White Sands Primary School started operating on 02 January 1998 and was officially opened on 22 July 2000. The school celebrated her 20th Anniversary in August 2017, in conjunction with the National Day celebrations and our annual HeArts Shine fiesta. Over the past 2 decades, the school has built a good reputation for the quality of care and the holistic education she provides.

The school is committed to nurturing self-directed and collaborative learners who are not only confident and creative but also concerned citizens and leaders of tomorrow.  The learning and well-being of all our pupils remains our highest priority as we work towards achieving these goals.

The school has undergone PERI upgrading and the entire project was completed in 2016.Pupils are now able to enjoy the use new facilities such as the additional teaching block, Indoor Sports Hall, synthetic field, special rooms and classrooms equipped with new design norms, as well as Outdoor Experiential Learning areas. We are grateful to be equipped with a lift that serves the existing 4-storey classroom block.

We know that the materials in making a good school require more than the bricks and mortar. Our staff, parents and the community work hand in hand to realise our mission – ‘To nurture caring hearts, creative minds and confident individuals’. Our dedicated team of teachers role-model the school values of C4RE - Care, Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Rallying Together and Excellence. Together all of us can strive to foster a vibrant school of choice where character shines and talents soar.

It is our pleasure to introduce the Fathers@ WSPS group of parents. This group of fathers has planned and conducted a number of activities that strengthen family bonds. Fathers @ WSPS has indeed complemented the good work carried out by the Parents Support Group (most of whom are mothers) all these years. Together with the staff of the school, these fathers and mothers serve as good role-models for the pupils in exemplifying the C4RE values.

White Sands Primary has all the makings of a good school. Together, we can achieve much in shaping the lives and values of our pupils for the challenges of tomorrow. We are confident of our pupils in becoming caring, creative and confident individuals as they soar to greater heights in years to come.
