TK1 Nite 2012

“Welcome to one of the most enjoyable events of the year for parents at TK!” Parents who had registered for this amazing event were greeted with this phrase at the registration booth at the foyer by the enthusiastic PSG members. Upon entering the school compound, new parents had anxiousness and excitement written all over their faces. Indeed, they were looking forward to the wonderful event. The event focused on allowing parents to get acclimatised to the school environment and also get to meet the staff members of the school.
After registration, the parents were ushered to the school canteen by Emily and her PSG team as well as Mdm Halilahs efficient and extremely helpful Student Councillors. This was done to initiate the first part of TK1Nite which was the school tour. The parents got to view the conducive school environment and also bear witness to the numerous facilities that the school has to offer. Furthermore, they got to see the classrooms in which their child/children were studying in! The students had an assignment previously to design a table top to beautify their desks and also reflect their targets for the year. Undoubtedly, parents were impressed with this and also wrote down notes to further motivate their children.
In the auditorium, the Principal introduced the subject teachers. This was followed by a short talk to the parents to help facilitate the transition of their child from primary to secondary school. At the end of the auditorium segment, the Principal handed out letters of appointment and appreciation to both the new and old PSG members.
Next came the hall segment. A montage about the school was displayed and our PSG Chairperson, Norsiah gave an insight on how the PSG works and also encouraged new parents to join the PSG family. The parents then had a scrumptious dinner with the Principal and teachers on wonderfully decorated tables. The ideas on how to decorate the tables come from creative new PSG members. Furthermore, Norsiah gave a brilliant idea which was to thank parents by giving them mouth-watering cupcakes that had initials “TK PSG” on them.
After the event, Sec 1 parents gave back feedback forms that reflected very positive results. The feedback showed that the event was a fun, enriching and unique experience for them. Indeed, this was a reward for PSG members, staff members and student councillors for all their hard work to make TK1Nite a success. A big thanks to all and looking forward to next years TK1Nite!Article written by Rinku
