Event Highlights Term 4 2018
The last assembly – 8th December 2018
3000 over TPJCians came home to capture the last moments of TPJC on 8 Dec 2018. We walked through corridors, embracing the safe spaces that nurtured us and saw our best and worst of times. It was here within these walls that we forged firm friendships, bettered ourselves and shared laughter and tears. It was a bittersweet reunion as we listened to the words of our principal Ms Pamela Yoong in the hall, as well as witnessed College Advisory Committee chairperson since college inception, Mr Sim Hong Boon, unveil merged.sg – a heritage website documenting the sights and sounds of TPJC made by our alumnus, Mr Ng Kai Yuan, and his team. We stood shoulder to shoulder in the field, our hearts swelling with pride and sadness as we sang our college song whilst our flag was lowered for the last time by Mr Ng Yu Chian, Vice-President of the 1st Student Council. We stood at attention and bade a final farewell to the college as the Last Post was sounded against the backdrop of grey clouds reflecting the sombre and solemn mood of the occasion. “Proud are we to be a part of Tampines Junior College”. Indeed, as our gates were locked by our Principal and we hugged and celebrated the best that TPJC has given us, we know that we will go with courage, ready to face life’s challenges.

Our Last Staff Meeting
24 Oct 2018 marked the last staff meeting for TPJC. The strong camaraderie and firm friendships forged amongst the staff will stay with us forever.
Our TPJC Ohana – All hands on deck!
Our JC2s may be busy preparing for their A Levels but when they see the old uncles and aunties shifting heavy furniture, they drop their books and roll up their sleeves to help out. This is our TPJC Ohana.
12 October 2018 marked the last day of school before our JC 2s embarked on their study break leading up to the A Levels. Sending them off with much love, our teachers from every department came together to put up a highly entertaining concert celebrating our good memories together as a college and to wish them luck. We ended the day with a scrumptious lunch in the hall and much fun at the photobooths and our favourite phototaking spot, the college field with the iconic TPJC roof in the background. It is a bittersweet moment as we say goodbye to TPJCs 32nd and final cohort but we do so with great pride and the knowledge that they will live by their college values of responsibility, integrity, courage and humility in all that they do. Aim and Achieve, TPJCians. Your Ohana believes in you.
Harvard Prize Book (Singapore)
The Harvard Prize Book (Singapore) recognises an altruistic individual who has, over a sustained period of time, gone beyond the call of duty to perform acts of kindness and caring, and who may have inspired his or her peers or family members to do likewise. These acts reveal an inner motivation to help in an authentic manner.
From TPJC, Nur Liyana Bte Mohamad Joned (17A01) is the recipient of the Harvard Prize Book 2018. Liyana has positively impacted her family and friends through her selfless acts, maturity and cheerfulness even in adverse situations. Liyana has been an exemplary student and we are proud and touched by her heart for others.

We wish them all the very best for their A Levels too!
