OPEN HOUSE 2020: THE VICTORIA EFFECT
The Victoria Effect was held on 14 January. Decked out in our finest gear, Victorians welcomed close to 1,500 visitors. Our student ambassadors, known affectionately as the FACEs of VJC, brought O-Level graduates and their parents around our campus home, showing them the different facets of Victorian life and giving them a glimpse of the Victorian Effect. Visitors enquired about academic and non-academic programmes on offer, were enthralled by performances by our Victorian talent and basked in the vibrancy of Victorian culture. VJ Boleh!
Our campus is getting a facelift as we upgrade our facilities to create a conducive environment for learning. Look forward to more collaborative spaces in the library, brighter lecture theatres and a spruced up sports gallery!
On 11 October 2019, we held a Farewell Assembly for our J2s as the college gathered to celebrate their achievements, appreciate their contributions to the college and wished them all the best for their A level examinations.
