For English Proficiency, the students learned how to introduce themselves properly.

In line with the celebration of National Heroes’ Day, frontliners such as teachers, doctors, nurses, firefighters and the like are all given recognition. They are all considered the unsung heroes of this generation.

“It’s always seemed impossible until it’s done. We should keep moving forward and never be afraid to go out of our comfort zones. One Midway, Midway strong.” says Ms. Suratos in closing.
