Hwa Chong Literary Fund
BOOKSOUL International is proud to be the initiator and first sponsor of the Hwa Chong Literary Fund and Talent @ Hwa Chong, both of which were launched on Janaury 19, 2006.
The Hwa Chong Literary Fund is a new fund created to encourage reading, writing and other literary activities among students at Hwa Chong Institution. It could be used, for example, to organise a nation-wide writing competition for students, or to help promising writers publish their original works.
Talent @ Hwa Chong is a specially created display section at Hwa Chong Institution's Jing Xian Library, which showcases the published works of Hwa Chong alumni.
George Tan, founder of BOOKSOUL International, is an alumni of Hwa Chong Junior College from the Class of 1975/76.
His two books, Soulprints I – BreakThrough and Benjamin Franklin – A bright spark! were added to Talent @ Hwa Chong on January 19, 2006.
Other authors whose works were featured include well-known Singapore writers like Warren Fernandez, Koh Buck Song, Claire Tham, Dr Liang Wern Fook, Dr Cherian George, Dr Quah Sy Ren, Chua Chim Kang, Lee Hui Leng and many more.
The former Hwa Chong Junior College, together with the former Chinese High School, now make up Hwa Chong Institution, one of Singapore's top institutions for secondary and pre-university education.
Hwa Chong Institution holds the distinction of having the highest number of President's Scholars, recipients of Singapore's highest scholarship award.
