THREE other education families have also been transformed through the years.
Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) was born of a merger between Hwa Chong Junior College and The Chinese High School in 2005. It offers a six-year programme leading up to the A levels.
Just like in the Raffles family, the girls in Year Five and Six of HCI come from sister school Nanyang Girls' High School.
In 2005, another member was added to the Hwa Chong family: Hwa Chong International, which offers a six-year programme leading up to the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma.
The first Anglo-Chinese School (ACS) was founded in 1886 but has since split into six schools offering primary up to pre-university education.
They are: ACS (Junior), ACS (Primary), ACS (Independent), ACS (Barker Road), ACS (International), and Anglo-Chinese Junior College.
ACS (Independent) provides a four-year programme leading up to the O levels and a six-year programme leading up to the IB.
The most recent addition to the family was ACS (International), which opened in 2005 offering a six-year programme leading up to the IB.
As far as the Saints are concerned, they have been reunited in one big family.
In 2005, the St Andrew's schools - comprising St Andrew's Junior School, St Andrew's Secondary School and St Andrew's Junior College - were reunited in Potong Pasir at the St Andrew's Village. The 20-ha campus, which cost $90 million to build, has facilities such as a 1,000-seat cultural centre, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a rock-climbing wall.
