Singapore Art Museum. Other attractions include the Singapore Flyer and the waterfront promenade.
