I joined the course with teachers from Jasin because I missed the Melaka Tengah course last week. The 3 - day course is held to expose the teachers of how to do School Based Assessment for English form 1. We also built sample intruments for band 1-6.
1. Band 1 : Know fundamental skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
2. Band 2 : Understand meanings of word, phrase and sentence level
3. Band 3 : Use knowledge acquired through listening, speaking, reading and writing

appropriate language conventions

largely appropriate language conventions
6. Band 6 :Appreciate bliterary works and present ideas critically in an exemplary

Although the course was tiring but I enjoyed meeting new friends from schools in Jasin. 2 days later, I also had the chance to visit JPN booth and looked at SMK Seri Bendahara's PBS files during Karnival Pendidikan Melaka 2012.

Fully Residential Schools International Symposium 2012: FRSIS 2012

MOZAC hosted Fully Residential School International Symposium (FRSIS 2012) on 26 - 31 March 2012. The theme chosen is Global Culture Generates Global Unity. All 63 fully residential schools took part in this symposium along with 19 schools from abroad. The students presented papers on the theme, participated in workshops and sharing sessions and came up with 9 resolutions for FRSIS 2012. We are priviledged to listen to Tun Mahathir Muhammad's view on the theme. Dato' Zuraidah Atan also shared her view when she spoke on Cultural Diversity Promotes Mutual Respect. Datuk Seri Ali Rustam, sponsored a dinner for all the delegates on 28th March 2012. The participants performed cultural shows from their countries during the state dinner and closing ceremony. The delegates also had the chance to visit Melaka during Melaka Heritage Tour. This is a good platform for students because the delegates also had the chance to know each other's culture and foster new friendship. The symposium has achieved its objective of generating unity by understanding others' culture. All in all, we had learnt a lot especially in organising a big event such as this at international level. It is a once in a life time experience for everyone of us at MOZAC. The 3rd FRSIS will be hosted by SSP next year.
