Beacon Primary School started her journey as the only New Primary Future School (NPFS), one of the five pioneer future schools under the FutureSchools@Singapore (FS@SG) programme. The school curriculum provides a technologically-enhanced learning environment where both current and emerging technologies are explored. With our signature Beacon One-to-One (B121) Computer Ownership Programme, every student is equipped with a Personal Learning Device (PLD) and wireless internet access, which empower him with collaborative, independent and self-directed learning, and promote the acquisition of 21st century competencies.

To mark Beacon’s 10th Anniversary as a Future School, the Excellence in ICT Scholarship has been set up by the Founding Principal, Miss Lim Boon Cheng, to encourage and recognise the pursuit of innovation, and excellence in using ICT for learning and beyond. Beacon has been a pathfinder in forging a new paradigm in learning, leveraging the seamless, pervasive and effective use of ICT in teaching and learning. The Founding Principal’s vision of Beacons being trailblazers in the use of ICT has led to the funding of this scholarship.
