Principal's Message

Founded in 1977, Temasek Junior College (TJC) is the second oldest government Junior College in Singapore. It holds a special place in the collective consciousness and hope of the nation; the College was honoured with one of the island's earliest known names, Temasek , which refers to sea town. It is also one of two top Junior Colleges entrusted with the privilege of offering their own 6-year Integrated Programme leading to the GCE A-Levels. 

The College Motto “For College, For Nation” defines our mission as a college that is a crucible for leaders who would stand out in public, professional and private life. Our commitment to serve our nation is engendered in our history, our culture and our mission. Our College outcomes go far beyond intellectual resilience; our graduates leave us armed and ready for significant and fulfilling lives. Our illustrious and respected alumni bear testimony to this. 

TJC is known for its intellectual rigor and the holistic excellence of its programmes. TJCians have many exciting and diverse learning opportunities set in a rich, vibrant and caring learning environment. We harness and leverage on our proven track record, cultural capital and vast network of supporters to deliver a dynamic educational experience. Our culture of collaboration, with supportive peers and dedicated and inspiring faculty, supports successful and enriching years in TJC. 

We welcome you to visit us at our lovely sprawling campus in the East Coast of Singapore and experience first-hand what we do.
