CATHOLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE ANNUAL 2015 CREST • VISION, MISSION & CORE VALUES

In Veritate Et Caritate In Truth and Love he 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.

T

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 which means ‘In Truth and Love,’ speaks of its 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 realize their potential academically, physically and spiritually. • Living - Forming a person who is well-integrated into society.

Mission Building a Generation: In Truth and 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 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. • Imparting the knowledge necessary for young people to face the future confidently. • Respecting and affirming the value of human life. • Forming the conscience of our students in accordance with the principles of a Christian school in the Catholic tradition. • Enlarging their perspective so that they contribute meaningfully and responsibly to society with conviction. Every CJCian to be a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart

CATHOLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE ANNUAL 2015 PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Principal’s Message

1

015 was a memorable year for CJC. As the nation had its milestone with SG50, our college had CJ40.

2

Like SG50, CJ40 allowed the college to look back at its founding and distil the CJC ethos and identity that have endured for forty years and will remain for the next four decades. The values of ‘Truth and Love’ translated into ‘Service’ for the pioneer batch of CJC students in 1975.

2

In the college curriculum and co-curriculum today these values are still upheld. CJCians today are expected to ‘Be the change’. They are encouraged to appreciate their God given talents and strive for meaningful and fulfilling careers that will allow them to make a difference in society and serve the disadvantaged. Many CJC alumni have paved the way in making a difference in society and this was captured in the coffee table book presented at the CJ40 Gala Dinner on 14 November 2015. The same qualities are seen in CJCians today and they display the potential to make their mark in society in the pages of this annual.

3

CJC has demonstrated resilience and fortitude over the last forty years and we look forward to more joyous years and inspiring stories from CJCians in the future as the college continues its mission of ‘Building a Generation in Truth and Love: Every CJCian to be a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart’ .

In Veritate et Caritate. God bless! Mrs Christine Kong Principal

Our Stars Artistic Virtuosos Our performing arts groups had the most outstanding year in the history of CJC as they garnered the greatest number of Certificates of Distinction in the Singapore Youth Festival(SYF) 2015. For the first time, our Guitar Ensemble attained the Certificate of Distinction. It was formed in 1995 as a recreational activity but has since grown to be a talented group. 2 The Choir, the Symphonic Band and the Dance Club continued to maintain their impressive track record over the years, with their outstanding performances that won them the Certificate of Distinction as well. Both the Band and the Choir were formed in 1975. The Band first started as a Military Band, then evolved over the years until it became the Symphonic Band in 1998, winning a Silver Award in the SYF Indoor Band Competition in 1999. The Choir first won a Bronze Award in the SYF Competition 2001. The Dance Club set up in 2000 won its first SYF Gold Award in 2005.

CATHOLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE ANNUAL 2015 STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Student Development Programme 1

he Student Development (SD) Programme was formally instituted in CJC in 2003 and is currently a key component of the CJC Experience . The programme has its roots in the principles and aims expressed by the Rev JeanMarie Beurel M.E.P. who established the first Catholic school in Singapore. The principles were emphasis on Moral Education together with academic excellence; admission open to everyone, whatever his religion; respect for all religions. Hence moral and religious education has been an integral part of the holistic education at CJC from its foundation in 1975.

T

In 1975, the teaching of Ethics and Moral Education during curriculum time in a junior college was permitted by the Ministry of Education. Catholic students were offered one period of Religious Education a week taught mainly by priests of the Dioceses of Singapore, as well as some religious brothers and sisters. At the same time, nonChristian students were offered one period of Moral Education per week during curriculum time. Later on, Catholic teachers volunteered to lead the faith formation classes of Catholic students. Faith formation classes for Catholic students were held outside of official curricular hours but are now part of the Religion and Ethics Programme.

2

However, since 1975 the college has developed a SD Programme that provides our students with a unique CJC Experience in a warm and nurturing environment and that stretches them to their fullest potential, creating opportunities for them to make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of others. The SD components now include the Home Tutorial System, SD Curriculum sessions, Citizenship Education, Leadership Training, Career Guidance and Talent Management (CGTM) and Pastoral Care. All of these serve to help our students to think critically about the issues present in the world today and how they can prepare themselves to make a positive difference to society. 5 This complex programme has evolved over 40 years, going beyond the teaching of Ethics and Moral Education. 1987 saw the establishment of a formal Moral Education Programme in CJC. In 1990 the Religion Programme and the Ethics Programme were formed. These two programmes continue to exist today. The college now runs two parallel programmes: the Religion Programme for Catholic students and those who are interested to learn more about the Catholic faith; the Ethics Programme for non-Catholic students. These sessions provide students a safe space, under the guidance of their tutors, to reflect upon and to

share their experiences and concerns pertaining to personal and societal issues. The first part of the programme looks at helping the students reflect on and develop their personal identity and sense of self, before looking at building healthy and positive relationships and finally, to think critically about issues present in the world today and how they might affect them and vice-versa. The aim of this programme is to help students realise their interests and to use their talents to be positive change-makers in the world.

7

A key feature of the college is the Home Tutorial System which has been in place since 1975. The students belong to home tutorial groups that are under the charge of home tutors. The close relationship between home tutors and their students is critical to the building of a cohesive community within the college. In the early years some 8 home tutors were nuns such as Sister Mary Annunciation, Sister Mary of the Cross, Sister Elizabeth Tham, Sister Janet Wang, Sister Christina Yeo and Sister Josephine Sim. Today, the Home Tutorial System continues to be the foundation on which our pastoral care system functions, as home tutors mentor and journey with every CJCian to help them achieve their potential.

9

To further enhance the community spirit in CJC, each home tutorial class is part of a house system. Albert, Joseph, Michael and Patrick House are led by house masters and cluster heads who provide further support for our students. These teachers work together with the Year Heads as part of our pastoral care support in the college, which has come a long way since its formation in 1999. Another important component of the SD Programme is community service. In 1995 with the establishment of the College Community Service Programme, all home tutorial classes and some CCA groups began to serve the needy, the sick, the aged and the orphans throughout the year. The Overseas Service Learning Programme (OSLP) was officially launched in 1999 and its first community project was carried out in Chiang Rai, Thailand in June that year. In 2001 the college created the Community Involvement Programme and the Overseas Community Service Project. Today all our students participate in Local Service Learning Projects in Singapore and a significant number of students are involved in OSLP Projects in countries such as the Philippines, India, Vietnam and Cambodia. The college’s mission now is to develop every CJCian to be a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart.

Student Development Programme 12

In 1995 too the Educational and Career Guidance Programme was formed and it has evolved into the current Potential Development Programme. It comprises Career Guidance and Talent Management to help all students discover their mission and to guide them towards achieving it. Opportunities to help students gain a taste of careers they are interested in are present in the form of a career day when students attend interactive sessions with people from various industries to gain insights into working life. In addition, work attachment opportunities which are a result of collaboration with our partners, many of whom are alumni, are provided for students.

13

Leadership development was already in place in the 1980s in CJC in the form of leadership training camps. Leadership development has become an important feature of the SD Programme and permeates numerous programmes to develop leaders at various tiers - Home Tutorial Groups (Class Management Committee), Co-Curricular Activities and the House System. Students are provided with leadership training and opportunities. CJC partners industry leader, Outward Bound Singapore, to build our student leaders’ character and leadership qualities through safe, effective and high impact adventure education programmes. Besides stressing the importance of team-spirit, support and care for one another, the Global Adventure Challenge Programmes to India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea and Nepal have allowed our leaders to develop an adventurous and enterprising spirit, as well as to gain an international perspective of the different cultures and socio-economic situations in countries other than Singapore. Complementing this are in-house training programmes such as the leadership training camp (LTC) and the leadership conferences that involve support from both teachers and alumni. The precursor of citizenship education at CJC was in the form of National Education that began in 1997. Today, citizenship education permeates through the entire SD Programme as students are continually challenged to identify issues present in society and to think critically about why they exist and how they, as citizens, must contribute to building a better nation. CJCians of today continue to contribute actively towards nation building – from fund raising during the annual Rockafella for the Needy Students Fund or for Overseas Service Learning Programmes, the annual National Day fund-raising activities for communities, such as the Singapore Children’s Cancer Foundation and the Assisi Hospice, and local service learning programmes.

The CJC Ignite Programme

1

he CJC Ignite Programme was conceptualised with the aim of developing students to be thinkers with a mission, leaders with a heart.

T

Thinker with a Mission 2

Using concept-based instruction, seminar style teaching and integral pedagogy, Ignite lessons are designed to develop students’ ability to collaborate, present and express themselves confidently, and think critically and creatively. This is enhanced by the residential programme at NUS UTown. It is a programme that allows students to have discussions with NUS professors and among themselves to understand social issues and how to solve them.

3

Leader with a Heart The two JC1 classes in the CJC Ignite Programme this year chose to work with children from lower income families (Community Laboratory Programme by South East CDC) and communities in a HDB estate (Heartland Ambassador Programme by HDB) respectively as their Service Learning Projects. Using insights from their lessons and the residential programme, these classes came up with projects that enhanced the well-being of the children in the lower income families and promoted community spirit in the targeted HDB estate.

4

This is the third consecutive year that Ignite students are working with South East CDC. In this programme, students have a chance to visit residents in the estate, as well as be attached to the Meet the People sessions held by Mr Maliki Osman, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Mayor of South East District, so that they can have a deeper understanding of the residents’ needs, aspirations and challenges. 5 Ignite Students – Thinkers with a Mission and Leaders with a Heart Students from the CJC Ignite Programme not only achieved excellent results in their A-level examinations, they also received recognition for their holistic qualities.

40 Student Council

1

he first Student Council and the first Catholic Activities Council were formed in 1975. The pioneer group of student councillors comprised 48 students who were divided into seven departments, that is, academic, ECA, student welfare, college functions, finance, secretaries and the review board. These pioneer councillors led by the first President, Kenneth Tan, strove to evolve an identity for the new college, establish sound traditions for subsequent councils to follow, integrate the Chinese and the English streams and to allow students to have a voice in the running of student affairs.

T

2

The Catholic Activities Council (CAC) organised daily morning prayers and masses, as well as activities to help CJC’s Catholic student community grow spiritually and holistically. In 2004 the CAC was subsumed to be one of the three wings of the Student Council and this system has continued till today. Since 1975 the Student Councils have built upon the traditions and beliefs of the pioneers, evolving to meet the needs of the college community over four decades. The vision of the 40th Student Council was to make a positive difference to the Catholic Junior College (CJC) community and to be a dependable, efficient and approachable body of student leaders. As members of the CJC community, we aimed to always uphold the school values and did our best to make CJC a school that every CJCian is proud to be a part of. We strove to make CJC our second home for all where every student would feel comfortable in, and also worked to develop the spirituality of the college community. Through the organisation of many school activities, we worked to create a closely knit family where the CJC flame burns brightly and spreads to all around us.

Catholic Activities Wing The Catholic Activities (CA) Wing led in the planning and running of numerous activities that helped in the spiritual development of the school community, such as daily masses, masses for special days like Ash Wednesday and Ascension and various other projects. Our vision was to have a spirit-filled community that is anchored in faith, hope and love. Regardless of one’s religion, we aimed to develop the spirituality of each member in the community, be it helping a Catholic leave the college as a better Catholic or helping a Buddhist leave as a better Buddhist. The CA Wing was active in ensuring that the daily masses and morning prayers and reflections were carried out smoothly. Whether it was feeling a sense of peace in the House of Prayer or gaining new insights and perspectives, these activities allowed the school community to begin the day right with reflection and thanksgiving. As part of CJC’s 40th anniversary, some of the CA Wing members were also privileged enough to be able to be part of the CJ40 Mass that was celebrated by our Archbishop William Goh. 6 PAGE 26

Apart from the daily events that the CA Wing was in charge of, we also organised other activities such as the Lenten and Easter activities. To commemorate the 40 days of Lent, we initiated the Lenten Project which centred on the idea of sacrifice, repentance and reflection. Some of the activities included an interactive booth and a Stations of the Cross session which was a reminder of Jesus’ humble sacrifice in his journey to the cross. In celebrating Easter, which is the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord, the CA Wing held the well-loved Easter Egg Hunt, as well as coordinated a Praise and Worship session in the school chapel that was hosted by the 2015 batch of Office for Young People’s School of Witness participants. On the whole, these events allowed a meaningful time for the CJC community to participate in reflection and worship even in the midst of their busy schedules.

9

Community Involvement Wing The Community Involvement (CI) Wing’s main goal was to be the bridge between students, the school management and the rest of the community. CI planned events such as Open House and Leaders’ Conversational Day to bring more of the community together and strove to bond people from various backgrounds to make the college a more conducive and better place for all students to call their second home.

10

One of our key projects was the CJC Open House 2015, which aimed at showcasing CJC’s warmth and vibrancy to our guests. After months of tireless planning, liaising with various groups of people and the much appreciated cooperation of the entire CJC family, the CJC Open House was one that captured all of CJC’s immense warmth and hospitality, and 11 also displayed the selfless support and efforts made by everyone in the school community in extending their warmest welcome to the public. In addition, the CI Wing also planned ABLAZE which is a project aimed at increasing and maintaining the school spirit. During ABLAZE, different sports CCAs having their ‘A’ Division competitions and performing arts CCAs having their SYF competitions had a chance to be in the limelight as we informed the community on their efforts and their training regimes, and also displayed their competition results on notice boards so that the school community would be aware of their successes. Words of encouragement from students and teachers were also collected and given to the various CCAs, allowing them to feel the support the school has for them.

40th Student Council Student Activities Wing The Student Activities (SA) Wing’s mission was to help enable the student body to have an enriching and vibrant college life. The Wing planned activities and events that aimed to promote unity and create a sense of belonging in the college. The two main events that they planned to meet these objectives were the J2 Graduation Night and Rockafella XI. Rockafella is an annual charity rock concert cum competition for students to showcase their talent and rock their hearts out while doing good for the community at the same time. It raises funds for our needy students and overseas service learning trips through the sale of merchandise such as t-shirts, badges and wristbands. To commemorate CJ40 this year, Rockafella XI formed an integral part of the CJ40 Carnival. Not only was it the first time that the Rockafella concert was held during the day and in an outdoor venue, it was also a significant time for CJC 15 students, both past and present, to come together as one community to sing and dance to music by alumni bands as well as current students. The numerous performances, including a special one by CJC’s very own teachers, provided a platform for CJCians to create beautiful memories while reminiscing about the old. Most importantly, it was a reminder about the common identity that we all share as CJCians.

16

The highlight of every graduating batch has to be the J2 Graduation Night, a tradition of the college that is not to be missed. Graduation Night was originally named Prom Night in 1989 and it was held in the college in the early years. The theme of this year's Graduation Night for the class of 2015 was ‘Hall Of Fame’ and it was a night both to recognise their contributions to the school as well as a time for them to recollect their experiences in CJC. With fun games, attractive prizes, delicious food and great company, it was a grand closure to their final chapter of their journey in the college.

Serving and Adventuring Beyond: OSLP and OBS n Catholic Junior College, our students are called to be thinkers with a mission and leaders with a heart. Hence every year we invite our students to sign up for programmes, held in the November-December period, that will stretch them through serving communities in countries in South-east Asia and Asia and surmounting physical and mental challenges.

One of these signature programmes is the Overseas Service Learning Programme (OSLP). This year 168 students participated in OSLP trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, India and the Philippines. They engaged in projects to better the lives of the beneficiaries in their own small way. In the process of 5 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 to OSLP Philippines visited the Hospicio de San Jose, a home for the needy in Manila that catered to abandoned babies and orphans (from toddlers to school age), people with special needs (children and adults), as well as the elderly. OSLP Vietnam and OSLP Cambodia participants carried out service learning projects at primary schools, helping to restore their buildings and conducting lessons for the children. Students who went to Bangalore, India visited Christ Junior College and Christ University to experience the everyday life of their students. They also engaged in a service learning project in the urban slum of LR Nagar and the village of Hoskote. They taught the children in the slum and students in a primary school in Hoskote and interacted as well with the villagers. Through these interactions our students learned much about not only the people in Bangalore and Hoskote, but also themselves. All the service learning projects enabled our students to

Serving and Adventuring Beyond: OSLP and OBS develop a keen awareness of the needs of the local community, as well as values such as resilience to surmount problems, initiative and adaptability in improvising when plans went awry. Besides the OSLP, CJC partners Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) in building our 11 students’ character and leadership qualities through safe, effective and high impact adventure education programmes. These programmes have a service learning component as well. 81 students went to Outward Bound Taiwan (OBT) and Outward Bound Hong Kong (OBHK). OBHK comprised a 5-day trekking course, a 4-day sailing course and a 2-day service learning project. The service learning project was conducted at Crossroads Foundation, a nonprofit organisation, which collects quality excess and second-hand goods in Hong Kong. It then distributes them to the underprivileged worldwide. The students learned to be responsible and compassionate as they helped to clear and clean the organisation’s old buildings, assisted the elderly in shifting to new homes and

Serving and Adventuring Beyond: OSLP and OBS aided in packing clothes and toys for export. Furthermore, by venturing out into the open blue sea and vast country parks, they not only benefitted in terms of strengthening their physical endurance but their personal leadership skills as well. Whether it was the strenuous trekking with heavy backpacks or the choppy waves 17 when helming the boat, OBHK taught our students to be better team players who are resilient with the never-say-die attitude. Students who went to Taiwan learned practical skills, endurance and team work as they climbed Nenggao Mountains to hit Nanhua Summit. They also supported one another in solving problems and overcoming personal doubts and fears. For their service learning they interacted with ChenSanMei Social Welfare Foundation (Down Syndrome) beneficiaries, creating framed pictures for them and teaching them origami. 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 he Local Service Learning Programme (LSLP) in CJC is a key programme for our JC1 students. It aims to develop students who have a passion to serve others, have a mission to improve the community, are rooted to their country, and are aware of their own strengths, weaknesses, values and personalities.

T

Each JC1 class has the autonomy to identify a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO) to partner with or a cause that they want to advocate for. Guided by their Home Tutors, students learn how to identify the VWO or cause based on their passion and mission to serve. Students do not just embark on an ad-hoc project, but go through a process of conversing with the beneficiaries, understanding the social issue involved and acquire conceptual understanding in helping others or advocating a cause. Based on the guiding principles of sustainable initiatives, impact on the wider community and ability to promote deep learning, the LSLP in CJC has seen JC1 classes in 2015 partnering more than 20 VWOs and advocating for a wide range of causes, such as the welfare of the elderly, the young, the handicapped, lower income families and migrant workers, the welfare of animals, palliative care and community building. Many of the VWOs, for example, the Archdiocesan Commission for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, Assisi Hospice, Food from the Heart, Very Special Arts, just to name a few, are long term partners in this programme.

This year, the government initiated the SG50 Giving initiative whereby schools were allocated funds to be donated to VWOs of their choice. This initiative was leveraged on as a leadership and presentation development opportunity for students in CJC. The LSLP Representative of the JC2 classes presented to the senior management of the college and the Vice-President of the Student Council the VWOs that they partnered with last year. Their role was to advocate for the VWOs that they partnered, thus allowing them to be part of the decision making process. Assisi Hospice, Lions Befrienders Service Association, Singapore Children’s Society and Whispering Hearts Family Service Centre were the recipients of the donation. The success of this programme sees CJC alumni continuing to work with some of these VWOs. For example, students from 2T27 from the class of 2014 continued to volunteer with Xin Yuan Community Care and even came down to the CJC LSLP Fair to share their experiences with their juniors on their own accord. Mah Chia Ling from 2T18 (14/15), after her class’ SLP project, embarked on her own volunteering journey with Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home. She was so inspired that she linked up the old age home with the college so that her juniors can also partner the home. After completing their LSLP project with Food from the Heart, 1T23 volunteered to also assist in the KK Hospital Children’s Day Camp for children whose mothers are cancer patients. In 1T27’s post-LSLP reflection, they stated that through the LSLP they have “learnt to empower people with a choice and make them feel strong”. This reflection nicely sums up the deep learning of students of how to address social issues and challenges in a human-centric and dignified way. PAGE 33

ELL Reach Castle Immersion Programme 16-29 March he opportunity to visit the historic city of Cambridge in England, to learn from the very best and brightest in the field of 2 Linguistics, and to enjoy the sights and sounds of the United Kingdom itself is one that few would willingly pass up. While the English Language and Linguistics (ELL) Programme here in Catholic Junior College is top-notch, nothing beats the experience of actually going to the heart of the English language 4 itself, and there can be no doubt that the experience truly paid off.

T

Our knowledge of Linguistics benefited immensely from the trip - famous professors and linguists alike graciously took the time to lecture to us in the premises of Reach Cambridge. Familiar topics, such as regional varieties of English and language change, were discussed in much greater detail than usual. Varieties such as Geordie and key events such as the Great Vowel Shift were just some of the interesting content we covered. In addition to this, we learnt topics outside of the standard syllabus here in Singapore, including Psycholinguistics, which deals with how one actually learns a language. The highlight of our Linguistics studies was engaging in linguistic research, gathering data from our interviews of the residents in and visitors to Cambridge. Our data were uploaded onto the website, languagelandscape.com, set up by the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Another highlight of the programme comprised visits to two schools, Reach Academy in London and Norwich School in the historic city of Norwich. We interacted with the students in these two schools, attended their lessons and had lunch with them during their break. The ELL students also conducted a presentation on Singapore English and Singapore’s history to the students in Reach Academy. Our learning journey had a historical element to it as well, as it was interspersed with trips around London, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon. During these walking tours, we learnt more about the history and culture of England itself, including the origins and histories of famous landmarks, such as the Houses of Parliament and the colleges of Oxford University. Visits to Shakespeare’s home in Stratford and the British Museum - and viewing the famous Rosetta Stone - in London were also great ways to immerse ourselves in knowledge of the arts. Broadening and enriching both our minds as well as our life experiences, Reach Castle is a once in a lifetime experience that is a must-do for anyone taking ELL in Catholic Junior College. PAGE 34

University of Hong Kong Immersion Programme 29 June - 9 July 5 CJC students went to Hong Kong for an overseas immersion programme hosted by the University of Hong Kong (HKU), in what was the second annual academic exchange between the two institutes. The programme aims to challenge students to think critically and expand their intellectual capacity, by exposing them to core contemporary issues in the context of Hong Kong through both seminars and field trips. The CJCians also engaged in community outreaches while in Hong Kong, contributing to their holistic learning experience there.

2 3

Hosting them in the series of seminars over the course of the programme were various distinguished professors and lecturers from the university. Urban planning in Hong Kong was the key concern underlined by most of the seminars and the students gained insights through active discussions on topics comprising public housing, transportation planning, environmental sustainability and conservation. In addition, they learnt more about the effects of globalisation, and the sociopolitical climate of Hong Kong. Equipped with all this new knowledge, they applied their knowledge by drawing parallels to Singapore. To complement the knowledge gained from the seminars, the students also visited several locales pertinent to the topics discussed. These included historic sites such as Pok Fu Lam Village, which brought issues of the preservation and sustainable management of cultural heritage to the fore, and Mei Ho House, which marked the beginning of Hong Kong’s public housing policies. The students also learnt about the evolution of Hong Kong’s public housing system at the Hong Kong Housing Authority, and experienced the world of policy-making first-hand at the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. In line with CJC’s mission to cultivate thinkers with a mission and leaders with a heart, the students engaged in service learning in Hong Kong as well. With the guidance of teachers, they planned and executed a Language and Cultural Exchange at a childcare centre for underprivileged adolescents. For this project, the students exposed the children to conversational English through interactive activities, played popular traditional Singaporean games such as capteh and “five stones” with them, and even prepared Singaporean food delights such as bandung and laksa noodles for them to enjoy.

An afternoon was also spent volunteering at the central kitchen of Food Angel — a food assistance programme that rescues edible food waste and redistributes them as cooked meals for needy communities — where they helped prepare and serve meals to the elderly.

7

Apart from the seminars, the students participated in stimulating workshops at HKU that coached creative thinking and drama presentation skills. Furthermore, they had the opportunity to experience the “Dialogue in the Dark” exhibition, which allowed them to better empathise with the visually-impaired as they attempted to conduct daily activities such as crossing roads and groceryshopping in complete darkness. All in all, the CJCians took away more than just academic learning from the immersion programme. They not only found relevance and real-world applicability to subjects like the Humanities and General Paper, but were also able to view governance and urban management with greater acuity. Resonating profoundly with them as well was the meaning found in their service learning stints in Hong Kong. Thus, they returned to Singapore with greater purpose, as thinkers and as leaders.

Suzhou Science Immersion Programme November 8-14 group of 17 students along with two teachers took a trip in November to Suzhou and Shanghai, China, for the inaugural CJC’s Suzhou Science Immersion Programme in collaboration with NUS (Suzhou) 2 Research Institute (NUSRI). Gaining insights into how Science is incorporated into various industries and research areas to solve real-world problems, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn beyond the classroom was an enriching and fulfilling one.

The lectures were most enlightening, covering various topics such as flight mechanisms, CO2 reduction and Megatrends. With the help of our teachers who contextualised some of the content, we saw how relevant these topics are to the ‘A’ level examination but more importantly, to our future as we keep pushing forward towards new and greater opportunities both locally and internationally. Through our nightly circle time reflections, we opened up and shared with each other what we learnt and experienced throughout each day. We shared how we felt about the trip, the lectures and visits to places like RISUN, a solar panel production plant and GIANT, the bicycle manufacturing factory.

As part of the CJC experience, we engaged in a Service Learning Project (SLP) of our own during the trip. This year, we visited the Silvery Home to help the elderly there. Through our performances and interaction with the elderly in the home, we learned a great deal from them as they shared their life experiences with us. A poem shared an elderly resident, who was formerly a teacher, entitled 你们和我们 or in English, “You and Us”, referring to both the young and the old, urges people of all ages to live meaningfully: “你们年轻,我们也年轻,你们的年轻写在脸上 ,我们的年轻始终藏在心房。

This immersion trip has truly been a memorable experience for us as we learned much more than just academic knowledge. 8

Open House 14 January

atholic Junior College has always been known for its warm and welcoming spirit. On 14 January, we took the opportunity to spread this spirit of ours far beyond our immediate college community – scores of parents and recent ‘O’ Level graduates managed to experience CJC’s signature hospitality first-hand, during our annual Open House.

C

2 1

Open House served as the perfect occasion for all who were curious or interested in the college to truly get to know it. Guided by enthusiastic and friendly facilitators, wide-eyed ‘O’ level graduates, along with their eager parents, toured the college, acquainting themselves with the various facilities of a college that could very well be their home for the next two years. Booths for every subject offered in the college were set up in the Auditorium, and teachers were on hand to introduce their respective subjects and answer any queries posed by the visitors. In addition to this, a number of micro-lessons were 3 conducted throughout the day. Those who wished to better understand certain subjects – especially niche subjects such as English Language and Linguistics – could opt to attend a session of half-hour lessons carried out by the teachers themselves.

4

However, college life does not solely comprise academics – CCAs, Overseas Service Learning Programmes (OSLPs), and Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) trips all serve to provide CJC students with a meaningful and all-rounded college life. Booths or showcases of these CCAs and programmes could be found all over the college, and several CCAs – such as the Dance Club and the Choir – regaled visitors with their performances in the 5 Piazza and the Foyer. 8

CJ40 Anniversary Mass

2

31 January 1

015 marks Catholic Junior College’s 40th anniversary, with the Anniversary Mass being the first in a string of special events held to commemorate the important year. CJC has always been deeply rooted in faith and Christian values, with daily morning prayers, a comprehensive Religion Programme, and even yearly retreats being the norm. Beginning the year with a grand, large-scale mass was thus a perfectly fitting way to return to the college’s roots.

2

Celebrated by His Grace, Archbishop William Goh, and accompanied by a choir of dedicated alumni members, the mass was attended by a full house of alumni, teachers, current students and religious, with the congregation filling up the entire Auditorium and Auditorium Extension. Guided by friendly ushers, guests were given goldenyellow mass booklets, which came with laminated prayer cards, which they could refer to during the celebration. Before the service began, the congregation was treated to a special commemorative video, chronicling CJC’s history from its inception in 1975 to the present day. During the Homily, Archbishop William Goh took the opportunity to deliver a passionate reminder of the importance of the college mission: In Veritate, et Caritate. The CJC culture, so steeped in the powerful values of truth and love, gives every student who walks through its doors a sense of purpose and direction. In this way, the college’s mission to build a generation in truth and love is an exceedingly noble one, as it has the potential to bring greater peace and harmony to a world sorely in need of these. His Grace also highlighted an additional benefit of the college mission: the gift of formation. In guiding and teaching others, we too are formed, learning more about ourselves and becoming better people in the process. As the service drew to a close, Mr Gerard Lee, Chairman of the CJC School Management Committee, took centre stage and spoke about the numerous changes to the college in its 40-year history, including uniform and curriculum changes, as well as areas where it has remained steadfast, such as its strong Christian focus. CJC’s commitment to Christian values, emphasised Mr Lee, has prepared students for a world 8 where academic achievements are simply not enough. This sentiment was immediately echoed by Archbishop Goh, who stressed that Christian values are vital ingredients for success. The mass ended with a resounding rendition of the school song, followed by various photo-taking sessions, including one which had the entire congregation in one big group shot. PAGE 39

Parent Teacher Meetings January 20-21, February 10-12, June 6 arent-Teacher Meetings are crucial in ensuring a strong partnership to develop and maximise the potential of our students. The meetings are held regularly throughout the year with the objective of keeping parents informed of college policies, college activities and student progress, as well as to harness their support in enhancing student learning. 2

P

The college hosted two Parent Information Evenings (PIE), in January for the JC2s and in February for the JC1s. These sessions provided a platform for the school leaders to inform parents of important dates and events in the college calendar. During the PIE, our Principal, Mrs Christine Kong, briefed parents on the college calendar, expectations of the college on student outcomes, admission criteria for local universities, assessment dates and important milestone checks on our students’ progress. Parents were also introduced to key personnel in the college as well as members of the CJC Parent Support Group (PSG). After the session, parents were given an opportunity to meet the Home Tutors and Subject Tutors of their children.

3

The Parent-Teacher Conference (PTC) was held on 6 June this year after the Mid-Year Examinations so 4 that Home Tutors could meet the parents of their students to review the latter’s academic performance and to discuss the best approach to help them in their overall development.

JC1 Orientation Concordia: Unity in Strength 30 January – 4 February fter an entire week of dancing to ‘Chori Chori’, racing around the iconic Gardens by the Bay and making a splash on the CJ field hand in hand, it came as no surprise that strangers easily became friends by the end of the JC1 Orientation.

A

2

When the new JC1 students arrived in CJC for the first time, they were warmly received by the energetic Orientation Group Leaders (OGLs). The day started off with the OGLs performing their self-choreographed CJC orientation dance, which was an excellent way for the JC1s to kick-start life in CJC. The JC1s were then housed into four groups: Aquaria, Gusta, Terraria and Incendia. Named after elements that would form the basis of a new world, the OGLs embarked on a mission to bring the cohort together as one. The day ended with a preview of a skit to be performed by various OGLs the following week. During the week, the JC1s also experienced ‘Circle Time’, which is a key part of our college’s Student Development Programme. It was a great opportunity for each and every voice to be heard during these sessions. The ‘Amazing Race’ in Gardens by the Bay gave the JC1s the opportunity to take charge and find their way around the various ‘pit stops’ for the station games. Alumni volunteers helmed the ‘pit stops’ and in true CJ spirit, led the games with enthusiasm and care for every single one of the juniors. The day ended with a mass picnic where food and good conversations brought the JC1s even closer together.

On the last day, the JC1s made a splash on the school field as they participated wholeheartedly in the water games. There were plenty of JC2s who cheered them on from the grandstand. The final instalment of the skit by the OGLs brought all the houses together as one, 7 as cheers and laughter rocked the auditorium. It was clear then, that the JC1s and JC2s had become one family with one heart and spirit.

Commencement Ceremony

2

16 February lessed with a rich history of moulding generation after generation in truth and love, Catholic Junior College officially welcomed its 40th batch of fresh new students during the annual Commencement Ceremony. With the theme ‘A Legacy that Inspires Generations, One in Truth and Love’, the Ceremony saw the college grow not just as a school community, but as a family as well.

B

3

Once the eager-eyed JC1s and JC2s had filed into the Auditorium and had their assembly, they were treated to a video montage showing CJC’s history over the years. Peals of laughter and delighted applause could be heard as the students recognised their teachers, looking decades younger, or saw familiar scenes, such as frantic note-taking during lectures, reflected in the old black-and-white photographs projected. The Ceremony began with a prayer service celebrated by Father Leslie Raj – himself a CJC alumnus from the class of 1979 – keeping in line with the long-held Catholic values and traditions of the college. This was followed by an impassioned speech by 40th Student Council President Mulder Teo, who stressed the importance of building the CJC legacy, as well as the CJC spirit. Such a spirit, he believes, is the ‘ohana’, or ‘family’, spirit, which builds our relationships and allows us to effectively support one another, as seen in the recent JC1 Orientation. Closing his speech to thunderous applause with his own tuneful rendition of the popular High School Musical song ‘We’re All in This Together’, Mulder then passed the time to Principal Mrs Christine Kong. In her address, Mrs Kong urged the college to commit, as a community, to make CJC a place of excellence in living and learning. She also highlighted the importance of personal mastery, as it is key to a successful life, yet also one of the most difficult things to do. Vice-Principal Mr Eric Lee then took to the stage, explaining in great detail the significance of the collar pin and the flame, which symbolises eternal light shining upon us. Once the pins were blessed by Father Raj, they were distributed to the various classes, after which the JC2s carefully pinned them onto their juniors’ collars. The JC2s also presented their junior classes with personalised gift 9 boxes, the contents of which had been specially chosen by every class to give the JC1s a good start to the year. After well wishes had been exchanged among the students, Father Raj led the college in community prayers said by members representing different parts of the CJC family. Together they lighted the college candle symbolising the coming 11 together of the entire CJC community, and as its flame burned on, the closing prayer was said and, in one voice, the school song was proudly sung.

Mother Tongue Language (MTL) Fortnight 23 February – 6 March TL Fortnight is an annual event that is held in all schools which have the freedom to organise their own unique activities. This year “Unlocking the Cultural Puzzles @ Balestier" was the main highlight of the MTL Fortnight in CJC. The programme aimed to raise our students’ awareness of the value and practicality of conversing in their mother tongue in realworld contexts. In addition, they experienced their Mother Tongue Languages as ‘living languages’ through exploring the history and rich cultural heritage of Balestier.

M

1 2 3

Our students, accompanied by their teachers, had a walking tour of the Balestier area, listening to the commentaries of experienced tour guides as they visited places of interest such as the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and the Ramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple at Tai Gin Road, the Water Kiosk at the corner of Boon Teck Road, the former Shaw Malay Film Studios at Jalan Ampas, Lam Yeo Coffee Powder which was established in September 1960 at 328 Balestier Road and traditional bakeries at Whampoa Drive. After the learning journey, our students were required to produce a 2-minute video clip on their favourite spot in Balestier. Students formed groups of 3, with each having a specific role: the Researcher was responsible for conducting an in-depth study of the selected place, the News-Caster would then prepare a script based on the information collected and present it, while the IT specialist was in charge of the overall filming, video production and final editing of the video clip. By discovering and exploring the rich heritage of Balestier with its harmonious blend of many cultures, our students can truly understand what makes us uniquely Singaporean after 50 years of nation-building.

Chinese New Year Celebrations 18 February he festive Lunar New Year season is one of the most highly anticipated holidays of the year. It is a time for families to come together, for loved ones to strengthen their bonds with one another, and for everyone to experience immeasurable warmth and love. Indeed, home is where the heart is. Yet, families are not only found at home. The Catholic Junior College community came together as one united family as well, joyously celebrating the Lunar New Year in truth and love.

T

2

With their brightly-coloured House T-shirts lending a cheerful air to the Auditorium, students gathered in their Houses for the morning assembly, after which the special Lunar New Year performances commenced. Emceed by Alexander Goh (2T03), Natasha Wee (2T03), and Lukasz Yim (2T22), the day’s lineup began with a video titled The Reunion Dinner, which greatly moved all who watched it by reminding them of the importance of family, and the unbreakable familial bonds that hold them together. The spirit of the Lunar New Year was further amplified by the Symphonic Band’s tuneful medley of popular Lunar New Year songs, including He Xin Nian, as well as Xi Shui Chang Liu. The sweet strains of the guzheng called to mind the Chinese heritage 4 and culture of many of the students and the staff, as the Guzheng Ensemble performed Ying Chun Hua and Da Di Hui Chun.

3

Interspersed between these musical performances were several unique game segments, where representatives from each of the four Houses competed for House points. The first game had students putting their thinking caps on as they answered tough trivia questions related to the Lunar New Year, while the second game required them to put their Mother Tongue skills to good use as they tried to come up with the best and most accurate translations of Mandarin Chinese idioms. Once the scores were tallied, Patrick House emerged as the ultimate champion, with Albert House following close behind in second place. The performances ended with a mass sing-along session – the sports leaders were invited to take centre stage and sing, while various sweets and treats were distributed to those who remained on the floor.

Students took the opportunity to bond together and create fond memories during the potluck session in the canteen, and peals of laughter could be heard all around as every class celebrated with their own scrumptious box of yusheng. As the celebrations drew to a close, Principal Mrs Christine Kong gave one final speech, urging everyone to always uphold the values of the family, and remember those unable to celebrate with their loved ones. As the college returned home to celebrate once more with their families, it was clear that the Lunar New Year break would not only be filled with good food and good cheer, but also, true to college spirit, with truth and love.

A Level Results 2 March

he Class of 2014 gathered in the College’s auditorium on 2 March for the release of the ‘A’ Level results. It was a mixture of excitement as well as nervousness, as the cohort waited for the Principal’s address to know the results after their two year journey in CJC.

T

Our Principal, Mrs Christine Kong, congratulated the graduates on their commendable performance as illustrated by the pass rates that equalled or exceeded the national average in H2 and H1 subjects, as well as improvements in the rates of distinction. Loud cheers greeted the announcement of various subjects that did well and of various students who topped the cohort or had significant value-added results. Mrs Kong expressed her pride and confidence in the cohort, and encouraged them to continue their pursuit of academic excellence and in upholding the ethos of the college.

Top performers then made their way to the Library to collect their results. Top students from the Arts faculty included Wayne Wee Woon (2T06), Adeline Tan Poh Kim (2T35) and Jethro Andrew Fernandez Tok (2T03). From the Science faculty, Jonathan Kwok (2T20) and Louis Teo Zi Wang (2T34) were named as some of the top performers. Special mention was also made of Caleb Tay Jin Howe, whose resilience and determination to overcome obstacles led to his commendable achievement in the ‘A’ levels.

It was evident that the class of 2014 was one that displayed courage and resilience in their CJC journey.

CJ40 Carnival 14 March

he much anticipated CJ Carnival, after a long hiatus of 14 years, finally made its comeback on the eventful Saturday of March 14.

T

The event was indeed one of a kind as the 2 school gathered together to make it one of the very best. Preparations from elaborate blueprints of game stalls to the sketching of hand drawn banners – each and every aspect of the carnival was carefully thought out. One of the preparations also saw the school coming together to form a human chain to bring down tables and chairs from the classrooms. This highly symbolic human chain served to remind the school of the importance of teamwork and how every single person is important – because with any break in the human chain, the entire school would be unable to move forward. Held in the school campus, the event, which warmly welcomed the public and all CJCians from its 40 year long history, embarked on the theme ‘Reliving Memories, Relishing Moments’ as a means for CJCians to reconnect with their peers and their teachers. The carnival saw huge throngs of crowds coming through the gates – far more than the expected number – and all were greeted with the welcoming and friendly smiles of current CJCians. With delicious food ranging from basic carnival snacks like popcorn 4 to elaborate ones like dry laksa, and fun-filled games from dancing competitions to beer pong, the carnival catered to all the needs of the visitors. For current students, there was the hugely exciting laser tag that tested their wits and quick thinking skills as they competed with the teachers, and for the staff, there were rounds of what was dubbed ‘merciless dunkings’. Some of the staff who got dunked included the Principal Mrs Christine Kong and the VicePrincipal Mr Tan Jek Suan, much to the amusement of 6 the crowd. For alumni wishing to relive their college memories, a corner of the auditorium was set aside for a tea-session with their teachers, and everyone was kept busy laughing in the joy of reminiscence.

CJ40 Carnival Yet, the Carnival was not just a feast for one’s stomach, but for the musical and aesthetic satisfaction of the mind and ears too. Rockafella XI, which saw Fall of Cyprus coming out as champions, had the entire school grooving together to popular rock tunes until evening. Even when the sun went down and the evening started to cool off, the hyped-up atmosphere did not – CJCians remained ever energetic and sang the closing school song loudly. Then, being responsible students, CJCians went off to their designated areas for the mass clean up despite being sorely tired.

9

With so many smiles and fond memories induced, the Carnival was deemed a roaring success – one that not only brought current students closer as one community, but also interweaved the vibrant colours and legacies left behind by previous batches. The CJ flame, bright and burning, glows brighter than ever.

Think Career and Higher Education Fest 20 -21 May 2

he annual Think Career and Higher Education Fest is a conduit for students to find out more about potential job options and avenues for exploration after leaving the college. This year’s inspirational theme “Be the Change” called on students to take control of their futures by being proactive in their search for potential career options and higher education institutes that are available to them after graduation.

The college invited many esteemed guest speakers from a broad range of job sectors to hold inspirational and informative talks. Speakers included alumni such as Mr John Yap, founder of the renowned Awfully Chocolate, Ms Teo Swee Lian from the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Professor Tan Cheng Han from the Faculty of Law NUS and Mr Dominic Lim from Splat! Many speakers hailed from CJC and were proud to return to their alma-mater to give back to their school and help inspire and encourage the new batches of CJCians to find a job suited to their strengths and interests. Ms Therese Tan, a lecturer for the Association for Early Childhood Educators (Singapore), shared her experience in developing and teaching young children, and Mr Anthony Wong, the founder of Creative Eateries Pte Ltd, spoke about his tough decisions at various points of his life which led him to be an entrepreneur.

During their respective breaks, students were also encouraged to visit the Higher Education booths set up in the auditorium to learn more about the different universities and courses as well as potential scholarships and bursaries that were available to them. The Think Career and Higher Education Fest truly aided the students in finding their passions and gave them a push in the right direction. It gave them a little taste as to what their potential jobs may entail in the future and whetted their appetites for what is to come.

Sports Carnival 22 & 29 May

n line with the college’s 40th anniversary celebrations, this year’s Sports Carnival had the theme “Ignite the Torch, Rekindle the Memories”, calling to mind CJC’s long history of sportsmanship.

I

2

The two-day carnival saw the sportspeople of Patrick, Michael, Albert, and Joseph House go head to head in a variety of gruelling events, such as flippa ball, rugby, football, and even a biathlon. The heats saw both participants and spectators alike get themselves fired up for the second, and last, day of the carnival. Taking place at CJC itself, the finals began with the passing of a burning torch from the JC2 house captains to the JC1 captains, symbolising the passing of the flame of passion and love for 3 sports from one generation to the next. This was followed by the cheerleading event, a crowd favourite, where each house regaled a panel of judges with their impressive routines and skilled acrobatics. In the next event, the Telematch, both students and teachers had to work together to complete a series of challenges, including skipping together as a team, and using straws to transport balls from one place to another. Once this exciting, and often hilarious, event ended, the individual games began in earnest. Students dribbled, kicked, and raced their way to victory, as their friends supported and cheered for them.

After the tough matches were over, the college gathered once more at the grandstand for the much-awaited prize giving ceremony. Joseph House emerged as the overall champion of the carnival, with Patrick, Albert, and Michael House following in second, third, and fourth place respectively. The day ended on a high note, with a heart-pounding round of house cheers and the singing of the school song in one loud voice. 6

The ceremony began with a short prayer service. Conducted by Father Raj, the college chaplain, and complemented by the beautiful voices of the Music Ministry, the service poignantly reminded everyone that they were “salt of the earth” and “light for the world”. Once the short service was over, our Principal, Mrs Christine Kong, took to the stage to speak to the assembled JC2 students, award winners, teachers and guests. In her address, Mrs Kong stressed the importance of tenacity and resilience, and of being adventurous and not being afraid to seize opportunities. She also highlighted the fact that a successful life could be measured by the difference one has made in the lives of others - as leaders with a heart, CJCians share the common goal of serving the less advantaged and the greater good. Mrs Kong’s speech was followed by that of Guest of Honour, Associate Professor PatrickTseng, an alumnus of CJC from the class of 1978, and currently the Chief Dental Officer of the Ministry of Health and the Registrar of the Singapore Dental Council. Professor Tseng was confident that the stellar upbringing of CJCians would enable them all to be leaders with a heart, and emphasised that success was not a destination but a journey. The prizes were then presented to the awardees. Other than the subject prize winners, the awardees included recipients of CCA Awards, the CJC Flame Scholarship, the CJC Archbishop’s Scholarship, the MOE English Language Elective Scholarship, the Friends of CJC Award, and the 9 Spring Singapore Awards to Executive and Administrative Staff. The Principal’s Commendation Award went to Tay Jin Howe Caleb, while the Tay Chen Hui Memorial Award and the Narindar K. Dhillon Award, given to the top Science and Arts students respectively, went to Han Songhan and Wee Woon Wayne. Wayne also received the highly prestigious Ee Peng Liang Award, which is given to the student who best 11 exemplifies the college values, with academic excellence and outstanding contributions to the college as well as the larger community. Besides the academic awards, the college acknowledged the contributions of the Parent Support Group by presenting the members with the Friend of CJC Award. Another significant award, the Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart (TMLH) Award, was presented to Mr Gerard Lee, Chairman of our SMC, Ms Pauline Goh, the Vice-Chairman, and Associate Professor Patrick Tseng, SMC member. As the ceremony ended with the singing of the college anthem in one resounding voice, there could be no doubt that every CJC student would go on to become a thinker with a mission and leader with a heart, serving the world in truth and in love.

CJCelebrates

3 July

n conjunction with the school’s 40th anniversary, CJCelebrates for 2015 took on a slightly different angle by commemorating the achievements attained by not only present but also past CJCians. Our guest-of-honour was Sr Deirdre O’Loan, CJC’s third principal. Themed Remembering Our Roots, Continuing The Legacy, the annual event was held to showcase the talents of the school’s gifted performers and Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) pieces, as well as to serve as a reminder of where and how we have come thus far.

I

The event started with a video made by the college’s Film, Sound & Video Society, showing the audience all the hard work put into the event by the performers. The dramatic video was well put together and hyped up the audience considerably, heightening the anticipation of the atmosphere. Following the video then was a 4 performance put up by the Guzheng Ensemble. Next up was a heart-wrenching, tear-inducing performance entitled <<rewind>> by Chinese Drama, reminding the audience of what goes behind a mother’s incessant nagging, and how parents are all the same – loving and wanting nothing but the best for the child. The original script by the students, complete with a convincing performance, won them a Certificate of Accomplishment like the Guzheng Ensemble in the recent SYF. The Choir, who achieved the coveted Certificate of Distinction, sang two songs titled ‘Mae-e’ by Kentaro Sato, and ‘Pokpok Alimpako’ by Francisco Feliciano. This was then followed by a performance by the Guitar Ensemble, who, for the very first time, achieved a Certificate of Distinction in the recent SYF.

Literary Evening 3 July

S

Adapted and produced by the students, under the guidance of their Literature tutors, it was a golden opportunity for them to stage their interpretations of literary classics such as Edith Warton’s The Age of Innocence, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter and Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. The evening started with a performance by 2T02’s ‘Revelation 21:21’ – an adaptation of Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter in the form of an ironic twist in the representation of Pearl, the illegitimate offspring of Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale. 5 The exploration of Pearl as a strong character was a creative rendition and interpretation of Hawthorne’s work and for this, 2T02’s production won the Best Script Award for the evening. 2T32’s ‘The Matriarch’ brought the audience into 19th century New York City and the lives of Newland Archer and Ellen Olenska. The staging won the Best Production Design Award, evident in its effective use of masks, a minimalist yet visually stimulating mise-en-scene and good lighting design. The top prize of Best Overall Production went to 2T01’s ‘Sweet Dreams’, a striking production which incorporated elements from Shakespeare’s Othello and Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire. The H1 Literature students staged All My Sons which won the accolade for the Best Ensemble of the evening in recognition of the vivid acting by its principal and supporting cast members. Lastly, the CJC Drama Society ended the night of spectacular performances with the staging of Singaporean playwright Chong Tze Chien’s Poop! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

National Day Celebrations 6 August 1

his year’s National Day marked a significant turning point in Singapore’s long historic journey. Together, we celebrated the 50th year of our nation’s independence — our Golden Jubilee.

T

In CJC, the National Day celebrations began with an observance ceremony led by the various uniformed groups. Witnessing the march-in parade formed up with absolute precision, feelings of patriotism were aroused as the National Anthem was sung in unison. After assembly, the college gathered into their Houses, all set to leave for the three kilometre walkathon – the highlight of this year’s celebrations. As part of the fundraising project with Food From The Heart, the walkathon was held to raise money by collecting donations and pledges for walking a predetermined distance of three kilometres, together as one CJC community. Stretching all the way to Barker Road, the walk gave students an opportunity to discover some of the distinct landmarks located near our home ground. From the playground which was highly talked about to the park located along Malcolm Road, CJC is not just a school located along an expressway, but a school surrounded by beautiful places we never knew existed.

The final event of the day was the unveiling of the large scale chromatography project. The college had collaborated with the Science Centre to carry out this successful project, which was also helmed by the college’s Science Leaders. This artwork was intended for entry into the Singapore Book of Records for the “Largest Singapore Map Made Out Of Chromatography Paper”. Designed in the shape of the Singapore island, the vibrant colours on the chromatography pieces represented the trees, the flowers and the beauty of our garden city, Singapore.

Before the celebration came to a close, the students performed the college cheer and the respective house cheers with much fervour before everyone gathered to take a college photo with the Singapore map, marking the end of a truly momentous National Day celebration for the college. 1 March in of the uniformed groups 2 Mrs Kong launching the walk 3 The flag raising ceremony 4 Teachers, office staff and students having a great time

Teachers’ Day Celebrations

3 September

“Teachers are like candles. They consume themselves to light the way for students.” 3

very year, we celebrate Teachers’ Day to honour our teachers, the students’ unsung heroes, for their dedication and hard work in shaping their students into all-rounded individuals.

E

This year’s celebrations kicked off with a skit, featuring superheroes Mrs Kong, Mr Tan Jek Suan, Mr Eric Lee and Mr Allan Gan saving their students from the clutches of the evil hands of the nasty villain using “flying kicks and punches”. This short and 4 entertaining skit showed how teachers, being the cornerstone of our future, are willing to sacrifice themselves to help us defeat the “villain” within ourselves. Following the skit was a large scale flashmob put up by the student leaders which went all the way up to the second level of the piazza.

5

After the morning segment, it was then time for students to move to the Grandstand to carry out their surprise for their beloved teachers. Upon arrival of the teachers, the students geared up their voices and gave a loud and resounding “Happy Teachers’ Day” greeting to their teachers. The classes then sent representatives to present tokens of appreciation to their respective home tutors. The day carried on as the different classes went to different venues to bond with their teachers through various activities such as playing games, taking fun shots at the photobooth or just sitting around in the piazza having circle time. Besides the class bonding activities, there were many other exciting performances such as the songand-dance items that were put up by our very own talented CJCians at the piazza. After all the fun, all students gathered back at the piazza for the closing ceremony. In her speech, our Principal, Mrs Kong commended the 41st Student Council for their efforts in organizing their very successful first major event, and also expressed her utmost gratitude to all the teachers for their hard work in nurturing their students. The celebrations ended on a high note with a cheer off by all the houses. 1 L-R Ms Chia Shing Li, Ms Charlene Kwa, Ms Renee Chong 2 Mr Lim Kian Boon in a game with his students 3 Mr Aaron Rajoo and Mr Cipto with their students 4 Game of chess

Staff End-of-Year Celebration 3 September his year the staff had a high tea at Grand Park City Hall instead of the traditional dinner held at the end of the year. It was a hilarious afternoon because the staff members turned up in the costumes of Disney characters and the various departments created amusing skits that were based on a Disney theme. Therefore, teachers and the office staff became Cinderella, the Seven Dwarfs, Darth Vader, Snow White, Aladdin, Dalmatians and a whole gamut of Disney characters much to the delight of all present. A more serious note was struck during a video presentation in which new teachers expressed their deep appreciation of their mentors for providing them with much support and guidance in their personal and professional growth. The fun and laughter resumed with quizzes and table games, building camaraderie and collaboration.

JC2 Graduation Day 9 October

ll good things must come to an end, and with bittersweet smiles the JC2 cohort bade a fond farewell to the College during their much-awaited Graduation Ceremony. With the theme “We Light the Way”, the Ceremony was a poignant occasion that marked the official end of their journey with Catholic Junior College, their home for the past two years.

A

The Ceremony commenced with the screening of a heartwarming video showcasing the well-wishes of the College’s teachers to their classes, inciting loud cheers from the students gathered. The House Captains and the Home Tutorial Councillors (HTCs) then entered the auditorium, proudly displaying their ‘class masterpieces’ – small works of art that celebrated the best memories each class had of their JC life. Students had the opportunity to reminisce and reflect on these memories as Father Leslie Raj, the College Chaplain, led them in a short but meaningful prayer service. Principal Mrs Christine Kong then took to the stage and delivered her address, urging students to continue being a force for change in society and reminding them to always keep God with them, whatever path they choose to take. The Colours Awards, the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) certificates and Sports Leaders Awards were given out, along with awards recognising the HTCs, Assistant Home Tutorial Councillors (AHTCs), and Pastoral Care Councillors (PCCs). The Outstanding Contribution Awards and Outstanding Home Class Awards were also presented, with 2T08 clinching the first place for both awards. Subsequently, Ellysya Lee (2T32) and Seah Jit Sheng (2T23), valedictorians for the Arts and the Sciences respectively, gave their speeches, drawing laughter and applause as 10 they recounted their experience in the College and urged the cohort to go forth courageously, embrace challenges, and do everything with great love. After their speeches, the graduation pins, skilfully designed to resemble a dove in flight, were blessed and pinned onto the collar of each and every student by their Home Tutors. The audience was next entertained by a special video featuring candid interviews with students about their experience in the College, earning cheers and peals of laughter. In line with the CJC tradition, the College flame was then passed to each and every student. It was a reminder to the students to always live to inspire others and be a flame lighting the darkness, a guiding light for all to see. In one loud voice, the school song was sung for the final time. While the Ceremony has ended, the flame of truth and love will continue to burn, for many years to come, in the hearts of all gathered.

This was followed by a speech by the college’s Principal, Mrs Christine Kong, who encouraged all students to adopt a “growth mindset” towards all aspects of life. She recounted the story of David Hoe, an inspiring CJC student who had persevered amidst obstacles in his life to pursue success, becoming a youth leader and a scholar, highlighting the importance of facing adversity with positivity and determination.

Then, a symbolic ceremony took place in which the Home Tutor Councillor (HTC) of every class proceeded on stage to place the reflection sheets on which their classmates had written their hopes and dreams into a basket that was then placed under the CJC flame, symbolising the offering of these hopes and expectations to God.

The college then celebrated its entry into the Singapore Book of Records, as Mrs Kong received a certificate honouring the college with the achievement of ‘Largest Singapore Map Made of Chromatography Paper’. To appreciate the parents who have contributed an immense amount of time and effort to the college community, Mrs Kong presented the Parent Support Group (PSG) with a gift to express CJC’s gratitude for their dedication to the college, A video montage created by the college’s Film, Sound and Video Society was then played for everyone to not only reminisce on the memorable college year of 2015, but also to look forward to 2016.

his year in 2015, both the girls and the boys faced stiff competition. As such, both teams lost in the first round despite putting in their fullest efforts and not giving up without a fight. One notable feat during this year’s National Inter- School Badminton Championship was that the girls managed to win half their matches and triumphed over PJC, obtaining an overwhelming victory. Although both teams did not clinch any awards and positions, one thing that the team had in common with all the other CJ badminton teams that were before them was their burning passion for badminton and an unyielding spirit which allows the team to give their best when faced with adversity.

he CJC Basketball Team put in a tremendous amount of work under the leadership of our new coach, Mr Aaron Teo, alongside our teachers-in-charge, Mrs Tan and Mr Lim. Through the diligent training sessions, the team had the opportunity to bond closer as a cohesive team and fostered a strong sense of brotherhood. Training not only taught us the technical skills of the game, but also ignited in us the fighting spirit which propelled us through the competitions. With the close interaction of the team off the court, the players forged deeper bonds through channels like the basketball camp and after-school study sessions. Given the privilege to represent the school for the annual National Inter-School â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division Championship, we stayed true to our core values of Excellence, Determination and Passion, persevering and striving together as one.

ur CJC Bowling team has grown in various aspects. Many have become competent bowlers despite picking up the sport for the first time last year. Our players displayed sheer determination and commitment to learn and improve their bowling skills through the short span of one and a half years of training. Besides the rigorous training and hard work, our team also developed camaraderie and unity through the additional bonding activities and team dinners together. Our passion for bowling was also reflected and translated into results, with both the boys and the girls doing exceedingly well, surpassing our own expectations to achieve 4th overall placing for the Boys’ team and 6th overall for the Girls’ team. Andrew Sin and Benjamin Sin also did the school proud when they bowled their way to clinch the second runner-up place in the Boys Doubles event and qualified for the Masters Final. Indeed, it is a remarkable achievement for CJC Bowling and we look forward to repeating or improving our achievements next year.

espite joining canoeing with little or no experience, our CJC canoeists trained hard and went up against canoeing powerhouses at both the National Junior Canoeing Championships and the National “A” Division Championships. Putting aside their lack of experience as compared to the other competitors, the team managed to get into the semi-finals and the finals. Nicole Low from 2T14, Ellysya Lee from 2T32, Sarah Lim from 2T34 and Mah Chia Ling from 2T18 clinched 5th placing for 1000m K4 finals while Joshua Lee from 2T29, Mok Zhengda from 2T22, Benedict Lim from1T05 and Ian Low from 1T05 came in 6th for their 500m K4 finals and 1000m K4 finals race. In addition, Kwan Wai Hin from 2T15 managed to achieve 6th position in his 500m C1 semi-finals race.

Although canoeing was a short journey, it has been a very fulfilling experience where we learnt to stretch our physical and mental limits under the guidance of our captain, Edmond Yeo. Going through tough training was one thing, facing it together was another and that shaped our team into a family. ‘Mentis Opprimo Materia’ , which means ‘Mind Over Matter’ was the motto that we have lived by, and we will continue to live by it wherever we may be.

he CJC Chinese Drama presented the play <Rewind> at the 2015 Singapore Youth Festival and attained the Certificate of Accomplishment. The preparation for SYF was definitely a tough journey for us because most of our members are new to the performing arts. In addition, the script for the play was crafted from scratch. There were many challenges along the way but we managed to overcome them as a team, coupled with the support from our dedicated teachers and instructor. The script of <Rewind> was revised and performed during CJCelebrates 2015 to include the majority of our members in the cast, in order to give opportunities to as many of our members as possible to perform on stage.

T

Bonding activities such as a barbeque, a photoshoot and study sessions were organised to help the members to unwind from all the intense training and competitions, providing support and helping the members to strive towards greater heights. We also promoted our CCA activities through CJC Open House and the CCA Bazaar.

The Choir has attained many achievements over the years. In the inaugural overseas tour in 2006, the Choir was awarded the Gold award and a special prize for the outstanding performance of Mocnik’s Verbum Supernum Prodiens at the 16th International Festival of Advent and Christmas Music with Petr Eben Prize, Prague. In 2010, the Choir attained 2 4 Gold awards in 2010 Young Prague, winning both Youth and Spirituals categories, and the Outstanding Conductor’s Prize.

Having won many accolades in the short span of time, CJC Choir remains a warm and unassuming family where each singer makes a difference and each voice is nurtured to its optimum. The CJC Choir 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 for us, allowing us to achieve our greatest potential.

ain, suffering, torture, words that often come to mind when one thinks of long distance running. 4 Riding through the highs of victories and the lows of defeat, the only constant was the blood, sweat and tears poured out on the track, training to be the best. But it was all worth it.

P

At the ‘A’ Division Cross Country Championship held at Bedok Reservoir, the morning air was fraught with tension, with crossers from every school desperately struggling to surge ahead of the pack. With steely determination and fire in their eyes the girls put up an amazing performance, with Mariana Ramos Branicio(1T06) achieving 17th place and Pok Liya Lydia(2T22) in 24th place, coming in just 15 seconds behind the last top twenty positioned runner. The girls achieved 7th position overall, doing the school proud.

5 6

Similarly, the male 7 crossers faced a daunting task ahead of them. With little to no running background from every member of the team, they were the underdogs of the competition. Yet, despite the odds, the team pulled off a remarkable finish with Justin Lim Xue Tao(2T16), coming in just 14 seconds after the person in the 20th position. Overall, the boys clinched the 7th position too, bringing glory to the school. Despite not hitting the target they had set the previous year, much credit must be given to them all for the commitment and dedication to the sport. For putting themselves through the rigorous training and giving their all to go out in a blaze of glory, they, like the others before them have carved their names in CJCross history and inspired the new J1 team to “go big or go home” .

he Editorial Club has a long history that spans forty years of CJC’s existence. The first Editorial Board was formed in 1975 with 14 student members led by Moira Lee. The board comprised 7 students each from the Chinese stream and the English stream as CJC was bilingual in its early years. The first college magazine produced in 1975 was a tribute to all who contributed to setting CJC on its feet during the first year of its existence. Since 1975 the Editorial Board has grown in its responsibilities, producing not only the annual college magazine, but the newsletter the Flame as well, and contributing articles to the college website.

T

“The Right to Write” Our members contribute articles for the Flame, the college website and the annual college magazine. We diligently aim to provide detailed reporting of college activities, while appreciating the role that every CJCian plays in the success of these activities. This year, Editorial Club members welcomed the opportunity to report on major events in commemoration of CJC’s 40th Anniversary. The commemorative first issue of the Flame for this year featured articles that celebrated the legacy of the College in educating and nurturing generations of students.

Good English Week In line with Singapore’s 50th year of independence, the theme of the annual Good English Week was “Culture, Context, Community” focusing on the significance of the English language in the creation of the Singaporean identity. We put up an exhibition with eye-catching posters on a diversity of topics, such as varieties of English, the history of the English language and Singapore English, as well as the writings of celebrated local authors such as Catherine Lim and Edwin Thumboo. Throughout the week, we collaborated with Speakers’ Ink during morning assemblies to provide language trivia on Singapore English. In addition, we facilitated language games for the student community with an element of friendly competition to inspire CJCians to develop a deeper interest in the English language.

Achievements JC2 member and Chief Student Writer, Melissa Khoo (2T32) won the top prize and emerged as Champion of the Sino Junior Reporter Programme 2015. This programme was organized by the Sino Group and The South China Morning Post, with the support of the National Youth Council of Singapore. Working on the theme of ‘Heritage’, Melissa submitted a photograph of

her neighbourhood and a write-up on architectural heritage in Singapore. The Editorial Club is proud of her stellar performance and achievement. As members of the Editorial Club we are constantly able to enrich ourselves through the exposure to the world of journalism. As a CCA, we bonded and grew through our common passion for the written word.

Poop! deals with themes of grief, suicide, death, and the challenging process of moving on. The JC1s were invited by Artswok Collective to stage Poop! in Peer Pleasure, a youth theatre festival held at Esplanade – Theatre by the Bay. This was an important milestone in the history of the Society, as this is the first time it performed in a professional venue to a paying audience. Those Who Can’t Teach is a play about the struggles of students and teachers in the education system. The JC2s staged this production during a lunchtime performance to warm reception by their schoolmates.

Through these productions, the English Drama Society has discovered that theatre is not merely about keeping standards or outshining ‘competitors’, but about conveying a message that speaks to the hearts of the audience.

he Environmental Science Society is a club committed to changing the mindsets of the school and society about environmental issues such as global warming, the need to recycle and our depleting resources. With a firm belief in the need to conserve our planet for future generations, we champion green habits and ideas in the school campus by organising events to raise environmental awareness.

T

Earth Day Programme The flagship programme for the Society this year was holding a week-long programme in April to commemorate Earth Day. This year, the activities included reading the Earth Day message from our Minister of Environment and Water Resources, an exhibition on recycling and mosquito breeding sites in school, a pledge board to encourage students to take action to save the environment and the implementation of a recycling drive for plastic bottles and paper. The society bought recycling bins and members provided a service to the college by regularly emptying the bins.

Greenwave Continuing the tradition of our seniors, this year we pruned and fertilised the Kayu Arang tree which our society planted 4 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greenwaveâ&#x20AC;? is a project under NParks to involve the community in the conservation and care for our environment. The event was also symbolic as the seniors handed over the responsibility of environmental conservation to their juniors.

ince its inception in 2002, CJC Fencing has won many trophies and continues to make CJC an attractive school of choice for experienced fencers. Right from the start, Anthony Tsang (2002) and Jay Foo (2003) already represented Singapore in competitions in the Asia-Pacific region. Soon after getting our own room 5 in 2004, CJC earned our first gold medal through Jeraldine Koh (2005) in the Individual Epee event. In 2009, CJC achieved our first Men’s ‘A’ Division Overall Champion. More recently between 2011 and 2012, 2015 SEA Games gold medallist (Women’s Foil Team) Liane Wong (2012) also represented both our college and our country extensively during her time in CJC.

Our fencers are characterised by the spirit of adventure and constantly look out for different avenues to push their limits. Graduated seniors also frequently return to spar with the current fencers, handing down the legacy of the college values of Truth and Love since the beginning. Recent achievements include Leon Chan’s (2T17) 8th placement in rankings of the Men’s Sabre Individual Event in the Novice Fencing Championships, as well as the overall third placing for both the men’s and the women’s teams in the National Inter-School Fencing Championships 2015. This year, Rachel Lam(1T02, 2015) attained silver for the Individual Women’s Foil Event and joint bronze for Individual Women’s Sabre, whilst Nicholas Choong (1T06, 2015) clinched the joint bronze for the Individual Men’s Foil. 1 Cheryl and Roshnie scoring a point against each other in an epee match 2 Isaac scores a point against Jie Yang as our other fencers watch intently 3 Leon performing an impressive stunt and scoring against Wilson in the process 4 Display of trophies as well as epee fencing demonstration during Open House 2015

We also gained further first aid exposure by taking part in the Annual First Aid Photo-Quiz Competition, where two of our members, Tang Jia Ming (1T21) and Charmaine See (2T21) clinched 3rd and 6th place out of over 150 participants. Besides providing first aid services to the college during various school events, we trained our schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports leaders, equipping them with basic first aid knowledge and skills during the Sports Leaders Training Workshop: First Aid Module, allowing them to treat common sports injuries and promote safety in sports. With the entry of the new EXCO, we are optimistic in looking forward to another 5 successful year of exciting projects and events, continuing to fulfil our duties in providing quality first aid. We look forward to contributing our services to the college in many more years to come.

loorball is a relatively new CCA, being only 4 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. The 3 girls managed to clinch victory against TPJC with a scoreline of 7-2. Although the Boys’ Team did not win, they had 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 5 greater heights.

The team was put through strenuous training sessions involving set pieces, game play, transition play and tactical play in preparation for the football season. Although training can be very tough and tiring, it is through such sessions that the team learnt to be more resilient. Furthermore, it is really through the blood and sweat that the team grew and formed life-long relationships. As CJ40 is being celebrated this year, here is a blast from the past. For 3 consecutive years from 1975 to 1977, CJC were champions of the National Schools Post Secondary Soccer Competition, in particular, beating hot favourites, Geylang Serai to win the 1976 title. Also in 1986 and 1987 CJC’s football team emerged 2nd in the National Schools ‘A’ Division Competition at the Jalan Besar Stadium under our very own soccer-master, Mr Adrian Ho! CJC has had many glorious moments in football and the team will continue to strive to bring further glory to the college.

The year started with self-initiated student projects such as CCA Posters featuring all Sports and Performing Arts CCA, and also publicity posters for CJCelebrates. FSV embarked on its maiden participation at CJCelebrates with an exciting multimedia exhibition which featured members’ exhilarating art works. In conjunction with CJC’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations, FSV set up the heritage ‘hanging’ gallery during the exhibition to share photos of many past events. Beyond the school, FSV members took up many opportunities to develop themselves aesthetically and benefited the larger community as well. These included facilitating a workshop at the Singapore Student Photography Conference (SSPC) for participants from other schools, taking part in exhibitions (SSPC SG50 Exhibition, Ngee Ann Photographic Exhibition) and participating in the “TwentyFour 2015” motion picture competition.

he Catholic Junior College Guitar Ensemble has 80 members with a like-minded passion and interest in the classical guitar and music. The Guitar Ensemble also serves as a dedicated platform for players to interact and learn together to hone their guitar skills.

T

Founded in 2003, the Ensemble has progressed and achieved great things despite its relatively recent inception. For the past few years, we have been consistently performing well in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) by attaining Silver awards for 3 years and a subsequent Certificate of Accomplishment. In 2015, for the first time in Catholic Junior College history, we clinched a Certificate of Distinction in the Singapore Youth Festival, a feat achieved by only 7 other Ensemble groups this year. Aside from external competitions, we have also performed in joint concerts with other ensembles at the Esplanade, in lunch-time concerts, as well as other College events, such as the annual CJCelebrates, making us a regular feature in the CJC performing arts roster. The Ensemble has shared many memorable experiences through playing together in practices and performances. Under the unwavering support and guidance of our teachers-in-charge and instructors and the enthusiasm and commitment of every player, we are confident that the Ensemble will grow from strength to strength and continue to enthral audiences with our music. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

he CJC Guzheng Ensemble was 3 established in 2005 evolving from the Chinese Orchestra to a Guzheng Ensemble. This year marks the 10th year of the CJ Guzheng Ensemble and it has certainly been an eventful one. The Guzheng Ensemble started 2015 with a successful Open House and CCA Bazaar, recruiting many individuals passionate about performing and learning the Guzheng. The ensemble also performed in the annual Lunchtime Concert - a prelude to CJCelebrates! 2015 - before we participated in the biennial Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Presentation with only slightly less than two months of practice. After persevering through long hours of practice and overcoming many difficulties, the Ensemble managed to achieve the Certificate of Accomplishment. It was a great feat considering the fact that we are a small ensemble with many beginners and inexperienced performers. The Ensemble also forged strong bonds between the seniors and juniors as we enjoyed a night of fun and games at a Post SYF Celebration. Returning to school fully recharged, the Ensemble put up a spectacular performance at the annual CJCelebrates! and the JC2 seniors bade farewell to the JC1s juniors after their last performance together as an Ensemble. The JC1s juniors showed their appreciation to their seniors by making personalised gifts for them and surprising them with a farewell party. This friendship between the seniors and juniors will definitely last a lifetime! The CJC Guzheng Ensemble will continue to work hard in the coming year and produce greater and better music!

ymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring flexibility, balance and control. Catholic Junior College offers all three disciplines 4 of gymnastics: Rhythmic Gymnastics, which emphasises on dance-like rhythmic routines, with the use of ribbons or hoops; Artistic Gymnastics, where gymnasts present their strength and flexibility through apparatus such as rings, bars, balance beam; and Trampoline Gymnastics, where gymnasts perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. Throughout CJC’s history, Gymnastics has done the school proud by performing commendably in various inter-school competitions. Jacqueline Wee Hwee Ping from year 2000 achieved remarkable results in the Inter-School Artistic Gymnastic Competition by being the overall champion and in 2011 CJC’s gymnastic team achieved extraordinary results with the trampoline men’s and women’s teams attaining third while the rhythmic gymnastics team clinched the 1st runner-up position. This year, CJC’s gymnastics team achieved the following medals:

The projects were aligned with the club’s theme of ‘Caritate’ and reflected our desire to serve the underprivileged through sustainable projects. Our collaboration with Sustainable Cambodia to build bio-filters for the villagers in Cambodia is a step towards creating more impactful projects. It was an encouraging nod to our efforts when we clinched the Gold Award for Best Interact Club Project from the Rotary Club.

Over the year, the club has initiated various projects to help the diverse segments in our community. The Interactors held a half-day workshop at the charity organisation Very Special Arts Singapore to help individuals with mental disabilities better express their thoughts and emotions. They also held a rice donation drive for the low-income families in Whampoa Estate and the organisation Willing Hearts. Students also initiated projects to help raise funds for the needy students in the college and made small tokens for their peers to motivate them during the Mid-Year Examinations. Members of the club also showed commitment in their participation in weekly community involvement programmes (CIPs) at several locations. These include the Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA), Youth with a Potential (YW@P), Holy Innocents’ Primary School (HIPS), Beyond Social Services, St. Luke’s Eldercare, Caregiving Welfare Association (CWA) and Bishan Home. Interactors went beyond their weekly CIPs by initiating several projects at their locations, including math and science workshops at YW@P and a Chinese New Year celebration for the aged at AWWA.

In addition, the club had an Overseas Service Learning Programme to Cambodia where the Interactors taught English to the pupils at Don Bosco Salabalath. It was an enriching experience as they helped out at the school’s rice plantation and found out more about Cambodia’s socio-political climate from the students at Mgr Paul Tep Im Centre, cultivating their empathy in the interaction process. The Interact Club is grateful for the support from the College and the community stakeholders in our service learning and fundraising projects.

or over 30 years, the 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 both in the National ‘A’ Division Judo Championships and the Kyu Grade Championship. This year, there were consistent performances from our Judokas and we managed to clinch 2 gold and 2 silver medals. That is not all, most of our JC2 Judokas went on to obtain their orange belts later in the year, a huge 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.

Up till then, musicians were always found for services and mass on an ad hoc basis. That year, two teachers and a group of three students met for the first time to brainstorm how to ensure that musicians were always readily available to play and sing at major events as well as for mass. This small group of like- minded individuals soon grew into a team of about 30 musicians ready to play the guitar, the piano or just sing in a choir when the occasion called for it.

It was not always smooth sailing though. A CCA like this that does not involve competition or external events could not be counted as a first CCA to be fair to current CJCians and so all membership was on a completely voluntary basis. Being a second CCA, it was next to impossible to find a common time for its members to meet to pray and plan for the term. Thus the first few executive committees struggled to find a balance to ensure that there would always be people serving without over taxing the few who made the time. Things began to turn around when one of the Exco teams decided to turn to God as the fundamental focus, instead of focusing on just duty to the college. Cell groups were formed on different days, each led by a different Exco member so that all would have the opportunity to allow God to enrich their lives as well as their talents. Attendance increased and the drop out rate fell. It has been a wonderful 7 years, growing as a CCA and as a God-centred group. We look forward to the CCA growing in size as more CJCians opt to serve the college and its staff and students with their God-given talents.

015 has proved to be a challenging year for the CJC Rugby team. For the first time in many years, the team comprised athletes from different backgrounds with little or no experience in rugby. Despite our relative inexperience, we were devoted to readying ourselves physically and mentally for the game. We committed ourselves to grueling training sessions under our coach and teachers and even went the extra mile to organize amongst ourselves gym sessions out of curriculum hours, knowing how demanding the physical game of rugby is.

The reward for our hard work and commitment came when we were able to clinch the coveted Plate Championship at the annual Singapore Cricket Club Rugby Schools 7s Competition at the Padang. It was a match down to the wire with both sides facing injuries through the course of the tournament. We had to persevere without substitution and with much grit, able to overcome the odds to win the Plate category. It was definitely a moment to relish that will linger on through our lives. Our relative inexperience, however, was more apparent in the annual National InterSchools Rugby 15s Tournament in the 2015 season. Having been grouped with powerhouses SAJC and RI, we tried our best to put up the greatest of fights but it was definitely a bitter pill to swallow. Nevertheless, we learned valuable lessons of perseverance and as clichĂŠd as it sounds, the do or die spirit. It is here, in CJC Rugby, we learned the meaning of brotherhood; to bleed for the person next to you, to fall and pick yourself up back again and that any team can only be as strong as the weakest link. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

he Shooting Club has become a well-established niche sport in CJC, one that has shaped the character of many young men and women as a cohesive team through the years. This CCA started as Air Rifle but has evolved to become the Shooting Club. Many of our shooters started as novices but have won medals in successive ‘A’ Division Championships. Some of our shooters have represented Singapore at international competitions and emerged as champions.

T

We focus on mental training, whereby our members have emerged as resilient individuals through overcoming many obstacles in their journey in CJC. As passionate and resilient individuals of the sport, members have dedicated many hours to hone their shooting skills. 2015 has been a very eventful and hectic year for our shooters. Both the NTU and NUS invitational shoots were eye opening experiences for the shooting team, pitting our shooters against other more experienced shooters. The CCA experience culminated in the National Inter-School ‘A’ Division Shooting Championship.

The Oratorical Wing of Speakers’ Ink has once again done the college proud, with Lukasz Yim (2T22) reaching the finals and the Silver Honours Roll of the Annual InterCollege Impromptu Oratoricals 2015 organised by the Tampines Junior College Gavel Club, demonstrating a captivating display of eloquence and wit! JC1 students Daksha (1T26) and Sabrena (1T01) produced some fine performances at the Dunman High Invitational Competition with speeches related to the SG50 theme. The team put the public-speaking skills acquired during training sessions in numerous college events such as Open House, Sports Carnival, Chinese New Year, ‘A’ Division Golf and Bowling, Mother Tongue Language Fortnight, Annual Awards Day and the Parents Information Evening, keeping our college members definitely busy.

The Debate Wing too has once again brought glory to the college. In 2015, Lucien Wee did the college proud in ranking as the Top 19th Debater nationally at the 2015 MOEACJC Inter-Collegiate Debate Championships. The ‘Ink’ as a whole has been proudly organizing our college’s annual Flame Wars Inter-House Debate Championships which was aimed at introducing the wider school population to debate; and also collaborated with other CCAs such as the Editorial Club in spearheading Speak Good English Week and the Political Science Society.

015 has been a great year for the Strategy Games Club. The club has participated in numerous competitions and returned with outstanding awards. The year started off with the organisation of the annual CJC Inter-college Chinese Chess Competition that was held in March.

Team CJC achieved an overall 3rd, with Ng Jing Kiat and Wang Zekun getting an individual 2nd and 9th placing respectively. Apart from this, the Chinese Chess team also participated in other competitions and has attained commendable results.

VDP is part of a global Vincentian family. Since its inception in CJC in 1975, members have been committed to bringing good cheer to various underprivileged communities, including the elderly, the mentally-challenged, migrants and needy families.

This year, SVDP embarked on a new mission: befriending the elderly in the Senior Group Home@Pipit Road. To quote Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, there is a poverty of loneliness in developed countries. While the Home provides these elderly with basic necessities, we shower them with love through our companionship. 5 6

Since 2012, we have been reaching out to the migrant workers. In collaboration with 1T25 and the Archdiocesan Commission for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, we distributed basic necessities to and organised an appreciation party for them. Hearing their stories touched many hearts; their sacrifice for their families is truly admirable. In giving, we have been blessed with broadened perspectives and meaningful joy!

JC Swim, although small in number, is a closely knitted team striving to achieve greatness and bond together through many external events. We were able to take this small number of people in the team and turn it into an advantage by facilitating more team bonding activities. This allows us to enjoy training sessions more and even look forward to them. Despite the fact that swimming is a rather individualistic CCA, we emphasize team camaraderie despite our differences and cheer each other on to work towards improvements in our performances.

015 has been eventful and fruitful for the CJC Symphonic Band (CJCSB) with a few highlights. Prior to the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation for Concert Bands, CJCSB had a band exchange with other colleges. On 30 April, we performed “Singapura Suite Movement 2” and a choice piece “And The Multitude With One Voice Spoke” for SYF. Our efforts paid off as we clinched the Certificate of Distinction under the baton of our conductor, Mr Tan Thiam Hee.

2

On 28 June, CJCSB had a combined concert, organised by the Kim Seng Wind Symphony to commemorate SG50, which served as a platform to prepare ourselves for CJCelebrates. CJCSB delivered our SYF choice piece and “Highlights from Spirited Away” during CJCelebrates. The night officially ended with the performing arts groups delivering “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.

5

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 us to perform our best. Finally, the 2014-2015 EXCO members have also done well in leading the band and we sincerely wish them all the best for their future endeavours.

JC Tennis is a well-bonded team with strongly forged friendships and camaraderie. They train intensively twice a week, coupled with weekly physical conditioning to enhance mobility and reflexes. The coach conducts technical and tactical training, honing and developing the skills of the students, including frequent match play to allow the players to adapt to the competition feel of the ‘A’ Division competition.

CJC Tennis has usually lived up to their potential by qualifying for the quarter-finals. The batch of 2015 has done their predecessors proud by advancing to the quarter-finals once again, especially the Girls’ team which achieved it for the first time in 4 years. The Boys’ team fought hard in the group stages, defeating ACS (Int’l) and YJC. The Girls’ team gave their all to overcome SRJC, DHS and TJC to make it to the quarter-finals. 1 L to R: Sophie Yan, Cassandra Choo, Emerson Chong, Marcus Loh, Claudia Cheng, Janine Teo 2 Backhand: Emerson Chong 3 L to R: Cho Yoon Hee, Travis Ng, Michael Jiang Shan, Deborah Ho 4 Forehand: Marcus Loh 5 Serve: Cassandra Choo 6 Forehand: Claudia Cheng 7 Tennis Team 2015

he 2015 season was certainly a fruitful one for the Track and Field team, with commendable results at the various track meets the team participated in throughout the year, such as the Singapore Athletic Association Series, the Singapore Press Holdings Inter-School Relay, the Singapore Youth and Junior Athletic Championships, and, most importantly, the National Inter-School Championships, where, among our CJC contingent, we witnessed the triumph of the human spirit over insurmountable odds.

This was a tangible result of our physically demanding training regimen where not only were our speed, muscular endurance and explosive energy developed under the watch of our coach Mr Loh Chan Pew, but it also taught us key values such as resilience, which was seen in how 400m runner Jonathan Go recovered from a torn ACL just a year earlier to qualify for the ‘A’ Division Boys’ final. In a similarly resilient fashion, 100m runner Au Yee Sin admirably overcame the odds (and accompanying pressure) stacked against her to claim the ‘A’ Division Girls’ crown, outrunning the other favourites for the title and doing CJC proud, and emulating alumnus Amanda Teo’s similar gold medalwinning exploits in the 400m 9 years earlier.

Apart from bonding during training, the team also bonds through setting up and running booths at the various school events, such as the annual Open House and the CCA Bazaar, as we convert our on-track chemistry to an off-track harmony. We would also like to thank our teachers-incharge for constantly following us down for training and also for being an ever-present, stabilising presence at competitions. Truly, 2015 has been an eventful one for all of us, in our own special ways.

It was not easy joining the ultimate Frisbee scene with little to no experience; however, it was the attitude that proved to each and everyone in the team the power of hardwork and determination. To each member in the team, going “all in” was never giving up even when the odds were stacked against us, it has truly brought us together as a team and strengthened us mentally, physically and psychologically. From facing tough competition and 2 emerging top 8 in the Inter Junior College Ultimate Championships, it has been nothing short of a fulfilling journey with sweat and tears.

very Thursday and Saturday, the grandstand would be filled with intense rallying and the occasional slam of a spike hitting the ground ferociously. This batch has been no different, embodying the same tenacious spirit of the game this CCA is known for, demonstrating desire and thirst to succeed. With the guidance of our coaches, we soared to greater heights, challenging rival colleges at the National Inter-school Volleyball Championships (‘A’ Division) with close fights. The Girls’ team made it to the quarter finals.

Though the results were not what we hoped for, we cheered as one and fought as a team. We may not have been the ones to bring home medals, but we graduate as a spirited team that fought with comradeship and never left anyone behind. Be it victory or defeat, we remain a team and we will never crumble. 4
