Attention all Hwa Chongians: There’s more than one way to show your love for Singapore!
National Day is round the corner, and we have an exciting line-up for you this year.
SNEC is bringing to you a Photography Exhibition cum Competition themed, “Loving Singapore, Our Home” to commemorate this year’s National Day. If photography isn’t your cup of tea, why not try your hand at singing a similarly themed song cover for our Song Cover Competition to express your love for Singapore? Exciting prizes await you, including ice-cream vouchers for winning submissions, and an opportunity for the top three groups to perform in front of the entire school during this year’s National Day Concert.
Photography Exhibition cum Competition
Submit your photo and a short write-up as to why the photo reflects the theme to email@example.com by 28 July 2012, 5PM. The photos will be put up on the SNEC board and Facebook page from 30 July 2012 till 8 August 2012 for you to vote for your favourite photo. Top three photos with the most number of Facebook likes will stand to receive attractive Island Creamery vouchers during the National Day Concert!
Song Cover Competition
Read on to gain a better understanding of ‘Loving Singapore, Our Home’!
We are a people of different races, religions and languages united as Singaporeans by a unique culture, a common heritage and a shared identity. We have built our nation together through common ideals and an indomitable spirit.
The theme for National Day Parade (NDP) 2012 is “Loving Singapore, Our Home”. “Loving Singapore” encourages Singaporeans to reflect on what it means to love our country, what we appreciate about Singapore, and how each individual can express our love for our nation. It is an invitation for all Singaporeans to join us on the NDP 2012 journey to rediscover and remember what we love best about our country.
“Our Home” expresses the fundamental reason why we love our country; it reminds us that despite our differences, we all call this island “Home”. It is where we grew up and where our future generations will continue to reside. “Our Home” emphasises the fact that the prospects of the country and her people are intertwined. It reminds all Singaporeans that we have a part to play in keeping this “Home” together.
Taken together, the NDP 2012 theme evokes the warmth and fondness we feel for our country, and the comfort and familiarity of home. A feeling that resonates with Singaporeans from all walks of life, “Loving Singapore, Our Home” calls us to celebrate everything that we love about Singapore this national day.
Hey Hwa Chong,
It’s time for our annual racial harmony week! Enjoy the razzmatazz of activities like the sale of yummy Malay kueh from 18-20 July and the Racial Harmony Day celebrations for C1s and C2s on 16th and 18th of July respectively. You are also encouraged to don your ethnic costumes on the 18th of July to celebrate Racial Harmony Day! A photography booth will be set up for you and your friends to take pictures on that day.

YAWP! (Young Adult Writers Perform) is a night of poetry and performance – a competitive platform for contestants to bring out the value of literary arts to their audience. YAWP! 2011 is no different, with this year’s theme being adapted from Margaret Atwood’s poem “A Woman’s Issue”.
YAWP! 2011: Exhibit A hopes to look beyond its gritty subject matter, with a refocus on the discovery of self through art; allowing participants to journey inwards and to transform literature from page to stage.
Come watch your friends battle it out in teams or as individuals. There will also be an Open Mic Round, where audience members can head onstage to share their own – or their favourite – literary pieces.
This year we’re honored to have poets Ms. Teng Qian Xi (author of ‘They hear salt crystallising’) and Mr. Yeow Kai Chai (author of ‘Pretend I’m Not Here’ and ‘Secret Manta’), as well as our previous Literature Wing Head Akilan Shanmugaratnam, adjudicate the competition, and share their work with us.
We are also pleased to have Theophilus Kwek, the latest voice in Singapore’s literary scene, share some extracts from his poetry collection ‘They Speak Only Our Mother Tongue’.
Date: Friday, 22nd July 2011
Venue: Lecture Theatre 3 @ Hwa Chong Institution (College Section)
Tickets: $4 each
To place ticket orders, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or text Cheryl our Ticketing I/C at 93218366. You can also buy them from the Front of House.

This year’s Inter-school Bridge Championships held at CJC on the 1st of May saw 27 teams from various JCs in Singapore.
After 4 grueling qualifying rounds, the three HC teams cleared the cut-off point for quarterfinals.
The team comprising Lim Kah Hong (09S7E), Goh Zheng Yang (09S6F), Daren Khu (09S7B) and Chen Yuanxi (09S6A) lost to the defending champions (and eventual champions) RJ1, and finished team 6th.
The team comprising Li Lan (09S6F), Shaun Tho (09S6C), Chen Xin Ying & Zheng Yifei (09S7J), Cheong Song Yu (09S74) and Fu Ruiqi (09S63) tied in the quarters but unfortunately lost the first hand in Sudden Death, finishing team 5th.
On the other hand, the J1 team comprising Khor Shi-Jie (10S7F), Lim Chern Yuen (10S7D), Joseph Kang (10S6D) and Peter Haw (10S7B) beat RJ3 and VJ1 to reach the finals and finished 1st runners up!
Bike Hike is BACK! The theme for this year is Accelebration, as we celebrate the joys of cycling along with Singapore’s hosting of the YOG. Held on the 28th of May, this year’s bike hike promises to be BIGGER and BETTER, with more participants from all JCs around Singapore coming together to break once again the Singapore record (that we ourselves set in 2009) for the largest number of people in an overnight cycling event.
Bike Hike is an annual cycling event organised by Tiong Bahru YEC and supported by Hwa Chong OAC, in which you will get to cycle, along with your friends, through a route of 80km around Singapore. There will be sufficient rest stops along the way for you to hydrate and refresh yourselves as well.
Look forward to a night of fun, accompanied by views of the beautiful night landscape as we wind our way past notable landmarks such as the Singapore River, the Singapore flyer, Haw Par Villa and more. We’ve also kept some of the familiar thrills from last year such as the adrenaline-rush inducing down slope from the old race track, fondly referred to as Initial D.
Also, expect collaterals and freebies from our sponsors Zouk, PreciousThots and many more, as well as the LIMITED EDITION Accelebration T-shirt that comes with your goodie bag! So hesitate no more, form your groups, and submit your registration forms(as attached) to any friendly OAC member today! You may team up with students from other JCs or Polytechnics as well, or simply join as an individual and get to know more people!
Feel free to contact Daniel from 09S63 at 96699580 or Jerrold from 09A13 at 97475833 should there by any further enquiries, or simply send us an email at email@example.com. Visit our event blog at http://bikehike2010.blogspot.com for more details and updates!

See you there!
