Mother Mathilde Award

Mother Mathilde Raclot.png
Rev. Mother Mathilde Raclot is the foundress of Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ) in VIctoria Street. Being a woman with a vision and a deep sense of mission, she was instrumental in bringing education to girls in Asia and contributed to their growth and development in their God-given talents. She was recognised by the government of Singapore in the Women's Hall of Fame in 2014 for her contributions to education in Singapore. Today, the eleven CHIJ schools in Singapore stand as a testament to Mother Mathilde's work.

The Mother Mathilde Award is a pinnacle award given to a graduating student who has fulfilled the holistic criteria of the award, namely Academic Excellence, CCA Achievements, and Leadership and Service to the school and community.

The recipient of the Mother Mathilde Award should display the determination, tenacity and courage that Mother Mathilde had in establishing the first CHIJ school in Penang and Singapore. In emulating Mother Mathilde’s leadership qualities, the recipient should also exhibit the ability to optimise available resources, and think creatively to meet challenges and rise above adversities.
