Well, after a gruelling 24 hours, we've all took stock of the work we had done. As you can see from the picture above, Sec 2A my form-class did quite well. Despite the constant mischeivousness of the boys and the frenzied nagging and scolding from Miss Lim and me, what started out as 'chicken scratches' eventually grew into the floor mural we had envisioned as a class.
Also, as Saturday is our Speech Day I had set myself a personal challenge to produce a new video compiling all the footage of themselves in action. It was with a great sigh of relief that I finished the final edit at about 6am. I left Windows Movie Maker to compile and publish the video and went off to pack up. To my horror, Windows Movie Maker crashed each time it attempted to compile the movie! Great! 24 hours of non-stop editing, filming down the drain because of Microsoft!
It was pure trouble shooting from then on: from reinstalling codecs, to finding conflicting programes to surfing forum support groups,- I was on the verge of really losing my composure. But through it all, I took support and heart from a group of boys that despite severe setbacks and failures, they continued to revise, revision and rework their Victorian Challenge such that they could deliver a project with pride (to Subra, Paul and gang- well done!)
We will not be overcome with defeat and we somewhere,some how, we will find a way.
So after an extended 'Victoria Challenge', I present to you the new, re-edited, re-compiled, new Xiao-Xiao Production Video "Our Very Best!"
Victoria We Give to You Our Very Best!
