Induction September 2016

Two weeks ago, the Form 5 Monitors joined the Prefects for the first time in preparing and planning for the annual induction games for the new Form 3s and 4s. It was quite an experience for the Monitors and they all learnt something new from the orientation, let’s hear what they had to say:

I have a whole new sympathy for teachers now … –Carlos

 I found the induction activity a very good opportunity for the Lower School students to bond and know each other better –Vincent

 The whistle was my best friend  –Alisar

 The new students kept to themselves at first, but by the end of the activities, everyone was having fun and getting involved –Thomas

 Leading students was a great experience that allowed us to develop our teamwork and communication skills; it reminded me of my f3 experience! Time flies     —Earn

 I had great fun with all the new students and made a lot of new friends. It also feels very good to be older than everyone else —Donna

 Never thought it would be hard to organize this kind of activities before, until we spent two days to try different games and plan the orientation. Miss the time that we could always get somewhere to sit in the dining hall when others had not arrived yet!      –Britina

 The monitor training was a very exciting and enjoyable experience. I met with a lot of senior and junior prefects which we went together to practice the dance and games preparing for the new coming students. It took us only one day, but just in that day I learnt to be a leader and to cooperate with others –Jimmy

 Being the leader was tough, but it was a really good experience for me to meet  new students and help them to settle in Concord –Lavine

 The games sessions with the new Form 3s and 4s was not only a challenge for them to meet new people, but also for us! We all met so many new people, and had a fun experience doing it —Amy

 It was great to meet all the new form 3 and 4s at the beginning of the year, and to be a part of their start at Concord   —Chorley

So you see, that’s what we actually feel when we were doing activities with you! Concord is new to you and you guys are also new to us, but indeed we had a lot of fun together and it’s really nice to be friends with you. Hopefully we did help you to settle in more easily!
