I was in the school , almost the whole morning y'day. The "Breakfast w The Principal" started at 9am and lasted abt 2hrs. Basically, the school was trying to 'recruit' new set of Parent Suppot Group.
A number of parents turned up, (few familiar faces)...thou it didnt really tally from the number expected. Since, i am already a PSG , since last year, i roughly knew , how the talk would somehow lead to. There were some working parents and some homemakers like myself. Mostly ladies , only couple of men around.
It was nice to hear , different suggestions & feedbacks frm some of them ,during our group discussions.
One of the parent, is in the Cricket Club Assn, and would love to help out on the CCAs and some other outdoor activities in the school. One lady, is taking hairdressing course and would complete it within the next 2mths or so...she would love to offer her soon-to-be-skills to the needy pupils in the school. Hair cut anyone !? There's also a guy, who is a prison warden, could render his help in the disciplinary or counselling areas, to those "notorious" students if needed...warden hokay..dun play..play hor, or i'll shall locked u up !
Many other issues were brought up.
After 2hrs and light breakfast snacks...those who needed to leave, could do so, those in the committees or would love to be one, stayed for a little while more. I stayed.
You, know how first impressions last....
(Im talking abt first impressions here...and not being judgemental of some sort ;) )
Remember the ads on "IMPULSE" or izzit "REXONA" : read BO .
You know, how communications has an accumulative effect...sometimes?
I better not assume, eh.
Anyhowzz, there's a newcomer, over excited, over enthusiastic, over "loud", over expressive, over confident........over dressed. ! **roll eyes**
The whole meeting ended slightly before 12noon...i was thinking wat my other partner was thinking too...hehhee
Later, we found out...that new comer, is gonna be in our Reading Mum programme...!! **duh**
Next meeting will be on next Wed...11.30am...(that new comer,suggestions).
