The Ministry of Education (MOE) has announced the names of twenty primary and secondary schools that will merge in 2019.

There are seven pairs of primary schools and three pairs of secondary schools to be merged. In a statement, MOE said:

 “In naming (the) merged schools, a range of factors were considered, including the schools’ history and heritage, enrolments, as well as stakeholders’ interests and the sentiments of all schools involved.” 

It added that each new school will “encompass the identities, strengths and cherished distinctiveness of both merging schools”.

The name of the merged schools will be the name of the school where it will be located.
