Discovery Week - Pulau Redang by Science Society
For Discovery Week by
Science Society this year, 125 students and 6 teachers went to Pulau Redang. The
activities included fishing, snorkelling, diving, playing rugby and volleyball,
badminton on the beach and just sitting back and relaxing to the sound of the
We arrived at the resort at noon. After lunch, we were sent to our
designated chalets. We had a quick bath and
gathered outside for a lesson on how to make the rods for line fishing. A good
many of us learnt that the secret to catching something is the quality of bait.
The squids we were given proved particularly effective.
Fishing is a tough job. There were a ridiculous
number of knots to be tied and it was all so complicated. We could smell the
salty odor of the waves as the restless tide continuously pounded on our ankles.
Slowly but surely, we made our way to the water front and swung our rods out to
the sea. The calm weather was very welcoming as we patiently stood, waiting! The
first one came after a long wait. We all dropped our rods into the water. While
waiting, we also learnt that patience really is a
virtue, especially when it comes to fishing.
The fishing activity and relaxation time among teachers and friends were much
appreciated by all, especially after finishing our final exams. The variety of
activities provided ensured that we were never bored. Each one of us tried
different activities and we made many new friends from different year groups. We
were lucky to see some beautiful coral and some amazing marine life.
As we say goodbye to the island resort, we would also like to say goodbye to
some friends at the end of another academic year. Thanks also to the teachers
for helping us have such a fun Discovery Week. Without a doubt, going to Pulau
Redang was a worthwhile trip. It was full of fun, adventure and self-discovery.
