This year, CHIJ Alumni Association organized the annual event for children from IJHCC, in conjunction with Art Outreach on 7 June 2018. Our CHIJ Alumni volunteers accompanied 32 children from IJHCC on an “Art in Transit” learning journey to appreciate Art pieces exhibited at Stadium, Nicoll Highway and Promenade MRT stations. The children demonstrated their learnings through collaborating with their team mates on their own art pieces.
Based on the children’s feedback, the highlight was the Art Explorers Workshop at Art Outreach’s premises at Gillman Barracks, where they had the opportunity to express their creativity by designing their own tote bags. Check out the impressive tote bag designs! To end off the day, Art Outreach made arrangements for the children to have creative play at Playeum next door.
Big thanks to our volunteers for spending the day with the IJHCC children, to our sponsors for their generous donations and Art Outreach for making this event a big success.

Every year, the IJ Alumni organises a Career Seminar for our graduating class of students. The Career Seminar aims to provide our students an opportunity to explore different career options and gain an understanding of various industries through an interactive and informal session with our volunteers from any professions/industries. It is an important time for them as they consider their career paths and the decisions that they have to make as they move to the next phase of their tertiary education.
This year's career seminar has been scheduled for 11 Apr (Wed) 2018. We are looking for volunteers who are keen to share about their industry/profession and provide valuable insights with our graduating class of 2017. Any industries/profession welcomed!
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
‘It only takes a spark, to get a fire going, And soon all those around. will warm up in its glowing.’
This is how it is with the IJ alumni that you have chosen to be a part of.
We have all, in a way unique to each of us, been invigorated by the IJ spirit. Leaving school should not have to mean that this fire dies. The laughter, the love and the sharing, these memories that defined your days at IJ, remain our commitment to you as the CHIJ Alumni body.
Here, at the CHIJ Alumni Association, each one of us can continue to come together as that family with ties that cannot be broken, no matter how old we get or how far we go because our hearts remain with the school that made us who we are today.
