[Mothership] Innova JC to merge with Yishun JC in 2019: 8 JCs to merge into 4 JCs

MOE has merged the pairs of schools based on careful considerations such as enrolment size, geographical proximity, suitability of merger partners and infrastructure capacity. Accessibility to transport and quality of infrastructure are the factors behind the chosen sites for the merged schools, while the overall geographical coverage across Singapore is an additional consideration for JCs. MOE will work together with the affected schools to ensure a smooth transition to the merged school for staff and students, and in the process, forge a strong identity for the merged school. A heritage space in the merged school building will document the history and heritage of both schools. As with all previous mergers, there will be no retrenchment of MOE staff.
