HCJC Alumni arranged a delivery of the collected gifts of appreciation to Tan Tock Seng Hospital's representatives on 13 March 2020 (Friday). It was a jolly meeting, with 12 Hwa Chong JC alumni working at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, specially turning up at the main entrance to greet the delivery team comprising Hwa Chong JC Alumni reps, retired biology teacher Mdm Yeo Ee Kuan, and two student reps from HCI 7th Students' National Education Council and their teacher i/c. We were glad to bring some light-hearted moments to our busy alumni at TTSH, and hope the gifts will bring some encouragement and smiles to healthcare workers at Tan Tock Seng Hospital! #hcappreciate #bighearts
