School Identity

School Philosophy


Godly women of Excellence with a heart of Love


To educate every girl 1 in a Christian environment 2 in order that she may 
MASTER, GROW and SERVE 3 in every phase of her life 4

      1. We are a school for girls. Every child we have stewardship over is uniquely created by God and is precious  to us. We recognise the need to consider the female psyche in our programmes.
      2. Our ethos and culture is Christian. The values we live by and which we imbue in our girls are that which are  made explicit in the Bible.
      3. The school motto resonates throughout the many generations of MGS girls and embodies the attitude and  motivation which distinguish the alumnae.
      4. Each phase in her life brings a new dimension of understanding, learning and growth; and hence, the  approach to educating her considers all phases of her development. It is our hope that the values, attitudes  and skills instilled in her in MGS will stand her in good stead in the future phases of her life.


To Master 1 , To Grow 2 , To Serve 3

      1. Mastery is defined by excellence and the attitude of excellence in all that the MGS girl does.
      2. An MGS girl shall grow holistically, ―in stature and wisdom, and in favour with God and man‖. She will  develop the skills for continuous and independent learning which will carry her through her phases of  development and place her confidently in the future world and society she chooses to serve in.
      3. An MGS girl is not self-serving; she chooses to serve out of gratitude and love. With an outlook beyond  herself, she will make a positive impact on her community, her country, the environment and the world.


Possessing character traits bearing the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,  faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22,23)
Leading God-fearing and purposeful lives with the moral courage to stand up for what is right and persevere  through difficulties and uncertain circumstances.

Doing one‘s best in everything by setting and giving high standards of work and conduct (Philippians 4:8),  pushing the boundaries and endeavouring always to do better in order to reach one‘s fullest potential.
Being a responsible steward of time, talent and resources and exemplary in the performance of tasks and  duties.

Be actively reaching out and touching lives, compassionate and respectful to all one comes into contact with,  and embodying the ideals of servant leadership.

School Crest

T he change in the school crest was initiated by the Principal Miss Lau Meau Eng (1957-1972) as the old badge in enamel could only be made in England.

The crest was introduced in 1965, but there is no record of who designed it.

School Song

With loving hearts and joyous song we sing to M.G.S.
And tell the fame of that fair name for we can do no less.
We hope that we may honour bring, and heaven ever bless
Our school, the fairest in the land, our own dear M.G.S.

Down through the years our memories will keep a loving place
For friendships made and pleasures shared, and lessons learned apace.
For those who worked and gave their best that we might learn to face
The trials of life with faith and hope and nobly run the race.

And now we're proud to raise the shout and sing of M.G.S.
Lift high her banner, one and all, her name we now profess.
In work and play for honours won, today our hearts confess
The debt we owe, the love we hold for our dear M.G.S.
