Our New Buildings
Designed to the concept of “Returning the Green”, NYGH’s Building Extension preserves the iconic façade of the school while augmenting the existing campus with modern facilities to meet the needs of its evolving curriculum. It is joined seamlessly to the original school building by its turfed roofs and link-bridges. In addition to a 150-metre running track and long jump pit, the new Building Extension comprises a Performing Arts Centre (PAC) Wing, an Indoor Sports Hall (ISH) Wing, connected by a Central Atrium at the basement.
Before the building of the new extension, the track and field facilities fronting Dunearn Road were relocated to the boarding school in 2014, albeit downsized, to allow the Track and Field CCA and PE activities to function seamlessly, especially during the 2-year construction period.

Special Programme Rooms (1-to-8)
The PAC Wing consists of 13 Special Programme Rooms, 8 of which are equipped with mobile projectors, whiteboards and furniture, and can be quickly reconfigured to accommodate different class sizes through the use of operable-walls. In addition to their scalable capacities, these rooms can be used flexibly as they are furnished with ‘bamboo-flooring’, which allows for kinaesthetic activities. The PAC Wing also has an Ensemble Studio, as well as a Studio Theatre to cater to the school’s wide array of Aesthetics programmes.
Indoor Sports Hall
The ISH Wing augments the school’s outdoor resource venues by facilitating Physical Education (PE) lessons and Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) in the event of inclement weather as well as unhealthy haze conditions. It consists of an 862 square metre Indoor Sports Hall, as well as a 250 square metre Multi-Purpose Hall, and can be accessed from the main school via an underground tunnel in the event of rainy weather.
The Central Atrium will serve as an added venue for PE & CCA activities and may be used for level assemblies and exhibitions.
The timely completion of the Building Extension heralds in the 100th Anniversary of the school. In the words of Mr. Lim Koon Park, Principal Architect of the new Building Extension, “although distinctively an addition to the existing, upon completion the proposal appears as a humble extension that pays respect to the existing. From Dunearn and Bukit Timah Roads, the new addition to Nanyang Girls’ High School reads as a low-lying landscape that frames and celebrates the existing complex and asserts its iconic significance. It becomes simply an altered reading of the familiar.”
