We are indeed honoured and happy to join the Pasir Ris residents to celebrate this festival. The students in the CCAs put up a memorable performance, showcasing their focus and discipline in their respective martial arts forms. Through the performances, we joyfully ushered in the prosperous year of the Rabbit.
Chinese New Year Celebrations 2023
On 20 January, TMJC ushered in the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit with celebratory activities, revolving around the theme of “Return of Spring and A New Year of Vitality”.
The programme started with CGs displaying their creativity
by making CNY handicraft using red packets. The handicraft consisted of
lanterns, firecrackers and new year greeting cards which were displayed along
the study area outside the General Office, adding cheer to the festive mood.
Students also watched a student-directed short film produced by the Citizenship Education Committee, highlighting the different symbolic meanings of Rabbit in Asian countries. This was followed by an inter-CG Kahoot Quiz to heighten students’ awareness of the citizenship messages behind the film.
The second segment of the programme gathered all teachers and students in the Hall for a kaleidoscope of performances put up by various CCA groups. Students from the Chinese Orchestra, Choir, Modern Dance, Wushu and Taekwondo staged performances of celebratory music, songs, dance and martial arts, heightening the festive cheer. Teachers Ms Ann Koh and Mr Wong Hoe Sing also added to the festive cheer with their live song performances. As part of the Lunar New Year tradition, the student leaders presented mandarin oranges to our school leaders and staff to express their gratitude and appreciation.
The final segment of our Chinese New Year celebrations ended on a high note as a TMJC family with a mass Lo-Hei session. Our teachers also brought their little ones along to share in this joyous festive celebration!
A Happy and Blessed Chinese New Year to everyone!
Basic ECG Advising Skills Workshop
On 18 January 2023, our TMJC teachers attended a Basic ECG Advising Workshop. The workshop seeks to further enhance teachers' competencies in ECG advising.

The workshop equips teachers with skills to effectively engage students in ECG conversations through customised case discussions, facilitated by ECG Counsellors.

TMJC Open House 2023
On 13 January 2023, TMJC held our first post
COVID-19 Open House to welcome visitors.
TM Wonderland, the theme for Open House 2023, aimed to create unique experiences for visitors by infusing magical, whimsical elements into our programmes and activities.
Our Principal, Mr Sin Kim Ho, provided insight into the JC curriculum that enabled our visitors to gain a deeper understanding of their new and exciting journey ahead.
The subject talks and booths set up by our dedicated staff gave prospective students a glimpse of our TMJC programmes.
In addition, our committed students came together to set up informative CCA booths and put together rousing performances during the CCA showcase, Opening and Closing ceremonies. It was indeed a magical day where visitors experienced our strong College spirit and dynamic culture.
TM Wonderland ended memorably with a group shot of our staff, students and visitors at the College hall to commemorate this significant day.
Thank you for being a part of TM Wonderland!
First Day of School at Tampines Meridian Junior College 2023
On 9 January 2023, TMJC welcomed our students back to College with a series of “Back-to-School” activities to reconnect with their friends and teachers.
The “Back-to-School” programme began with an opening address by our new Principal, Mr Sin Kim Ho. As a symbolic gesture of appreciation and care, the 5th TMSC President, Gerrard Poh, led the TMSC and JC2 CG leaders to present apples to the school leaders, teachers and support staff.
One of the highlights of the day was the “Staff vs Student Challenge” where students from 5 different Houses held friendly competitions with their teachers in various activities. This was a great opportunity for students to catch their teachers in action outside the classroom.
The House Captains teamed up with the OGLs to lead in the House cheers to bring further excitement during the games. This was followed by a communal tea break provided by the College for the students to bond with their Civics Tutors and classmates.
After the tea break, the CG leaders led the class in some interesting class bonding activities.
The JC2 cohort won the “Staff vs Student Challenge” for the first time after 5 years. Our Principal, Mr Sin, presented the Challenge Trophy to Gerrard Poh who represented the students.
The programme ended with the whole College coming together to prepare for the upcoming Open House to showcase the dynamic spirit of the College. Here’s to a great year ahead!
