Each year Primacy sets aside 4 days to bring special emphasis to our Four Pillars. This last week our community took part in our Develop Wisdom Day, which ranged in activities to stimulate the growth of wisdom in an active young mind. The day started off with a special Chapel, led by Dr. Adams, and focusing on wisdom from the one true God. Students then shifted into active learning rotations to solve various group challenges, then the day ended with a Primacy Essentials videos presented by each house.
During the Double-Ten National holiday thirteen students went to care for others with warm hearts. Primacy students acted as scorekeepers, receptionist and photographers for Boccia Taiwan’s open game of 2019 at Da-An sports center.

This is my third time going on a volunteer trip like this. Every time I went to a different country, I can’t say which one is my favorite because each one has its own unique culture and people. First time I went to Cambodia, then China and now Nepal.
I learned their clapping games, and we taught them ours. They taught us their traditional dances and we danced with them. we played together during break times and during class we taught them English, music, soccer and some handcrafts. We learned from them and they learned from us.
During these trips I see and learn a lot of things that I won’t see in the city. The kids may not be rich or have all the things that we have. The technology may not be as advanced as us. But they still live happily and so carefree.
In the city everything is so easily accessible, we think everything we get has always been there and always will be. But in a lot of places in the world that is not the case. Unless you really live like them and experience their life, you will not understand how much we have now and how lucky we are to have been born in this part of the world.
What I’m saying may be cliche, but it is truly how I feel about it, or I wouldn’t be coming to these trips over and over again. It’s my third time and I’m definitely going a fourth. It’s not only us helping and teaching them, they also taught me so much.
Even though it was a dreary day in Taipei, smiles were shining on faces in Linkou for the first Primacy Student Association Day in this school year. Student leaders planned out an exciting day of group games and team building events. Highlights included Hamsterball Soccer, archery, and a basketball challenge. Each House also performed a song with original lyrics.
To re-introduce itself, the Game Club at TPCA hosted a Connect 4 Tournament, with the hope of also spreading gaming culture and encouraging more such inter-house gaming events in future. The tournament kicked off on 4th September with twenty-four people entering (4 from every house). That number has been whittled down to eight who will play in the second round this week. Top positions will win house points.
