Victoria Junior College
Established in 1984, Victoria Junior College's mission is to ignite the imagination of all Victorians to create the future with conviction, courage and compassion. VJC has been at the forefront in implementing some of the new initiatives in the Singapore education system. It was the first and, until 2005, only junior college to offer the Theatre Studies and Drama programme (established in 1989). The VJC Choir was the first school choir from Singapore to win an international choir competition in Wales in 1991. With the opening of the East Zone Science and Technology Centre in 2002, VJC became the centre of research in Science and Technology for East Zone schools. The college also sent the first Singapore school team to participate in the International Science and Engineering Fair in 2004. Believing in innovation with passion and purpose, VJC also provides many opportunities for students to contribute to the community and the environment. The school had been receiving the prestigious Lotus Award in the School's Green Audit programme since 2004. Beyond the local competitive sports scene, Victorians have regularly represented Singapore in overseas competitions and emerged victorious. VJC was awarded the School Excellence Award in 2007 and had her award renewed in 2011, a firm recognition of her excellence in a wide spectrum of student development processes and outcomes as well as her vision to uphold the Victorian spirit.
