ln Veritate Et Caritate ln Truth and Love The college crest shows

the Holy Spirit symbolised by a dove and by fire.

ln CJC, we are inspired and guided by this Spirit of knowing and loving. The Star; taking the form of a stylised cross, is our symbol of faith. As

the star guided 'The Magi to Bethlehem', so too we, in CJC, are guided by faith in our daily lives.

The College motto 'ln Veritate et Caritate'

or'ln Truth and Love',

means

that our concern for man inspires our search for truth.

Vision CJC - a place

of excellence in learning and living

Mission Building a Generation: ln Truth & Love We cultivate in each young person the skills and attitude to embrace challenges wisely and courageously. We foster a community that cares

for the dignity of the young people, nurturing them to be men

and

women of compassion. We broaden their vision so that they become leaders committed to serve in faith and with integrity.

A Tribute to Our Principal, Brother Paul Rogers After eight very fruitful years, it is time for us to say goodbye and to wish our beloved Principal, Brother Paul Rogers, well as he moves on to lead De La Salle College, in Malvern, Melbourne, Australia. For those of you who were not familiar with Brother Paul before he came to CJC in December 2001, you would have wondered why the CJC Board went down-under to look for a principal. This Australian we have is more Singaporean than most of us Singaporeans in knowing how to compete and succeed.

During the last eight years, it would have been difficult for anyone not to have felt the impact that Brother Paul has had on the CJC community. As ydu walk around the college grounds, you would have noticed the many physical improvements he has made, most noticeably, the completion of the PerformingArts Centre and the renovation of the library. Right now a chapel is being built, the running track is being upgraded and a rock climbing wall is being erected, However, it is in the intangibles that his contributions have been really significant. What are some of these achievements? lt is really a litany of successes: During his term here, Brother Paul has achieved sterling academic results for CJC, the most important of which is to see the ranking of the college of 17 junior colleges. Resulting from this huge improvement, our students have begun to win prestigious government scholarships again after an absence of several years. rising from among the lowest in 2002 to the 10'h position currently out

Ihe teaching of the English Language is particularly impressive as the school is one of three schools chosen by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to be a centre for the teaching of English Language and Linguistics (ELL)starting from 2009.The college managed to garner 40o/o of the MOE scholarships available for students doing this course of study. The number of Catholic students increased from 160/oto28o/o during this period. Students from feeder schools also grew from2go/o to 49% giving the college a much stronger Catholic character.

ln sports and other co-curricular activities, the college previously excelled in very few areas but is now a top performer in Judo, Fencing, Shooting, Dance, Symphonic Band and Choir.

fte

college has developed a very strong leadership programme for all students. Every year about 600 students (75oh of each cohort) go overseas ;cr community service, focusing on helping very poor communities. Aiumni and parent involvement have gone up markedly during this period. More than half of the board menbers are now alumni. Annual alumni nnners and reunions have become the norm. Parent involvement has also increased primarily through the establishment of the Parent Support 3'oup. &,r,ay from the school, Brother Paul was also actively involved at the M0E level in curriculum desrgn and revision work. He was also involved in rec'uitment of teachers, scholarship panels and focus groups.

A[ tlire Singapore church level, Brother Paul was involved in the writing of the statutes of the recently established Archdiocesan Commission for [:drolic Schools (ACCS). The ACCS involves all the religious orders in Singapore at the highest level in the management of Catholic schools. fir-nttner Paul was selected by the religious orders to represent them. but what else do we know about him? He is very close to his students and it is amazing to hear him rattle of his ex- students and their characteristics. This shows how committed he is to his students. He also prepares his students for

He came to our shores in his early 40s mn is leaving as a 60 year old, but a very strong, sharp and active sexagenarian. We thank him especially for spending the best and productive uuam of his professional life in Singapore - eight years in CJC and six years in SJl. .$,s

The Ministry of Education in its move towards holistic education has broadened the definition of school success so that it is not skewed solely towards examination results. Schools that have attained commendable achievements in various categories are given awards under the Masterplan of Awards testifying to their exemplary school processes as well as excellent outcomes. 0ur College has 4 awards this year, attesting to the robust processes that have been put in place for the holistic development of our students.

Our cut off score for the 2009 cohort remained at 10 points for Science, 11 points for Humanities. However, the cohort quality appeared to get much stronger. More students with lower L1R5 scores chose CJC as their first choice school, and the percentage of Catholics in the College remained steady ar 27o/o whilst the number in our religion program is 29% of the cohort. Our affiliated students continue to provide approximately 50% of our enrolment each year and that appears to be a steady state. We have developed a strong base from which to grow the College.

Student Development ramme The,student Development (SD) Programme is a multi-dimensional approach to personal formation and character development for all students. lt aims t0 nurture students at the intra- and inter-personal levels, to equrp them ultimatey to serve with integrity in the social, national and global arenas. To this end, the SD Programme weaves together the components of the Home Tutorial, Personal & Social Skills, Civics/ Natronal Education and Ethics/ Religion Programmes.

Ihe Home Tutorial group assigned to each student aims to give them a sense of belonging. lt also provides them with a secure base from which to explore and develop personal talents, attitudes and resources to forge strong class ties and ignite the college sprrit. The atmosphere of acceptance, collegiality and cooperation fostered in

the Home Tutorial group makes it a safe place for students to further explore and understand themselves, others and the changing situations

A group of 11 lC1s, accompanied by two teachers, MrTeo Soon Hock

I

After arriving in Chennai, we set off on a 12 hour train ride to Tuticorin, our final destination. Tuticorin is a small seaside village by the Bay of Bengal, and many of its residents fish for a living. lt was on board the

train that we had our first taste of lndia, taking in the scenic views, and the friendliness of fellow passengers on board. We were given a warm welcome at St La Salle Higher Secondary School in Tuticorin by

the Brothers' community, teachers and students. We were

treated like celebrities there, as the students all wanted a handshake or an autograph from us. It was there also

that we would spend the next few days as teachers. This

initially worried us as we had no prior teaching experience. However,

we soon realised that our fears were unfounded as the enthusiasm of the students during lessons overwhelmed us. Seeing their energy and thirst for knowledge, we found ourselves looking back at the very

different learning experience back in Singapore schools. The students proved

to be extremely intelligent, taking quickly to the knowledge we

tried to impart to them. We taught some English, Mathematics, Science and Social Science classes and did our best to make the lessons as interesting and educational as possible through activities and games. We were very impressed by the dedication and love the Brothers had for the students. They were both disciplinarians and care givers. Our evening programs were just as enriching and humbling. We visited a nearby slum by the sea and a home for the disabled. The children were

lovial despite the little that they had. Out of the linle they had, they gave generously to us seashells from their own collection to welcome us. The

dedication of the local priests (both at the slum and the home

for the disabled) impressed us greatly, as they worked humbly and hard

to improve the lives of the people around them. What struck many of us the most was just how friendly the locals were

!

the La Salle Brothers, the students in the school and even people whom we met on the train or around the city made us feel very much at home. They were extremely forthcoming with their greetings, smiles and handshakes, and showed great interest in

The warm welcome by

Happiness can truly start with the simple things in life.

A poor Cambodian widow, who had injured her leg and could

not

work, expressed her utmost gratitude with a contented smile when we delivered to her a small sack of rice. We were impressed by the resilience

of the Cambodians as we visited floating villages and attended mass in a floating church on the very first day of our

trip. The rare opportunity eyes to their simple living condrtions. Their warmth chased away the shadows of materral

poverty and showed us how we can be happy with the simple things in

life. The children at the floating church scrambled

to greet the CIC team eagerly wrth flowers and the heartwarming sight marked the start of our 10-day Service Learning trip in Cambodia. The next day, we travelled to Battambang to embark on our Service

Learning project. All of us were rather apprehensive of the living conditions that we were going to be in for the next six dayslwhen we arrived in Don Bosco, Anduang Chenh Primary School, we slept under mosquito nets and acclimatized ourselves to the simple living conditions. Everyday, we pumped rainwater from the tap s0 that we would have enough to wash up. Over the next few days, the joy came surprisingly from simple gestures initiated by the students. Every morning, without

I

fail, students would stand in straight lines, with their hands clasped and placed near the chest and they would greet us enthusiastically with a 'Choom Reap S'were!'(which means'hello'in Khmer). As we served

the school by building a basketball court and painting murals in their ibrary, we drew other wonderful lessons from the trip. We learnt to ',vork together to complete the court for the children. lt was inspiring to see

the students intently absorbing the English words that we taught

Leadersh ip Trainino Camb JUNE 8

-

11

LTC was held from the 8,h till the 11,h of June this year at Diary Farm Adventure Centre in Bukit Timah. Prror to the camp, students had attended a briefing and a pre-camp session where they were split into

camp groups according to their CCA (clubs and societies, sports and games, Student Council, HTCs and PCCGs). There were a total of 15 groups, 3 groups per CCA. They had gotten

to know the people whom

they were going to spend 4 days and 3 nights with, and also completed

a pre-camp reflection where they penned down their thoughts about leadersh ip.

0n the first day of the camp, students reported to school at 7:40am in their full school uniform and tie for the flag raising ceremony and attendance taking. Afterwards, they proceeded to the auditorium for the opening ceremony. The Dean, Mr Tan Jek Suan made a speech, and the theme of this year's LTC, "As one, with integrity, for service" was explarned along with the meaning of the flame on the back of the LTC t-shirt. Next was a leadership workshop, which varied according

to CCA because different CCAs needed different skills to face different challenges. The workshop for clubs and societies was held in the auditorium. The students were asked to write down some of the goals they wanted their CCA to achieve, and some points for improvement

on their own leadership. They learned that everyone has a different working style, and took a test to find out what kind of style they had (similar to the Tetra mapping done school wide). Based on the results (Peacock, Owl, Hawk or Dove), they were split into 4 groups and given hypothetical situations in which they would have to learn how to deal with different personality types and resolve conflicts.

After lunch the student leaders changed into their PE attire for

the afternoon activities

-

games that focused on listening and communication skills. By the time the games ended, it was almost time to go to the campsite, Diary Farm Adventure Centre. Brother Paul made a speech to the students before they left, saying that he hoped they would face their fears over the next two days and learn more about leadership.


Over the next

two days of the carnp, seven groups went on the Amazing

for the confidence course, comprising the challenge rope course, the zip line, the pole jump, abseiling and low elements. lt was a great challenge to most people While some had done these thrngs before, they still had to cope with the initial Race and eight stayed behind

fear of being so high above the ground. Group members bonded by cheering for their friends, and learned how to strategize when trytng to make their way through the obstacle course.The next event, called Rescue, trained students on coming up with strategies and making snap decislons in order not to waste time and money. After dinner everyone did a questionnaire known as Belbin's Team Roles Questionnaire that gave students a chance to think about how they had helped the team in the camp so far. Early next morning after breakfast, the buses took the students back to schoolwhere they were once again split into different CCA groups

for target setting. The camp ended with the closing ceremony in the auditorium. After the students took their seats, a fire was

lit Brother

Paul made a speech once again about the theme of the camp

The

atmosphere lightened when FSV showed an entertaining video of the camp. Brother Paul gave out tokens of appreciation to the student facilitators and teachers-in-charge. The teachers-in-charge also passeci out indlvidual assessment forms to the students, who had been assessed on their strengths and weaknesses throughout the camp

The LTC was really an enjoyable experience that allowed complete strangers to bond with each other and motivated student leaders to bring their ccA and their classes to greater heights with the skills they had learnt.

Mt Agung Volcano: the tallest volcano in Bali, the second greatest eruption in South-East Asia in the past 50 years. Mt Tambora Volcano: the tallest volcano in Sumbawa, the greatest eruption rn the past 1 0,000 years.

3)

Mt Batur Volcano: the most active volcano in Bali, remnant of the largest volcanic eruption in the past 25,000 years.

"We run run everywherg climb climb everythere, others say we're crazy, but ,ve say we're so lucky! !". . .these are the first 2 lines of our ODAC song. Cur plane left Changi Airport on the evening of 6'h December for Bali. 3ur guide drove us to the base of Agung Volcano, where we made :.rr final preparation before the climb at midnight. The journey up Mt agung was tough and arduous. Using our torches, we endured and tried :: enjoy the 4 long hours of uphill climb without much rest in between. :s we could not really see much at night, all we told ourselves was just ' ,'iALK". There were some obstacle points where we had to negotiate

::

ioose rocks, slippery volcanic soil and fallen trees carefully.

--:

final one hour felt like we were on a totally different mountain. lt all barren volcanic rocks with occasional edelweiss plants on the :-:,rd. As we kept climbing towards the crater rim of the volcano, rrE ,','ere met with winds that were howling and blowing at us at high ,;ed, occasionally sweeping us off balance till we were on all fours. --r sky slowly revealed the colours of dawn as we held hands and :r-:,ed the strong winds towards the summit.When we reached the top :r'l,tAgung (3142n above sea level), we felt a tinge of disappointment ,,,=s

re=,se the only thing we could see were thick white clouds. We spent , ':,', minutes on the roof of Bali, but it really felt like we were on a

f'-rl,-r mountain in the high Andes instead. 0ur descent was fast and it-E , â&#x201A;Ź,,v was scenic as the clouds cleared to reveal the island of Bali.

The journey

to our next mountain, Tambora Volcano, took us 24 hours over land and sea. Our van brought us to the jetty on the east of Bali island and we drove into a giant ferry together with other trucks and buses. The ferry

took 5 hours to cross the Lombok Straits while we

slept on the benches at the back. The van drove out of the ferry into the island of Lombok, the land of the Sasak people. We had to take another

another ferry to reach the island of Sumbawa that is larger than both Bali and Lombok combined. There is only one main road across the whole island. From the windows of our van, we hardly saw any trees or villages, the landscape looked very sparse and dry. 0ur van was often the only vehicle on the main road. This island felt like a far away land of another country though it was only a 2 hour ferry ride away. We had our rest stop along the coast: some of us walked on the black sand beaches while others walked towards the mangrove forest where hundreds of small fiddler crabs on the beach greeted us by waving their huge pincers. We waved to villagers that we passed by. We saw many people just sitting by the side of the road outside their house, doing nothing and watching cars go by. Then oops, our van had a flat tyre. We took a walk to a small village while our driver fixed the wheel. There we met a family sitting outside their house. The mother could speak some English and we soon discovered why. She told us she had worked as a domestic maid in Malaysia for 5 years and the money she earned was saved up to build this house and support the family, This encounter left a deep impact in us, Two hours later, we met a teacher, MrTaqie. He was so happy to see us and wanted so much to bring us to his school just for his students to practise speaking English, because they simply had no opportunity in this little known island of Sumbawa. MrTaqie invited us

to his house for tea and told us that this was the second time he had to build his house as the first was completely destroyed by an earthquake last year. Looking at the good life and opportunities we Singaporeans have, we realised we should not complain about small things because it really makes us look small. It was still a very long way to Tambora Volcano, situated at the northern

tip of Sumbawa island. We reached a junction at Dompu town,

had

lunch and then travelled north along a road less travelled. lt was near sunset, and we had been travelling since sunrise. Now the road became extremely bumpy and finally we caught a glimpse of the great Tambora Volcano from far. We were awestruck by her sheer size, and her big flat

think we are all aware that poverty exists in every society. However, even

with the knowledge, we tend to externalize this problem since it does not affect us. Hence even knowing that the money we spend is hard earned, we still spend it frivolously.

many, including mysell due to the stark difference in lifestyles of people

en House JANUARY 9

The college opened its doors

to Secondary

4 students of 2008 from

various schools all over Singapore so that they could get first hand glimpses of life in CJC.They collected their goodie bags from a counter

at the foyer and started to browse the many booths spread over the campus just almost everywhere

-

the auditorium, auditorium extension,

quadrangle, lecture theatres, corridors, grandstand, field, foyer. They

il

had two hours to make their inquiries about the college at the booths before proceeding to the PAC at 3pm for a talk by Brother Paul, as wel as a concert showcasing the performing talents of the school.

Brother Paul talked about how the theme of this year's 0pen House, Panorama: Expandrng your Hoilzons, was

a road of discovery.

He

also gave the students in the PAC some guidelines on making good decisrons about their tertiary education. The students also learnt more

about the co lege's curriculum which aims to develop CJCians who are all-rounded, participating in many activities but still managing to keep

their studies in the centre of their life, studying hard and scoring well, Finally, Brother Paul ended off by summarizing what junior college would

be. lt would be a place of challenge, where one grows and experiences

companionship and belonging. The CJC Symphonic Band, the lndian Cultural Society, the Gurtar Ensemble, the Choir and the Dance Club then took turns to put up impressive performances that showed our guests s0me of the CCAs offered by the college. The day ended with Bhangra dance and a mass dance outside the PAC.

Parent-Teacher

Meetings JANUARY 20.21, FEBRUARY 16-18, JULY 25 Parent-teacher meetings were held regularly so that our teachers and the parents of their students could maintain a dialogue concerning the progress of the students.

Ihe first Parent Teacher Meeting (PTN4) for JC2 students of 2009 was held over two days, on the 20th and 2 1't of January. After the opening prayer, Brother Paul started by introducing the rationale for having a parent teacher meeting so early in the year, just two weeks into school. lnformation was given to the parents about the academic life of a JC2 student, ln particulal, Brother Paul spoke strongly about pressure and

time management, noting the A' Division competition timings and how CCA would be stepped up in Term 2. Next we had the parents Support Group (PSG), where we had three parent volunteers, Anna Leong, David Soon and Clara Soon who gave us an overview of the mission of the PSG

and what do they do.

first PTN,4 for the JC1 students held in February was organised to provide their parents with information about the school calendar and curricuium and the expectations of the college. Parents were also given the opportunity to interact with their child's home tutor The

The 3'd PTM in July was held after the mid-year examinations to enable home tutors to discuss the progress of their students with their parents.


JCl Orientation FEBRUARY 2-7

The JC1 Orientation programme was a week of activities

to

initiate

0ur new students into our college system and to make them part of the college family. The theme for this year was: 'Fotizo', which means

'to be enlightened or to illuminate'and was inspired by the upcoming Youth 0lympic Games in 2010, as the Olympics originated in Greece and people often associate it with a lighted torch. According to the Student Councrl, the main aims of this year's orientation

were to foster strong bonds between the students, to equip them with skills to face the future and, most importantly, to impart to them the

spirit of CJC and to emphasise on the theme for this academ c year: working together in integrity and love, The first day of the Orientation was mainly

to enable the students to be familiar with the school and to know one another in their different lG groups which they were allocated to.

On the second day, all the students and lGs were introduced to the different houses: Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite, Hestia, Dionysus and Athena. The different houses introduced themselves by putting up highly entertaining skits. The next few days were filled with engagrng activities, which ranged from ice breaker games, to dragon boating at Kallang, t0 attending the CCA showcase in our school itsell On the

5rh

day, students were separated from the lGs and split into their different

to their subject combinations. The main games that were played were icebreakers aimed at bonding the class together. To help them get to know each other better, all the students went out of classes according

schooi to Hort Park where they took part in an Amazrng Race. The finale

Brother Paul then addressed the audience, beginning with a poem that was intended as a reflection of the year that has just ended and a glimpse into what the future holds for us. The poem also reminded us that the students are who we are serving and that we "touch the hearts of our future" in what we do. Brother Paul next proceeded t0 present the Long Service Award to various staff members. Brother Paul also announced the names of staff members who had just been married and thanked staff members, who will be leaving the college at the end of thrs year, for serving our college. He then resumed his speech, expressing his confidence in the incoming Principal, Mrs Christine Kong. He also

to the Board for its continuous support of him through the various challenges over the years. He paid tribute to the EAS staff for their dedication and work that does not always get recognised. Finally, he praised all the teachers for being professional and adapting to changes as they come. Also, he thanked them all for expressed his appreciation

the support given to him over the years.

At the end of

Brother Paul's speech, the presentation

of

the

Outstanding Contribution Award was held. The lndividual Award went to IVls Norhayati Bte Awang for her contribution to Project Work while the Team Award was won by two teams: the NE Committee for their contributron towards National Education, and the PE Department for

their contribution in the reduction of students' latecoming. A special award, the Outstanding Service Award, was given to Mr Govindan S/O Thiyagarajah for the high quality of his service as

and being an invaluable help to all staff. The evening's programme continued with a Cha Cha dance item by a group of teachers and it was a performance that left the crowd calling

for an encore, Table games had the staff vying for the prizes.

Brother Paul, however; had the last word as he took the stage to thank Mr Lee but also to credit the teachers for all the achievements that Mr Lee had attributed to him, "The Principal might get the credit, but you teachers deserve it", to quote Brother. A special tribute to Brother Paul followed, comprising two items. The first was a poem, written by Mr Casimir Kang and performed by Mr Eugene Yeow, that was a tonguein-cheek look at the impact Brother Paul has had on the college and ended on a poignant note of farewell. The second item was an amusing lrish Drinking Song performed by MissValerie Baptist, MrAaron Rajoo, Mr Eugene Yeow and Mr Mark

The Chairman of our Board of Management, Mr Gerad Lee, next addressed the audience. He began by thanking the teachers for an "extraordinary year every year". He also thanked Brother Paul for his impact on the college, for both the intangible and tangible improvements, and cited his key achievements as the Prrncipal of CJC. As an end to his speech, Mr Lee proposed a toast to Brother Paul, which evolved into a rousing, traditional "Yum Seng".

When allstudents had settled attheir respective round tables in groups of ten, Brother Paul went 0n stage to give a speech just before dinner

was served. His speech was short, humorous but to the pornt, as he encouraged students to enjoy themselves before wishing them all the best for the A Level results. He then handed the mike over to the emcee

who divided the ballroom into two sections, Team A on the right and Team B on the left. This was done to facilitate the activities and games that were carried out over the course of the night, in between the meals.

Basketball Year 2009 was sensational

for

CJ Basketball. The weekly training,

coupled with friendly matches and tournaments, have churned out

25 healthy and skillful basketball players. The highlighu of 2009 are

the CJC Open House, the N/alaysia Basketball trip, the

tournament, the inter-class basketball tournament, and the Free Throw C

hallenge.

Firstly, we put on a spectacular basketball dance performance during

the CJC Open House. Led by Philip and Augustine, this was a chance for everyone to showcase their creativity as we crafted our dancing skills and mixed it with basketball skills. The roar of the crowd after our

performance showed that the hard work we put in t0 prepare this was not to wasted. Secondly, we went on a basketball holidays of 2009

trip to l\4alacca during the l\/arch

to hone our skills before the A' Division tournament,

The 3 day event consisted of 3 basketball matches and sightseeing.

We played against teams from 3 Malaysian schools. Everyone had an opportunity to play and learnt a great deal from our overseas cou nterpa rts,

Thirdly, the main events

the lnvitational friendly matches, it was the first-ever basketball

match for many of us. Despite our lack of experience, we still displayed

qualities of resilience, courage, and teamwork For the

A'

Division tournament,

the A Division basketball team put up

a valiant effort against all the schools we were matched with. Despite a high mountain to climb, we soared to great heights in our tumultuous journey, and we learnt about discipline, determination and teamwork. We organized a Free throw challenge for our members in May to hone

our skills in free throw. '12

out of 36

classes participated in this year's lnterclass basketball

competition over 3 CCA days. The organization of this event involved

the entire basketball team and this helped foster our team spirit. The event also gave classes an opportunrty to gel together and showcase their basketball skills. lt also generated greater interest in basketball in the JC'1 students.

in Bowlin

From the very beginning, 2009 marked yet another eventful year for

the CJC Tenpin Bowling Team. The year kicked off with the CCA Bazaar, during which we actively promoted Tenpin Bowling as a CCA. After a few weeks of selection trials, the available places were snapped up by the eager J1s as we achieved full enrolment.

We trained twice a week at the Civil Service Club at Bukit Batok, intensifying the number of training sessions as competitions such as the lnter-School Friendly Bowl with National Junior College and Vrctoria lunior College and the Nationals drew closer. 15 bowlers were seiected for the lnter-school Friendly Bowl so as t0 prepare them both mentally and physically for the Nationals. All of them doubled their efforts during training and put up a fierce fight during the Friendly Bowl. Soon after, trainrng intensi{ied to three times weekly as we upped gear

to prepare for the stiff competition that we expected to face during the Nationals. Our coaches, Uncle Denny and Coach Ken, as well as our teachers-in-charge, did all they could to prepare us mentally and physically for the competition as many of the bowlers had not participated in major tournaments before. The 16'h National Schools Tenpln Bowling Championship soon arrived

and although our bowlers were filled with nervous anticipation, they gave all that they could out on the lanes. Led by our Exco student leaders, the bowling team kept the CJC flag flying high. The boys dtd us proud by improving their overall ranking by one posrtion

6r' place while the girls attained the overall

to achieve Bth. With both the Girls'

and the Boys' teams bowling simultaneously during the Nationals, we cheered passionately for one another across the lanes and the CJC spirit was evident. Each competition day drew the team closer together as words of encouragement and the CJC cheer bonded the team in

spirit and strength, Although we did not achieve our target rankings, the overall experience was far more enriching and the strong bonds forged during this journey knitted the team as one.

All in all, it has been a highly fruitful and fulfilling year for the

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." With this

,F-

quote in mind, the CJC Cross-Country team gave their best, in training

and races throughout the year of 2009. Training started as early as November last year to prepare our athletes for the next season. A variety of training methods that included plyometrics training and hill

training were also included to improve the physical condition of our athletes. During these sessions, our athletes were always encouraging

and pushing each other on, displaying that long distance running

is

indeed a team sport. The CJC Athletics had organized the CJC Olympic Relay, a competition

t0 encou(a$ the quqrls in CIC to (un as a

c\ass and

to sqead fhe

Olympic values to them. Attractive prizes were given out to the winners

and there were even goodie bags for every participant. A Dress-up competition was also organized to encourage those not running to take part in the event t0 cheer their classmates on. Apart from training, our athletes also participated in various c0mpetitions

such as the SAA Cross- Country Competition 2009 and Wings CrossCountry Competition 2009 to get a feel of competition and to see their standards at that point in time. These competitions were also used as a wake-up callfor the team to work harder and to strive further than they already have. lt was also used to accustom the team to the uneven gravel terrain that they have to run on for the main event - The National I

nter-School Cross-Country Championships.

The 50'h National Inter-School Cross-Country Championships was held

at Bedok reservoir for the first time. The terrain and the endless view of the route had made it both physically and mentally demanding.

(lnternationalDance) Gold "We are dancing not because we are good at it, but because we love

to dance." That was how our choreographer, Mr.

Ryan Tan, inspired us

and pushed us to greater heights.

ln 2009, the club amazed the school audience with various internal performances such as CJC Open House, CJC Orientation CCA Bazaar, Chinese New Year Celebration and Teacher's Day Celebration. Through

these performances, we not 0nly learnt how to choreograph on our own, but also how to treat one another with respect, forging stronger bonds within the club We have also grown so much through exposure

to a great variety of dance genres such as Reggae, Locking, Breaking and Street Jazz.

The club participated in the Singapore Youth Festival 2009 Central Judging (lnternational Dance) and attained the Gold award. Achieving

this prestigious award definitely did not come easy for us. We started train ing f rom Novem ber 2008 by lea rn

that were accompanied by toning exercises. Ihrough vigorous physical training such as running, we improved our stamina, which was vital

for a flawless execution of the choreography The endless practices were tough for us. However, we fed off one another's commitment and perseverance, and encouraged one another

to give our fullest at

each

rehearsal. The Gold award has made our hard work and perseverance

worthwhile as we did not let down the people who have journeyed

with

us.

of our teachers-in-charge, N/ldm Phang Swee Eng, Mrs Felicia Koh and Miss Lee Ngern Sim, and of course, our choreographer lVr. Ryan Ian, 2009 has been an enriching and fun-filled year for us as we not only fostered new friendships but also kept our passion for dance alive. Just as Vicki Baum said, "There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them", We are proud to say that being part of the CJC Dance Club has brought us much joy and happiness in our time at CJC,

Bailing failing financial institutions, veto votes in the United Nations, moratoriums on whaling and even Obama - these were among the many

Club's Orientation This year's orientation for the JC'ls saw the JC2 editorial members

challenging

the newly inducted JC 1s to put their

investigative

journalism skills to the test. The JC1 reporters were given an hour to identify an individual of interest in the course of their walk about the college, interview the student and prepare a write up on the interview

conducted. All in all, the juniors had a fun hands-on experience in writing their first artrcle and gained an insight into what was required of them as members of the Editorial Club and as journalists.

the basic requirements of writing an article, as well as prepare the juniors for the various writing tasks that were to come in the course of the year. lce breakers were also conducted to allow the JCls to familiarise themselves with their seniors. i

Guitar Ensemble 28th April 2009 was an important day for the CJC Guitar Ensemble. Months of preparation, hard work and effort had been put in by the ensemble members for our third attempt at the biennial Singapore

Youth Festival Central Judging Competition (SYF). After a nervewracking performance of two songs, the classical A Little Night Music and a Russian song Katioucha, we clinched a Bronze award. Although it was not our ideal achievement, we resolved to improve and perform better at the next competition.

About a week after the SYF competition, we showcased our skills at the SYF Presenfs concert held at our college's Performing Arts Centre.

It was a prime opportunrty for our friends and family to witness our progress as guitarists. lt was also the first time the whole ensemble performed together. The many hours spent practising with one another provided ample chances for the J2s and the J'ls to bond and strengthen friendships within the CCA. On the 3'd and 4'h of July, we held our annual Guitar Camp. During the camp, we had intensive practices in order to boost the quality of our performances for the upcoming mini concert-cum-handover in the second week of July. ln between practices, we found time to play games

where the senior and junior guitarists had fun while interacting with each other. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and the camaraderie shared

was an unforgettable experience for all.

Our next goal is the much anticipated concert in July 2010. We have already started practising in order to put in our best effort during the

concert. The year has been an exciting and fruitful one so far The performances have given us plenty of experience and the numerous practices have allowed us to hone.our skills in playing the guitar and

ic

build rapport and strong bonds with one another The mini concert-cum-handover ceremony took place on 1Oth July in LT2. lt was the final moment where the whole ensemble performed

together before the JC2 guitarists officially leave the CCA. The miniconcert, attended by several invited alumni and the members of the ensemble, featured 10 ensemble pieces, a very entertaining solo piece

is a first for the ensemble. They were t0 be a part of the team that would be entering the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) competition along with the J2s. This was followed by a recruitment drive for experienced J'1 players

during CCA bazaar.

The period that followed was an intense one as we prepared ourselves

for the competition. There were scores to be memorized, costumes to be fitted and new J1 players

to integrate into the performing group. lt

was fining that we were allowed to move to our own new room during

this period, allowing us to have more frequent practices. On the 2'l't of April, we competed at the SYF and were awarded

Hockey Ihe CJC 09 hockey team saw a shift in training regimen , migrating from more static drills to more dynamic fluid type trarning. Through 0ur present coach, Mr Robin Tan's efforts the team has managed to almost scientifically, take short corners and initiate plays. This very same discipline has allowed both the girls and the boys to improve the quality

of hockey in

CJC.

Our regular training at Old PA and frequent pitch

matches made an impact on both fltness and skill levels. The hockey camp in the lVarch holidays aliowed players to work on their skils as we I as team play. The season started out on a bad note with the boys losing to Pioneer JC, thus putting pressure on them to get better results for the remainder of the season. Ihe boys met the cha lenge, beatlng Anderson JC 2-1 and drawrng with hockey stalwart SAJC 2-2. Both games were characterized by gritty defending and much spirit as the team had to fight back in both games to garner the results. We moved on to the second round with powerhouses like RJC and VJC. The frrst match against RJC saw us go down 4-0; however, we fought hard

through injuries to earn the respect of the champions. The next playoff againstVJC was a do or die matth; we needed a clear win to advance to the last 4, The team came back from a goal down to draw the match

but it was not enough to confirm a top 4 berth, However, this year's performance has been the best over the last

B years, The

girls' team. was

in a very tough grouping with SAJC, RJC and lJC. We lost all matches; however, the quality of play has definitely improved over the last 4 years. With continued training and able leadership CJ Hockey aims to

break into the top 4 next year.

lnteract Club The CJC lnteract Club's theme for 2009 is RILOVE]ution from within. The aim is that the lnteractors continue to draw on their compassion to help the needy and introduce positive changes. lt was an eventful and challenging year for them as they implemented meaningful projects, at home and abroad, for the underprivileged in the midst of the economic recession,

Expansion of Community Service Location ln addition to our existing CIP locations like Queenstown Care Cornel Beyond Social Service Centre, Toa Payoh Care Corner Family Service Centre, Asian Women Welfare Association and Singapore Action Group

of Elders, we have expanded our locations to include KKWomen's and Children's Hospital and Lee Ah N4oi 0ld Age Home. With an increase in the membership number, the CJC lnteract Club is able to contribute more effectively to more diverse groups, allowing our members to acquire varied inter-personal skrlls in catering to the needs of the elderly and the young. Besides participating in our weekly ClP, we were also actively involved

in several ad-hoc CIP projects. Some of these included a visit to the Singapore Christian Home for the Aged on 21't January 2009, which gave us the opportunity to spread some festive cheer to the elderly just before Chinese New Year. CJC lnteractors have also taken up the role of instructors to teach groups of elderly basic computing skills at SAGE.

School-based Fundraising Piojects Another major part of the CJC lnteract Club's activities included schoolbased projects to raise funds for the under-privileged in society. We initiated the "Small Change, Big Change" and "Share-a-meal" projects

for the CJC Needy Students' Fund. The CJC lnteractors also embarked on a Mass Drive within the College to raise funds for the Cambodians to fund their water sanitation project. The lnteract Club is truly grateful for the enthusiastic response shown by the school community in spite of the difficult times.

lnter-Club Projects

,,

Apart from these activities, the lnteract Club also collaborated with

other schools to serve the community. The CJC lnteractors initiated the project "Grin with Green" and collaborated with ACS(|).0n 15,h February 2009, we brought a group of elderly and underprivileged children to Singapore Botanical Gardens to raise their environmental awareness and promote interaction between them. It has indeed been a fruitful year for the CJC lnteract Club. 0ur projects have helped to make a difference to the lives of the less fortunate during this difficult period, With more members this year, we hope to extend our reach to serve the global community.

The first lesson many

of us learned the first time we stepped onto the

dojo mats was this: if you fall, no matter how hard the fall, always pick yourself up and keep fighting. And that, in essence, is the spirit of CJudo. Our efforts have been rewarded by bagging numerous medals

throughout the year in various c0mpetiti0ns. The year 2009 saw a flurry

of gruelling training camps and morning

runs as we prepared for the upcoming competitions. Compared to our competitors who had 4-6 years of experience, the majority of the Boys' team and the entire Girls' team comprised those who had never even worn a Judo Gi before in their lives. Facing tough competition, we knew

we had to give our blood, sweat and copious amounts of deep heat to be prepared for competition.

Lawn Bowls 'Lawn bowls is not a mere garne, but a test of mental strength and stamina', This represents the values of lawn bowls. We were able to successfully draw about fifteen students from the JC 1 cohort via CJC's Open House, thus laying the foundation for another fruitful year

New members in the team honed their skills with the assistance of our coaches on Wednesdays and Saturdays and it is no surprise that CJC has become the key feeder College producing capable competitors

for the Singapore NationalTeam. On the local competition scene, the members of the team managed to do the College proud in the nattonal events in 2009 such as the National Singles and Doubles Tournaments. The College lawn bowls team clinched the overall championship for

both male and female categories in the National Singles and

Pairs

under 21 Tournament. Beyond the competitive spirit and achievements, one of the highlights

of the CCA this year was the annual Lawn Bowls

Enrichment

Programme. This year the enrichment programme attempted

to infuse

Youth Olympic Games'spirit and values such as'connecting to the game and community' into the activity. The game was introduced to invited friends and families who had no lawn bowls background. The

in-house competition organised as part of the enrichment actrvity emphasised values such as 'fair play', increasing enthusiasm among the participants,

In retrospect, CJC Lawn gowli has indeed gained recognition

and

status. Keeping in mind the experiential journey and treasuring the deep friendships forged, the lawn bowls team members look forward

t0 even greater aspirations and successful endeavours as they ernbark on a new journey in 2010.

We always find God in the most unlikely of places.

After allthe events that CJC's Legion of Mary has organized this past year, that is probably the one thought that has remained with all of With that in mind, let us take a look at what the Legion has been through across 2009, most of which were more than just about prayer us.

- something which many often mrstake the Legion to be merely all about. ln conjunction with the regular meetings held every Thursday afternoon at the Prayer Room, this year, we organized a series of dialogue sessions

entrtled A Life in the Faith, exploring different aspects of the Catholic

faith tradition. The issues covered were along the lines of Discernment and the role of Mary in the Catholic Church. As serious as these sessions

sounded, the invited speakers, Brother Emmanuel and Father David Garcia, dealt with the issues in such a light-hearted manner that the

little Prayer Room was filled with laughterl Another highlight was our Annual Retreat. This year's retreat was done

Music Ministry i :=

a

The [,4usic Ministry was started in 2009 by Mr.Aaron Rajoo. lts purpose is

::j

to serve the schoolfor any event (Catholic/Christian)through music.

We serve mainly at morning mass every l\,4onday, Wednesday and Friday,

=+

as well as during any major Catholic events in college. We also aim to provrde youths

=

with a platform to express themselves through music.

The Music Ministry is also a CCA which allows students to connect with

their faith more effectively through music on a fortnightly basis. As the pioneer batch, starting a CCA from scratch was not easy but it

definitely was a most fruitful experience. ln order for the ministry to function, having not just talented but passionate musicians was vital. Thankfully, CJC has no lack in that department; many students were enthusiastic about being a part of the ministry. On top of that, Mr Rajoo belreves in giving everyone the freedom to voice their opinions (even if

it means contradrcting him) allowing us to have a feeling of ownership of the mrnistry. These were the two main factors that led to the quick initial growth of the ministry. Eventually, everyone's strength became the foundatron of the mintstry.

*

-

Each individual offered whatever he/she could, and as one contributed

to the college. That was displayed during the Ascension of the Lord mass held in school on the 21't May. lt was the first time the college had a chance to witness the ministry serve as one.

The Musrc Ministry established itself as

the sense of achievement is great when they are finally

Physical Training "Someday

Wake up where the clouds are far behind me" The physical training aspect is seen by many others outside of the CCA

as bordering on the insane. But in order to reach beyond the clouds, one needs to work hard at it. Many join ODAC not having been blessed with physical prowess, but the morning runs, long runs, grandstand intervals, pull-ups, and the extra effort put into conditroning themselves

Expeditions l:a

"Where trouble melts lrke lemon drops High above the chimney iops that's where you'll find me"

Expeditions, both local and overseas, are an inseparable part of the 0DAC experience. The Overseas expeditions take place 3-4 times a year and the planning, preparation, liaising and execution are undertaken by the students. The learning curve is a steep one but our attitude determines our altitude and rn order to ascend high above the chrmney tops, a "cann0t also must can" attitude is a must. The first expedition is the March XP, which is the only expedition where

both the JC2s and JCls are present in fullforce. lt is also the expedition is wholly planned by the JC2s as a "present" to their junrors and it sets the tone, standards and expectations of being an ODACeT for the

that

JC 1s. This March XP, 0DAC climbed Gunung Angsi on the first morning followed by Gunung Datok that same night. The next day saw ODAC reach the summit of Gunung Ledang (Mt 0phir) and Gunung Lambak

on the third day. The highlight of the XP was perhaps the waterfall at Kota Tinggi on the last day, a refreshing way to end an eventful expedition.

Due

to the H'lN1 situation, the June XP was conducted

within

Singapore. Despite this setback, the expedition was a challenging learning experience for all. The first two days saw ODAC traverse around

Rugby

=l

Year 2009 started out for the rugby team as one full of excitement and challenges. After coming off from the previous year's high of obtaining the Plate Championships, the team knew that marntaining this position

was going to be a tall order. As such, trainrng started long before the school term began. The dedicated coaches made time to come down thrice a week to train the team. Over the course

of

2009, our coaches

planned many frrendly matches with various teams like Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic, all of which were held to expose us to strong competition. CJC showed remarkable grit as we took on these challenges with a relish.

A camp was organized in March to integrate the newly arrived

J

1s into

the team. lt was a grueling experience rn which the team went through hell together and came back stronger and more united than ever to take on the Police Cup A' Division Competiton. We were up against traditional powerhouses like ACJC and SAJC and knowing that the road ahead would be a tough one, training was on five times a week. Our first match against PJC went awry but the team managed to get past the disappointments and we focused our energies

on the next big match which was SAJC. We knew that we had to beat Hwa Chong and

N,4l

in order to qualify for the semi-finals. The team

rallied together and did what we had to do, resulting in us progressing

to the semis.Our next match was against our old arch-nemesis, JJC. Tensions and anxiety ran high as both teams knew that failure was not an option and only one team could prevail. ln the end, JJC came out top and it was a particularly painful moment for the team as we knew we could no longer maintain our previous position. In the end we

emerged as Plate Second runners-up after beating ACS lnternationai. We may have lost the position but we will never lose the strong b0nds

forged amongst the team and the memories of the trmes we hac together.

2009 marked a successful year for CJC Shooting Club, with our shooters achieving unprecedented results. The club's prestige is brought to yet another higher level. Ihe enthusiastic J2 shooters, under the gurdance of our Coach, lVr Victor Lee, emerged as a team that embodies the spirit

of true shooters- determination and perseverance. Through sheer hard

work and commitment, we have proved ourselves capable of posing a credible threat t0 our competitors. The Club has thus, set greater expectations to be met by its following batches. Since this was the first year that the National Championships was

brought forward, this meant that our shooters had much a shorter time for training. Nevertheless, our performances at competitions were not the least disappointing, as our shooters rose to the challenge

Symphonic Band Amidst the festivities, the Band marked 2009 with a combinec band Christmas concert, Harmonie // - with Anderson Junior Colege Symphonic Band on the 6ih of lanuary. Underthe baton of our residen: conductor, Mr Alvin Seville, our preparations began last year and carr ec

on rightthrough the Decemberschool holidays and we enjoyed a nigh. of fantast'c music-rnaking,

Up till 5r'of N/ay 2009, we practiced diligently for the SyF Centra Judging. Hours of tedious hard work were put into the competition anc countless sacrifices were made by the members to achieve their besi Though initialiy skeptical that we would be able to play at the standarc required of our choice piece, we faced the challenge head on, lVan,, grew from this gruelling experience both musically and personally, On the actual day of competition the Band was only given a limitec time on stage to shine and we did. The intensity of our performance captured both the judges and the audience's attention. Our choice piece: /n the Sprrng, at the ttme when Kings go off to War, composec by David Holsinger was no easy feat to master and perform. Based or

a bibiical verse from King David, the piece brings both the performe. and the audience on a roller-coaster ride of emotions. The Band was awarded the'Gold with Honours', the highest award of the SyF Cenrra

W.,

ry

Judging of Concert Bands. ln that instant, the hours, the sweat, the tears and the turmoilwhich the Band endured paled in comparison to the euphoria experienced upon receiving the competition result.

Ihe arduous journey that the Band had been through too soon carne to a close for the J2s as the date for the lnvestrture drew closer. The J i s put in much effort in organizing the fareweil ceremony for the J2s. The bestowals of responsibilities and leadership roles on the J1s markec the end of the J2s' journey in the Band. With the handing over of the ieadership roles, the J 1s had big shoes to fill as they embarked on a ne\\

journey to bring the Band to greater heights and to soar musically.

*ffiF:rgrf;er*e

"*st

Our band has travelled far to be what it is today. The footprints tha, our predecessors have left will lead the current members to believe in themselves and what they can achieve as a team. Though the path to success is never easy, the dedication of the Band and their conductor to music-making should lead t0 greater success. 6 lanuary

Track and Field 2009 has been a nostalgic and extremely wonderful year for

CJC

Athletics. With our major competition, the National Inter-School Track & Field Championships, being pushed 3 months earlier, preparations

had to start right away. Despite the large change in the season's schedule, the team made do with what time was left and showed great resilience, as well as strength mentally, physically and even emotionally.

All our teachers-in-charge put in great effort to make amendments to our training schedule and programs so that the team could train more effectively. As a result, the team was rewarded with tremendous improvements and achievements in the numerous competitions prior

to the

Nationals. Such commendable results were seen in the SAA

Allcomers Meet and SAA Singapore JuniorAthletics Meet.

Apart from running, the team organized events for the school to raise the awareness of the Olympics among the students. Such events like the CJC Olympic Relay (Annual X-Campus Relay), which brought together

the classes in CJC to compete in our very own road relay, were also a platform for our athletes to gain leadership experience in planning the event. The team was also able to bond and let loose at the JC2 Farewell

Chalet in December and AnnualTrack & Field Camp in June.

All in all, our athletes have forged great bonds and

camaraderie

throughout the process of rigorous training in achieving their goals. Despite being more of an individualistic sport, Athletics has actually brought the team closer together and whilst it is true that only certain individuals will be able to be the fastest, strongest or highest, for the rest of us, we have the team,

Volleyball The year 2009 has been a joyous and memorable one for the CJC volleyball team. We started out with only 2 experienced players and

32 keen players who were strangers to the sport. Volleyball is a sport that emphasizes heavrly on both skill and teamwork. However, despite the intense heat from the sun beating down on us during every training session, we endured the tough trainrng together and through all this,

we became better and a more bonded team. One of the highlights of the year was the Sports Camp

to lValacca to pit our skills wrth a local high schoolthere.This experience prepared us for our upcoming National A' Division Competition and was extremely rewarding. We learnt how to perform under stress and stand united as one against a stronger opponent. It was through this trip that a sense of camaraderie was formed and took our game further, Other efforts to prepare us for the National A Drvision Competition included the many friendly matches with various schools such as lJC, YJC, DHS, SAJC, Ngee

The Nationai

its fullest. Competing wrth power houses such as NYJC for the guys and AJC for the girls, we maintained our focus and determination and fought hard for the game. We would not have become what we are

today without the unrelenting support from our teachers-in-charge \:.i.:i.

we did not make it past the first round, the priceless experiences and friendships gained from all this will remain with us forever. The CJC volleyball team will continue to strive for the best in the many years
