Guide to know about Hougang Primary School

Hougang Primary is a public primary school in Singapore’s Hougang neighbourhood. It began in 2000 when it was temporarily relocated along Yio Chu Kang Road while the new school building gets built. It only accepts kids from Primary 1 to Primary 3, and this group of P2-3 students gets transferred from other schools. In 2001, it relocated to a new school facility on Hougang Street 93, where it enrolled its second class. Hougang Secondary School gets located across the street.

The Hougang Primary School has received numerous prizes, including the “Lotus Award,” and is noteworthy for such a young institution. The school has already graduated two pioneer batches of pupils who completed their primary school education and is now enrolling in its eighth Primary class.
