Pei Hwa Public School












Pei Hwa Public School was one of the main icons in the Jalan Kayu / Seletar West area and it was situated opposite Boh Sua Tian Lou ( Wireless Road).

History of Pei Hwa
- Established 1934 (British Rule)
- Wholly financed by early immigrants from China residing in Yio Chu Kang and Jln Kayu
- Operation of the school was interrupted during the Jap Occupation & WW2
- Restarted after war with renewed vigour with increase in student population
- In 1954 , through the generosity of Community leaders , 5 acres of land was purchased and new 2 storey school building erected.
- In 1976 , Pei Hwa Public school was one of the biggest & most complete village
School in Sinapore
- With the resettlement of many villages in mid 1980s and declining popularity
of Chinese education , the school's intake dwindled and this caused the Student
population numbers to drop from high of 1300 to 200
- School ceased operation in 1990

After a break of 15 years , a new school in Sengkang was build with the support from the Pei Hwa Foundation and it was renamed Pei Hwa Secondary School. A new beginning with an illustrious history not found in many other neighbourhood schools.

you know what, create a FB just for Pei Hwa Public school is a great suggestion. I am a student from year 1979 to 1984. Actually, stays back for one more year due to too good in making trouble and missed to leave Pei Hwa that much. Really hope to see a web page for all die hard Pei Hwa Public School friends. I also missed my Chinese teacher- MR Yu Qing Hua.
