Be Optimus Day..

Today's ACSJ Teacher's Day celebration and in conjunction with that, the school is celebrating 'Be Yourself Day' which is actually one of The New Paper's branding event. On BYD, the students are able to come dressed in any costumes that best express their personalities..it is also a charity event as students are also encouraged to make a donation to help TNP raise funds for the President's Charity.

Anyway...the theme of BYD in ACSJ was 'Heroes'. I was having a hard time trying to explain to Aidan the attributes of a hero. He keeps associating heroes with 'superheroes' & superpowers. So, I tried using examples like firemen who risked their lives saving people & their homes or policemen who help to keep law & order by catching thieves. But the boy rebutted that they were merely doing their job so why should they be considered heroes then. Alamak..how to answer ah?? I should tell him that all mothers should be considered heroes especially if their kids are as smart-alec as the one I have..

In the end, Aidan as you can see from the picture above, decided to go as Optimus Prime, who in his opinion, was the ultimate hero..Saving earth from the evil Megatron & the Decepticons and sacrificing his life to save Sam Witwicky. Oh well, who am I to argue with the boy...I blame the media & Hollywood :P

To all teachers out there, have a "Happy Teacher's Day!". Definitely not an easy job which requires tons of patience and understanding (especially if you got a kid like Aidan in your class..). I salute u guys!
