Gearing up...

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, November 07, 2010
I would be going on a trip to Sydney, Australia with my students tomorrow morning. I feel rather excited and yet, apprehensive because my family is not with me and its my first time going with students. So, I do not know what to expect.

Nevertheless, I am looking forward to this trip to just take a break and earn some mileage points for my Krisflyer card. Yippee! And the best thing is that I didn't have to fork out a single cent for this trip!

We have been 'training' the students before this trip just so that they are physically and mentally ready for this. This is a Sec 3 Uniformed Group Leadership trip where all the uniform groups like NCC, NPCC, St Johns and Girl Guides from my school all come together to go for it. There will be 28 students and 4 teachers going.

For our first training session, we ran around the school a couple of times, climbing staircases, as well as some static exercises. For our second training, we brought the group to Bukit Timah Hike. We wanted to let the students have a feel of trekking as that is what they will be doing in Sydney as we go to the Blue Mountains.



It was tough as the steps in the nature reserve were huge and numerous!


I didnt manage to go for this hike as I was attending a course at Teachers' Network. I definitely wished I went as I needed the exercise!

But anyway, from the photos my students took, I could tell they were having a great time!




As for our last training session, we brought the kids to our school gym to tone up and strengthen their muscles.


The students all wanted to see me in action too. So I did some stuff with the machines just to amuse them.

Anyway, I am really looking forward to this trip to have fun with my students and colleagues as well as to enjoy myself.

I do pray for their safety and health as well as smooth journey throughout this trip!
Also pray for my family back home that they will be protected and be happy!

Alright, got to finish up my packing before I head to bed as I've got to be at the airport by 5am tomorrow morning!
