Grace Christian

It used to be Grace Christian High School when I was an elementary school student but now it’s called Grace Christan College. I also found out that last year was its 60th anniversary. This was a school that changed my life and my family’s life. So glad to have an opportunity to visit.

Grace School

This was a place where my classmates and I used to play jacks, jump rope, and share snacks. It’s also where my brothers and I wait for our ride home. Ah, memories. The Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom ….


I visited the school with my brother who ran into his former Biology high school teacher and the one who gave him his first Bible. He told her that he went into the ministry in part because of her influence. She told us that this was her 35th year teaching! The thought of how many students’ lives she touched astounds me.

Former Teacher

I jumped at the opportunity to observe a weekly chapel service for high school students. There was singing, a sermon, and some announcements. When I was a student, I use to be in these pews. I sat in the back to observe naughty students who were passing notes, comparing cell phones, and getting caught by their teachers. Reminded me of my early days … quite amusing now that I’m an outsider looking in.


Seeing these little girls in their school uniform definitely reminded me of myself. I had the white shirt, maroon skirt, white socks, and black shoes. What I didn’t have were the gigantic roller bags with all their books in it. I remember carrying my book bag on my shoulders and developing bad posture because of it! :-)

Elementary Students

Seeing my nephew Nathan at Grace is like coming full-circle. It’s the same school, same routine, even the same food stalls. It’s comforting to know that some things don’t change.

    Dear Ms Hao,

    It seemed that everytime I come to your post, there are something new and exciting you come across. I feel lucky for you. Life isn’t that boring after leaving SMIC afterall eh?

    Btw, it doesn’t cost a cent to keep our blogs up right? Because I might start using it again for a class and put new posts in there. Drop by once in awhile to see something new again!
