Today was the first day of Orientation 2013!
The doors of the Auditorium opened and people streamed in with a colourful sea of uniforms. Orientation 2013 began with assembly, a speech from Mrs. Kong, and a speech by the President of the 38th Student Council, Peh Zheng Wei. After the speech, the OGLs welcomed the new JC1s with the Mass Dance!
The day commenced with ice-breaker games and OG bonding to get everyone familiar with each other and soon enough, our new JC1s were warmed up and ready to carry on with the day’s activities. The J1s then had a subject combination talk and a preview for what was in store for them in the next week. To our new JC1 students, we hope you continue to have a wonderful experience for the rest of Orientation 2013!
This wrapped up Day 1 of CJC’s Orientation 2013!
The Student Council President, Zheng Wei’s opening address:
Good morning J1s, welcome to Catholic JC. Your Orientation Group Leaders and I are so excited to have you here with us and we can’t wait to kick off this Orientation together with you. I am Zheng Wei, the President of the Student Council.
The theme for Orientation this year is Illumino, the Latin root word of Illuminate. The idea of light in Illuminate is associated with our college flame that will guide us in our journey here in CJ.
As of now, all of you are in different school uniforms, coming from different schools. I assure you that if you go all out to enjoy yourself during Orientation, you will make many friends by the end of Orientation. I personally made many friends during Orientation and forged many friendships last year and I know they are my friends who will be my friends for life.
I hope that all of you will have a good time and enjoy Orientation, form lasting friendships, love the college that all of us seniors care so deeply for and be a part of our CJ family.
This will be a brand new experience for you, but we hope that you will enjoy and participate fully in all the activities planned for you. So, go all out and just have fun during these 5 days.
Together, let’s make this a memorable experience in your entire JC life.
