Graduation Day 2010

Today marks the Graduation Day 2010. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera, so many pictures that I can take with my miserable phone.

Started at 8:30 and ended before 12:00 noon.

Same ceremonial functions, just changed the students.

But it must be a memorial day for those involved.

New outlook for Staff Room

My new desk
Beginning next year, hoperully, we will be looking at a new outlook for the staff room, now that the administration office had been fully furnished.

New desk, new chair and every thing new ... most probably sponsored by all the ex students.. so wait for the donation forms ...

High School

View of BM High School

Attended the Colloquium for Teachers teaching Form 6 on Saturday 30 October 2010. I had never really been to High School even though it was our rival school in Rugby way back in the Eighties. Old school building but does not have any aura of its past - not like my alma mater.

D-Day Tomorrow

Remembering my quote
"My job is to fail you, Your job is to pass"

Fair - right?

So, its D-day for the Lower Six tomorrow. Good luck to all of you :)

Action Research Course in BTPN

Attended a course in Action Research Course in BTPN in Pokok Sena Kepala Batas. This course is conducted for all Form 6 teachers. Spent the whole days there. Boring, well, it got broad band connection so I can still play with my computer, yeah!

Never really into action research, lazy research for people who want to call themselves researchers..

Another Teacher Retires

For some "older" 6th Formers, Mr Chong Min Chin had taught them the subject of Further Maths. For some in the early 2000, Form 3 Science.
Today JitSin students bade him farewell, may he enjoy his retirement years free from the antics of Jitsin students in peace and happiness.

(note: we now use helicopter to send teachers off.... oops forget to tell the pilot where to put him down.. maybe in Afghanistan)

Not easy to get this information - as who can communicate with the houseflies

Sewing leaves

Interesting way to show your soft skills or sew your heart greenly.

Taekwondo Competition

Some members took part in the Penang Open Taekwondo Competition. Interesting to see some small kids bashing each other out.
I hope the F6 guys/gals got any medals.
Our coach Mr Pang acts as a jury and our secretary his assistant

Interesting quadrates invented by the students.

Kind person and I (the dog)

In conjuction with the Care the Environment, the sharing attitude is shown by Mr Lee and his dog


Soil analysis

Armed with hammers and tins (big and small), the lower sixers attack their sites hoping to dig up some valuable gemstones.

Silly TCK, only to find soil and sands.

AGM Kelab Taekwondo T6


Today marks the end of the Co-curricular activity for Upper 6 Taekwondo members and the beginning of the Lower 6ers with the selection of new set of AJKs.

The U6 AJK had done a good job in running this Kelab, thank you very much to the Chairman, VC, Sec and the rest of the Exco members.

I hope that the new AJK will carry on the good work and make this kelab a success.


Lab work

Going to burn the lab down - or her tie is going to go up in flame
Science is fun when there is lab work, but you will have to learn what you are doing.

Otherwise, it is nothing more than waste of time and money.

See last year post

Houseflies Cockroaches and Mosses

Lower Sixes torturing the cockroaches and houseflies?

Mosses or searching for gold?

Catching the houseflies - easy?

Different techniques and odd places - the dustbin - never think about that

And this is the horrible one - torturing the cockroaches
