Dear parents, guardians and students
As we begin a new school term in 2017, we look forward to a new year ahead with many enriching and exciting activities.
Just to share with you two new developments. We have restructured HCIS into two schools:
Middle School (Year 1, 2, 3 and Prep Course)
Senior School (Year 4, IB1 and IB2)
Together with the revised curriculum in Middle School, we hope to build a strong foundation in our students to prepare them well for Pre-IB and IB curriculum in Senior School.
We have also introduced a house system. The three houses are 自强 (ziqiang) ，嘉庚 (jiageng) and 光前 (guangqian). The first is from our school motto 自强不息 and the latter two are the names of our founders (Mr Tan Kah Kee and Dr Lee Kong Chian). Student-led activities will be initiated, planned and implemented through the three houses.
Here's wishing you a joyous and fruitful new year ahead!
YC Chin (Head of Middle School)
