Leaps of Knowledge, Oxford

On 25th July, I had an opportunity to attend the Leaps of Knowledge event ogranised by Frogasia. The event was held in Garden International School somewhere in Sri Hartamas if I am not mistaken.

Garden International School. The facilities are superb.

I went there with my colleague, Teacher Nethia and we car pooled to there. The event was actually the climax for the Summer School Programme involving around 500 high school students from all around the nation. They were taught about basic knowledge of academic field such as biochemistry, biology, engineering, law, physics, etc by a group of professors from St. Anne's College, University of Oxford. 

I was an exciting experience to be there and meet all the lecturers from the most established university in the world. Perhaps one day I will be one of the student walking in the majestic halls of Oxford colleges one day. Who knows?

Raya Celebration SKJalanU3 2015

Yesterday we had our Raya celebration at the school. Students and teachers wore  beautiful and colourful Baju Raya. We also brought varieties of delicious Raya delicacies like Raya cookies, lemang and rendang. 

During the event, I had volunteered to be in charge of PA system as there was nobody appointed for the duty. I started to set up the sound system until I realised that I had no Raya song in my lappy at all. It was a relieved when Ustaz Rafiq gave   me a list of Raya songs. 

Then, came my ad lib idea of setting up a Radio Raya Corner. I had appointed 3 students to be the DJs to read out the Raya wishes from the students. It was nice to see that the students and teachers enjoyed listening to the DJs.

At the end of the event, I had invited some students for some Raya performances. My class students, Haziq and Khusyairi were incredible in playing the percussion without any practice in prior. 

This was quite an experience that I had managed to help organized with the Year 5 teachers. For next Raya celebration, I will make sure that I plan the programme properly in prior.
