  • 20/8/2007 Thanks for your response.  Right now, I'm in New Zealand attending an AFS Educators'Program.  I'll be returning to Malaysia this Saturday.  I will definitely get back to you when things are more settled once I get back to Malaysia.  Say, give me about a week's time before I discuss anything with you regarding any collaborative project that I might carry out with your school.

    • Feedback   from Veronica  
    • Thanks Anne for giving us the opportunity to be part of your presentation.  I could see right after the performance how motivated our students were.  I suppose that’s the reality and impact of having performed in real time to a real audience in another part of the world.  And all this despite the fact that they could not see them, the real audience in the hall!
