Item Building @ TKC 2

As planned, we met again at TKC on July 9th to discuss and select the questions. This time, I drove to SEMESRA to fetch Hilma. After 10 hours, we managed to complete the questions. Building items for an exam is a very daunting task and I am thankful to have given the opportunity to get involved in this process again. All in all, it was a fruitful meeting...another mission accomplished!

SAMURA International Cultural, Sports and Educational Festival 2012

On July 7, 2012, I drove to SMS Muar (SAMURA) to judge an Internatinal Public Speaking Competition. The 2nd SICSEF is a festival where students from Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Hong Kong share experiences and learn each other cultures. Some workshops and competitions were held such as public speaking, nasyid, tilawah Al Quran, chess, cultural exchange and zapin. It was indeed a good experience to see youth come together to share their views on environment. Thank you to friends from SAMURA for giving me the opportunity to get involved in this festival and for treating mee the delicious Mee Bandung Muar.


This semester, MOZAC planned 3 immersions with 3 different schools for PMR students. The second immersion this year involved students from MOZAC and SMS Selangor. This time, we had to travel to SMS Selangor on 29 June - 1st July. Kak Haidah was kind enough to accompany me driving to Majid Tanah at wee hour before Rizal drove us to Cheras. Razlin and the gang started the students with a writing workshop. After that, it was my turn to conduct a literature workshop with the students on How I Met Myself. Meanwhile the form 5 teachers had the same programme at Sek. Men. Sains Alam Shah (ASiS). The next Tuesday on the 3rd of July, we hosted SMS Johor for the third immersion this year. Rizal and I conducted the 4 hour workshop with the students. This time we focus on Sp
eech and Text Completion. Two SMSJ teachers helped to facilitate. Next week, we will be going to SBPI Gombak for the fourth immersion. This time we plan to do poem revision with the students. Meanwhile, the form 5 will play host to students from ASiS. Hopefully, the students gained something from this programme especially from their friend in the 3 SBPs

Item Building @ TKC

This year , despite the busy schedule at school, I managed to contribute something to SBP. With friends from Negeri Sembilan, I'm honoured to work with a bunch of enthuasistic teachers. The work is made easy by everyone's committment and high spirits. Despite many years of experience building items, there's still a lot to learn. We also managed to work on a project together, Hopefully, we will be able to come up with a way to help our students in writing. Wish us luck!
