The Director's First Visit

Date: 14 August 2011 (Sunday)
Time: 9.00 - 1.30 p.m


Yes, your eyes are not playing tricks on you! The Director of Sekolah Kluster and Kecemerlangan (BPSBPSK) Tn Hj Rosland Hussein decided to pay SM Sains Sembrong a visit on a Sunday. So all fourteen of us were dressed in our best and ready to receive him and Cik Hjh Zakiah at 9.00 a.m. Despite the power shortage, we had a cordial and beneficial meeting. The director went on a tour of the school and walked all the way to the surau and hostels ignoring the blistering heat. In his meeting with the teachers, he had high hopes for the school and had many important pointers to share:
  • the excellent infrastructure in SM Sains Sembrong is part of the transformation in SBP which includes excellent input, facilities and selected teachers
  • use the 5S and X-PLUS principles as a guide
  • encouraging networking and linkages with local companies and  higher educational institutions such as IPTHO and UTM
  • teaching has changed- students are more advanced than teachers in ICT for instance
  • the use of tablet PCs in the classroom
  • lesson-study as a way to improve the quality of teaching
  • use the principles of caring (kasih sayang) and respect with students- teachers to act like parents in accordance with the idea of 'loco parentis'
  • encouraging freedom with responsiblity among students
  • encouraging community service citing Singapore as an example
  • benchmarking other SBPs 
  • procurement of library books through the Asian foundation, MPH, DBP 
  • GCs must lead in school and divide their responsibilities well :)


Tn Hj Rosland, En Basir, and Cik Hjh Zakiah
