Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Cultural Academy is established by the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan. It is founded based on 170 years of excellent foundation in education, especially in the preservation and promotion of Chinese Language and culture. Supported by the Singapore Government, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong first announced the plans at the 2012 National Day Rally. As Singapore’s first Chinese Cultural Academy, it will focus on promoting Chinese Language and proactively grow and preserve the traditional arts.
The Academy offers Chinese language, cultural and humanities programmes for toddlers, pre-schoolers, children, youths and adults.
Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan (SHHK) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1840. Her main objects are to preserve and promote Chinese language and culture; advance the cause of education; and contribute to social service. It manages 6 affiliated schools: Tao Nan School, Ai Tong School, Chongfu School, Nan Chiau Primary School, Nan Chiau High School and Kong Hwa School. It also operates and manages an arts and cultural troupe and a dance troupe. The opening of the Cultural Academy marks a new milestone for SHHK. Learn more >
Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan set up the Arts & Cultural Troupe (ACT) in 1986 with the objects to promote Chinese Cultural Arts.
In 1987, ACT started Singapore’s pioneer Mandarin “Children’s Speech & Drama” class which was a success story that received extensive press coverage and glowing testimonials from parents. To give outstanding students more training and learning opportunities, ACT set up the Children Performance Troupe and subsequently, the Dance and Youth Performance Troupes. Together, the troupes have under their belts several musical productions and public performances that received rave reviews.
In recent years, courses and programmes offered by ACT are not only available at its Toa Payoh campus, but also in schools. Her success stories have enticed kindergartens and schools to engage ACT to run programmes in their schools such as Speech & Drama, Calligraphy and Wushu. These programmes encourage and expose the young to the rich cultural heritage of the Chinese language.
