Will TPJCians Attend The Upcoming Teachers' Day Concert?

There seem to be no buzz regarding the Teachers' Day concert for this year. Perhaps, the updates were announced to the current JC1 students in the courtyard. To be fair, posters advertising the balloons to be sold by the Student Council as Teachers' Day gifts can also be seen around the school.

If I am not wrong, the balloons carry a form of blessing for the teachers; the recipient will have to pop the balloon to receive the blessings. This is quite an innovative use of the balloons - instead of allowing it to slowly deflate and wasting money, why not burst it beforehand and be blessed at the same time?
























Nevertheless, the JC2 students seem to be left out in the updates or events leading to the celebrations. We have no clue whatsoever regarding the programme for the concert which is held on 29th August in the school hall. The last announcement made regarding the concert to the whole college was about a month ago. As the JC2 students prepare for their Preliminary examinations this few weeks (and we proceed to our examination venue in the morning straightaway), we have 'lost contact' with any updates from the Student Council. What is going on during the concert this Friday?!

Let's put the above issue aside and welcome another. I have also heard news that some TPJCians, especially the JC1 students, will be paying a visit to their Secondary school teachers instead of the ones teaching them now. I fully understand their situation; they have spent four years with their Secondary school teachers. I am pretty sure the bonds forged between the teachers and students there are strong and close. I will not be surprised to witness a low attendance rate among the JC1 batch this year. In fact, I believe other colleges are suffering the same fate too. There will be a few students who skip school to visit their Secondary school teachers.
























I hope the Student Council can post an announcement via TPJC.net and notify the students of the programme schedule during the Teachers' Day concert this Friday. I remembered there was a contest for the celebrations. Any update on it? I am not sure if there is even an online announcement about the contest since TPJCians may miss out on it during morning assembly weeks ago. This is our last year and the JC2s are hoping to repay the contributions of their respective tutors and lecturers. What do you think?

I'm a representative of the Student Council and I really apologize for the lack of updates on Teachers Day. Maybe a good avenue would be the Council Website. I'll update the website regarding the upcoming Teacher's Day Concert so TPJCians (both JC1 and JC2) can be updated! Apologies from the Student Council!

To anonymous:
I think it's abit rude to criticize the publicity committee of the this teacher's day because I have witness them put in alot of effort to make this a success! I apologize for the lack of updates, but please do not say they sucks. Thanks! :D

@anonymous: Apology accepted. BUT, I think there's no need for you guys to post updates via the Council Website. I suggest you make full use of TPJC.net. All the best! = )
