For those who have completed the updated diary, Well Done!! Just placed them in my pigeon hole.

For the others who are still working on it, I will extend the dateline to 20th October, after the exams and marking day. Since I have given you a longer period to complete, I expect you to record all of your involvement. If you are facing any difficulties, just approach me.

How to fill up the NYAA Diary:

Reflect on activities, record your thoughts and feelings as well as what you have learnt in the NYAA diary.

Example 1 (Service):
During the Earth Hour Event, I was in the Logistics
group and I learnt many things. Such things included values that are very useful in our daily lives. One of them was the value of respect.

Respect was a very important value being shown throughout the whole 9 hours in the event. Without respect, I would not have been able to listen to orders by the seniors-in-charge.

Without respect, co-operation can be a good alternative that I have used throughout the event too. Being in a team will help to reduce the time needed to keep things going, especially when we need to hold an important event, for the public.

Working as a team too can be a very fun thing to do. I learnt that it is also important for us to enjoy ourselves and not feel lonely throughout the event.

Reflection by: Syazwan (2E2)

Example 2: (Service)
After the Earth Hour event, I learnt that just one hour can make a difference and help saved electricity if everyone contributes. During the event, I thought of an idea of making a light stick ball that can be thrown to the crowd when the singer sang 'We are the world'. The idea was a success and I was happy. I hope they get my message of the ball representing Earth.

Everything was fine until the band performance. The pianist was injured due to hitting the ceiling when it was moving in the backstage storage room. Luckily the teachers and organizers were there to assist and called for an ambulance to send her to the hospital asap.

From this incident, I have also learnt that accidents can happen at any time and we can prevent by being careful.

Reflection by: Yong Ting (2E1)


Do include other items which are not listed as above if you have any.

Please submit the completed NYAA diary to Ms Ahny latest by Monday, 4 October 2010 (you have 12 days to complete) and put it in her pigeon hole.

1st Photography Assignment for this term for photography members

Photography members do take note. Your assignment for this week is "Life as a Damaiian". Do submit 2 of your best shots to the Media Club Forum in Ask&Learn by this coming Friday. I will also be joining you for your photosubmissions. You just need to click on "Forum" after you login to the school's ask&learn portal where you can find the "Media Club Forum".

You should be able to do this assignment as this is what you do day in day out. Take meaningful and interesting pictures of you and your friend's life as a Damaiian.

Submission is compulsory for ALL members in the Photography Track. Borrow a camera from your friends and family members to take the pictures. If you do not do so, I take it that you are not interested in the photography track and wish to change to AV or some other CCA. 
Submission is this coming Saturday 12pm (Singapore Time) online.

This will be a weekly project for all of you photography track members. Look out for the next assignment next week in the forum.

Mr Lam

Photography track updates by Mr Lam

Members in the photography track take note. You guys (and gals) have been taking life rather easy this few months. Some of you do not turn up for CCA, do not take part in competitions and simply tell everyone that you are in photography and there are not enough School cameras to go round so you cannot take pictures.



Starting next Monday, this will be good news for you (and the rest of the photography track members)... New criterion for being a member of the Photography Track.


1) All Photography track members must have a personal camera. The personal camera can be a DSLR, a compact camera or even a handphone camera. But the camera should be capable of taking pictures that you can print up to 5R prints at least. (i.e. 4-5 megapixels at least)


2) All photography track member must get for themselves the following items:


    a. A thumb drive (size up to you) for storing and editing personal photographs.


    b. A SD card for storing photographs taken using the school’s camera. (you do not need this
        if you are using your own camera)



3) All Photography track members must take part and submit weekly photographs taken based on the theme given every week. Submission is done online at the school’s Ask&Learn Forum pages. Members must submit 2 of their best shots weekly. These shots will be moderated and discussed by teachers and fellow students. These can also be used for future photography competition (inter-school or international). You may get CCA points for participating and winning in such competitions.

4) There will be a Inter-School competition “Bedok Reservoir” which is organized by our school. All Damai Photography members must participate. Please let the other members know about this. You can take scenery pictures or interesting people or places and activities around Bedok Reservoir area.

Deadline for submission is on the first Friday of Term 4. (you have one week holiday break to select and photoshop the pictures for submission)

Many of you missed the meeting on Thursday cos apparently Raj made some wrong announcements.

Also,the duty list is out. Please check for your name. If your friend;s not aware of it,please take the initiative to tell them. Attire and discipline,thats all we need. Simple enough right.

Next,the SECONDARY 4.

I'm going to roughly type out whats going to happen the next 3 months for each track:

Robotics - Training/Building/Programming
AV - Clean up & Responsibility

In case you're not informed. Each member has to pay 6 bucks each term to club fund. So if you have not done so,please do it asap. We don't want to be loan sharks.

Entries for SYPA 2010

Hi all,
Entries for the SYPA 2010 are coming in. I have been rushed to quickly send the photographs for printing. Here's the update.

1) So far, members who are participating are Xue Li, Jia Ning, Bilson, Yu Zhou, Lynn. (All of you participating already earned 1 participating CCA point by doing so. :-)  )

2) Photographs have been sent out for printing. Some have some back.

3) Most of the shops (including Popular) have ran out of mounting boards. I managed to book 20 pieces of the A2 white mounting boards but I can only collect them from Popular Simei on Thursday afternoon.

4) I need the students participating to write some comments on the photographs they are submitting for competition. The comments should be about 2 lines and should tell us where the picture was taken and why was it taken. These comments will be pasted at the back of the mounting boards before submitting on Friday.

5) I also need the 5 students to come down on Thursday afternoon at 3pm to mount their photos onto the mounting boards and to write down and paste the comments onto the back of each board.

6) These mounted photographs together with the entry forms MUST be delivered to SAFRA Mount Faber on Friday afternoon. So I need all your help in making sure point 3, 4 and 5 are done.

Thanks!
Mr Lam

Term 2 Duty List

Update on NYAA

Dear NYAA participants,

Section: Skills

To prepare you for the New South Wales (NSW) IT Skills Competition on 13 April 2010, there will be trainings every Monday and Thursday starting from Monday, 29 March 2010 from 3.00 to 3.30pm in Computer Lab 4 conducted by Mr. Johnny Ho.

Attendance will be taken.

Section: Service

Members who attended the Earth Hour last Saturday, please reflect on the event – what was done, share your thoughts and feelings, what you have learnt from it. Since you have not received your Award Diary at this moment, please write down on a foolscap paper. There are no limitations to the number of words.

Submit your reflections to me for checking by next Monday, 5 April 2010. You have the whole week to do and therefore, I don’t wish to chase after you as all of you are already in Sec 2 and I know you are independent and initiative.

Members who did not attended the Earth Hour, do not worry. You can use PCIP and record down your learning points. If you have any doubts, please see me for clarification.
