Over the last few weeks, Grade 10 produced different scamp drawings in pencil, think point fine-liner pen and permanent markers. Students learned to recognize ‘negative space’ (background) and ‘positive space’ (foreground) while practicing observation skills and ability to work in detail.
During this week (25th September to 29th September), the G11 and G12 DP Geography students completed their mid-semester assessments on their units “Population and Change” and “Patterns in Resource consumption” respectively.
The Grade 11 History class visited the World War Two exhibition presented by the National Archives of Singapore at the historic Former Ford Factory. Students learned about life in Singapore before, during and after WWII. After the visit, students commented on how they felt that the history they are learning in class came alive during the visit.
Middle and High school students are going to Vietnam (Mai Chau and Sapa) and Cambodia (Siem Reap) to render service to the community there from 8th to 13th October.
We are going to construct fences and paint walls for schools, build toilet and water well for villagers and interact with local community.
HWA is a premier institution with a mission of bicultural excellence at its core. In these hallways, bright young minds experience an enriching blend of cultures and learn to take on the world with a global perspective.
This is what I believe we are, and can be.
As I learn the ropes of my role in this wonderful community, I have had the opportunity to see, hear and immerse myself in the enthusiasm and excitement of our very own PYP students.
Last year Scouts CCA had a lot of exciting activities such as a camp fire at Ponggol view primary school, a hike at Coney island and a visit to the Singapore Maritime museum. This year we are looking forward to more fun and learning.
CCAs resumed with our open house at the end of August. Scouts CCA has attracted 25 primary school cub scout students to join so far this year.
Greetings to all the parents and students !
This new semester will post many interesting and positive directives for the school.
I have been officially instituted and assumed the Principalship of HWA. I am very honored to be able to carry out the progressive development phrases of the school, most important of all, to step-up the level of the nurturing our precious kids, academically and holistically.
