Is this celebration too extreme?

Called me stingy but I feel we must impart the right values even when showing appreciation to the Teachers.

Thus, I am thankful that my DD PSG are not that extravagant even though they are very "on". In fact, the Teachers asked the students not to splurge on gifts. :salute:

They should let the student reward those good teachers, not not a blanket reward for everyone including those who doesn't deserve it..

I don't understand. How extravagant was extravagant? It looks like a catered lunch in the school hall. If the gifts and chocolates were donated by parents, what's wrong?

most parents don't even know there is such a gathering

understand the donation is free will type, why can't people just take their word (RPA) literally when they said no compulsion means no compulsion?

totally uncalled for remarks

I am not defending the organisers or the RPA. I have been involved in some schools' fund raising and before, including the 1823 Fund. free will means free will. simple english

This catered lunch is just simply lunch.

Should 'bochap', and show own appreciation for the work of teachers in other ways. Not everyone can afford to spend on celebrations...

And also how many employees are being appreciate by having a free trip or free big lunch?
