The Convent of Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ) at Kellock is one of the eleven CHIJ schools in Singapore. In 1854, four nuns from France belonging to the order of the Infant Jesus, had come to Singapore for opening orphanages and schools. The CHIJ in Kellock Road was the last of the eleven convent schools wich was established by them in 1964. The convent school required more space since it was teaching new subjects especially technology related topics, so it relocated to its present location at 1, Bukit Theresa in 2002. In 2014, the convent school with only girl students celebrated its fiftieth anniversary.
