Charisse Peh Xue Qi, 18S36
(Cedar Girls’ Secondary School)
A people-centred leader. A sensitive problem-solver. A convincing influencer. These were terms used to describe Charisse, the Vice-President of the 36th Students’ Council. In her term of office, Charisse had to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and overcome sticky challenges. Yet, she did all of these with composure and aplomb.
Concurrently, Charisse was equally committed as a member of the VJC Choir and also managed to find time for personal development. She participated in the 2019 Criminal Behavioural Analysis Competition and volunteered her time at the Grassroots and Governance Programme.
An empathetic and respectful leader who always puts her people at the centre, Charisse is Madam Victoria who has won the hearts and minds of the college community.
“My teachers’ willingness to share their personal experiences and their honest advice helped me tremendously in my walk as a student leader. My friends kept my morale high. This wholesome VJ experience would not be possible without such a caring and fun community.”
The Record-Breaking Athlete
Kampton Kam, 18S45
Kampton is an exceptional high jumper with many accolades under his belt. During his time at VJC, he participated in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Argentina (7th position), 2018 ASEAN School Games in Malaysia (Gold), 2018 Hong Kong Inter-City Athletics Championship (Gold), 2019 Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines (7th position), amongst others.
At the 2019 National School Games Championship, Kampton broke the U19/U20/U23 national record with a new personal best of 2.15m. With that, he became the 2nd highest jumper in the entire sporting history of Singapore!
Kampton is truly an inspiring athlete who sets high standards for himself and strives to achieve them each time. His biggest aspiration is to compete in the Olympic Games and he has already set his sights on Paris 2024!
“I want to thank Ms Ek who was supportive once she knew of my decision to compete at the Youth Olympic Games and the ASEAN School Games, Mrs Cindy Loh and my Project Work teammates who were so understanding, Mr Aaron Lim who took personal time out to coach me in Chemistry, Ms Evelyn Teoh who helped me arrange for extra help and make-up lessons and Mr Ho Wei Kang who helped me with Mathematics.”
The Modern Renaissance Woman
Ge Shu, 18S55
(Singapore Chinese Girls’ School)
A passionate young scientist, Ge Shu participated in the Nanyang Research Programme in 2019, where she attained a Gold Award. She was also an accomplished contestant at national and international science and mathematics competitions, including the 2019 Asian Physics Olympiad, where she was recognised as the Best Female Performer.
At the same time, Ge Shu is a talented artist whose beautiful masterpiece won her the First Prize at the 2018 Yan Yuan Bei International Youth Chinese Calligraphy and Painting Competition.
As the Vice-Chairperson of iGlobe, Ge Shu helped to organise the 2019 Singapore Model Cabinet. Desirous to give back to society and advocate for change, she embarked on a Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes project to raise awareness for the Children’s Cancer Society.
A modern Renaissance woman cultivated in the laboratories of VJC and who has gone on to paint the world’s canvas in bold hues, Ge Shu is a Victorian who has kept our college flag unfurled.
“My teachers were always very patient and my peers cheered me on when I felt tired and wanted to give up. At VJC, it was like having a huge family with me, giving me the support I needed to continue my venture forward!”
The Fleet-Footed Sportsman
Amir Hafiz B Rohaimi, 18S61
(St. Patrick’s School)
Amir entered VJC via the Direct School Admissions Exercise and became an integral member of the VJC sporting community. A member of the Cross Country Team, he participated in the 2019 WINGS Cross Country Championships and achieved a third runner-up team placing at the 2019 National School Games ‘A’ Division Cross Country Championships.
Amir also made the starting line-up for the National School Games ‘A’ Division Football Championships. The boys soccer team did the college proud by emerging champion in 2018 and first runner-up in 2019.
A warm and kind-hearted individual, Amir believed in the importance of giving back to the community. Together with his class, he completed a Values-in-Action project at the Tembusu Senior Activity Centre.
“VJC and Mr Tan Yew Hwee played a significant role in my growth as a student and more importantly as a person. Grades are important, of course, and we see this in the college’s consistently excellent results. But I will also always remember the great emphasis placed on character, too.”
The Critical Thinker
Benedict Chang Yew Kit, 18A13
(Anglican High School)
A recipient of the MOE Humanities Scholarship, Benedict is a man of the arts. He was Chairperson of Writers’ Circle, organising many of the club’s key events to promote a love of the literary arts. He was a thoughtful leader who was humble and honest in his dealings with peers and teachers.
As a member of iGlobe, Benedict also participated in different Model United Nations conferences and chaired the Singapore Model Cabinet in 2019. His involvement in such activities helped him to grow as a critical and inventive thinker and develop as a global citizen.
“The friends and teachers I’ve had the privilege of interacting with over these two years have sharpened my thinking and expanded my outlook, serving as irreplaceable catalysts for personal growth and insight.”
