Hwa Chong 92nd Anniversary Celebrations

Foreword

Foreword by Chang Zi Qian (President, Youth Chapter)

小时候觉得生日每年都过,庆不庆祝无所谓。长大后发现自己其实很想过生日,但就是因为“种种原因”都搁置了而没庆祝。如今即将毕业的我对生日又有了新的体会 - 过生日是给全部忙人一个召开聚会的好机会。母校庆生更是如此!大家平日都在各领域努力,3月21日就应该喘口气,召集所有同窗好友为母校校庆而相聚。还记得中一迎新会的时候,学生理事会里的学长跟新生交谈时谈到了校庆,说道“华中校庆3月21日,3,2,1,容易记,身为华中子弟的一定要记住!”不知道为什么,那次的印象特别深刻,让我在离校9年后的今天也不忘校庆这特别的日子。十二年后的今天,也希望通过青少团的平台向所有年轻的校友招手,借机会勾起大家对母校以及朋友的回忆并希望大家能够在百忙之余抒发对母校的情感。华中是大家的一个集体回忆,就让大家的文与彩荟萃于此,继续为母校这片学习之乡增添姿彩,注入生机!

Message by Soh Yi Da (Organising Chairman)

As Hwa Chong celebrates its 92nd Anniversary on March 21st this year, the Hwa Chong Alumni Association Youth Chapter has put together a series of initiatives to engage the Hwa Chong family. You may choose to pen down your well wishes and dedications on our online guest book or express your love for the school through both English and Chinese literary fashion in our "I LOVE HC" and "爱我华中" Literary Competitions. Photography enthusiasts can participate in our 3.21 SNAP Photography Contest and showcase the captured moments of our rich school life and Hwa Chong's majestic landscape.

Join me in celebrating the remarkable achievements of this world-class institution par excellence and indulge in the revelry as we reminisce the beautiful memories we have had in Hwa Chong. May the Hwa Chong Spirit stay strong and ablaze for the many years to come!

With greatest passion for my alma mater,
Soh Yi Da

The two most important lessons Hwa Chong have taught me was "饮水思源" and "自强不息". My fullest gratitude and thanks to everyone in the Hwa Chong family, you provided me with such a magical, unforgettable experience and gave me a chance to pursue my dreams. And may Hwa Chong continue to prosper and reach new heights!

华中不止是一所国际闻名的学府,她更是我们可爱的母校;她哺育我们成长,教导我们成才。六年的熏陶让我们渐渐理解了自强不息和饮水思源深奥的含义。今年母校92岁了,却比任何时候更有活力。我借此机会,祝我的母校华中生日快乐,更上一层楼!
