PPMP (1) meeting, SMK Simpang Renggam, Kluang

Date: 26 March 2012
Venue: SMK Simpang Renggam, Kluang, Johor

The first PPMP meeting was held today and chaired by Tn Hj Mohd Nor A. Ghani, Johor Education director. I certainly hope this is not the last. When it was my turn to speak I reported on a writing module the SPM PPMP is working on. As the chairperson for SPM English, I raised three matters:

  • the need to reevaluate the role of PPMP in the state- the role of PPMP has been producing module after module. There are questions as to whether these modules reach the schools and as to their effectiveness. I'm glad the Mathematics chairperson echoed my suggestion.My point was is there a real need for so many modules and is this the only role of the PPMP? We need to organise other things like conventions, ideas market, innovations etc. 
  • that schools rejuvenate it's co curricular activites at the school level- most schools only prepare students if there are competitions at the district or state levels.In this way, the English environment is kept alive in schools. This is in line with MBMMBI policy.
  • the quality of teacher's teaching and competency are more important- this can be achieved by having courses for teachers particularly when we have many new teachers and Heads of Panel now.
