This is a guest post by Alex Devadass, a former Vice Principal from MOE Singapore.

Max (not his real name) wrote: I woke up, had breakfast, watched television, played computer games, revised my work, watched television, showered and then had dinner when my parents came home. This happened every day of my June holidays. The usual things happening. I missed school and my friends.

After every holiday period, I would always ask my students what they did and whether they enjoyed the holidays. Sometimes I would get them to reflect and write a piece of journal entry on their holidays and their experiences. Each time, I would get a range of replies and reflections...
