If you are able to help and give our IJ girls the invaluable experience, please email Mrs Irene Tan This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 1Sep 2018.

As part of our annual tradition, the CHIJ Alumni organises a Pre-Exams Mass for our CHIJ Primary and Secondary girls who are preparing to sit for the national examinations.

We wish them all the best and seek God's blessings for each and every one of our girls.

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.
