Freeze When The Bell Goes Off

Postby kangshao » Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:41 pm

Hi guys!

Do you remember in your younger primary school days when you have to freeze when the recess bell goes off? Freeze for 5 seconds before assemble back at the concourse?

Its funny when we are thinking back now.

Lol. That sounds fun. But I don't think I had it back then. What's the rationale for "freezing"?

Not every primary school has this practice. Mine didn't but my secondary school was next to a primary school that had this practice. Even the milk delivery man would freeze when he was walking towards his van. I thought it a creative and effective practice to settle the boisterous recess kids.

Eh... the triangular packet milk must pay money de. Comes in 3 flavors.

The skinny kids were given those milk powder in plain packaging, FOC. I was one of those skinny kids. That milk taste really yucky :sick:

Yes time stop for a few seconds. Kids treated it serious back then. But it can be very inconvenient when you are in a middle of a toilet action. :imconstipated:

Everything must stop, cannot move! if not prefack book. :spank:

I do, I do! Now that you mention it, we had that in primary school! Also remember that only prefects were allowed to go around, and some notorious primary 8 students would 'cheat' or make funny actions when no authorities were around.
