Hari Raya Get-together for Teachers and Staff

Enjoyed this gathering..simple but joyful and the food was delicious, especially the rendang. We are so lucky to have the new canteen operator. Everything I tasted was to my liking :)

Action Research 2014

Alhamdulillah..managed to  get this action research completed in three days! The deadline for submission to PPD Kluang is today, 24th August 2014. The research was conducted with 5 As Syafie last year but it's only now that I managed to write the report. Perhaps the pressure from the principal was good as it pushed me to complete this report albeit sleepless nights for three days! Been using journals for so long but have never done a research into its effectiveness. Well, let's hope the panel thinks this is worth selecting.
