CATHOLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE ANNUAL 2016 • IN VERITATE ET CARITATE

COLLEGE CREST The principal symbol of Catholic Junior College (CJC) is the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God, depicted by the dove, guides the College in every word, thought and deed. The Spirit helps keep Christ alive, symbolised by the cross, in the CJC community so that we act ‘In Truth and Love’, in and beyond the College. The college motto, In Veritate et Caritate (‘In Truth and Love’), speaks of our mission to nurture students who will be thinkers and leaders that uphold integrity, and are driven by the desire to serve and improve the world around them. The College Flame reinforces the idea that the light of God, knowledge and wisdom must lead the way in doing that. The Crest, in the shape of a shield, depicts the armour needed to guard ourselves from what is contrary to God’s ways. It is clad in gold to signify how we treasure the College’s Catholic identity and to remind us of the pursuit of excellence in learning and living.

VISION CJC - a place of excellence in learning and living. • • •

Excellence - Striving for high standards in educating young people. Learning - Enabling students to realise their potential academically, physically and spiritually. Living - Forming a person who is well-integrated into society.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE As we look retrospectively at 2016, CJC is filled with gratitude for the support and contributions of the CJC community. The collaboration between the college staff and students with the School Management Committee and the Parent Support Group has over time presented a strong and unique CJC culture that is discernible to visitors of the college. We thank God for our students who keep the community vibrant and who show their grit and diligence in pursuing academic excellence, servant leadership and excellence in both the sporting arena and the performing arts scene. Similarly, the staff of CJC have excelled by harnessing their creativity to apply new pedagogical approaches to both the Science and the Humanities courses and by upholding the college values and mission tenaciously and passionately. We are deeply grateful to the Parent Support Group and the alumni of CJC. The prayers, love and generosity of time and effort for all our endeavours, from the snack nights to the varied college events, are truly valued and appreciated. The care for the students and the single-minded drive for the infrastructural development of the college underscore the strong loyalty and commitment that prevail as CJC works relentlessly to be a place of excellence in learning and living. It has been a fulfilling year for the CJC community and we pray that CJC grows from strength to strength and the students strive to be the Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart. God bless. In Veritate et Caritate. Mrs Christine Kong Principal

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

MESSAGE BY GERARD LEE CHAIRMAN OF CJC SCHOOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE 2009-2016 I joined CJC in 1976 (2nd batch) after my ‘O’ levels in Montfort Secondary School. I remember looking forward to the first day of school as there were students coming from more than a dozen other feeder schools. It was also the first time I was going to be in a co-ed environment. In addition, attending the third JC in Singapore was a novelty. In the years that followed, I increasingly believed that CJC alumni could contribute much to the college. The opportunity to serve CJC as an alumnus finally presented itself in 1999 when the late Chairman of CJC’s School Management Committee, Mr Bernard Chen, invited me and Pauline Goh, from the pioneer batch, to sit on the college board – it was the first time in CJC’s history that alumni got onto the board. Our objective was quite straight forward – to improve the academic standing of the college. By so doing, the underlying Christian mission of the college could shine forth. As a Catholic school, it is not our principle to embrace pure academic ranking as certain aspects of it do not sit well with our Christian values. Nevertheless, the Board and leadership of the college recognized the need to improve academically and, over the last 17 years, CJC has undergone quite a transformation. Our cut-off point for JC1 students for L1R5 (the aggregate points for 6 subjects) improved from the high teens to 10 points for both the Arts and the Science streams. The JC journey is a short one, and in the 20 months or so that the students are with us, we strive not only to form their conscience in accordance with Christian values but also to give each one an opportunity to encounter God. This aspiration has been translated into a mission statement – Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart (TMLH). TMLH personifies the ideal product of CJC, a student who pursues knowledge for the service of others, in line with our motto of Truth and Love. Other than a lower L1R5, notable academic achievements were the introduction of English Language and Linguistics (ELL) and the Ignite Programme. CJC was one of 3 JCs invited by MOE to offer ELL as a Centre for the English Language Elective Programme. The Ignite Programme is a course modeled after the stretch programmes of the local universities, such as the University Scholars Programme at NUS. Ignite students are groomed to be self-directed learners, a skill that prepares them well for the future economy. Most recently, our efforts have been rewarded when MOE awarded the college with the highest level of organisational excellence in this year’s external validation exercise – the School Distinction Award. What is most gratifying is the feedback from the assessors. While some other schools also received the SDA, they noted that CJC has done so with a very deep sense of mission and strong stewardship demonstrated by the whole community. Other highlights of the last 17 years include: –

The change of the college crest and flag

The building of the college chapel

A very active alumni body, including an all-alumni Board

A much-improved study culture as seen by the many students who stay back to study in the evening.

Our consistent commitment to Christian values has put us in good stead to prepare students for a world where academic achievement is not a sure recipe for success. I look forward to the day when our alumni will send their children to their alma mater in large numbers. When that happens, it will be a testimony that we have done well. It has been a lovely and satisfying journey and I thank God for allowing me the chance to contribute and to lead.

CJC owes much to Sister Deirdre as she was one of our pioneers who created its infrastructure. The CJC Library was Sister D’s creation and she was a pioneer in the setting up of school libraries in Singapore. She chose the Dewey Classification System because

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS

OUR STARS URBAN PLANNERS A team of ten passionate geography students from CJC won the top prize, together with RI and HCI, in the prestigious annual Challenge for the Built Environment (CUBE) jointly organized and facilitated by both the URA and the Department of Architecture, NUS. During the four day workshop cum competition, students were given an unprecedented opportunity to be urban planners, to develop innovative and insightful plans for a redeveloped Paya Lebar. Our students visited Kerinci in Indonesia, the heart of APRIL’s operations, as one of the prizes for their winning entry. They gained valuable geographical insights as the APRIL Group is one of the largest makers of pulp and paper products in the world and one of their flagship products is PaperOne office paper. The CJC team comprised John Soh (2T03), Nicholas Wong Zi Jie (2T03), Muhammad Zal Hazmi B Md Shahrin (2T03), Koh Yuan Hao Timothy (2T03), Royce Tan Hwee Han (2T03), Cheng Wan Yee Claudia (2T03), Gu Yuntian (2T08), Lee Ryan (2T01), Seoh Zheng Loong Aloysius (2T30) and Clarice Boo Yin Teng (2T01).

HISTORIC WIN IN TRACK AND FIELD The CJC Track and Field team wrapped up the 2016 National Schools ‘A’ Division Championship with the first sprint double gold in CJC history. Shahmee Ruzain(1T09) is the first CJCian (1T09) to win the gold medal in both the competitive 100m and 200m sprint events, pressing on despite a tweaked hamstring in the midst of the sprint. The Track and Field team also bagged other individual and team awards. Brian Loh (1T29) won a silver medal in the discus event, in an impressive feat of strength. The 4x100m Boys relay team also saw CJC’s return to the podium after an absence of 4 years, winning a silver-medal finish in the competitive ‘A’ Division finals. The team comprised Shahmee Ruzain (1T09), Alphonsus Teow (1T26), Chow Kin Wei (2T23) and Ben Kwok (2T02).

The Rugby team, CJ Bulldogs, fought hard to capture the Plate Championship since 2008, marking this as CJC’s third Plate title. It was the outcome of the team’s commitment to discipline, hard work and determination to win.

Chinese Drama made history by clinching the Certificate of Distinction for their play <Meow!> at the 2016 Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation. The president of the society, Ong Xin Hui (2T18) co-wrote the original script together with the coach, Madam Ng Gek Hong. The play dwells on challenges faced by youths today and centres on a young girl whose need for emotional security compels her to adopt the persona of a cat.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Holistic student development is key to the CJC experience. Together with our rigorous academic programme, the Student Development (SD) Programme aims to develop the mind, body and spirit of every CJCian to become a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart. The SD Programme adopts a multi-dimensional approach to personal, character and leadership formation. It begins with helping students discover and strengthen their talents, build meaningful relationships and finally to be equipped to make a positive change to the community and the world around them. The facets that make up the Student Development Programme are the Home Tutorial System, the SD curriculum, ethics & religion, potential development, leadership development and service learning. Together, these programmes use the social change model which brings CJCians through a widening spiral of growth from the self to the community, developing each student as a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart. Home Tutorial System Every CJCian is part of a home tutorial (HT) group which is the basic unit designed to give them a sense of belonging over their 2 year CJC experience. Under the mentorship of a home tutor, each HT group journeys together, building strong bonds of friendship. The HT system supports and challenges each person to grow to become the best versions of themselves possible. Every HT group is part of a larger house system, under the leadership of teachers as house masters and student leaders as house captains to build team, house and community support and spirit. SD Curriculum CJC students attend weekly sessions within their home tutorial groups, or religion groups. These sessions serve as part of the holistic development programme which enables students to discover the connections between self, community and the world. Sessions in the programme focus on character and values formation, personal leadership skills, citizenship education, sexuality education, and religious and moral education.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME The two-year SD Curriculum Programme begins with allowing students to understand and develop themselves as all-rounded individuals, followed by an extended focus on building and managing interpersonal relationships and finally, allowing them to understand the positive impact they can have on the wider community. Besides classroom sessions with their home tutors, SD Curriculum lessons include interactive sessions with distinguished guest speakers who are experts in various fields, providing platforms for students to be challenged in their perspectives and perceptions of complex societal issues and to prepare themselves for the deliberate contemplation of making moral decisions. As part of our efforts to develop active and concerned citizens, the JC2 students engaged in a dialogue session with Permanent Secretary Ms Low Yen Ling regarding issues related to education, employment and the economy, while the JC1 students engaged in a dialogue session with Permanent Secretary Mr Ng Chee Khern about health, defence and governance issues. CJCians today also contribute actively towards nation building through various fund-raising projects during the annual Rockafella concert for the Needy Students Fund and the annual National Day fund-raising activities for beneficiaries such as the Assisi Hospice and the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cancer Foundation. As part of the sexuality education programme, relationship modules build on having students recognise that they are special, blessed with unique talents and gifts; and just as they are able to bestow love, they are also worthy of receiving love in a respectful and healthy manner. In JC 2, students continue to look within themselves by going through a series of lessons which focuses on making moral decisions with the understanding of how their decisions can affect the community. The series of moral decision making lessons aims to equip JC 2 students with critical thinking skills while getting them to be strongly rooted in sound values. These sessions include topics such as Bioethics in the area of euthanasia and abortion, and the ethical use of science and technology. The final module in the JC 2 SD curriculum allows students to consider their own mission in life and how they would like to impact their society. One unique feature of SD curriculum lessons is the use of circle time, which provides a safe environment for students to share their deep reflections with their peers, as well as the teacher facilitators. This pedagogy enhances better teacher-student relationships and promotes more open sharing within the class. To ensure more student-ownership of the SD lessons as well as in support of leadership development in the college, class management committee members, such as the Assistant Home Tutorial Councillor (AHTC) and the Pastoral Care Councillor (PCC), are also trained to conduct selected SD lessons for their class with the guidance and support from their home tutors. Our Religious Education Programme caters for all Catholics and students who are interested in finding out more about the Catholic faith. As part of the Religious Education Programme, retreats are held at the start of JC1 and the end of JC2. Students of all faiths attend these retreats which provide time away for students to centre their thoughts and feelings, and to journey inward to make meaning of their lives and gain support from one another and the wider CJC community.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Potential Development The Potential Development Programme aims to help our students identify career and education goals based on sound values and their strengths and interests, so that they may contribute meaningfully towards society. The programme provides opportunities for students to reflect on their goals and aspirations with the help of their teachers, as well as real-world experience and interaction with institutes of higher learning, and industry experts & leaders. In 2016, this journey began during Matriculation Week when students completed a career-profiling test and matched it with university entry requirements to find out more about where their future career possibilities may lie. This was followed by our annual Future-Ready Singapore Panel Discussion which saw key personnel from Ministry of Health Holdings and Singapore National Co-operative Federation share about how their organizations have acted in the face of key challenges and contributed towards helping Singapore develop its future-readiness. In the process, students were able to better understand what the current VUCA world means for them and the attitudes and skills they require as they enter higher education and the workforce. The journey continued in May, when we had our annual Think Career and Higher Education Festival, which saw the participation of 30 education and careers booths, as well as close to 50 professionals from 18 different industries, ranging from traditional industries such as banking to newer industries such as technopreneurship. Speakers shared on the importance of taking ownership in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future and how they discovered their path towards their chosen career, as well as the passion for and challenges in their area of work. We also continued with our annual JC1 Work Attachment and Shadowing Programme which provided our students an authentic learning experience and the opportunity to gain soft skills such as personal statement and resume writing, interview and work etiquette skills. We thank the parents, alumni and partners who have contributed towards the Future-Ready CJCian.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Leadership Development Leadership development is an important feature of the SD Programme to develop leaders at various tiers – Home Tutorial Groups (Class Management Committee), Co-Curricular Activities and the House System. Students are provided with opportunities for leadership development and training that are anchored on the goal of developing every CJCian to be a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart (TMLH). Training and mentorship are provided to help our leaders grow in the seven CJC TMLH attributes – integrity, discernment, resilience, initiative, humility, purpose and being nurturing – through programmes such as the Class Management Committee Workshop, the Leadership Training Camp and the various leadership conferences. These programmes involve support from both teachers and alumni. In addition, more consistent reflection and mentoring of student leaders were seen this year through the usage of the TMLH Development Tool, which provided a platform for students and teacher mentors to reflect on and chart the students’ leadership growth. Besides providing in-house training programmes, our students are given opportunities to sign up for development opportunities held in the November-December period that take them out of the classroom and stretch them in various ways. One of these signature programmes is the Overseas Service Learning Programme (OSLP). This year, 169 students participated in OSLP trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and the

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Philippines. Students engaged in various projects to better the lives of the beneficiaries such as through building projects and teaching in local schools. Through serving the wider community beyond the shores of Singapore, our students developed a keen awareness of the needs of the local community and learnt to think more deeply and critically about the underlying issues that their beneficiaries face. CJC also partners industry leader, Outward Bound Singapore (OBS), to build character and leadership qualities through safe, effective and high impact adventure education programmes. Such programmes take students out of their comfort zone and help to develop them to be more resilient individuals through experiencing and surmounting various physical and mental challenges. This year, 59 students participated in the OBS global leadership programmes such as OBS Hong Kong and sailing to the Riau Islands. Such programmes have allowed our students to develop an adventurous and enterprising spirit and the service learning component of the trip also gave them an international perspective of the different cultures and socio-economic situations in countries other than Singapore. Through participating in the OSLP and the OBS programmes, our students developed greater empathy for the less fortunate members of the global community and a deeper understanding of regional and global issues. In addition, they grew to become more socially responsible citizens with a deeper sense of mission to enact positive change and contribute meaningfully to the community long after they returned to Singapore.

THE CJC IGNITE PROGRAMME THINKER WITH A MISSION, LEADER WITH A HEART The CJC Ignite Programme was started in 2012 to develop students to be a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart (TMLH). As a programme that uses Seminar Style Teaching, Concept Based Instruction and Integral Pedagogy, it was a courageous and forward looking endeavour at that time. The success of the CJC Ignite Programme has resulted in Channel News Asia featuring it in 2016 as an example of innovative and effective programmes in JCs. Learning in the Ignite Programme is not only confined to the classroom. Students have the opportunity to learn in a residential setting at NUS UTown and to attend various conferences, such as the S Rajaratnam Lecture organised by the MFA Diplomatic Academy, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy Panel Discussion, the Institute of Policy Studies-Nathan Lectures and the Ho Rih Hwa Leadership in Asia Public Lecture Series organised by SMU. Students continued to provide overwhelmingly positive feedback on the way they learn. They reflected that they learn at a deep conceptual level and are more engaged in their learning. The Ignite classes (2014/15) once again performed exceptionally well in their’ A’ level examinations. All three classes of 2T32, 2T33 and 2T34 were among the 10 best performing classes. 2T32, who were not the top class based on L1R5, managed to excel beyond their potential by becoming the best performing class for the ‘A’ level examination in CJC. A proportionately large group of CJC Ignite students obtained excellent results that allowed them to be eligible to apply for scholarships and their desired university courses. Some of them even obtained distinctions in all their ‘A’ level subjects.

IGNITE PROGRAMME

THE CJC IGNITE PROGRAMME Students from the Ignite classes continued to be TMLH by not only excelling in their studies but by reaching out to and serving the community as well. The service learning projects of 2T28 and 2T29 (2015/16) were recognised and duly affirmed by external organisations. With their community building project, 2T28 achieved the HDB Advanced Heartland Ambassadors Certificate of Achievement. For their utmost efforts in serving the community and youth development within the South-East District, Vincent Wise, Matsutake Teppei and James Ong from 2T29 (2015/16) were awarded the South-East District Youth Community Leadership Award. This award recognises outstanding youths who show excellent commitment and dedication in youth activities, and initiate outstanding youth projects or activities that make a meaningful and extraordinary impact in the youth arena and for the community. The effectiveness of the programme has given teachers and departments confidence to adopt a similar approach in other non-Ignite classes. Importantly, the implementation of the Ignite approach in all the Humanities classes in 2016 is testimony of its success and the confidence the College has in the Ignite Programme.

STUDENT COUNCIL

41ST STUDENT COUNCIL The vision of the Student Council is to be servant leaders, and to serve the college community, in truth and love. We envision to make CJC not only a school for all of us to study in, but a second home for this family to grow and enjoy together as one, upholding the legacy of those who made CJC what it is today. This year, working together with 50 Orientation Group Leaders, the new JC1 cohort was assimilated into the CJC family, spirit, and culture through our Orientation 2016: Synergia. We organised a series of activities over a period of four days for the JC1 students to learn more about the college and its culture. We also executed Ablaze 2016, the annual event where we encourage the college to support the CCA groups in their preparation for their ‘A’ Division and SYF competitions through heartfelt letters of encouragement and the celebration of achievements. Catholic Activities (CA) Wing The 2016 Catholic Activities Wing’s motto is to Serve the College through Spirituality. The wing is made up of passionate individuals who want to serve the college through spiritual development. We carry out many events and allow our community to center themselves in faith, love, and hope regardless of religion. Through our events, we hope to allow every member of the community to have a better understanding of themselves as a person and to develop their spiritual qualities. The CA Wing has organised morning masses, masses for special occasions such as Ash Wednesday, and adoration sessions for the community to offer up their prayers to God. These sessions held in the college chapel welcome every single CJCian, irrespective of religion and belief. On 22 March, the 41st Student Council’s Catholic Activities Wing organised our very original Passion Play during a Student Development Religion session. In addition to our Faith Formation project, we set up a Holy Week booth where we provided a platform for the community to write prayers during the month of Lent. These prayers were then offered up during masses on Fridays. Following that, we provided encouragement cards for the community to allow everyone to write personal messages to affirm each other.

41ST STUDENT COUNCIL Furthermore, after many months of planning and effort, the CA Wing led the entire college in a momentous event for students to give thanks and express their gratitude to their hard-working, committed teachers during the 2016 Teachers’ Day Celebration. It was centred around the theme ‘Wind Beneath Our Wings’, and we highlighted the idea of teachers being the driving force that enables students to achieve their dreams. Community Involvement (CI) Wing The Community Involvement Wing is made up of committed individuals binding the CJC community together, forming the bridge between the student body and the school staff, so as to bring out the best in everyone and enhance their individual strengths. Our Vision is to be nurturing leaders who serve with humility, lead with integrity, and fully commit to our duties. In January, we planned and executed Open House 2016. Our aim was to showcase the vibrancy of the CJ community to the public, in the hope that they would fall in love with CJ’s culture and join us. Open House 2016 required a lot of preparation, and throughout the arduous journey, we overcame many obstacles and the end result was phenomenal. Shortly after Open House 2016, we had our next event, CCA Bazaar 2016. This event was a less formal platform where seniors could interact with their juniors, mainly to showcase the various CCAs. Another event planned by the CI Wing was the Sonobe Exchange Programme when students from Sonobe High in Kyoto visited the college. The CI Wing worked hand-in-hand with various groups within the college to ensure that we hosted the visitors graciously and warmly while portraying the best image of the college. The visitors got to experience the local culture and also local food and snacks, allowing them to learn more about the Singaporean culture. The CI Wing also organized the Student Leaders’ Dialogue, which was for the purpose of giving the student leaders a chance to represent their CCA in a dialogue session with our principal, Mrs Christine Kong. This event was to address key issues that CJC is facing and to allow student leaders to have a voice in school-wide matters. Student Activities (SA) Wing The Student Activities Wing organises two signature events, Graduation Night and Rockafella, that add colour to CJC’s culture. Our primary objective is to increase the vibrancy of life in CJC and to build a greater sense of belonging to the college community. Rockafella is CJC’s annual rock concert, a platform where CJCians showcase their musical talents. With incredible performances, and an overwhelming turnout, Rockafella XII: Rhythms Intensify, which took place in April 2016, was a memorable night when students were able to take a break from their busy curriculum. Equipped with funky spotlights and state-of-the-art speakers, Rockafella is an exhilarating event not to be missed. Official merchandise was also up for grabs for students to purchase and keep as memorabilia. The highlight of every batch has to be Graduation Night, a tradition of the college that is not to be missed. We saw our seniors dressed up in their suave suits and glamorous gowns, which fitted the theme “Broadway, the Stage is Yours”. With fun games, prizes, entertaining music and great company, it was truly a night to remember for both the graduating class of 2016, as well as their teachers. As the Student Activities Wing, we hope we have achieved our goal of building a stronger school spirit and forging a stronger bond between the students and the college during our term of service. In this short yet eventful year, we believe we have played a part in creating memorable experiences that CJCians will remember for a lifetime.

SERVING AND ADVENTURING BEYOND: OSLP AND OBS In Catholic Junior College, our students are called to be a Thinker with a Mission and Leader with a Heart. Every year, we invite our students to sign up for programmes designed to stretch them. Held during the November-December period, these programmes allow our students to surmount physical and mental challenges through serving communities within South-east Asia and beyond. One of these signature programmes is the Overseas Service Learning Programme (OSLP). This year, 169 students participated in OSLP trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines. They engaged in projects to better the lives of the beneficiaries in their own small ways. In the process of serving the wider community beyond the shores of Singapore, our students learn to think about the underlying issues regarding the challenges that their beneficiaries face so that they can develop a sense of mission to enact positive change around them long after they return to Singapore. The students who went for OSLP Philippines helped the Gawad Kalinga communities in the city of Muntinlupa, believing that meeting their material needs would be merely temporal, and that empowering the villagers with a lasting sense of dignity and ownership would be more enduring. OSLP Cambodia participants carried out service learning projects at the Tbeng Village in Siem Reap, helping with the construction of water pumps and toilets, and conducting lessons for the children in Tbeng Primary School. In Vietnam, the students went to Mai Chau Valley, donating

All these service learning projects enable our students to develop a keen awareness of the needs of the local communities, as well as values such as resilience, initiative and adaptability in improvising when plans went awry. Besides the OSLP, CJC partners Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) in building our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; character and leadership qualities through safe, effective and high impact adventure education programmes, which also include a service learning component. 59 students went for the Outward Bound Hong Kong (OBHK) expedition and an Outward Bound Sailing expedition to the Riau Islands. OBHK comprised a 5-day trekking course, a 4-day sailing course and a 1-day service learning project. The service learning project was in conjunction with Fu Hong Society at the Shun Lee Adult Training Cenre, an organisation which provides services for persons with intellectual and physical disabilities. The students learned to be more responsible and compassionate as they interacted with the beneficiaries of Fu Hong Society.

This interaction gave our students greater social awareness and a deeper understanding of the importance of considering other people’s needs and challenges.Through our students’ participation in OSLP and the OBS Global Leadership Programme, they develop greater empathy for the less fortunate members of the global community and a deeper understanding of regional and global issues. In addition, they develop the qualities of integrity, discernment, initiative, resilience, humility, purpose and being nurturing that will enable them to make a positive change in the community within and beyond Singapore.

LOCAL SERVICE LEARNING PROGRAMME The Local Service Learning Programme (LSLP) is a key programme for all JC1 students in CJC. It aims to develop the passion and duty within students to serve others and to improve the community. In so doing, we hope also for the students to develop a sense of belonging to our country and also to be more aware of their personal strengths and weaknesses. Each JC1 class spends a lesson exploring what causes or world problems each student personally feels for, be it poverty, hunger, minority rights or issues surrounding aging. Students then attend a session with speakers from various NGOs, forming a panel to share about real-world issues and the solutions that the NGOs have implemented. This is followed by the annual SLP fair where close to twenty local Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) sent representatives to set up information booths within the college. The students had the opportunity to converse with long-term volunteers to discover what it is like to help and serve in different areas. Thereafter, students reconvene in class to discuss which VWO they may wish to collaborate with, based on their areas of interest and relevant abilities. Under the guidance of their Home Tutors, students plan meaningful activities for their beneficiaries. In doing so, they do not merely embark on an ad-hoc project, but experience the full process of understanding the needs of the beneficiaries, as well as the social issues involved. Their programmes are then designed with three main principles in mind: impact on the wider community, the potential for deep learning, and opportunities for sustained action and continuity. Many of the VWOs that our students eventually chose to serve are long-term partners of CJC. They include the Archdiocesan Commission for the Pastoral Care of Migrants & Itinerant People, Assisi Hospice, Food from the Heart and Very Special Arts. We look forward to having our students help and contribute to the community in more areas and for them to eventually develop the desire and initiative to source for their own areas of service to society.

ELL REACH CASTLE IMMERSION PROGRAMME

March 7-18

March is always an exciting month for the English Language and linguistics (ELL) students, as they have the wonderful opportunity to go to England for their annual Reach Castle programme. The two weeks spent there were not only memorable for the students, but were academically and culturally enriching as well. Being able to learn more about Linguistics in the country which gave birth to the English language was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the JC2 ELL students. Not only were the topics covered relevant to the A level examinations, they were also insightful and eye-opening, as the students gained valuable knowledge regarding other aspects of Linguistics beyond their syllabus. The lecturers, who were experts in Linguistics, helped to reinforce the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; understanding of certain concepts that they learnt in school, such as language change and variation, as well as new topics such as psycholinguistics. Their learning was not only limited to the four walls of their classroom in Cambridge. The students also ventured out to the streets of Cambridge for the highlight of their academic programme - the fieldwork. In teams, they went to various parts of the city centre, to gather

linguistic data for their research project by interviewing the various residents of and visitors to Cambridge. Back at the classroom, each group then analysed their recordings, looking out for specific linguistic features. The programme was filled with experiences which exposed the students to British culture as well. There were visits to the British Museum in London, the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford, and the birth place of William Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon. Another highlight of the programme comprised visits to two schools, Norwich School in Norwich and East London Science School in London. Our ELL students interacted with the British students, attending their lessons and a debate. In addition, our students gave a presentation on Singapore, Singlish, and our college, CJC. At the end of the programme, the students received certificates, which marked the end of the fruitful and unforgettable twelve days that they had spent in England.

SUZHOU SCIENCE IMMERSION PROGRAMME

November 11-16

In mid-November, a group of 12 students and 2 teachers journeyed to Suzhou and Shanghai to participate in CJC’s yearly Suzhou Science Immersion Programme in collaboration with the National University of Singapore Suzhou Research Institute (NUSRI). We were privileged to be given the chance to learn about science and its translation into industry and research, as well as the various cultural aspects of working in China. We were humbled by the immense wealth of the knowledge that was shared with us by our lecturers and tour guides. Our learning experiences ranged from visiting the various cultural centres around Suzhou, learning more about the application of chemistry, biology and economics in each of these centres. At the DNA Learning Centre (Asia) we had a hands-on session with the ‘Blueprint of Life’ as we performed actual DNA transformation in bacteria with spectacular results! We also learned more about economics and its impact on various areas of the economy as we visited the Suzhou industrial park and had dialogues with the industrial park’s development board. We were introduced to cutting edge breakthroughs such as the ingenuity of “nanobubbles”. In addition to the academic programme, a student-led service learning programme was conducted at a nursing home. As we folded our origami cranes with the elderly, we grew in empathy as they shared their life experiences and stories with us, showing us how to care for them through the company and love they desired and deserved. The entire programme was indeed a most memorable and enlightening experience.

HONG KONG UNIVERSITY IMMERSION PROGRAMME November 12-20 The Hong Kong University (HKU) trip was a phenomenal experience. Through the lectures and learning journeys, we were exposed to a plethora of topics such as transportation, housing, globalisation, and social corporate responsibility. These are issues that deeply impact both Hong Kong and Singapore. This enriching nine-day journey allowed us to see things in a different light and broadened our exposure beyond our curriculum. A trip to the Hong Kong History Museum and the Hong Kong Heritage Trail gave us a visual throwback to colonial history. We dived deeper into Hong Kong’s rich history and learnt to appreciate the art of their traditional architectural designs. We had a fascinating time learning about four million years of Hong Kong’s history and artefacts. The visits allowed us to see the progress and development of Hong Kong— from an undeveloped city in the Qin dynasty (221–206 BC) to today’s bustling metropolis. The visit to Dialogue in the Dark was definitely a favourite among many of us. We experienced a day in the shoes of a visually impaired person, and it has truly allowed us to appreciate the everyday things we often take for granted. Our walk in the dark included navigating through a forest, crossing roads, and shopping at a market; we utilised our sense of touch, hearing, and smell to navigate our way through the darkness. After a full day of learning, we never failed to end the day with a group reflection session where we shared our takeaways. Our individual sharings have indeed allowed us to learn more about each other (they were ideal bonding sessions). This trip was definitely one with lasting memories. With friendships made, memories forged and lessons learnt, we left Singapore with some, but returned with more.

HARVARD MODEL CONGRESS ASIA

January 7-10

At the Harvard Model Congress Asia (HMCA) 2016 held in Seoul, South Korea, CJC’s team of 11 delegates was thoroughly immersed in an overseas Model United Nations (MUN) Conference, enriching their scope of experience in the field of diplomacy and international law. Benjamin Liow (2T01) was conferred the Honourable Mention Award. Delegates were tasked with re-enacting the global stage of politics, representing various countries and non-governmental agencies, and were given the special opportunity of assuming roles in the World Court and the American Congress. They were also given the rare chance to play a variety of roles, including a prosecutor in court, a major defense witness and a jury member deciding the fate of a Taliban leader. While immersed in these roles, delegates debated over contentious issues, such as the MERS Crisis and the Arab Spring within their councils, combining their efforts with hundreds of other foreign delegates to innovate resolutions from the insights being discussed. The conference tested delegates’ public speaking abilities, their understanding of the United Nations’ mechanisms, as well as issue-specific knowledge garnered through individual research. The HMCA is distinctive not just in its intellectual challenge and rigour, but also in its procedural norms and execution of the conference, leaving an indelible impact on our students. HCMA provided an organic atmosphere to the MUN. With no convenient access to technology, the team communicated with other delegates solely on a face-to-face basis. This made for an enlightening and engaging experience ringing true to the original spirit of MUN.

CJC OPEN HOUSE

January 13

“Ignite. Illuminate. Inspire.” The theme for this year’s Open House was an apt representation of CJC’s warm and convivial spirit, much like the flame, the college logo. On the day of our annual Open House, we shared this spirit with the community as we opened our gates to throngs of recently graduated Secondary Four students along with their parents, interested to experience the CJC hospitality for themselves. Enthusiastic teachers and student leaders greeted our visitors as they entered the college and gave them unique CJC tote bags with gifts inside, the atmosphere brightened by the voices of the CJC Choir. The visitors, students and parents alike, were given a thorough tour of the college campus by our Orientation Group Leaders (OGLs) and Student Councillors. Several programmes were carried out to allow our visitors to experience briefly what being a CJC student entails. One of such programmes comprised the subject consultations carried out in the Auditorium, where our teachers readily answered queries about various subjects. Three sessions of the Principal’s Conversation were held at the library and they outlined the Student Development focus of CJC as the Principal, Mrs Christine Kong, held a dialogue with the visitors that day, comprising a 20-minute long speech and a Question-and-Answer session. Furthermore, micro-lessons for the various Science and Humanities subjects, like Biology, Economics, Geography, English Language and Linguistics and Physics, were carried out by teachers to give the prospective students an example of a typical lesson they would experience in CJC. Other areas of interest were the CCA booths. Visitors were also treated to the college’s vibrant culture through the array of performances that were showcased throughout the day in the Piazza and the foyer.

JC1 Orientation

January 29 - February 3

Synergia was the core theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orientation, the goal being to help the new JC1 students be part of one big CJC family, a community much larger than their individual selves. The first day was filled with introductions and ice-breaker games. The tribes: Dorus, Ion, Achaeus and Aeolus held their tribe sessions in which they taught the J1s thunderous cheers and left them in high spirits. Within the orientation groups (OGs), games such as Whacko and Tangled were played so as to get everyone familiarized with each other. The day ended with a talk by the Vice- Principal, Mr Tan Jek Suan, followed by a series of informative talks by subject tutors. When the J1s came back on Monday, they were treated to intra-tribe games that were spread out throughout the school campus. The mandatory orientation dance was greatly enjoyed by everyone as the students had nearly completed learning the dance routine. The third day of orientation saw many joyful faces as the J1s set out for Gardens by the Bay for a new day of fun and activities. On the last day of orientation, there was an exciting line up of events for the J1s. There was a final dance practice and tribe session filled with cheer practice before the grand finale. The highlight of the day was the wet games during which all the J1s including the OGLs let loose and splashed each other with child-like glee. The last bonding session within the orientation groups was CJCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own Student Development (SD) session during which each individual shared about themselves. The Orientation Programme ended with the grand finale with reverberating cheers, energetic dancing and entertaining skits.

CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION

February 5

CJC celebrated Chinese New Year as a multi-racial community, by appreciating not just the culture and traditions of the Chinese but those of other races as well. The celebration also served as valuable class bonding time, especially for the J1s as they had first gathered in their classes only the day before. Morning assembly was held at the Auditorium, where the Chinese New Year concert immediately followed. The students sat according to their houses, leaving an aisle down the centre of the audience floor. The concert started with the screening of the Malaysian short film “Family Portrait (全家福)” by James Lee, which conveyed a heartwarming reminder to students and teachers to spend treasured time with their loved ones over the celebratory period. After the short film, emcees Clarissa Tan (1T03), Sophia Sng (2T01) and Kaylee Chung (2T11) came onstage, dressed in traditional Chinese cheongsams befitting the occasion. They greeted the college, warmly welcoming the new J1s to the CJ family. They began by discussing the different festive customs of the various races of Singapore, setting the celebration in motion through their cheery showmanship. Next, the striking of the gong signalled the first performance of the day by the CJ Symphonic Band, followed by items by the Guzheng Ensemble. During the interludes two rounds of an inter-house quiz were held. It was titled “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?: Lunar New Year Edition”, emulating the formula of the well-known game show. After the quiz, CJ Dance performed a scaled-down lion dance, colourfully adorned in the ceremonial headgear of the lion costume and big head doll masks. The dancers moved down the aisle from the stage, showering sweets upon the students. The exit of the dancers signified the end of the line-up of performances. With that, the emcees gave the cue for the distribution of mandarin oranges to the teachers by the Student Councillors, Home Tutorial Councillors, Assistant Home Tutorial Councillors and Pastoral Care Councillors. Tokens of appreciation were also presented to the administrative and non-teaching staff of the college. Before the college departed for the canteen for their class potluck parties, the 2016 Orientation Group Leaders rallied the J1s to recite their Synergia tribe cheers, while the House Leaders followed after them by leading the college in their house cheers. At the canteen, the whole college engaged in the mass tossing of yu sheng, a symbolic custom to usher in prosperity with the Chinese New Year, bonding thereafter over the meals with their classes.

COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY

February 18

The theme for this year’s Commencement Ceremony was ‘Journeying towards Excellence in Learning and Living’. The ceremony marked the beginning of the new academic year and welcomed the new JC1s as part of the CJC family. The proceedings began with the opening hymn by the Music Ministry, “As We Gather”, and an opening prayer led by the college Chaplain, Father Leslie Raj. This was followed by a heartfelt speech by the 41st President of the Student Council, Michael Calija, who shared his hopes for the year ahead, stressing on the importance of growing together in truth and love and keeping the flame alive. He warmly welcomed the new batch of JC1s and reminded them that they are now officially part of CJC, all ready to strive for excellence in everything they do. Mrs Christine Kong then addressed the students. She asked them to reflect on the new opportunities, new experiences and new friendships which lie ahead of them, to ponder on what these new beginnings entail them to do and how they intend to pursue their journey this year. She also highlighted the importance of adopting actions that will develop growth and leadership, stressing that basic courtesy and simple acts of kindness and considerations should all be second nature to every CJCian, as these actions demonstrate humility, a vital leadership trait one must have in order to achieve success beyond imagination. Our Vice-Principal, Mr Tan Jek Suan, then went on stage to lead the presentation of the collar pins. Mr Tan offered an explanation of the three colours of the flame – Red, Yellow and Orange, symbolising Love, Truth and Sacrifice. After the blessing of the pins by Father Raj, the House Captains handed them over to the HTCs, who subsequently distributed them to the various classes. To welcome the JC1s into the college family, the JC2s presented the pins and personalised gifts to the juniors. Finally, the community prayer, led by Father Raj with representatives from the JC1s, the JC2s, the Parents’ Support Group (PSG), and the teaching and non-teaching staff of the college, encapsulated the CJ family spirit in excelling together. The lighting of the college candle by these members of the college and Mrs Kong symbolised the coming together of the entire CJ community. The college was once again brought to their feet for the closing prayer and the singing of the closing song “We Are Called”. As the ceremony came to an end, the school song was proudly sung, and the college legacy, “In Truth and Love”, was passed on to the new batch of students.

MOTHER TONGUE LANGUAGE (MTL) FORTNIGHT 22 February – 4 March “Sustainability through Partnerships - Capitalizing on Collaboration” The Mother Tongue Language(MTL) Department, in collaboration with the National Heritage Board of Singapore (NHB), organized a meaningful experiential learning journey ‘Unlocking the Cultural Puzzles @ Balestier’ for 400 of our students to help them to gain a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of the history and heritage of Balestier Road. This out-of-the-classroom learning exercise provided a cultural context for the stories and teaching material that have been shared with students during their MTL lessons. Students were given the opportunity to assume the role of tour guides. They were responsible for looking up selected historical sites and sharing this information with their peers when the respective destinations were visited. Through this process, our students were able to practise organisational and planning skills, take on a leadership mantle, and hone their ability in working under pressure, exercising initiative and perseverance. The NHB provided training for our teachers, ensuring that the entire experience was run smoothly. MTL teachers attended workshops provided by NHB on basic guiding and script writing skills, while student tour guides attended subsequent workshops conducted by their respective subject tutors. After the journey, students worked in groups to produce a short video to consolidate their learning and share their individual experiences. Many of our students gave positive feedback about this project, describing how the eye-opening trip has helped them to better appreciate the unique cultural heritage of the Balestier area. In addition, our students deepened their ability to think critically, acquire problem solving and teamwork skills and fostered strong interpersonal bonds through exploring and learning about local communities.

‘A’ LEVEL RESULTS

March 4

The Class of 2015 returned to their alma mater for the release of their GCE ‘A’ Level results. Amid the atmosphere of anticipation, the J3s caught up with old schoolmates and teachers, before assembling in the Auditorium. Vice-Principal Mr Tan Jek Suan greeted and welcomed the J3s back to the college, and then invited Mrs Christine Kong, Principal of CJC, onto the stage to give her address. Mrs Kong reiterated Mr Tan’s welcome, and spared little time in announcing that the J3s’ results were the college’s best since 2008. She disclosed their high pass rate and the increase in the number of students with outstanding results. There was resounding applause as Mrs Kong presented the list of these outstanding students. She noted the Archbishop, Flame, and English Language and Linguistics Scholars and Student Leaders — comprising Home Tutorial Councillors, Assistant Home Tutorial Councillors, CCA executive committee members and House Captains and Vice-Captains — who performed well. She also commended students who made significant improvements from the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) or ‘O’ Level results. She further gave special mention to the students among the Class of 2015 who revisited JC1, noting that they performed very well. Special mention was made of Gladys Tan and Chia Zong Yang Eugene, who overcame the odds to become top scorers. Mrs Kong then reminded the J3s of the multiple pathways that they could choose to take from thereon. Finally, she urged the J3s to keep the flame of Truth and Love burning, as they set out from CJC onto these different routes. The J3s then proceeded to receive their ‘A’ Level results from their teachers, with the top performers directed to the Library. These top students took celebratory group photographs with Mrs Kong and were also interviewed for various college publications.

ANNUAL CROSS COUNTRY

March 11

At 7.30am, CJCians gathered at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, all ready to be at the starting line. Teachers were participants as well. The event began with the flag-raising ceremony with everyone singing the national anthem proudly in unison. On the ground were enthusiastic individuals following the warm-up before the run, led by the four house captains. The atmosphere started to liven up with thumping music hitting the speakers. To most of us, music is a must for a run. Not only does a song give us a rhythm to run with, but it also sets our mind to moving our bodies. The teachers were the first group of people to run. Students were cheering them on while waiting for their turn to run. Everyone waiting was excited as they saw the J2s boys headed for the starting line. Finally, the J1s ran for the finishing line by 9am. Along the running route were cheerful supporters who were rooting for their peers and house mates. As the time drew closer to the end of the event, classes were seated before the stage for the announcement of the results. Medals were awarded to the Top 20 male and female runners for both cohorts, as well as for the staff. In addition, there was a farewell ceremony for Mr Eric Lee, our Vice-Principal (Curriculum). The house captains and Mrs Kong presented him with tokens of appreciation. The event ended with a speech by Mrs Kong, expressing her appreciation to the college’s sports leaders for their hard work in organising the run for the college community.

THINK CAREERS AND HIGHER EDUCATION FEST

May 18-19

The annual Think Careers and Higher Education Fest is held annually to help our JC2 students to plan their life after graduation by giving them insights into various career and university options. CJC alumni gave talks and shared their experiences in various fields such as the arts, media, teaching, architecture, healthcare, social work, aviation, banking and finance, and entrepreneurship .Universities were invited to set up booths to provide information and advice. This year, the theme was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be the changeâ&#x20AC;?, emphasizing that CJCians should not only think about their future plans, but to also think about making a change in our society and the wider community. This was seen in many of the CJC alumni who came to give insightful and informative talks, as they have pursued careers which they are passionate about, and positively impacted the people around them and the society as a whole. Examples of such role models are Ms Christine Tan, a news anchor for CNBC, Mr Nicholas Wong, a TV producer who works with Auditoire Singapore, Mr John Yap, co-founder of Awfully Chocolate, Mr Ervin Han, the managing director and co-founder of Robot Media Playground, Ms Amelia Lee, who is part of the Investment Banking Division of DBS Bank, and Mr Harvey Koenig, a Tax Partner for KPMG Singapore. The Higher Education fair was held in the auditorium, where numerous booths were set up by both local and international universities, such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore Management University (SMU), and universities from Australia and the UK. There were other booths focusing on niche careers, such as aviation and the Navy as well.

SPORTS AND AESTHETICS CARNIVAL

May 20 & 27

CJC’s annual Sports and Aesthetics Carnival was held over the last 2 Fridays of Term 2, ending the gruelling semester with an exuberant event. This year’s theme was “Kairos: Strength in Camaraderie”, symbolising the passion displayed by CJCians as they competed to bring glory to their houses. The events featured at MOE’s Co – curricular Activities Branch included badminton, tag rugby, water sports, competitive swimming and volleyball. Track and field events were held at the Bishan Stadium. The community gathered once again in CJC for the second leg of the carnival, where various team events such as basketball, soccer and unconventional games like tele-match were held. Apart from sports, a separate competition occurred concurrently, namely, the photography competition where teams of 2 had to aptly capture moments during the carnival that encompassed the theme “Potential”. A photo story had to then be crafted and submitted for vetting. Teacher- student games were also held. Later, the dance competition went underway with the various houses demonstrating precision in the execution of their dance moves and leaving the crowd awestruck. It was the performance by Michael House that truly stole the show with their acrobatics and crisp movements, bagging the 1st place for the event. The award ceremony was held shortly after the dance performance and various medals were presented to the winners of the events across the 2 days. The atmosphere was brimming with joy as friends acknowledged the accomplishments of their peers. Albert House emerged as the Champion House of the Sports and Aesthetics Carnival, with Joseph, Patrick and Michael respectively trailing close behind.

CJCELEBRATES

July 1

The annual, highly anticipated CJCelebrates was back again with spectacular performances by our performing arts groups on July 1. There was a flurry of activity behind the curtains in the Performing Arts Centre (PAC) as members got themselves ready for the big stage where they would showcase their performances and award winning Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) pieces. In order to give a preview of what the next two hours would entail the Film, Sound and Video Society put together a trailer consisting of exclusive behind the scenes footage of the performers practising for the show. The audience members were also encouraged to walk through the FSV’s very own Photo Gallery after the show to take in the photographers’ personal interpretations of the world they see through the camera lens. The first performance to take the stage was the Guzheng Ensemble, which performed two melodious pieces. Next, Chinese Drama members pounced on stage to perform a play titled ‘Meow’. It was no wonder that the play, which showcased a desperate girl in search of her cat, interjected with humorous dialogues that amused the crowd, managed to clinch the Distinction Award in this year’s SYF. The Choir, which has won many accolades over the years, then sang three pieces. Next up was the Guitar Ensemble, performing a medley of Strauss waltzes and Spanish Coffee. These pieces had also been played in their concert with Republic Polytechnic at the Esplanade. The final three performances were by the Drama Society, the Dance Club and the Symphonic Band. The Drama Society performed an original performance entitled ‘Aftershock’ based on the September 11 terrorist attacks. The dancers then livened up the ambience with some contemporary and hip hop. Last but not least, the Symphonic Band brought their scores to life as the various instruments blended together in harmony. The members of the audience also followed the band members in lighting up the PAC with the flashlights on their phones whilst swaying to the music. The finale consisted of all the performing arts groups coming together as one to perform a final act, proving that art is an international language that brings hearts together.

STUDENT LEADERS INSTALLATION CEREMONY

July 8

The JC1 Student Leaders Installation Ceremony was a momentous event for the newly appointed 42nd cohort of student leaders. This year’s theme “The Flame Inherited, Our Legacy Upheld, Leading in Truth and Love”, truly embodied the passing of leadership from the 41st cohort of student leaders to the incoming student leaders. The opening prayers, led by Msgr Philip Heng, emphasised the meaning of true leadership and with his reading of Matthew 5:13-16, he spoke of how leaders were the “salt and light” of the earth, possessing the ability to influence change. Mrs.Kong in her speech addressed the core values of leading in “truth and love”. The momentous lighting of the flame was next carried out as Michael Calija, the outgoing President of the 41st Student Council passed on the flame to the incoming President of the 42nd Student Council, Derrick Tan, to signify the continuation of the legacy of leadership. The flame was then passed to the Student Councillors, the House Captains, the CCA Leaders and the Home Tutorial Councillors. Derrick Tan(1T01), the newly appointed President of the 42nd Student Council, gave a speech on what leadership meant to him after proudly leading the student leaders in reciting the Student Leader’s pledge. The students were also addressed by alumna and guest-of-honour Nicole Ng, who was CJ’s President of the 31st Student Council from 1995-1996. She stressed on the need to always be kind to others as she enlightened the audience on her Company’s innovation, The Food Bank Singapore, a project initiated to donate food to the less fortunate. The solemn ceremony ended with the entire college community singing the college anthem.

RACIAL HARMONY DAY

July 9

Racial Harmony Day was a day when CJCians came together to celebrate the different cultures that make up Singapore’s multi-cultural society. It was a day when students and staff members could come dressed in either their own or another culture’s ethnic costume. The day began with an impactful reflection, touching on the unique experiences and challenges of multi-ethnic and multicultural Singapore and the need for every Singaporean to maintain a cohesive and strong society. The celebrations in the PAC began with a play put up by the English Drama Society. It dwelt on how every member of our society should play their part in maintaining the harmonious social fabric of our nation. After the play, the students were also treated to an Inter-house Current Affairs Quiz, with student representatives from Joseph, Albert, Patrick and Michael Houses. With the help of enthusiastic emcees and participants who had a wealth of general knowledge at their fingertips, the quiz was certainly an exciting one to watch. After a well fought battle with the other three houses, Albert House emerged the champion. All in all, the Racial Harmony Day Celebrations were filled with laughter and joy and brought a wave of colour into the daily routine of college life. With foreign and local students of all cultures and backgrounds coming together to celebrate this day as one, many have developed a deeper appreciation for the cultures of those around them.

LITERARY EVENING

July 22

Mere Mortals was the theme of CJC’s 10th Literary Evening which always performs for a full house. It was the first time all five Literature texts taught in CJC were adapted for the performances. The texts were The Age of Innocence, The Scarlet Letter, All My Sons, Othello and A Streetcar Named Desire. The evening began with 2T01 and 2T21’s Till Sin Do Us Part which dwelt on lust and jealousy through a meet-up of two sinful characters, Blanche DuBois from A Streetcar Named Desire and Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter. 2T05, 2T16, 2T18 and 2T29 presented a performance titled All My Innocence. As suggested by the title, it was a combination of the plays Age of Innocence and All My Sons. 2T06 staged a play called Once Upon A Dream, where characters from A Streetcar Named Desire and All My Sons resided in an asylum. 2T04 and 2T25 gave us The Reckoning, wherein Blanche Dubois from A Streetcar Named Desire met Reverend Dimmesdale from A Scarlet Letter. In addition, for the first time the J3 Literature students returned to CJC with their spectacular performance of Gods Do Not Bleed. The evening concluded on a euphoric note as the classes were presented with prizes, with 2T06 winning Best Overall Performance and 2T04 winning Best Set Production. Literary Evening was truly an amazing experience, especially for the J1s. The imaginative creations of the J2s and the J3s inspired further thought about how these plays reflect certain aspects of our mortal existences.

NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATIONS

August 8

On the 8th of August, CJ held its annual National Day Celebrations, celebrating Singapore’s 51st year of independence. The day began with morning mass, held in the school’s very own Chapel where students and staff members gathered together for an hour of worship. As morning assembly took place in the Piazza, students, donned in their respective house tees, formed a sea of red, yellow, orange and green. The National Day Observance Ceremony started with a formal march in by the school’s uniformed group members. Mrs Kong was then invited to inspect the parade. At the end of the ceremony, the students dispersed to the grandstand. A short game of Finding Nemo (National Education Moments) ensued which got the students cheering for their respective houses. The college then skipped to the beat of music to raise money for charity as one community. The beneficiaries from this Skip-A-thon are Assisi Hospice and the Children’s Cancer Trust. To end the event, each member from Joseph, Albert, Michael and Patrick House had a representative come up to sing one of the many National Day Songs that we all know and love. Together as one college community, voices unified to sing along to ‘Home’, the iconic National Day Song of 2008. Celebrating Singapore’s National Day as one united nation, Albert House also exemplified their house spirit, once again coming in first place, followed closely by Michael, Joseph and Patrick. Mrs Christine Kong gave her closing address, and brought an end to the day’s exciting activities.

The theme of this year’s celebration was ‘Wind Beneath Our Wings’, paying tribute to how the teachers help their students soar to greater heights. The day began with each Home Tutorial Class sharing a hearty breakfast with their respective Home Tutors, with food contributed by various members of the class. The atmosphere was cosy and lively, with laughter and banter being exchanged throughout the meal and as they began the hands-on kite making session. With their uniquely designed kites, the students then made their way to the field to try and get their kites up and flying. With a roaring start to the morning, students and teachers filed into the Auditorium for the last part of the day’s celebrations. The Film Sound and Video Society presented a compilation of videos celebrating the spirit of the day’s activities, followed by a performance by Reuben Tang of 1T29, who sang an original composition he wrote for the teachers.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual staff celebration was organised as a Staff Lunch at Raffles Hotel. It was both a grand yet casual affair as teaching and nonteaching staff let loose and fully participated in dressing up to the theme of A Long Long Time Ago and revelled in their shared history and nostalgia of the various phases that Singapore has gone through. Each department put up highly entertaining performances aligned with the theme and the efforts in preparing these items this year were highly commendable, lending to the overall merriment and excitement of the afternoon. Each CJC staff member walked away from the event with themed door gifts and some lucky winners with even more.

True to the CJC experience, the JC2s spent some time with their classmates who they have bonded fondly with over the last 2 years, reflecting on their unique yet relatable experiences. This was followed by the symbolic pinning of the 2016 graduation pins and the presentation of the graduation folders by their Home Tutors. The graduating cohort then gathered at the Auditorium where they were treated to a picture montage of dedications by their teachers, who conveyed their well wishes to their students in creative and amusing ways. Candles with personalized messages from the juniors were also distributed to the graduating cohort, a show of support and family spirit in the CJ community. The house captains then proceeded to march into the Auditorium, displaying the creation pieces of each class which formed a collection of memoirs of the student body. After the prayer service led by Father Raj, Mrs Christine Kong, the Principal, addressed the students, emphasizing the CJ mission to develop CJCians to be adaptive and prepared for the complexity of the world, as well as to be relentless in the pursuit of excellence and inspiration.

GRADUATION NIGHT

December 6

With the year coming to an end and the ‘A’ levels completed, there was no better way to celebrate then for the JC2s to dress to the nines and enjoy a night of ‘Broadway’ surrounded by friends and teachers from the CJ family. The excitement in the air was palpable as the graduating cohort of 2016 gathered at Orchard Hotel on 6 December. A mass of smartly dressed young men and women chatting heartily and exchanging smiles created a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Performances by the college’s very own band, The Grandstand, and other student performers such as Muhamad Khair (2T01), kicked off the night with energetic performances of pop songs. This was followed by melodious ballads by Jeremy Soh (2T02) and Goh Ying Hao (2T05). As the night wore on, hopeful JC2s were called onto the stage as their names were selected for the lucky draw, winning attractive prizes presented by the teachers themselves. One of the main attractions in the ballroom was the photobooth set up by the Film Sound Video Society where groups of friends posing with props captured a moment of fun and laughter with a photograph. Masses of students lined up, eager to get a picture with their friends and create a beautiful memory frozen in time. The night ended with the highly anticipated crowning of Mr and Ms CJC, students who exemplified the meaning of beauty both inside and out. After a round of light hearted questioning, Mrs Christine Kong put on the sash for winners, Mr and Ms CJ 2016, Benedict Lim (2T05) and Kayler Chong (2T06). The celebrations were truly well deserved as CJCians commemorated the end of a fulfilling two years and look forward to their various journeys in the coming years.

2016 has been a challenging year for both the Girls’ and the Boys’ Badminton teams. Even though both CJ badminton teams were unable to clinch any trophies, the process and journey to the National Inter-School Badminton Championship definitely helped develop our CJ shuttlers into better team players and leaders of the future. The 2016 Badminton Girls’ team also put up a great fight against schools in the preliminary round, such as River Valley High, Jurong Junior College and Pioneer Junior College, allowing our CJ girls to attain the title of Top 8. It definitely is a great feat for the CJ shuttlers to be able to juggle both studies and training during the examination period. The CJ Badminton boys also displayed perseverance and a strong fighting spirit during their matches. All in all, 2016 was a good year for CJ badminton; the defeats we faced will definitely spur on future generations of CJ badminton players to strive for better results!

Under the constant guidance of coach, Mr Aaron Teo along with our teachers-in-charge, Mr Lim Meng Hui and Mr Ivan Ng, the CJC Basketball Team has matured tremendously. The training sessions inculcated the value of sportsmanship which guided the players through the various competitive matches, as well as the unwavering perseverance which runs deep in every member of the Team. Through various bonding activities, such as the Basketball Training Camp held in the March holidays and the 5-on-5 Farewell Tournament held for the exiting JC2 basketballers, the bonds forged between our players will hold strong even after they have left the college. The countless endeavours and adversities we faced together have brought us together as one CJC Basketball family. Representing our college in the annual â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division Championships, our players never ceased to impress spectators with their infectious will to succeed and triumph. 2016 has been truly a memorable journey of growth for all our players.

Notwithstanding the fact that some joined canoeing with little or no prior experience, our CJC canoeists competed against strong rivals from traditional canoeing powerhouses and made it to the finals. Lim Wei Sheng Benedict of 2T05 came in 6th for the A-Boys K1-1000m race, Kor Ming Soon of 2T25 came in 6th for the A-Boys C1-1000m race and Tan Natasha of 2T27 came in 6th for the A-Girls K1-500m race. This journey has not been an easy one with arduous training, sunburns, muscle aches but it was all worthwhile. Going through this journey was only possible with the support each member gave and our motto ‘Mentis Opprimo Materia’, which is Latin for ‘Mind Over Matter’, is a constant fuel for our canoeists to never give up and keep going. “You will never know your limits, unless you keep pushing yourself to achieve them”.

The CJC Chinese Drama Society is a closely knitted family of passionate actors and stage crew who never fail to put up our best performance. We presented our play at the 2016 Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation and made history by clinching the Certificate of Distinction we all coveted. The preparation for SYF was definitely a tough journey because most of our members were new to the performing arts. We faced many challenges along the way but we managed to overcome them as a team. The support from our dedicated teachers and instructor, as well as the members, enabled us to cross one hurdle after another. This achievement is a result of all our intensive preparations and it serves as a testament to how our members have grown as actors and good team players. To showcase our talents in the college, the script was revised and performed during CJCelebrates to include more dramatic elements within the play, hoping to better entertain our audience. Bonding activities such as a barbecue, a chalet and study sessions were organized to help members cope with the intense training and take a breather from the hectic curriculum. We also promoted our CCA through various theatre games played during CJC Open House and CCA Bazaar. 2016 has indeed been a purposeful and enriching year for all of us.

The CJC Choir, founded in 2000, has grown and flourished under the guidance of award-winning conductor, Mr Toh Ban Sheng. Since 2006, the Choir has established itself as a group committed to achieving musical excellence and has taken part in many local and overseas competitions over the years. The CJC Choir has produced outstanding performance in these competitions and obtained notable achievements including distinctions in the local SYF Arts Presentations. In 2016, the Choir held two public performances, namely, ‘This Is The Moment’, a choral concert directed by Mr Toh and organised by Crescent Girls’ School, and the annual CJCelebrates! What has been more noteworthy about our journey is how our members remain a warm and unassuming family. Each singer is an important member of the group, and nurtured to become a better singer. Our singers develop not only their vocal skills and musicality, but also a deep appreciation for the magic of music-making as a team. Ēriks Ešenvalds, from Latvia and one of the most sought-after choral composers with performances in every continent, spent one afternoon and conducted a choral workshop for the Choir during the March school holidays. It was, indeed, an exciting and insightful experience for our singers to work directly under Mr Ešenvalds, the composer of ‘The Heaven’s Flock’, a choral piece which they sang in the public performance. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our conductor, Mr Toh Ban Sheng, for the time dedicated to us and the invaluable guidance that he provided, allowing us to achieve our greatest potential. We also wish to express our gratitude to our teachers-in-charge for their hard work and dedication.

Rigorous training is needed when it comes down to long distance running and that is one of the reasons why a lot of people tend to dread it. Not for the Cross Country team though as they train multiple times a week in order to outperform others on the track. There have been many struggles, injuries, pain and trying to cope with their studies but in the end, the long journey was still one that can be seen to be worthwhile. We have participated in many competitions, facing tough competitors in all of them. However, our crossers did not back away in the face of stronger competitors. Their goal was simple and yet tough. For the Boys’ team and the Girls’ team alike, it was to achieve 7th place overall for the National ‘A’ Division Cross Country Championship. However, one of the girls had an even higher goal, to achieve at least 17th place in the individual rankings. Mariana Ramos Branicio had achieved 17th place last year and was hoping to achieve this position again this year. She outdid herself this year and was placed 6th in the Individual A Division Girls. Despite the odds stacked against them, the girls outdid themselves and achieved 6th position overall, which exceeded what they hoped to achieved. The male crossers had also faced an extremely tough run ahead of them, with very tough competitors and with most of them having close to no running background. The team, however, trained relentlessly and managed to achieve the 7th position, meeting their goal set. Marcus Ong En Hong (1T30) came in 35th, with a remarkable time of 19:07. Our team had pushed themselves and had grown and improved, beating their previous timings. As both the Boys’ and the Girls’ teams had met their goals, they are truly crossers who have forged the path ahead for the new J1 team.

CJC’s very own Dance Club has grown in numbers since its first team of 10 members to a respectable troupe of 60 passionate dancers. They are taught by their instructors, Ronnie Chen and Kwok Min Li, who teach hip hop and contemporary dance respectively. The dancers have been performing tirelessly both within the school and in open performances, such as the CJ Open House, Dance Extravaganza @ Esplanade along with Ngee Ann City’s Music In The City.

After ‘Peer Pleasure’, CJ Drama’s JC2 cohort set their sights on this year’s Singapore Youth Festival (SYF). With rehearsals and devising processes starting in late 2015, the team decided on the theme of ‘terrorism’, inspired by the 9/11 terrorist attack. The CJ Drama Society ventured into uncharted waters by combining physical theatre and lip-syncing, a never-before used dramatic element in the SYF. After three gruelling months of practice, the team produced an emotionally-charged performance at Goodman Arts Centre, concluding their SYF journey. In 2016, the J1 English Drama Society members embarked on a journey of theatrical experimentation to stage a vibrant and lighthearted production for the Racial Harmony Day celebrations. The play explored controversial themes of prejudice and intolerance that still surface in socially harmonious Singapore, where a young girl explores what it truly means to be Singaporean amidst a racially diverse society.

The Editorial Club has had an enriching year as student journalists, documenting college life and events. We continue to nurture leadership skills through a mentoring system, in which JC2 and JC1 members are paired to cover the reporting of college events, to instill collaboration and maintain a high standard of writing. Publicity of The Flame was also intensified to promote readership among the CJC community through distribution of complimentary copies and announcements. Good English Week (GEW) Based on the theme “Around the World”, this year’s GEW aimed to underscore the relevance and importance of the English language and how it promotes connections between people of diverse backgrounds. Members created vibrant posters to illustrate appropriate use of grammar, spelling and punctuation, different varieties of English and a concise history of the English Language. To engage the college community, interactive games were included as part of the exhibition and a games booth was set up in the canteen to encourage CJCians to put their language skills to the test. Workshops and Courses Our JC2 members conducted two in-house workshops for JC1 members, focusing on the conventions of report writing and crafting effective headlines. On 9 April, the JC2s attended a student journalist conference, ‘The Press Conference’, organised by Raffles Institution (JC), which broadened their perspectives on the role of student journalists. The Exco also attended an English Language and Linguistics (ELL) workshop on ‘News Discourse’, conducted by CJC alumnus Lester Hio, a journalist with The Straits Times.

The Environmental Science Society is a club committed to raising awareness about environmental issues such as global warming, water conservation and our depleting natural resources. We also advocate for change to address these issues such as encouraging the need to recycle. With a firm belief in needing to conserve our planet for future generations, we champion green habits and ideas in the school campus by organising events to provide opportunities for all in the college to play an active role in caring for our environment. Earth Day Programme (EDP) This is a flagship programme for our Society and this year a week-long programme was held in April when Earth Day was commemorated. The activities included reading the Earth Day message from our Minister of Environment and Water Resources, an exhibition on the Life of a recycled plastic bottle, and the implementation of a recycling drive for plastic bottles and paper. The recycling of paper was conducted as a house-based competition. The society bought new covered recycling bins which were larger in size to encourage more people to recycle their used bottles. Greenwave Continuing the tradition of seniors, this year, we pruned and fertilized the Kayu Arang tree which our society planted 6 years ago. “Greenwave” is a project under NParks to involve the community in the conservation of and care for our environment. The event was also symbolic as the seniors handed over the responsibility of environmental conservation to their juniors.

Persistence and commitment are the two defining characteristics of CJ fencers. Despite suffering setbacks, we always bounce back, never settling for anything short of perfection and are constantly on the search for new ways to hone our skills and sharpen our game sense. During the National Inter-School Fencing Championships, the Girls’ team managed to clinch an overall silver team medal. Rachel Lam from 2T02 and Stephanie Hong from 2T25 both clinched a joint bronze for the Individual Women’s Foil event. Dawn Tan from 2T29 also achieved a joint bronze for the Individual Women’s Sabre event. In Fencing, we value the lessons learnt from the individual trials that each fencer has fought to attain his or her goals. 2016 has been a rewarding year when our fencers grew from strength to strength from the different opportunities, forging bonds among the members to build a cohesive family.

The year 2016 has been eventful for the First Aid Club, filled with numerous events, such as the biannual Blood Donation Drives, the First Aid Photo-Quiz Competition and the Sports Leaders’ Training Workshop. As with every Blood Donation Drive, we strive to surpass the expectations laid upon us by our teachers. With meticulous planning by our EXCO, strong teamwork between our club members, coupled with guidance from our teachers, our blood donation drives continue to garner strong interest and participation among the CJC family. We are ecstatic that with each subsequent blood donation drive, there is an increasing number of students and staff expressing interest in doing their part to save lives. We also gained further first aid exposure by participating in the inaugural First Aid Photo-Quiz Competition where both theoretical and practical first aid skills were put to the test at Temasek Junior College. Our member, Tang Jia Ming, clinched 5th out of over 150 participants in the competition. Our club has always passionately provided first aid services to the college during school events. In ensuring that the school is wellequipped with individuals with first aid skills, the First Aid Club has co-organised the annual Sports Leaders’ Training Workshop with the PE teachers’ guidance, to impart invaluable first aid knowledge to the school’s Sports Leaders. As the incoming EXCO steps up, we look forward to the club’s ever-zealous service to the CJC family for the year of 2017 and for many years to come.

Floorball is a relatively new CCA, being only 5 years old. However, we boast over 40 members, all having a burning passion for the sport. Although many of our members have not had any prior experience, their passion drives them to seek improvement. Despite being separated by gender during training, many floorballers know each other, which has allowed the Floorball family to be a warm and loving one. Despite facing adversity in the recent ‘A’ Division, both teams persevered till the end, putting up a tough fight in each match amidst challenging and worthy opponents. The girls managed to progress into the semi-finals, emerging 4th overall. The Boys’ team managed to clinch victory against RVHS with a scoreline of 7-0, together with several close matches. Both teams have improved from the previous batches, and we are confident they will continue to do so. We pass on the flame with confidence to the J1s, having faith that they will continue to bring the CCA to greater heights.

The JC1s were eager to begin their journey towards the 2016 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division Competition. Though eager, the footballers had much to learn and to improve on. At the beginning, it was tough getting used to competitive football as most of the boys have not trained to play football competitively. The months that followed were tough as the squad went through a lot of drills to get their fitness levels up. It was tiring and arduous training, clocking up the mileage on the track every Friday morning, from 5km runs progressively to 10km runs, in order to build up cardiovascular fitness. The CCA was privileged to receive Coach Kadir Yahaya as our newly appointed coach. Coach Kadir is a much coveted coach with many years of experience, including playing for the National Team, and being part of the team that won the Malaysia Cup in 1994. As an astute trainer, Coach Kadir meant business as he implemented a tough training scheme for the boys. The team was blessed with a talented batch of JC1 footballers and as the tournament drew closer, the boys were more determined to make their mark. Several pre-season matches were arranged and the team did not lose a single friendly game, beating RJC and holding ACJC, two of the top flight schools in football. CJC Football entered the tournament with high hopes and expectations, determined to bring honour to the College. Unfortunately, the team was eliminated in the group stage. Nonetheless, the team held their heads up high, and was keen to play out the remaining games with equal endeavour and commitment. Eventually, the boys put on their best performance and beat the top team in the group, MiIlenia Institute 2-0. It was a great journey for all the CJC Footballers. Seeing them grow from passionate but inexperienced footballers, and develop into skilled and seasoned footballers, made them realise how much they have benefitted from the experience. CJC Footballers would like to thank our Coach, Kadir and also our teachers-in-charge, Mr Adrian Ho, Mr Mark Li and Dr Thirukotti for their guidance and support. CEEJAYY! FOOTBALL!

The Ensemble serves as a platform for its members to bond and improve their guitar skills together while enjoying themselves in the process. This year we performed in a joint concert with an ensemble from Republic Polytechnic at the Esplanade, in lunch-time concerts as well as College events, such as CJCelebrates. Through the Ensembleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various performances and practices, we have provided our members with a unique and unforgettable experience, allowing us to build strong bonds in the Ensemble. At the same time, with the support and guidance of our teachers-incharge and instructor, we have made great improvements in our guitar skills and will continue to captivate the audience with our music.

The CJC Guzheng Ensemble started the year 2016 by having the J2s members performing for the Chinese New Year celebration after a successful showcase at the CJC Open House 2016. As the Guzheng Ensemble embarked on its 11th year, the CCA Bazaar managed to attract many passionate J1s to join the ensemble. Though most of the members have no musical background or knowledge, the Guzheng Ensemble still gave a breath-taking performance at the annual CJ Celebrates! 2016. This CJ Celebrates! allowed the ensemble to break through the traditional image and performed with a modern look. Despite having to juggle multiple commitments at once, our members have forged strong bonds with one another through the practices leading up to these performances. The memories created throughout this journey will be treasured by our members even after graduating from CJC. Ever since the J2s stepped down, the J1s have been practising hard in preparation for the upcoming Singapore Youth Festival 2017.

Gymnastics has been offered by the college for more than a decade, and the school is one of the few institutions to offer it. Catholic Junior College Gymnastics comprises three disciplines; artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and trampoline. Despite the academic rigor of the JC curriculum, our gymnasts still managed to juggle their studies and strenuous gymnastics training. With hard work and determination, and with the support of the teachers-in-charge, this year the team did the school extremely proud by achieving many commendable awards.

This year, the Interact Club embarked on a fruitful journey in serving the local and international community. The projects were aligned with the club’s theme of “In Love, We Believe”, as we strove to reach out to the less privileged of various categories with genuine passion and love.

as well as equipping them with basic English communication skills. This project enabled us to clinch the Merit Award for the Best Interact Club Project from the Rotary Club. We went to Cambodia and taught the students at Don Bosco Salabalath Primary School basic English and Mathematics. Through the construction of playground rockers and cultivating the school’s rice plantation, we gained a deeper insight of the lifestyle of the Cambodians. Our service extended beyond the younger kids, as when dusk fell, we visited Mgr Paul Tep Im Centre, teaching pre-university students real life communication skills and standard procedures during job interviews to improve their future career prospects.

During the year, we engaged with Youth Corps Singapore(YCS) to participate in Common Good with a Common Space, where we had the opportunity to interact with individuals with mental handicap @ MINDSville Napiri. With the help of our Rotarian Adviser, we participated in a Durian Feast at Society of the Aged Sick, where we served and fed the seniors durian which they get to enjoy only once in a blue moon. For the first time, our Interact Club collaborated with the Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) to take part in the Silver Friends event, whereby members engaged with the lessprivileged and desolate elderly living in Toa Payoh and Whampoa estates. Over a span of four months, members went on monthly visits to the locations to spend time with the seniors, teaching them simple craft and ensuring that they remain mentally active through mildly challenging games. These activities served to remind the elderly that there are still those in the community who love and care for them.

Members of the club also committed to weekly community involvement projects (CIP) at our weekly locations around Singapore. These include Beyond Social Services, St. Luke’s Eldercare, Asian Woman Welfare Association (AWWA), Lakeside Social Service, Lakeside at Jurong, Society of the Aged Sick and Bishan Home. Interactors also took the further step of initiating several projects at their location, including Project Appreciate @ Bishan, Celebrating with Our Antiques @ St. Luke’s Eldercare Centre and In Veritate Et Beyond Caritate @ Beyond.

In collaboration with Sustainable Cambodia, we conducted our annual Overseas Service Learning Programme, building biosand filters for the villagers and playground equipment for the young kids in school,

The Interact Club is grateful for the support from the College and the community stakeholders in our service learning and fundraising projects.

For over 30 years, Judo Club in CJC has always produced noteworthy Judokas. As our Judokas go through the rigorous and extensive training sessions expertly crafted by our experienced coaches, they slowly build up their endurance, mental strength and show true commitment to push themselves to the best of their ability. Their mental resilience was once again evident in their performances in the National ‘A’ Division Judo Championships. This year, there were consistent performances from our Judokas and we managed to clinch 2 silver and 4 bronze medals. Overall, CJC Judo clinched overall third position for our excellent performance. Beyond their achievements, it is our Judokas’ dedication to the sport which is the most commendable. Most of our JC2 Judokas went on to obtain their orange belts later in the year and some even obtained green belts. This is a great achievement, given that all of them started as white belt novices. Throughout the whole year, our Judokas have forged strong bonds, fostered great team spirit and emerged as champions in their own ways.

2016 was a challenging year for the netballers of Catholic Junior College. We had a new coach and the team was all prepared to start a new year, with an aim to get into the top 8 in the National ‘A’ Division Netball Championships. We faced many obstacles mainly to train up a competitive team within a short timeframe of 5 months. It was also a challenging task to change some players from being defenders to shooters to midfielders. However, all these did not stop us from going all out and fighting for our ultimate goal. A highlight of the year was the March holiday training camp as it allowed us to grasp certain skills, work on our basics and have friendly matches with other schools. This helped us to gain exposure to the various kinds of playing styles, allowing us to be more versatile with our own. During the camp, there was no distinction between seniors and juniors, everyone was equally competent and everyone was training to get into the competitive team. Even till now, we treasure the experience we had. We, as seniors, hope this netball spirit still runs wild in the juniors. We wish you all the best in bringing glory to the college!

The Nexus Society is an entrepreneurship club where students learn how to set up and manage a business. The first business project was carried out during Valentine’s Day period when the J2s collaborated with Second Helpings, a company that sells “Beenut Butter”, to raise funds for the CJC Needy Student Fund and inculcate a culture of care in the community. The second business project was in July when the J1s provided henna drawing services to the student community in celebration of Racial Harmony Day. The J1s competed in the National Cashflow Competition in March , where students were given an opportunity to understand the economics of Singapore and appreciate the uniqueness of a small but economically-powerful nation. The J1s also participated in the Youth Entrepreneurship Symposium in June. This was a 3-days symposium which helped participants to build on their business ideas through a series of workshops and sharing sessions by established businessmen and rising entrepreneurs. Our 40th Annual General Meeting took place on 18 May , where the Executive Committee 2016/2017 was sworn in.

Captain Vice-Captain Team Manager Quartermaster Pack Leader Back Leader

The CJC Rugby team is more than just an activities group, it is a family. When one sheds blood, sweat and tears alongside one’s teammates, they become brothers. We had a team primarily made of greenhorns to the sport, never having played rugby before coming to CJC. That never was an obstacle we were willing to accept; we poured out souls and lungs into every training session. Our CJC Bulldogs have always followed the belief of being a family and this was evident in the way we motivated each other during training, prayed together before matches regardless of religion and even in our leisure time in the school canteen. Entering 2016, there were doubts about whether there would even be a team fielded with an incomplete squad of 13 J2s. With an influx of talented and hardworking J1s, our team transcended our adversities. Discipline, hard work, heart. These were the rules we lived by in training, under the regime of our coach who always pushed us to new limits; we ran faster, pushed harder and forged brotherhood. We faced a rough start to our 2016 National School Games Rugby campaign before registering wins over perennial rivals, such as JJC and MI with scores of 26-0 and 28-0 respectively. We combated tenacious sides like SAJC and RI, losing only narrowly to ACJC in a contest of sheer dynamism and physicality. In the Plate Category Finals, despite adverse field conditions from torrential rain, we fought with true grit, pushed on by the cheers of our supporters and the fervour that blazed within us. We finally toppled MI to capture the Plate Championship for the first time since 2008, marking this as CJC’s third Plate title. Through fortitude and determination, we had achieved our goals despite the towering odds against us. We fought the good fight and never counted the cost, relishing the camaraderie and growing our passion and love for the beautiful sport.

Shooting as a Co-Curricular Activity has always been one that is praised for developing individuals with resilience and fortitude, and this year’s team of shooters is no exception. Though long and arduous are the training sessions, it is definitely easy to say that it has forged many bonds, not only amongst the team but those supporting the team as well, our teachers and our beloved coach. Despite the challenges that we faced, such as the lack of time to train due to school events and hiccups from time to time, we made sure that we made full use of whatever time we had. During training, we buckled down and put our hundred and ten percent into our effort, which has produced wondrous results. In the National Inter-School A-Division Shooting Championship, eight of our shooters managed to enter the finals to compete against shooters in the National Youth Team.

One more year has passed, with Speakers’ Ink continuing its remarkable journey of growth, fun and success as a family! Pressing on fiercely with the tenacity and passion that drive us, we have dauntlessly fought on with an indomitable team spirit, dynamism and genuine love for our craft. The Debating Wing of Speakers’ Ink has once again done the college proud, with Ashwin Kurup (2T13) coming forward as one of the top 20 speakers in the DA(s)-ITE Debate Championships, demonstrating a captivating display of eloquence and wit alongside his team members! The Oratorical Wing has also been able to put its skills to the test in nation-wide events such as the Plain English Speaking Awards (YMCA PESA) facing intense competition from schools all around Singapore, along with events such as the Dunman High School Public Speaking Competition and Tampines Junior College Oratorical Competition, garnering experience and gaining exposure in the process! The team also put their public-speaking skills to good use at numerous college events such as Open House, Sports Carnival, Cross Country, the JC1 Thanksgiving Ceremony, the Commencement Ceremony,

and Mother Tongue Language Fortnight, as well as Annual Awards Day and the Parents’ Information Evening, keeping everyone fully and well entertained! Flame Wars, organized by Speakers’ Ink as a CCA-initiated, collegewide event, reeled in hidden talent from the various classes in an Inter-House Debate/Oratorical Championship, while introducing the wider student body to debate and oratorical opportunities. The winner of Flame Wars, Sophia Sng of 2T01, went on to represent the college as a finalist in the Plain English Speaking Awards (PESA) after an excellent performance in the semi-finals. The “Ink” has also worked together with other CCAs in the school, such as the Editorial Club, in a joint-initiative - the Good English Week with activities and games that aim to both educate as well as entertain! With a year of success, fun, and most importantly growth as individuals and as a group, may our succeeding batch of debaters and orators continue to do the CCA and college proud and reach new heights, always humbly remembering our roots, and proudly strive on as CJC’s premier debate and oratorical society!

2016 has been a fruitful year for the Strategy Games Club. The club has participated in numerous competitions and has managed to clinch top prizes. We began the year with the annual CJC Inter-College Chinese Chess Competition in March, where our President, Yang Yu Bing (2T16) achieved the 2nd placing in the Individual Category and, together with his teammates, won the 2nd place in the Team Category. The Chinese Chess team went on to participate in other competitions and we clinched the 3rd placing in both the PJC Chinese Chess Challenge and the Raffles Cup Chess Challenge. The Contract Bridge team also participated in various competitions such as the 10th Hwa Chong Bridge Competition and the Raffles Pairs 2016. With all the efforts and training prior to these competitions, Yap Xun Hao Nicholas (2T24) and Hue Zeng Ning (1T22) have done us proud by clinching the Best Mixed Pairs award at the Raffles Pairs. This was indeed a breakthrough for our Contract Bridge team. One of the highlights of our International Chess team was the 10th JJC Chess Competition, where Tran Minh Hoang (1T29) achieved

1st placing in the Individual category and led the team to overall champion in the Team Category. On another occasion, Tran Minh Hoang (1T29), Han Tong Joon Mitchell (2T03) and Clive Ong Zheng Long (1T20) represented our college to take part in the 68th National Schools Individual Chess Championships 2016, where they achieved 1st, 2nd and 4th placing respectively in the Zone category, and 3rd, 11th and 19th placing respectively in the Overall standing. Although they are not members of the club, we warmly welcome anyone who is skillful in any of the games to join us, and train and participate with us in these competitions. We also organised the Chinese Chess Competition and the Contract Bridge Competition, providing our student leaders a valuable platform to gain experience in organising and leadership skills. Both competitions served as a platform for our players to pit their skills against other strong competitors from other colleges. Through organising these competitions, we received encouraging response and feedback from participating schools.

SVDP is committed to serving the poor and underprivileged, by bringing them love, respect and practical aid. For the second year running, SVDP has brought good cheer to the elderly in the Senior Group Home @Pipit Road. To quote St. Teresa of Calcutta, there is a poverty of loneliness in developed countries. While the Home provides these elderly with material necessities, we shower them with companionship. Since 2012, SVDP has been reaching out to the migrant workers. In collaboration with 1T12 and ACMI, we distributed basic necessities to and organised an appreciation party for them. Their sacrifices for their families are truly admirable. For the first time, SVDP also carried out a textbook donation drive in aid of NTUCFairPrice’s community outreach project, collecting almost 100 textbooks! Through our service to others, frequent reflection and group sharing, we have also deepened our spirituality and broadened our perspectives and experienced priceless joy!

2016 has been an excellent year for CJC Swimming as we nabbed our first 2 medals in CJC history. Chua Jing Shi (2T21) and Sotomatsu Kumi (2T19) fought hard and managed to emerge 2nd and 3rd in the individual events 200 metre Butterfly Girls. Both the Boys’ and the Girls’ teams achieved overall 5th position. The CJ Swim team is definitely one that focuses not just on training, but also the spirit of friendship and camaraderie. Our team is closely bonded and although Swimming is an individual sport, we believe in encouraging one another to push on during hard times and excel during the A Division Swimming Championship. All this would not have been possible without the unwavering support we have received from our teachers-in-charge, Mr Nicholas Chia, Mr Zachary Kok, Mr Jeffery Ha, Ms Leow and Coach Carol for their guidance and mentorship. Special thanks to the 2015-2016 EXCO members for leading and showing us the ropes!

2016 has been rewarding and memorable for the CJC Symphonic Band (CJCSB) with a number of highlights. On 23 April, CJCSB held its very own concert, ‘Soundtracks’, at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. We played numerous famous pieces such as “How To Train Your Dragon” , “My Neighbour Totoro”, and many other notable pieces. The successful evening ended with the CJCSB performing “Japanese Graffiti XIV” as the encore piece. On 1st July, CJCSB repeated its performance of “Japanese Graffiti XIV” and the popular song “小幸运 ( A Little Happiness)” during the annual CJCelebrates. This concert ended with a combined performance by all the performing arts groups with the piece “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk The Moon. CJCSB also went on a five-day band exchange to Hong Kong from 28th November 2016 to 2nd December 2016. A total of 20 student participants and 2 teacher chaperons participated in two meaningful band exchanges, namely, with the Hong Kong Symphonic Band and the Hong Kong Baptist University Affiliated Secondary and Primary Schools (Secondary) (HKBUAS), where the band rehearsed pieces together under different conductors. During the trip, CJCSB performed in front of HKBUAS students in a lunchtime combined concert. All this would not have been possible without Mr Ignatius Goh, Mr Jason Kam, Ms Josephine Lin, Ms Wendy Heng and Mr Tan Thiam Hee. Their unwavering support and guidance were crucial in encouraging the CJCSB to do its best for every performance.

The CJC Tennis team comprises people with different backgrounds and levels of experience, coming together to form a team with a strong sense of camaraderie. We have court training sessions with physical training incorporated, twice a week, where we develop our skills, strokes, physical fitness and have match play. During the 2016 ‘A’ Division Championship, both teams successfully made it through to the quarterfinals once again. The Girls’ team defeated VJC, PJC and SRJC to get past the group stages and into the quarterfinals. Despite beating TJC in the quarterfinals, they subsequently lost to ACJC and RI. The Boys’ team defeated AJC, SJI(I) and ACS(Int’l) to get into the quarterfinals. However, they too fell short of the semifinals despite beating TPJC as they lost to ACJC and ACS(I). With both teams finishing top 8 in the ‘A’ Division tournament, it was a great and unforgettable experience for the team.

CJC Tenpin Bowling achieved a remarkable 5th placing for both the Boys’ and the Girls’ teams at the 2016 Bowling ‘A’ Division Championship. Although we are still a distance away from our aspirations, it is indeed an incredible feat to be seeded in both categories. CJ Bowling received one of the highest recruitments ever this year. Initially, the Bowling team began as a small and rather inexperienced squad. The task to train within 4 months and obtain good results was very daunting at first. But through sheer hard work and determination, we performed beyond our expectations during this season’s ‘A’ Division Championship. We are proud of our achievements, but have greater pride in playing our best game every time we hit the lanes. The CJC Bowling journey, where we build perseverance, mental strength and team spirit, is one which has struck a chord in our hearts.

The 2016 season saw the CJC Track & Field team attain highly commendable results at the various Track & Field competitions held throughout the year. In the buildup for the competition season, our athletes underwent rigorous training sessions to strengthen their mind and body, preparing themselves for the challenges that lay ahead. The season started off with the Singapore Athletics Association (SAA) Series 2 where our Boys’ team did well for the first race of the 2016 season. It showed that we had a chance to achieve big things this season, and we did go on to do so. In the 4x200m Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Relay Championships, the Boys’ relay team won bronze. Also, at the Singapore Youth and Junior Championships, the CJC team won 2 bronze medals in the 200m dash with Shahmee Ruzain and Benedict Kwok. The early success put us on track for glory at the National Schools Championships as our hunger grew. We had one of our best National Schools for the Boys’ team. Brian Loh of 1T29 won the silver at the games for the Boys’ Discus, pushing on the track athletes. Shahmee Ruzain of 1T09 sealed a historic sprint double in the competitive 100m and 200m dash, placing CJC Athletics in the spotlight. We did not just perform well individually, as the CJC 4x100m Boys’ team fought hard to achieve silver at the race for the fastest school in the ‘A’ Division. To sum it up, this season has proved that nothing is impossible. Singapore Youth & Junior Athletics Championships S Shahmee Ruzain 1T09 Benedict Kwok An 2T02

The vast green field and a great deal of running and sliding come to mind when one thinks of the team sport, Ultimate Frisbee. The CJ Ultimate team is characterised by full dedication and unwavering team spirit built by a training schedule of more than 4 hours each week. At 9 am every Saturday, they calibrated their catches and throws almost to perfection. Each friendly match played with other junior colleges gained them the much needed experience and pushed them to confront their strengths and weaknesses. Their tenacity and diligence culminated in the matches leading up to the highly-anticipated annual Inter-JC Ultimate Competition. Through successful dives, coordinated stacks, fervent calls of “up!” and successful pancake catches, the team managed a 9th place in overall standing. While there is no “me” in a team sport, there would always be one gem in the crowd. Effort and talent earned Ivan Ng Jia Jun (2T13) the title of “Mythical 7” during the Inter-JC Ultimate Competition, recognizing him as one of the most valuable players on court.

Every year, achieving excellence is the ultimate aim of the Catholic Junior College Volleyball Team. The burning passion we have for Volleyball has allowed us to persevere and stay determined even during the most physically-draining and mentally-demanding training sessions and has motivated us to always give our best in every match. Throughout the year, we participated regularly in friendly tournaments with other schools, culminating in the annual National Inter-School Volleyball Championships (A-Division). As a Volleyball family, we believe that supporting each other on and off the court is the key to growth. The team has made tremendous progress over the past year, reaching many milestones on this journey together as a family. Being a member of the team has taught us the true meaning of sportsmanship and teamwork - be it victory or defeat, we remain a team and we will never crumble.
