Nee Soon South CC


It started 12 weeks ago... with a total of 12 students.

I had a swim class with the Nee Soon South CC 12 weeks ago.. Today is the 12th lesson and marks the end of their swimming elementary Level 1. Due to the upcoming school holidays, I wouldn't be able to continue coaching them @ least till the beginning of next year....

You know, the thing about kids is that they don't lie.. Well, at least not at their age. =)

You can tell from their actions. These kids are the 1st batch of students that came 30mins before their lesson starts and rush to me when they saw me. One kid will shout and point.. "Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!" And all will rush to me as if I'm some SUPERSTAR or Actor... *blush* And they will offer to carry my boards for me... "Jerry, I help you take..."

Today, their 1st sentence to me was not that.. it was...

"Jerry.. Today last lesson already.. So fast, I'm not really happy"
Me: "Why?
"Because, no more swimming lesson. I cannot come to the swimming pool. I cannot see you."

Sometimes, its the way these kids put their words that they end up putting tears in my eyes...

I love this class! Cause of the kids smile and laughter.... And these kids really bond and help with each other... I see their encouragement in 1 another tot they know each other less than 3months...

And what makes this class so special is... 2 of the mothers join their kids in the lesson! That's cool.... I remember one of the mum saying tis to me... "Treat me as a kid... Teach me like a kid... I'm a child in swimming!"

This is 1 class that I will definately miss... =)

Sorry kids, I will see you guys next year January..hopefully...
