Secondary One Orientation Camp 2018

The Secondary One Orientation Camp 2018 took place from the 11th - 12th January in Yusof Ishak Secondary School.  

Through participating in the camp, the Secondary One students got to familiarise with the school environment, values and explored their CCA options better. They also got to interact and get to know their classmates better. 

Led by their orientation group leaders (OGL) made up of peer leaders and student councillors, Secondary One students started the camp with fun ice-breakers. Each class designed their own flag and came up with their own cheer. After lunch, students enjoyed team-bonding activities which helped them to know the school staff, values, history and heritage. They ended the first day with the evening activity which consist of solving puzzles and answering quizzes at various stations around the school. 

One of the highlights of Day 2 was the trip to the Istana Heritage Gallery, where a knowledgeable volunteer briefed our students of the history of the Istana. Students also saw precious artefacts on display, some of which were gifted to our leaders by dignitaries from other countries. Upon returning to school, students prepared for their campfire item. Many parents attended the talks organised for them by the School Leaders before proceeding to join their children at the Campfire.  

Although the weather was cold and rainy and the campfire had to be held indoors, our hearts were warmed by the heartfelt sharing and talented performances which all the Secondary One students put up. The day ended with Secondary 1/1 winning the prestigious annual Challenge Shield. We hope that all students have benefited much from this camp.  We also wish that the camp was as a good start to their journey here at Yusof Ishak Secondary!
