Celebrating Teacher’s Day
Last week, the hardworking men and women of Singapore were treated to a long weekend of Hari Raya Haji celebrations (all due respect to those who had to return to work, we hope you’ve been remunerated well). In the world of education, there were more reasons to celebrate as we praise and honour the educators who teach and shape our future generation.
TMC Academy celebrates Teacher’s Day with a morning of team bonding activities at “The Cage”. In contrary to what the venue name suggests, no one was locked up and dealt with lethal blows like you would see in a MMA cage fight. In fact, it was a great opportunity for both teachers and support staff to flex their muscles while bonding with colleagues from different departments in sports games like Combat Archery and Pool Ball. We’d let the photos do the talking!
Through the games, we discovered hidden talents in colleagues who can play pool ball with their buttocks, draw an arrow in the opposite direction (thus aiming at self or own team mates *chuckles*) and potential star strikers for international football leagues. Jokes aside, the building of camaraderie was visibly demonstrated during the session.
After all the sweat and tears of laughter, the staff gathered for a speech by Ms Yeow, Chief Executive Chairman of TMC Academy. She spoke about TMC’s core values of Professionalism, Affinity, Continuous Improvement and Empowerment, and how she was glad to see it exhibited amongst colleagues in that morning of activities. Ms Yeow also highlighted the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle at work and TMC’s involvement in promoting this movement. Most notably, we have been invited to speak at the 15th Annual World Health Congress, sharing our growth in this healthy workforce journey.
Ms Yeow also took the chance to present the awards for Staff of the Month to our well deserving colleagues, and to the top 2 winning teams who thrashed the rest and scored the most points in the games!
What’s the best way to wrap up the session? A buffet lunch to feed our hungry and weary colleagues! We would like to thank the HR team who organised this event and to the enthusiastic staff at “The Cage” who facilitated the games. Last but not least, Happy Teacher’s Day!
