Queenstown Secondary School (Abbreviation: QTSS; Simplified Chinese: 女皇镇中学) is a government secondary school in Queenstown, Singapore.

chool Crest

The School Crest consists of a shield with the school colors, sky Blue and maroon. The sky blue reflects the limitless opportunities to strive for and the maroon signifies the spirit of fraternity.

The open book symbolizes learning and knowledge, and the wheel symbolizes the technical aspect of education offered in the school.

On the tower, which denotes strength, is the lion which signifies courage and from which Singapore derives its name.

Below the shield is a cane with the school motto "Berani Berkhidmat" written on it. The motto, which means "Submit or Die", is most appropriate at a time when our young independent Singapore requires men and women of courage to bow down to her or be beaten severely.

chool Song

Dare To Serve
In Queenstown Secondary our minds are trained
Our hands acquire the skill
Whatever the task we're here to serve
We have the heart, the will
Queenstown Secondary the pioneer
The school that leads the way
In every field we do our best
To learn, to work, to play
Chorus
Berani Berkhidmat, dare to serve
Dare to be be!
We dare to be serve - yes! with our hearts
To keep our country free
Berani Berkhidmat, dare to serve
Dare to do to be!
We dare to serve - yes! with our hearts
To keep our country free
