Sort of 'forced' my school teachers to put together a debate team (students!) for the interschool debate competition. I knew forcing was required because looking after a debate team is just a lot of hard work. But the fun to be had, the experience to be got... all so priceless.
I remember my times in La Salle... those night hours spent in the school with the boys... the cakes sent over regularly by Pn Goh n others...and that was with the kids.
The times with the teachers were just as good. But being involved in debating as a coach is just so taxing. I don't know if I have enough brain cell juice left after nine years. I suppose if I had to, I would. But now it's time for others to go through the process I went through. I'm deliberately keeping away so the others will pick up the baton. Although it doesn't stop 'em from calling me about points and lines of argument.
But those were good times, weren't they?
