Where a second language becomes second nature

It is the week before the mid-semester holidays, and everything in the school appears to be winding down in anticipation. One can feel it in the air, as students discuss about going home, as teachers talk about taking a break.

还有一周的时间就要迎来我们的学期中假期了。 校园里所有的一切都如预期一样趋于平静下来。我可以清晰的感受到学校里弥漫着这样的气息: 学生在讨论着回家而老师们在讨论着可以好好的休息一下。

Some things never stop though.

The change of weather in Singapore these few weeks, from extreme hot to thunderous downpours, have taken its toll upon my staff. It came to a point where we have four teachers taken sick in one day, and my Vice-Principal had to approach me to cover as well.

I cannot help but think of two things that happened, one last week and one this week.


I popped by a middle-school class during my routine walkabouts, and they were having a break. One of the students took the opportunity to tell me of his displeasure, that he (or rather his parents) has paid the school fees for him to study, so why should we stop him from buying drinks at any time of the day from the school canteen?

在巡视中学校园时碰到了学生课间休息 时间,一位学生告诉我,他对于学生不可以在用餐以外的时间到小贩部买饮料这项规定相当不满。他觉得他的父母缴缴了很多学费给学校,为何连买饮料都要被限制。

16 Sep is the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations in our school. It is also the final school day of our first batch of immersion students from Beijing Huijia Private School, our sister school in Beijing, for the year. I was glad to see plenty of talents performing that day. I was also glad to see how our immersion students have enjoyed themselves during the celebrations.

It all started with a boy who found a two-dollar note and popped by my office with his buddies. One of them noticed with great glee the bottle of candies on my table and reached out for it. 

It was a learning moment, as I found myself having to teach them how to ask for the candies in a polite manner, and to accept that the person with the candies has the right to reject the request. One or two rounds of practice later, all the boys got their candies.

I met up with a group of parents who have been supporting the school, some for as long as six years, on Wednesday evening. They are busy parents with full-time jobs yet they took the time to come to talk with this new principal of a school they have grown to love. I really appreciate that gesture.

I had my first conference with parents today, 9 working days after I took over the school. It was a conference we arranged after consultation with the Parents Support Group, on the best day and time for me to meet the most important people in the lives of the young people entrusted to us.

The skies opened up this morning and poured a huge amount of water on the school premises. It felt good to see the three admin staff (thank you, Ms Hsu, Ms Chua and Mr Than for the good work) working together with me, to quickly bringing their umbrellas to shelter our students coming in from the buses and cars, to make sure they are as dry as possible when they begin their lessons for the day.

On 10 June, Kindergarten and Primary will hold Student Led Conferences. It is an opportunity for parents to get involved and communicate with your children about their learning over the year.
