ST ANDREW'S CELEBRATES "ALL-ROUNDER" OF THE 2018 GCE A-LEVEL EXAMINATIONS!


A total of 655 students sat for the examinations held in Nov 2018 with 96.3% of them achieving at least 3H2 passes including GP.  

We are proud of ALL our students. While we cannot highlight them all we have chosen these Saints below as the epitomes of the Saint Spirit and student. They have done us proud not just with their results but because they represent the very best qualities of exemplary Saints demonstrating their ability to balance both academics and co-curricular activities.

Tan Si Min, Odele (17A02) was an all-rounded Saint who pursued excellence in all that she did. As President of the 40th Student Council, she spearheaded the conceptualisation and execution of many College events such as Orientation, Open House, and ChrySAlis, a leadership summit which welcomes participants from the Anglican primary and secondary schools as well. Odele displayed humility and patience in her role as the President, where she was level-headed in stressful situations and showed understanding and objectivity in handling diverse opinions and needs of the Council. An effective communicator, Odele was also the moderator for various dialogues in College events such as ChrySAlis 2017 for Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, and the SAJC Minister Dialogue with Ms Grace Fu. For her outstanding contributions to the College, Odele was awarded the Service Award in 2018. Not only did she excel in her co-curricular activities, Odele was also committed to achieving academic excellence. Her dedication to her studies was evident in how she consistently made it on the Honour Roll for most of the internal examinations throughout her two years in SAJC. On top of that, she also received the SAJC Arts Faculty Prize, the Wong Tim Wah Scholarship for Leadership, and Gold Award for the Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition. Odele has clearly demonstrated that it is possible to balance academics with a healthy co-curricular schedule and is a fine example of an all-rounded Saint, achieving straight As in her H2 subjects (Geography, Economics, and Mathematics), with Chemistry (A), General Paper (B) and Project Work (A) at H1 level.

Haney Herlina Bte Hardiyanto (17S10) was an all-rounded Saint who pursued excellence in all that she did. She was also a role model for her peers whom they relied on as a selfless and reliable friend who was always forthcoming in helping others. As the Class Representative in 2017 and Assistant Class Representative in 2018, she demonstrated genuine care and concern for her classmates’ well-being. Haney also displayed an exceptional sense of tenacity and determination to strive for the goals she set for herself regardless of the challenges she faced. Her unyielding efforts in her academic work paid off when she received a Commendation Award from the College for the JC2 Preliminary Examination in 2018. Apart from her stellar academic performance, Haney was also involved in various Community Involvement Projects (CIP) like the ‘Silver Alliance’ project in 2017 where she helped to clean the houses of the elderlies in the Kim Seng housing estate and even extended her friendship to them through her interaction with them. Haney was also an active canoeist as she represented the College in the National Junior Canoe Sprint Championships and National Schools Canoeing Championships in 2018.

As a result of her tenacity, she was awarded the Education Merit Bursary in 2017 for being amongst the top ten percentile of the cohort.
