Class of 2021 Shining On – 2021 A-Level Results

Shining On

2021 A-LEVEL RESULTS

Eunoia Junior College congratulates our class of 2021 for their excellent achievement at the 2021 GCE A-Level Examination. The first cohort to start their journey in our Bishan campus, the class of 2021 came together from diverse backgrounds to thrive amidst the testing circumstances in 2020 and changing conditions in 2021.

The college is proud of all 605 Eunoians who sat the 2021 GCE A-Level Examination. The cohort achieved a median University Admission Score (UAS) of 84 rank points and a mean UAS of 82.4 rank points. About 5 in 10 students garnered 85 rank points or more. 4 in 10 Eunoians scored at least 3 H2 distinctions, with 2 in 10 Eunoians attaining 6 distinctions or more. 4 in 10 Eunoians achieved a distinction in their H3 subjects.

2021 Results

Principal of Eunoia Junior College, Mr Andrew Tan said, 'While I have not had a privilege to know you as a cohort, I feel I know you through the imprints you have left behind in your juniors – and what an amazing imprint that is! I look forward to getting to know you through our alumni activities in the days, weeks and years ahead. Know that your true accomplishments are ahead of you, and may Beautiful Thinking, Goodwill to All last a lifetime within you and the meaningful paths you will take from this point forward.'

Mr Ganison Rajamohan, Dean of the Class of 2021, added, 'Congratulations on yet another milestone in your life journey. You made history in 2020 as the first cohort of Eunoians to be matriculated in our Bishan Campus. The excitement and energy which began on that day continued to flow in the two years you grew with us in Eunoia. I wish that you will cherish the friendships fostered and the memories made in your hearts for a long time. As you collect your A-Level results, your teachers and I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. Your grades do not define you. Instead it will be experiences you gain in the coming years which will refine you. Stay positive in your life journey, show gratitude towards those who stood by you and remember to be part of a larger community by paying it forward. I wish you Eunoia and EJ will always be your home. All the best.'

The growth and achievements of our Eunoians would not be possible without the dedication and support of teachers, non-teaching staff, parents, College Advisory Committee and Joint Integrated Programme partner schools. To the Class of 2021, as Eunoians evermore, may you grow in purpose, heart and courage as you let your dreams take flight.

Our Minds Ignite

2020 A-LEVEL RESULTS

Eunoia Shining

Eunoia Junior College congratulates our class of 2020 for their outstanding achievement at the 2020 GCE A-Level Examination. Coming from 63 secondary schools, their collective strength as one Eunoia allowed them to ignite new possibilities amidst the unprecedented challenges of 2020.

The college is proud of all 591 Eunoians who sat the 2020 GCE A-Level Examination. The cohort achieved a median University Admission Score of 85 rank points, with 77 students attaining 90 rank points and 152 students scoring 89 rank points or more. Over 1 in 2 students garnered 85 rank points or more.

4 in 10 Eunoians scored at least 3 H2 distinctions.

1 in 4 Eunoians scored 4 H2 distinctions.

4 in 10 Eunoians attained 5 distinctions or more.

139 Eunoians attained 6 distinctions or more.

47 Eunoians achieved 7 distinctions or more.

4 Eunoians achieved a total of 8 distinctions.

1 in 2 Eunoians achieved a distinction in their H3 subjects.

Hearts United

Above and beyond their academic achievements, every Eunoian in the Class of 2020 excelled holistically as a Youth with Purpose, Thinker with Heart, Leader with Courage. They strengthened Eunoia’s house culture and created more avenues for fellow Eunoians to pursue their passions, initiating the formation of a new CCA, EJC Press, and student-initiated interest groups, Chamber Strings and Street Dance.

The Class of 2020 made the Big Move to our Bishan campus successful and memorable, leaving their mark on the Ghim Moh community and taking the important first steps to make us a part of the Bishan community. They turned a new campus into a welcoming home, filling our 12 storeys with pride and song. In a year when the National School Games and Singapore Youth Festival were suspended, they found new ways to use their talents to bring hope, inspiration and joy to others in the Eunoia community and beyond. The Rock Band collaborated with students from Crest Secondary School and Fengshan Primary School to record Everyday Heroes, a tribute to those on the frontline of the fight against the pandemic. Eunoians in GLIDE, a talent management programme focused on advocacy and service, reached out to migrant workers who built our campus, and also distributed masks to members of the community. Our student councillors led a drive to collect well wishes for Changi Airport Group staff. Commendably, the Class of 2020 channelled their talents into living out the Eunoia ethos of beautiful thinking, goodwill to all.

Dreams in Flight

Dean of the 2020 JC2 cohort, Mrs Kellie Woo, shared, ‘The year 2020 had been an unprecedented one for the JC2s. I remember the day full Home-Based Learning was declared, there were thousands of questions and worries in our heads. Our Eunoians and teachers remained resilient and purposeful, and provided support to each other virtually. Upon the gradual return to college for face-to-face lessons, we treasured every moment together and settled down quickly. I am extremely proud of the Class of 2020 for emerging stronger together from this experience. Today, we celebrate our growth, and look forward to new beginnings with high hopes.’

Principal, Mrs Wong-Cheang Mei Heng said, ‘As one Eunoia, we celebrate their holistic achievements, talent and contributions of the Class of 2020. They embraced our new campus with hope and a keen sense of determination to make the place a home for themselves and their juniors. We marvelled at the way they adjusted to the changes brought about by the pandemic with fortitude and good sense, emerging from it with greater sensitivity to what they value about learning and school life. Even as we celebrate their success at the A-Levels, and the opportunities their results afford them, they are ultimately not defined by their grades and certificates. We cherish the way the Class of 2020 supported one another, formed lifelong friendships, proved their resilience and left a legacy for their juniors to build on.’

The growth of our Eunoians and the glories they have defined would not be possible without the dedication and support of teachers, non-teaching staff, parents, College Advisory Committee and Joint Integrated Programme partner schools. To the Class of 2020, as Eunoians evermore, may you grow in purpose, heart and courage. We look forward to hearing your voices soar, once more.

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.

Big Move – That Feeling When #EunoiaHome

The Big Move

FROM MOUNT SINAI TO BISHAN

Eunoia Junior College commemorated the move from its interim Mount Sinai campus to its new home in Bishan on 6 Jan 2020. The Big Move began with a symbolic relay at Mount Sinai, with alumni from the first class of Eunoians bearing flags and making their way to Rifle Range Road via the Green Corridor. Led by Mr Chuah Jun Jie and Mr Justin Lee, they would hand over the flags to the Class of 2019 for the next leg. Receiving them at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve was a large contingent of JC2 Eunoians together with Ms Loo Jia Ning and Mr Omar Basri Sulaimir who navigated challenging terrain to arrive at Windsor Nature Park. Parent representatives and our incoming JC1 Eunoians from the Joint Integrated Programme partner schools would take the flags to Bishan Active Park.

The festivities at Bishan Active Park began as early as 8am, and the cheers grew upon the arrival of the new Eunoians at 9am and the relay participants around 10am. The college population then began a mass walk to the Bishan campus via Bishan - Ang Mo Kio Park.

The five houses, Akila, Eder, Isami, Ora and Uzuri, entered the college via different gates and converged at the elevated stadium. With equal style, Student Council President Lum Wan Tong (19-U1) arrived with the college flag on the electric vehicle developed by the Makerspace interest group, and handed it to EJC principal Mrs Wong-Cheang Mei Heng. Singing the college anthem for the first time at the Bishan campus, the Class of 2020 and 2021 truly made #EunoiaHome.

Goodbye Mount Sinai
(2017-2019)

Goodbye Mount Sinai

MOUNT SINAI CAMPUS (2017-2019)

Our Beginning

Eunoia Junior College operated from its interim campus at 53 Mount Sinai Road from 2017 to 2019, while construction of its permanent home on Sin Ming Avenue was ongoing. Before welcoming its first cohort of students, the college was situated in nearby offices at the Ministry of Education (Ghim Moh) headquarters and the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language in 2015 and 2016 respectively.

To meet the needs of a modern junior college curriculum, rejuvenation works at the Mount Sinai campus began in 2016. A new academic block, which included a seminar room and art room, was built to extend classroom space.  The multi-purpose hall, library, lecture theatres, student lounge and dance studio were refurbished. Special rooms for the Bicultural Studies Programme Room, Humanities Scholarship Programme and Music Elective Programme, as well as a jamming studio behind Lecture Theatre 1, were also added while the atria and canteen were given a facelift.

Our Home

The college's pioneering cohorts would find a home at our Mount Sinai campus. For some, the day began with a shuttle bus from MRT stations as far as Bedok and Sembawang. For many, reaching school meant a short ride on bus service 92 from Buona Vista station or a slightly longer walk from Commonwealth Ave West or Holland Road. Morning assembly started at 8 am in the hall and the quickening of footsteps could be heard from 7.55 am as the march-in music played.

Most of the day would be spent moving between classrooms,  laboratories, seminar rooms and lecture theatres for lessons that started from 8.30 am and ended as late as 6 pm.

During breaks, Eunoians would spend time at consultations with teachers at the study benches spread across Atria, quiet study time at the library or bonding over food at the student lounge and canteen. After 1 pm on weekdays, the nearby Ghim Moh Hawker Centre became an extension of home for many classes and orientation groups.

The heart of the college itself was always bustling with life. Post-exam treats from Parents@Eunoia, cultural activities led by the Mother Tongue Language department, bazaars and performances were a frequent sight at the Atria. CCA banner painting and house totems found their place at the Olympia block, alongside the queues to purchase uniforms at Seminar Room 3 or collect notes at the photocopy shop. The sounds of the college's Chinese Orchestra and Symphonic Band would overflow to accompany the training at the indoor sports hall and outdoor courts.

Amidst the gruelling training and fun, much of Eunoia's history took place in the hall: orientation for the college's three pioneering cohorts, the launch of the college anthem, the release of the first cohort's A-Level results, and the final Graduation Day at Mount Sinai for the Class of 2019. Every space in the campus holds dear memories for Eunoians, and the hall is no different.

Our Gratitude

After the 2019 A-Level Examination concluded in early December, the college began its campus shift operations. A group of Eunoians from the Class of 2019 started Project Mohmento in July to gather notes of appreciation for the stall owners at Ghim Moh and visited them in December to personally thank them for being a part of their life at Eunoia Junior College. In an email to their peers, they wrote:

 

On 4th Dec, Project Mohmento went down to Ghim Moh to deliver the postcards we've all written to appreciate the hawkers and people who contributed to our memories at Mount Sinai. The pictures we have with them are attached. As we conclude our journey here, we would like to thank everyone for making this project a meaningful ending note for Mount Sinai.
The hawkers have expressed both their gratitude and their dejection that they've not just lost any random customer, but people who've integrated into the Ghim Moh community the past 3 years. Thank you for all the support you have given us, and we are sure that Ghim Moh would never forget the mohmentos of gratitude and love, and the same for all of us! 🙂 Remember to come back for the food!
ALASTAIR, ALYSSA, ELIJAH, ELIZABETH, GERALD, MIN HAN, JOLYN AND LONG HAO

 

 

The Eunoia community is thankful for the memories at Mount Sinai. Even as we look forward to our new home in Bishan, we regard the time at our first home as fond, most beautiful years.

Last Long – Now on Spotify, Apple Music and Vimeo

'Last Long', a song written by Deputy Principal Mr Adrian Tay and performed by Karis Goh (18-A3) and Donavan Bay (17-E5), was launched on Eunoia Junior College's third College Day.

The music video was produced by a team of JC2 Eunoians from EJC Media Club, and the track was produced and arranged by Daniel Wong of Ardant Studio.

The song captures the friendships of our pioneering cohorts and some of the memories they made at our Mount Sinai campus in 2017 and 2018.

LYRICS

Doesn’t seem, really doesn’t seem so long ago
When I looked at you, you looked at me, and then we said “Hello”
I used to wonder why, wonder why growing up felt so slow
But now it seems the years have just flown by
What did we know?

Remember the time we stayed up all night?
Remember the time we had that fight?
The memories we made I don’t want them to fade
The joys and regrets 
I’ll never forget

Laughing so hard that the tears came falling
In and out of love so many times I’m going
Crazy that’s the way you drive me
Just by being you
This is our song!
Minute after minute the clock keeps ticking
On towards an end where there’s a new beginning
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
The question we’re all asking is
Will we last long?
Will we last long?

Through it all, through the ups and downs we stood by each other
I’ve got your back and you’ve got mine – rain or shine, whatever the weather
We said that we, said that we would be best friends forever
And even though this chapter’s done
Our story isn’t over

Remember the time we played in the rain?
Remember the time we lost that game?
The memories we made I don’t want them to fade
The joys and regrets 
I’ll never forget

Laughing so hard that the tears came falling
In and out of love so many times I’m going
Crazy that’s the way you drive me
Just by being you
This is our song!
Minute after minute the clock keeps ticking
On towards an end where there’s a new beginning
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
The question we’re all asking is
Will we last

Laughing so hard that the tears came falling
In and out of love so many times I’m going
Crazy that’s the way you drive me
Just by being you
This is our song!
Minute after minute the clock keeps ticking
On towards an end where there’s a new beginning
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
The answer to our question is
We will last long!
We will last long!

Doesn’t seem, really doesn’t seem so long ago
