4 April 2021: UG POP and CCA Appreciation Tea 2022

The 2021 Uniformed Groups (UG) Passing Out Parade (POP) and CCA Appreciation Tea was held on 4 April 2022 (Monday). It was a great sight to behold as all 22 CCAs were gathered at the parade square and school hall to celebrate this momentous occasion to mark the end of their CCA journey in JWSS. It had been a long time since our UG cadets were able to form up at the parade square to witness the POP Ceremony. The tossing of cadets’ berets was also symbolic of the completion of their UG life in secondary school. 

In the hall, students from each CCA group shared their challenging and exciting journeys as they made the best use of the learning opportunities despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic.  With grit #teamjurongwest students showed that they are ready to take on the future ahead of them. As the event drew to the close, the CCA Appreciation Tea marked the end of the students’ CCA journey as they turn their focus and efforts onto the National Examinations.

Lunar New Year Celebration 2022

The MTL Department organized the Lunar New Year Celebrations 2022 on 31st January, the eve of Lunar New Year. Students were able to view livestream of the event and participated in activities planned for the different levels. 

The Secondary 1 student wrote couplets and did paper cutting as part of the Secondary 1 Culture Booth. The Secondary 2 and 3 students played a game of Digital Escape Room as they learned more about the culture and custom of Lunar New Year. 

Lastly, the Secondary 4 students put their knowledge to the test and compete against each other on the Secondary 4 Quiz Show via Zoom. Prizes were also awarded to the classes who came up top on the Lunar New Year Lead-up activities, which required the class to come together and make crafts or videos related to Lunar New Year. 

The climax of the celebrations was when we got to do a singalong session led by Ms Amanda Lee and Mr Benjamin Low, whilst looking out for the Fortune God! Even though we were not able to gather at the hall and celebrate Lunar New Year like before, it was still a memorable day as students got to participate in meaningful activities while learning more about the cultural aspects of Lunar New Year.
