NTU signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the School of Science and Technology (SST) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) yesterday, where NTU and NP would help develop enrichment programmes for the school. NTU’s partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation will provide enterprise opportunities to students, and NP will help design five Applied Subjects to be taken at O-levels. SST will be Singapore’s fourth specialised independent school and aims to nurture students with inventive minds and entrepreneurial skills. Mr Chua Chor Huat, SST’s principal, said that the school is looking at students who have the academic ability to cope with a rigorous curriculum, as well as those who have the inclination and aptitude for applied learning. Dr Su emphasized that students in the new school would be taught skills that would take them beyond just building businesses.
