Students' Corner

Saying goodbye is often the hardest

By the end of 2014, 22 of my students would have completed their ‘O’s and ‘A’s. Some of them are my 1-1 students, while some came to my house for group tuition, and the rest are students in Punggol Gardens and Compassvale Lodge RCs. This means I would not be seeing them anymore! It seems that after all these years, I have not gotten used to students leaving~ @_@
Some have been with me since 2011, and the only farewell was the last lesson where we were working so hard for the impending Maths papers. Well, people move on, and I wish the best in their future endeavour. My only wish? is that students come up and say hi when they see me on the streets :)

Jiahui, Firdaus, Winnie, Natalie, Jazper, Yuki, Jared, Venus, Sheryl, Jun, Athalia, Sianghui, Darren, Eyren, En ze, Justin, Juwin, Xuanhui, Remus, Xuan yun, Kwoek Zhen, Samuel. You guys have been great!

Tears from a parent

This has got to be the most heart warming post ever. Just 2 weeks ago, Learning Voyage launched a additional-lesson-at-no-charge program for students to tackle the impending mid year exam fever. These lessons are held every Sunday, 10am-12pm at the Compassvale Lodge RC, all in a bid to help students secure better grades.

And there was this parent, who is not very well-to-do, upon hearing this program burst into tears as I was telling her about the program over the phone. She thanked me countless times amid her sobbing and said God will bless me. It suddenly dawned on me that a seemingly small act can have such a big impact on others. Well needless to say my eyes swelled with tears @_@

If only students know how much their parents sacrificed for them.. 天下父母心。。

Fights never solve anything

Fights among students never solve anything. Both parties will only get hurt.

You might think that infront of your peers, you have to show how fearless you are by not backing down from a challenge. But in reality, you are only showing how immature you really are.

Only children fight, over the most trivial of things, because they have not yet developed a sense of logical thinking.

Mature adults, on the other hand, handle these things differently. Someone may disturb or challenge you. But you play it cool. You show no fear, but totally ignore the other party. He may throw your things around, call you names, or make fun of you. But you show no expression. Show that you will not be budged by his immature tauntings.

In the end, the person who looks like an absolute fool is this other person, who is trying so very hard to get a reaction from you. In this case, VICTORY is yours.

You can smile, because due to you not having any adverse reaction, the other party will get into trouble with the discipline committee. And the last laugh will go to you.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, REMEMBER, play it cool, victory is yours, without you needing to even lift a finger.
