With the completion of this year's Veloci-T Camp, I have come full circle in VS and this marks the culmination of my service to Victoria School.
I have spent 7 1/2 years here and these have been the best years of my life.
In this time, I have taught them lessons in theory indoors and camped with them to experience life's lessons outdoors.
We have trained together, hiked together, sung together, kayaked from East Coast to Changi, cooked dinner together over open fires, shot each other during Night Missions and even drummed together during the YOG.
and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
and having perhaps the better claim
because it was grassy and wanted wear;
though as for that, the passing there
had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
in leaves no feet had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference
To all Victorians: past, present and future, take care
Always remember that even when we leave Victoria,
Victoria lives in us.
