COVID-19 Precautionary Measures for Term 3

COVID-19 Precautionary Measures

2020 TERM 3

As our country makes a gradual exit from Circuit Breaker, and as we welcome Eunoians back from Home Based Learning and the May holidays, we remain mindful of the continued need to ensure the safety of our staff and students. The college has put in place a suite of safe management measures, described below, which will be strictly enforced until further notice.

Reducing Number of Students in School

Each day, only one cohort of students will return to school for face-to-face lessons. Students would engage in Home Based Learning on days where they are not in school.

Stay Home Notice / Leave of Absence / Approved Absence

All students returning from overseas, regardless of country or mode of entry, on or after 14 March 2020 have been / will be served a 14-day Stay Home Notice by ICA. The day of arrival will count as Day 0.

If a student or member of staff is staying in the same household as an individual on Home Quarantine Order (HQO) or Stay Home Notice (SHN), he or she must inform the school immediately. He or she will be placed on Leave of Absence for the duration of the HQO/SHN.

If a student or member of staff is staying in the same household as an adult on Medical Leave for flu-like symptoms (e.g. cough, fever), he or she must inform the school immediately. He or she will be placed on Approved Absence (AA) for the duration of the Medical Leave.

All students on Stay-Home Notice, LOA or AA will be supported with Home Based Learning.

Temperature Screening and Visitor Management

All staff and students take their temperatures twice daily, in the morning and again at 3 pm.

All visitors to the school are required to take their temperature, complete a Visitor Declaration form and check-in on the SafeEntry system (by using a QR Code reader or by scanning their ID). These include parents who drive into school to pick up their children. Visitors should check-out on the SafeEntry system as they exit the college.

Any visitors with a fever or flu-like symptoms would not be allowed entry into the college.

Safe Management on Campus

All students and staff are expected to wear a face mask when in college, except meal times and PE lessons. Teachers can use face shields instead of masks when teaching, and while maintaining a safe distance from students.

Students proceed directly to classrooms when they arrive in school for the flag-raising ceremony.

Students have fixed exam-style seating in class. Materials are provided for wipe-down routine.

Lectures have been replaced by lecture recordings to be viewed on HBL days.

Kenneth Hoh

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Kenneth Hoh (18-O5) is a student of outstanding academic ability with a natural charisma. Demonstrating excellence in a wide range of areas in college life, he remained steadfast and humble in demeanour. His impeccable character made him a natural leader in diverse contexts. Kenneth’s talent in music saw him being a recipient of the MOE Music Elective Scholarship, as well as attaining a Licentiate Diploma in Piano Performance with Distinction from Trinity College London in 2018. His composition, An Odyssey into Self, was selected for performance at an MOE Composition Workshop for junior college music students. He was also a part of the Bicultural Studies Programme, and showed profound understanding of both Western and Chinese cultures. His other accolades include: attending the Junior College Law Programme offered by the Singapore Academy of Law; being a Peer Tutor under the college’s Growing Leaders with Initiative, Dedication & Empathy (GLIDE) Programme; as well as leading Eunoia Debate Society to clinch various awards despite being a young club. Kenneth was a recipient of the SAF Young Leader Award, in recognition of Kenneth’s excellent academic and co-curricular achievements.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

Today is a momentous occasion for all us, as it marks the end and outcome of our 2 year academic journey in EJC. While I am certainly nervous about what is to come, I know that this is not the end of my own process of growth, learning and self-development. Regardless of my results, the resilience and grit I honed over my 2 years in Eunoia makes the journey worth celebrating. The grades we receive today do not dictate our goals; they merely determine the path we will take towards realizing our dreams. I am confident that this clarity and conviction of purpose will allow us to move forward, regardless of our A-level results. 

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My journey to the A-level was filled with ups and downs --- occasions of celebration and relief as well as moments of self doubt and tribulations. Above it all, however, it was a journey where I learnt a lot about myself and matured tremendously, not in spite of, but because of the challenging nature of the exams. Overarching this was the support I received from my family and friends, which I am truly grateful for. The positive learning environment and strong family culture in Eunoia was deeply helpful in the lead up to the final exams. 

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Managing and balancing my various commitments in college, like Debate, CG chair activities and the Music Elective Programme (MEP) taught me a lot about the importance of time management, discipline and resilience. The many late nights spent working with teammates for the next debate, practicing my piano pieces tirelessly to perfection, and revising for upcoming tests were difficult. However my passion for the various programmes and the clarity of purpose I possessed drove me to push through and try my best. Each challenge was not merely an obstacle - instead, I took each one as an opportunity to learn, improve, reflect and grow. 

Faith Wong

ALUMNA OF SINGAPORE CHINESE GIRLS' SCHOOL

Faith Wong (18-U1) demonstrates an impressive desire for knowledge acquisition, constantly exercising proactiveness in seeking out opportunities for intellectual growth. As testament to her academic achievements, borne of tenacity and intellectual independence, she was awarded the prestigious Humanities Scholarship in 2018 and was placed on the Dean’s list in 2018. Her penchant for exploring uncharted territories in search of opportunities for personal growth was also revealed when she took the leap of faith to enter as a participant for the UOB Painting of the Year competition. As President of EJ Drama Club, Faith worked tirelessly with a countenance of joy and spirit of servant leadership, helming the batch production titled Surveillance in 2018.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I don’t think I quite registered my results just yet. It all still feels very surreal. I definitely owe a lot to my teachers who provided constant support over the last 2 years, both with regards to my academics and mental health. As much as I hated it, all the homework and assignments really were crucial in building a strong and lasting foundation of skills and knowledge in my subjects which really paid off in the A-Level examinations. For my weakest subject, Economics, which I had never gotten an A grade in, until the A-Level (haha), I owe everything to Mr David Hoe, who saw me almost daily in the period leading up to A-Level for consultations during which we deconstructed the long-held misconceptions of mine, which had always kept me from achieving the grades I wanted to achieve. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

In retrospect, I’m very grateful to Eunoia for giving me many opportunities to grow in terms of leadership, and in terms of developing myself. In the white-hot, highly-pressured ‘furnace’ that is JC life, I’ve been extremely lucky to have forged close bonds with my peers and teachers who have pushed me out of my comfort zone, supported me, and allowed me to grow exponentially. For example, my role as Drama president was my first ever major leadership role and I went into it extremely unsure, but through it, I learnt a lot about leadership and collaboration, and especially the need to be vulnerable and courageous and to embrace discomfort, in developing a strong sense of trust among members, which is crucial in my CCA in making good art and in crafting an unforgettable experience for those in Drama.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

JC life is so intense that often you can get lost in your academics and extracurricular commitments, but from my experience, this isn’t exactly sustainable and can take quite a toll on your mental health. So, I think it is extremely important to almost uncompromisingly protect time outside of school doing things you love, to provide balance in life and keep yourself happy and healthy in the long run. Spend time with your family, read books outside of the curriculum, work on self-improvement, or go exploring! Even during the exam period. The only time I kind of broke this rule was in the week leading to the A-Level examinations.

Sarah-Ann Tan

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Sarah-Ann Tan (18-U1)'s passion for the Humanities saw her being awarded the Humanities Scholarship in 2018. Her zest for the Humanities has undoubtedly contributed to the vibrancy of the wider College community. She played a pertinent and pioneering role in ensuring the success of the College’s inaugural Literature Festival where together with her class, and also shared her love for Economics to the rest of the College through presenting her research paper on Behavioural Economics to the College. With a heart to serve the student leadership community Sarah-Ann attended the SMU Leadership Symposium 2018 as EJC’s representative, and took part in the planning and executing of our college’s inaugural Leadership Academy Camp where was instrumental in planning for the dialogue with prominent leaders such as Member of Parliament Ms Denise Phua. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I owe so much to the teachers who have taught and inspired me. These are the teachers who worked beyond school hours just to help us with our essay outlines and clarify our doubts, who sacrificed their lunch breaks just to have consults we desperately needed, and who believed in each and every one of us even when we didn’t. I was also surrounded with the most supportive friends who provided incessant encouragement and further ignited my passion for the subjects I study. 

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My two years in Eunoia have been extremely fulfilling. Besides pursuing a subject combination I really loved, I had the privilege of serving my CCA, ODAC, as its secretary and my CG as its Economics Representative. These opportunities enabled me to serve, lead and hopefully inspire various groups of people!

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Never lose sight of the purpose you have determined for yourself. Your passions and aspirations in life and the meaning that matters to you. The academic rigour in JC can and will be very demanding and amidst all the hectic-ness, it is easy to lose sight of what matters to you. But I hope you will always be intentional in using and applying what you have learnt. Seek to draw connections between theory (what you learn in class) and reality, and use your knowledge in furthering your passions and purpose.

 

Isabel Nadine Tan

ALUMNA OF SINGAPORE CHINESE GIRLS' SCHOOL

Isabel Nadine Tan (18-U1) was awarded the Humanities Scholarship in 2018 and was placed on the Dean’s list in 2018. Isabel sought continuously to expand her intellectual horizons in her study of the humanities by reading Economics at the H3 level, where she then co-organised EJC’s inaugural Introduction to Game Theory workshop for JC1 students. Her impressive breadth of knowledge on current affairs was displayed during the highly selective Pre-University Seminar, as well as the College’s Growing Leaders with Initiative, Dedication & Empathy (GLIDE) Programme. Naturally equipped with a strong set of leadership skills, Isabel was elected as the captain of EJC Tennis, leading the school team to clinch a Top 4 position in the National School Games 2019. She also took on other leadership roles, such as an Orientation Group Leader, and a House Committee member. Her involvement in planning for House Interaction Time, House Parties and Orientation was instrumental in shaping Uzuri House culture. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS, AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THESE RESULTS?

It was a really pleasant surprise to receive my results and I feel so grateful and blessed for what I got. It was really important that I took responsibility for my studies in JC, especially with the newfound freedom that I had. What helped me most was to book consultations with my subject tutors whenever I had free time, be it to consolidate my learning or clarify doubts I had in tutorials or lectures. It was also important that I knew my limitations, be they emotional, mental or physical, and adhered by them. Studying at home gave me the space to unwind and rest but I also had to be mindful of my time management and be disciplined in my revision and practices. Something my civics tutor also reminded me of during this stressful period was to take time off for things that meant a lot to me, such as spending time with my family and having quiet time by myself. There was always still anxiety and fear before each paper but it really helped to know that I had done what I could without overloading myself.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

I would say that these two years were thoroughly unexpected. Even though I was initially skeptical coming into a new junior college, it was this newness that gave me many chances to contribute to the school in one way or another, and to appreciate the contributions of fellow Eunoians. All the people I’ve met in these two years have touched my life, even in small ways, and it was these friendships that kept me going in a time of stress and transition. From a simple “hello” in passing to spending breaks to unwind together to enduring hours of back to back classes and training, the support of my peers made JC life far more enjoyable and was truly the driving force behind my journey. Another motivation was my teachers’ endless support and passion, who put up with my asking for consults constantly and believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.

WHAT ADVICE AND ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Something I had to learn was that it’s never too late to pick yourself up and try again. At the start of J2, I found myself under a lot of stress as I began training for the national school games, was part of Eunite, started my H3 course and embarked on the final stretch before A Levels. It was emotionally and physically exhausting and after a particularly draining day, I told myself that I was going to give up, feeling like I was wearing myself down for nothing. Yet, it was through speaking to my family and tutors in school that I decided to press on and keep doing my best. JC life isn’t going to be easy but it was truly the most rewarding two years, as I was challenged in many ways to grow intellectually and as a person. Don’t shy away from the discomfort that JC brings but also remember not to let school life consume you. One day, you’re going to make it through and be proud of how far you’ve come, just like the seniors before you!

Matthias Ho

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Matthias Ho (18-I2) is an all-rounded student who displayed a spirit of excellence in not only his studies, but also in college-wide programmes and the wider community. Matthias was placed on the JC1 Dean’s List (Academic) and an awardee of the MOE Pre-University Scholarship. He was also the overall student-in-charge for the 2018 Student Forum, where he and his team facilitated a series of student-led forums to allow the student body to raise ideas and suggestions to further student college culture and improve existing processes. Matthias served as an Executive Member of the Pasir Ris Youth Executive Committee since 2017, and was a recipient of the Singapore Police Force Book Prize in 2019.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I feel satisfied with my results. Initially, I was having a lot of doubts but closer to the release of the results, I decided to embrace and accept the results, no matter how good or how bad, without much expectations. I am really glad that my hard work had paid off. 

I am thankful for my friends and family that were always by my side, supporting me as I went through this journey. I am also especially grateful for the teachers who do not hesitate to answer our queries and dedicate their previous time to conduct consultations to help us improve. I think what really helped me is the support and the environment that helped to spur me on and maintain positivity. No matter what, I think pushing on and not giving up, while maintaining a positive learning attitude had really helped me to improve. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

I think that my 2 years in Eunoia was really well spent. People think of JC as a purely academic institution, but for me, Eunoia was a school that provided me with many enriching experiences and many meaningful relationships. Apart from the countless hours trying to complete tutorials, revising notes and finish past year papers, what I remember the most are the little things - the tutorials where we not only learnt but had fun amongst ourselves and teachers, the times where we walked to Ghim Moh for lunch, the small pockets of break times where we either rushed to finish tutorials or took a quick nap. 

I am also especially grateful for my teachers, because they are inspiring, caring and try to teach us more than what is required in the syllabus, and more importantly, life lessons.  

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Work hard and be positive! The journey is going to be long, but notice that everyone is going through the same thing. Although you and your friends might encounter different difficulties, you will always be able to support each other. No matter what happens along the way, look forward and keep going. If you are falling behind, don’t give up and stop, but keep on running because you can catch up. You cannot control the circumstances, but you can control your attitude and action. Also, it is important to be consistent. The two years here is a marathon, not a sprint, so remember to pace yourselves and not burn out! Don’t always rely on external motivations, but instead develop systems and routines to ensure you can keep on going and do consistent work. 

Megan Choo

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Megan Choo (18-O4) is an exceptional thinker and possesses outstanding intellectual habits. Her academic excellence was shown through attaining multiple academic accolades such as being on the Dean’s List (Academic) in both JC1 and JC2 and receiving the MOE Edusave Merit Award in 2018. In addition she also won the Lee Kuan Yew Award for Mathematics & Science which only served to affirm her exceptional aptitude in the STEM fields. Her passion and aptitude in Economics, in particular, also saw her taking up the subject at a Higher 3 level. As a humble and helpful individual, Megan she often tutored her schoolmates during Physics lectures and various other instances outside curriculum time. She also contributed her knowledge from H3 Economics by initiating and giving a talk to her juniors on what Game Theory is about. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

Quite satisfied. Confidence helped me achieve these results. Never sell yourself short and say that you don’t think that you’ll be able to achieve good grades, that will make you crumble from the stress and give up. Always believe in growth and that you have not reached your fullest potential yet.  A group of good friends who can drive each other to achieve even more also helped me achieve these results. For example, my friends in Dance and I reminded each other that even though it might be tough we had others who were in it with us as well. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

Interesting with a lot of new and different experiences. My Dance friends, classmates and secondary school friends who pushed each other on, be it self-directed practice outside of CCA times or library meetups outside of school. I’m grateful to be a part of Eunite and Orientation as an OGL, which gave me a chance to know and help my juniors, have fun in school and be a part of something bigger than myself.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Have a good relationship with your classmates/teachers so it will be easier and more comfortable for you to ask for help if you ever need it. Next, always try to help others. I felt that helping others was a great way to sieve out what I did not understand. 

Don’t give up on your hobbies - find stuff to relieve stress. Find enjoyment in whatever you do - that will keep you going whenever things get tough (e.g. CCA, finding what you like about certain subjects or topics you’re good at). Lastly, celebrate successes, no matter how small. That will give you confidence and strength to carry on. 

Alastair Ang

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Alastair Ang (18-U5) is a student with a strong drive in achieving his academic goals. Amidst his commitments in the Bicultural Studies Programme, Alastair took up the challenge of studying H3 Economics. He also participated as a student delegate of Spain in a Model United Nations where he sharpened his insights surrounding geopolitical and historical issues. Beyond academic rigour, Alastair also displayed vigour as an avid member of the Outdoor Adventure Club (ODAC), having participated actively in various expeditions and competitions such as the Spartan Race and the National Vertical Marathon. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

It may not be what I really wanted but I trust that I’ve done the best I could in the process of preparing for it. While it was far from perfect, I think I cannot be solely defined by the grades I have attained. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities to learn from my classmates and friends I’ve met along the way. My teachers were equally crucial to the development of both my character and my academic achievements. With hard work, guidance and inspiration, I was able to attain the results today.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My journey in Eunoia is characterised by growth. My greatest inspiration since is Mr David Hoe, who with a difficult beginning and childhood, has now become a beacon of hope for many of his students. While Mr David no longer teaches, he continues to nurture teens with all his heart and a genuine hope to improve the world in his ways. He summarised my JC journey in two simple lines, that growing old is natural, but growing up is intentional. This has characterised my motivation and journey in Eunoia.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

It is important to not give up at any single stage in your life. Sometimes, effort will not equate to results, and many would be upset because of this imbalance. They would feel unfair, aggrieved, disappointed. But I think, honestly speaking, the fact that you have put in effort spells more about yourself than your grades. If your grades are the only thing that defines you, you are the failure in life, only because you have failed to see things past a piece of examination paper.

Isabelle Bridget Tan

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST.NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Isabelle Bridget Tan (18-E2) has a natural academic and analytical ability, which saw her represent the college at the Singapore Chemistry Olympiad where she won a merit award. For her outstanding academic performance, she was also placed on the Dean’s List (Academic) in 2018, and received the MOE Edusave Merit Award as well as the Good Progress Award in the same year. In spite of her excellent academic record, Isabelle was a modest and unassuming Student Councillor who was involved in the planning of numerous college events such as Euphoria and Orientation. She was also an active member in the planning committee for the Student Council VIA project, leading her peers in developing a project to engage young children.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY TO THE A-LEVELS HERE IN EUNOIA?

I am overwhelmingly relieved. Now that I know my results, I have a better idea of the next step to take. I cannot explain how important the support of my teachers, friends and family was in helping me through this journey. Their words of encouragement or even just knowing that they were rooting for me, was enough to keep me going. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

Lots of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, each experience was a learning opportunity. I think each failure has made me stronger and better able to cope with life. This was only possible because of my friends (including teachers) who, despite the difficult 2 years of JC, made my experience the most wholesome it could be.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Everyone has 24 hours a day, like how all players start off with the same amount of money at the beginning of a Monopoly game. Invest your time wisely in the things that matter, like spending quality time with friends and family, or having sufficient sleep. And give your all in whatever you do so that your experiences will be fulfilling. There will inevitably be lows (like getting a ‘go to jail’ card). In these times, be there for one another to keep each other going. 

Most importantly, please do not underestimate the importance of sleep! Forgoing some hours of late night studying in order to have sufficient sleep is more worthwhile than you think. Hang in there and all the best!

Shen Bowen Bruce (18-A4) was the Head of Training and the Head of the Video module for EJC Media. Dedicated and passionate about his craft, he was one of the main members behind college publicity videos and capturing the college's vibrant student life on video. Bruce was no less dedicated in his studies, steadfastly pushing himself in a difficult period leading up to the A-Level Examination.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I frankly do not feel my results represent what I can achieve at my full potential, but given the circumstances and everything that happened the last 2 years, I am at peace with it. I was still able to improve by 20 rank points from Prelims to A-Levels, and that was a result of me finally being able to pick myself up from everything that life had thrown at me, standing back up and carrying on.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

I would describe it as messy, gruelling, painful, but worthwhile and absolutely beautiful. Some may say that JC is all about friends, and they are right. The friendships that I have formed with my teachers, my batchmates and my juniors were what kept me going even when times were really rough. The sole belief that someone was there for me when I needed them was the fuel I needed to keep myself strong against all odds. The experiences and the times we have shared are some things I would always cherish in my life.

AS A PIONEERING EUNOIAN, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Have faith. Never give in to the voices in your head that keep telling you to quit. At times, life may throw things at you, but whatever it is, always remember that you are exactly where you need to be. Stay in the present. Do not dwell on the past or fixate your eyes on the future. Live in the present, do things a step at a time, and we will all get there somehow, to a much more beautiful place, as a better version of ourselves.

Chua Yan Peng

ALUMNA OF FUHUA SECONDARY SCHOOL

Chua Yan Peng (18-I4) was an innately curious and driven learner, going out of her comfort zone to participate in the Poet-in-Resident Programme and the Middle East Summit in 2018, take up a backstage role for the college's inaugural Literature Festival and served as the Physics subject representative for her class. As Head of Publicity for the Service Learning Club, she organised and proactively contributed to many of the club's activities for the elderly and the Ulu Pandan community. She was inspired enough by one of the reading programmes to continue volunteering at a reading programme to spread the joy of learning and reading to children. In her academic studies, Yan Peng demonstrated the resilience that saw her move from the Normal to Express stream at her secondary school to perform extraordinarily in all subjects she offered at the A-Level Examination.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I feel really surprised because I wasn't expecting the results that I got. I was hoping that my results would not be as bad as what I got for prelims and I was not confident in my abilities. The biggest reason as to why I achieved my results will have to be the constant support my teachers and friends gave me when I was feeling terrible about my demoralising past results.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My journey in Eunoia is one that was filled with ups and downs (in a good way). I struggled a lot academically, especially in GP and Literature since my English isn’t really strong, but my teachers, Mr Marc Kenji Lim, Mr Edson Ng, Mr Perrin, never gave up on me and encouraged me to work hard and do better. Furthermore, my friends were always there for me whenever I felt down and provided me with moral support, which kept me going on this tough journey. I am so thankful for the opportunities that the school gave me to help me grow holistically as a Eunoian.

AS A PIONEERING EUNOIAN, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Practise consistently! Miracles do not happen. Do not beat yourself up over your results and fail to do anything to change them. When we are willing to seek help from our teachers and friends, we will know how and where to improve so as to make a change. Do not give up on yourself because nothing is impossible. There is always room for improvement!

Deborah Lee

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Deborah Lee (18-A2) was a nominee for The Straits Times Young Athlete of the Year Award for 2019. The goalkeeper of the college's championship-winning Hockey (Girls) team, she achieved a clean sheet throughout the National School Games 'A' Division season. In addition, she received the National Schools Colours Award for sports excellence and was selected for the 2019 U19 Hockey National Junior League Girls Division 1 team. Her many feats are all the more remarkable because of an injury she sustained before the National School Games. During this period of time, she contributed much as the quarter mistress of the Hockey team, an Orientation Group Leader (OGL) and assisted in the organisation of the college's Road Run. Despite her heavy co-curricular involvement, Deborah managed her academic work well and was placed on the Dean's List for academic excellence.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I feel satisfied. Of course, there are many people and factors involved. But most importantly, it’s the support from friends, family and teachers. The teachers have really put in a lot of effort in giving us additional materials and even putting aside time to help us clarify our concepts. Without their sacrifice and dedication, all of this would not be possible.

I always thought that isolating myself will be the most effective study method, but I realised that it is important to interact and study with your friends as they provided me with the driving force and encouragement.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

A tough but fulfilling journey. Everyone who was a part of it like friends (both new and old), teachers, teammates. They have provided me with so much support and advice that shaped me into the person that I am today. Although there were many trials and challenges during these two years it was these people who made the journey less painful as we bonded through the challenges and forged unforgettable memories (be it studying for exams or training for upcoming competitions). I really treasure all of them.

AS A PIONEERING EUNOIAN, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Always know that you are not alone in these 2 years. You might be taking papers alone, but behind the scenes, on your preparation journey, there are many others who are here for you.

Press on. If you do not see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is not the end. Believe in yourself and go all the way, things will turn out for your own good.

Enjoy every moment of your JC life!

David Ng

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Michael Ng

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

David Ng (18-I5) and Michael Ng (18-O3) are brothers who displayed grit and dedication in all they sought to achieve during their two years in Eunoia. Both were placed on the Dean's List (Academic) in 2018 and 2019 and took up H3 Chemistry despite the heavy demands of their co-curricular participation. As captains of the student-initiated Golf CCA, they achieved a highly commendable 4th place in the 2019 competition. Both were key members of the boys' Floorball team, with David scoring the winning goal to clinch the 'A' Division championship. Through their successes, they were anchored by a belief in service and community: they initiated and coordinated a peer tutoring programme for their batchmates and served as Orientation Group Leaders; Michael was also a project leader for a community programme on reading and healthy living for children aged 5 to 7 years.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

David: When I got my results, I felt relieved and happy, but also felt a little regret about H3 Chem, which I could’ve done better for. However, upon further reflection, I understand that rather than being overly critical and frustrated at the things that didn't go my way, I should be grateful for all I have done well. I realised that I have a lot to be happy about, and began to treasure my results for what they are. During our preparation for A-Levels, my brother and I tried to maintain a healthy work-life balance, to avoid the dreaded "burnout" associated with non-stop studying. Playing all kinds of sports regularly and meeting up with old friends helped us escape from the stress and burden of the looming examinations. I also firmly believe in the importance of working smart, as opposed to studying indiscriminately. To me, it’s more important to possess strong foundations than to drill past year questions. Each question is mostly unique, and having a good grasp of each subject's core concepts helps immensely in tackling all types of questions. More than anything, as much as these are my results as an individual, they were a direct consequence of the boundless support from my family, the inspirational guidance of my teachers, and the presence of my friends and schoolmates, in the good times and the bad, throughout the A-Level period. Without their presence, I would never be where I am now.

Michael: As results release day drew near, nothing could stop the worst-case scenarios and what-ifs that flooded my mind. When I got back my results, all that anxiety was replaced by a sense of relief and joy. I had done well and met the expectations I set for myself. Despite missing out on a distinction for H3 Chemistry, I knew that I had already given it my all and had nothing to complain about. I feel glad and content with my results. Even more importantly, I felt immensely grateful for the many people that helped me along the way: dedicated and sincere teachers, a supportive and understanding family, and loyal friends with whom I could destress. Strange as it may sound, having a good work-life balance — stopping work and taking time off to rest - was one of my strategies in preparing for the A-Levels. Resting and enjoying life helped me take my mind off the daunting challenge ahead. Maintaining this balance gave me the clarity of mind to work efficiently and not burn out. Another crucial step in achieving my desired results was having a strong understanding of the fundamentals of each subject. Having a deeper understanding works wonders when in the final phases of preparation.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

Michael: My two years in Eunoia were filled with highs and lows — a collage of memories that collectively shaped an exciting journey. As a personal mission, I strived to be the best version of myself and make the most of my journey in Eunoia. Even though the two years passed by in the blink of an eye, I will never forget the amazing moments that I had. Along the journey, having a brother who I could pursue our extra-curricular passions with was crucial. My friends also had a huge role to play in helping me to continue strong. I found meaning in the simple things around me, and the moments of fun that happen inside and outside of the school curriculum. I value the meaning of friendship and camaraderie, from my peers, juniors, family and teachers. Without any of them along my journey, I would never have had as rich and meaningful an experience.

David: My two years in Eunoia were the most fulfilling years of my life. Although they were fleeting and short-lived, they provided so many intense and incredible experiences, all of which I hold dear to my heart. In my mind, perhaps the people who stand out the most are my fellow floorballers. When I decided in JC1 to pick up a new sport, surrounded by unfamiliar faces, I searched for a team. What I found was a family. Through thick and thin, we stayed together, and when the odds were stacked against us, we only banded together even more. I’m proud to have been a part of such an amazing team and family. Being an OGL and CGL at Orientation 2019 brought so much joy to my JC life as well! Being a part of something greater than myself was so meaningful to me. In the months of preparation and the actual experience itself, I realised how much I loved bringing joy to others. To OG12 and 19-I1, it was a privilege to be a part of your J1 life, and thank you all for bringing so much meaning to my 2019. Last but not least, I’m thankful for my class, 18-I5, for being an integral part of my journey. We faced all the struggles of JC together and came out on top, and I feel so heartened to see our growth over the last 2 years. Special thanks to all my tutors, and all those who’ve guided me along the way in this special journey!

AS A PIONEERING EUNOIAN, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

David: Hey juniors! These 2 years are going to pass by in the blink of an eye, so treasure every single moment you have! With this in mind, here are some things I’ve learnt and would like to share with y’all. One of them is to always remember to work hard, and play hard as well! Don’t forget to live, and don’t forsake friendships just to chase a sheet of paper with letters on it. Although the A-Levels are the final destination, JC is about so much more than just that. To the JC1s: Dare to dream, and dare to soar. Dare to take on the challenge, and you will come out on top. Venture beyond your comfort zone, and you’ll have an unforgettable JC experience! Hope y’all enjoy your time in EJ and forge long-lasting friendships! To the JC2s, this year is going to be a wild ride. Support each other through the tough times, and share in the joys of fellowship and friendship! Remember that no matter where you are, or how you’re doing, the marathon won’t be won early in the race. Pace yourselves, and never ever tell yourself that it’s too late, or that you can’t do it. Because you can. Have faith and believe, it’ll all be over before you know it!

Michael: I strongly believe that the most important thing is to trust the process and keep working hard. Every action, study session and practice goes a long way in helping someone achieve their desired grades. At the same time, you must remember to not burn out, and have a healthy work-life balance. No matter what, it’s important to keep the faith as you brave the storms. Enjoy the highs, but endure the lows, and always remember that it’s progress – not perfection, that matters most. Have courage and pursue your passions, because the two years will pass by in a flash. No matter how others around you are faring, you are ultimately your own master.

Gisele Yeo

ALUMNA OF YUAN CHING SECONDARY SCHOOL

Gisele Yeo (18-I1) used her outstanding dance talents to make invaluable contributions to the dynamism and vibrancy of college life. She joined the EJC Orientation Organising Committee as Head of Cheers and Dance, playing a key role in developing new college mass dances for the cohort as well as the five houses. Stronger pride in the houses was developed through these dances, and they continue to be an important feature of inducting new Eunoians into college life. Gisele was also a highly-regarded and well-loved Dance Captain, a regular performer at college events and took charge of Cheers and Dance for her House.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I am happy with my results overall, especially as I scored better than I had expected in some subjects. I believe in consistency and hard work and tried my best at each of the assessments over the last two years. I made sure to revise and prepare well, even for seemingly minor timed assignments. This meant I did not have to spend as much time going through the same topic again at the major year-end exams. I also consistently did my homework and I felt I was falling behind, I arranged consultations with my teachers as soon as possible to clarify any doubts.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

At the start of JC1, I found it very hard to cope with the stress. However, my time in EJC just got better and better as the days passed. This is due to my amazing friends, CCA, class and most importantly, the teachers. Every teacher in EJC made sure that their lessons were well-planned, and always made sure that their students are on track.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Sometimes, things may not go your way. What matters is that no matter how tough the road ahead is, facing it with the right attitude and mindset will help you achieve your goals. Do not give up!  My grades back in JC1 were certainly dismal, maybe you may feel the same way. Nonetheless, you should never allow that to hold you back. Instead, use it as motivation to push forward, improve yourself and constantly strive for the best!

Elizabeth Teo

ALUMNA OF SINGAPORE CHINESE GIRLS' SCHOOL

Elizabeth Teo (18-U2) was an outstanding student in the classroom and who will also be remembered for her immense contributions to the dynamism that characterises Eunoia . As House Captain of Uzuri, she helped shape college culture through planning and executing house-related events such as Spartan Race, Inter-House Games and Road Run. During the College Opening in 2018, Elizabeth led her House Committee to design a house float that best embodied their House value of family. During Orientation 2019, she helped create House collaterals and mascots and planned House-related activities to create a strong House identity the JC1s could be inducted into. Elizabeth also served the college as a Student Councillor and planned large scale activities such as the House Forum, a college-wide feedback forum between the student population and the school leaders.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

Happy and thankful. The A-Level journey has been a long one, but the support of my family, friends and teachers definitely helped me through this journey. I am so grateful for extremely supportive peers, being blessed with amazing classmates and the very conducive study environment in school. The vast resources available online from our teachers and the study groups formed helped me immensely.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

In one word, fulfilling. EJC provided vast opportunities for me to develop myself as a person, from planning events and working with the house committee to volunteering in Chiang Mai. This journey would not have been possible without the support of my peers and teachers. I’m especially thankful to my civics tutor Mr Rodrigues and my life coach Mr Ganison!

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

In everything you do, try your best! Embrace every learning opportunity and don’t forget to show your appreciation to those around you.

Sebastian Koo

ALUMNUS OF ST GABRIEL'S SECONDARY SCHOOL

Sebastian Koo Yong Jun (18-U2) was a member of the EJC Media Club and his efforts meant major college events proceeded smoothly and were memorable. As the Head of the Audio-Visual (AV) module within the Media Club, Sebastian worked meticulously behind the scenes to ensure that the microphones and sound systems were in good working order. He served as the Media AV Support-in-Charge for key college events like the National Day and Teachers’ Day Celebrations, Orientation and the College Day Concert. Adapting carefully to the different logistical demands and technical support of each event, Sebastian and his team ensured Eunoians enjoyed each of these defining college experiences. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

My results met my expectations, so I am very pleased. Hard work and never giving up helped me achieve these.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

The 2 years I spent in EJC were filled with highs and lows. My friends, and my CCA, EJ Media, made it more meaningful for me.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

We are often told to strive for ‘work-life balance’, but it is important to accept this balance looks different at various points in the year. There will be times when you will need to put in more effort into studying. There will be times where you feel the need to spend more time on other projects or even for yourself and the people around you. It is okay to feel that way. It is also okay to feel lost, because life is all about not knowing anything initially, and seeking growth by learning from those around us. Failure is but a learning opportunity, and success is failure to fail.

Goh Pei Swhen

ALUMNA OF BUKIT BATOK SECONDARY SCHOOL

Goh Pei Swhen (18-U2) served as a photographer for the Media Club, covering significant milestones in the college such as the College Orientation in 2019, National School Games ‘A’ Division competitions and award ceremonies. Her photojournalism allowed Eunoians who were not present at competitions to vicariously participate, support their peers and feel a sense of pride in the achievements and efforts of their peers. She helped Eunoians cherish the glories they defined for themselves.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

I am very pleased with my results because I managed to have some fun every day despite the hectic JC life and did not neglect my mental and physical well-being even in the lead-up to exams. I think what helped me achieve my results was hard work and the teachers who never gave up on me even though I performed poorly on exams and tests. It also helped that I made sure to stay healthy and have sufficient rest. My friends also always had my back and readily lent me a helping hand also played an invaluable role in my results.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

I enjoyed school more in JC2 when I got more involved in college activities, such as serving as an OGL in Orientation. My family, my classmates, CCA mates, CCA teachers, Mr Rodrigues, Ms Lim Suan Chu, the friends I made in Orientation and my precious juniors all made the journey much more meaningful.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

We cannot escape the reality of needing to study hard in JC. It is important that you do not lag behind in your tutorials and clarify any doubts you have as soon as possible. Do not be too stressed about internal examinations; JC life is hectic and everyone learns at their own pace. Focus on the end goal that is the A-Level exams. Next, take some time to create memories in your JC life. There is more to life than just studying and grades. Please do create lots of these wonderful memories!

Daniel Lim

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Lim Jee Myang Daniel (18-I4) exemplified beautiful thinking and goodwill to all in the way he channeled his innate curiosity to create opportunities for Eunoians to pursue their passions. He was Head of Special Projects in the EJC Visual Arts Club, a newly-minted CCA in 2018, and played an instrumental role in shaping the Club’s direction and identity. He was also the President of Makerspace, a place of innovation and creativity for students to work on a project of their choice. During the college Unconference Day 2018, Daniel organised an Escape Room that taught participants code-breaking as they worked through challenges. He also helped put EJC on the national radar when he led his team to first place at the SUTD Electric Vehicle Design Challenge 2019, a two-day event widely covered in the mainstream media. 

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

My results were a welcome surprise. I managed to improve significantly from my preliminary exams, and it is thanks in no small part to the support I received from my friends, teachers and family. I still remember my friends and I studying together and calling our Physics teacher to clarify our doubts. While we may have been interrupting his plans, he did not hesitate to field our queries. My peers kept me energised when we studied, and I don’t think I would have been able to keep my morale up through the entire journey without them.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My time in EJC has been the best two years of my schooling life so far. It was two years of slowly pushing my boundaries and showcasing what I am capable of achieving. From taking up a leadership role in a brand new CCA (the Visual Arts Club) to winning the Electric Vehicle Challenge and making it on the news, I have managed to go beyond what I once thought I could achieve. However, what really made the journey worth it was the people in EJC. Late-night Skype calls with my fellow CCA leaders and long hours in the Makerspace with my juniors are memories I hold on to. We got through times of hardship only because of our collective hard work. The strongest bonds are forged in fire, and our time spent together has left me with friendships that I wouldn’t trade for the world.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Be bold! Dare to do things that you are even a little interested in. For every success that I experienced, I met with two or more failures. It is important to push past failures and not let them affect you too much. Achievement will come if you try. So keep trying, and don't be discouraged. Keep fighting on!

Kimmie Tan

ALUMNA OF SINGAPORE CHINESE GIRLS' SCHOOL

Tan Yi Juan Kimmie (18-E3) exemplified all-round excellence and was a mainstay on the Dean's List (Academic) as well as the Dean’s List (Character and Service). As Vice-Captain for Eder House, she was instrumental in leading house segments during events like Road Run and College Day. Her careful planning and infectious enthusiasm played a valuable role in building house spirit and fostering bonding between seniors, juniors and teachers and helped Eunoians identify more strongly with the college. Kimmie was also a member of EJC Drama who attained a Distinction in a starring role at the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation in 2018.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR RESULTS AND WHAT HELPED YOU ACHIEVE THEM?

It still feels a bit surreal having just received my results half an hour ago. I am grateful to everyone who has been a part of my JC journey: my teachers, my family and my classmates who supported me tirelessly. My teachers who have truly been the greatest pillar of support, making lessons enjoyable and always supporting us even it meant losing their lunch break so we could have a consultation. I am also immensely lucky to have had such a loving and bonded class where we could strive together and help each other reach our fullest potential. Juggling school work with the duties that came with my leadership positions was difficult, and what helped me maintain balance in my life was proper prioritisation and taking breaks for as long as I needed in order to get back into a proper headspace to continue to do my best. Knowing what to do at the right time was something that helped make my JC life easier.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My time in Eunoia was full of ups and downs and there were many tears as well as much laughter. It has been memorable and an experience of a lifetime because of the people in school.  My very vibrant class was made up of vastly different individuals who became one big family because we accepted one another as we were and gave each other so much love and support. I am immensely thankful for everything they have done for me and went through with me. EJC has so many teachers that truly teach from the heart and are always trying to be innovative and improve so as to better help students understand. The care and effort they put into their work is truly admirable and made this tumultuous JC journey more smooth-sailing and manageable. Finally, my House and CCA have provided me with a sense of belonging and giving me the best memories through all the events. All these experiences have truly helped me to learn more about myself and the people around me so as to grow into the person I am today and I am grateful to EJC for giving me such good memories to walk away with.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

As much as the truth is harsh, this journey will not be easy and you cannot expect it to be easy. Academically, it will be gruelling and stressful. It is perfectly normal if you feel burned out at times. Take all the time you need to rest, recharge and start again. Your well-being is more important than the grades that appear on a piece of paper. Apart from all the academics in JC, don’t forget to truly enjoy yourself. JC is the best time to discover your strengths and interests. Find the friends in whom you can find solace and support as you go through this tumultuous period together. Be true to yourself and listen to your own needs. Take good care of yourself and remember that you are stronger than you think you are. You will be able to get through this and conquer everything else in life. All the best!

The Class of 2019
Light the Way

VOLUME ONE

The Class of 2019 have come to define the college's glories and made history for themselves.

Rebekah Seow

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Rebekah Seow (18-A1) exemplified excellence in her academic, leadership and co-curricular pursuits and was an inspiration to her peers. Her many achievements and contributions included her role as the well-respected President of the 2nd Student Council, being a mainstay on the Dean’s List, and serving as a regular volunteer letter-writer at Meet-the-People Sessions at Kebun Baru. She led the organising committee for the EJC Orientation in 2019 and also was instrumental in crafting the Student Council Constitution, leaving a legacy for her juniors and subsequent batches of Eunoians.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECEIVING YOUR RESULTS LATER TODAY?

Honestly, I feel quite calm today as I have done my best to prepare for the A-level exams. After speaking to many seniors and adults, I also know that the exams are just a small part of life and regardless of my results, it is still up to me to define my future.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

There were certainly some challenging periods — I still remember the daily routine of “eat, study, eat, study, eat, study, sleep”, then repeat! However, it was made much easier by my friends and teachers, who journeyed alongside me and kept me motivated. I constantly made the effort to see purpose in the revision and practice I did in order to remain positive.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

The lead up to the A-level exam can be incredibly draining and relying on your friends for support and supporting them can make a big difference. When I found it painful to get out of bed and study each morning, talking to friends and studying with them kept me going, as did the knowledge we were all going through the same struggle together.

Ong Chong Yu

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Ong Chong Yu (18-A1) was a tenacious and compassionate Deputy President of the 2nd Student Council. He played an instrumental role in college life, emceeing the college’s Chinese New Year celebrations, publicising the Hair for Hope campaign and organising the Student Council Election. Effectively bilingual, he also won the Prime Ministers’ Book Prize in 2018 and was a Bicultural Studies Programme Scholar. Chong Yu contributed immensely not only to the college but to the wider community as well, serving as a long-term volunteer at Beyond Social Services, and was a deserving recipient of the MOE Edusave Character Award. In October 2019, Chong Yu received the distinguished Harvard Prize Book for his excellence in scholarship, character and holistic achievements.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECEIVING YOUR RESULTS LATER TODAY?

While I’m nervous, I’m really excited to meet my friends and teachers in our new campus because it’s been a long time since we’ve gathered together as a batch and it feels great to be back home. I’ve been telling myself to be calm and to have confidence that I will figure things out after today, because this is just a pit stop in the marathon of life. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

It definitely wasn’t easy and there were many moments when I felt dejected, when I felt no sense of purpose and when I lost the motivation to keep studying. I am really thankful that the school, deans, teachers and friends in EJC were so encouraging, motivating, inspiring. The efforts we made to spur each other on, like saying “press on!” when we met along the corridor or exchanging high fives and hugs made this stressful journey much brighter, more heartwarming and definitely more unforgettable.

WHAT ADVICE OR ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR JUNIORS?

Work with your tutors to refine your study strategies — I did not know how to summarise my notes efficiently which meant studying took me a lot of time and effort, and this drained my motivation to study. Once I got better at consolidating my learning, I had the momentum to keep going. Taking short breaks and pacing yourself is also a useful strategy. I got tired and burned out at times because studying was definitely less exciting than Council activities. Taking regular short breaks to reward myself and helped me feel less overwhelmed. I also tried to challenge myself to extend my studying time between each break and build discipline by turning off my phone while studying. Talking to friends, teachers and studying with them also boosted my motivation and spurred me on when I wanted to give up.

Sanchana Gnanasekaran

ALUMNA OF SINGAPORE CHINESE GIRLS' SCHOOL

Sanchana Gnanasekaran (18-O4) was an outstanding student and Deputy President of the 2nd Student Council. In the classroom and in the Student Council, she was able to elicit the view of a diverse range of individuals and reassure them that their views were valuable and had been heard, As the overall person-in-charge for high-profile college events such as the Orientation programme for the Joint Integrated Programme students (Eunite) in 2019 and the Student Council Investiture in 2018, Sanchana effectively communicated and managed the perspectives of the many different stakeholders with maturity, decisiveness and sensitivity. She also very quickly shaped up as a unifying and inspiring figurehead who could motivate everyone involved to do their very best for the events.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECEIVING YOUR RESULTS LATER TODAY?

I’m feeling a lot less nervous than I thought I’d be today — I came across a quote the other day that spoke to me and helped me stay calm. “Disappointment reveals investment. What a beautiful thing to care, even if you were hoping for a different outcome. Celebrate that always.” And so regardless of what happens, I know that I will be okay and have it within me to make things work out in the end. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

My journey to the A-levels was tough — there were highs and there were many lows and there were points where I wanted to give up but the support of everyone kept me going. Through it all, though, I felt a lot of love and support from my peers who were going through the same thing and this made the journey so much better, more meaningful and one I will always remember.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACED? HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO OVERCOME THEM?

I often felt that I was not performing up to expectations and having to keep going was difficult. However, I realised that keeping a positive outlook and focusing on your progress rather than how far away you were from your goals helped immensely. I always reminded myself that at the end of the day, the journey would be worth it.

Tan Wen Xin

ALUMNA OF CHIJ ST NICHOLAS GIRLS' SCHOOL

Tan Wen Xin (18-I1) was the Deputy Head of the Communications committee in the Student Council and stood out as a nurturing and empowering mentor. The teams she led benefited from her meticulous planning, clear guidelines and meaningful feedback and her efforts contributed to the Student Council strengthening its social media presence in order to better reach out to Eunoians. Wen Xin’s alma mater also benefited from her leadership as she made time amidst to serve as a Cadet Inspector with the National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC), mentoring cadets at CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECEIVING YOUR RESULTS LATER TODAY?

While I was nervous this week, much like many of my friends, I think I have reached a zen state of mind. I know that no matter the results all of us will ultimately create meaningful lives for ourselves and that our A-Level grades do not define us.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

During our Eunoia GO trip to Sri Lanka, Mr Barry Chia once said that the A-Level examination is akin to that of a journey up Adams’ Peak, the mountain we were conquering. Although it is a one-man journey, we can choose to do it with friends and encourage each other along the way. I feel that this analogy aptly described my journey, as while it was a roller coaster of highs and lows, I am proud to call EJC my family, as even during the bleakest of times, my friends, teachers, family and alma mater have been immensely supportive and encouraging. Their thoughtfulness and generosity made this challenging journey a very memorable one indeed.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACED? HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO OVERCOME THEM?

I think my toughest challenge was balancing my Council commitments with my academic work at the start of JC2.  With the support of my friends who helped to collect homework for me, as well as my subject teachers who were very patient when giving consultations, catching up with the class was a lot easier. I am grateful for the support I received from my EJC family.

Yeo Shin Loong

ALUMNUS OF CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Yeo Shin Loong (18-A1) was an instrumental leader in the Eunoia community, serving as an outstanding Captain of Akila House and a Student Councillor even as he pursued academic excellence as an MOE Bicultural Studies Programme Scholar. A constant on both the Dean’s List (Academic) and Dean's List (Character & Service) for his courage and integrity, Shin Loong was a noticeable presence during House events, rallying his peers with an infectious enthusiasm. He not only helped forge a strong house spirit within Akila, his efforts also helped strengthen the Eunoia identity amongst the Class of 2019.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECEIVING YOUR RESULTS LATER TODAY?

I feel elated to visit our new home and catch up with my schoolmates and teachers. I also appreciate the opportunity to express my gratitude to my schoolmates and teachers that have supported me throughout this journey. Throughout the past week, there was a lot of anxiety, excitement and anticipation for results day but I held onto one belief - regardless of the results I receive, they will not define my future. The future is in our hands and the A-levels are but only a small milestone towards the greater end goals in life.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY IN EUNOIA AND WHAT MADE IT MEANINGFUL?

There were countless sleepless nights and self-initiated consultations with my tutors. The journey to A-levels not only demanded a great deal of stamina and perseverance but it was also a period of time that I learned how to strike a balance between taking sufficient breaks and studying. There were also many ‘eureka’ and ‘a-ha’ moments and disappointments along the way but in retrospect, these ups and downs were a crucial aspect of a rewarding Eunoia experience.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACED? HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO OVERCOME THEM?

Having taken very content-heavy subjects, I found it challenging to digest all the lecture notes and tutorials. What eventually worked out for me was learning how to study smart and having a proper study routine: I learned that mindmaps and flashcards helped me internalise and thoughtfully apply what I learned and I also adhered to an exercise routine that allowed me to continue staying fit throughout my study sessions.

Our Glories We Define – 2019 A-Level Results

Our Glories We Define

2019 A-LEVEL RESULTS

This is Eunoia Shining

Eunoia Junior College congratulates our class of 2019 for their outstanding achievement at the 2019 GCE A-Level Examination. Coming together from 73 different secondary schools, they built on the legacy set by the first class, with their contributions and achievements making the Eunoia identity shine.

The college is proud of all 610 Eunoians who sat the 2019 GCE A-Level Examination. 1 in 3 Eunoians attained at least 3 H2 distinctions, with 3 in 10 scoring 5 distinctions or more, 100 Eunoians scoring 6 distinctions or more and 5 Eunoians achieving a total of 8 distinctions. 4 in 10 students achieved a distinction in their H3 subjects. The cohort achieved a median University Admission Score  of 83 rank points, with 69 students scoring 90 rank points, 118 students attaining 89 rank points or more and 4 in 10 students garnering at least 85 rank points.

Our combined total of 73 scholars from the Bicultural Studies Programme (Chinese), Humanities Scholarship Programme and Music Elective Programme, our MOE Pre-University Scholars, international scholars, book prize and scholarship recipients continued the college’s tradition of excellence with their stellar results. Our Eunoians have also received close to a hundred conditional offers from institutions including the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford and King's College London, and provisional offers of scholarships such as the Public Service Commission scholarship. The college anticipates more good news from our Eunoians in the coming months.

Lighting the Way

Above and beyond their lustrous academic results, each Eunoian in the Class of 2019 has excelled holistically as a Youth with Purpose, Thinker with Heart, Leader with Courage. Within a few months of intensive practice, our performing arts CCAs clinched the Certificate of Distinction at the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation 2019 in the Chinese Orchestra, Choir and Symphonic Band categories and the Certificate of Accomplishment in the Dance category. This was followed by another outstanding showing in Drama at the SYF Arts Presentation in 2018. Our student-athletes made history, emerging champions in the ‘A’ Division Hockey (Girls) and Floorball (Boys) Championships in 2019. Eunoia athletes were also recognised for outstanding individual performances in Golf, Shooting and Wushu at the ‘A’ Division Championships. In various academic competitions and olympiads, our Eunoians built on the legacy of their seniors, achieving commendable results. Most importantly, our Class of 2019 contributed a glorious chapter of the Eunoia story; their historic achievements light the way for future generations of Eunoians to draw inspiration from and build on.

Coming Full Circle

Mr Ganison Rajamohan, the Dean of our 2019 JC2 cohort, shared his treasured memories and hopes: ‘The Class of 2019 has had a remarkable journey over the last 2 years, one that has culminated in success at the A-Level examination. We will always remember this cohort as one which added colour, vibrancy and dynamism to a young college. They have stamped their mark for future batches to emulate and build on. It has been my privilege to witness and be part of their growth story. I would like to congratulate them for their efforts and trust they will find fulfillment in the paths that lie ahead of them.’

Mrs Wong-Cheang Mei Heng, Principal, added, ‘We are proud of our Eunoians’ achievements and all-rounded development. The A-Level result is but one step in their lifelong learning journeys and their holistic growth is shown in the college culture they helped define, the college spirit they have fostered, the friendships they have built, and the cognitive sharpness they have developed. Even as we celebrate their success at the A-levels, they are ultimately not defined by their grades and certificates. We treasure the teachable hearts the Class of 2019 has displayed, the bold explorations they embarked on, and the different ways in which they have lit the way for their juniors.’

As one Eunoia, we celebrate the holistic achievements, talent and contributions of the Class of 2019. The college would like to extend its deepest gratitude to our teachers, non-teaching staff, parents, our College Advisory Committee, Joint Integrated Programme partner schools and all who have helped Eunoia define its glories. To the Class of 2019, we look forward to seeing you grow and shine ever more brightly as Eunoians evermore.
