Puan Hasbah’s retirement

On the 28th of May, we had an assembly to honour Puan Hasbah’s years of teaching and devotion in our school. The assembly was at 12 noon together with the afternoon session students as Puan Hasbah was an afternoon teacher. The assembly started as usual with the national and the state anthem lead by the band.

Afterwards, the assembly continued with a little thank you speech from our principal, Puan Mary John and later a speech by the one and only, Puan Hasbah. After the giving of gifts, our band played Auld Lang Syne and The Lion King. It was a very sad day as we had to let go of another great teacher.

 The band and I would like to thank Puan Hasbah for all her hard work and her patience in teaching us students. We will miss you, teacher!

Sports Day 2015

Our school held its annual Sports Day on the 22nd of May at Stadium Jubilee. This year was a little different for the band because we marched in our new uniforms! We definitely stand out a little more than we usually did.

The members gathered at the stadium at 7.00 am to set up. After we tuned, all the contingents were told to make their way to the tracks where we lined up and waited for the event to start. The band played The Hustle, Abington Ridge, Sousa Spectacular and an additional song, I Want You Back. We also played the national and the state anthem.

St. Teresa’s Cooperative Day 2015

On the 20th of May, our lovely school held its annual Cooperative Day in which we like to call, ‘Koperasi Day.’ It was definitely a day to look forward to as every club sold delicious food and assesories. Yes, our band sold some stuff too but before that, the formal part of the event was kicked off with the band playing the national anthem and the state anthem. The guest of honour and our dear principal also spoked a few words up on stage then we played You Raise Me Up and The Lion King. The formal part closed with the school song.

As for the informal part of the event, our band sold can isotonic drinks that was brought by our one and only head band teacher, Madam Yii Ling, Latecia Tania’s delicious egg sandwiches, Sharon’s ever so refreshing ice popsicles and Mildred’s gorgeous pink heart shaped waffles. The stall was guarded and lead by our two juniors, Jawai and Darlene.

It was certainly a fun day as we did different sort of styles to promote our stall. We even brought out our instruments and played songs to attract more attention and surely, it worked. The students actually bought our stuff just to stay and watch us play.

At the end of the day, we were sure that we had done a phenomenal job because there was absolutely nothing left on our stall. The money that we’ve earn was added into the band account for future purposes. We hope that soon, with the money that we will continue to earn from small events like this will one day get us our needed instruments.
