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!

IJHCC provides a safe environment for children from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds to live, learn and grow. You can help make this a very special day for the children in these 2 ways.

The IJ Homes provide a safe environment for at-risk children from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds to live, learn and grow. This year, with the support from kind sponsors and volunteers, the Alumni organised a learning journey to the River Safari for the children from IJ Homes on 10th June 2015.
We would like to thank all sponsors and volunteers for providing the children with a meaningful and enjoyable day.
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. Our aim in this 160th year is to raise $160,000 to get the Spirit Fund started. Please contribute to this effort by participating in the 160th anniversary events.
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!
Let's support all our Primary 6, Secondary 4 and 5 girls who are studying hard for their final examinations.
The IJ Homes provide a safe environment for at risk children from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds to live, learn and grow. This year the Alumni will be organizing a party for the IJ sisters as well as children from IJ Homes.
