59 school principals to be appointed by December: MOE


The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be appointing 59 principals at a ceremony later in December this year.

In a statement on Friday afternoon, the MOE said that among them, 29 are newly-appointed principals.

Its spokesman said principals are key to shaping and strengthening the traditions and ethos in schools.

"They lead and inspire teachers, and work with parents and the community to provide our students with the opportunities to discover their strengths and follow their passions," he said.
