Rulang Primary School 孺廊小学 (Formerly Joo Long Public School 前公立孺廊学校)

1930- 1984; 1984 - Present

Rulang Primary School was founded in a shophouse at 13 m.s, Jurong Road in 1930, and began with Mr Yak Woh Hoon as the head of the school. Rulang Primary was originally known as Joo Long Public School, before it was 'pinyinized' to 'Rulang' when the school was converted into a government school in 1984. 

The school stood through the Japanese Occupation, though lessons were suspended then. A new school was built at Upper Jurong Road in 1950. Rulang Primary School was given new facilities in 1985, and then upgraded under the Programme for Rebuilding and IMproving Existing schools (PRIME) in 2002. PRIME was completed in January 2003. 

The school crest is a picture of a rising sun over the ocean.

Rulang Primary School School Song (Current)

Hail, Alma mater Rulang School
May you stand like an evergreen
To spread culture and develop talent
To teach the ways of scholars
And make us see
The importance of respect for others
The toil and sweat of our fathers
We'll never forget
The advice of friends and teachers
We're sure to remember
With you we march forward courageously
With time
We progress zealously.
