Nan Chiau High School, founded by businessman Tan Kah Kee in 1947 initially as a girls’ school, is the only secondary school affiliated to Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan. In 1978, Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools were introduced, but the then Nan Chiau Girl’s High School was not selected. Despite changing the medium of instruction from Chinese to English and accepting male students, the school continued to face declining enrolment rates. In a bid to start afresh, Hokkien Huay Kuan decided to relocate the school from Kim Yam Road to Sengkang New Town in 2000. After several years of hard work, the results of her students as well as the portfolio of the school greatly improved. As such, in 2012, Nan Chiau High School became the 11th SAP school, regaining its former glory. 南侨中学前身为南侨女子中学校，由商界领袖陈嘉庚于1947年创办，是福建会馆属校中唯一的中学。 1978年教育改革，未获选为特选中学的南侨女中，随之将教学媒介语改为英语、开始招收男生，并同时更改校名为南侨中学，仍难以挽救学生人数不断下滑的困境。 2001年，福建会馆放弃金炎路校地，将南侨中学迁往盛港。经过数年耕耘，学生成绩大幅提升，2012年，南侨成为第11所特选中学，重得昔日荣光。
