School History

Guangyang Primary, known as Kong Yiong School, was founded on February 25, 1918, by Chinese education enthusiasts. It started near the Serangoon Post Office and moved numerous times before settling at 993B Yio Chu Kang Road in 1930, where it stayed until November 1992.

The school gets renamed Kong Yiong High School in 1959 when it added secondary classes.

The school became bilingual in 1978, teaching Chinese and English as first and second languages. The secondary and primary school branches get split up in 1984. In 1986, the elementary school became a government school. In January 2010, the school was relocated to a holding site at 2 Ang Mo Kio Street 23 to facilitate the two-year reconstruction of the school buildings under PRIME. 

The Guangyang Primary School returned to its previous address at 6 Bishan Street 12 in January 2012. An Indoor Sports Hall, covered play courts, a rooftop parade area, and a Multi-Purpose Hall are all part of this gleaming new structure. There was also a new PE outfit and a new school uniform.

The school teaches each student to become 

  • A self-assured leader who can effectively communicate recognizes his strengths and places for improvement and knows the difference between right and wrong.
  • A lifelong learner who is responsible for his learning and comments on it;
  • Innovative collaborator that looks out for creative solutions to work well in groups strives, and actively contributes;
  • Gracious Singaporean who knows and loves the city is concerned about people and the environment and enjoys the arts.

Safe Route to Guangyang Primary School

Pupils who walk to school from Bishan MRT or Bus Interchange cross the road at the exit and the carpark entry at Blk 112, where there is no designated pedestrian crossing. Pupils should walk to school using the following route:

  • At Bishan Street 13 and Bishan Street 11, cross the road.
  • Then, at the Singapore Scout Association, pass the traffic light.
  • Walk to the traffic signal junction outside the school near the bus stop, and cross there to get to school.

Parent Support Group

Guangyang Primary School believes that education is a joint effort between the school and the parents. As a result, they work hard to build close relationships with parents to achieve children’s academic and character development.

School Crest

A shield with the school’s name on the upper portion serves as the crest. An open book beneath it denotes a learning establishment. The essential values of the school get displayed in the book: Loyalty, Diligence, Courage, and Honesty. The two wavy lines at the bottom of the logo, illuminated by the sun’s source of brightness, represent the name Guangyang, which means bright ocean in Mandarin. The ocean represents limitless possibilities, and we hope that our students will be able to take on new challenges with confidence in the future.
