new premises

No. 2 Goodman Road was purchased on 27th January 1969 from proceeds of the sale of the 1st School property at 23, 25 & 27 Race Course Lane. It was primarily purchased as there was need for a School in the eastern part of Singapore. It served it’s purpose well over the years but there were very strict URA guidelines that did not allow full use of the premises. This especially became true with more pupils studying Gujarati.

On 3rd January 2007, after some 37 years the property was sold. The objective of the Directors and Members was to get an alternate premise where the following could be done:-

  1. Have an administrative office
  2. Be able to set-up proper Library with excess to all
  3. Be able to conduct 2/3 class with approval from the authorities
  4. Be able to display the School’s name

To meet the above needs an alternate property was purchased at 225 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427488.

This area is under the Secondary Conservation Zone and the unit could be used for commercial use. Application was made for change of use of the property to Commercial School and was obtained. Subsequently after the necessary upgrading Ministry of Education approval was also obtained. Certificate No. 2988 dated 7th July 2008 was issued as a replacement for certificate No. 132 of 1960.

The official opening of the New Premises were held on Sunday, 19th October 2008 and RAdm (NS) Lui Tuck Yew, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts had consented to officiate the opening of our new premises.

The School looks forward to many years in its new premises to cater to the need of the Gujarati speaking Community and provide top Gujarati education for our pupils.
