Sabbatical Week
During Term 3's 2010 Sabbatical Week, the Current Affairs team at Hwa Chong organized a newsroom simulation for participants of the Current Affairs Sabbatical. Students were divided into groups of 5, and each tasked with the demanding task of producing two newscasts on current affairs within the span of 48 hours, as well as the creation of a board game that aims to make Current Affairs fun and accessible to all.

The 4 groups - The Merlion's Mouth, Five Leaf Clover, N2 News Network, and SATEH competed fiercely to create their innovative newscasts, with N2 News Network coming out top. We are pleased to present each team's work here - please click on each of the panels to see their news reports on the following issues, and their concept for the Current Affairs board game.
