White Sands Primary School started in January 1998 with 222 pupils in the premises of Park View Primary School. By the end of 1998, the new school building at 2 Pasir Ris Street 11 was completed. The school moved to its present site in January 1999 and held its official opening in July 2000. Prior to 2001, the school had functioned as a single-session school.

Four levels (P3 - P6) are in the morning session while 2 levels (P1 & P2) are in the afternoon session.

I remember the days when I counted every cent I had and strategised my expenditure on recess snacks. Having grown up in WSPS has brought about many fond memories especially when we were in Primary One.
During one Physical Education lesson, our teacher allowed us to play anything we wanted and we picked "Ice and Water" which was something like catching and my class enjoyed it very much. One fine day, when recess got too boring I suggested to a few classmates why not we played Ice and Water and soon enough, the whole class got involved, and even next-door classmates and the next-next-door classmates heard about it and joined it too! That was one of the best moments in my life.
Playing catching every school day certainly helped in another significant event in WSPS, sport's day. I looked forward to it every year. Lessons were cancelled and every single student was involved in this event. Donning in our House P.E. T-shirts, it inculcated a sense of loyalty and pride to excel for our House teams. The various Houses were: Seagull, Pelican, Kingfisher, Hawk. The Houses were named after sea birds in theme with White Sands. I remember that adrenaline moment when I cheered at the top of my voice for my team mates and that moment when I was the one hopping in the gunnysack. Physically, I felt like giving up, but mentally, I didn't want to. WSPS has indeed taught me so much values which I hold close to my heart even till today.
