Hwa Chong Students Maintain Outstanding Performance at the Science Olympiads

19 Jan 2016

HCI students have emerged as one of the select few who have topped the 2015 Singapore Biology Olympiad with 3 Golds, 2 Silvers and 1 Bronze award.

The Gold medallists comprise Mok Kai Lin, Jacy (15S7B), Tan Rui, Lois (15S7B) and Shi Yao Eric (15S7B); the Silver medallists Wu Yanlong (15S7B) and Branden Low Yong Kang (15S7G) and the Bronze medallist Natanael Wijaya (15S7B).

Our Physics students have similarly shone at the 2015 Singapore Physics Olympiad with 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and 4 Honourable Mentions.

The Gold medalist is Wu Yikai (15S7B), the Silver medallists Fan Yang (15S7F) and Zhao Pengfei (15S7B) and the Honourable Mentions Ho Jie Feng (15S7D), Hu Xinchun (15S7D), Lor Jun Heng (15S7B) and Qian Jing (15S7B).

Not only have these students outperformed those from the previous year, they have done much better than the previous year in the number of gold medals attained.

We would like to congratulate these students and wish all Gold and Silver medallists the best of luck in their interviews to potentially represent Singapore at the International Olympiads!

Congratulations also to the teacher mentors of our aspiring scientists: Mrs Foo-Lam Woon Keat (Director/ Studies (College)), Mrs Tay-Choo Lay Kheng Cindy (Lecturer/ Biology), as well as Mr Kwek Wei Hong (Lecturer/ Physics), Mr Lee Lih Juinn (Lecturer/ Physics), Dr Erkan Polatdemir (Lecturer/ Physics) and Dr Dave Lommen (Lecturer/ Physics).
