Congratulations to the Class of 2016 on your excellent performance at the 2017 A-Level Examinations!
A total of 748 students sat for the Examinations last year.
1 in 2 students scored at least 3 H2 distinctions, with 180 scoring at least 6 distinctions and 66 students scoring at least 7 distinctions.
96 Victorians attained the maximum University Admission Score of 90 Rank Points.
2 out of 5 students attained a University Admission Score of at least 87.5 Rank Points.
10 H2 and 16 H1 subjects were above the national average for Distinctions.
Many Victorians achieved excellent performance not only in their academics, but holistically in their Co-Curricular Activities, leadership, and service as well. These students embody the College vision of ‘LiVE like a Victorian’, and we are very proud of them.
In particular, these students embody the all-rounded spirit that VJC hopes to inculcate in all Victorians:
Foo Yong Li (16S41)
Frances Pek Sze Hwee (16A14)
Foo Yong Li (16S41) & Frances Pek Sze Hwee (16A14)
The President and Vice-President of the 33rd Students’ Council, Yong Li and Frances demonstrated the aptitude and intuition not just for doing things right, but for doing the right things. Yong Li set exacting standards for himself and his Council, which led to the successful organisation of many college events. A pint-sized dynamo, Frances led the Red Shirts contingent and enthusiastically roused the crowd to cheer in one Victorian voice for our college athletes. Their compelling and confident leadership style was tempered by their affable and encouraging manner, which endeared them to peers and teachers.
Yong Li’s and Frances’ influence extends beyond the college community. Yong Li completed a Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes Project to raise funds and generate public awareness for the Singapore Cancer Society in 2016. Frances is a member of ALittleChange, an organisation reaching out to different underprivileged segments in society and promoting youth volunteerism. In recognition of Yong Li’s academic excellence and leadership qualities, he was awarded the Ministry of Education Pre-University Scholarship in 2016. Both Yong Li and Frances also received the Victoria Junior College Scholarship and the Singapore Police Force Book Prize in 2017.
Yong Li and Frances, thank you for your contributions to the college! Nil Sine Labore!

|Nicholas Tay Wei Jie (16S31) & Dylan Kok Kuan Kit (16S47)
Nicholas and Dylan, both familiar faces around the college, led their respective performing arts CCAs with great composure and style. As the Chairperson of the Choir, Nicholas’s quest for excellence resulted in him going the extra mile and approaching tasks with a unique zest. Similarly, Dylan, the Chairperson of the Dance Club, handled challenges with wisdom, tact and sensitivity. Both gained the respect and admiration of many, teachers and students alike.
Nicholas led the Choir to success in performance opportunities like the Symphony of Voices Concert, Ocean of Songs: A concert in memory of Leong Yoon Pin, Singapore Choral Festival and the 3rd Asia Cantate International Festival in Hong Kong. Dylan, too, demonstrated his talent by performing at numerous College events and public performances. He also choreographed and trained the dancers for their performance at the Victorian Affair, the year-end bash for first year students. Under their leadership, both the Choir and Dance performances at the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation 2017 clinched Certificates of Distinction.
Nicholas’ and Dylan’s balanced their academic and CCA commitments with aplomb. They have certainly done the college proud! We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

|Tan Chuin Wei (16S42) & Keane Ong Wei Yang (16S64)
Brains and brawn: a study in contrasts. Yet, these two student-leaders both scaled their respective peaks of excellence.
Chuin Wei, the Chairperson of the Science Society, won the admiration of his peers with his decision to offer both H3 History and H3 Physics. He is truly an example of a modern Renaissance man. At the same time, he was an exemplary leader. He led the Science Society in organising the East Zone Science Carnival and served as a facilitator at CLiC, VJC’s leadership-development camp. His ability to reach out warmly and sincerely to his juniors endeared him to many.
As Chairperson of the Outdoor Activities Club (ODAC), Keane led his team-mates through gruelling physical and mental challenges on multiple adventure trails. His peers looked up to him and his leadership qualities were apparent. Keane also committed time and effort to serve the community. In 2017, he took part in the May Day Migrant Workers’ Celebration, aimed at promoting social inclusiveness and at encouraging harmonious co-existence between Singaporeans and migrant workers. In recognition of his consistently outstanding achievements, Keane was awarded the Ministry of Education Pre-University Scholarship, the Singapore Technologies Engineering Junior College Scholarship and the Victoria Junior College Scholarship in appreciation of Mrs Lee Phui Mun.
Our heartiest congratulations to Chuin Wei and Keane for their outstanding performance!
