Guidelines to know about the Bukit Timah Primary School

Bukit Batok Primary School is a merger of two schools, Bukit Batok East and Bukit Batok West Primary Schools, which locates at the intersection of Jalan Jurong Kechil and Jurong Road. Since 1959, these two schools have run independently. However, in 1984, they merged to establish Bukit Batok Primary School, which still exists today. The two three-story blocks that make up the school buildings get constructed in 1959. In the year 1988, a new hall/canteen gets built. The school changed its name to “Bukit Timah Primary School” in December 2001 when it moved to a new location on Lorong Kismis.

Philosophy, culture, and ethos

We believe that every kid has an inherent value at Bukit Timah Primary School (BTPS). When given the correct atmosphere and assistance, he may learn and succeed. A youngster, like a sapling, requires scaffolding to stay rooted while growing. A secure and conducive atmosphere is one in which order and discipline get established so that the kid may learn effectively. He gets provided an opportunity to explore, discover, and ask questions at his speed.
