DVC OI!!! sighhh im suffering from DVC (discovery vacation camp) withdrawal syndrome. spending 5 whole days with the kids, i got so attached to them and they with me, and NOW I MISS THEM!!!
well, at first i kinda regretted signing up to be a leader of DVC. cos im spending one whole week at camp, that means no time for studying. and everyone knows how much i can study in one week. ya, so its kinda like wasting my time. BUT NO! as the days went by, i knew i wouldn't regret what i was doing. i enjoyed myself so much. and it was like a very fufilling job, being able to work with kids. i took care of P2 and P3 kids. A7 OI!
at mac ritchie
i met all sorts of kids. cute ones, naughty ones, rebellous ones, ah-beng ones, spoilt ones, gu-niang ones, sticky ones etc etc, you get my point. you may think that kids are innocent little beings, but sorry you are so wrong! my goodness. these kids can pull ur limbs off! like what they almost did to me and the others. but well, i got to relive my primary school days. playing catching, mr. wolf, pepsi-cola and blind mice. i haven't played those games for ages! i couldn't rmb how to play them.
oh a tip: when you make a promise to a kid, rmb to carry it out. or dun make empty promises. kids will rmb what you promised them!
and these kids are smart. SMART i tell you. they learn things that i learnt in secondary school or now! things like the browning of fruits, air and water pressure etc. i feel so stupid.
bringing them to mac ritchie was a challenge. man, i felt like their maid. helped them carry their stuff, help them wear their rain coat, hold their hand. and they kept complaining about the hot sun when the sun was out, and the rain when the rain came down, and that they are very tired from all the walking when they onli walked less then 3km! tsk tsk, kids...
my parnter, Nora, is a super funny girl. she is good at handling kids. and she has helped at DVC for the past 2 years already. and she'll be helping again nxt week. wah! she must have a lot of energy to take up another week. too bad this time she'll be taking the upper pri kids. ALONE. all the best girl! my 3 favourite boys
i realli enjoy talking to the kids. when you talk to them, you can really understand how they think. and they tell you alot of interesting and amusing stuff. kids these days, they say the darnest things. haha.
DVC leaders: gil, shirin, leanne, me and weifen
well, after those 5 days, though tired and drained as we are, i dare say that all of us enjoy ourselves alot. i learnt alot from this camp. not onli did i learn stuff i nvr knew in school, but also how to handle kids better. seriously. and i think i developed alot of patience through this. kids are not easy to handle. *breathe in breathe out* I MISS THE KIDS!!!
