On the Monday morning after the JC1 promotional examinations, all the JC1 students gathered in the hall and headed out to their respective venues. The teachers at JJC organised a series of exciting activities like bowling, golf, archery, fencing, rock-climbing and hip-hop dance class, etc. Many of the activities were held externally, one of them was bowling. The teacher chaperones brought the students to the bowling centre at Jurong East and the students were divided into groups of five and compete against each one another. The activity with the highest number of participants was Archery.
Professional archers were engaged to teach students the fundamentals of archery. Although academic lessons are important, recreational activities as such are important too. Mr. Elson Loh, JJC PE teacher, said that there were several problems faced when selecting the activities. For example, many water activities undergo maintenance on Mondays, and some of the activities were too costly. Some activities were too popular such that some students were unable to join the activity of their top choice.
Nevertheless, these activities enabled the students to relieve their academic stress and also gave them a sense of satisfaction.
