Hougang Primary School Virtual Tour 

Hougang Primary School (HGP) celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2020. Founded in 2000 with an enrolment of around 600 students and a modest staff size of 20, the school has grown from strength to strength to its present enrolment of 1305 and staff strength of 106 under the leadership of its former principals Mr Goh Ek Piang (2000 to 2007), Mrs Sabrina James (2007 to 2014) and Mdm Rashidah Bte Abdul Rasip (2014 to 2020). Mr Jason Goh currently serves as its fourth principal, taking over the school leadership on 1 Jan 2021.


Over the years, HGP has remained a school of choice for parents, especially in the neighbouring estates of Hougang, Serangoon, Seng Kang and Ang Mo Kio. During the annual Primary 1 Registration Exercises, vacancies are typically filled up by Phase 2C, with balloting required in the latter phase. To a large extent, HGP’s relative popularity among prospective parents stems from its following niche areas that have also given the school a distinctive identity and brand:


a.     Outdoor Adventure Education (OAE)

As the school’s Learning for Life Programme (LLP), OAE provides HGP-ians with authentic, hands-on and physical learning experiences aimed at instilling values and developing character. Through a structured and progressive OAE curriculum that entails orienteering, camp craft, bouldering, abseiling and caving, HGP-ians are given the opportunity to embrace challenges and overcome obstacles, both confidently and competently. Furthermore, as many of the learning experiences involve students working collaboratively with their peers, OAE also serves as an important lever to facilitate social mixing, promoting a culture of inclusivity within the school community.


b.     Science Education

The school’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Science Education aims to cultivate a spirit of inquiry in HGP-ians, by allowing them to explore and experience the impact of Science on the real world. Anchored on environmental education, the ALP drives the school’s efforts and achievements in the areas of bio-diversity and eco-sustainability. With its campus immersed in rich flora and fauna, HGP was designated by NParks as a Centre for Biodiversity for Schools in the North East. In Feb 2020, we also received the BCA Green Mark Goldplus certificate, recognising the school as a green building and affirming its efforts in reducing energy consumption through the pervasive use of energy-efficient technology. In Oct 2021, the school achieved the Diamond Award, Platinum Banding and “Outstanding Environmentally Friendly, Biodiversity Community Garden” Ribbon under the Community in Bloom Programme organized by NParks Singapore.
