A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

Alas, it's July already and we're now well into the academic year! It seems like only yesterday I took my first step into school as a senior, ready to take on all the challenges of my final year and to cherish the memories 2013 would bring. Yes, it certainly has been a challenging year! Being a Cempakan, one's schedule is never empty and you're constantly on your toes- participating in various school events,  studying for topical tests, taking part in sports, or even the occasional writing for school newsletters. As a senior, I feel the onerous brunt of the workload even more heavily as I try to juggle my responsibilities and stretch my time to its maximum capacity.

From the very beginning of the year, Cempakans got down to business and busied themselves with the array of activities to do around school, starting with none other than the Launch Pad project, which was  introduced just last year. Furthermore, for the first time ever, Cempaka held an Appreciation Day assembly in May, where students paid tribute to our wonderful teachers and loving mothers who have done so much to ensure we receive a holistic education. In fact, if one were to just glance at the school calendar for the lineup of events, you might scarcely be able to believe that so much can really be accomplished in the timespan of less than a year. 

Yet, here we are taught that 'Nothing is Impossible', and so we will continue to live, sleep and dream by our mantra. 2013 promises even more events, surprises and excitement as the Cempakan community gears up to celebrate a very special year- the 30th anniversary of Cempaka. It will undoubtedly be a year-long celebration to commemorate the marvelous journey we've all been on and travelled together, mile by mile. It is a year full of remarkable milestones, of commemorations, celebration and accomplishment. Yet, after all these years, we must not rest on our laurels but aspire to aim even further and soar even higher.

Thus, as the year passes by and the days come and go, I can only say 'bring it on!' to whatever the future has in store for me and the rest of us. To all Cempakans, always find support in each other and take the time to rounden yourself through the assortment of activities that will doubtlessly come your way during your time here. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavours, dear reader, and please, take your time to browse through the plethora of articles our wonderful writers have contributed for this issue.

Best regards,
Jamie Kok Yixin
