Heatlh Nexus -Sports Picnic @ Sentosa
On 22 February 2014, members of Health Nexus assembled early in the morning at 6.50am outside Canberra Community Club. They were there to give support and participate in the inaugural Sports Picnic @ Sentosa organized by the Canberra Community Club for the residents and youths of this ward.
Upon arrival at the CC, we were greeted by the many residents who had signed up for this event. Everyone was excited to get going. Once the event had been declared open by Dr Lim Wee Kiak, the eager participants boarded the waiting buses which would ferry us to our destination – Palawan Beach.

Hissing Snakes, Goodbye Kisses - Make way for the Galloping Horses!
Staff of Canberra Secondary School celebrated Chinese New Year during Happy Hour on 10 February 2014. The programme started off with the Loh Hei. Mr Chen Jia Liang gave a step-by-step guide on the meaning and process of mixing the ingredients. It generated a lot of laughter as the staff set goals for themselves and the school. The next item was creating Chinese proverbs using the Chinese brush by our non-Chinese colleagues and designing a poster to represent the year of the horse using some craft materials supplied. That generated another interesting journey of discovery of hidden talents. Finally it ended with a buffet where the staff had a fulfilling feast.
“Friends, the ingredients to life.”
13th February was the day we celebrated Friendship Day in school. The Student Leaders had brainstormed and come up with an array of activities and services for Canberrans to participate in and utilize. Booths were set up in the canteen and our students were able to not only buy snacks, cards and note-paper, they were also able to use the messenger service available, to have their items delivered to their friends. Apart from those mentioned, there were also song dedications and ‘shout outs’ for those who wanted to show their appreciation for their friends in a slightly different way.
The Friendship Day event was also a joint effort between the SJAB and 1T1 students. The SJAB cadets had taken time off during the previous weekend to make batches of delicious cookies and chocolates. All the goodies were sold out within the first 30 minutes of the lower secondary recess, which just goes to show how yummy they were.
