School History & Background
Bendemeer Primary School started in 1977. The school was officially declared open by Mr Sidek Saniff, Member of Parliament for Kolam Ayer, on 10 March 1978. It serves the neighbourhoods of Bendemeer, Whampoa, Kallang Bahru, Boon Keng and Geylang Bahru. The old Bendemeer Primary School shared the same compound with Beng Wan Primary, Bendemeer Secondary and later Woodsville Secondary. The 3.3 hectares of land was once owned by one of Singapore’s Pioneers, millionaire ships’ chandler and Kapitan Chian (“leader of the Chinese people”), Hoo Ah Kay better known as Whampoa.
Under PRIME, the school merged with Beng Wan Primary on 1 January 2004. In March 2005, the school moved to the present new building. The school is flanked by Serangoon Road on one side and Bendemeer Road on the other side. The new Bendemeer Primary has an enrolment of about 1200 pupils. It is equipped with all the new facilities to face the challenges of the 21st century. It has a well furnished central library, two computer laboratories, two Science Rooms, two AVA rooms, one Art, Music and Mathematics Room, a pastoral and counseling room, a fitness room, a beautiful Science eco pond and hydroponics set, a big field and basketball courts and an ornamental pond.
