Alumni is a word from the latin: literally meaning “student” or “nourish”. I particularly like this concept of nourishment; we have been nurtured by our alma mater and in return, we seek to “give back” what we have received; passing on the flame so to speak.
The CHIJ Alumni aims to be the glue that binds both present and past students ; forming an intangible bond
that embodies living out our school motto of “simple in virtue, steadfast in duty”.
We live in a world vastly different from when CHIJ was first established in Singapore in 1854. Yet the “IJ spirit,” being an “IJ girl”, the assurance that “an IJ friend is a friend for life” stay with us.
