Saint Andrew's Junior College (SAJC)is a junior college in Singapore and was established in 1978. It is located in Potong Pasir, offering two-year pre-university courses leading to the GCE Advanced Level examinations. It is an Anglican mission school, part of St. Andrew's School. It is affiliated to schools under the Anglican Diocese of Singapore, as well as Presbyterian High School.

History

The school has its origins in St. Andrew's School, which was founded in 1862 by the Anglican Diocese of Singapore. SAJC had its origins as pre-university classes begun in 1969 as part of St. Andrew's Secondary School. In 1978, the college was formally established with its own campus at Telok Blangah, where it remained for 28 years.

The college campus then had a bitumen track and bleachers at the opposite side to the main building. The campus also housed the old Chapel of the Resurrection, which has since been relocated to St. Andrew's Village.

In 2006, the Junior College moved back to Potong Pasir to form part of the St. Andrew's Village, which houses the Junior School and Secondary School as well. The Campus is now located at the former Secondary School site at 5 Sorby Adams Drive, Singapore 357691 (previously as 55 Potong Pasir Avenue 1). A sheltered pedestrian bridge, named Jacob Ballas Bridge, connects the college to the secondary and junior schools across the Kallang River.




The school song
Lives are in the making here,
Hearts are in the waking here,
Mighty undertaking here,
Up and On! Up and On!
We are arming for the fight,
Pressing on with all our might,
Pluming wings for higher flight,
Up and On!
Up Saints! Truest fame
Lies in high endeavour;
Play the game!
Keep the flame
Burning brightly ever!
Fair before us lies the way,
Time for work and time for play;
Fill the measure while we may,
Up and On! Up and On!
Life and time will not delay,
Time is running fast away,
Life is now today; today;
Up and On!
Up Saints! Truest fame
Lies in high endeavour;
Play the game!
Keep the flame
Burning brightly ever!
Foes in plenty we shall meet,
Heart courageous scorn defeat;
So we press with eager feet,
Up and On! Up and On!
Ever onward to the fight,
Ever upward to the Light,
Ever true to GOD and RIGHT,
Up and On!
Up Saints! Truest fame
Lies in high endeavour;
Play the game!
Keep the flame
Burning brightly ever
