3 Memorable Years at SSIS

This is an old school update of my previous school in Shanghai. I studied at the Shanghai Singapore International School from Grade 1 to 3. These 3 years could be one of the best times of my schooling life. It is indeed a privilege to be able to experience the fun and interesting learning environment in an international school.

Saying goodbye and leaving this school was the saddest thing ever. I missed my friends very much and cried on my last day of school. Here are some photos of my school for remembrance and some of my Grade 3 activity updates...

My school bus.... the most important "connector" that brought me to and from school daily. Riding on this school bus was rather eventful too. It got involved in a minor road accident once but fortunately, no one was hurt.

The main entrance of my school

The main blocks (classrooms)

Another view of the main buildings

The classroom corridor

My Grade 1 classroom

Outside my Grade 2 classroom

The girls' washroom

Track and field 

Playground for preschoolers and lower primary pupils

Vegetable patch. Each class had a designated plot to plant various types of organic vegetables (which was then harvested and brought home)

In the gymnasium

Some of my school activity updates:

Grade 3 Sports Day (held in Nov 2014, yes this is super outdated haha!)

I took part in the Grade 3 girls' 60m sprint and 300m run

And won medals in both events (there were only 4 participants in each race so everyone was a winner hehe)

Me and my medals :)

International Friendship Day concert (April 2015)

I took part in an instrument march

The grand finale. The highlight of the concert was a Broadway Musical, One Singular Sensation. It was a stunning performance!  

Took part in a compulsory inter-class debate (Should animals live in the wild or in captivity)

There was a topic on Bak Kut Teh in one of our Chinese Language textbook (Singapore syllabus) so our teacher arranged for a mini cooking activity. We had so much fun cooking and eating BKT!

One of my school projects done using the school's iPad

One of the many science experiments that I loved doing (this pic was taken just because I was in it :p)

I learned to play the yangqin (Chinese string-xylophone) for one of the co-curricular activities. In this pic, I was performing the Doraemon theme song in one of the school events.

The end of the final exams revealed some surprising results. I was one of the top achievers in my grade! 

I won the i4C Award (for core values) from my class teacher

I was the top scorer for the English Language (only one prize for each grade)

Also a top scorer for Science. It was a score-tie with a Japanese boy. We both scored full marks of 100%

With my BFFs, Meng Yuan and Erica

Another BFF, Karen (we had frequent playdates together)

With my English teacher, Mr Kriska

Ma, I did it!! Pa, I did it!!

My 9th Birthday in Shanghai

Backdated: 13 August 2015

I celebrated my birthday for the 3rd time in Shanghai this year. This year will be my last single-digit age number. Everyone around me keeps telling me how much I have grown and matured during the last few years and I kinda agree too haha. I am about 143cm tall now, almost as tall as some of the shorter adults that I know of :p

OK, back to 13th August 2015... It was a hot summer weekday (Thursday). I was on summer holiday while daddy went to work as usual. Mummy suggested a half-day outing to the city and the destination was picked by me, of course. We went to the Nanjing Pedestrian Street because there were 2 things that I enjoyed doing there - sitting on the "choo-choo train/tram" and visiting M&M's World...

Huan ying lai dao Nan Jing Lu Bu Xing Jie!

M&M's world

They were having sales...what perfect timing so mummy bought me some birthday gifts ;)

For lunch, I wanted to have char kuey teow (my favourite food) and the easiest to find Malaysian food there was Secret Recipe. 

Jalan-jalan after makan


Oh, nearly forgot my train ride! RMB5 per ride, per person.

Afternoon snack back at Sky Mall near our home.

Mummy also bought me a simple birthday cake from the same mall... a Mickey-shaped plain cheese cake


Macam-macam poses with the cake

Walked out to Sky Mall again for dinner when daddy came back after work. I picked this western restaurant where daddy and mummy ordered a family set meal...

Soup and bread

Crab cakes

Panfried chicken with mushroom sauce

Some grilled duck or something, cant remember haha...

Squid ink pizza

Tiramisu

After dinner, we went home to cut and eat cake ;)

The following day, mummy's good friend (a fellow Malaysian who lived in the same apartment as us) insisted on giving me a birthday treat at a Hello Kitty cafe in the city. Thank you, Aunty A. We miss you very much!

9 years, 9 different looks!
