Teachers Day Rally and Mass Lecture

If you were wondering how to pass the time while attending the the Teachers' Day Rally or the Mass Lecture, here's one suggestion: play Bingo!

We've made a 4x4 Bingo set. To play is simple, mark each of the boxes when the event or initiative described within it is announced by either PM Lee or Mr Tharman. You win if you can get 4 announcements in any row or column; you are then required to jump up from your chair shouting "BINGO!!!" as loudly as possible in order to claim your prize.

The initiatives which might be announced are:
* smaller classes
* professional development opportunities for teachers
* hiring more "native" speakers to teach English
* any mention of NE or patriotism
* more teachers
* yet another acronymic campaign (eg TLLM)
* specialised curriculum; initiatives in life sciences, IT multimedia
* entrepreneurship
** more teacher aides or adjunct teachers
* pay rise
* Mr Tharman steps down
* "many peaks" (mention of sports school, arts school or any specialised schools)
* more tie-ups with overseas universities
* easier entry for foreigners and returning S'poreans into schools
* service learning
* any mention of IT

We've created a sample Bingo card. You can just print it out, or you can modify it by moving the squares around. Really hope to hear "BINGO!" at the Expo!.
