This captured the moment between 2008 and 2012. Does it picture you a view? The feeling of being a teacher – priceless.
in 2010, i managed to escort the students (Year 6, 2010) to Klang. it is a huge school with wide field. we put the tents in the fields as the camp site. this time, we are full prepared even we know that finally we will partly divided. it was OK since we had expected it to happen and we had no worry about that.
the thing that i could not forget was the skill and knowledge of ours. we exploded with high credibility of skills. most of my students managed to be at the front line. Firdaus Idris Safawi had been appointed as the Penghulu. what a great surprise! Syed Abdurrahim, Zarief Azhar, Wan Mohd Afdhaaluddin, Mohd Afif, Arif Aiman, Munif, Mohd Nur Syafi, Saiful Imaan, Amir Aizat, Faiz Jamil and Firdaus Ab Malek had stepped forward to lead their respective group members. this is due to the fact that most of the candidates (from other schools) are still too young and too green. a few of them had no skills at all.they had to learn from my kids. therefore, i felt blessed because we didnt just participate but we contribute for the benefit of others.
i had no words to describe that feeling since i treated my kids with a special training and then i had my special return which had blown me away. Congrats!
the girls also had shown their skills tremendously. most of the time, i could see the kids bringing the task with pride and definitely joy. then, when my boys practised marching (kawad), everyone would stare and was preoccupied at that performance.
after much hard work, all the students had been emerged form Koperal TKRS to Sarjan TKRS. the conferment went smoothly as most of the students were excited for their effort to have been paid off. trust me, nothing pays to be good, just HARD WORK, PRAY and BELIEVE. to my kids, if you ever find yourself a way up here, i would like to express my appreciation towards your hard work, contribution and success. you are amazing! therefore, i conclude that you deserve for all those things.
during my teaching days, i had had a chance to bring my kids (Year 6, 2009) for the Pentauliahan Sarjan of Sekolah Rendah Islam Al-Amin Gombak (SRIAAG). in 2009, we had Kedah as the point for the conferment. we moved from Gombak to Kedah around 11pm. we reached kawasan Rehat dan Rawat (RnR) Gurun. later that morning, we arrived at Pendang Lake Resort around 7am. the lake is quite big and it is windy at all times.
we managed to be among the first groups to arrive there. we pitched the tent and arranged related things accordingly. i was always proud of my kids because i realize that i can expect more from them in return. this is the unique thing about kids. we instill and we nurture, then we will see them flourish in almost a perfect manner. if it doesnt, just believe in God’s plan since He knows much better what is the best for His creations.
although we had hard training before coming over, it seemed to be useless since the kids were divided into different groups which involved every participated schools. then, i saw my kids had to suck it up because in a group, it may consist best candidates, average candidates and low candidates in term of skills and knowledge. honestly, it affected my kids’ desire and determination since some of their friends had to learn from zero.
overall, i saw this as a platform for my students to build up their skills and accelerate their expanded potential since they may find themselves in a very exact situation in future. yes! who knows later, we will have to work with unpleasant people and somehow we have no way out except we our self change to adapt with the surroundings to achieve greater result.
after accomplished the training and conferment, we left for Gombak at 2pm and reached school around 11pm. it was indeed a wonderful journey.
