Nothern Regionals 2011

From the South, we move on to the North to see what our OTs have to say about the Northern Regional Lasallian Convention :)

I found it a very challenging experience. It was a good opportunity for me to test my people-skills as well as being able to communicate with people. It also gave me the opportunity to learn about what fellow Lasallians think.

I also had the chance to get to know the senior FT members better, like Jason, Kok Loong and everyone. It also gave me a better perception and view of the Lasallian mission.
-- Kenny Liew, OT


So there I was onlining one night when suddenly I received a text message from Isaac inviting me to be the co-chairperson for the Northern Regionals along with my partner-in-crime, Kok Loong. After quickly checking dates and exchanging a few SMS-es with Kok Loong, I accepted the invite, hoping my uni wouldn't schedule any final exam papers the day after the convention (They didn't. Kok Loong wasn't so lucky though).

Being a chairperson for a convention was definitely a different experience compared to being a normal OT. While a normal OT usually only has to focus on his/her own sub-com, a chairperson needs to actively know what's going on with each and every sub-com. It was also a learning experience for me as it gave me a chance to gain a deeper understanding on how each of the sub-coms worked, especially the sub-coms that I had never had the chance to be involved in.

Being the chairperson also made me realize how relatively old I was. The Organizing Team for this year's Northern was one of the youngest I had ever seen and for a vast majority of them, it was their first time organizing a Lasallian convention. I must say that considering the youthfulness of the team, they did a impressive job organizing the convention. It was wonderful to see their dynamism and exuberance in getting the job done.

I must congratulate them for taking the step up from being delegates to being OTs and in keeping with the theme, Forward with Faith, I hope they keep the faith well into the future. Faith in themselves, faith in service, and faith in the community around them. The Lasallian faith.

Southern Regionals 2011

The Southern Regional Lasallian Convention this year is my very first regional in Semenanjung. It is indeed a whole different experience for me as I've taken up a different responsibility from my Regional days in Sarawak. Apart from being an OT, I was also a chairperson, and facilitator.

Facilitating was never a thing I would want to do before this. But the very reason why I've decided to be a facilitator is because I've been involved with the organizing team for a while now and I think it is time for me to try something different. Then Isaac asked Teck Peng and I if we wanted to be the chairpersons for this convention. I had no idea how I'm going to do it but I agreed with it thinking that I'm just going to move Forward with Faith.

Towards the end of the convention, I felt glad that I've been to the convention, and accepted these responsibilities. For me, it's like taking a short break from work in university to experience the positive energy of our fellow delegates, teachers as well as the OTs. I have always been glad to be involved in the Lasallian activities because these are the time for me to meet my favourite people as well as new friends. :)

-- Lovena Tay, Chairperson

For this year's Southern Regionals, I was one of the organising team members. The theme for this year's convention was quite a unique theme for me that ‘Forward with Faith’ as it involves a lot in our daily life. I learn a lot from the sessionsand it was a good theme that shows us how strong our faith is, not just for God, but with the people around us and ourselves.

It was a personal journey for me as well, as I took a more active role this year compared to last year. I am happy that the convention was a success even though there were a few hiccups along the way. This year's convention was a great convention for me as I learnt a lot. This convention is not about the culture or religion, but it is a way to show that we live in a world not just to have a wonderful life but to share with others who are in need so they can have a wonderful life too.
-- Fathimy, OT

La Salle Brickfield's Contribution

Of their own volition and through the capable hands of their very committed teacher, La Salle Brickfields brings to the table their own version of Earth Hour-Day.

In collaboration with the Earth day celebration, I showed my students some video clips on Earth Day, a few animal planet Earth Day promotional video clips (of which I got them from Toh Shaw Shiuan from St Andrew's Muar), and then we sang some songs.

After that we had a reflection session on how we can save the world in our own might or capability. I passed around a piece of paper on which they can write their earth day pledge and give their very own 'stamp of approval' on it. It sdidn't have to be something big, it can be something that we can start to put to practice everyday.

Though only five members turned up, I personally feel that quantity is not as important as the quality that we would like to instill in our students, i.e. the sense of responsibility to our environment @ mother earth.
-- Mr. Siew Weng Keong

St Joseph's Kuching does their part

St Joseph's Kuching does their part for Earth Hour-Day. Here's a short sharing from Lasallians Gabriel Wong and Reuben Then:

Gathering at the Park, armed with rubbish bags, ready to battle :)

We gathered at the reservoir park at 8.30a.m, with teachers, Puan Stella and Puan Freda.

After that, Nicky briefed us about what we were to do. We were then separated into smaller groups so more areas of the park can be covered quickly.

We met many people while cleaning up the park, and some of the senior citizens also praised us for the time and effort taken in cleaning the park. One of them was our very own Lasallian Brother, Brother Justin!

Personally, it felt good being able to do my part for Mother Nature. Although it wasn’t much, but it’s a belief that a small gesture goes a long way. It felt even better after some of the senior citizen who was walking there in the park approached us and complimented us for the time taken to help clean up the park.

At the end of the day, the only feeling to describe it was just AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME, and it left me wanting for more. Caring and taking care of Mother Nature should go on, instead of just the one day in conjunction of Earth Day. Peace!
--Gabriel Wong

Cleaning up balloons from a leftover party

Reuben and Peter doing their part
When I first started doing the cleaning up, I felt a bit unwilling as I have never done it before. I even questioned myself to why should I do it. But as I get into the task, something struck me and I did it with an open heart. I never knew it can be much fun especially when you have friends doing it with you, who believe in the cause for what they are doing it for. I learnt that from the worst job or task that we are asked to do, there is always something fun and positive behind it.
