FORMER remisier Peter Lim has donated $2 million to Hwa Chong International School's (HCIS) scholarship fund, one of the largest donations he has made to a school so far.

Mr Lim, 58, whose teenage daughter has been studying in the school since the middle of last year, had told the school he liked the 'attitude change' in her since she enrolled because she has become more scholarship enthusiastic in her studies.
