The official Teachers’ Day in Malaysia is 16th May, but then our school postponed the celebration till last Friday because the whole school were having the school’s mid year exam during the whole May.
For the past few years, the Teachers’ Day celebrations were always the same, it’s listening to people talking on the stage about how grateful teachers are and were and there’s not really any performance too, it’s just a simple ceremony to shows that the school does celebrate teachers’ day.
It’s a little bit different for this year. Some teachers complained about the boring celebration for the past years and the principal had a little change for us. There’s still the formal celebration ceremony with talking in the hall, but after that, it’s party in the school. =)
The hall thing was just Form 3s and Form 5s, I don’t know why Form 4s were not there. It started at 8 but we were already in the hall before 7.30am. Everyone seems not excited to this because this is not something fun and we weren’t expecting anything from this.
It started off as usual with National and State’s anthem it then with a lot of speeches by the pricipal, the PTA’s chief, the teachers representative, the student representative and more. It’s a lot of boring speeches and nothing interest me or them.
Jin Jie, Yan Duan, Shaun.
Yong Chieh a.k.a. Mustaffa.
So, with respect to the one talking in front, we just try to communicate softly, very soft to clear our boredom in the hall.
It’s not surprise to see people fell asleep in the hall. It’s just everywhere.
I didn’t leave my camera in class because I scared that when I got back to class, it’s not there. Seriously, such thing will happen, who knows? So it’s with me during that time and Juan requested me to take some shots of him and that’s what I got. The above 2 photos are Juan Shong, my class monitor. Looking good with the morning sunlight.
After all, they said that there’s at least a little entertainment in the hall which was when the school’s teachers were upstanding to sing the Teachers’ Day song, it’s a Malay song and it’s funny to see some expression on the teacher’s faces when they didn’t expect to be singing.
Anyway, Happy Teachers Day to the teachers who is reading this and happy teaching! =) It’s school life people, and I’ll be out of the school in less than 5 months, that’s a little bit sad and so it’s gonna be enjoy school life to the fullest right now.
Party time soon…
