LOOKING AT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF (SCHOOL) LIFE

We have been having quite a number of schooling Saturdays so as to allow extra holidays for festive celebrations like Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Deepavali. Based on previous experience, not many students would turn up for replacement school (what more with the heavy downpour in the late morning and the H1N1 scare). We had planned for another pot luck for two reasons: to bid (early) farewell to our two trainees who will be leaving the school during the fasting month and to celebrate the month of Ramadhan itself.

This time the theme chosen was food from the east coast so we had dishes like Nasi Dagang, Laksam, Puteri Mandi and for the drinks we had refreshing coconut water. As expected, not many came to school so we had the peace and harmony for the rest of the day.

Even in class, light activity such as reading was carried out and that left us plenty of time to have photo-taking session. School on a Saturday was not that bad after all.
