It is a class. It is awesome. The End.

2014 Term 2

Contrary to the top, this class is more than awesome. In 2014 Term 2 the teacher was Ismail and the TA Jeff(rey). During Evening studies Jeff would teach Counter Strike and League to all the students and he loves KPOP. Ismail even learned some counter strike from him. After Jeff celebrated his 21st birthday at cam this year, he went drinking and would sometimes drive RC Groups on their groupp nights to the laser tad/bowling placing. Jeff would rank 1st for both activities. His bowling scores surpased one hundred. Also in the arcade, he would play this one punching game where he got the high score of over 200. This class has bred 1 known couple- Harrison and Eleanor.
