Dear 101ers,

We have been together for about a year. Guess it is time for us to reflect on our growth for the past one year and even share our photos and experiences at the Chalet. Some guiding questions for your considerations:


  1. How have I changed for the past 1 year?
  2. What differences do I see in my friends?
  3. What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?
Please comment... while Ziying will create a post for all of us to upload our photos online.

Before I reflect on the 3 questions, I would like to thank all the boys who stayed up during the night for our safety: All of you have made me sleep soundly. Thank you very much!

This are my thoughts and feelings about the chalet.

1. How have I changed for the past 1 year?

During the past year, I have found that I interacted with everyone more and more and not only a small group of people.

2. What differences do I see in my friends?

I see that more people are being more concerned with me and that they are also a little open with me.

3. What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

I found that people in the first half of the year are not as concerned about me unlike the second half of the year. Eg: Maths(Factorisation)

Anyways, I would like to thank everyone for such a fun time at the chalet. Furthermore, I appreciate the gift of appreciation that my friends gave me. I know that they spent time and effort on this and I wish to thank you. Even though not everyone gave me, I am still happy that we spent time together bonding during this chalet.

1. I have become much more sociable and learnt to get to know more people in the class.

2. I find that more of my classmates are much more wiling to help me and that they also start up more conversations with me.

3. The main difference is that most of us argue less though there are still quite a few occurrences of arguments.

How have I changed for the past 1 year?
I learnt to trust and respect people and to have strong bonds as well as teamwork.

What differences do I see in my friends?
We are more co-operative and we know what to do at the right time. Most classmates also have more initiative to volunteer or help out.

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?
We managed to listen and voice out more so that problems are solved faster. We argued less and more people were happy with the plan than in mid-year.

1. I have learnt lots of things for the past 1 year, such as respect, taking initiative, tolerance and putting others as first priority.
While learning all these, I also see myself in the process; how I act in the past, reflect upon it, and think of how others would have felt if I did that.


2. Some friends have become more tolerant to others and not so impulsive, some have grown more respect for each other.


3. I did not attend the mid-year outing, so I cannot really make a good comparison. But according to what other classmates have told me, the mid-year outing was more hectic and not organised properly. With that experience, I think that the CEC has did a good job putting more thinking into the planning and improved on the time planning.






PS: Your welcome Ziying! ahahahahahahah! :)

1. How have I changed for the past 1 year?
I have learnt not to forgive and forget, and to respect my friends' and teachers' decision, or when they are speaking.

2. What differences do I see in my friends?
They show more respect to me and the others, and also co-operated with me during schoolwork or even normal chatting, where they would listen attentively and not get distracted while listening.

3. What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?
There were lesser arguments, which actually helped the CEC to give us enough time for the activities planned and not stuck arguing on a single topic, unlike the mid-year trip, where we had tons of arguments and in the end, it resulted in many people not participating in the activities and unhappiness.

1. From the past 1 year, I've learnt to become more independent, and to not completely rely on others to get the job done. Besides that, I have also learnt to respect my friends' opinions, and treat them how you want to be treated.

2. They have become more co-operative, and increased the bond among them. Furthermore, they have also become more independent and respectful.

3. The mid-year outing was more "crazy" and not planned as well and as detailed, and we had many arguments, resulting in unhappiness among us. As for the chalet, we listened to others' points of view before deciding or arguing.

P.S. thanks guys for guarding the chalet. HAHA XD

Jingyi said...

1. For the past year, I learned to socialise and keep a wide circle of friends, become more independent, and to hold others in high accord with respect.

2. They have bonded together much better than the first half of the year, and as we practiced the ten C's, everyone got along and co-operated with each other much better.

3. I had no idea about the mid-year outing since I wasn't there, but I have to thank the CEC for taking charge, and managing to get this class outing to be successful. Another point the CEC should take note is that when planning these 'large-scale' outings, they should predict and come up with solutions if there are problems like the weather turns against the original itinerary, instead of wasting time thinking of what to do and resulting in people unable to go where they wanted to. The original plan went POOF because of time management problems.

How have I changed for the past 1 year?

For the past one year, I have learnt the importance of friendship and teamwork, which ensures the likelihood of being able to complete an assignment on time or to be able to hand on to each other such as not to be frightened under tense situations. Having tolerance and respect towards the thinkings and different mindsets of others so as to reduce the amount of friction between friends which would eventually wear out the tight bonds of friendship. Being able to have confidence in myself to speak up when I think there is a need so as to speak up my mind and let others know what I am thinking about to reduce misunderstandings. Lastly I have became bullish, in the sense that I think of the best out of the worst situations so as to make myself feel better.
What differences do I see in my friends?
My friends became more tolerant and respectful and allows others to speak their mind before stating their opinions in a civilised way. They also displayed the qualities of an SST student such as initiative, in which my friends would do a certain job or deed even though no one instructed them to do so. They also gave their friends social space with mutual respect, respecting their cultures also watching their language. Furthermore, they also practiced good team work allowing them to finish tasks on time. They also respected themselves by having time management and handing up homework on time.
What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?
Upon what I heard, this chalet has less disagreements and has a more organised schedule. This outing also allowed each and everyone of us to state our opinions before deciding on the majority of what to do next.As far as I know, we let down our grudges and formed cliques to "guard" the chalet and had fun all the way. Furthermore, through the shock of the potential break in, many of us decided to work together and stay together, this allowed us to be more bonded together. This chalets schedule was more managed and organised than the mid-term one as far as I know. We did at least 1/2 of what was stated in the schedule which is a good thing.

Lastly, I would like to thank Mr Yeo, the CEC and Shamus's parents and everyone in 101 that allowed this chalet to be a great success!

-Higher responsibility showed by the CEC
(although, i rate the class chalet overall better than the mid year outing there were still problems that persists. The CEC had not explored the facts that what happens if the activity could not be carried out. (i.e. the wild wild wet) So, i think this is what the everyone should improved on and not only the CEC.)

How have I changed for the past 1 year?

I have become more outspoken and have become more confident in my work and in my personality in general. I have changed from a lone ranger to a more social person.

What differences do I see in my friends?

My friends have become more confident, more comfortable with our classmates. They have become more outspoken and happy. Some have been affected by the school stress levels in a negative way.

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

Our chalet was bigger, longer, happier and more fun compared to our mid-year class outing. Our chalet was more organized and we had done some last minute improvisation which we had not done in our mid-year outing. Those are the major differences

Thank you everyone who has changed me and supported me in this year long s1-01 life of mine. Thank you for making this a huge success.

Thank you

1. I have learned to understand my classmates better and to respect others. I am also more confident in communicating with my friends.

2. They are more mature and understanding. They are more hardworking and committed to their goals.

3. We were more cooperative and things went more smoothly. It was more organised and well-planned compared to the mid-year outing, and there was less dispute.

They are more committed and they have learnt a lot about leadership and communication.

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

This outing was more well planned and there were lesser arguments. We could work together better compared to the previous outing.

☆laiX'ia said...

How have I changed for the past 1 year?

I have learnt to think from other people's point of stand, i.e different types of communicators have different expectations from a conversation


What differences do I see in my friends?

I have seen the different potentials in each one of us and I have come to known more about each individual through interactions and observations,

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

This chalet outing was more organised as we had more time to prepare for it. Although there was still rooms for improvement, I am truly grateful for the help and co0operation from Shamus's parents and Mr Yeo. Anyway, as long as we enjoyed ourselves during the outing, it was a success.

I am able to control myself and my temper better. I have also learned how to give into things so as to work better in a team. I could understand my friends more by observing.

What differences do I see in my friends?

My closer friends changed and the rest of my friends are able to work better with the others.

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

This time round, the class is able to work better as everybody were able to give in and co-operate. Although this time round the schedule is kind of messy, we still managed to have fun nonetheless.

There is less arguments although there is still some. We were a bit more cooperative.

I think this is one of the best years of my life and I do not hate anyone in the class. :)

How have I changed for the past 1 year?
I am more ‘close’ to my friends and i became more talkative and daring in everything, all thanks to them !

What differences do I see in my friends?
They are willing to interact and help me in whatever I am not sure or do not know. Their true self also starts to show, which is sometimes good and sometimes bad.

What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?
At least the CEC members could go into the trouble to post the directions to the venue and their arguments were settled in a shorter period of time. We were also more cooperative.

1. How have I changed for the past 1 year?

I learnt to respect others as all of us have flaws. Not everything will go along to your wishes. You have to take a step backwards sometimes,give in to others sometimes, for everything to be pleasant. I have more patience now and more gracious,maybe a little bit (Thanks to Mr. Glenn Wong's enlightenment)

2. What differences do I see in my friends?

(PERSONAL OPINIONS)They are more meaningful to me now. Everyone has blend in perfecetly well into the class. Be it the BEST in the class or the WORST in the class, they are now essential. Their jokes, their remarks, a small quarrel maybe, and their personalities — Its an undescribable good feeling.

3. What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

Things were definitly better but there was still one problem that still persists. It was one of the problems that had surfaced during the mid year outing – No well planned, didn't had a backup – The CEC were still unable to grasp everything under control. These are just some flaws that I thing can be change and should be change.

But, in overall the CEC did a great job. I apprecite them very much for their effort. In times to come I hope there will be lesser flaws and things can go perfect (which is not really possible in other words IMPOSSIBLE), and everything will be much more enjoyable!

1. How have I changed for the past 1 year?

I think I have not changed much, just that I have a few more close friends with whom I can share my thoughts, sentiments and secrets.

2. What differences do I see in my friends?

Some of my friends treat me better and we socialize even more, getting to know each other more in the process. The others do not care about my presence and in turn, I vowed to do the same to them.


3. What differences do I see in the year end chalet compared to the mid year outing?

I do not know any big differences, apart from the time constraints. The chalet programme seemed much more organized, albeit regimented.
