The question on every O level graduate’s mind after collecting his/her results would most definitely be “Where to next?” and any help in that area would be akin to receiving water in the desert. Being admitted to Jurong Junior College after my four-year stint in secondary school, I had my apprehensions. A new environment, new people... the food. Would I be able to adapt to college life?
JJC may not be a top-tier college and may not be the first choice for many and to be honest, it wasn’t my first choice either. But from the first day of orientation to the day I graduated as a Year 2 science student, the teachers the staff and my schoolmates have been nothing but warm. The school actively organised events to bring the student body closer together. The tutors, even those not assigned to my class, were always there to lend a helping hand staying in school for consultations even when the sky turned dark.
Sure the food served in the canteen may not be that cheap or as yummy as that served at home or in your secondary school but the Malay rice stall and baked potato from the Good News Cafe is definitely one to look out for.
With such a conducive environment to study, with every classroom being air-conditioned, the staff being so welcoming and warm and not to mention the food being relatively pleasant to the taste buds, JJC is definitely a college to put as one of your choices.
This JC focuses a lot of character development, with more emphasis placed on it than on academic development. Throughout my studies there, there were always many camps organised by student leaders and it was very fun with all the rah-rah and cheering. The best thing about it is that we do not have to wear uniforms everyday and we have the liberty to wear any house t-shirt or class/cca t-shirts, there is just a lot of freedom, not to mention we had no discipline master.
Food food food! Every break time was to eat and eat. There are so many choices available. The more unique ones include ice cream waffle, cup corn, cheese cake and the stationery store sells so many nice and cute japanese chocolate, cookies and treats such as Meiji.
Did I also mention that all our classrooms are air-conditioned?
