PBS Assessment: Giving Compliments and Responding Appropriately

Date: 28th January 2014 (Tuesday)
Venue: 2 Kathir

I was pleased with the PBS assessment carried out in 2 Set 1 today. Students showed seriousness in their work by discussing and preparing the dialogue. The dialogues were far from perfect but that was only to be expected. I've always reminded my students that it's all right to make  Giving students the opportunity to use English in the classroom is well worth the double period!  One thing I like about PBS is the listening/speaking component. It requires the teacher to take listening-speaking skills more seriously. Feedback was given immediately after their presentations. Congratulations to 2 Set 1 for trying their best!

Welcome to Tn Hj Sharif Junidek, Sasem's second principal

Welcome to Tn Hj Sharif Junidek, SASEM's second principal! Tn Hj Sharif hails from SMK Sri Sembrong, Kluang and was an ex-student and teacher of SM Sains Johor, a school I taught for 21 years. In addressing his first assembly today, he had a few important talking points for all students:
  • Tagline: "Anak yang baik mendengar kata"
  • The differences between "cerdik" and "pandai"
  • Being grateful to God always
  • See problems as challenges and challenges as opportunities
  • Teachers will take their oath ("Aku Janji") next week
His briefing with teachers touched on:
  • The need for teachers to support the head of the school
  • Empowering senior teachers
  • Empowering teachers
  • A teacher's touch
SASEM extends a warm welcome to Tn Hj Sharif Junidek. May SASEM scale to greater heights with your leadership.

Our new principal- Tn Hj Sharif Junidek
