St Margaret’s Primary School (SMPS) has announced its planned temporary relocation from its current premises at Wilkie Road to the MacPherson area from 2020 to 2021.
The holding school will be on a site that is currently occupied by MacPherson Primary School, located some 4.5km away from SMPS and is 600m away from Mattar MRT station.
Upgrading works to equip the school with new facilities such as redesigned classrooms, a dance studio, a jogging path, and a sports hall were cited as reasons for the relocation.
