Weekly Programs

There are many programes that go on weekly such as FUN(find your niche) friday, Talent Tuesday,Record Breaking Thursday.

During Talent Tuesday, the students can do anything to their talent before assembly, in the school shaw auditorum.(conducted by teachers) Showcase Friday brings about innovation in the students, anyone can Busk for money, any way, anyhow.

The programs are not really active now as the school has changed their style of assembly. Showcase Friday happens now only once a month.

Facilities

ACS (Junior) has a total of 38 classrooms. Most of the 38 classrooms are air-conditioned as now they are constructing new developments nearby. ACS (Junior) follows the system where students are based in a classroom and the teachers move from class to class. The school also has four computer laboratories where the teachers can take the students to as supplement to their lessons. There are two music rooms just outside the main teaching block. Next to the music rooms, there are rooms which the teachers and students refer to as "Containers" They are used for supplementary or remedial lessons after school hours. A small room called "The Den" is located near the music rooms for prayer meetings or other activities.

Prefectorial Board

The prefectorial board is elected by the teaching and administrations staff every year and are formally appointed during Prefects Investiture Day. The Prefectorial Board is made up by members of the Council, AM prefects (Primary 5 & 6), PM prefects (Primary 4) and PM trainee prefects (Primary 3). The head prefect is Choy Zhen Han, Augustine and the deputy head prefects are Chew Chia Shao Yuan and Jonathan Loke Teng Fai.

Odyssey Of The Mind

Odyssey of the Mind is the biggest non-curricular acctivity that has been going on in the school. Every year since 2003, the school sends numerous teams to compete in 5 different problems at national standard. If they get through, they will compete at a university in the USA for the world champion's title, the top 10 title and the prestigious Ranatra Fusca Creativity award. The world champion's title was clinched in 2007 and the Ranatra Fusca award was clinched by the 2003 pioneer team.

All 7 members of the teams have to do the props, skit, vehicle and balsa structure by themselves. This way, the students learn more as they have to think of the solution themselves. All the coaches, parents and teachers abide the Odyssey of the Mind rules of 'no telling, only hinting'.

Occasionally, there is some mentoring from their seniors who visit them frequently. Their seniors mostly come from ACS (Barker Road). This act of very strong brotherliness was initiated in 2008, between ACS (BR), ACS (Junior) and ACJC.
