As part of the SkillsFuture national movement, the Lifelong Learning Festival was held on 12 and 13 November 2016 at the Lifelong Learning Institute. The Guest-of-Honour for the festival was Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills), Mr Ong Ye Kung. 

The Lifelong Learning Festival is a celebration of lifelong learning through a series of activities such as talks and workshops. The festival aims to inspire the love for learning among the young and young at heart. As an affirmation of the school’s good work at the E-gnite! Learning Festival (supported by the LearnSG Seed Fund), the school was invited to showcase its electronics education efforts at the Lifelong Learning Festival.  

Staff and students engaged participants through booth and workshop activities. It is a meaningful learning experience as the school spread the love for electronics learning through the 2-days of learning.

Singapore Book of Records: Largest Collage Made from Electronic Waste (ELEHKS)

Hong Kah Secondary School celebrated yet another achievement in electronics education on 16 September 2016 by entering the Singapore Book of Records with the largest electronic waste collage.

Made from electronic elements donated by students, staff and our industry partner (Intel), the 2 m x 2 m collage features Elehks - the school's mascot for its Applied Learning Programme in Electronics. This achievement would not have been possible without the staunch support of Class 2E1 who rallied the school in the educational recycling effort as part of their Values-in-Action project.

Well done to Hong Kah Secondary School and friends!

Shell STEM Challenge 2015 – Top 4 in West Zone

6 of our outstanding Hong Kah Lites took part in the annual Shell STEM Challenge this year. The Challenge is a national event organised by the Science Centre Singapore, STEM Inc, supported by the Ministry of Education and Shell Singapore. The Challenge aims to raise students’ awareness about the environment, in particular renewable energy, sustainable materials, water and food. Students work in teams to develop a sustainable solution for an environmental challenge.

The Challenge that saw over 200 secondary school students take part, ended on Monday, 13 July 2015 as 16 finalist teams pitched their ideas to a panel of judges. Hong Kah Secondary School is proud to be one of the Top 4 finalists in the West Zone.

Our Hong Kah Lites did a project on the theme of “Food”. Extending their knowledge in electronics, we designed an Arduino-programmed solution to reduce food wastage. We created an automated food storage counter to alert families about their soon to expire canned food, so that families can consume the food before the expiry dates. The students’ project is featured on Science Centre’s website. Check out our story here.
