An inspiring story of Ian. The school featured is the school I am teaching in.
In all the enthusiasm after we finally made it and among the million other things each one of us is involved in we neglected to communicate the merry news on this blog.

Has been a while! I was caught up with school work the past few weeks and now I realised I am lagging behind in terms of personal life and PD!
No worries. I have a month to do some serious catching up.
To do list (Top 10)
- Clear up my messy desks (home and school)
- Clean up all my computers (physically and virtually)
- Read unread feeds (will take days!)
- Do some shopping
- Catch up with friends
- Work on professional duties (at a very comfortable pace)
- Do a bit of travelling
- Buy and read some books
- Exercise a little (I am lazy)
- Enjoy weekends out with soccer fanatics
Many excellent courses in 2009!
Parents at Maha Bodhi School needn’t rack their brains to stay abreast of their children’s homework or keep tabs on their behaviour in school. With a click of a mouse button, they can find out the latest buzz on their kids’ performance, conduct and attitudes in class.
What’s more, pupils can download worksheets, take quizzes to test their understanding of class lessons and revise vital concepts through a system called Online Practice. All this is possible thanks to Brainbits, an interactive website created by a teacher on his own.
A great website developed by a fellow Singaporean teacher.
