Making the article more neutral[edit]

The article was obviously written as an advertisement, like it was copied out of the school brochure. I've tried to make the tone more neutral by cutting out unnecessary parts, but many sections are in desperate need of love, especially the section on Achievements. Anyone with solid information on the school's past principals and CCA achievements, please contribute! - Ngch89 (talk) 15:35, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Removed invalid and un-cited statement[edit]

I have taken out the part on AJC being a leading academic institution since they have dropped to 10th out of 19 in national ranking by 2014. [1]


Neutrality of sections[edit]

Hi I have placed these 2 sections here for discussion, on whether they can be further neutralised and made relevant. It seems that these items are directly placed in the article without filtering. Lyg 2001 (talk) 10:05, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

CCA achievements[edit]

The Basketball team has been successful since its formation in the mid-1980s, and is successful in the National 'A' Division. The Boys' team achieved a historical three-peat, winning the Championship in 1987, 1988 and 1989. It remained in the national top four for ten consecutive years from 1999 to 2008, with four National Final appearances in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. Point guard Tee Chai Sim was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament in 2012. Most recently, the team achieved a National 3rd placing in 2016. The Volleyball team is similarly dominant in the National 'A' Division. The Boys' team won the Championship in 2006, and made a finals appearance alongside the Girls' team in 2007. Both teams have hence come up in top four positions since the 2008 Championships and recently, the Boys' team achieved a 2nd in the 2011 Championships. The Wushu team has consistently been ranked in the top four positions for the National Inter-School Wushu Championships. In 2008, the Boys' team came in 3rd, while the Girls' team came in 4th. In 2011, both teams came in 4th in the championships. The Shooting team has frequently been awarded top four positions in Inter-School Pistol and Air Rifle Shooting Competitions. In 2011, the team attained 2nd and 3rd positions in various Inter-School team competitions and 1st and 2nd positions in various Inter-School individual competitions. StAJeWorks, the English drama group, received Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Gold Awards in 2006 and 2008 for its performances of 'X-Country' and 'Offering', respectively. Both plays were devised with the performers and written by Bryan Tan, an alumnus who is a playwright and director. The group's drama instructor is Mohamed Fita Helmi, an actor, director and lighting designer.  [citation needed] The Chinese Orchestra is led by its conductor, Ng Seng Hong. 2007 marked the 4th consecutive year that the Chinese Orchestra received an SYF Gold Award, and in 2009, it received an SYF Gold with Honours Award. The Symphonic Band achieved 2nd place in the NBC Open Category in 2008, and received an SYF Gold with Honours Award in 2009. The Debating and Oratorical Society (AJDOS) has been ranked in the top eight schools since 2007 in the core national debating championships (MOE Invitational Debating Championship, formerly known as JCDCs). The Tamil Literary Debate Drama Society (TLDDS) is an Indian Cultural Society participating in SYF Indian Dance, SYF Tamil Drama and Inter JC/CI Tamil Debate competitions and performing exceptionally well in them also. It won Gold with Honours for SYF Indian Dance in 2011 with 2nd Runners Up for Debate as well. It holds a biennial, inter-jc/ci competition, Agni which showcases Dance, Impersonation and Singing.
