What Sets This School Apart

HWA is a bilingual and bicultural school; the emphasis is on character development, social-emotional balance and to be an enabler. The spirit of IB is constantly being nurtured and learning experience is built by the child to prepare to adapt to the new world.
Children are taught to participate in the outreach program organised by the CAS leader, there is no racial discrimination as practices in Singapore, a multi-racial society. HWA kids learn to create, raise funds and return back to society in their little way, no standard set, and no counter to measure, just give from the hearts.

-Clarissa Lim, Principal

School Culture
