National School Games

27 May 2022

With the easing of COVID-19 SMM, the National School Games, the largest annual inter-school sports competition, was back! And true to the Victorian Spirit, our athletes made us proud with their high standards in sportsmanship, discipline and skills. And on the stands, our school spirit was clearly seen and heard. Led by the Red Shirts, our Victorians cheered on their peers, and continued even during the breaks, bringing a carnival-like atmosphere to the Games. Their excellent performance netted the College 4 Champion, 8 Runner-Up and 5 Second Runner-Up place trophies. Well-done Victorians!

In this ‘By Victorians, For Victorians’ edition of JC2 Feeling Fab, our student leaders facilitated their peers in various engaging activities.

At the end of the term, JC1 Victorians embarked on their own Feeling Fab, in campus and beyond! The classes picked from a variety of activities, such as frisbee, fencing, dragon boating and ice cream making! A definite treat on the last Fri-YAY of the term.

Students’ Council Investiture

Students’ Council (SC) Investiture was held on the last Monday of Term 2 and witnessed the stepping down of the 38th SC and handing over to the 39th SC. It was a significant event to remember the key contributions of the 38th SC who worked tirelessly to ensure that their peers are still able to experience a full college life, despite the restrictions due to the pandemic. As we thank the 38th, we also look forward to exciting initiatives that the 39th will bring. Nil Sine Labore!

VCA Science Explore

18 May 2022

On 18th May, IP1 students and their teachers from Victoria School and Cedar Girls Secondary School participated in the 2022 Victoria-Cedar Alliance (VCA) Science Explore. After a two year break due to COVID-19, it was heartening to see young Victorians and Cedarians enjoy the STEM related hands-on activities and experiments. They were fully engaged all afternoon in problem solving and exploration. Not only did they get to explore various aspects of science and technology in the activities, students from both schools were able to socialise and interact with each other and their seniors from Victoria JC. The seniors had a blast designing and facilitating the workshops, and it was a joy to see the VCA fraternity enjoying the activities!
