But No Use!

Ms Phua was advising Student D to behave and be more courteous when he speaks to his friends.
Student A who is usually not sociable was observing.
She approached Ms Phua and spoke hesitantly and loudly, “You sent him to the strictest teachers (pause) BUT NO USE !”
Wow ! You never know when they are watching and learning :o)!

St. James Power Station

The students had just finished doing a science experiment on different ways of connecting batteries and bulbs.

Ms Wendy asked them a question on how the circuit in the classroom for the lights was connected.
Zhong Wei responded curiously, “Ms Wendy, is there a very big battery somewhere in Singapore that connects to the lights in our home for the electricity?”

Ms Wendy: “No, we do not get electricity from batteries but from power stations.”
Nicholas suddenly exclaimed, “I know, it is from St James Power Station!”
