Teacher's Day

The school celebrated Teacher's Day with a concert in the school hall whereby both the students and the teachers had lots of fun. There was some lessons after the concert and the school ended early as the teachers gathered for a Teacher's Day dinner.

It was truly a great day and thank you for all the little gifts and cards that I have received. This Teacher's Day is especially meaningful as it is my first time celebrating it. :) Thank you!!

All the gifts I've received :)

Here's a poem by Sasha and Ling Hwee. I thought it might be appropriate here.

Think of
Are you

Nice poem! : )

WSPS had their own fabric of the nation. The class which participated in the artwork submitted their artwork and was put on a huge red cloth in the canteen. The completed product was simply amazing. It will be on display for a week! Well done White Sands!

August is here...

Learning the National Day song and actions

During assembly, the school had to learn the National Day song and the actions that accompanied it. The students all enjoyed themselves very much. Let's look forward to the National Day celebrations in school next Monday.

East Zone Learning Festival

The primary 3 teachers had to go to the East Zone Learning Festival. Many teachers found the talks and exhibitions very useful and informative. WSPS also had a booth there. The Science department has done a great job. Three cheers for them!

Meanwhile, 3A had a teacher from the morning session taking over the class for the day. I wonder how it went. Can anyone care to say something?
