Date: 20 April 2017 (Thursday)
Time: 2.30 - 4.30 p.m.
Venue: Meeting Room 1
Speaker: Pn Sallina Hussain, Ketua Sektor Pengurusan Akademik, JPNJ
Topic: Guru Berkualiti + PdP Berkualiti = Kemenjadian Murid dalam PAK 21

Thanks Sal for making time for all of us in SASEM despite your busy schedule. And what a shame I had to miss your session because I had to be in SEHEBAT for Nadi Kasih Programme on the same day. And the feedback is good Sal. I randomly asked teachers around and they were all in awe of your sharing. The principal texted me while I was in SEHEBAT- "Tahniah...PLC banyak input". And during LET session, Radhi, our Head of Panel too reminded us of the pointers from your talk. Thanks a zillion. We need that ummphh and you gave us that and more.

But poor me had to miss that and read your slides instead!!! huhuhu....

Next on the list is.....surprise surprise :)

Choral Speaking is alive and well!!!

It was refreshing to watch the eight teams pit against each other in the recently concluded Kluang District 2017 Choral Speaking Competition. SM Sains Sembrong secured second place overall and the Best Conductor Award- congrats to Nash, Azhar and Azie for training them. They did well and I knew they would get a placing.  I oversaw the briefing for adjudicators and dabbled as the MC for the closing ceremony haha...what's the Malay proverb...tiada rotan akar pun berguna? Suddenly, in the midst of the closing ceremony the VIP arrived and Radhi was cutely signalling me to notice him and luckily I did. Thank you to Mr. Nasarudin Ahmad (PPD Kluang Co- Academic Officer) for making it despite having to be in three different events on the same day.

Thanks to all adjudicators, Madam Sarojini who was chief adjudicator (SMK Canossian Convent), Madam Rukumani (SMK Seri Kota Paloh), Mdm Nurul Fiza (SMK Taman Sri Kluang), Mr. Nafis (SMK SEDARA) and Ms Sheimah Nallasamy (SMK Kahang)

Congrats to all in the English Panel for making this a success! Tiring but fulfilling day :)
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.

Nadi Kasih Programme SBP Southern Zone in Sehebat

Date: 20-22 April 2017
Venue: SEHEBAT, Batu Pahat
No. of participants : 240

Assalamualaikum and hi all! It's been a while I know. April has been a really busy month...I felt swamped! But I said to myself I must post this before it becomes ancient  news. I sure missed training a lot! It felt good to conduct a training session again for 240 students in all. Hopefully, my session was okay and so were the rest of the other sessions. We focussed more on Paper 2 considering it can help the weaker candidates to do better in this paper. Slip disc or not, the show must go on.

My thanks to Sehebat, particularly Loh Pei Wern (Head of English Panel) for being so accommodating and receptive to the trainers' needs, Suzi (Suziana Muhammad) for conducting the ice-breaker, trainers, Reeza from Sekolah Tun Fatimah, Hida from SM Sains Muar and Rozman, from SM Sains Johor, facilitators from SBP Southern Zone schools, 80 Young Tutors and participants. You were awesome! 

I felt rejuvenated somewhat from this event. I still have it in me to train methinks...Managed to visit old friend Zubaidah in Sehebat too and my prayers are with you. Speedy recovery o.k!
