This is my first Primary School and has closed down. I can still remember playing with my classmates zero-point (a rope game) and police-catch-thief. I also recall participating in my School's Story Telling Competition and came in first with the story 'The Three Little Pigs'. Life at Primary School was rather carefree unlike Junior College and University. I enjoyed myself there and made many friends, however I didn't managed to keep in contact with them.
Tampines Primary School (1986-1988)
School Motto: To Persevere And Succeed
Primary 4N2 (1986), Primary 5N2 (1987), Primary 6N2 (1988)
E.C.A.: Scouts and Swimming Club
This is my second Primary School. Although I was in a new school environment, I still managed to adjust and made new friends. I was less active compared to my previous Primary School. The school building was new. I recall that during my Primary 6, my group's Social Work Project came in first for the whole Primary 6. This is all due to the hard work of my team leader and the team members too. The topic we did was on the culture of Thailand. It was a rather sad period of my life too was we were to be separated again due to our promotion from Primary to Secondary level. Life was still carefree.
St. Hilda's Secondary School (1989-1992)
School Motto: Go Forward
Class: Secondary 1G (1989), Secondary 2G (1990), Secondary 3G (1991), Secondary 4G (1992)
E.C.A.: Choir and Swimming Club
This is a new phase of my life. I can still recall the first day of school where all of us, the new Secondary One students, were still wearing our Primary School uniform. The assembly area was very colourful with the many students from different Primary School. I was the first batch of boys to be enrolled in this school. It was initially a girls' school. Hence all my seniors were big sisters. I enjoyed being with my Upper Secondary classmates and friends. I also enjoyed being in the Choir as I love to sing. In the sporting arena, I surprisingly managed to come in Third in my School's Swimming Carnival for 200m Backstroke Open Boys in 1991. Secondary School was stressful due to the 'O' Levels but still carefree. Thanks be to God that I managed to clear my 'O' Levels and move on to a Junior College for further education. I went on to a Junior College although most of my friends in Secondary went to the Polytechnic. It was because I wasn't too sure what I wanted to be but wanted teaching to be an option open to me. Thanks be to God that I also had the privilege to be in the batch that helped St. Hilda's Secondary School to be ranked 32 in the Special/Express Stream. We tied with St. Andrew's Secondary School which happens to be our fellow Anglican School.
Serangoon Junior College (1993-1994)
School Motto: Discere Servire (To Learn To Serve)
Class: 931S12 (1993), 942S4 (1994)
E.C.A.: Choir and First Aid Club
I will always remember what my principal said to us whenever he sees us. "You are the top 25% of your 'O' Level Cohort. You are the cream of the cream." He did his best to boast our morale and surely he did. For my batch, we did very well, especially the Science Stream Students. We were ranked 10 out of the 14 Junior College's Science Stream students and over all 12. I continued to pursue my love for singing in the Junior College by joining the Choir and made good friends there. Studies were rather difficult in Junior College as I took Combined Science in my Secondary School but had to take Pure Physics in the Junior College. Furthermore we had to adjust to the lecture and tutorial system. Thankfully we had patient and approachable teachers who were willing to help. College life was stressful, as if we are unable to get to the University we are considered to have failed and wasted our 2 years of college life. But thankfully I had encouraging siblings who helped me. Life was very rush during the two years but I managed to learn bowling, cycling basic first aid skills and gave tuition under my College Voluntary Free Tuition Scheme to needy Primary School students.
