160th Anniversary Celebrations

The Alumni will mark this special year with two exciting days of activities to be held in November at CHIJMES where the Singapore IJ chapter began.

The Alumni wants to mark this special anniversary in the same spirit of helping those in need with the inauguration of the IJ Spirit Fund.

IJ Gala Dinner

CHIJ Gala14b

Friday 28th November 2014 was certainly a night to remember for the IJ community in Singapore. Amidst the beautiful setting of CHIJmes, in a hall with such special memories for so many, the IJ sisters, IJ teachers (past and present), IJ girls (past and present), family and friends of the IJ community gathered to renew and strengthen the bonds which exist between us.

It was a dinner with friends and also a walk down memory lane. Guests were treated to a magical presention by sand artist Tan Sock Fong which took us on a journey through the history of CHIJ in Singapore, all through sand pictures dynamically created in a live presentation.

The evening had a dual purpose – to bring the IJ community together on this 160th anniversary and to collect funds for the IJ Spirit fund which was achieved through ticket sales, an auction and through generous donations made on the night. All in all it was an evening which made us proud of our rich heritage and was proof that the IJ Spirit of love and service is indeed burning strong!
