We are pleased to share the CNY 2021 well wishes of our students!
A team of students participated in the Greenwave Environment Care Competition 2019 with their ‘Eco-Parfum’ project.

The school will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary in 2021. In commemoration of this milestone celebration, the school organized a Greendale Secondary 15th Anniversary Logo Design Competition in April 2020. The design of the winning entries were incorporated in the design development the final logo.
The Greendale Secondary 15th Anniversary logo was unveiled on 7 Aug as part of National Day Celebration. Here is the logo and its significance.
Greendale Secondary would like to congratulate Ms Tng Wee Li for receiving the Commendation Medal of the National Day Award 2020.
Ms Tng has served and led with great heart and passion. It is the school’s honour to work alongside her.
Thank you Ms Tng for reaching out to many Greendale students, as well as leading teams of teachers and colleagues to develop a culture of care, learning and excellence.
Greendale Secondary is proud of Beatrice Wong, a secondary 4 student, and her family for responding to nationwide movement to sew masks for fellow Singaporeans.
Beatrice and her brother Adriel, under the guidance of their mother, starting sewing masks not long after the onset of COVID-19 to donate to those who need them. Beatrice does most of the sewing and Adriel helps with the measuring and cutting.
The school is proud of our student and her family for Being the Difference in time of Adversity.

Greendale chooses to Be the Difference during this difficult time as the world and Singapore manages COVID-19 together.
Last week (Term 1 Week 6) our Sec 1s designed posters/comic strips: what we can do for our family during this period. Did they share these strips and posters with you at home? Here are just some samples of the amazing work they did in class!
Our Sec 2s went a step further. They chose to make a difference by showing appreciation to the school staff. They wrote appreciate notes to School Leaders, teachers, operations staff and cleaners. Here is a video of Mdm Wong receiving the notes from our Sec 2 students.
The Sec 3-5s created an impact beyond family and school. They wrote appreciation notes to our frontline healthcare workers at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. These notes were mailed out to them just in time for Valentine’s Day. As a result, by Friday, 14 February 2020, the noticeboards of Tan Tock Seng were covered with the heartfelt notes from Greendale students. We could tell the notes were well-received by the nurses because they sent a war, “Thank You” video!
We present you the video highlights of the school’s Chinese New Year Celebrations, which was held on last Friday, 24 January 2020, in school:

“The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams”
The annual GDLSS Graduation Ceremony for the Secondary 4/5 was held on 4 October 2019 (Friday).
It was an emotional ceremony for the students, teachers and parents. This ceremony marks the closure of a chapter, but it also signifies the beginning of another.
Teachers and many of the parents present had said they would not shed a tear, but the emotional moments of tenderness was too much to contain.
Planned and organised by the school management and teachers, every detail was meticulously looked into and carefully planned.
It was a special moment for all graduands when the Sec 4/5 Form Teachers took to the stage and sang a moving rendition of “If we hold on together”, sending out the message of “live believing; dreams never die”.
In return, the cohort delivered an emotional rendition of “Do I make you proud” to thank and appreciate the school, teachers and parents.
Not a single dry eye in the school hall on this day and this is the strongest testament of the bonds built between the teachers and students.
This graduation ceremony is the finale of the Class of 2019 in Greendale Secondary, where talents were nurtured and lives, inspired.
Every student received an unique graduation bear dressed in the school’s polo tee, and with a class gift filled full to the brim with loving thoughts and blessings from the Form Teachers of the graduating classes.
Indeed, the students went away with not only the memories of their life as a GDLSS student, but also the blessings of the school leaders and each and every teacher for their journey ahead.
As parents, we are more than heartened and appreciative of what had become of our children – Committed Learners, Critical Thinkers, Confident Leaders in their own rights.
All these would not be possible without the dedication and nurturing of the school leaders and teachers. ❤
To the Class of 2019, happy graduation 🎓! Remember, the best is yet to come! Game on and all the best for the rest of the N and O levels papers! 💪
