The education philosophy of Bendemeer Secondary School is anchored on our core belief that every child is unique and talented in his or her own way. This guides our teachers to see the potential in all our students, nurture their untapped talents and develop them into Singaporeans who are ready for the challenges of tomorrow.
Bendemeer Secondary School’s strong culture of care underpins its student development efforts across all levels. Rooted firmly in our belief of nurturing the whole child, we strive to develop our students holistically into responsible citizens who will be able to contribute to Singapore in their own meaningful ways.
I believe that the hallmark of having received a good education lies not in one’s achievements, but rather in how one uses them to be of service to others. This is encapsulated in our mission to be a school that serves the community. Our students and teachers live out this mission through the school’s many efforts to serve the community, especially those who are disadvantaged and less fortunate in our society.
It is indeed a privilege and an honour to be a part of the Bendemeer family. Together with our teachers, parents, community partners and stakeholders, I look forward to a journey of helping our students discover and fulfil their dreams.

A warm welcome to Bendemeer Secondary School.
This is my first year joining the school and I am humbled by the great work that the school has done for our students for the past 43 years. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of the family and contribute to the legacy.
COVID-19 has completely disrupted and changed the way we live our lives. Its impact on all sectors and industries will be felt for decades to come. We must prepare our children to be ready for this future. Our school’s vision of “Active Learners, Responsible Citizens” is more compelling than ever before – Beyond mastery of knowledge, we will equip our students with skills and competencies that will enable them to navigate their future and thrive.
More importantly, beyond individual achievements, we will help our students develop a strong moral compass so that they can do well by doing good to others. Our CCE Curriculum will be refreshed in 2021 to make the learning experiences more authentic, relevant and purposeful.
We are confident in our endeavours as we have a team of passionate teachers who shares the same philosophy as the school. They seek to build positive relationships with our students and create a caring environment that promotes positive student well-being.
2021 will bring new possibilities and experiences. I am committed to journey with each and everyone in the Bendemeer family to nurture every Bendemeerian to realise his/her potential. We will move forward as one and live out our school motto – “From Each His Best” every single day.
We are very grateful to parents and community partners for your unwavering support, care and commitment to our students.
I wish everyone an uplifting year ahead!
