  • THE HUNT FOR THE MISSING MR TANOn 29 MARCH BETWEEN 9.45AM AND 10AMWe pretended that our English teacher, Mr Tan, was missingfrom class. He vanished like ice in the sun after teaching ussimiles. We were very worried and decided to look for him. Wehad to look out for him and spy what he was doing between9.45 and 10am. However, we must not call or alert him. Weneeded to inform the Form Teacher with evidence that he haddisappeared from class without a reason because we care andare concerned for him.
  • We decided to divide our tasks so that some of us couldhave our recess break first while others tried to huntfor him and later switched our roles. We wrote downwhatever observations we made in our investigationsusing our notebook so that we could compare notes witheach other and put up a class writing for Mdm Ng.First, we snooped around the school canteen. Wespotted him at the round table holding two books.
  • Then he got up and walked in the direction of thestaircase.As quiet as a mouse, we followed him up to the secondlevel. He stopped by at the water cooler at 9.52am andthirsty like a camel in the desert, stooped to drink somewater. Then he walked towards the library as sure-footed as a goat.
  • After depositing the two books into the drop-box, heheaded for the staff room. However, he met a lady atthe entrance and paused to exchange some words withher at 9.56am. We could not hear what they weretalking about because their voice was soft like a whisperbut we could see Mr Tan’s face was beaming like sunlightafter the brief conversation.We had so much fun that we wanted to play the gameagain.
