YOG Torch Relay- Cheering the Torch!

Today has been an eventful day, having started at 8.00am when our VS Wushu Team went down to Kallang CC to perform for the National Day Observance ceremony.

At 2pm, we brought our drums and instruments down to the junction of Siglap Road and Marine Parade Road to cheer the YOG torch as it passed by from St Patricks to ITE.

The ASEAN scholars had practiced with me some drumming as we are twinning with Zimbabwe during the games period. So we brought our tribal rhythms down to the road and infused it with the unqiue VS Spirit!

We were very well received by the various contingents and delegates as they went by in the buses. The waves, smiles and cheers were just fantastic. Even the general public in their various modes of transport stopped to take pictures of us :)

Best of all, was when the we found out that the torch was approaching, carried by our Head Prefect, Surya-- it was then that we pumped up the volume and all gathered together to cheer with pride for VS and for the nation!

More to come when I update this blog with further YOG events that we are involved in!
