‘Limkopi’ Session

27 JUNE 2016

There is a new cafe at the college side of HCI. Run by an alumnae, the HCJC Alumni has arranged  for the cafe to be opened for alumni members  on the last Saturday of each month (except July). We hope that alumni will use these sessions to network with one another and to reminisce the good old times spent at HCJC.

The name of the cafe is College Times Cafe. During the “limkopi” session, coffee, tea, milo and kaya toast will be provided at no cost to alumni and their family. Other food items will be charged at cafe prices. A special lunch menu will also be provided.

The location of the cafe is at the new Holistic Education Centre next to the college canteen. You may drive up to the parking lots next to the cafe or come in via the MRT gate if you are traveling by MRT. Please stay tune for our announcement of the date for the monthly session.

Our stories. Your opportunities.

27th January 2016

The leap from junior college/ pre-university education to university and subsequently working life was often a fearful one with the journey being filled with great uncertainties.
 
This was exacerbated by insufficient knowledge on the courses offered by various universities and the possible career opportunities associated with the courses, as well as what the career entailed. 
To plug the gap in today's situation, a social initiative, in collaboration with the Hwa Chong Junior College alumni, was established to increase awareness of possible undergraduate courses and the career options/ opportunities associated with various undergraduate specializations. 
 
The project aims to help juniors/ prospective undergrads make more informed decisions about their choice of undergraduate course by considering the career they would like in future. 
The project collects inputs from the Hwa Chong Junior College alumni and their networks, and shares these personal anecdotes on their undergraduate education and their career paths of working professionals on a website called "Our stories. Your opportunities". The website (link: http://projectosyo.wix.com/projectosyo) was launched in January 2016 and to-date, 23 stories had been received.
 
The website would be updated on a weekly basis, publishing up to five stories each week. To juniors who had recently graduated and joined the alumni, do check out the website.
For alumni who are currently working, do help to contribute your stories by filling out the form (it's also listed on the website)! 

ePanorama 2015 Issue 2

30 November 2015
Note from Student Editor

Hello!

In this issue of Panorama, we celebrate the accomplishments and notable events of the Hwa Chong family in 2015. Presented here are snapshots of the latest issue, a peek into Hwa Chong's tradition of excellence.

Hwa Chong once again hosted the annual International Science Youth Forum. Spurred by this year's theme — "Becoming a Modern Scientist" — distinguished Nobel Laureates and students discussed harnessing science for humanity’s benefit.

Team Hwa Chong emerged triumphant at the Singapore Science Engineering Fair, proceeding to perform exemplarily at the Intel International Science Engineering Fair. Two of our Service Learning groups meanwhile blazed new trails at the Future Problem Solving Programme International Conference, weaving compassion and passion together to clinch prestigious awards amidst stiff competition. Locally, College students from the Chinese Orchestra reached out to the elderly at Ren Ci Hospital in an afternoon of melody and warmth.

In the spotlight for this issue is the publication 《华岗文学》, which for the past 34 years has chronicled the literary talent and flair of our High School students.

The Hwa Chong family’s tapestry of experience is indeed a diverse and distinguished one, and we hope that 2016 will be equally fulfilling.

Yours truly,

Hwa Chong Publications Society

Solving the Problems of Tomorrow with Vim and Vigour

Hwa Chong’s tradition of excellence at the Future Problem Solving Programme International Conference (FPSPI) continued in 2015, with two Service Learning groups clinching top awards.

Project Integrate sought to assimilate transient workers into society. Their extensive efforts earned them first place in the Community Problem Solving category (Senior Division) and the prestigious E. Paul Torrance Beyonder Award.

Project Keep In Reach, which focused on helping beneficiaries from TOUCH Centre for Independent Living and the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore to integrate better into society, clinched the third placing in the same category.

Motivated to make society more inclusive, both teams pushed through the tough process of conceptualisation and execution, ultimately achieving success. They urge other Service Learning teams to persevere in trying times and hope their projects reflect the abilities of youth to positively impact society.

The Power of Nanoparticles — Scientific Innovation in the International Arena

Motivated to alleviate the outbreak of waterborne diseases, Benjamin Tan Kye Jyn (15S7B), Tan Yi Zhao (15S7G) and Lim Zheng Theng (15S7J) sought to find a cost-effective, non-toxic method of purifying water, helping many who lack access to clean water.

With their project “Synthesis of Electrospun Nanosilver-Functionalised Nylon 6 Nanofibres for Membrane Water Purification”, the team emerged first at the annual Singapore Science and Engineering Fair. This earned them the right to represent Singapore at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pennsylvania, where they clinched Second Award in the category of Environmental Engineering. They also received the Special Award for the Best Example of Team Science in the Life Sciences category from Sigma Xi, the distinguished international honor society of science and engineering.

These achievements did not come easily. The team encountered failure multiple times, but were spurred on to work hard by their mentor, Mrs. Sow-Peh Yoke Keow (Principal Consultant / Research).

Benjamin advises his juniors, “Dream big. You never know what you can achieve until you try.”

《华岗文学》- 展现文采与才华的平台

      至今已走过34个年头的《华岗文学》是学生展现文采与才华的平台。这本刊物致力于将学生对文字的喜爱与追求,逐字逐句地保存下来,同时把最真实、最鲜活的年轻学子的精神风貌和内心世界呈现给关心华中的人。秉承推陈出新的精神,历届学生编委会力求在内容上兼容并蓄,在创作形式、版面设计和出版概念上不断追求卓越,通过封面、封底、插图、摄影等细节的精心设计,让读者深刻感受文学的丰富和美感。

琴声和玫瑰如阳光送暖

      2月7日,一个阳光灿烂的周末午后,高中部华乐团一行30人到仁慈社区医院做义工。由于农历新年将至,团员们特意弹奏多首热情而欢快的乐曲,让病房洋溢着佳节喜庆详和的气氛。除了陪伴疗养中的年长病患谈天、玩牌、折纸,团员更送上亲手制作的纸玫瑰和千纸鹤,祝福老人早日康复。赠人玫瑰,手有余香;心中有爱,温情弥亮,这次的社区服务不仅给有需要者捎去温暖,也让团员充分体会奉献和感恩的真谛。

Pearls of Wisdom at the 7th International Science Youth Forum (ISYF) Nobel Forum

With the theme “Becoming a Modern Scientist”, the 7th ISYF inspired attendees to look towards the future.

Much of the panel discussion with the Nobel Laureates also centred on the qualities that future modern scientists require. Urging young scientists to be patient and humble in their efforts to push the boundaries of modern science, the Laureates remarked that passion is key to success, because it can help scientists find “a poetic way of doing science”.

For aspiring modern scientists, the path ahead might be challenging, but it promises discovery, personal growth and societal progress!

Outstanding Partner Award by CDAC

Feb, 2015
Hwa Chong Institution has been conferred the Outstanding Partner Award by the Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC). This is the highest award given to an organization that has contributed significantly to CDAC since 2006.

Two significant collaborations include:
  1. The Homework Clinic with CDAC@Redhill, where student volunteers provide weekly coaching to CDAC beneficiaries on their school work.
  2. The Food Drive, where teachers, students and their parents, help to pack and distribute food items and necessities to more than 550 CDAC beneficiary families.
In addition, HCI has been conferred the Community Service Award by Pertapis Children's Home. The special award was given for continuous and outstanding contribution to the home by Hwa Chong staff and students.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, the school adopted Pertapis Children's Home in 2012. To date, Hwa Chong staff have raised close to $33,000 to support the home. Among other things, teachers and students conduct weekly homework coaching and enrichment classes. Last year, the school also organized a series of career talks for the children.

Lorraine’s “Moments of Love” Music Video

AUG, 2014
Started in 2011, "My Singapore Project" is a creative and meaningful effort led and founded by Lorraine to inspire and bring people together to contribute to the less fortunate through music and arts.
image001My Singapore movement provides opportunities for children to experience music and the arts on a larger scale, and helps inculcate in them the values of giving and charity by allowing them to see and feel for themselves the power of giving. The movement also celebrates National Day while remembering the less privileged in our society.
 
My Singapore 2014 ended on a high note on 12th Aug 2014 with a music concert for 3500 people at The Star Performing Arts Centre with The President of Singapore Mr Tony Tan Keng Yam as the Guest of Honour. The project raised more then $200,000 for the 64 charities under President's Challenge 2014. More then 300 students from different schools in Singapore also participated in this project.
Similar to previous years, we will produce a theme song and MV to be shared on YouTube near National Day.
 
Here's the music video of this year's My Singapore theme song, entitled "Moments of Love":
