Author: Chandra Riveros Ferret. Chandra is a student at Singapore Genius School Krabi. He was task to be the Chairman to plan and organize our Christmas Celebration. This is another excellent project “By Students For Students”. Do enjoy reading.
During this school year, we started doing projects under “for students by students” where each one of the students are required to organize a celebration for the rest of the school to enjoy. This year I was lucky enough to be assigned to organize the Christmas party. This is mostly everyone’s favorite holiday to celebrate so I knew I was tasked with a very difficult assignment. I did not want to let anyone down so it became very hard to pull off one whole day of fun because there was so much to be done. We had to organize the decorations upstairs and downstairs. I needed to organize the games and all the prizes for the games. We also needed to organize the whole entire schedule from when we started, to lunch, to having parents come and showing them where to go. And finally I needed to find the movies on the internet that we would watch, Preparing invitation cards for the parent was most complex. We had to make it cute and yet nice and we even did a plan on how to greet and bring them to the function area.
However, I do not deserve all the credit because I was able to assign different tasks to different people. This is a collective and shared work. I oversaw the work to make sure it was done accordingly. Shyama made all the decorations for the party and had help from both upper and lower primary students to color, cut, glue and set up. Teacher JP helped me create the invitation cards to send to the parents for Christmas. For our dance moves Teacher Kristina for Christmas celebration, she even taught us to sing Jingle Bell Rock. Teacher Xin was in charge of the nursery’s dance performance, he taught them their dance and had them practice over and over. Their performance was absolutely adorable. Inju and Kalavati had to perform “All I Want for Christmas” as a duet and it was very well done. We had a number from our Zumba class. Before our party, we had to finish some last-minute decorations. Then we started the fun with Christmas games. Then we all sat down and watched Christmas Chronicles. After the movie, we then had our lunch. It was delicious. Once we were all full then we watched Home Alone, a classic Christmas movie. Once the movie was over then the parents began showing for the celebration. In the end, everything was perfect. The dances went smoothly and all of the songs were very well done. Santa even made a guest appearance and brought all of the students presents! Nursery and primary school students all received a present and they absolutely loved it. It was a lot of fun. All the parents that came brought a potluck and so after the performances and presents we had a great big feast with everyone while listening to Christmas songs.
Everyone said the party was fun and all the students and parents had a great time. Our Christmas celebration was one to remember and it was nice to be able to celebrate with everyone. It was a great experience.
