Director's Foreward

Dear Aphelionites,

Welcome back to school! I hope that you have a fruitful holiday and have opportunities to recharge yourselves and be ready for a new year!

Last year, we bid farewell to Dr. Hon Chiew Weng, Principal of HCI, who was with the school for the last 35 years.

For this year, we welcome our new Principal, Mr. Pang Choon How, an alumnus to the school. Mr. Pang has a colourful career and varied experience and we look forward for Hwa Chong to continue to grow under his leadership.

We would like to continue to encourage our students to continue to take ownership and responsibility for their learning and growth.

Work with your teachers, your peers and your parents towards greater heights! You should also be caring to others, putting others before self! Go beyond your comfort zones and try new experiences.

"If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything." - Thich Nhat Hanh

Blessed 2018!

Warmest regards always,

Dr. Chew Tyng Yong
