Haunted Schools In Singapore

Stories from an overactive imagination or based on fact? Here are some legendary tales from schools here that have sent chills down the spines of many students.

Anglo Chinese School

The junior college was rumored to be haunted by a boy who jumped into the gears, in the gear room of the clock tower. Reports of students being possessed were also common.

Boon Lay Secondary School

The school had a pond in the middle of the science block with classes. It was said that if one looked into the pond at night, you will not see your reflection, but an unfamiliar face peering back at you.

CHIJ St Joseph's Convent

There is a toilet cubicle there which is always locked. It is said to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who was raped while waiting for her parents in school, and then hung herself in the toilet.

Clementi Town Secondary School

A headless ghost allegedly haunts the Home Economics and Science Lab, some have even seen its detached head rolling on the floor.

Gan Eng Seng Secondary

Even teachers allegedly are afraid of entering the Art Class on the 4th storey alone. From the classroom, one can allegedly hear a lady's voice singing, coming from the rooftop of the building.

Haig Girls' School

According to some, the school used to be a place to hold prisoners-of-war during World War II. There is an area within the school compound which has more than the usual rate of accidents occurring. Many people would trip and fall when walking along the area. It was also rumoured that if you walk across the school field diagonally at night, you will be greeted by an old woman asking you to buy matchsticks from her.

Hai Sing Catholic School

A statue of the mother mary there was said to be seen with blood dripping from it. In 2001, a rumour circulated that female students camping on the school premises woke up in the middle of the night scratching themselves, seemingly possessed, but returned to normal a few minutes later.

Loyang Secondary School

The girl's toilet on the fourth floor of the old block is said to be haunted, which is why the lights there are on 24 hours. AVA student helpers also claim to have seen a figure of a woman walking backstage in the school hall.

Ngee Ann Polytechnic

Rumour has it a female student died in one of the engineering workshop because her hair got stuck in a machine. Screams can be heard from the workshop at night.

Pei Dao Secondary (now known as Punggol Secondary)

The story is that smacking and hitting noises could be heard at night, coming from the basketball court. The music room was also rumoured to be haunted with the piano playing by itself every night at 12am sharp. The school has since been relocated and renamed to Punggol Secondary School.

Queenstown Secondary School

The famous story from this school is about how a tombstone was found in the field by students.

Tampines Secondary School

The school is said to be haunted by the spirit of a girl who was raped and killed by construction workers at the site when the school was still being built in the 1980s.

Temasek Polytechnic

The corriders from block 18 within the Engineering faculty were allegedly so haunted that guards would not patrol that area.

Rumour has it an Indian worker was accidentally buried alive in one of the pillars, when cement was poured into the construction while he was binding wires within it.

According to another story told by a guard, he saw a student at the lockers as he was patrolling one day. He turned back to the same spot a few minutes later, to find a piece of newspaper on the floor with the student's face he just saw. Turns, out the student was killed by a car at the bus stop a few months back.

Tanjong Katong Secondary

Band members who stayed the night reported being disturbed while they were sleeping.

Yuying Secondary

Teachers and principals have reportedly seen silhouettes of children running around the school compound located in Hougang when they work. It was said that when the school was doing its upgrading work, construction workers witnessed strange occurrences and started to quit one by one.

Singapore Polytechnic
Unlucky #13 or just a coincidence? The institute has blocks named T1, T2, T3…..but no T13.

Unverified rumours say a student committed suicide at one of the toilets in the teaching block, after stabbing a lecturer (the lecturer died too). Screams can be heard at night when part-time students are having classes.

Bedok View Secondary School

The toilet next to the biology lab on the ground floor is allegedly haunted by a long-haired ghost, obsessed with combing her hair in front of the mirror. Rumour has it a few girls have gone into the toilet, only to run out screaming and crying after seeing the apparition.

Pasir Ris Crest Secondary School

A construction worker committed suicide in the school's toilet when it was still being constructed. It was rumoured that the toilet was locked ever since after students complained about seeing a man stabbing himself repeatedly in the stomach.
