FUTURE PROBLEM SOLVING COMPETITION
Four Shuqunites entered a Future Problem Solving Competition on 15th August 2015. The theme for the competition was Propaganda - The world of tomorrow depends on the creativity of today’s youth to create a better tomorrow.
To help our students prepare for the gruelling 2-hour competition that was held in Raffles Girls' School, the school conducted several training sessions beforehand, preparing them using the six-steps strategy to generate, evaluate and decide on a solution based on a futuristic scenario. The trainings tapped on the creativity and tenacity of our students so they would be able to apply the skills they had acquired in the Secondary 3 Humanities Camp that was conducted during Week 10 of Term 2.
The final competition was intense. Many top schools were in attendance, but our students did the school proud as they completed the various FPSP sections in the allocated time. In the end it was a memorable experience for our school’s representatives.
Ultimate Frisbee – JWSS Interschool Frisbee Tournament
The Ultimate Frisbee team took part in a tournament on Saturday, 15th August 2015 at Jurong West Secondary School. The boys and girls team played against 7 other schools in a 5-a-side team competition.
The entire team was present to support and cheer for both the Shuqun Boys and Girls teams throughout the various matches in the competition.
We are pleased to announce that the Boys team has emerged Champions in their category as a result of their hard work and dedication during the weeks leading up to the event. The Girls team fought valiantly but were eliminated in the group stage as the competition was very stiff.
We appreciate the efforts of Coach Jonathan Poh, as he took time off his busy schedule to help out the players between the various matches.
Through the event, the students learnt the importance of team work and resilience. The team will be looking forward to the next event, West Zone Schools Frisbee Carnival 2015, taking place later this year.
