Paaarrrtaaaaaaaaayyyy

October 30, 2011

Initially, my students wanted to have their class party outside the vicinity of the school.

They wanna have their own fun, and not having to worried about serving the teachers.

But I talked them out of it: mainly because they should ‘mohon restu’ from their teachers, and also use this ‘jamuan’ as an appreciation to those who have taught them for 5 years.

So they too agreed.

But I told them, our class ‘jamuan’ does not need to be boring. We can make it epic together.

I shoved them with ideas: from games to props to performances to events. I gave them full use of my projector and speakers. I gave them full control in terms of organisation and creativity.

Then they came out with the invitation cards and notice for all the teachers in school (side info:’jamuan kelas’ here includes treating all teachers and school workers to a meal), they used a weekend to practise their performance, and they went rushing around to ensure the party would be epic!

And…

It was EPIC.

Taking the early hiccups in the beginning aside, everything came together well. Biggest flaw would be, food could have been more as it finished real reaaal fast.

My kids even did video presentations, sang Hey Soul Sister, and a self-composed Malay song… *applause*

So here are some pictures to round up the EPICness of our class party!

Because 4 different classes were doing their class party on the same day, I had to find time to rush over to my 5A1’s party. The 5A1 kids are the most verbal in their love declaration to me..LMAO… and because I was technically very very late.. (arrived at their class nearly 12.30pm while the other teachers went at 10am), I was the only teacher in their class. But they were super cute. From afar, they saw me, and made like a welcoming team to escort me to the class, in fears that i would run away lol. Then I was given the queen treatment and full attention, serving me the drinks and food.

BUT

Before I could even take a sip of my drink, a student came and asked whether she could take a picture with me.

I said ‘yes’.

And immediately a line is formed. LOL.

I was shouting for them to take their numbers, and all I need to do was to stay put, pose, and smile, while handphones and cameras went snapping away.

Oh yeah, handphones. Never believe a student when he or she said they did not bring their phones to school. At least, I’m cool with that. Handphones help a great lot when the school compound is so large, and also when I need to know the attendance of my class by not having to walk all the way to the other side of school and climb up 3 flight of stairs. Lol.

My students never fail to surprise me everyday.

Sometimes, I get horrible surprises that are quite traumatising.

Sometimes, I find myself a very very very proud ‘parent’.

And I know,

all these unpolished gems, are slowly shedding off the dirt, and being molded to shine greatly in the future 🙂
