Student Leaders’ Convention in Singapore
Wednesday, 25 June 2014
From 1 – 7 June four Year 11 students from Hutchins, Nick Welling, Ben Johnston, Will Scott and Liam Johnston, were involved in the Hwa Chong Institution’s 20th Student Leaders’ Convention in Singapore.
The focus for this year’s conference was to provide an engaging platform for student leaders to discuss the pertinent social issues concerning youths today. The theme was “Preserving our Past, Sustaining our Future”.
Two hundred student delegates from all over the Asia-Pacific region presented ideas and solutions to future, social and environmental issues. The Hutchins students spoke within the context of future trends and how society’s reliance on technology was impacting on the genuine nature of our social interactions. This conference was an outstanding learning experience for the students involved and we would encourage other students to consider attending in future years.
