ACJC AT THE 55TH NATIONAL SCHOOLS SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP

 

In the recent 55th National Schools Swimming Championships that commenced on 14th April 2014 and concluded on 23rd April 2014, the swimmers emerged victorious and did Anglo-Chinese Junior College proud by defending their 2013 titles – overall second position for the girls and third position for the boys. 

 

 

 

Some highlights of the competition included the outstanding performances by the following swimmers: 

Marina Chan broke the meet record for the 50m Freestyle event and obtained a second gold medal for the 100m Freestyle event,

Natasha Tan bagged two gold medals for the 50m and 100m Butterfly events and

Daryl Ho, Brendan Teo, Rachel Lum and our vice-captains Gerald Chua and Christabel Chai emerged as medallists for their respective events.

 

The girls relay team, comprising Christabel Chai, Rachel Lum, Natasha Tan, Marina Chan and Hillary Yu, did exceedingly well as they were placed second for both the 4x50m Freestyle and 4x50m Medley events. 

Daryl Ho, Gerald Chua, Brendan Teo, Maguire Lim and Max Ang, members of the boys relay team, also put up a tough fight as they achieved third and fourth placing in the 4x50m Freestyle and 4x50m Medley events respectively.

 

 

 

 

 

The months of preparation leading up to the National Schools Swimming Championships proved to be both physically and mentally demanding as we had to devote time and energy to daily training sessions, school work and other commitments. It was truly by God’s grace and the constant encouragement of our teammates, coaches and teachers that we were able to complete the season on a victorious note. We rejoice that the obstacles we overcame together have developed in us a spirit of tenacity and passion.

 

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our principal, vice-principals, coaches, teachers, parents and supporters for their blessings and continued support. Most importantly, we would like to thank God for giving us strength and for bringing us through the swimming season. 

 

To God be the glory, the best is yet to be!

Congratulations to the boys (James Leow of 1SB3 and Jovan Lai of 2SC6) and girls teams (Ariel Lee of 2AD3 and Wong Yen Ting of 1AD2)!
 
In the individual events, James Leow achieved the gold medal in the boys division, and Ariel Lee achieved a silver medal while Wong Yen Ting achieved a bronze medal in the girls division.
 
We thank God for keeping the skies clear on all our competition days and for keeping us safe. 
 
We also thank the principals, teachers, friends and teacher-in-charge, Mr Calvin Choo, for their unwavering support and encouragement.
 
To God be the Glory, the Best is Yet to Be.

ACJC Retains Waterpolo National Championship Title

 

 

After 5 months of intensive training, the water polo team began the A Division Inter-School Water Polo competition on 11th March 2014. We started the preliminaries well, defeating Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) 17-2, followed by a 17-4 win against St. Andrew’s Junior College. Subsequently, we emerged victorious against Raffles Institution with a score of 9-5. Our last match in the preliminaries against Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) proved to be the toughest. After a long and gruelling battle, we eventually lost with a score of 8-11. 

 

 

We met HCI again in the Finals on 3rd April 2014. Despite leading on multiple occasions, our opponents always managed to keep the score line close, holding the goal difference at merely 1 or 2 goals. Thankfully, our teamwork and composure allowed us to hold our ground and eventually, we edged out our opponents with a score of 8-7, defending our championship title. 

 

 

The water polo team would like to express our gratitude to our Principal Ms. Beatrice Chong, our Vice-Principals, our teachers-in-charge, Mr. Lim Chee Hong and Mr. Chang Kok Keong, our coaches, Mr. Paul Tan and Mr. Kuah Kah Huat, and everyone who came to support us. 

 

 

Lastly, we would like to thank God for giving us the strength to overcome all the obstacles we faced over the course of this journey. To God be the glory, the best is yet to be.
