Angsana Primary School
What to Know About Angsana Primary School
The beautiful Angsana tree inspired this school’s name. It is a typical roadside tree planted in Singapore in the late 1960s and 1970s as part of the Garden City Campaigns. Angsana trees may now be found across the island, lining and adorning major thoroughfares like Orchard Road.
The Angsana tree, which can reach a height of 40 meters and has a dense, dome-shaped crown with drooping lower branches, was first imported to Singapore in the early 19th century. In 2015, the former Qiaonan Primary School and Griffiths Primary School were united to form Angsana Primary School. Singapore’s 50th year of independence was also commemorated in 2015, making it a memorable year for the country and school.
Like the Angsana tree, Angsana Primary School aspires to match the usefulness and beauty of the tree after which named and to offer the shade beneath which future generations of excellent citizens will be nourished and groomed.
