Going camp despite...

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, March 29, 2007
These few days, the whole of Sec 3s have camp at MOE adventure campsite along Dairy Farm Road. Nope, its not an animal farm as much I wish it is. It is just a campsite for students to do obstacle courses and nature walk at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

My colleagues all felt that I should not be asked to go since I am pregnant..It just tells a lot about my school management doesnt it? But in all honesty, I do not mind dropping by to take photos with my students as I will definitely miss them when I go on maternity. But as a responsibility for me to stay whole day in the camp, I wasnt too happy.

Anyway, yesterday was the first day and it was a torture because the 12 teachers who went because they are form teachers of the Sec 3 classes all spent their time mostly in a small aircon room watching DVD in our colleagues' laptop to spend our time. There are about 15 instructors who were conducting the whole camp, so I felt so redundant.

At about 545pm, I told my CCA HOD who is overall in charge that I wanted to go home to eat my home cooked dinner and rest as I was allowed to go home at night for sleep. And you know his reaction...he asked me:" Do you have to go back so early?" I couldnt believe my ears as there was so sign of empathy for me who stayed the whole day in camp and feeling so uncomfortable.

I had to tell him about eating home and having my due rest. Spent some time explaining before he said ok and reminded me to be back again in the morning early the next day. Sigh...
