Relaxed But Stressful
Primary school was relaxed during class but stressful after. Highly intelligent but rowdy boys never failed to disrupt classes with snarky comments, and their spontaneous renditions of “We Live in Singapura”. A particularly memorable occasion was when they formed a maze with tables to prevent the relief teacher from entering the classroom. While others played the “eraser game”, we played our own virtual reality game, where drawings on scraps of paper were hidden around the classroom. It was complete with fake currency, stocks, items and pets.
Stressful after since we were deliberately being stretched, and our homework was that much more challenging. Not to mention they provided tiny spaces for answers, rendering those with larger handwriting like me compelled to find extra space in the margins.
Yet the new coat of jarring electric blue paint makes it a challenge to look at the physical structure with great fondness today.
