Partners in Education
Partnership with Stakeholders@Kranji Secondary
"Quality Partnerships, Quality Education" encapsulates the close collaboration between Kranji secondary and our strategic partners.
Kranji's Partnership Objectives:
We believe that education is the shared responsibility of the student, parents, the school and community.
We seek to cultivate strategic partnerships with our stakeholders, community and other educational institutions to enhance the scope, quality and relevance of our programmes.
Local Partners: Parents Support Group (PSG), School Advisory Committee (SAC), Alumni
The PSG was set up in 2005 to enhance the involvement of parents in the education of their children. It has become a platform for the parents to communicate with the school management so as to keep abreast with the current school policies and to support school programmes.
The SAC serves an advisory role to the school management on school programmes and new initiatives. The SAC also provides funding for needy students (meal allowance, exam fees), helps enhance the resources of the school and assists the school in expanding its network with the community.
The Alumni contributes to the holistic development of our students through their active involvement in both Instructional Programme and Non-Instructional Programme such as peer tutoring in Mathematics and Science, fund-raising, organisation of school activities (Secondary One Orientation, National Day Celebrations, Sports & Fitness Fiesta, Cultural Fiesta Nite) and CCAs.
Education In Partners: Singapore Polytechnic (SP), Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP)
The school actively sustains partnerships with SP and NYP to equip our students with the relevant skills to meet the demands and challenges of the 21st century. One of the new partnerships is the "Adoption of Marina Barrage". It is a 2-year partnership programme with Singapore Poly and PUB, where students have been trained to carry out water-testing at the Marina Barrage and serve as gallery guides. The school has also offered various Advanced Elective Modules at SP and NYP to widen their learning experiences. The school has also collaborated with NYP on student action research work to provide our students with opportunities to embrace new technologies in ICT.

External Organisations: Nparks, South West CDC, Yew Tee CCC
The school establishes and sustains strong partnerships with external organisations and the community to provide opportunities for our students to acquire values such as social responsibility and compassion and to give back to the community. The school collaborates with NParks and South West CDC on many gardening and environmental programmes. For example, the school partners with NParks and South West CDC in organising "Green Wave", a global event which promotes greener environment around the world and commemorates International Biodiversity Day. We also work collaboratively with NParks on projects for the Singapore Garden Festival and Community in Bloom Booth@ Singapore Garden Festival.
The school collaborates with Yew Tee CCC to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, an annual event well-received by the residents. The school has successfully played its part in fostering community spirit among Yew Tee residents. This collaboration has provided Kranjians with ample opportunities to gain experience in organising large-scale community events.
Overseas Partnership with China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia
The school has a clear framework for internationalisation to enable our students to appreciate global issues and be culturally nimble. The school hosts visiting students and overseas delegates from China, Korea, New Zealand and Vietnam. On an annual basis, the school mounts several overseas trips for students to Cambodia, Malaysia, China, Vietnam and Indonesia. Since last year, the school has been involved in the MOE scholarship programme to recruit scholars from China.
In July 2011, we hosted the Su Zhou Industrial Park Schools Delegation as well as the Shangdong Zi Bo 2-School Delegation which comprised both staff and students. We also hosted the visiting delegation from Bullo Secondary School from Korea in August 2011. To give our students exposure in the international arena, a group of about 100 students and 10 teachers went on school immersion programmes to Sichuan China in November 2011. This Si Chuan 5D4N Internationalisation Programme Outbound provided an international platform aimed at developing a cosmopolitan mindset in Kranjians through experiencing and appreciating the rich diversity of cultures and opportunities in the world. The programme included learning journeys at Cheng Du Polytechnic, at Cheng Du 7th Experimental Middle School and at Shi Fang Experimental Middle School.
