West Spring Secondary School had its first intake of students in January 2001 at Zhenghua Secondary School, the holding site. A piece of land at the end of Petir Road was reserved for the building of West Spring Secondary School. The school was scheduled for completion in December 2002.
A Change of Plans
However, there was a change of plans. The land reserved for West Spring was withdrawn and a piece of land along Senja Road was allocated to build West Spring Secondary School. Due to this change, West Spring Secondary was ready only at the end of 2004. Thus, the pioneer Secondary One cohort could not get to enjoy their new school’s facilities.
Move to Teck Whye
As a result of the change, West Spring Secondary School moved to occupy the old Teck Whye Secondary School at the end of December 2001. West Spring Secondary School quickly established itself as a school which implements highly innovative academic and co-curricular programmes to enrich the learning experiences of its students.
Move to Senja
Today, West Spring continues to enjoy the reputation of a dynamic and happy school. Springing forth into the new age, life in the school has never been a dull moment for anyone who has experienced the West Spring life and culture.
Students enjoy a colourful and vibrant learning environment under the tutelage of dedicated teachers who are experts in their subject areas.
West Spring adopts the concept of a happy school where students gather knowledge in a highly conducive environment – thinking and growing, enriched by the experiences the school has to offer. Students are groomed to be confident, caring and responsible citizens who stand courageous to face a dynamic globalised world.
At West Spring, we know that change is the inevitable in today’s borderless world which we live in. Only a strong foundation in knowledge and a burning passion for lifelong learning will allow us to thrive in a future that change is the only constant. Special academic and character education programmes have been customised to ensure that our students are ready to embrace the future with confidence when they leave our doors.
After a long wait of four years, West Spring Secondary School finally shifted to its permanent residence in Bukit Panjang in January 2005. The school was officially declared opened by Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister of Community Development, Youth and Sports, on 9 September 2005.
Now located at 61 Senja Road, the school promises very exciting times ahead for those who seek new challenges with us.
