Hey there, Cadmusian/Visitor. I love this cranky family. I know you love us too :) Cadmus lives on. Forever.

Right from the start, we were strangers beginning on a new journey. we came from all walks of life, we wore different uniform, we all behaved differently. however, through these very fruitful 2 years, we shared tears, laughters, sweat and even blood. we went through countless thick and thin. now, we all cried for the same reason, we all cheered for the same reason and we all smiled for the same concern.
From orientation, we get to know the familar faces within us. we managed to broke the ice between us. we built up our class spirit and we unite as one. remember the time when we cheered at the top of our lungs, remember the times when during meals, we all squeezed into 4 pathetic benches. the identity we made, the best flag of the year, the class logo board... we kept up till today. those are our very first memory together.
then the inter-class challenge. we came up with the very unique cadmus fish on the wall - that symbolised us! the screwed wall at the back of the class, turn out to be the most outstanding and the wining features of 1C classroom. the very own cadmus door! the side wall with all our names. and even the wall with out palm prints. i swear they are all very nice! though we may only know each other just a little more than a month, we stayed back in school late to complete out class paintings. we stained our clothes, we had dirty bodies with paints but nevertheless, it is a very fun filled experience! indeed, our hardwork paid off, we won!!!
through all the events and celebrations held, we had fun, joy and laughters. no matter those games we played- won or lost, we simply were just to loving to each other. it was racial harmony day... sorry for making everyone find traditional costume. but nonetheless, we won the best dressed class. once again, we were the outstanding class, we outshined the other.
bits and pieces during the year i remembered. cadmus was always late for events. we felt embarassed but we still stayed together as a class. when others were late, we the cadmus was the earliest! that very morning, when the PA system didnt work, we were the earliest in the parade square while others did not know bell rang. why? this is because the very blur me mistaken someone's MP3 music as the music (: no matter what, we are always the special ones!
level camp... it as tiring, dreadful and all the bad comments surfaced. but it was the first time, we are with one another for the whole day and night. we sleep, eat, bathe and had fun together and we helped and supported each other. although we totally screwed up the campfire performance, we made a fool of ourselves, we shed those very precious tears together. to others, we may seems like fools and nuts, but in our hearts, we are forever darlings for one another. first night, i was down with my spreeing spree and fever. but thanks to all your support and encouragements, i managed to pull through. through the nights, some girls stayed up to chat. i vividly remember they were chatting about their lives, their family and every aspect of them (however, im trying very hard to get my sleep) we grew closer to one another, thats a undeniable fact.
we have had a few class outings, some was successful, some was a failure. the escape theme park incident, the sentosa incident. those were some dark and hard times we went through. although sometimes disputes spilled, we shall try our best to resolve it peacefully.
as the classchairperson of last year, i know i may not have done a fantastic job, i may be very demanding at times, and even to the extent of unreasonable. i would like to apologise if i have offended you guys. last year, i always say you guys did not cooperate with the reps and comm, giving them a very difficult times. BUT YOU GUYS PROVED ME WRONG! you guys can be the most wonderful people!
towards end of year one. we had interclass sports! the girls, did an excellent job, emerging champion; the boys, though did not win any but they stood strong and brave. in the hot sun we stood, we held banners, papers with encouragements. we cheered, we screamed! we shared the joy of wining.
the achievements we attained in 1C didnt end. we moved on to 2C together. we have grown physically, psychologically and mentally. i was touched to see everyone so bonded, so close to one another.
this year start off with a loud bang! with extreme and explore. explore we won numerous prizes, extreme we were simply fastabulous! we participated with high spirits, we ran with all our hearts and souls.
then 2007 peaked with level camp in pulau ubin. we definitely had fun! we sweat, we stink, we hurt our butts, we eat untasty food! we endured the pain but at the same times, enjoyed ourselves. that very night we gathered class by class. we were so emotional that we hugged each other and cry. this moved ms chua to tears too. im glad you guys missed my crazy singing!im sure, we were more than best, as compared to others. ms chua: "when is your best time during the camp?" shuqi: " it is now, seeing 2C so bonded together." it was simply very touching. we all did not want to go back to our chalet, we want to cherish more time together.
then come term 3 and term 4 - the busiest part. we came to realise that time we have together was running out. we have to treasure and fully make use of it. exams came near, we picked ourselves up and started mugging. we stayed back late together in school to revise and study. i know times were stressful, but it is something we had to go through. some people buck-ed up, some people struggled, and even some people face it with ease.
no matter how well you have done for your exams, or how badly you failed. DO NOT GIVE UP! do not just stop at the level you are at, keep crawling to higher level. although it may be a difficult journey uphill, we have to carry on! after those struggles, we will see sunshine and rainbow waiting for us at the end. let us all celebrate and enjoy as we all had pulled through.
time flies and now, we already have ended our post exam activities. those talks were sianned, we endured together. those presentations were sianned too, we try our best to sneak out of the LTs. inline skating was challenging for some people. but, we extend our hands and hearts to every of us. we helped and supported one another. we fell down many times, but we pick ourselves up! from a person who cant skate, to someone who can already skate, it is all thanks to the hands and helps of 2C. hip hop(e) dance and kick boxing was a total boredom and sleepy session! we tried out best to stand up. and also, we laughed and laughed and laughed (for some reasons i you know) and were threaten to go up the stage by the instructors.
we cried for half a day on the very last day (today) we were late again. and came in with red face, wet eyes and everything. we invited looks from people. i think, they know the reasons behind - WE ARE TOO BONDED, WE CANT BEAR TO SEPERATE and many other reasons. we cried non stop... before the start, to after the end.
WE ARE THE BEST CLASS OF 2007! we won the class league. we well deserved it! we work hard towards it, we unite as one to achieve it, we all played a part and contributed in achieving this!
we would like to thank all the teachers, who provided us with guidance and knowledge and showered us with love and care. without them, our 2 fruitful would not have made possible.
i would like to thank all cadmusian, for all you have done and contributed. for all laughter and joy each of us brought into the class. and last but not least, for being such excellent, fantastic, wonderful, extraordinary friends! you guys have played a important part of my life...
THIS LOVE WILL CARRY ON! we will never end our relationship! happiness, joy, euphoria, blessedness, exhilaration, jubilation, sadness, anguish, grief, melanchol, emo-ness, anger, annoyance, disappointment AND ALL EXPRESSION WE SHARED! we will never forget. we shall always keep it as memory in a corner of our brain. and play it like a film as and when and always fo life. ten years down the road twenty years after today, we will still be friends. we will still greet each other in school and on streets.
im sure THIS are just words and texts. it cant describe what we are feeling now.the reminiscence, the nostalgic and the wistful, long yearning to return to the past!
I LOVE ALL OF YOU CADMUSIAN! EVERY SINGLE GIRL, AND BOY. WE SHALL STAY HEART TO HEART! NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHAT GENDER, OR WHATEVER, I WILL FOREVER LOVE YOU, AND MISS YOU!
REMEMBER THIS: ONCE A CADMUSIAN, ALWAYS A CADMUSIAN.
