Many who have noticed the rapid expansion of the Sino-English School attached to the Church of SS. Peter and Paul Singapore, have for some time forseen that it the progress of the school was maintained, an extension would soon become necessary. The need has now become imperative. The lack of accommodation is keenly felt at the moment as there is a long list of applications for admission into the school whilst the school has reached the limit of its accommodation with 500 pupils on the roll. Further expansion will not be possible without an extension of the present school premises. Moreover the boarding for out-station pupils must be enlarged.
Any project that the organisers of the school will put forward to meet this demand for extension, will undoubtedly receive the support that has made the foundation of the school such a success.
