Puzzle Hysteria!

By Iris Ng (Class of 2021)

On February 15, 2019, the Developing Virtue Secondary Girls School came together to try to crack the 500-piece puzzles under one hour.

We separated into 6 groups, five to six to a group, straining our eyes to connect the puzzle pieces one by one. Multiple hands on one tiny table and working together, all of the teams managed to piece together the colorful yet vibrant borders and many of the teams’ puzzles took form after only one mere hour.

It was challenging as it stimulated our brains but we also found it quite addicting as many individuals came back to complete the puzzles.

“It’s really satisfying to finish the puzzle, seeing the head-wrenching puzzle pieces form into a meaningful picture.”

All in all, puzzles gradually won the hearts of the school as many fell in love with the complex nature of puzzles because of the competition we had.
