Yes is does not. The proposal has been handed in to the school by some students from the college section. Its approval is short of certain, only administrative matters remain.

Bedok View Secondary just set up a club in 2006.

Clarify: Bendemeer Sec does not have an Astronomy Club. They have a Science Club that runs the astronomy programme.

Most schools don't have an full fledged astro club, but many have an astro section under their science clubs. Some just represent their schools in astro competitions, while some become more active and eventually buy a scope and end up having their own club.

VS astronomy club is not recognised by their school btw. They are still known as Science Society. The reason is simply because they can avoid the hassle of applying for a new club to be formed in school and still get the funding required.

I've seen the HCI astro club forums...either way, they are about to have a club very soon.

There's also Raffles Girl's Secondary School.

Not really, Your school do not have to own scopes or have astro club to take part in the NYP Astronomy Quiz, some are just a section in their science club.
