Dulwich College (Singapore) is delighted to announce it received three accolades in this year’s HoneyKids Singapore Education Awards.

The College received a Gold Award for Best Arts Program, a Silver Award for Best All-Round Facilities, and the Winner of the Public Vote Award for Best Principal. 

Best Arts Program 

In winning Gold in the category of Best Arts Program, the College was recognised for its dedication to combining purpose and passion in the form of visual arts, music, drama, and dance. Dulwich students have access to top practitioners and resources to hone their craft and fulfil their creative imagination, including the Ignite! Exceptional Performance Development Programme, which supports students who are committed to a career in the performing arts, music, or sport, or who simply wish to maximise their potential and see the world of possibilities within their reach. The teachers were also commended on their ability to develop and nurture the students’ unique, individual artistic potential and push them to think outside the box.  

Best All-Around Facilities

Dulwich was awarded the Silver Award for the school with the Best All-Around Facilities for the second year running. The purpose-built, state-of-the-art green campus designed with a ‘students first’ approach offers outstanding facilities, and the educational environment is designed to nurture the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of the students. 

The latest addition to the campus, the seven-storey, net-zero energy SE21 Innovation Hub, is in the final stages of construction, and will officially open in August 2023. It will house a 400-seat auditorium, three black-box theatres, a professional teaching kitchen, film and media suites and workshop spaces devoted to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) and more. The space will provide multi-disciplinary areas for experiential learning, presenting, exhibiting, and creating from robotics and textiles to electronics and 3-D printing to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators. Underpinning all this is our commitment to producing well-rounded global citizens who are equipped to face the challenges that life throws at them. 

Principal of the Year

Head of College, Nick Magnus, was voted Principal of the Year in the Secondary School category. This award commends a school leader who is a master problem-solver, motivator, and well-rounded individual.

He comments, “I’m delighted to see our facilities recognised and our Arts Program receive this top accolade, it is truly deserved and honours all the hard work performed by these departments each day.  While nice to be personally recognised it’s never been just about me, I have been fortunate to work with the best and most committed teachers, privileged to have such strong and supportive families, and it has been such a pleasure to see each one of our students shine in their personalised pathways. I am so proud of the journey we have been on and where we are going as we continue the journey from good to great. “
