Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the revamped Cedar Girls’ Secondary School's website! For over 60 years, we are known for being an inclusive and supportive community that priorities the holistic development of every student that goes through an education with us.

Our school motto, Honesty, Perseverance and Courtesy, reflects what the school believes are crucial traits to imbue in our students to be ready for the challenges of the future. We affirm the achievements of our students and encourage our students to have perseverance when the going gets tough.

In their formative years here with us, at Cedar, we provide space and guidance for our students to develop self-awareness and honesty about their strengths and weaknesses as these values guide their thoughts and actions when faced with moral dilemmas, anchoring them as leaders of character.

It is often the seemingly small things that are the most difficult to be practiced well. Courtesy is emphasised in our school and our students are inspired to be courteous in their interactions with peers and members of the school. 

As a dual-track school, we offer the choice between the four year O-Level Programme and the Victoria-Cedar Alliance Integrated Programme (VCA IP) that spans over 6 years, jointly offered with Victoria School and Victoria Junior College. And in both programmes, a forward thinking curriculum and co-curricular activities is put in place to develop in our students strong critical and analytical skills in their passion for learning.

At Cedar Girls’, we believe that our students’ have the capacity to meaningfully contribute to their nation and society. Our social innovation programme is intended to broaden the perspectives of our students and inspire them to create novel solutions that will impact the community. Through a robust social innovation curriculum and the integration of learning platforms, our students are given opportunities to work alongside industry experts to bring their proposed user-centric ideas to reality.

Last but not least, we also acknowledge our Parent Support Group (PSG) in partnering the school in our continued efforts to provide the best all-round education for our girls.

As a community, we are committed to inspiring and nurturing our girls and I invite you to join our family of Cedarians, past and present who have and continue to contribute to the community within and beyond the school.
