Dear Parents, Sorry to disappoint you. There is no update on your child's activity today. No news actually means good news. I remembered receiving 11 phone calls from the students during the first home-stay, telling me that they wanted to go back to hostel. This time round, we received only one phone call, from Hui Jun's Buddy. Hui Jun wasn't feeling well today after lunch, and Mr Chew and her Buddy's parents brought her to see a doctor. There was nothing serious, just mild gastric flu. This evening, we brought her back to hotel to stay with the teachers. She has taken her medicine and is now resting. I'm glad to say that I'm really proud of the students, especially the non-Chinese students. Their attitudes have improved tremendously and are beginning to adapt to the cultural ... read more

As usual, the day started with our students observing, and some even participating in the classes that they have been assigned. The students were troopers; soldiering on even though there was some communication barrier. After lunch, they attended some enrichment courses - Calligraphy and Tai-Chi. The students enjoyed themselves immensely as they proudly displayed their hidden artistic talents yet again. They even learned 10 out of the 24 basic Tai-Chi moves! The highlight of the day was the birthday celebration of both Roslina and Liang Xiu. The teachers treated the students to two massive birthday cakes and these were devoured by everyone in no time! The birthday girls were ‘sabotaged’ by their friends but soon after the ‘cake-smearing ritual’ spread to the rest of the students! They had lots of fun! After dinner, the students were ... read more

Dear parents and friends, There was a network problem in the hotel. Just resolved 15 minutes ago. Seeing so many comments from all of you is heartening. I'll pass the messages to your children/friends tomorrow's morning, as early as possible. Please do not send email to me during this period. I may not have the time to check my mail. We bade farewell to our principal, Mrs. Oh today. She left a very impactful message for our students - Choose Your Attitude, Make Their Day, Be There and Play (FISH Philosophy). The students did quite a fair bit of reflection today and from what the teachers can gather, the trip has been very meaningful for them so far. The teachers also had a heart-to-heart talk with the students where the students were given the opportunity to ... read more

Dear Parents, The boys were given a morning call at 6:50 am in the morning. They quickly washed up and got ready for breakfast. They were shocked when were told to make their beds, and sweep/mop the floor. Apparently, some boys do not do house chores back home. They didn’t know how to fold their blankets. The caregiver ‘auntie’ came in and award points for the cleanliness/tidiness of their room. She simply shook her head and asked me if she needed to grade them. “Give them 3 days, before grading them”, I said. Hopefully, by the end of the third day, they’d know to how to do simple house chores. The boys finished their chores and waited until 7:30 am for their breakfast. However, the girls arrived far behind the scheduled time (around 7:50 am). They ... read more
