Assalamualaikum. Had a great fun today celebrating Teacher's Day at both Innova Junior College and Northbrooks Secondary School. Yup, I manage to go back to Northbrooks despite of the late dismissal just now. There was a vast change in Northbrooks. It is so much livelier now with the intricate colours mixture, graffiti wall, the rock wall, televisions almost everywhere and so much more. I have to compliment the new Principal for this. Well done! Unlike the past few years, it had been a tradition for my friends to return to Yishun Primary School which sadly all of us have to amiss it this time round. Anyway, most of our teachers have either retired or transferred to another school.
At Innova, the day started well with the ACES dance participated
by all the students and not forgetting the teachers, Principal and Vice-principal, who danced so well. Bravo! Later at around 8.30, we moved on to a more exciting moment which is the Basketball Tournament : Teachers vs. Students. Everybody cheered their lungs out and the limelight went to the Teachers who won the tournament. Next on the agenda list was the Class Party. We had to deal with a quandary first as our cg is assigned with no learning studio as our home-room. Sad. Nevertheless, Mr. Teo save the mood and allow us to use the Physics Lab. Yeah! It was a blessing in disguise. We got a large room with water taps and sinks… Great yeah! The day ended with a Teacher's Day Concert in the canteen. Great!
Back in Northbrooks at 12.30 p.m. We took a taxi as we did not want to be late and miss the teachers. Ivan, Kenneth, Lester, Leonard and Wei Lun were already there. Gosh! Got to know the Meridian Junior College students celebrated Teacher’s Day on Monday and got a day off on Wednesday and this means that they got 2 days of holiday for Teacher's Day. Lucky people. The teachers were having fun playing games when we arrived. Little that I know the teachers are just like us. They cheered for their peers and jump upon happiness. Hahaha! They ended the game with Line Dance. So fun. After so long, even though Vic and I are still in the same school, just now was the first time we "really" talk to each other after we moved on to tertiary education.
7.00 p.m. I went to MediaCorp TV12 building located along the
Prince Edward Road for the photoshoot session. Met the other debaters who are going for Titian Minda. Anita and Syahidah are so friendly. I was pretty scared at first if they were just stuck up as some debaters who have a lot of experience. Anita was the overall best speakers for Bahas 4PM 2001 and Syahidah was the best speaker for year 2003-04 and both of them already went for Titian Minda in the previous years. They are very amiable people with pleasing demeanour. Hope to see them soon!
