The commemorate stone in the new main building of the Hwa Chong International School ( HCIS) records the spirit of selfless dedication and sacrifice in our Hwa Chong family. In addition, the BOD also completed the archival record of valuable paintings. The Hwa Chong family spirit was expanded during Hwa Chong Nanyang Combined Sports Meet when the underprivileged were invited to join the event. With the opening of the new gymnasium and swimming pool in HCIS, the School aims to promote holistic development in morality, intelligence, physique, community, and aesthetics. Another point to note is that while we have taken strides in developing world-class educational institution in and beyond Singapore, we should foster the preservation of our culture, history, heritage and encourage giving back to the society. As part of Sponsor Engagement, BOD organised a welcome event for new sponsors, hosted the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration and celebrated Teachers’ Day with the current school staff. All these activities including the re-connection with Hwa Chong retired teachers were well received.

Mr Ang Ming Hong, BOD Treasurer, provided a comprehensive report on the Audited financial statements for the financial year 2022. He emphasised that the financial position is sound and thank the ex-Board members for their vision, and current Board members for the strong governance framework.

Lastly, the Nomination Committee released the nomination results for the directors of the new term 2023-2025. As the number of nominees did not exceed the number of director seats, those nominees will automatically become the new board members.
