Alright! Halfway mark! Take some time to relax and rest your mind with these pictures. Remember the Sec Two Orientation Camp that Mr How and I organised (the only batch to have had it actually!) and you had to move in groups from station to station to chalk up points? Can't remember which class won. Here goes...

The time has come guys! Give it your all!
Drink plenty of water in the morning (helps to keep brain fresh and wake!)
Check that all your stationery are in good working condition! (No felt or gel pens! Ball points are best! Don't forget calculators, curve rulers etc)
Keep watch on the clock as you're doing you papers AND
ALWAYS leave time to edit your work and check for careless errors!
It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down resistance, sweeps away all obstacles.
~ Claude M. Bristol
Have faith in yourself and the effort you've put in! Remember, you want to receive your results next year with confidence and NO REGRETS! : ) All the best 4SA!

bring entry proof, badge, IC, school uniform, long pants, short hair, a studious look, your brains, stationaries, and a tie.

One of the above items are not needed. I won't say it's the last one, but it's one of them. The last one.

May you always have work for your hands to do.

May your pockets hold always a coin or two.

May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.

May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near.

And may God fill your heart with gladness and cheer.

Never Forget (Take That!)

And we've come so far,
and we've reached so high,
and we've looked each day and
night in the eye,
and we're still so young,
and we hope for more...

We've come a long way
But we're not too sure where we've been
We've had success
We've had good times
But remember this...

(Ronald, would you like to post the photos for today party?)

class bbq?

hi everyone thinking of instead of a class chalet, what about a class bbq? maybe can rent one beside the beach then can go someone's house to play some cards (or mahjong) at night? cos chalet a bit costly. bbq cost will be only for the food, the renting of bbq pit. so far no plan yet. what you think?

Just to clarify...

To echo what Matthew just posted: Yes, PLEASE DO come to school tomorrow, even if it is just from 7.55am to 11am.

There'll be lots of important administrative things to settle tomorrow.

  • Firstly, there's the 'O' Level exam briefing in the hall from 7.55 to 8.30.

  • Then, from 8.30 to 9.15, Ms Seah will be doing some administrative work with regards to giving out the CCA Records, Preliminary Results slip, and the class contact list.

  • Also, the school will be collecting $2 from every student tomorrow. Please bring this.

To explain what the $2 is for: According to Ms Rathai, this $2 will go into the stamps and envelopes so that the school can inform us to collect our 'O' Level Results in January, as well as the SGC [School Graduating Certificate] later in the year [Around Teacher's Day, from what I've seen this year]. The SGC includes your 'O' Level Certificate [you'll only get the result slip in January, not the actual Certificate], as well as the Testimonial. [And CCA Record, i think? citation needed.]. This was what I heard, so correct me if I'm wrong.

UPDATE: I may have mistaken what she said. It could be for the SGC file.

After the admin work, there'll be recess. Please assemble in the Upper Courtyard by 9.40 with your ties on for the Farewell Assembly.

So, please, pass this message around to those who have been either late for school or absent from school. Studying is important, but so are administrative works.

Oh, if possible, can we have a class photo just before we leave tomorrow?

UPDATE 2: I forgot to mention: ACJC open house was on Wednesday, NOT on Saturday. Please go for Chemistry instead, as there is no open house this Saturday, contrary to what I posted earlier on. My apologies.

Extra Lesson Plan

Mrs Yeo will be having a few extra lessons before the two Chem papers, so do jot these dates down:

Ms Chua has emailed a set of SOVA sample questions to do, please complete them and bring your answers on Saturday, 11 Oct. Lesson starts at 8am.

Also, Check this link for the map to SEAB. It's the one along Lower Delta Road, and I attached a map just in case. A represents Potong Pasir Ave 3, B represents Lower Delta Road. Just to give a sense of scale, it's about 19 minutes on a smooth taxi ride.

Alternatively, take 16, 33, 63, 123, 195, 851 from Tiong Bahru MRT.

Be there before 1.30pm on 15 Oct.

Invites! Class Contacts!

In case you guys have super souped-up SPAM protection that blocks every single email sent to you,

I just sent out invitations to access the class contact list.

For around half the class, I have sent out the invites that allowed editing long ago, so for these people, please pester me to resend the invitation to access only if you need. I did not send anything to your inboxes.

It'll come as a Google Docs invitation, with a link that you'll click to verify your email which you use to log in to Google Docs.

I decided to use Google Docs because it's pretty secure, since I can lock it down so only 44 people can access the document. No such thing as strangers being able to access the sensitive private information [except for the Google guys at Silicon Valley, but even they have access to this blog, so heck]. Also, it lets people collaborate and edit, so I won't be the only person updating the changes [thanks Aaron!].

I sent out in bulks of less than 10 at a time, so as to avoid triggering SPAM filters. How did it go?

If you who did not receive the invitation, please let me know by email.
I have 4 people whom I did not send to, because their email address was not in the contact list: Vishnu, Matthew Tang, Melvin Tan, and Rakesh. If you guys have an email address, do let me know, so that I can send you guys the invitation to the contact list. If not, no worries. Aaron [if I'm not having hearing problems or memory problems] is going to print out the static, hard copy of the contact list. When he does, don't drop or lose this, especially not in public. The only place where you may lose the paper is in your locker, and at home. We won't want mysterious phone calls, do we?

For the people who can edit, I hope you guys can help me out by editing out the mistakes and updating the contact list, especially when someone moves house or changes handphone numbers. That'll be very helpful. As the saying goes: "With great power, comes great responsibilities", so please don't abuse it by making a mess of the contact list. It's a time-consuming 'project'. [Just ask Aaron.]
