Become a Sponsor

Sponsors are official members of SCHS, apprised regularly of major SCHS developments, and can contribute their views for the betterment of the Hwa Chong Family.

In 2020, the Board of Directors worked fervently with HCIS to kick off various initiatives. We believe this effort will elevate the school's standing as well as the students' academic achievements and personal development.
