My fellow ProEdians
Welcome to Hwa Chong and to the ProEd family!
Dear ProEd gentlemen,
There are many exciting and challenging experiences that await you in your six years in Hwa Chong Institution.
ProEd Consortium is privileged to be your guide and mentor for the first four years of your time in HCI. During this time, you will taste success as well as failure, privilege as well as privation, joy as well as tears. You will learn to be led, and then learn to lead others. You will learn to practice the principle of 修身、齐家、治国、平天下and you will grow holistically in the areas of 德， 智 ，体， 群， 美.
We hope that before you graduate, you will grow to love the principles by which Hwa Chong prides itself on, that自 强 不 息will be your motto in life, that己 立 立 人, 己 达 达 人will be your philosophy when working with others and, perhaps most importantly, that you will uphold the value of 饮 水 思 源and remember to serve your alma mater, HCI, when you have graduated and become a contributing member of society.
I wish you the very best in your journey and I look forward to the day when I can shake the hand of the scholar, leader and gentleman that you have become.

Director / ProEd Consortium
We stand poised at a turning point in history as we enter the new millennium with unprecedented challenges. Technology and intellectual capacity remain integral to overcoming these key challenges; thus, a strategic response in education must be effected, with an emphasis that is not only solely focused on academic achievement but also on developing, to the fullest capacity, the full spectrum of talents and abilities of every pupil.
The process-centred and value-oriented approach of our consortium allows it to equip every pupil with the necessary skills and values, thus empowering them to follow their unique talents and abilities wherever they may take them. We strive to equip our students with process skills above and beyond the content knowledge of the school syllabus, set in a traditionally rooted framework of a set of core values.
Thus, as our students traverse their challenges toward the storied stage of success our school strives for them, their journeys will both mould and define the gentlemen they grow to become. At ProEd, we seek to develop this journey.
