Hey J1 Artemis,
Orientation ended officially on Friday on a high note with the long awaited campfire!
Looking at the past two weeks, it will definitely be the time that you guys would never forget in the entire of your JC lives. Starting with OG orientation…
OGs were the first friendship that were formed in JC, and even as you shout your lungs out for your OGs in the different OG games that you take part in, please remember that above all, these games were meant to build strong friendships that should last you through the entire JC journey.
Splitting into the different faculties and classes was indeed a tough act as we reluctantly leave our OGs that have been with us for that one week as we moved on to the classes that would be with us for the rest of our JC life. While there were a bit of awkwardness at the beginning, the ice was soon broken by the CT icebreakers and CT games.
Time passed quickly and it was soon TIME FOR WAR!
Armed with paint and water bombs, we 'fought' against the other faculties to be the strongest faculty ever! (Curious about the results? It will be released on Wednesday J) While Artemis may not seem to be winning, we never did give up and most importantly we played fair and had fun.. and, that is what matters most. After all, we are "Four Facs, One Hwach"!
At long last, we have our long awaited, CAMPFIRE! The SODACHE challenge took place in the morning as 15S6F, 15S6D and 15S65 represented our faculty in the Song, Dance and Cheer challenge respectively. 15S6F did Artemis proud by winning in the song category, and even though 6D and 65 didn't win, they still did their best and we are really proud of them!
IT was soon time for the grand light up as our Faculty Heads represented the faculty to light up the flames.
After the grand light up, the SODACHE segment finally started. OGs started gathering together, and even the seniors have fun together singing and dancing the classics that we were all used to. After all, this is a part of our tradition!
While the end of campfire marks the end of Orientation, let's not forget that THIS IS NOT THE END! Up next… POP! POP will be held on Wednesday after Chinese New Year and it is finally time for you guys to shine. Let all of the effort that you guys have put in for the past week pay off and dance till your heart content! After all it is YOUR POP!
