Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Damansara or SKBD as it is fondly known, is a co-educational primary school, nestled in the prime and peaceful residential district of Damansara Heights. The School started in 1982 with 9 teachers and 99 students. Today, the School has over 50 teachers and more than 1,100 students.
Over the years, SKBD has earned itself a reputation as a model primary school in Malaysia. SKBD consistently ranks among the country’s top performing schools in the UPSR exam, attaining the “Prestige School” status. In the 2007 USPR examination, SKBD emerged as the best performing school in the Federal Territory, bagging three JPWPKL awards, namely 1) Pencapaian UPSR Terbaik Sekolah Kebangsaan
2) Pencapaian Peratus UPSR 'A' Paling Tinggi
3) Pencapaian Peratus UPSR Mengikut Gred Purata.
The School is staffed by a team of dedicated teachers and together with the parents we are focused in our pursuit to help our students be the BEST they can be - academically, emotionally, mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. Our mission is to prepare our students to be outstanding achievers and leaders of tomorrow.
Environmental Awareness Activities
SKBD is very committed with regards to environmental issues and one of the ways in which we contribute towards this cause is through regular collections of old newspapers, clothes and aluminium cans for recycling. Recycling competitions are held among the classes throughout the year which are enthusiastically participated in by all the students.
In addition to the above, every year SKBD raises funds to save a specific endangered specie of local wildlife. This activity started in 1999 with the 'Save Our Seas' campaign, and since then the following endangered species have been chosen every consecutive year thereafter:
In February 2007 SKBD students had the honour of performing the official song of the Billion Tree Campaign, Pokok-Pokok, in Nairobi, Kenya, at the invitation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Incidentally, Pokok-Pokok was written by SKBD's former head prefect, Jes Ebrahim in 2006.
In addition to its pursuit of academic excellence, the School takes great pride in its involvement in co-curricular activities. SKBD never fails to send representatives for MSSMKL and JPWP competitions, in which our students fare very well indeed and have won several awards.
SKBD also believes that education should not be confined to within the school. The School has successfully organised educational trips for its senior students to Penang and Langkawi, as well as a number of expeditions to destinations such as Gua Kelam, Gua Mulu & Niah and Mount Kinabalu.
