The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) will be launching a public tender for the former Seh Chuan High School (树群中小学校) at 9-3 Jalan Seh Chuan in Upper Bukit Timah for use as a commercial/foreign system school on 15 October 2008. Operators in the education sector can look forward to starting a campus on this site which has an approximate land area of 3,464 sqm and Gross Floor Area (GFA) of about 4,221 sqm. The tenancy is for an initial period of three years, with an option to renew for two more terms of three years each (i.e, 3+3+3) subject to agreement.

occupying State properties. It is easily accessible by public transport
and is near amenities like the Beauty World Shopping Centre, the Bukit Timah

3 There has been strong interest and demand by operators from both commercial and foreign systems schools for State properties as they are easily adaptable.
