back in Marymount Convent





was back at my primary school for this year's south zone STAR champion workshop... =D... the last time i was there was 24 years ago with Mei.... everything about the building has changed as it was demolished and rebuilt... heng, the uniform, school crest and its location on top of the hill still remains the same... 

reached rather early at 1.20pm to have lunch in the school canteen and to observe the crowd during dismissal... 

$1 mac & cheese
不好吃的... 冷冷的... =S




was busy people watching and this group of 学妹s came to share table with me... either they were so use to having strangers around or i was sitting at their regular table... =P



was finding my way around to the course venue when i found the heritage corner ... 

old images of how the school looked like during my time...


the tree in the centre of the carpark which we had to run round and round during PE lesson... =S 

school badges.... i still have mine.... it's considered antique liao oh.... the current badge is the iron-on kind which i thought was pretty ugly....


i belong to Ms McCathy's and Miss Schoolbeck's era who sadly had passed away in 2012 and 2014 respectively. 



the hall where i had PE lessons on some days, watched teachers' day performances, being tortured during gymnastic CCA, sang along and cried bucket during graduation concert etc


Mrs Ee (first from the left) was my music teacher who was rumored to have transplanted eyes which scared the hell out of me... she was extremely fierce and i was so frightened of her that i broke a pencil into two while panicking over not bringing my recorder for one of her classes.... 

Mrs Dharma (centre) was my P6 form teacher... but instead of remembering her for her English, Math and Science teaching.... i remembered her most for our art lessons... she taught me potato printing, repeat pattern, threading raffia string on embroidery plastic grid to make pencil case / bag.... i remembered re-doing it endless time just because i couldn't make up my mind on the design and ended up not completing the project... (-.-!!!) ... and last but not least, decorating a lab coat with feathers from feather dusters and damaged shuttlecocks.... 


'Daughters of Marymount' - a line in our school song... and the school song is still the same old one that i sang for my 5.25 years in MCS (i was a transferred student) ... =D




this news came out when i was in P5 .... sad to the max...




only the school's motto looks familiar... =) 





a very happy me... =D


sheltered walkway along the hill



the junction at the bottom of the hill where the school bus i was on was hit by a TIBS bus when i was in P3 ... my head kissed the metal edge of the window and required 3 stitches ... =S

the bridge which we had to run across during some of our PE lessons... =S... #hatingPEsincePrimarySchool

this trip back really brings back lots of sweet memories.... am really happy to have this chance to be back... =D
