Greenridge Secondary School
Everything You Need To Know About The Greendale Secondary School
Greendale Secondary School began in 1964 as Dunearn Secondary Technical School (DSTS) on Hillcrest Road, with 900 pupils enrolled. Deputy Prime Minister Toh Chin Chye formally inaugurated it on May 14, 1965. Greenridgeans have continued to seize learning opportunities, embark on novel experiences, discover their strengths and passions, and make a positive difference in school and beyond because our PRIDE values and the school motto, From Each His Best, are dear to their hearts. As a result of navigating the changes, we’ve discovered our extraordinary ability to adapt, welcome new learning, and maintain our resilience. Greenridge Secondary School is committed to ensuring a smooth transition as we prepare to join Fajar Secondary School in 2023 while continuing to provide learning opportunities for Greenridgeans.
