Tchoukball tips from Coach.

Hi Mr Dass,
Please pass this message to the students.

When doing entry pass, make sure your leg doesn't cross the line.

When there is  a foul, quickly tap the ball and start. Don't waste time waiting or deciding who to tap.

Make use of 3 steps/side shooting. It will increase chances of scoring. If they are too close to the forbidden zone, do 1 or 2 step shooting.

Finally, do not argue among yourselves. Always stay focussed until the match is over. All the best to you and see you tomorrow.

Please read these articles.

Education Minister Ng Eng Hen, who joined the celebrations at Admiralty Primary School, said Singapore's unity and harmony should not be taken for granted. This is because if bombs are to go off here, ties that have taken decades to build may be fractured.

What do you treasure about Racial Harmony in Singapore? Comments please.

Selected comments...

"I treasure my non-chinese friends though I do not have alot . Without Racial Harmony we will have lots of riots ... my father said during one riot ( I forgot which one ), his parents were very worried and told him and his sibilings to hide and the room and lock the door for safety . I do not want to experience that , not going to school to see my teachers and friends . And without Racial Harmony we would not have any chance to have friends from different races and the opportunity to wear and try out the different races traditional costumes :D" - Zheng Xuan

" Let us hope that our future generations treasure racial harmony and peace in Singapore, as some other countries do not have what we have today." - Jolene Kong

"I treasure the moments I share with my multi-racial friends usually during soccer games." Marcus Ho
