Haha Kaiyuan here, uploading Tea Party pictures... Sorry dint find time to upload this earlier. Hope it's still in time for Zijie to do class montage. Everyone good luck for prelims n alevels! Jiayou! And update class blog leh lol
Well, class blog is so dead. And it's been a long time since we had a class outing. So, we'll be having an adhoc outing at beauty world there tmr. There's a shop with lan, arcade and pool, so there should be something for everyone. I think it requires membership, should be $2 bah, so not a big deal. It's ok if not all the ppl can make it coz this is kinda rush, I doubt we can find a day when the whole class can go anyways, so just try to go. But there should be a better planned class outing some time later. ;)
Here are the details for tmr: Date & Venue: 31st April at beauty world Time: 11am (tentative, it's ok to go later also) See ya there~~!
the 30 hour famine's coming up again this year. this time its from june 5 to june 6, friday to saturday. its basically no food for 30 hours, but you will be provided drinks to supplement yourselves if you feel the need to. (you definitely wont go hungry.) there will be activities, games, groupwork, community involvement projects, and exhibitions on this year's theme (“I Can. I Will. Make A Difference”; HIV/AIDS-related). and this year, somehow it starts at ACS (Barker) but ends at D'Marquee, Downtown East with a concert.
there is the same fee as last year: $30 camp fee. (to be submitted via check to World Vision International) also, a registration form to be signed by your parents. both are to be mailed to the office directly, or submitted personally. but should you want to sign up, i'll act as coordinator for our class if the school does not, or some students dont come up like they did last year. i'll check with the school asap to see if there will be a school signup first, will keep you guys informed.
besides signing up as a participant, there is the choice of signing up as a volunteer: group leader, stations i/cs etc. but as details are not up yet, i have no idea as to which posts they have, and how many training sessions you have to go for (yes, you do have to go for training sessions for these volunteer posts).
yupyup. thats all about this event. strongly recommend you to join, especially since (enlin and) i went last year and experienced it firsthand. $30 may be a bit much, but start saving now and it would work out. =) please try to go!

Our Class Logo and just maybe...our Class T-shirt
Hi 08s73 =), I've come up with two tentative designs for our class logo which if agreed upon could be used for our class T-shirts. The first is the more serious of the options while the other is more "vibrant". Forgive me if they're not really that impressive...created it within an hour using flash 8 in the wee hours of the morning. Please send me any comments on the design or the colours of the logo through msn (Can't really decide on a colour that is universally liked by both genders) and as you do that, you may want to help me figure out the "special characteristic" that everyone in our class all share...I'm still having trouble identifying that. At the mean time, if any of you guyz/galz have alternative designs, feel free to email them to me.
Oh yah btw, the words below 08s73 in each logo are "Coz we are special in our own ways".

The Gospel! (and thanks Dr Arnold)
Funny for public property to be destroyed by 'elite' student?
A STOMPer came across this picture of a student with a bent signpost, as if the latter was in the act of vandalising it, and he is concerned that students these days are too caught up in the paper chase and are not learning the right things.
Perry wrote, in his email to STOMP:
"I came across this picture showing a student destroying and showing off what seems to be the remains of a street sign. I request for a clarification and discussion upon the action of this student clad in the uniform of what I believe to be of Hwa Chong Institution which was renowned for its history of nurturing great academic leaders in the local scene.
"The question I had in mind was, does having higher education eventually make the students lose the fundamental values which we are thought to be possessing?
"The showboating of destroyed public property seems to very much amuse the person in the picture.
"Aren’t we told at a very young age that every single of us should partake in the effort of protecting public properties? I am rather intrigued by the mindset of such student and what are the motivating factors which result in such insightful actions.
"Is it a wrong move by the Singapore government, or should I say that is it a wrong move of mankind to focus more on the mathematics and sciences which were deemed as more important and possesses higher priority then moral education? I believed we had made a wrong move and we are witnessing the negative impacts of academic education without a basis on moral education first.
"For example, the formal chairman of the National Kidney Foundation was charged with inappropriate usage of the funds. Think of how much academic qualification he had achieved before he took on the mantle of leadership of the NKF.
"I believed many of us had witnessed students misbehaving in public.
"Students loitering under void decks after school; making a nuisance out of themselves by littering and making noise.
"Underage smoking, sex and alcohol consumption has become common and the abnormality of this issue is that no strong movement against such acts had been seen. For example, During January and February, 1,164 people under the age of 18 were nabbed for underage smoking, more than the 1,113 caught in the first two months of last year and 1,069 in 2006. There are an increasing number of offenders.
"No obvious resistance about such moral issues was seen is it because only the academic results of the kids count? Are our character determined by the number of “A”s we scores? Is such degradation of moral thinking resulted from the academic driven society?"
STOMP is contacting the JC for a comment. Watch this space for updates. ___________________________________________________________________________
I feel lost? maybe a little disturbed, hwachong students vandalising public property. Thats more than 4 demerit points and 1 CS session! :0
Oh wait! :/
Did you notice something? Our uniform colour is Khaki, not GREEN. I am sure all Hwachongers would have some thing to say as well. 0.0!
And so i scrolled down to the "comments" to find some brave soul who would point out the egregious flaw/slip of the mind, and found a friend phrased the comment ever so succinctly. This is what he wrote:
Hi there, you are committing a very grave Reductio ad absurdum fallacy by deriving such a conclusion from a single picture. No doubt there are teenagers who are committing the things of which you have stated but using an isolated example as a the final example to your conclusion of grades chasing > character building is flawed. -peace-
hiii people!!! hopefully u see this and pass the msg on!
THERES CLASS OUTING ON THURSDAY!!!! so cancel all your hiooijreoipwahrjmauepiurhioar plans on thursday!(: (and no, hiooijreoipwahrjmauepiurhioar is not some cheem word you have never heard of. but the longest word i noe is SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS! wahahahaha)
