The last day practicum ended with teacher’s day celebrations. So, there is no lesson for the whole day. The day before, I feel no mood to go and I think that, not even going to get a single present from the students thus, I not a permanent teacher in that school, just a practicum students for 15 days. However, I have to full-filled requirement this course to complete 15 days of professional experience.
The highly-anticipated day has already come. The dress code for that is party wear with sunglasses. While, I and my friend, doing gate duty in morning, one of the children, give me a small teddy with my note “Thank you”. I ‘m shock for while. I feel very impressed, thus, she is one my favourite child among the others children in that school. Later, the children participate in game such as make up their friends and sing teacher’s day song together with the teachers. Furthermore, there are also champion award giving for the children who done well in their first term. Next, I had my snack time together with the children and photograph session. Moreover, there are some children give me some present even, I do not know or teach them. They have made my day, I feel extremely happy on that day.
