Games Carnival 2008

It is Games Carnival day. Students were back from examinations and were ready to let their hair down to enjoy the event.
Students participating in the games represented their houses. The houses with the most points would be the champion for the Games Carnival.

Intense competitions took place at various venues in the school.
Boys and girls from all levels took part in indoor games such badminton and table tennis.
There was also a computer quiz held in the computer lab where students pitted their IT and gaming skills against each other.
Outdoor games such as netball, basketball and soccer were also played.

Students having fun and games right after the exams.

Parents showed their support by bringing curry chicken and hot dog for charity sales to add to the atmosphere.

Parents and students worked together to set up and run the stalls.
Students, teachers and staff patronised the stalls to grab a bite after their games or while watching them.
By noon, food and drinks were already sold out!

The parent volunteers who has helped immensely were Norhayati, Michelle, Tan Siew Hoon, Sylvia and Evelyn.
Will like to take this opportunity to thank them for their generousity in giving their time and effort to make the Games Carnival a success.

School awards from MOE.

Dear PSG Members,

I am pleased to inform that in this year's MOE Work Plan Seminar which was held yesterday, TK was awarded the following:
1. Band 2 for GCE 'O' Level Performance
2. Sustained Achievement Award (SAA) for Physical Fitness
3. SAA for Aesthetics
4. SAA for Uniformed Groups
5. SAA for Academic Value-addness

TK has also been awarded the Outstanding Development Award for Character Development. In addition, at a separate Awards Ceremony to be held in Nov this year, TK will also be receiving the Achievement Award for Sports and Development Award for National Education. Much credit goes to all TK staff for their efforts in going the extra mile for the students and school. I would also like to thank all PSG members for all your support and assistance in enhancing the quality of the education offering that TK provides. The awards are an affirmation of the solid work put in by the staff, students and stakeholders. However, we at TK believe that the awards are means to an end, not ends in themselves. Our goal and passion are not in the awards per se but the positive changes and benefits that working for the awards will bring. Thank you once again for your help and support as we walk this journey together to provide a most memorable education experience for our children.

Best regards, Yan Kheng
