He was a junior swimmer in the club.

And he won Singapore’s first Olympic Gold Medal.

So, Joseph Schooling becomes SICC Swimming Ambassador.

And he was given a Honorary Membership.  With the membership nuer S5039 matching his Olympic Records.  Something for him to remember for winning the Olympic Gold Medal.

So, we came to the club to witness this historical moment.

To teach kids how to become patriotic… is to bring kids to see their national heroes.

Today, they finally got the chance to meet this national hero.  Joseph Schooling.

Kay Kay even brought his favourite book – Pokemon book for Joseph to autograph.

Alamak!  The security stopped us, say that “Cannot autograph Pokemon Books”.

I think this is the book for charity.  $20 for the book and most of the cost goes into charity.  So kind of it.

You can become a hero too.

Don’t have to win a Olympic Gold Medal.

As long as you contributed your efforts in helping the country any way that you can, you already become a hero to that country.

This is how I am teaching both Jay and Kay.
