Well during my time, I could never imagine that the school can be that grand and nice! Of course after 30 over years, things have changed – Victoria School has shifted it’s location from Jalan Besar to Geylang Bahru and now settled down at Siglap. It’s really a much more nicer building and even with a hostel (though majority who stayed there are not VS students haha). Now it’s a strictly boys school as there is no more Pre-U in the school since there is another Victoria Junior College (VJC) located just further down the road.
The main gate of the current VS;
I’m impressed by the design of the school – the school motto “Nil Sine Labore” is ‘shadowed’ onto the ground when the sun shine;
This is how it looks like – the parade square located on the upper floor;
Nowadays, managing a school is like running a business. The school need to promote their “products”. See how the school “market” it’s brand;
Besides the normal school badge and tie, you can even find the school name on their Khaki shorts, school socks and shoes. Now the school allowed running shoes to be worned as school shoe as long as it’s 70% white compared to the old boring canvas white school shoe.
How I wish to be a student of this era…
