Year 1 ( 2009- present)
Although it is just a year in this new school, i have made really good friends and i have learnt how to be even more independent. Previously, teachers would drill us, nag at us, really chase us for our work till we hand it in. However, it is all up to us now, whether we really want to excel and to take things seriously. Initially, i really needed to adapt to this new environment and new curriculum. Now that i have gradually gotten use to the system, i actually like this system better than those i had experienced in Secondary & Primary education. The things we are learning now are really more focused and they are what we really want to learn. I'm looking forward to the things i would be introduced to this year (:
Anglican High School (2005-2008)
Initially i was not considering about entering this school. However, my badminton coach had told me to go over to the school as he was coaching there. I entered the school and was introduced to the term sports class. I was directly posted to the sports class where only students with sports CCA could enter. Initially we had a hard time adapting. Partly the sudden increase in subjects, and also the special term our class were given. There were 2 sports class and students from other classes did not really liked us. For the fact that we were given special treatments. We were able to wear sports shoes ( or training shoes) to school directly while others could only wear white shoes. The school also place much emphasis on sports as it is the Centre of Excellence for Sports. Others felt that we were just students who manage to enter the school just because we are good in sports and that we would not excel in our studies. Being in the sports class throughout the 4 years in the school and being in the Special stream, the teacher naturally expected higher standards of work as compared to the rest. I participated in inter-school, inter-national and nationals competition for badminton as well. The best lesson i learnt is TEAM SPIRIT. It does not matter whether we are winning or losing. It does not matter who our opponent is. We have to have faith in ourself and our team members. We be there for one another, cheered for one another during competitions and also helped one another academically.
Red Swastika School (1999-2004)
This is where i start to actively participate in extracurricular activities. In Primary 2, i became a brownie and it really taught me many moral values such as respect & honesty. In Primary 3, i took on swimming and gradually entered the school team for swimming. Juggling 2 CCAs, i am glad that my acadamics were not affected. In Primary 4, i was approached to join the school badminton team. It was the year that we have streamings examination. I was hesitant to accept the offer fearing that i would neglect my studies. I love badminton, thus i sacrificed brownie and took on badminton. It was lucky for me as the training dates do not clash. I was posted to EM1 in primary 5 and subsequently primary 6. I participated in inter-school, inter-class and nationals competition for badminton and swimming. Even though the trainings were pretty tough, i really enjoyed my time (: . By the end of the 6 years, i left the school with all As & A* & a merit in Higher Chinese.
