Kuala Selangor SJKT UPSR Excellence Seminar

June 29th, 2008

As mentioned few days ago, UMIC was involved in a small way in the organising of the above program. The program is being organised by SJKT Ladang Sungai Buloh and Majlis Guru – Guru Besar Daerah Kuala Selangor & Sabak Bernam.




The program started at 8.30am, but I arrived only at 9.15am. The first session (answering English paper was being handled by Mrs Raj from SJKT Methodist Kapar).



There were about 105 students who registered while about 10-15 have not done so at that time. Estimated 130 students came from 22 schools. Those from Sabak Bernam (2 schools were not able to make it due to transport and lack of teachers).



The next session was from 9.30am to 10.30am followed by opening ceremony and VIP speech till about 12pm. The VIPs were OMS Group of Companies’ director P.Thiagarajan (sponsor), Selangor State Education Department’s Tamil Schools Coordinator Mr Vallikannu, and UMIC’s representative Mr Gopal.



The student took lunch at 12.45pm, and the session continued at 1.30pm until 5.00pm. Five speakers were invited to provide tips and guidance for the students (most of those who attended were 7As candidates), each covering one subject.



Compared to last year, this time the students had a table to write on and the hall was air-conditioned. It was a program with least discomfort in my opinion. 🙂



Beside sponsoring lunch and token fee for the speakers, UMIC also provides a small token for the most participative student, to be selected by the organizers.



The program went well, but unfortunately I had to leave at 12.30pm due to other engagements. My only grouse is that there were so many speeches (I counted 6!). Even Gopal was “forced” to give one 🙂 Will suggest to reduce this in the coming event.



Since there were many calls to organise a similar program for the average students, the organizers plan to hold a workshop in July. More updates will posted once available.

Karpal under attack

Got to give it to the guy. He coolly gave his statement on TV that his prior statements are within the law and in the interest of the public. No way the AG can form a case of treason or sedition, he claims. But he better be aware that in Bolehland anything can happen. The whole country can believe in something, but the decision or action taken by those responsible will be totally opposite. I think its time Karpal make preparations to get out of the country for a short while 🙂

Meanwhile, three police reports were made earlier in the day. One by BN Backbenchers Club, one by a Malay NGO coalition, and the third By Tengku Adnan (UMNO Sec-Gen) after being ordered by PM. The accusers are confident that they have a case against Karpal. PM even said that AG will be making a case soon (shown on TV3 Nightline). Wonder how he decided that when the police have not even started the investigation. » Read more: Karpal under attack

After about 3 weeks of preparing for Back to School 2008, the organisers descended on SJKT Bukit Darah and SJKT Ladang Sungai Buloh, Bukit Rotan for the handing over of bags and uniform to the students. The trip to Bukit Darah was on 6th January while Bukit Rotan trip took place on 1oth January.

The project expanded from 76 students to 92 students including the kids from the single parent families that UMIC is helping.

Photos from the trip to the two schools are available at the moment, while photos from the visit to SJKT Ladang Bradwall, Siliau, Seremban haven’t reached me yet.

More details of the project is at the website.
