This blog is so dead hahahaha, but here we are back to liven it up a little!
To the incoming Executive Committee '1213,

Congratulations! :) Your journey in EXCO has now begun. Just like your fellow batchmates, you guys are capable leaders, so continue to strive, and do a better job than your seniors have, and continue to bring Council to greater heights! Being in EXCO is full of its fair share of challenges and ups and downs, but at the end of the day, everything is worthwhile when you see your fellow Councillors grow and have fun together, because this is Ohana.

Treasure your opportunity, work together cohesively, be humble, empower your councillors, encourage the heart, challenge the process, model the way and seek to inspire a shared vision for the betterment of the Council. Make your remaining year in Council count, as much as possible because it'll be over before you know it. :( We wish you all the best in all the wonderful things you will bring to our beloved Ohana. :) Grow together as one Council, one Family.

Keep the spirit burning, DHSSC! <3

With love,
Wanton Mee EXCO' 1011

SC Passing Down, Ohana
Saturday, December 25, 2010 11:33 PM

Dear SCs,

Hello! Merry Christmas =D It was a wonderfully fun and also touching sc handover the day before. I’ve got some things to share here with you (:

It was indeed a fabulous effort by the year 1-3s to put up the exciting performances for the year 4 seniors, from the yr 1 daughter skit/magic show to the yr 2 part 2 of the detective & mafia trilogy, to the yr 3 songs/award presentation. The year 4s heartfelt sharing was also a highlight of night and was very meaningful. I’m sure that the year 4s will bring away the hard skills learnt over the years like planning and executing events as well as the soft skills in interacting with others. To the year 1s to 3s all the best for the rest of your SC journey; and to the year 4s, Senior High awaits you (:

There’s also something I feel strong that I wish to speak about, which is the SC Ohana spirit, the sense of belonging to the SC family.

Here’s a little intro for the newer SCs who might not know me, I’m your SC senior Ming Quan, currently 19 years old and serving national service, and graduated from year 6 last year. I was the ahod of CR in my year in jhsc and a member of IA during shsc.

I felt real excited and happy to be coming back for the sc handover. As I entered the student lounge, I saw many familiar faces as well as the year 1s in green (who I didn’t know) running around. Haha there was a warm greeting from those sitting on the window ledge putting up the decorations (: After that, I went around saying hi. It was kind of awkward at first, because I hadn’t seen you guys for a few months already. So I walked around in circles a bit with my hands in my pocket, pondering how to say: hi & how are you. (haha I recall a couple of the year 4s sharing that night about how they still aren’t sure of themselves when saying hi & how are you too, well it takes time I guess). It was really nice of Song Shan, Joelle and Ga Jing to be so warm and welcoming, thank you! The three of them got me settled down and I begin to strike up conversations with the year 2s, and the other SCs. And once I got the ball rolling, well I felt at ease again for the rest of the night (: I even got to know a few year ones like Juilet, Zhi Chun and Ang Teng, and a few more guys and girls to who I am very sorry to I for forgetting your names :X

For those who do decide to come back to visit, perhaps you might find that you might experience the initial sense of awkwardness too. But I reassure you ‘the pain is worth the memories’ ;) It was great seeing the other seniors like Wei Jie, Liang Wei, Samuel and Kiat Shing dropping by too. I sincerely hope that in 2011 and the years to come, there will be more and more seniors keeping in touch with their juniors or even giving them relevant advice on SC. It’s really heartwarming to have things like the annual IA Christmas parties where everyone can gather back together for a reunion (:

The reason that that keeps me coming back year after year to SC is the sense of belonging to the SC family that I have. Haha I had like 5 people asking me whether I would come back for next year’s handover. The answer is definitely YES! As long as I can book out of army, it’s certainly going to be my top priority for that day! (: Some of you also might remember me mentioning about the sc alumni during last year’s handover, and you might have done a survey regarding the sc alumni too. Well work’s still in progress, and it’s certainly going to take time.

I feel that SC provides you with a safe and friendly environment to grow and develop your leadership qualities and yourself. It’s also a place where there’s lots of openness and trust. It’s certainly not everywhere you can find 80 people so bonded, and have people sharing their heartfelt feelings, with even some bursting into tears. Don’t take it for granted and do treasure this!

Here, I end this post with 3 challenges to the year 4s of the present and future: One, to stay in touch with those few good friends in SC that you get along exceptionally well with; Two; to stay in touch with your level mates in SC once in a while; Three: to stay in touch with those seniors and juniors in SC that are close to you.

It might take a little effort, but I assure you that the rewards you reap would be manyfold. That’s all for now, take care and see you sooooon! :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! (:

With Lots of Love,
Ming Quan <3

Hey SCs!

Yesterday was the awesome IA Orientation 2010. It was awesome fun as we played really fun games, cleaned up SC Room which is in an awesome state now, you guys will see it soon ;D. We labelled the blazers, watched Incredible Tales together and had loads of fun. The department bonded and everybody worked together as a team.

It was an unforgettable experience, counting rubberbands, straws and many more haha. Pictures are up on facebook, do take a look ;) Many thanks to those who attended, and the presidentials as well. IA has definitely bonded together :))

In adversity, we advance. In councillors ,we inspire. In SC, we love! ;)
