RI principal Lim Lai Cheng stepping down
Likely replacement is VJC principal; MOE to issue new postings list soon
Raffles Institution's first woman principal, Mrs Lim Lai Cheng, is stepping down.
Sources close to the school said Mr Chan Poh Meng, the principal of Victoria Junior College, will take over when she leaves at the end of the year.
The confirmation will come when the Ministry of Education (MOE) reveals its latest list of school heads as part of an annual rotation exercise.
Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said yesterday that the list, which could be out as early as today, will see MOE send some of its most experienced principals to head schools in the heartland.
CHANGING OF GUARD
I am pleased that we are sending some of our most experienced and well-regarded principals to head schools in our heartland. This is yet another tangible way for us to make every school a good school.
