Serangoon Garden North School

I used to attend this Primary School. This school no longer exist in the MOE list. You can never find this school image anywhere over the internet nor you will ever hear from it ever again.


Just that day I thought of going to the reference library to extract some information or rather some pictures of the school I remember by. Sad to say that they have nothing much out of it. Mostly microfiche or microflim. Can't even see them well without printing it out. Printing the 10% of the book is a total waste. Thus I only selected some relevant ones in which I really would like to remember by.

Picture of how Serangoon Garden North School used to be like

Serangoon Garden North School

Location 1 - That used to be a place where we would play one legged cathching or police catch
thief.

Location 2 - That used to be the place where the school staff would park their cars. I remember
telling stories to everybody at that location during an assembly. This I definitely
can't forget.

The School Crest is also something to remember by

I studied in this school 1966-69. I used to live in Serangoon Gardens. I remember the tuck-shop and the ground used to be soggy in front of it. ...how the school was once flooded in the rains I don't exactly remember which year... I think it should be in 1968.
There used to be a wind-vane at the top of the building...
Brings back memories.
Thanks a million for posting these pictures :)

I studied in this school in 1970 to 1972 - primary 5 and primary 6. One thing that I enjoyed most was the hamtam bola and ram football against serangoon south school - as we shared a common football field. The two years in the school was my most memorable years in my life. Another interesting things we did was catching fish at jalan hwi yeo - i miss those days. The teachers were very nice and kind - especially ms eu, ms oei and ms lim (cannot remember their full name).

i have always wanted to form a old boys club - if anyone is interested contact me - davidtan@omegacapital.com.sg

I found the pictures in Facebook.Thanks a million for them.They brought back memories of rainy days that flooded the sand pit and some of us would try to catch fish or tadpoles.The flooded canal on the side carrying colorful platic objects,broken dolls.The morning glory vine and flowers on the fence.
I was studying in the school between 1963-1969.
