Fox Hunting 23/3

We did Fox Hunting today with our Sec 2 and 1s, giving them a task to find 5 items around the school. It was good that they didn't give in at first, refusing to hear any of the hints I'm giving them. Every time they walked past the hiding spot, I can't help but chuckle, confusing them as they tried to look around the area for it. Many times I almost gave in, since it was right there, in an extremely easy to find a spot as well! Looking at them was fun as one of them just gave up and sat down in the middle of the grass field, lying down. Overall, I guess I must still commend them for not giving up until the last minute, especially that hilarious reaction that it was so close to them after the time was up.

Sun viewing Session





Too bad, it isn't. Before you say anything else to rebut me, I can tell you that I had seen the Sun myself today. In reality, the Sun is actually red, and barely yellow, in contrast to what to what most believe. The giant fireball in the sky isn't that all scary(Only if you're protected by dozens of filters, of course). How do I feel about this? Well, it IS my first time looking at the Sun through a telescope after all, so this was new for me. I would surely love to see the Sun again if I get the chance to, for it's the life source of this planet, after all.

Foxhunting

My first foxhunting experience ever.

Our group was handed a mega antenna, which is used to detect the FOX[Not really, it's a radio]. If there's one thing to be improved on the fox hunter, is that the radio signal was SO strong, that wherever we went, we were forced to listen to the same signal beeps over and over. Eventually, we gave up and asked the FOX himself to lead us to his 'hole'. I was very pleased with the overall experience, however. Everyone looked out for each other and no one complained about the pain to find the radio. Despite how tiring it was during the test, I'm certainly looking forward to the main event soon. I feel that fox hunting is an excellent way to promote comradeship, supporting each other through this activity.

New Year, Same Club [2018]

So here I am, on my birthday, 5 Jan 2018, Astro club SST.

I was really excited to come back here, knowing how I will meet all my friends in the club again. Despite not being in the same class, we are all extremely close to each other. I love how everyone hasn't changed over the holidays, and I really enjoy Mr Tan's presence here. He always seems to loosen up the atmosphere, and with my schoolmates all around me, I wouldn't care less that it was a long day. Though I do wish that this year's recruitment would be extremely successful, and hope to gain a lot of new Sec 1s(Hehe😤). It's always fun watching them first coming to our club, and learning together with us.

Alright, I will make the best out of this year, promised!


Astrigue 2017

Us Gucci Gang
Astrigue was one of the most memorable experience I had in 2017. I remember it clearly that we were sitting there, listening and cheering for our school. The best part in my opinion was the final stages of the questionnaires. It felt so intense that everyone was glued to the scoreboard, waiting for a change in the tide. Overall, despite losing, we have gotten closer to each other.

RI Astronite 2017

RI Astronite was an enjoyable experience for all of us. We were treated warmly by the RI students and made comfortable. The talk was interactive and creative, especially the part with the 'Captains' and 'Cruizing through space'. They've done their research well, and most of us were able to understand what they were actually talking about during the talk. When it was over, we were led to their arsenal of telescopes. We spent the rest of the time talking with students from other schools, and I felt that the Astronite was successful in general.

Planning Day 2016

On Planning Day,we worked on a Google Sheet and planned out activities for next year. Some of us suggested watching movies, stargazing sessions and overseas trips. I suggested watching more movies in the Sheet. If only we could plan more, I can't wait to be a senior so I can be in charge with more things.
