AC Games, an annual affair in ACJC akin to an inter-class sports day, which was organised with the purpose of letting J1s, unwind and relax after completing the promotional examinations. This year, it was meticulously planned out and successfully executed by the 43rd Students’ Council. This year’s theme was Time Travel, the games organized aimed to transported students to different time periods in history.
Day One of AC Games saw classes competing in games such as Frisbee, Captain’s ball and Dodgeball. Students also got the opportunity to participate in more creative games such as Human Chess, Math Dog and Bone and Chair SPS (scissor-paper-stone). This was carried out in a round robin fashion for all the J1s to be given the opportunity to put their intellectual and atheletic gifts to good use.
The Science and Mathematics Council also organised a game of their own, where students were challenged to build and launch a ‘rocket’ of their very own.
Despite the erratic weather on Day 1, the J1s had an exciting time either playing against their fellow schoolmates or, cheering for their classmates who were competing to win points for their respective classes.
The second day had a drier weather, a big difference from the unpredictable weather on the first day. Games played on Day Two were less intense and shorter, a welcoming fact for many who were exhausted from the previous day’s activities. Games included the Mass Games titled: Mission 2018, Freeze and Melt and What’s the Time Mr Wolf.
The two days of fun and games ended with an enthusiastic school cheer session, which brought back Orientation memories for many of the J1s. There was also a souvenir distribution for all students and prize presentation where 1SB3 come out on top and clinched the top spot.
Overall, AC Games provided the Class of 2019 with the chance to build class spirit and bond as a cohort. Although the two days are over, the relationships and team spirit fostered is something to be treasured. We would also like to thank the Science and Math Council, Photographic Society, the First Aiders, Media Resource Crew and last but not least the 43rd Students’ Council, for making this event possible.
