To be respectful to others and views of others, even in times of disagreement
To be consistent, sincere and be truthful in one’s actions
Go the extra mile
To pursue excellence
in all things
To be upright in word
Work together with others in order to achieve a goal
There was a corn kernel called Mr Pop. He was small, ugly and incapable. His friends made fun of him and thought he will not be useful in life. At first, Mr Pop felt demoralized and frustrated with his small stature and limited abilities. However, just like a corn kernel being exposed to the heat, oil and pressure in the popcorn making machine, Mr Pop with renewed determination chose to persevere through the pressures and challenges of life. Eventually Mr Pop emerged from it as a flavourful, sweet smelling, crunchy popcorn in all its buttery, sugary goodness. Mr Pop was charming, strong and confident, all his friends looked in awe and wanted to follow in his example.
The fragrant smell of popcorn permeating the air, the popping sound produced by the popcorn machine…entices all five senses, doesn’t it? TSC’s mascot – Mr Pop does that too. Just like Mr Pop our hope and wish for every child is to be resilient and persevere through the many stressors and challenges that life may bring. We want them to develop their fullest potential and flourish in life.
