On 4 March 2008, the Ministry of Education, Singapore announced the establishment of the School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST) and 4 January 2010 marked the beginning for our pioneer batch of staff and students.
The first two years were spent at 5 Clementi Ave 6, where our first and second cohort of students grew and matured as young men and women of SST. To support the delivery of the curriculum, the holding site was retrofitted with design studios and laboratories were also specially built for the science curriculum.
Back in those days, our students would often visit the library to conduct group project discussions, which was fully renovated and nicely furnished with tables and chairs, with walls that were gaily painted with our unique SST colours.
Although the compound was relatively small, we managed to create a conducive environment for our students by providing adequate and modern equipment in the classrooms and laboratories. The classrooms were fully air-conditioned, which helped in creating a comfortable setting for their daily lessons and the vast greenery that surrounded the school compound also helped in bringing them closer to nature. To enhance their learning experiences, our students were also brought to Ngee Ann Polytechnic to utilise some of their facilities.
On 3 January 2012, the first, second and third batches of SST students moved into their new campus at 1, Technology Drive, Singapore, near Dover MRT Station and Singapore Polytechnic. SST’s new campus is made up of four blocks – three forming the main building on one side of the campus (towards Dover MRT Station) and the Ngee Ann Kongsi Sports Complex which houses the CCA/Sports Facilities on the other side of the field. The new campus’ facilities include an “Info Hub” (Library), many specialized laboratories, a dedicated Apple Helpdesk and air-conditioned classrooms on the fourth and fifth floors.
Many precious memories of our staff and students at the holding site have been photographed and documented as part of our history – do take your time to browse through them and enjoy!
