Hello CJC! You all must be wondering what ONE^CJC is exactly after today's morning announcement! Well, with this post, you will be able to gain a better understanding of this year's Sports Carnival's theme!
Origin refers to the origins of CJC, and the identities of our houses based on the Saints that they have been named after. The inheritance of the names facilitates a greater and deeper understanding of our college, a history that few CJCians are acquainted with.
The college flame consists of three primary colors, each representative of the positive qualities and traits which our college promotes – Red signifies passion and love, expressed in service, which is built on the truth that sets us free. Yellow embodies warmth and compassion, as well as gratitude for what we have. Gold is the colour of excellence and our collective aspiration to shine in all that we do. This combination of colour outline our aim to excel in living and learning.
CJC's community is growing every year with incoming J1s. This means new experiences will be made, new perspectives are created, new knowledge is gained and new bonds are formed. All of this brings about a constant renewal of CJC's community.
For the J2s, it will be a new experience as well as they transit from being the juniors to the seniors, having to be the role models to the J1s, as well as having more responsibilities, such as in their studies and their co-curricular activities (CCA).
For both cohorts, this is the first year whereby we go beyond the naming and the colour of our houses, but rather, gain a deeper understanding of our houses as well.
Starting anew together, CJCians can thus excel as one. We encourage each other to strive for excellence and so CJC's community is continually brought to greater heights. We want all CJCians to embody CJC's community spirit, i.e. One in Truth and in Love, and the never-say-die attitude to pursue excellence in whatever we do, be it our interests or academics.
While the CJC in the theme does stand for Catholic Junior College, we also hope for it to encompass the theme of contributing and giving back to society, in line with the school missions and values.
Above all, we hope that CJCians not only excel in academics or sports but excel in their character too, so that they would be able to share and utilize their talents for the benefits of the entire society, especially through contributing to the least in our society. This would thus drive home the idea of CJCians being "Thinkers with a Mission and Leaders with a Heart".
See you there at this year's Sports Carnival!
CJC IGNITE! FLAME ON!
