|My former alma mater|
A little bit of history here. I was a victim of the primary school streaming system. In which Primary 4, I was actually quite lazy and as a consequence, I was streamed into the EM3 class. So meaning that I had to take the longer route unlike those who got into EM2 or EM1. So naturally, with my mediocre grades, I was in the "normal technical" class in secondary school and progressed into the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), in which I had no other choice really from the courses I can choose. The motto of ITE College East is "It's my choice"... So much for that crap. Anyways, enough about me ranting on how f-ed up the Singapore education system is, its time to share my memories of my ITE life.
NITEC First Year
|Bangla for a day|
The first year is the general topics. As far as I can remember, I learnt how to fix and make piping, making gaskets for pipe fittings, masonry, welding and bending copper pipes for air conditioning refrigerant to flow thru. To be frank, there's really not much for me in the first year as there isn't much of "my kind" to mingle with.
2nd year of my course. That was when my classmates went our separate ways as we were divided in to specialization classes. Some of them went into "Air Conditioning Services" while those with better results can choose to specialize in "Mechanical and Engineering Services". From this, we learnt how to do wiring for emergency fixtures, mend fire alarm panels,
But it was during this time I had found some of my classmates that I am able to relate and get along well as well as made some of the best ever lasting memories in my college life.
And apparently, while I was doing work, one of them borrowed my phone and took these....
At one point, we took a trip to Changi Airport.
And to top it all off, like many other school "clicks", we went to Hari Raya visiting together. Sadly, this was our last outing as a group. And went out separate ways after that.
Glad to have shared by ITE photos here! Sweet memories for me!
