Shocks, Trembles and Quakes

Quakes and natrual phenom ena shake the world as each student feels their own indep endent trembles at school

First was the Haitian Earthq uake that shattered one of the poorest nations in the world; next was the Chilean earthq uake that altered the earth’s axis and shortened the length of a day by 1.26 microseconds; then came the Chinese earthquake in the pro vin ce of Qinghai that reached 7.1 on the Richter. Though much of the news covered the toilet economy and how it got better, then worse, then better, then worse again, the past year was one of not onl y economic turmoil and the financial trem ors that shook the world, but also one of earthquakes and other natura l phenomena that literally roc ked the earth. But as we learned, earthquak es are rarely over after one Aftershocks follow, sometim quake. es smaller, sometimes larg er, than the initial. And while we’re in no way attempting to compare the dramas of natural disasters to the dramas of high school, we also learne d this through the shocks and trembles we exp erie nce d here at SAS. And everyone feels these sho cks and trembles differently freshmen, the initial quake . For is starting high school, the aftershock being the first time in the cafeteria, the first finals week, the firs t experiences on varsity or JV team, and being the youngest of the hig h school. For new students, it’s the quake of starting a new life in a new country, the aftershock of adjusting and starting over in a new environ ment. For seniors, it’s the quake of fina lly getting into, or being reje cte d from, your dream college, with the aftershock representing the reality of responsibility and change tha t ensues. Everyone in this school fac es sudden disturbances and shocks. But the actual disturbance, or the initial quake, usually las ts for the briefest period of time. The important part of it all, the par t that lasts the longest, the part that det ermines character, the part that dictates everything, is how we deal with that initial shock. We too k a look and remembered the good, the bad, the happy, sad, strange , funny, and random ways that students had for dealing with life. Thi s was our year. This was the aftershock. By: Jamie Lim

Letter from the Editors Summing up this school

Looking back at the afterm

ath.

year is not an easy task; and finding a the me wa s just as hard. Aftershock is defined as the effect, result or reperc uss ion of an event. Our aftershocks we re that spilt second of em otion upon hearing about something momentous in our young lives, good or bad. We felt it with death of cul tural icons - the king of po p Michael Jackson, style icon Farra h Fawcett, dance legend Patrick Swayze, and others. We felt it after hearing about the earthquake in Haiti, and the volcanic eruption in Ice land. The seniors felt it after submit ting their college applicatio ns, after receiving their first letter of admission, and after rea lizing that there was only one month left of high school. The fre shman felt it as soon as they took the ir first steps up the front of the high school in August. Whatever emotions follow ed, that heart-stopping fee ling is difficult to forget. This book captures all the craziness and commotion of the past year: the memorable dance off at the last pep rally of the year, the explosion of bo y bands, the new friendshi ps formed, the unity of the student bo dy. Whether you are a senior receiving your last Island er, or a freshman thumbing throu gh your first high school yearbook, we truly hope you enjoy this book and remember this unique year.

2009-2010

The Eye goes online: High school publication follows newspaper trend in new web page home. Like other print publications, The Eye is taking the next step and is going online this year. “The truth is, I’ve known for about three or four years that The Eye would have to go online,” adviser Mark Clemens said. “It’s a pretty scary thing. But I’ve been reading about what newspapers are doing to survive, so I have a pretty good idea of what we need to do.” The Eye Online will feature stories from the print edition, as well as multimedia, photo galleries and blogs. It will be updated regularly to keep SAS up to date the latest news.

Senior writes, sells software for iPhone, iTouch on App Store Senior Sahil Lavingia is already making a mark by designing and selling iPhone applications though Apple’s application store, more commonly known as the “App Store.” “The App Store is the next big thing in the software development industry, just like Facebook applications once were,” Lavingia said. “So I really wanted to get involved.” He has developed applications including “Twizzle,” “Color Stream,” and “Taxi Lah!”.

Two students expelled for theft, one suspended for vandalism: Two junior males in-

volved in on-campus theft and off-campus vandalism expelled, while a third student given in-school suspension for vandalism. Two junior male students were expelled for stealing on campus grounds and another was suspended for breaking into a public residence. The two students were first seen on security camera moving through areas in the high school and the video footage was sent from the security office to the administration. Incidents of stealing vary at different levels and Merbach said that when a new case is opened, the entire incident is looked at closely. “When we have a situation with theft we look at a lot of factors,” Merbach said. “ Is there a difference between walking by a table in the cafeteria with a five dollar

Fool’s names in public places; 10 percent of top 500 ‘stalk’ applicants Rumors about college admissions officers who look students up on Facebook inspired some seniors to change their names. “It’s social knowledge, and it’s what my friends are talking about,” said senior Mitch Hulse, who had not changed his name at press time. In a Wall Street Journal article, “College applicants, Beware: Your Facebook Page is Showing,” reporter John Hechinger references a Kaplan survey that found 10 percent of college admissions officers

bill and taking it and purposely going and stealing something.” In this case, the two boys who were expelled not only participated in an oncampus theft, but the two also joined another in an outside incident where the three vandalized and broke into a home. The third only received a suspension. Although they have been expelled, the two boys can re-apply to SAS next year. “I think that most of us here have that idea of compassion and honesty and I don’t think who we have here are people that go around stealing,” Merbach said. “Most of us learn in kindergarten that we don’t take things when they don’t belong to us.”

stalking applicants on social networking sites. Of that 10 percent, surveyed from the 500 top 500 U.S. colleges, 38 percent said what they saw had a negative impact on the applicant. While changing names seems to be the simplest solution, it might not be the best. Counselor Dale Ford said that eliminating inappropriate content or pictures is the best way. “Most colleges don’t have the time or inclination to Google or Facebook their applicant,” Ford said.


School leans green and saves energy, but costs go up: Facilities and

services office take aggressive steps to reduce energy, water consumption but electricity costs rise. The SAS Facilities and Services Office has recently took aggressive steps to reduce energy and water consumption on campus. Director Anthony Wong said the price hike in oil, the economic crisis and the growing price of utilities were initial triggers for the reduction of energy. Water consumption has fallen by half since 2007. In 2008-2009 the school consumed only 88,508 cubic meters, compared to 167,533 cubic meters the year before.

Hallam continues to teach and battle cancer: English teacher and mara-

thon veteran undergoes surgery for bone cancer.

An icon for healthy living at SAS, English teacher Andrew Hallam was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer called chomdrosarcoma. Hallam left for surgery on the Nov 14 and returned to teach this semester a month and a half later, wearing a device that looked like a centerion’s breastplate. “My first reaction when I heard that I had cancer was a purposeful one. I was slightly scared but my main response was to find out how they could remove the cancer,” Hallam said. Since chemotherapy is not effective for this type of cancer, doctors removed eight cm of three separate ribs, a small slice of his

lungs and a part of his spine taken out in a six-hour long surgery. Winner of last year’s J.P. Morgan Corporate Singapore challenge, Hallam is still keen to pursue running. “I would like to run a 5.6 km race at the end of April,” Hallam said. “If I place top 20 this year, it would be a greater achievement than to have gotten first last year.” While there is no clear idea about how the bones will respond to this therapy, Hallam is optimistic about recovering. “Obstacles are what you see when you lose sight of your goal,” Hallam said.

SAS sees record number of students pass AP exams in 2009 Not only did SAS students take a record number of AP’s last year, but they also had record results in exams. While students have generally proven successful in AP exams scores with approximately 90 percent receiving a three or higher for the last decade, 2009 was still a remarkable year for AP students. In 2008, 91.6 percent of AP students received a passing grade - a grade between 3 and 5. This percentage rose to a record 95 percent in 2009. A 3.4 percent jump may not seem remarkable at first, but since 90 percent of students consistently place in the passing range between 3 and 5, even a small difference in scores is considered a significant achievement.

Déjà vu: Same warring factions that moved IASAS softball from Bangkok to Singapore last year at it again.

A street protest in Bangkok the weekend of March 12th threatened to paralyze the city and bring down the government. Just as Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva canceled a planned visit to Australia because of the protests, the International School Bangkok (ISB) administration canceled a track exchange. Weeks later during the weekend of IASAS, the protests turned violent, as the Red Shirts stormed the Parliament and threw blood on the steps. The Thai government declared a state of emergency just as the softball and badminton teams arrived in Bangkok. ISB closed down on Friday, postponing the tournament. The school opened the next day for IASAS however, and altered the three-day schedule into a two-day tournament.

36.3 % of students said that they owned a fake ID 80 % of students said that they got fake IDs to go clubbing 26 % of students said that they use their fake IDs 1-2 times a week 74 % of students said that they got their fake IDs from a Singapore source 51.3 % of students said that their parents would not get mad at them if they got caught with a fake ID.

Test driving an American Education: Students leave local

school under special circumstances. For some, local schools are a snug fit and academic success is a package deal. For others, local schools bind learning to an exam-oriented syllabus. By law, Singaporeans must attend local schools. Problems arise when students perform poorly on the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). A lengthy academic assessment, the PSLE streams sixth-graders into unofficially ranked secondary schools, including ACS-I and Raffles Girls’ School. “To come here [Singaporeans] have to convince the Ministry of Education (MOE) that there is a reason they should be allowed out of the local system,” Ford said.

Fake IDs: Students use fake IDs to gain entrance into bars, clubs, movies, and to buy cigarettes.

It is not uncommon for students at SAS to own fake IDs. In an Eye sample of 432 students, 36.1 percent said they owned a fake ID. “My assumption is that there are a lot out there,” Deputy Principal Douglas Neihart said, “but I have no way of knowing, and I have nothing to base that assumption on.” Neihart said that students have been caught with fake IDs in the past. “In [a] situation recently, somebody ha`d turned in a wallet that they had found,” he said. “In our process of finding who the wallet belonged to so we could return it, it was discovered that there were multiple fake IDs in the wallet. Three to be exact.”

Farias’ play on rugby club leads to places on National team, trip to Australia’s National Touch League Championships As members of the National Touch Football Team, Melissa Huston and Erika Farias represented Singapore in the Australian National Touch League in Queensland, Australia from March 10-13.  They placed 11th in the Women’s 20’s championship. While playing for a local club team called the Pirates, the two were offered the chance to try out for the Under-20 Opens National Team in October after being scouted in a game. “They are both very committed even with 101 other school activities going on,” Anne Goh, their National Team coach, said. “They’re both very coachable and respect feedback, I love having players with such integrity on the team.” As touch becomes more and more prominent, Huston and Farias will have chances to continue their playing career beyond this year if they wish.

Stepping behind the fog and mirrors: Students gain insight

into the filmmaking process when graduates students from NYU Tisch Asia shoot short film on campus From March 13 - 19, a film crew from New York University Tisch Asia turned the campus into their movie set. The short film tells the tale of a vivacious, popular blonde and a nerdy Asian student who, because of the unwritten laws of high school, cannot be seen together. Yet, they find a way to communicate through their made-up

game, “Skwobble,” the film’s title. The screenplay was written by Jessika Auerbach, mother of senior Olivia Auerbach. Jessika is a graduate student at Tisch Asia’s dramatic writing program. Olivia Auerbach and Jamil Schulze from Canadian International School star as the unlikely duo. Seniors Pierre Cassini and Alvi Hassan, juniors Kelly Schuster and Barbara Hoffer and sophomore Augusta Soeryadjaya played smaller roles.

Amalia Yunus, the film’s producer, said she was impressed by the enthusiasm of students. “The kids are really excited to help out,” Yunus said. “We’re trying to create an environment where it’s not separate between the students and the school. We wanted to get everyone involved as much as possible. I think that’s the aim of the shoot. It’s not something that’s exclusive; it’s a collaboration with the school.”

Not Just Average Students

School life may seem dull at tim es, but involved and diverse students make SAS an ything but an average high school.

Honestly, a day in the life of the average student could be dull. But SAS students were anythin g but average. Sure, they got up at 6.30 a.m. and went to clas s at 8.00 a.m. and cried when Powerschool was under mainte nance, but this year was so much more than just schoolwor k. Whether their polo shirts were orange, green, yellow, or red, students had plenty to make the days interesting. They cheere d on IASAS athletes during pep rallies, and watched spirit activities and break gigs during the day. Whether it was seeing Dominic Wong and the Backstreet Boy s dominate returning champs Joh n Creech and the Boys in SAS Idol, or witnessing ever-creative prom invitations, the days wer e full of new things to talk about. Not only did students get the clas sic American side of events, including Homecoming and Pro m, but because of the incredible diversity at SAS, there were also events like the traditional Chinese lion dance through the cafeteria and school holidays for Hari Raya and Vesak Day. As the school year wound dow n, freshmen grew out of their first year of high school, sophom ores were ready to become upperclassmen, juniors stresse d over SATs, and seniors said goodbye. It’s clear all we actual ly want to do is hang out with our friends all day, which is what stu dent life is truly about anyway . By Tika Marshall

SAS MYTHBUSTERS

What do SAS Students think about common SAS stereotypes? Over the years, SAS has garnered many reputations for itself; some positive, and some negative. The Eagles are internationally known for having extremely competitive academics and sports programs, but with that comes the burden of being stereotyped as arrogant. The archetype for an average SAS student is a cultured, academically-driven, competitive, and overall well-rounded American. But exactly how accurate are these stereotypes about SAS? Here, SAS students have their say on common misconceptions, or truths, about the school.

By: Anjuli Finch

The Social Scene

Like many other high schools, SAS has a reputation for being extremely cliquey. Some students agree that SAS kids can seem isolated and unfriendly, but many completely disagree, saying that students here are more outgoing and friendly then they are given credit for.

“People told me SAS would be a social mire. It can be, but, once you get to know people, SAS becomes a community.” - Senior Ryan Chan

social work Sophomores Ruby Hohensee and Dominique Pratt make working at Food Fest fun. The annual fair was a great opportunity for friends to spend time together at an event for the whole SAS community. Extracurricular activities such as service clubs, sports teams and performing arts were a great way for students to form friendships. Photo By: Kate Mahler

“Before I moved here I heard that SAS was really snobby but I’ve come to find out it really isn’t. I’ve met a lot of nice people since I’ve been here that are completely down to earth.” - Junior Sofia van Tilburg

The Diversity

Although SAS does have a lot of diversity, with over 30 different countries represented by the student body, students still seem to sense a lack of racial interaction among SAS. This contradicts SAS’ reputation of having one of the most cultured student body’s in the world.

“Because SAS is an international school i thought it would be less segregated and much more culturally tolerant than a non international school. Instead everyone is separated by whether they are Korean, Indian, White, etc.”  - Senior Jessie Driesens “SAS is culturally diverse and I love it.” - Senior Heather Morris 16 Student Life & Academics

Moseley, an American and Zakowich, a Singaporean, have been good friends throughout high school. At SAS, many students had friends from all over the world. Photo By Anjuli Finch


The Sports

Among other IASAS schools, SAS is known to dominate the sports field. However, the Eagles are infamous for being overly-proud of their achievements. Are SAS students really as arrogant as other schools think?

“kiss da baby” Blake Peters stands proud at the third season pep rally. Both SAS boys and girls track teams claimed gold at IASAS, marking the second year in a row for girls and the 12th year in a row for boys. Photo By: Jessica Nguyen-Phuong

“At ISB, we thought that SAS was the cockiest of all the schools, they’re full of themselves, and they’re just eagles. I was actually intimidated moving here. Everyone was way more friendly than I had thought though.” - Senior Sara Gaines

“I don’t watch sports that much, but from what I’ve seen and heard from other IASAS participants, SAS seems to put good sportsmanship on the back burner.” - Senior Ben Adickes

The Campus

Since the new High School opened in 2004, SAS students have been privileged with unbeatable sports facilities, advanced technology in classrooms, world-class theaters, and quality food.

“The biggest stereotypes contributes to the idea that SAS is the biggest international school and that is has excellent facilities.” - Senior Nancy Li

“Someone from ISKL once asked me if there was a golf cart that drove around campus that dropped off late students to class.” - Senior Alexis Bell

“My general impression of SAS before attending was that the kids were spoiled because they got to eat in a nice, airconditioned cafeteria.” - Freshman Renata Lumanau

home turf The Auxiliary gym is among SAS’ newest renovations. This new addition provided students with additional space for gym classes as well as more practice locations for athletes. Photo By: Kate Mahler

The Academics

One of the most common stereotypes of SAS is students‘ competitiveness in the classroom. Many outsiders, and even students, believe that most SAS students cram their schedules with APs, teachers are tough, and the workload is intense. However, in an Islander survey, only 11% of upperclassmen said they take 4 or more APs, and as much as 8% of upperclassmen said they don’t take any APs.

“I was told it was really hardcore and sort of cutthroat, and I think it actually is. Everyone here is so smart, and we’re all competing to see who can get A’s.” - Senior Alix Cawthon e = mc2 Energy Science Students are shown how an electric car works by guest speaker Mr. K-W (standing for Mr. Kilowatt). Teachers often tr y to make academics more exciting for students by bringing in interesting props, taking field trips, or inviting in guest speakers.

“I heard that being in SAS would be really easy and slack, but I was wrong. The school here is way more tough than the schools in the states and in the local schools in Singapore.” - Sophomore Nicole Chan Student Life & Academics 17


Ready, Set, Glow Riady Performing Arts Foyer proves successful location for Executive Council sponsored welcome back dance

Neon jewelry, body paint, and bright shirts glowed on dance floor as students arrived to the annual back to school dance, Glow. The event drew students from all grades and sold 280 tickets, more than doubling last year’s 120. The biggest reason for its success was attributed to the new location, the Riady Performing Arts Center, which serves as the foyer between the drama theater and the auditorium. After just opening last year, the Riady Center had never

been used for a dance and student council saw it as an opportunity to try something different. “We wanted to have it somewhere new and interesting to pull more people” executive council secretary, Tika Marshall said. The Riady Center was well received by students, and preferred over the Black Box used in previous years. Senior Non Okumura thought other dances were

unoriginal but liked the way this year’s was set up like a dance floor. The new venue was not the only draw for students. Student council supplied neon glow-in-the-dark paint that students used to decorate their faces, arms and legs. “It was the best part of the dance,” according to sophomore Ruby Hohensee. Regardless of the reasons students came out, most seemed to really enjoy the night. Glow brought a new face to a longstanding tradition.

SAS’ got Spirit

This year, SAS saw an increase in the number of performance-based spirit activities.

Screaming fans, talented singers, and dance moves that would make even Beyonce jealous. No, it wasn’t ‘American Idol’; it was an SAS spirit activity. This year saw an increase in the number of performance-based spirit activities with SAS’ Got Talent, SAS Idol, and the 3rd season pep rally. In both SAS’ Got Talent and SAS Idol, groups of students performed during lunch breaks, competing to win

the votes of spectators. Performances ranged from acoustic solos, to humorous boy-band dances. Student opinion on these spirit activities was split; some enjoyed the funny dances, while others preferred the more serious singers. “I like the funny ones because they get the crowd going, but when you see someone who really has talent, it’s like, wow”, senior Sara Gaines said.

Executive President Lauren Felice said the 3rd season pep-rally was the most successful spirit activity with participants from each class competing against each other, dancing to medleys of songs. “When classes compete against each other, they can bond more within their class, because they are competing against a common enemy.” Felice said.

SAS Bucket List

Things To Do Before Graduating From SAS.

As high school students in Singapore we may not be able to drive, have snowball fights or eat Taco Bell but we have developed our own set of SAS rituals. We asked students to reflect on some of their favorite high school memories and complied an SAS bucket list. These are some experiences that no student should miss out on.

Reality Media vs.

How does SAS compare to what we see on TV?

In “Mean Girls,” Rachel McAdams’ character, Regina George, and the “Plastics” abuse their roles as high school queen bees, and bully their classmates, going as far as creating a burn book criticizing their peers based on appearance, petty rumors, and sexuality. On the popular TV show “Gossip Girl,” money is wildly thrown around by teens who party every night and practically live in hotels, unsupervised by their wealthy and equally irresponsible parents who assume absent roles in their children’s lives. On “90210” it seems every high school student has stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine. Portrayal of high school life in TV shows and movies gave a warped image of what most students would consider to be a normal high school experience. While these media sources depict characteristics of student life accurately, stories are often exaggerated to fit the Hollywood standard, including such things as overly-talented leads, ultra-dramatic family issues, and, of course, excessive PDA. Students at SAS often complained that their lives weren’t as easy or glamorous as those of teenagers in their favorite TV shows and movies, though many understood that the fantasy created was unattainable. “There are so many hot

guys [on TV shows], and you look at this school and you are like ‘Where are they?’” junior Seira Wade said. In productions like “The OC” and “High School Musical,” despite a lack of attention to the academic side of school, students end up in ivy league schools. However, not every occurrence on TV shows is so enviable. Real-life SAS students were not constantly dealing with major upheavals such as death, pregnancy or illegitimate family members. Extreme situations as these are what most students considered to be most unappealing about the otherwise perfect lives of on-screen teenagers. Students were grateful that the bullying portrayed in the media was not as serious or violent in real life. Sophomore Will Pazos was pleasantly surprised that there was no hazing his freshman year, like being “stuffed in trashcans.” Behind every exaggerated depiction, though, there seems to be some truth. Senior Chris Kuan sees these similarities as a result of “people [trying] to imitate what they see in TV shows.” Most students, for instance, found cliques and drama to be a strong presence at SAS, which begs the question: Do movies create these standards in reflection of real high

TV Time Seniors John Creech, Brett Rothberg, and Ben Scieszka catch up on an episode of Gossip Girl during their free period.

school life, or do they create a lifestyle that students aim to reflect? Just as “Mean Girls’” Janis Ian, played by Lizzy Caplan, explains the social caste system of her school in an explanation by cafeteria seating, “you can draw a map” of the SAS cafeteria, senior Kerry McFetridge said, “and everyone would understand.” Not only are cliques a recurring topic of discussion, but gossip and drama also assume a prominent role in student life. Wade found that “everyone is overdramatic here”, exaggerating stories to bring novelty to a banal incident, thus “changing the story as it goes along.” Although SAS students religiously watch high school TV shows, a majority seemed glad not to see these stories and events mirrored in real life. Most concluded that while the glitz and glamour of media portrayals might be enviable, the drawbacks of our favorite shows greatly outweighed the benefits. Despite this mature acceptance, however, a number of seniors still admitted to having high expectations of college life and the future, based on what they’ve seen in movies and television. Beware, though, seniors. Unlike Elle Woods, a video of you in a bikini will probably not land you a spot at Harvard Law School.

Though the new attractions drew more tourism, some students are not sure how beneficial the changes will be in the long run, “the shopping malls are all the same...[the changes] don’t make it any better and there’s too many people here,” said Senior Yasmin Venema. But others see the benefit of Singapore’s new face, “It used to be more simple living here, but there are more malls and so many skyscrapers now. There’s a lot more to do,” said Senior Melissa Huston.

between $17.5 and $18.5 billion. Their confidence seemed fitting after the response from the opening of Singapore’s first casinos and the Universal Studios theme park. During the Chinese New Year holiday, visitor arrivals reached a record high 857,000, 24.2% higher than February 2009. The new attractions seem particularly appealing to visitors from nearby Asian countries. Visitors from Indonesia increased by 39% [144,000] from February 2009, while visitors from Malaysia increased by 50% [69,000] and those from China by a hefty 79.9% [143,000]. “Asians do have a bit of a gambling streak in them,” said National Association of Travel Agents Singapore President Robert Khoo. The island state was just getting started. Other developments were well underway: the International Cruise Terminal, Gardens by the Bay, National Art Gallery, River Safari, Youth Olympics, Changi Motorsports

In four years of high school, seniors saw the opening of Vivo City, the Singapore Flyer, Ion, Resort World Casino and Universal Studios. Though Singapore has always been popular as a short stopover destination, these changes have transformed into its own top tourist location. In January 2005, Singapore announced its plan to triple its tourism receipts, double its visitor arrivals and create 100,000 new jobs in the tourist industry, all by the year 2015. Tourism receipts for 2004 totaled $9.8 billion and the following years saw that number increase, reaching $15.2 billion by 2008. Singapore suffered the worst of the economic downturn in 2009 and the decline in travel saw earnings drop to $12.4 billion – the same as in 2006. The global recession didn’t seem to worry the Singapore Tourism Board, who predicted that tourism receipts from 2010 would reach

In recent years, Singapore has developed into one of Asia’s busiest tourist destinations. Taller buildings, busier streets and rising tourism receipts are all a part of Singapore’s new face.

As students ascended the stairs of the Conrad hotel, they were greeted by the flash of cameras, video cameras, and a rolled out red carpet. Incorporating the theme of a Red Carpet Affair, the junior council created a prom resembling a night with all the fame and glamour of Hollywood. For junior president Alex Amstrup, the planning process started before the school year even began. He first started looking for prom venues in August of 2009, and then when the entire junior council was elected, they confirmed the Conrad hotel for the event. The next step was brainstorming

for and choosing a prom theme. In this process, members of the junior class could throw out their own ideas by submitting them in a suggestion box. The junior council filtered through them, that hoping they could use some, or that the suggested ideas would inspire them to think of others. Amstrup said some of the crazies themes they received were pirates versus ninjas, the price is right, and kim chi mud wrestling. The total cost of prom was about $40,000, the majority of the junior class’ budget. The most of this money went towards paying for the function room at the Conrad, and the rest

was for decorations, prom gifts, the photographer, the D.J., and food and beverages. One of the features of prom included a video camera set up right outside the function room, which filmed students arriving at prom. The live stream video was then projected on a screen inside the actual room, so students could see what was going on outside. Two separate photo booths were also set up; one projected the pictures onto the other screen in the room, and the other immediately printed and framed the pictures for students to keep as a souvenir.

Welcome to Beautiful

TIOMAN! Standing at the edge of the boat, senior Senior Cecilia Gregg peered into the clear ocean, and saw waters teeming with colorful fish and coral. But what caught her eye were the dozens of ominous, stinging jellyfish, drifting freely with the current. Gathering all of her courage, Cecilia adjusted her snorkel, drew in a deep breath, and took the plunge. This year, AP Environmental Science teacher Martha Began and her two APES classes, were the pioneers for the five day, 4-night field trip to the biologically rich island of Tioman, Malaysia. Students left school mid-day on Wednesday, and boarded the bus for a five hour drive to the Mersing Ferry Terminal in Malaysia. But the trip was not all smooth sailing; there

were a few bumps along the way. One student forgot her passport and had to take a separate taxi ride up to the ferry terminal. Once everyone was safely at the ferry terminal, an hourlong ferry ride took the students to the remote volcanic island of Tioman, accessible only by ferry, with no air con, TV or even cars. “There was never a dull moment on the trip, and all our activities were so educational and interesting” said senior Suzanne Shaffer. Activities included digging holes on the beach of a turtle hatchery, snorkeling in the ocean and mangroves, and hiking through primary and secondary forest. In addition, students also had lectures for at least three hours a day, given by the resort’s experienced guides.

“The schedule for the students on this trip has been the busiest of any other group, and we’ve been so impressed by the student’s constant enthusiasm and energy throughout the entire trip” said tour guide Samantha Craven. Even though the schedule left minimal space for free time, many students, including senior James Fan, liked it this way. “If I could, I wouldn’t change anything about the schedule. We always had something to do, and if we were given more free time, I wouldn’t have known what to do with it.”

After the APES trip to Tioman, senior Sara Gaines took initiative in helping out with the endangered turtles species living in Melina Beach, Tioman. “While we were at Tioman, we were really moved by the

struggles these turtles face, and what little is done to help them” said Gaines. The APES students joined forces with SAVE Club to provide funding and materials for creating a tie-dye t-shirt booth at the Asia Bowl game. In total, the tie-dye for turtle team made over $500 during Asia Bowl, all of which went to the Melina Beach Turtle Hatchery.

Technology

SAS

Formspring.me & ning take over SAS. New sites make technology even more dominant in students’ lives, both socially and academically. “Will be taking questions in 15 minutes formspring.me/ roflcopter” As students logged onto their Facebook accounts in the evening during the fourth quarter and took a look at their home feeds, statuses like this one with links to their Formsprings were common. In addition to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, Formspring exploded this year as it gave anyone the ability to create a page to receive anonymous questions and give their answers in a public forum. One of the first users of the site, Ted Chritton, said he started joined Formspring to entertain himself as well as others. “I used it to procrastinate,” Chritton said. “And it was funny, all of my close friends would go on it asking me the most random questions, like which Power Ranger I would most want to be, and apparently, they found my answers funny too.” But, as students caught on to the hype and started creating

their own pages, things quickly got out of hand. Something that started off as a fun and interesting forum with witty replies to random questions turned into the perfect medium for cyber bullying. Several accounts with anonymous owners were created solely for the purpose of gossiping about students in the high school. The situation was diffused somewhat as other students left comments publicly urging the abuse to stop, and the administration called a discussion in every class about cyber bullying. Academically, blogging sites were used in a number of classes, from AP Literature to History of China, as a way for teachers to post discussions and threads for students to answer at home. The site, or the Ning, as it came to be called, was another forum-site that let students post assignments online and respond to their classmates’ posts. External links, images, videos, even instant messaging with other users in the class group

were other features on the Ning. “It’s convenient that we can just post things and not have to print out small writing assignments,” junior Taylor Baildon said. “But other people can read what you write so a lot of people just paraphrase what they see on other posts and get by without much effort.” Though it proved to be a good medium for continuing class discussions when the 84-minute blocks just weren’t enough, some found it a hassle to keep up with everyone else’s comments and having to write out arguments instead of having oral, face-toface discussions. Nonetheless, the site’s plans to go pay-only will force teachers to rethink their lesson plans for next year. “I think the push of technology is good for some classes,” Baildon said. “But it shouldn’t be forced in every class, because some classes like math classes don’t use computers often and are doing fine.”

Asian vs. White Parents

Though there are many stereotypes on Asian and Western parenting, surveys reveal that race doesn’t play as big a role in family values as students think. Asians hung out in the library. White kids had no responsibilities or academic ambitions. Asians locked themselves in their room and studied during the weekends. White kids go crazy clubbing three times a week. Regardless of how openminded we claim to be, we all have certain notions in our head about how different cultures behave. We believe that people from different backgrounds behave a certain way, but we were quick to form misinformed opinions. In a survey conducted by the Islander, 315 students talked about their parents and their parents’ expectations. Surprisingly, both Asian and Western parents have similar outlooks on how their children should act on their academics and social life.  One explanation for this finding is that we all attended an international school where our parents constantly interacted with each other. This exposure allows them to learn expectations for different cultures, which eventually leads to a similar treatment for people from both Western and Asian countries. “Although both my parents are white, because we’ve lived in Asia for so long, they treat grades with more severity…like Asian parents,” senior Paige Hicks said. Take grades for example. There’s a common misconception that Asian parents are a lot stricter than their

western counterparts, and that they set unreasonable goals for their children to achieve. But, based on the survey both types of parents have similar expectations for their kids. Asians think an A- is a bad grade - 52 percent of them, while 51 percent of western parents think that a B is a bad grade. Shockingly, the division of “bad grades” are basically equal to each other for both backgrounds. Even the punishments for

“We all have certain notions in our head about how different cultures behave” academic failure – however failure might be described in a household – don’t seem to differentiate according to a family’s country of origin. Punishments vary from “being lectured,” to having your parents get “disappointed,” to having electronics taken away. It’s beneficial to both cultures that their parents have learned from each other. Junior Jennie Park said that she was “lucky that [her] parents aren’t orthodox Koreans…[who] pull out the wooden spoon or make me memorize 100 SAT vocab words”. Even when it comes to social life, both types of parents tend to have similar rules for behaviors.

The surveyed students said they did not have specific curfews but had to tell their parents where they are at, and what time they will be home. Westerns kids aren’t allowed to run amok, just the same way that Asian kids aren’t locked up in their room on weekends. As long as parents know their child’s whereabouts, they have a freedom to do as they please. As parents behaviors were similar, so were those of their children. They tell their parents where they are, but a lot of them omit certain details that might get them into trouble. And when they are about to get caught for breaking curfew, the excuses tend to be the same. There’s the ever popular “I couldn’t get a taxi”, to blaming it on traffic jams and red lights, to putting the blame on a friend who is having a little out of it. Whatever the excuse, most of the time they tend to work on all types of parents. So, despite the stereotypes, the survey has shown that in our shared days and experiences, we also share similar solutions and behaviors. Our misjudgments come from segregating ourselves and sometimes not having that much contact with other groups, because at the end of the day, our activities and academic responsibilities tend to be the same.

We tossed aside those plastic trophies and starting winning cold hard IASAS medals. Although only a few of us became elite and went to IASAS, a larger number of us held their own thro ughout the JV teams. No longer do we dance to Kidz Bop; MJ is our god. Traveling is no longer defined by traveling across tow n to UWC. Jakarta and Manila are just a few of the places we frosh got to see. Being in high school was not the only new thin g for us this year. The 2nd Twilight movie came out! :) In all seriousness Not only that, new friends came and some faded away. But no matter what, we ‘let the good times roll’. Freshmen we are the Frosh and the new kids on the block. Round one down, three to go. If this year was this much fun, think ahead. If you missed that dance with that special someone, Missed your chance to speak out, Didn’t have the courage to try out for a spot, have no worries. There’s always next year. By: Sachith Siriwardane

Today I was eating cereal for breakfast when suddenly I came upon a piece that was particularly hard and stringy. When I took it out of my mouth, I discovered it was the leg of a cockroach. I don’t know where the rest of its body is. FML.

Today, I had to climb all the way up to the fourth floor to get something from my locker carrying a heavy book bag to get something only to realize that it was in my bag the whole entire time... FML. Today, my friends and I were hungry but couldn’t find a McDonalds anywhere. We were really hungry so thats where we wanted to go. After giving up, one of my friends settled for some donuts from a nearby bakery shop. As we were leaving and tuned the corner, there was a huge McDonalds right in front of us. FML. Breaking my leg on my first interim. FML Today, I woke up at 6, the time when I normally wake up, and got ready for school. Then I realized it was a late start day and I could have slept for 2 more hours. FML.

Today, I was changing out of my costume in the auditorium during dance practice. I was wearing a leotard and while taking off my pants to change them, a potential new family to SAS walks into the auditorium on a tour of the school right as I am putting on my pants on the front of the stage. Guess they won’t be joining SAS anytime soon. FML

The Healthier Choice

The class of 2013 pilots the first Freshman Health and Wellness health class Rewind to March 2009. Though some of your memories may not stretch back that far, March 2009 was when we were handed our first Program Planning Guides from the High School. When you finally decided what classes you wanted to take during your Freshmen Year; you may have forgotten that three classes were mandatory during the 9th Grade. English 9, Western Civilization, and Freshmen Health and Wellness. So, you re-picked. Freshmen year came along and kicked off for us in Fall 2009. High School was a tremendous change for us all. Try recalling your first Health and Wellness class of the year. When

you first saw the syllabus, what were your thoughts? Did they sound something like, “Didn’t we already learn this?” Or did it sound more like, “This is a recap of health from every year since 7th Grade,” Whatever it may be, this year’s Health class was to give us an in-depth explanation and help us become better prepared to face whatever challenges life may propose. The topics covered were Self Advocacy and Choices, Physical Activity and Nutrition, Alcohol and Tobacco, Substance Use and Abuse, Relationships and Sexuality, and Stress and Disorders. No, this won’t help us in business and financing; but it will help with our social lives.

shake it baby! As the year closes, Zach Ang, Ryan Ong, Sachith Siriwardane, Kevin Tung, and Chris Couch dance the night away. Photo By: Tarush Sinha

Moreover, the class is so designed as to help us better than the Specialized Health Courses that help with one aspect of everything that Freshmen Health has to offer. Even though we may have apparently ‘wasted an elective choice’ this year by opting for this, it really saved us from taking individually specialized Health Classes. So, regardless of how you see it, Health class was truly for the better. A clear example of how worthy the class is, it is staying on next year while Western Civilization is being shown the door and being replaced by World History for the future Freshmen.

Is The First Free A Charm?

During the 2009-2010 school year, the first semester contained a new addition to the Freshman Free Periods.

Fall 2009, Freshmen year started. We had new classes, new friends, new teachers, and a free period. In the opinion of about 88 % of the Freshmen, having a free period on the days we didn’t have seminar, was the best part of the year. Upon further investigations, you would find that the reason the free was so popular was because you could pretty much do anything. Sit in the cafeteria and eat, walk around school with friends, watch TV shows and movies online, play DOTA, and of course, do your homework. At the start of the year, most of us were very conscious of the fact that free period is for working ahead

40 Freshmen

and finishing projects. However as time passed on and stress levels increased, free period became a breather period for us where we would be able to relax and have fun. Though it seemed okay, we were actually making our lives harder. In the end of September, the freshmen counselors called the first Freshmen Seminar of the year. None of us really expected this and so we walked in completely clueless as to what was going to happen. After the first session during which we were taught Facebook etiquette with Alice (Youtube Video) and how to effectively use a free period, almost all of us despised it. But truth be told,

it wasn’t as bad as it seemed. After the first few seminars, Freshmen started effectively using their free periods with methods they learnt in the seminar. The seminars were thus both, effective and slightly entertaining. Some Freshmen however, believe that there are different ways through which we can learn all that we were taught during seminar. Though the seminar was quite effective, you can still find a small group of people playing DOTA or watching movies during their free period. By: Tarush Sinha

What would you do if: The world ended tomorrow and you had a billion dollars? Find a cure or solution to whatever was killing me. And if I did have all the money I wanted, it would devaluate currency worldwide so I don’t think that’s a very wise idea. Just printing money is what got Germany into the financial hole before WWI.

Blow up something...

First, my friends and I would go to Japan and learn how to become ninja, then visit the hot springs in Hokkaido and gorge on enormous amounts of sushi. I’d then order a private jet to fly all my friends and I to go to the French Riveria to eat yummy pasta and baguettes and hang out by the beach. We’d also travel all around the world and secretly trash celebrity houses because we are all ninjas. Then I’d call Kanye West to interrupt the end of the world.

We’re Moving Up

The half way line has been drawn , the two year stretch begins. Were almost there Class of 2012.

Sophomore hands tremb led less than freshmens’. The ground under our fee t still shifted, but we were calmer. Past the earth shatteri ng transition into high sc ho ol, we had a better perspective of what was going on an d what was expected. There was more freedom to choose classes and extracurricular activities, but that also meant we had more responsibility as we ll. APs and SATs loom fol lowed by mocks and prep class es. Staying up past midn ight became a habit, and after school naps grew as frequ ent as eating. Backpack loads were heavier, and we fel t ou r stress levels move close r to a breaking point. To deal with the pressure s of high school though, we made new friends. Th e Subway aunties memo rized our orders, we finally did n’t have to wear that tac ky orange anymore, Fridays were sp ent chucking dodge balls at one another, and who could forget our very own Bo Ha mby flaunting his curves as Sa ndra Dee during the third season pep rally? We have begun to mold ou rse lve s and make a mark in school, and alrea dy halfway through high school, we did not have a lot of tim e left. We have survived the big earthquake into high scho ol and now, we are ready for our next challenge: overtaking the seniors in spirit point s. And that, future upperclas smen, is a challenge we can surely overcome. By Anibita Siregar

While upperclassmen debated whether or not sophomore year was the “slacker” year, time to take a breath and relax, sophomores buckled down and worked.

Sophomores Take An

EARLY LEAD

Sophomores show off class pride by cheering loud and wearing there green. Pep rallies make for some of the most memorable moments in American high schools. They are full of traditions and noise, creating an atmosphere that SAS has tried to imitate over several years. Modifications to the program by Executive Council did the job this year. More students wore class polos and dressed in red and blue for IASAS events. More students have joined in the noise-making, dancing and stomping during spirit rallies. As the competition heated up freshmen became “outraged” by sophomore wins in spirit competitions

58 Sophomores

and planned ways of overcoming sophomores and snatching first place. Sophomore wins in early spirit activities faded as they began to give up points. Past school years seemed to always end with senior victories leaving underclassmen to question the idea of rigged or fixed scores. A new tool, the Cheer-O-Meter was introduced this year to measure class noise levels in rallies more accurately. More precise measures still put the sophomores far behind and students asked why. “Sophomores have lost their faith

in winning,” said sophomore Lucy Pickering But class president Bo Hamby was hopeful as the year drew to a close. “The sophomores can still pull through. If we give it our all, we can still win!” Following a great showing at the third season pep rally, the sophomores finished the year strongly. Led by president Hamby, they choreographed a hilarious dance to a mash-up of songs from Grease. Favored to win the contest, sophomores finished the overall competition clinching second place for the grade.

“Ask questions if you don’t know the answers. No one likes to look stupid. You won’t learn until you ask. This is especially smart if you don’t understand the homework. Not only does this apply to homework, also dont be affraid to ask upperclassmen questions.” - Missa Stratton

{“Ask questions”} “Sophomore year is not as troublesome as many people say. If you didn’t have good study routines in your first year of High School, it turns into a bad habit. You must learn some basic rules and try to stick with them for the next two years of high school!” - Nicole Ongko

{“Just Relax”} “Don’t wear so much make-up! it’s funny when I see girls trying so hard with a full face of makeup and curling their hair for school. I know you want to make a good impression, but it looks better if you just wear minimal makeup.” - Hannah Hunt

txt

e l b a t t e Regr

Have you ever sent a text and regretted it?

“Oh God, I cant believe I just sent that text message to him!” your best friend mumbles to you on the bus. You look around to make sure he isn’t on the after-school bus. The embarrassment of saying “ I Love You” to a guy she barley even knew was all over her face. All right, it has now been proven that it is not the smartest idea to save fake messages on your cell phone. The result is ultimate humiliation! Have you every wished that you could go back in time and stop yourself from

sending a text message? For teenagers stressed with homework and extracurricular activities; sleep was not one of the priorities. Sometimes emotions tended to get a little out of hand and chaotic when were sleep deprived, which is just part of being a teenager. This is why we advise you not to text whilst on an emotional rampage! Text messages are permanent, once there sent; there is no going back.

Congratulations, We Survived ... and to those who second guess ed our abilities to pass APs and SATs and exams... HA .

How can we ever forget the chil ling memories of all-nighters, excessive amount of caffeine and mornin gs when we would trade anythin g for an extra minute of sleep? And we have “the numbers.” Som ehow they seem to be everyw here. The beautiful 5s, the ugly 2s, and oh – the perfect combination of inte gers: 4.0 and 2200. Never again in our lives will we freak out about a decimal point so much – 3.99 and 4.0 are com pletely different. Then we had our prom. It mig ht have been a first for some, but this is the first prom where each and eve ry one of us could rightfully call MY prom. This year, we managed to see the sweeter and softer sides of the junior male population – a side so rare that we probably won’t see mo re than twice in our whole high school career. Who would ever expect that jester from across the table to offer a dozen of roses; or that shy boy from interim to sing a song that’s about you ; or a close guy friend to dress up as “your hero”? All of them had one que stion: Will you go to prom with me ? And all of them, with knots in their sto mach, pride aside, praying you ’ll say – YES. We might not be the most spir ited class, trailing behind the eve r-so-loud sophomores during spirit activiti es and cheers, but we are the big, the bold and the beautiful class of 2011. Even Beyonce would hav e been impressed by the smooth twis ts of hips during the oh-so-sex y single “men” dance. As juniors, we mastered the art of procrastination. We don’t just leave that research paper document blank until the day before, we leave it blank until midnight – that’s whe n the party begins. That’s whe n you start hyperventilating, and an occasio nal tear might roll down your che eks. But the sight of the long list of gre en check marks on Skype com forts you; you know you’re not going to be alone in this long, dark night. The n you run into your fellow owl-mates the next morning, laughing unc ontrollably. Partly it’s because you’ve reache d a point of tiredness where eve rything’s just hilarious; partly because whe n you see zombies wandering around the halls, you know you look like one too. Now, we’re all glad that it’s ove r. Juniors, we are finally seniors . That means we can walk around sch ool with an air of superiority, and finally – we get to wear red: the color of power. Before you can step off the bus in August, savor the last mome nts of immaturity, the last moments whe n you can still flip through cha nnel 32 and 33, deciding whether to wat ch Aladdin or SpongeBob Squ arepants. Congratulations. We are survivo rs.

go class of 2011 The juniors prove they have the most spirit by shaking pom poms and screaming for victory. At the beginning of the year the juniors lacked spirit, but by the end no one was shy to cheer. Juniors would not let the underclassmen beat them with spirit points.

+ SKYPING FOR AN A Skype study sessions may not be the most productive when one takes to account how off-topic conference calls can get. However, productive calls are possible. Ultimately, it’s the student’s job to find the balance between skyping to study and skyping to plan the weekend. With “two minds are greater than one” in thought, you and your friends log on to Skype with intentions to study for that unit test everyone’s been stressing about. However, how true are those words of wisdom when you quickly find the conference call spiraling wildly out of control. “FML. I’m so screwed for this test!” your friend complains. Within minutes the conversation wanders off into talk about Studyworks vs. Test Takers, when we’re going to find that special someone, what we’re aspiring to be, gossip, and plans for the weekend. Skype calls became a new genre of collaborative studying, but its productivity was arguable. Some students said these sessions cleared up many questions while others said they inevitably ended up in aimless conversation.

76 Juniors

Juniors leaned towards the idea that the efficiency of Skype calls depended wholly on the individual’s studiousness. “It [the productivity of Skype] depends on who you’re talking to and if you know you can stay on track with them or not,” junior Hannah L’Heureux said. Some others were already aware that studying with buddies inescapably lead to laughter and jokes. Junior Joun Lee was no stranger to sleeping at wee hours of the night due to too many failed Skype study sessions. “Skype and AP Bio are not compatible. Yet, we keep making the mistake of doing it anyway,” Lee commented. There were also students who did not have a penchant for collaborative studying. “I’m a lone wolf when it comes to studying,” junior Nicholai

DiBiagio said. Skype study sessions were encouraged by peers if students knew they were capable of staying on task. After all, what you get out of it is how much you put into it. Though Skype was the riskier choice of studying, if you and your friends were able to keep on track for a necessary period of time until everyone gained a better understanding of the test material, then the phrase “two minds are greater than one” held true. An insightful conversation with friends could always help lessen anxieties because it showed you that you were not the only one anxious of the independent life soon to be faced. These talks, however, did not lessen your anxieties on the test you’d take the next day when the school bell rang at 8:05 am.

A Year Full of ‘Lasts’

As we write the final pages of ou r twelve-year journey, we reflect on the end of a remark able era and look forward to a fresh new beginnin g.

Graduation has been a long tim e coming. Our Pokémon cards are battere d, and our Furbies are hidden in the deepest, darkest corners of our closets.  Most of us are ove r the Backstreet Boys, but for a few of us, they’ll always be “ou r fire.” Barney’s drug addiction has turned us into cynics, but secretly we still believe Pluto is a planet. We are the class of 201 0.  Somehow, we survived puberty . That zit in the middle of your forehead didn’t kill you, and tha t time your voice cracked in fron t of the class, you didn’t quite die of shame. Every photo on Myspace and Xanga was taken from the same angle, and when you talked to your friends, u rote lyk dis.  As June 3 looms, we realize we’ ve grown up. Now, we use Facebook, not Myspace, and boys want to collect numbers, not cards. Our senior year has bee n filled with so many lessons. We learned persistence while pressing ‘x’ and ‘z’ to ‘chase our dreams’, and patience while wai ting for our senior sweatshirts. We’ve been through break-ups and break-downs, becoming stronger because of them. We brought ‘sexy back,’ and we painted the school red at pep rallies. We, as a class, have tak en this year and made it our own .  It’s been a year full of ‘lasts’ – the last AP exam, the last inte rim trip, the last day of white polos and navy blue bottoms. It’s sad , but remember years to come will be full of ‘firsts’ – the first day of college, the first new friend you make, the first load of lau ndry you do yourself. Each of you is more than ready for the ‘real world. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.   Good luck, Class of 2010. Kee p in touch! By: Aising Leow

COLLEGE APPLICATION THE

For Undergraduate College Admission The moment you stepped foot into the hallways of high school, everything you did for college. All the sleep you sacrificed for nights of studying, all the days you gave up for SAT prep – it was all for your future. Despite common misconceptions, a 4.3 GPA and 2350 SAT score were not golden tickets into Ivy League schools. Colleges didn’t want robots with just perfect grades and scores; they wanted us to have character and diversity. The most competitive schools accepted less than 10 percent of their applicant pool. This year, SAS students applied

to colleges all over the world. No matter where they applied, most seniors felt that the process was a stressful life-or-death situation with their futures hanging on a few test scores, a 2000-word paper, and maybe a meet-and-greet session. Some students who applied to their limit of ten colleges had to complete ten different forms, all with different essay questions. With all the requirements needed to fulfill the application, college admissions should have been a class all of its own. On Dec. 31, the night most

applications were due, more than a handful of seniors rushed to finish and polish their work on the Common Application website. But the process didn’t stop there. The worst part was next: waiting. Students wandered to their emails or Family Connection pages constantly between January and April, impatient to receive any news from schools. When decisions trickled in during the first week of April, most were content with the letters they received. So juniors, remember that one math test you failed freshman year? Stop worrying, it’s not worth it.

Early Graduation Marvella Luhur Marvella Luhur’s parents encouraged her to think about graduating. “They were right” Luther said. “If I can better myself by graduating early and studying something I find useful, why not?” Marvella Luhur spent the months following the early graduation ceremony studying Mandarin.

Tia Iwan Tia Iwan graduated early, with similar reasons as Marvella and Aki- to presue a language. But instead of studying Mandarin, Tia chose to head to Japan and learn Japanese. She’s been accepted to college in the states, where she says she’ll continue studying Japanese.

Aki Maedomari Aki Maedomari saw no point in staying in school if she could graduate early. “My parents were okay with the idea because they thought I could stay [in Singapore]” Aki is among three of the four graduates who chose to study a language for the remainder of the school year.

Cory Robinson Cory Robinson’s family was the reason for his decision to graduate early. “My family decided it would be best to move back to the States, but because I’m a senior, the only way I can graduate is to do it here.” So Cory finished his credits early so that he could graduate and leave with his family.

At 3:05 on the afternoon of Monday, April 26th, despite the characteristic warm and humid weather of the monsoon season, a group of almost 100 seniors flocked to H301 to change out of their school uniforms into capes, cowboy hats, sombreros, prom suits, Hawaiian skirts, tutus and oversized sunglasses. What were they doing? Senior Lip Dub 2010. “We wanted to make the best senior video ever,” student producer Kathryn Tinker said. “After the last pep rally, we saw how musical everyone was, and how much people get into singing and dancing in front of the whole school, and that made us believe in it a lot more.” Tinker worked with fellow senior Melissa Huston to plan and organize the entire video in just two weeks. Yearbook advisor Tate Sonnack helped film, carrying the Steadicam across campus. The entire video was filmed in a single shot that started down by the high school steps, trailed to the atrium and through the first floor cafeteria, then on to the track for the final scene. After a few hours of rehearsing and just three takes, the shooting was complete. The lip dub was done to the cover of “Don’t Stop Believin’” by the cast of Glee, and will premier at graduation. “The main thing that I took away from lip dub was that I learned how energetic and how unified everyone in our grade is,” Tinker said. “I truly believe this is something that will make our class legendary at SAS.”

Senior Advice The 2010 graduating class impart their words of wisdom to next year’s senior class. Don’t slack off too much your second semester. Despite popular belief, a C in math can get you rescinded from Columbia. Keep your priorities straight. Facebook stalking is more important than doing homework. The silent reading room is a good place to study...or take an after-lunch nap. “Take an awesome senior trip with your friends for spring break.” -Courtesy of the 2010 Bali-goers College applications should never keep you home on a Saturday night. Intimidate the underclassmen every chance you get. Their time to rule the school will come when you’re gone. If it’s past 10:30 and you haven’t started your homework, you probably never will. Just give up and go to bed. “Don’t be in a hurry to finish senior year because it may be the greatest year of your young life thus far.” -Courtesy of Danielle Courtenay

Alumni Advice SAS Class of 2009 Alumni Sajan Shah and Adrian Bautista share their insight to this year’s graduating class on life after high school. Buy an unlimited supply of PE shorts. Just because there is no Azizah to mark your attendance doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to class. Don’t be surprised if people ask, “Do you speak Singaporean?” Don’t be worried if you don’t know your major, taking Introduction to Thai Massages is a great way to spend your parent’s tuition money. “Freshman forgiveness” does not apply to the freshman fifteen. Beware of the fifteen. Set your parents up with a Skype account, SingTel phone cards are a rip off. Ho food has a completely different meaning outside of SAS. Find one or two organizations you feel passionately about; though it may be a resume booster, Hillel isn’t looking for non-Jewish member.

Naming everyone who has contributed during my time at SAS in only 250 characters is impossible. So, in typical second-semester senior style, I won’t even try. Thanks Mama, Papa, Maayan, and everyone else who has made the last four years truly great

Clubbing at SAS

With a wide breadth of clubs, ran ging from Magic Club, to football, to Project Sowe to, SAS had no shortage of extracurricular oppo rtunities.

When the bell rang at 3:05pm , the day was hardly over for the average student. It was a testam ent to the breadth of our extracurricular program that studen ts not headed toward the yellow buses dispersed in a dozen diff erent directions—lacing up clea ts, rolling out film equipment and tuning violins. Whether you wer ea budding entrepreneur, dancer extraordinaire, the ultimate mathlete, or a bit of everything , there was bound to be an organization for you. It was just one of the perks of going to a high school of 1,300. Yet sometimes there seemed to be too much to do in too little time. Take service: should you be Caring for Cambodia, Wish[in g] for Kids, or Aiding China? With over 40 service clubs at SAS, it could be hard to make the cho ice. It was tough enough trying to keep up with ever-growing mo untains of homework while kee ping an eye on Facebook. Try add ing an activity, or two, or twenty. Like most other aspects of sch ool, after all, extracurriculars wer e a balancing act. Those who aim ed to save the environment, fee d the hungry, and visit three eld erly homes a week would be qui ckly stretched too thin, while those who only pursued the interests they found most com pelling often found themselves more rewarded. Ultimately, clubs added dimens ion to students’ lives. They gave us a chance to get to know our peers outside of the classroom - on the track, in the art studio, or in the theatre. The y gave us a chance to associate our peers beyond being “that kid in my math class”--a chance to see them as musicians, debate rs and leaders as well. With the number of clubs, sports teams , and organizations available, we trul y had the best of both worlds: a huge school with endless nich es to explore. Story by Akane Otani

Sports Clubs

Students of all skill levels and experience take advantage of club opportunities to get involved in sports not offered at the varsity level.

FLOOR HOCKEY

True to casual club form, Floor Hockey Club aimed to create a place for hockeyloving students to relax in a non-competitive environment and play their favorite sport. With open membership, the club saw up to 25 students at each of their weekly play-days, all with different experiences and skill levels. A student-created club, Floor Hockey was a chance for students to get in shape while playing the game with other students free of varsity sport pressures or commitments. Blurb by: Sarah Moseley

Ultimate Frisbee

Every week, twice a week, in the heat of the sun, a group of highly devoted SAS students could always be found on the turf field, tossing a frisbee with smiles on their faces. This group was the Ultimate Frisbee Club, an organization of students who got together with no other purpose than to unwind while playing a sport they love. Sponsored by teacher and alumnus Edwin Bywater, the group sometimes played organized ultimate, other times just throwing around the frisbee, trying out new tricks and skills in the process. Blurb by: Sarah Moseley

Reaching a wide audience, Boxing Club attracted students of many interests, from those looking to improve personal fitness, to those looking to expand their athletic horizons and to those looking to learn some defense techniques. This year-old club began as a weekly trip to Turf City, where the necessary equipment could be found and non-faculty trainers could give pointers. Thanks to brand new, on-campus equipment, as well as guest instructors, including Michelle Thavasi and Muhamad Ridhwan, though, club members this year were able practice the sport a little closer to home.

was the largest of all honor societies in the high school. Members were chosen from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes through a selective process based on applicants’ academics, character, leadership and service. NHS supports a charity in Cambodia called “Hearts and Hands.” Throughout the year, members raised money, selling review books, holding bake sales and participating in school fairs. All proceeds went toward financing the education of Cambodian students and funding the lunch program at a day-care centre. NHS also sponsors the annual SAS “Teacher Appreciation Day,” in which teachers are presented with compliments and thoughtful comments from students. Blurb by: Aisling Leow

National Dance Association

The newest honor society at SAS, National Dance Association inducted its first 16 members on this January, although an impromptu lunch induction for Marvella Luher was hosted before she graduated in December. Their main focus as a new society this year was to help out with the middle school dance club. In each of the dance inductees’ essays, they included a quote that they felt summed up their attitude toward dance, one was which was George Balanchine’s “I don’t want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance.” Balanchine would have liked the NDA kids who when they weren’t in studios could be seen dancing down the halls or doing jigs in class. “Dance is our art, our sport, and our life.” Blurb by: Katie Lindholm

HONOR SOCIETIES

In SAS’s competitive atmosphere, many students focused their attention on a couple of subjects. These were students who excelled in what they did, and it won them membership in these societies.

National ART Honor Society

National Art Honor Society members were those who have demonstrated a strong passion for the arts, and were willing to dedicate themselves to the SAS art community, not only to create art for their portfolios but to give something back. They raised funds during County Fair by drawing caricatures of fairgoers, and later teamed up with Caring For Cambodia to take part in an off-campus exhibition. Each student contributed a work of art to the exhibit, some auctioning their work to raise money for the service club. Through experiences such as this, NAHS continued to grow as both an art society and community service club. Blurb by: Jennifer Ho

Thespian Honor Society

“WE ARE THE BEST CLUB IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. Okay, we exaggerate a bit-it’s called being dramatic.” The Thespian Society is an organization for students who invest a significant amount of time in theater: the cross-dressing drama geeks of the school, who spend their days, not baking in the sun, but basking in the stage-lights. In order to be inducted, students must have a passion for the stage. Thespians this year focused on maintaining traditions like popcorn-selling at school fairs, as well as cultivating new ones like hosting the first 21-hour theater lock down. “Most importantly, we bring character to this school. Get it? ‘Character’-as in characters... like, in a play? Because we’re actors...Never mind.”

Languages

The notion that joining honor societies is just for resume patting is prevalent amongst students and teachers alike in the high school. While there was truth in the belief that students were more interested in accumulating resume items for prospective colleges, the by-product was the promotion of their respective language and culture in the SAS community. In an annual exchange with the French School, French IV and AP students skip a day at SAS for a day at the French School. Students buddy up with a French student and follow them, experiencing a day in the life of

And the girls were goodlooking.” Chinese Honor Society hosted the annual Asian Film Fest. “It’s a way for us to spread culture throughout the high school in an interesting way,” CHS secretary Tika Marshall said. “We show one movie a day for three days, and they’re often Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Indian.”

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

on top of it all President: Lauren Felice Vice-President: Samantha Koh Secretary: Tika Marshall Communications Director: Melissa Huston Treasurer: Kevin Kim

With a packed year ahead of the Executive Council, the goal from the start became to give students a chance - a chance to voice their opinions, to cheer at Pep Rallies, to belt it out at SAS Idol, to get involved. With Homecoming and the back to school dance, Glow, kicking off the year, the tone was set for an exciting time that brought the best of the old and the creativity of the new. SAS saw traditions like two spirited IASAS tournaments and Winterball, new events like Water Wars, Asia Bowl and SAS’ Got Talent, and improved activities like a wild Homecoming Week and a final Pep Rally that had SAS cheering more than ever. The sentiment of the year was best expressed through the dancing of exec sponsors Eric Burnett and Kent Knipmeyer in the teacher’s Pep Rally performance. 2009-2010 proved to be full of fun and involvement, leaving SAS ready to start another great year next fall.

SENIOR

Life as a Senior Council representative was filled with glamour, excitement and action. In Student Council, we liked to give, and so to help along an awesome Senior class, we worked hard on giving out senior sweatshirts, senior gifts, a senior class gift to the school, senior memories, and helped make the year more fun by planning Senior Appreciation Day and of course, graduation. We could not have asked for a better, more fun class to work with. At the first tone of “I Gotta Feeling” seniors were willing to jump out onto the gym floor and dance their hearts out. As a group we saw a huge change this year with a measurable increase in spirit. Some things will always remain the same: the Class of 2010 ruled the school year. Blurb by: Alvi Hasan

JUNIOR

COUNCIL Freshman. We were at the bottom of the high school food chain, and expectations for our class were pretty low. “The freshman class has no spirit,” the other grades complained. But we always dressed in orange. “The freshman class never plans enough activities,” was the rumor constantly going around. And we planned the ‘2013 club’ and the freshman dance. “The freshman class is always last for everything” everyone would say. And yet we beat all the other grades at a dancing competition in the pep-rally. This year was not only a year of new experiences for our class, but it was also a year to give the other grades a new view on the freshman. Our council has done a terrific job, and we can’t wait for the next three years of high school. Blurb by: Nicky Muller

Sophomore Council had a good year, starting off the year by mainly focusing on raising our class’ spirit and helping with homecoming and pep rallies. We also participated in Food Fest and County Fair and staged fund-raisers to raise money for our class. When the second semester started, we started the club ‘Sophomore Dodgeball’ which was a so popular that around 100150 sophomores out every Friday to play dodgeball. In the fourth quarter we organized a Clash of the Classes dodgeball tournament. We like dodgeball. Our main goals this year were to raise more money and to promote our classes spirit, which we did. Sophomores ended up second overall for spirit points and we were all really happy with how we finished. Overall, it was a pretty good year. Blurb by: Bo Hamby

SOPHOMORE

Besides being the most influential and important class council of the past decade or so, this year’s Junior Class Council actively promoted school spirit through our numerous pep rallies and raised funds for the year’s most unforgettable event: prom. Prom 2010, also known as “A Red Carpet Affair,” took place in the Conrad Hotel’s grand ballroom and was a huge success. It was classy, lively, elegant and fun, and was certainly the council’s proudest achievement. The second major focus of this year was fund raising. This year the Juniors organized Gecko’s Night Out, a night dedicated to providing intermediate school students with entertainment through games. The event proved highly successful and was a major contributor to the class’ funds. If this year’s Junior Council was to be described in a phrase, it would be “really really good”.

While the PTA looked much the same as any U.S. PTA group, there was a significant difference. “The SAS PTA has the highest earnings of any PTA I have ever been involved with and the number of activities our PTA promotes is also much larger,” Kim Hamby said. The PTA also organized Pumpkin Patch, the October sale of pumpkins donated by APL, a global transportation company. Participants in each service club moved and cleaned the pumpkins in preparation for selling. Pumpkin Patch’s earnings this year reached $31,434, a new record, all of which went directly back to the service clubs and the organizations PTA supported. Story by Kalie Riemer

Students with a wide range of interests get together to share their talents and views with their peers.

Chalk For PEACe

For the third consecutive year, Peace Initiative sponsored the popular event Chalk For Peace, in which students gathered in the high school’s “town center” to write their words of peace on the floor of the foyer. Getting the school involved in a dedication to peace, as Charity Head Kathryn Tinker puts it, “is a fun way for students to celebrate International Peace Day.” a finished product After a long day of drawing and writing, SAS students were able to see the final scene of the Chalk for Peace mural.

HAITI RELIEF FUND

Putting its fundraising power to good use, SAS came together this year to raise funds for Haiti following the devastating earthquake in January. While some people donated money directly, a number of SAS students and service clubs devoted hours of time to raising money in their own ways. Overall the school was able to send over $100,000 to a relief fund in Haiti.

For any student who ever had an opinion too strong to keep to themselves, Peace Initiative’s quarterly Speaker’s Corners were the perfect outlet. Covering the world’s most pressing and controversial issues, the open mic speaking opportunity allowed students to voice their opinions in an environment that encouraged openness and learning.

Technical THEATER

Without the technical theater club, productions at SAS would be little more than a few performers on a black stage. Not only did the club add lighting, sound, and sets to each show, they spent weeks in advance preparing everything to help these show reach their fullest potentials, particularly during production weeks. Lucky members got to “play” with advanced technical gear, which is what lured a lot of them to the club. high tech Manning the tech booth, junior Isaac Virshup prepares the lighting for the SAS dance performance, “I’m Too Sexy for my Costume.” The technical theater club is responsible for all behind the scenes technology during drama and dance productions, including lighting, sound, sets, and video streaming.

For anyone who’s ever wondered how SAS sporting events always went so smoothly, they have Athletic Council to thank for that success. Members of the club were responsible for helping out during games and tournaments, particularly IASAS events. Each of the more than 100 participants showed their support at sporting events by selling t-shirts, timing races, moving equipment, and motivating athletes. Throughout the year Athletic Council helped SAS host both IASAS Track and Field and Swimming, as well as a number of smaller sporting events.

NEW STUDENTS’ JUDGEMENT Peer Support hosts the new student orientation every year, which immensely helps these kids transition into their new life. A year later, we asked some of these students to give us their honest opinion on their Peer Supporters, and this is what they said:

Sophomore Emma O’Connell was testimony to the effectiveness of Peer Support. Over the summer she was able to talk to her peer supporter and get answers to all her questions about sports, academics and life in Singapore. During the first few weeks of school, her peer supporter helped her adjust to the lifestyle at SAS, and, a year later, O’Connell was still thankful for the help she received.

Transferring from another international school in Singapore, senior Rushi Krishna said that her peer supporter, senior Samantha Koh, was helpful, but since she already knew some people at SAS, Koh did not need extensive help. Krishna did agree, however, that the whole system was beneficial to those students who moved here and did not know anyone else.

They worked to help new kids fit in by showing them around, introducing them to students, and encouraging them to join new clubs and sport teams. But keeping tabs on new students wasn’t their only task. They helped incoming freshman adjust by going to their homebase for a week and talking about the myths of high school. And most importantly, they kept spirits up with events like Wellness Week, where “free hugs” were given out and TV shows like “Friends” were shown in the chill room.

Sophomore Lucca Allevato had a peer supporter who helped him branch out to other group of friends, while still offering a support system that he could always go back to. He said that he is still good friends with his peer supporter.

Freshman Aysha Nesbitt moved to SAS from India, and said she had an easy time adjusting. She appreciated her peer supporter’s messages over the summer, but once here, she branched out on her own and made friends through the summer volleyball camp, one of the many outlets that allow new students to fit in.

With six issues this school year, the Eye included stories on past or upcoming school events, happenings around Singapore, and interesting surveys. Every Eye Staff member was a reporter who spent about ten hours in and out of class getting interviews and writing multiple drafts for a single article. When asked if the staff had ever gotten into trouble for any published articles, Co-Print Editor-in-Chief Ann Lee said that “It is impossible to avoid ruffling a few delicate feathers for any article. That’s what happens when you’re involved in the media, but we try to be objective and fair in every article we write.” reaching new limits Editor senior Melissa Huston makes the final corrections before making the online IASAS edition of the newspaper public. 2010 was the first year the Eye started being published online, which allowed students access to more material then ever before.

The Morning Show was one of the most public of clubs. Open to students who were taking or had completed the broadcast journalism class, the Morning Show was broadcast to all high school classrooms at 8:05 every morning to present school news to the student body. Clubs often used this ten-minute opportunity to promote upcoming events and activities. Although the audience saw only two anchors and the occasional cameraman, others worked off the set - scriptwriters, tech directors, character generator. and prompter operators. When asked what she got out of the club, host senior Sara Gaines said it helped her realize an interest in the craft and redirect her college interests to communications.

Film society was open to any students interested in learning or teaching filmmaking. Members focused on “using film as a medium to make life at SAS a little more vibrant,” according to President Ryan Chan. During their after-school meetings, the club watched short and feature-length films, created promotional announcements for other clubs, and produced independent projects. Their most logistically challenging project of the year, “Where the Heck is SAS?” – an idea taken from YouTube’s “Where the Hell is Matt?” – included a majority of the high school population on their Interim trip dancing in locations from around the globe.

Lovers of music, fashion, film, art, graphic design, and architecture expressed themselves in the company of likeminded students. Created by SAS alumnus Hilary Go, it was intended as an outlet for the artsy, and was student run except for the occasional words of wisdom from AA sponsor, Paul Welsh. Meeting deadlines, discussing budgets, setting up interviews, and going to exhibits were expected of AA members and part of what made the club realistic and fun.

Film Society organized SAS’s very own version of the popular YouTube viral video, “Where the Hell is Matt” in which students, spanning four continents, mimicked the goofy “Matt Dance” at locations around the world.

LEPROSY RELIEF ASSOCIATION

Your time is one of the best things you can give someone who has been shunned by society, and that is what members of the Leprosy Relief Association had to offer. They reached out to people with leprosy by visiting and befriending them every Friday. At the home, students played bingo, took excursions and talked to those affected by the disease. In addition, they took leftover food from Mr. Ho’s kitchen, another thing many people at the home looked forward to.

For the competition, they answered 200 general knowledge multiple-choice questions in the shortest time possible. Topics ranged from history, economics, government to math, geology and physics even “Useless Trivia.” Those who participated in Knowledge Bowl know how thrilling it was to collaborate as a team and answer the weirdest, most confusing and absurd questions known to humans. Their team effort and collaboration on many occasions got their team valuable points. This fall, they scored 1403 points, placing 2nd in the International Division and beating long time rival Shanghai American School for the first time in years.

Math Club was a group of SAS kids who loved exploring and solving mathematics. Weekly meetings started with a student led presentation on a particular math topic, then continued with competitions. This year, the SAS Math Club team placed Jong Chan Kim as the 33rd top scorer on the American Scholastic Mathematics Association Competition and Sam Park 35th on the Mandelbrot Competition. Outside of meetings, members taught peers during their free time via the math club sponsored tutoring programs.

Honor cODE cOMMITTEE

Like any other high school, SAS has its fair share of cheating, but some students displayed their dedication to the school cornerstone of honesty. The Honor Code Committee, a student organization dedicated to alleviating academic dishonesty at SAS, worked closely with deputy principals this year in recommending consequences for students accused of cheating. Students accused of cheating could meet with an honor code panel made up of club members - a jury of their peers. In the future, HCC intends to strengthen academic guidelines and promote integrity among the student body.

Students Against the Violation of the Environment, or SAVE Club, aimed to foster respect for the environment by promoting the three R’s: reduce, reuse and recycle. In the school community, SAVE members voluntarily recycled paper, aluminum, and plastic. By encouraging the community to recycle their waste, club members helped reduce the staggering amount of natural resources used to manufacture new products. For over 19 years, SAVE Club has been fortunate enough to have a consistent group of volunteers who have shown activism year after year. Through affiliation with the Roots & Shoots Organization and Jane Goodall Institute, SAVE integrated services aimed towards servicing the community: guiding the visually handicapped through the Sensory Trails on Pulau Ubin, delivering sustainably-packaged roses during the month of love, holding a Hunger Banquet to raise awareness about the pressing issue of food security throughout the world, and showing documentaries such as The Cove and The Inconvenient Truth during Earth Week. SAVE Club is one of the most prominent clubs on campus, and despite students’ complaints about their passion once in a while, it was evident that they truly helped make SAS better.

SOCIAL CLUBS

As a way to de stress from the day’s hectic activities, SAS students join clubs that focus on their interests and hobbies. Clubs such as Law Club and Business Club help students figure out if they like certain aspects of what they could be doing in the future, while Magic Club and Book Club are good ways for students to meet other people with the same interests.

BUSINESS CLUB

Students who took a business class not only perfected their lemonade stand skills, but also learned basic business concepts for marketing, human resources and finance. Business Club took topics beyond the basics and offered students interested in this field opportunities outside of the classroom to learn more about business theories and to participate in competitions. One of the competitions some members were invited to participate in was JA Titan. In this simulation, an SAS team competed against other schools in Singapore to see which participants could do the best job in allocating a firm’s budget, and the team with the most profit won.

For once, students dumped their bags at the door and entered the library with a new goal in mind: to rediscover the joy of reading for pleasure. At meetings, book club members discussed, recommended, and fought over their favorite books, watched and analyzed movies and ate Italian ice cream. This year, one of the book members enjoyed reading the most was sci-fi thriller Bad Monkeys by Matt Ruff. One of their favorite movies was Man on Wire. The club brought together students who wanted to intellectually discuss books other than the required ones assigned in class. Fun with films and fiction in the library... now that was a novel idea.

When students first heard the phrase “Puppy Love” and club in the same sentence, they couldn’t help but snicker. However, the many dedicated members made Puppy Love a strong club that gave the misfortunate dogs of Singapore a second chance at life. Members traveled to a shelter called Animal Lovers League every weekend, not only to donate their time playing with dogs, but to do much needed work around the shelter such as washing the dogs, preparing food and painting kennels. Their work didn’t end there. They also raised awareness of the availability of adoption opportunities and animal welfare to the student body, and raised S$1,260 to help supply the shelter with food and medical care.

MAGIC TRICKS 101 step 1 Place one card in front of your fingers with your thumb and pinkie securing them into place in front of your palm. Make a show out of it and wave your hand around to show people that there is nothing behind your hand.

MAGO (SAS Magic Club) was first established in 2007 with a purpose of student interaction and social service. This year, their focus was on developing their skills, especially when it came to cards and coins. They also discussed and practiced various tricks from different sources like books and the internet. Magic Club gave students who liked magic but never had an outlet for it a chance to improve their skills and practice their tricks to perfection. Whenever a member of MAGO took their cards out during a class or at breaks, they were sure to have a number of students around, staring in awe. Blurb by: Kevin Kim

When asked to share some of his magic tricks, Magic Club president Kevin Kim told us a magician never reveals his tricks. But he did give us a few tips on how to perform a good stunt without getting caught.

step 2 Quickly move so that your stretched fingers are tucked behind the card and your hand is shaped like a knuckle. Make sure the card is being tightly held so that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall on the final part of your trick.

step 3 Swiftly straighten your fingers so that the card flips back and is resting on the back side of your hand. Once you have mastered the basics, you can try to play around and create suspense around your magic trick.

Ask a music ian how many years it too k them to finally become first cha ir. Ask a photographer ho w often they’ve stained their clothe s with chemicals. This is the department of passion and sensations - and whether we feel am azing, terrible, or require medical attention, we always fee l alive. And in the end, we always return home to the arts.

Behind the Scenes Voices echo through the halls of the theater. Below, in the dressing room old clothes are pulled from dusty racks and makeup artists age, beautify, or distort. Upstairs the audience pours into the theater. Backstage, covered in black, the tech crew prepare props and ready costumes to be picked up by the actors. In the lighting booth, sound and light crew look through the glass window down onto the stage as they make their final preparations for the show. The stage is lit to resemble London’s Globe Theater, where many of William Shakespeare plays were staged. The narrator, played by sophomore Adam Reed, walks on stage, book in hand, ready to guide the audience through the Complete Works of William Shakespeare - Abridged, that is. He gets the first laugh with the usual pre-show announcement about cell phones, but adds caution that, in

case of emergency, oxygen masks will fall from the ceiling. Romeo and Juliet, played by seniors Jesse Scarborough and Alvi Hasan, kick off the evening leading the audience through this romantic tragedy at a quick pace. In a scene that few recalled, Juliet barfs into the audience, then falls asleep. Later, upon seeing Romeo’s tiny, spring-loaded dagger, the audience was in hysterics yet again. But what many people will remember was the magical kiss between Romeo and Juliet. A quick run-through of Hamlet included audience participation and a puppet show. During one of the funniest moments, Hamlet misses his spotlight when attempting to deliver the famous “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy. The play was a success with a packed house both nights. No one could have fallen asleep as each play was short and brief and kept the audience moving through all 36 of Shakespeare plays.

Dancing Through History The burgundy curtains open to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” as 20 choreographers begin the show. Backstage, Tech Club members and teachers are helping coordinate the 173 dancers, shushing them to keep their voices down. “How’s the audience!?” one asks peeking out of the curtains. In the make-up room, dancers apply finishing touches and make sure their hair is slicked back. The rule is: if there’s hair covering the face, the dance captains and teachers will slick it back and drown it with wet, sticky hair gel. The dancers who were ready in full costume stood outside the make-up room snacking on dance club’s traditional puppy chow. Chex Mix covered in Nutella, peanut butter, and powdered sugar were the

magical ingredients. Whoever said “DO NOT FEED THE DANCERS” clearly have never met the SAS dancers. The idea of 2009’s annual dance show, Snapshots, came to HS dance coordinator Tracy Van der Linden’s mind as she was flicking through “The Visual History of the Modern World”. Snapshots touched on events from Apollo 11’s moon landing, 9/11, the invention of the iPod, to the tragic death of Michael Jackson. The tone was serious and brought tears to some parents and teachers who had a special connection with the event. Others smiled through the pieces as they saw the product of nine weeks of tough rehearsal, preparation, and a few injuries. By: Karisa Sukamto

Show Review E!’s fashion police might not have approved of second semester’s dance show theme “I’m Too Sexy for my Costume,” but the complete fashion faux pas resulted in a colorful, energetic performance - a complete success! With a collection of over 4000 costumes in storage, kept inventoried by superwoman Paula Silverman, high school dance coordinator Tracy Van der Linden thought it was necessary to take these outfits out of hiding. The clash of feather boas, shudder shades, army pants, and unitards filled the stage with memorable dance choreography. Renditions of Chicago’s “Cell Block Tango” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” did these songs justice. Michael Too’s and Young Rock’s hip-hop pieces were impossible not to tap your feet to. The perfectly synchro-

nized duets, captivating contemporary pieces and up-beat dances all had their great moments. “It was cool to see the final product of all the hard work especially because the theme was completely brand new and creative,” said senior Stephanie Kendall. Second semester was known to be the busiest time with AP exams, mocks and frenzied work to salvage grades. Committed dancers did not allow those stressors or the daily tech and dress rehearsals in the two weeks before show time to phase them. There wasn’t a better way to end the school year than by hearing the audience’s loud applauding and humming out of the auditorium to, “I’m too sexy for my shirt. Too sexy for my... ”.

Most students have yet to find their calling, but Cindy claims art is and has always been the one thing she’s good at. “Arts keeps you sane. It lets you draw so you don’t flip out,” she said. Her artwork has been sent to IASAS and is displayed on the front of every senior’s 2010 sweatshirt. In the near future she hopes to fulfill her dreams of being a graphic illustrator, telling stories through her art.

At age five she began piano, and in seventh grade took up her instrument of expertise - the flute. Otani says she can’t imagine her life without music. Starting an at such a young age has taught her to focus and be confident of her playing abilities. “There are different ways of appreciating music, and playing music is definitely one of my favorite ways.”

She was also the youngest horn player in the Singapore National Youth Orchestra (SNYO) at the age of fourteen. She will be doing a double-major in music and science at Oberlin College. Her solo at Commencement will be one to remember for a long time. “I’m going to miss all the people I have met and been able to perform with for the past four years.”

A Night to Remember A theme of red flowed through the hall, and oversized golden tassels hung from each banister. Spotlights on the mezzanine lit audience members as they walked through the main entrance. Singers warmed up their voices, musicians tuned their instruments, dancers stretched and the emcees practiced their lines, all in preparation for the big night. The show opened large with a spirited rendition of the all time favorite “Comedy Tonight”. It was the first of two performances of Cabaret, the variety show that replaced Yulefest, this year. The SAS Singers wowed the audience with their melodic harmonies and scarlet red costumes. The emcees, seniors Alvi Hasan, Nina Miller

and sophomore Kate Penniall guided the audience the evening’s offerings and amused them with their banter and poetry recitation. Chorale entertained the audience with numbers like “Mac the Knife” and “Rhythm of Life”. “This was a fantastic experience, one which I learned so much from performing in. I believe that Cabaret was a success that should continue,” choir member Brooke McManigal said. Strings Director Steve Bonnette directed his musicians through four different pieces, including the audience pleaser “Smells like Team Spirit”. An eight minute performance by the strings ensemble and Dance 3 class concluded the evening.

Later when she moved to Singapore she joined the Lyric Opera and performed La Boheme and Les Conted D’Hoffman with them. She was a member of Chanterie and later joined SAS singers. “I feel like I can express myself in a no other way than I could when I sing.”

Dominic Wong Danielle Courtenay said one might think that Wong sings just because “chicks love it,” but his passion for singing has existed since way before his infatuation for girls. Students were charmed with his performance at prom, his participation in the rendition of Backstreet Boys’s ‘I Want it That Way’, and many more performances. His perfect pitch and piano playing abilities have flown him to IASAS all four years, and he wants to continue serenading in Northwestern’s acapella group. Circa 2020, Dominic may just be a top music producer. “I like making music. It’s a way to express myself,” he said.

From March 8th to 15th, all the musicians of SAS came together on stage for a line-up of performances. The sheer number of over 750 instruments along with 250 singers could have blown out the theater’s sound system, but instead, it brought joy to the auditorium’s full house. Along with parents and students, the audience included a group from the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped, accompanied by SAVE Club volunteers. “Every single SAS music student is playing this week,” high school band director Brian Hill said. “So, our band, strings, and choir are combined in a way never done at any other time of the year.” SAS brings in guest conductors each year and this year Steven Leek came for choir and William Jones for strings. These guest conductors spend time sharing their

knowledge of music and to inspiring them. “You only get one shot at singing your best at the concert, so sing your best every-time,” Leek said in his Australian accent accompanied by furious hand gestures. Collaborating with the older students also encouraged the younger musicians from grade five onwards to continue their pursuit of music. Those students were able to see what was in store for them in their high school years if they continued their music. The music festival was a success and will continue to be a long lasting tradition at SAS. “School pride in playing music in a fine concert is the same as the pride in winning a football game,” choir director Phillip Green said.

He was a natural and found an immediate liking for the cello’s “sweet sound.” Since then, he has even tried the electric cello.

Kendall Covington Junior Kendall Covington took up dance as a hobby at age five, but her passion for dance was unearthed when she moved to Singapore her junior year and made the varsity dance team. Covington said that the combination of art with physical movement sets dance apart from other activities. She can’t believe it took 16 years to realize her passion for dance, but now that she has, she can’t stop. “There’s no rule book that says you must do all turns this way. Sure there is ‘proper technique” but you can always mix it up, whatever feels right.”

Kelly Schuster Coming from a family who loves theater, it comes as no surprise Schuster is a self-proclaimed “drama queen.” Assuming a character’s persona and having only one shot at a perfect performance is what Kelly loves about theater. The costumes, the blinding stage lights, and the audience’s reaction simply enlarge her passion. She acted in several productions and co-directed two. Her resume includes roles in “Philadelphia Here I Come,” “Seussical the Musical,” “Bang Bang,” and “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged.” “I love plays because I love to play,” Schuster said.

Yuvika Tolani Yuvika has a kin to watching shows from a different perspective rather than from back stage as an actress - a reason she has dived into the shoes of director. “The difference between being an actress and a director is focusing on the whole picture and whole stage instead of one character in the piece,” Tolani said. The organizational part of directing played to her strengths, and her first break was in her sophomore year when she codirector Scenes and Monologues with Danielle Courtenay. Tolani will be majoring in Theater Arts at Yale University and hopes to gain plenty of experience. Her purple notebook where she keeps all her directing, Thespian, acting and production notes will continue to fill as she uncovers new aspects of theater.

IASAS in Manila Music and art squeezed into three days made sure of a hectic, yet very enjoyable Cultural Convention. The little spare time was spent hanging out at the nearby mall Market Market, snacking on frozen yoghurt, and devouring excessive amounts of delicious Krispy Kreme. These select musicians spent long hours preparing for the final orchestra and honor recital. During the day, there were various workshops and showings of each musician’s work. Three musicians were chosen to shine solo on the final night - Minjae Lee on the clarinet, Akane Otani on the flute, and Sophia Tinger on the French horn. The compilation of talent left musicians feeling inspired and greatly improved. “Having more experiences playing with new people and different conductors adds a different perspective to how we view music,” said junior Becka

Ruan. Although junior Devansh Pasumarty shared that it was extremely exhausting, Cultural Convention was amazing with the mix of talented, fervid musicians. Art delegates created an exhibition combining pieces from each IASAS school. The artists critiqued each others work, sharing compliments and suggestions, before opening the show to the public. Once the art show was over, artists were occupied by jewelry making, photo transferring, and public art workshops. “All the art kids learned not to judge art by technical terms or how pretty it looks,” said senior Tatianna Nsar. “SAS is the only AP school for art, and all the others are in the IB program. They have more historical background in each piece, but we have a lot of creativity. by Karisa Sukamto It’s really different.”

Whose Got the Guts?

Be like Prefontaine, work till it hu rts, aim for the stars, let nothing hold you back. The run ners, ballers and volleyballers did just that.

“A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can pun ish himself into exhausting pac e, and then at the end, punish him self even more.” Said Olympian runner, Steve Prefontaine. For the Eagles Cross Country tea m, running through punishment was something all too familiar. The cross country team has won IAS AS for the past six years and have been proving their guts thro ugh it all and this year was no exception. Conquering hills, swe ating through MacRitchie and laughing at Coppell all fall in bet ween the great XC seasons. For the soccer players of this season , going undefeated was something they became pros at.

Throughout IASAS, both Eagles soccer teams went undefeate d; however, the girls dealt with a crush and didn’t make it to fina ls while the boys tied against ISK L in the championships. The Eagles put up a stronger fight at IASAS than ever before and played like champions not onl y at IASAS but throughout the season. The volleball players this year grew stronger and stronger throughout the season with retu rning champions and new and improved players walking ont o the team. In Taipei, the Ealges played so well throughout eve ry tournament and were walking on clouds. Both the boys and girls teams won silver medals at the championships against Bangkok but kept their chins up because they knew they played like winners and performed like champions. Congratulations Eagles on a me morable first season, you played like champions, worked through the blood, sweat and tears and proved who had the guts at the end of the season.

1st Season Sports 247


A Winning Combination Family support, coaches wisdom or pure athleticism? What leads the Eagles to an award winning second season is up to the players. Together Everyone Achieves Mo re. This year the 2nd season spo rts played with the help of one word; team.

At the end of each day, SAS sta nds tall, gives it their all, and talks small. The sports of basket ball, tennis, swimming, rugby, and touch had a memorable sea son with their friends and family’s support. This year the 2nd season spo rts teams all played with one wor d in mind: team. At the end of eac h day, the athletes stood tall and gave their all. Basketball, tennis, swimming, rugby and touch all had memorable seasons with support from friends, families, and most importantly, their teamm ates. The IASAS tournament saw a successful end to the season with many of the teams bringing hom e the gold, silver and bronze medals thanks to the fans’ sup port. Even with IASAS and exchanges in different countri es, friends and families still cam e out to cheer on the Eagles. “I am very happy with how all the teams did this year,” Athletic s Director Mimi Molchan said. “Ev ery year I am even more impressed with the competition that SAS brings out during the season and in IASAS.”

Girls and boys basketball brough t home golds from the IASAS tournament hosted by Interna tional School of Kuala Lumpur . Battling it out in Jakarta, the rug by boys gave it their all in the championship game against Jak arta International School, coming back home with a silver medal, the girls with the bronze . With them in Jakarta, the boys tennis team finished a close fourth in a memorable match aga inst the International School of Manila, and the girls clinchin g the bronze metal, also against Manila. Back on our own hom e turf, boys swimming finished third, while the girls extended their 13-year winning streak with yet another first place finish. Story by Corey Burkett

Nothing to Hold them Back

Hours of rain storms, equatorial heat and even protests in Bangkok could not ho ld back our athletes from shining through season thr ee.

Third season is always a time of mixed emotions for athletes: fatigue for those that get a me re two-day break, if that, in between seasons, excitement for the others that have been waiting the entire year for their sport, frustration that the season coincides with the busiest (an d rainiest) time of year, and sadness with the realization tha t the school year is almost ove r. Especially for seniors. But that is not to say that they have nothing to be proud of. Track and field senior co-captain s and four year veterans Alexis Lauzon and Max Shaulis extend ed the boys winning streak to 13 years in front of the hom e crowd, badminton senior girl s captain and four year veteran Given Lee led her team to fina lly clinch a silver medal, while sof tball girls captain Rachel McCab e participated in her 12th and fina l IASAS, having attended every tournament for volleyball, bas ketball and softball since her freshman year. Not even the blistering Singap ore heat along with the infamo us monsoon season, not even the government protests in Bangko k were enough to faze our athlete s: the best finishes that boys and girls badminton had seen in years, double gold for girls and boys softball, and double gold for the track and field teams.

What is Interim Semester?

What does interim mean to you ? It’s meant to be much more than an informative class trip, instilling perseverance, acceptance, and as a memory of its entirety: timelessness. Perseverance. Interim’s about testing your bou ndaries—acknowledging that they exist, and attempting to reach beyond them. These challenges have presented the mselves in countless forms: ath letic performance, personal interac tions, and cultural differences. Whether you’re trekking in Tib etan India, kayaking in Oman, scuba diving in Indonesia… it’s all one of the same. Each trip was purposely designed to cha llenge students and assess the ir abilities. Acceptance. Interim’s much more than just plain exploration. The focus of a culturally titled interim trip was not about taking city tours, and monument-hopping from place to place; it was an attemp t at embracing diversity. The open-m indedness of people of differe nt kinds: of different social circles, cultures and ages. Because truthfully speaking, after the trip s were over, the participants did n’t necessarily remember the nam e of that one building they visi ted on the second day of their one -week stay, but instead, the less ons learned in a newfound sense of tolerance, and acceptance of diff ere nce s. Tim ele ssn ess . Whether you spent your interim week in Singapore, exploring, and discovering new parts of the island; whether you flew out to Jordan and finally got to experience the mysteries of the Dead Sea firsthand; whethe r you went on a safari adventure through Kruger National Park; whether you spent your hours house building in the Philippines for tho se who, in sharp contrast, do not follow our materialistic ways… It was an experience; one tha t you will take with you into the future: the memories and opportunitie s for learning? Countless. Interim semester.
