  • Year 1 Level Camp 2010
    refreshing concept which I was just introduced to together with that being my first time spending three nights in school Of course I was not new to this novel experience entirely as I had stayed overseas alone with my school mates before However it seemed thrilling that while away from home we were also still at home The camp being a cultural one was centering themes which had much influence in our little island of diverse culture The activities were organized to raise awareness about the traditions of other races and ethnicities and teach us to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of each race and ethnicity It was an exotic experience to be exposed to various customs and culture of races in Singapore I felt compelled to do my best and learn more about these traditions and cultures In addition the experience had also kindled my flames of passion for my home country While immersing myself in these activities I felt that being a Chinese I would also want to spread my vibrant kaleidoscopic culture to all corners of the world and for the future generations to continue the monumental legacy my forefathers had managed to create In fact putting myself in the other races shoes they would also want the same so why not start right now True I felt contented with these self fulfilling activities but I thoroughly enjoyed the other additional activities which were also planned To raise awareness about how the blind are leading their lives my school arranged an excursion to Dialogue in the Dark at Ngee Ann Polytechnic which showed me that these people who have lost their sight are brave and willing to live their life to the fullest despite not being able to see I truly commend them for their willingness to embrace life to the maximum and not giving up on themselves after being handicapped in this aspect Their optimistic perspective and attitude towards life made me think again about how lucky I am to be perfect as a whole While I complained they smiled while I grumbled they treasured their dreams and hoped silently while I whined they thanked their creator for still giving them that ray of light I winced in realization at these glaringly obvious facts which were always there but never obvious enough to let my spoilt and pampered eyes see While the camp was based mostly on the Asian culture I thought that fencing took the theme of culture to a whole new level It had a nice twist to it after being soaked in numerous activities all relating Asia s diverse cultures In fact I had a lot of fun fencing and I found out that despite looking easy this sport needed intense concentration and maybe just pure instinct with a dash of luck It brought out my inner ardor for having friendly competition and I enjoyed the process of fencing against my friends immensely After being the winner of my match with a score

  • SJAB Cambodia Trip
    She was most probably about four to five years old and had an older brother beside her When all the biscuits had been given out and everyone had started eating she sat there and stared at everyone Initially I thought that it because she was unable to undo the knot on the plastic bag yet when I undid it for her she continued to sit there When I gestured to her to start eating she kept repeating the Khmer word for family indicating that she wanted to bring it back for them to share It touched me as well as made me a little sad to see this It is at that age where we are all just barely learning to care for others instead of only you Many say that children are able to mature under tough conditions I think that applies greatly here She has a heart that is more selfless than many who are older than her and cares for her family greatly something that eve her elder brother or the elder kids there were unable to do On seeing this I felt sad because it occurred to me that people like us are unable to share with others complaining that we have to share a room with our siblings the computer with the rest of the family yet there is a girl in another part of the world who has to share even biscuits with her family We live in a highly affluent society we definitely don t have to share stuff like that This incident may be small but it got me thinking deeply and made me think every time I am reluctant to share every time I am being selfish or self centered A girl who is much younger is able to have this

    a lot both in terms of academics and life skills Wales taught me to appreciate the countryside and that it was more than nasty insects and muddy ground The countryside wasn t as dreamy as the books mentioned but it had its own beautiful side I realized that ecology is more than the facts we read out of the biology textbooks It is to truly understand how the biotic and abiotic factors interact to create an ecosystem which was what the trip intended for In Wales spring has just ended and summer is beckoning Imagine my delight when we were walking through the forest and the flies simply ignored us and minded their own business I didn t even mind the ecological fieldwork because the weather was so brilliant that we could experience a few different weathers a day It could be freezing cold near the coastal cliffs yet sunny and windy in the village and cloudy as we walked through the hills A 6 km walk over the hills in Wales is nothing compared to a 2 4 km run in Singapore Staying in the Orielton Field Studies Centre in Pembrokeshire gave me more opportunities to get to know my friends better Sleeping in a room of six has its own benefits such as not oversleeping and sharing your experiences with more people which also exposes you to more perspectives The sandwiches we made for our lunch reminded me that whatever I ate was my own choice I also learnt how to be more independent and make my own decisions Oxford inspired me When I saw the high towers and medieval like colleges in the University when I heard the guide talking about how the typical student life in Oxford was like and about the 140 Singaporean students who

    class is also very small and the largest class I have seen was around ten people They also move to different classrooms for different lessons and they do not have a definite seating arrangement Therefore I find their learning environment very different from ours I think their environment is one that is more relaxed and slow whereas ours is one that feels very rushed Another memorable part of the trip was the home stay My buddy was very friendly and I really enjoyed my stay at the farm Her farm was 2600 acres big and she had a lot of sheep At first we were really amazed by the large amount of sheep that seemed to roam freely on the large amount of land but slowly the sight of sheep and vast lands were a norm Her family was also very friendly and they made me feel like I was home Her parents kept up conversations with us and made an effort to explain many things about their farm and Australia to us Her younger brother was very bubbly and was very excited to talk to us He did not shy away from us and it really felt like he was my younger brother They also asked us a lot of questions about Singapore and I realized that to them Singapore is a place with many skyscrapers It is very unique and special to them as they do not have buildings near their home and even so it is never more than 2 stories high It felt good to explain about Singapore to them and I did feel a bit proud to let others know more about Singapore We fed sheep and went spotlighting which is going out at night when it is really dark and shining a bright light
