The opening ceremony of the newly renovated Holistic Education Centre (HEC) and Indoor Sports Complex (ISC) was held on 21st March 2018. The hall was brimming with excitement as students lined up eagerly to welcome Guest-of-Honour, Ms Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and our many other distinguished guests for the evening. Many were anticipating the official opening of the HEC and ISC, which boasts a variety of resources and services available to students, such as the Education and Careers Guidance Centre, flexible learning spaces and multi-purpose sports halls.

As Guest-of-Honour and a Hwa Chong alumna, Ms Fu took the stage to address Hwa Chong’s responsibility to nurture students’ appreciation for diversity, and to acknowledge the school’s excellence in both academic and non-academic areas. She was confident that the HEC would allow Hwa Chong students to pursue their interests and “place the school in a good state for the future of education.”

With the school management team, Ms Fu unveiled the plaque that symbolised the official launch of the new building, drawing the event to a close. As the distinguished guests made their way out of the hall, our student athletes from Table Tennis, Basketball and Volleyball demonstrated their tenacity and skill through their respective drills and warm up exercises; even inviting Ms Fu and our Principal to play a few rounds of Table Tennis. The event ended on a high note, leaving both guests, students and staff with a sense of excitement about the myriad of experiences that await them as Hwa Chong enters its 99th year of establishment.
