Daybreak

Daybreak signals the time when daylight first appears and the start of a new day with new challenges. As Hwa Chong's illustrious first 100 years comes to a close, it is time for the next generation to continue the legacy of the school which the previous generation has worked so hard to forge for the last century. With Hwa Chong celebrating its centennial, the school now needs the brightest batch of young leaders to rise and build on the successes and values of the school's past and drive Hwa Chong forward to continued success in this modern age as the schools prepares to embrace the challenges of a new dawn.
