Teachers Day Celebrations

Back to the 90s on Teachers' Day!

Written by: Ching Zonghan (3E2)

Teachers’ Day is celebrated to recognise our teachers’ efforts in helping us to attain our potential. This year’s teachers’ day programme started with a class bonding session which was helmed by the class committee. My class munched on snacks and engaged in light banter with our form teachers before we moved off to participate in the inter-class Captain Ball competition.

Following that, we headed to the school hall to enjoy the concert segment. Students performed with their teachers to nostalgic songs of the 90s such as Baby One More Time and Say My Name. The Dance Club members too performed to a medley of songs that were originally sung by the Backstreet Boys and other boy bands. In the game segment, students were required to guess the identity of the teachers based on their ‘baby photographs’ and their favourite paraphernalia.

Prior to the concert, students also did a poll to nominate teachers for the various awards. I was delighted to see some of my teachers win the “Champagne Teacher” and the “Extra Mile Teacher” awards. The concert ended with the dancers and emcees showing their appreciation to the teachers.

This year’s Teachers’ Day celebrations would definitely be deeply etched in our minds. One student, Hayden Chong Yi Feng of 3E2, had this to say:

I appreciate my teachers as they have definitely done their job well in educating and preparing us for what’s ahead. Their patience and determination to see us do well are what drives us forward to make them proud.”

One of our teachers, Mr Roy Tan, quipped:

Captain Ball was fun and the concert was good as it kept the audience enthralled.”
