Fac CIP 'SAW' Such A Waste 2010

hello artemis! all the information you need for SAW 2010 HERE

location: choa chu kang residential areas (27th feb)/ sembawang areas (6th march)
time: assemble by 7 30am at the area outside auditorium (buses will not wait for you so don't be late!)
for those who are going there straight: meet at 8 30 at your respective venues (607/513A) passed down by your CT reps!

attire: faculty CIP shirt + longs/jeans/(for berms, knees must be covered) + proper shoes (no sandals/slippers/bare feet).
activity: item collection across 7000 units in total. gonna be a lot of work waiting :D

what to do:

1. collect items from the units allocated to your class

2. carry them to the collection points assigned for you

simple! but it'll be alot of hard work so be prepared!!


note:

1. bring along a change of shirt if you pespire :)

2. lunch will be provided, there will be water bottles available but do bring your own as one bottle may not be enough

3. ask the residents NICELY for unwanted items. we only collect paper, cardboard, cloth etc. tell them that they can place other items in the green plastic bags provided by NEA

4. bring the items to the right collection point! Approach the fac comm member attached to your class if you are unsure.

5. DON'T BE LATE!!:) especially those who are going down yourselves

6. After completing your tasks, report back to Headquarters to take attendance (important)

here's the map with the blocks that we're going to :)

*Headquarters is at the pavilion next to block 607
here are some photos of last yr's CIP, to let you have an idea what's CIP all about :)

WAR GAMES AFTERMATH

Post-POP

HEY ARTEMIS!

it's only been one and a half weeks since we first met you at the fac comm intro last wednesday, and 'how time flies' can't fully describe how fast the week zoomed past. War games came and went, and with enthusiasm you guys arrived at the central plaza for your first ever FAC DANCE SESSION! perhaps you couldn't see our moves, perhaps you couldn't hear our voices, but the patience and support you guys showed gave us the confidence to carry on. In the days to come you guys danced and left your mark as ONE ARTEMIS in almost every corner of the school: the hall, the inner plaza, the central plaza, area outside auditorium, 天堂, banner painting area, the left wing, the right wing, (and i believe i saw a few artemisians dancing in the squash courts one morning :D) Every time you did the moves and shouted the chants, you showed the rest of hwachong what the ARTEMIS SPIRIT is. YOU are the ones that shape artemis, and YOU are the ones who make the difference. To be honest we couldn't have asked for a more awesome batch of juniors than you guys. Staying back everyday after school to come for dance pracs, never getting tired of doing the dance again and again and again and again, starting dance pracs on your own even before the dance ics get there..your energy and enthusiasm really rubs off one another and that passion really shows in the dancing!

Even though we didn't win the dance comp this year, I'm sure all of you had LOADS OF FUN learning the dance and doing the moves with your class and the faculty. And that is what's most important: to forge new bonds, strengthen old ones and enjoy every single moment of the time spent with ARTEMIS. Winning isn't everything, to have the memory of CHEERING, JUMPING, AND DANCING with your faculty mates etched in your minds forever is a much more precious thing to behold.

JUNIORS, YOU'VE DONE US PROUD, for putting in your 1000% for artemis and showing us what being coolblue artemisians really mean.

POP is officially over, but the spirit of ARTEMIS never ends.

ONE HEART. ONE SPIRIT. ONE ARTEMIS.

WHOO YEA!~ Alright, first of all, formation for POP is as above!
Details:
1) Each class should form 2 columns, 1 for guys, 1 for girls, except S61 and S6D who have to spread out. (sorry, this is due to the space constraints of central plaza T_T)
2) There will be Artemisian markings on the floor to watch out for! (focus on the blue ones! dun get distracted by any yellow, red or green markings!)
3) FacComm members will facilitate the alignments~

4) MOST IMPORTANTLY, there is rehearsal at central plaza Tomorrow from 2pm-2.30pm! Everyone please do try your best to come okay! It would be good also if y'all can change into a shirt for this rehearsal. ^^

just for your information, classes with complementing gender ratios are put near each other, so y'all can randomly find partners from the classes around urs! =D

AND! Here's the order for The Dance on POP:
Athena --> Apollo --> ARTEMIS --> Ares

Last piece of important information:
Our FINAL practice session tomorrow will be at Banner Painting Area/Amphitheatre after your CT session until... AS LATE AS YOU WANT!

you guys have went through so much for the past 2 weeks, and you all have shown that

The way we fought and defended our tower during WARGAMES
All the class flags and hilarious performances

A BIG thankyou for your effort in throwing water bombs, painting the class flags and preparing for class performances.
