Old School Is The New School (Intercooler)


There you have it. Fadelinah’s new school, where she’ll probably be spending the next few years of her life teaching at. The Teck Whye area only brings back memories of the nearby Bukit Gombak Camp, where I spent 2 years of my life during NS. Apart from that, nothing else.

Upon knowing that she’ll be posted there, the family decided to recce the place last Thursday; basically to know the best and shortest route to get there. It’s funny how MOE determines where their teachers get posted to. She might as well trade places with some of her friends who face the same predicament, they live nearer to Teck Whye yet got posted to Jurong West. Talk about encouraging people to join the teaching profession.

She’ll have to wake up much earlier if she intends to take the bus, compared to when she was teaching at Fuhua Secondary. And after knowing that she needs to change to another bus somewhere along the infamous Lim Chu Kang Road, it’s safe to say that it’ll probably just be taxi rides every morning. It’s times like these that make me appreciate the fact that I get to wake up at 9am and not have to join the morning rush.

Anyway, she seemed quite happy with her first day of work. There seem to be a lot more Malay students compared to her former school. The school’s environment seems quite laid back with a nice teaching staff, and she already made a great impression upon them with her maiden speech during assembly.

Now if only Ooyah can join her and impress them further with her patriotic rendition of Majulah Singapura.

  1. Poor Fada – about the distance. But it will be a small price to pay if the school turns out to be what she wanted and if her new colleagues are nice 🙂 – I remember her taxi days (pass her the msg that I remember all her stares, scoldings, tears hehe).

  2. Let’s put it this way, there’s no ‘communist’ ambience in this new school and they call each other on a first name basis, even the principal.

    I can tell she’s going to be happy in this new school.

  3. haha – then she’ll definitely be happy. I remember us being “encouraged” to wear red on certain days in the communist school hmmmmm – good for Fada, time for a positive change.

  4. Both of you should have placed a yellow star on your red outfits back then. 😛
