Class Trip!

Hey Guys!
There would be a class trip to The Taman Megah Home's For Handicapped And Disabled Children.

The reason we choosed this place is:
a)to bring joy and love to the occupants of the home
b)to help them in every way that is possible.

The committees are as follows:
Chairperson: Lim Yee Wan
Assistant Chairperson: Fam Kai-Cong
Treasurer: Hayden Cheang
Transport Manager: Bryan Fong/Tay Kee Ren/Tay Kee Zet
Reporter: Tan Hop Kins/Alison Tan
Entertainment Manager: John Wong
Photographer: Shuen

The programs are as follows:
2.Singing and dancing activities
4.Bonding Time
5.Chant a few verses from the chanting book

The mode of transport there is by going there with our parents.If possible, try to get your parents to come along,so that the transportation problem can be solved.
The reason we would like to have our parents to come along is because we would like them to come and experience with us as there are not many class trips that we could go with them.

We would be having our class trip either on the 5th or 12th of July. If anyone have any problems or any suggestions, please feel free to come and contact any of us.

Hope everyone can make it!
Sadhu. YeeWan.

Class Outing

Dear Students

We're going to have a class outing sometime after the mid-term June hols. It will b on a Sun morning in place of the usual Sun cls.

Objectives of outing - provide :

  1. An alternative form of experiential learning.
  2. Students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills via organizing the outing.
  3. An opportunity to put Dhamma into practice e.g. rendering service by helping the needy.

Students are to suggest the venue for the outing. When wishing to suggest the venue consider the objectives of visiting the proposed venue. Be guided by what the Buddha taught i.e. Right Intention/Thought - how is it going to benefit others & ourselves. You may start proposing the venue with immediate effect on the blog under the comments section for easy reference.

Organizing committee - preferably made up of Form 4 studs so that the SPM & STPM studs probably only need to join in the outing. Form 4 studs may volunteer to be the organizing chair person & we'll go from there.

We will discuss further this Sun.

P.S – For T1 for the late posting as I forgot to do it and was quite busy.

Lessons from Master Oogway

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

2 Wolves in Us all


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, 'My son, the battle is between 'two wolves' inside us all.
'One is Evil.  It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.'

'The other is Good.  It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
