What do you remember about your Teachers' Day exploits back at school? Perhaps a few little gifts for your favourite teacher or a shy, hand-written note?

For this group of Maris Stella High School students - and one very cool female teacher - it involved making a mini Kung Fu spoof film that would put amateur filmmakers to shame.

Post by Tao Yi Jun.

There's the requisite Hong Kong-style credits in the beginning, references to famous fims such as Ip Man and Stephen Chow's Kung Fu Hustle, signature moves as well as a bloopers reel at the end.

The clever moral message embedded within the video just adds more meaning to the whole project.

And in case you're wondering about the impressive moves by teacher Tao Yi Jun, she's in fact a retired national wushu exponent who's a two-time SEA Games winner.

Oh, and there's also the small matter of her (seen in the picture below on the left) being a world champion, when along with teammates Tay Yu Juan (centre) and Emily Sin (right), she created local wushu history by triumphing in the women's duilian at the 2011 World Wushu Championships in Turkey.
