Waz in the name “Yusof Ishak”?

Yusof Ishak Secondary School to relocate to Punggol in 2021 to boost student numbers

Headline in constructive nation building media

The school is to be moved from NW S’pore (Bukit Batok) to NE S’pore (Punggol) to avoid being closed due to the declining numbers of students in the Bukit Batok area.

The relocation will allow the MOE to “preserve the established history and rich culture of the school” and its “contribution to the teaching fraternity” through the Centre for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE), which it currently hosts.

What “established history and rich culture of the school” that needs preserving? Many a school that were closed despite having an established history and rich culture”: think Pasir Panjang English School (a pre WWII, the first where boys and girls were educated together. My parents were among the first batch, and I later attended Pri 1 there), Siglap Pri (did the rest of pri school education here), Siglap Sec and the first sec school in Toa Payoh.

I for one can think of more cynical reasons for the move.

Can you think what I’m think? Think Indian Muslim becoming Malay president: Anti-PAP Malay that ungrateful meh?.
