Katong Convent Official Opening

Saturday, 24 March 2018

In 1988, then first Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Goh Chok Tong opened CHIJ Katong Convent when she moved from Martia Road to Marine Terrace. On 24 March 2018, 30 years later, Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong graced us with his presence yet again as he opened the new campus at Marine Terrace. It was a time to rekindle old memories and all the heritage and tradition that makes KC who she is, even while we celebrated the successes of our students in the showcasing of our Communicative, Performing, and Visual Arts (CPVA) edge as well as the achievements of our 2017 graduates. 

To bloom where one is planted, a gardener must have the critical eye to spy what a little seedling possesses, so that she can nurture the plant with trellises of support, the fertiliser of love, and water it with prayers.  Yet, the gardener cannot do it alone, and the KC village is a family of gardeners who see the strengths and gifts of the girls and grow them into contributing women of grace and distinction for the nation.
