Bedok Green Primary School
Guide to know about Bedok Green Primary School
The old Bedok View Primary School and Bedok South Primary School merged to create Bedok Green Primary School (BGPS). On July 18, 2003, Professor S. Jayakumar, Minister for Law and Foreign Affairs and Member of Parliament for East Coast GRC, declared BGPS open. Bedok Green Primary School has carefully concentrated its efforts since its merger on offering a holistic education for all of its pupils. The school aims to create a thriving learning community that fosters all students to reach their full potential as lifelong learners and devoted citizens with strong moral values.
School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos:
The ‘Every Child Matters’ attitude at Bedok Green Primary School underscores our unshakable belief that each child is unique and valued. Every child will receive the necessary support to ensure his success in life, regardless of his starting point, with many helping hands, sound structures, and a range of programs for various student segments. We help children develop resilience, confidence, and a strong desire to succeed.
Empowered Learners, Persons of Strength, and Character are the school’s vision.
To encourage BGPians to understand how to learn and succeed to grow into self-assured individuals and caring citizens.
Students with solid basics and a promise will choose to practice with the Junior School Team and the Senior School Team. In 2011 and 2012, the school squad won the SPSSC/FAS Inter-Primary Schools 7-a-side U12 Football Fiesta. The senior boys finished fourth in the East Zone Football Competition in 2013.
During their training sessions, the girls learn and practice netball skills and techniques under the supervision of an expert trainer. They also participate in netball matches to improve their teamwork and attitude. They’ve also participated in several friendly tournaments and carnivals with various schools to gain more exposure.
Footwork drills, racket drills, and tactical play for Singles and Doubles are all taught to the players. They compete in the East-Zone Inter-school tournament every year in significant matches. In 2009, our girls competed in the Chinese Swimming Club Badminton Open, where they placed second in the under nine years old pairs division. One of our senior badminton players won the SMSS P6 Girls’ Badminton Open in 2012.
Students’ abilities and confidence will improve, allowing them to compete at the school and zone levels. Rugby gets long been misunderstood as a physically demanding sport. It is a fallacy since rugby is about brilliant passing, defense-splitting runs, and well-executed tackles, not a violent play. The rugby team finished second in the East Zone (Senior) tournament in 2012 and third in the East Zone (Junior) competition. The junior squad finished fourth in the East Zone Rugby Competition in 2013.
The school’s basketball team has been successful in East Zone tournaments, winning several awards for the institution. The Junior Girls took first place in the East Zone this year, followed by the Junior Boys in third place and the Senior Girls in second place. The Junior Boys/Girls are in 4th place at the National Level, while the Senior Girls are now among Singapore’s top 8 teams.
