Canberra Primary School was established in January 2000. It takes the name of the old Canberra School which closed down in 1988.
The school initially functioned at Wellington Primary School as its building at 21 Admiralty Drive was not ready. The school moved into its new premises in November 2000. It caters to the educational needs of pupils in the new Sembawang Estate.
In 2007 Canberra was selected by the Ministry of Education to be one of the first five FutureSchools@Singapore. FutureSchools@Singapore is a joint collaboration with MOE and the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) that will focus on innovative teaching approaches.
The school uses techniques such as Authentic Learning, Inquiry-based learning, Socratic Questioning and Guided Research. Three programmes - Discoverer, Global Learner and Attuned Learner, termed the Canberra Experience, are being phased in.
