Unforgettable days in Anderson
Despite that Anderson Secondary School has neither a campus as large as Hwa Chong Institution, nor a reputation as fine as Raffles Institution, she has been my safe haven and a second home for the past 4 years. Like most of my schoolmates, I was given countless of opportunities to exhibit and polish my talents; in my first year, a teacher realized my flair in making public speeches and from then on, I became a regular emcee for all school events. I am extremely thankful to all the teachers and of course, Anderson for discovering my talent that I did not know it myself!
There is such a great variety of Co-curriculum activities (CCAs) offered that choosing just one was nearly impossible. Eventually, I joined the English Drama Club in which, I realized right from the very first session, friendship bonds between my club mates were as strong as family ties. Describing my club mates as simply‘friendly’ is an unforgivable understatement. Much as time-consuming and exhausting my CCA sessions – it’s a full 4 hours each time! - were, it helped nurture me into a dedicated, resilient and artistic person and a cooperative team member. I remember complaining about how I tired I was during a non-stop rehearsal and my director gave me an earful in front everyone! Talk about immense dedication!
Life in Anderson was relatively smooth-sailing, except for the fact that the standard for every test and examination was set so high even scholars - whom all were expected to perform consistently better the rest - could not achieve their desired ‘straight As’ every time. In fact, a scholar dropped Pure Chemistry, much to my disbelief as although I shared the same fate as her of failing every test or exam on this subject, I was too afraid of the future complications should I drop it. My grade for Chemistry for Preliminary Examination was an unbelievable E8, but I still went for my ‘O’ Level Chemistry paper, without much hopes I might add. The academic standard in Anderson is evidently too demanding on everyone but in another perspective, with the bar set high, the yearn to study hard to score is intensified, indirectly molding us into hardworking individuals.
