#Parents slam #Raffles Institution for "#extravagant" #Teachers' Day luncheon

Really? What i find outrageous is the comments here, not so much the teachers day. From my understanding, on teachers day every year, ri boys prepare a class dish for their teacher. If you say ri boys are ungrateful, then think again. To the stomper parent who wrote in, i hope you understand the full picture before blowing this matter up. For one, it is teacher's day, and teachers at least have a good rest on that day, given that teachers all around have done so much to help students. Is it then wrong to appreciate their effort through a dinner? Whats more, the dinner is held at a boarding facility where boarders take their meals. Its hardly extravagent. Also, RI parents have been told for what reason they have donated, and the parent's association even kindly requested for any good hearted donations for this meal. So threre is no reason for parents to complain about this.
