Our campus provides everything you need to make the most out of your academic and extracurricular learning experience.


House system
Our Houses

The four Houses of HWIS are Heracles, Wukong, Ixbalam, and Setna. They are at the core of HWIS, and this is a culture that all of us live by. We promote teamwork, good values, and citizenship by creating smaller communities within the larger community where students and teachers can strengthen bonds and connections.



Heracles

Strength, persistence, and might


Wukong

Cleverness, wit, and playfulness


Ixbalam

Courage, practice, and creativity


Setna

Wisdom, knowledge, and motivation

House Points

This is a system where Houses compete with one another through various ways of earning House Points. All Points earned will be totalled each semester, and the winning House (or Houses) will be rewarded. This greatly encourages all students to always do their best to honor their Houses.

The Box of Accolades (BOA)

This is a reward and recognition scheme built within the HWIS House Points system. A teacher may reward you for performing a task worthy of commendation with a prize ticket. There are seven types of tickets for students to collect, namely responsibility (R), excellence (E), service (S), persistence (P), enthusiasm (E), collaboration (C), and timeliness (T).


Extracurricular activities
Sports

Physical activities can boost your observational skills, improve your focus, and even help you develop the ability to improvise.

Art and music

In developing the full variety of human intelligence, art and music are fundamental ways to organize our understanding of the world, to acquire profound qualities of discipline and insight, and to establish a firm grounding in knowledge.

Field trips

Nothing beats an exciting hands-on learning experience. The magic of a field trip is not just about the academic subjects involved. It is the break-in routine and its adventurous moments that open young learners’ minds to new things.

Festivals

The greatness of a culture can be found in its festivals. We celebrate both eastern and western festivals by having special activities or performances to enjoy the spirit of these special holidays.

Youth volunteering

We passionately reach out to those who need our help and support. This improves our professional and interpersonal skills, and most importantly we learn how to play a positive role in society as mindful, selfless, and compassionate young citizens.
