Extended enrolment

SM Poi Lam welcome all despite overhwelming number of students

From page 1 PARENTS of children born in the year of the dragon in 2000 heaved a sigh of relief when SM Poi Lam in Ipoh welcomed the overwhelming number of Form One students with open arms yesterday.

The Chinese independent school made it a point not to turn away any student even when its enrolment for Form One swelled by the day.

Principal Leong Ping Chow said the school’s board of governors had initially set the enrolment limit at 400 but later extended it to 500.

“As of the first day of school, we have a total of 522 students in Junior One and Remove Class,” he told The Star.

Leong explained that the school had decided not to turn away anyone after taking into consideration the support for the school by parents.

“Besides, we have sufficient classrooms to accommodate them,” he said, adding that with the new intake, the school now had a total of 1,630 students.

He added that the school was popular due to it adopting the Cambridge syllabus.

One parent, Tan Swee Kheng, 39, said she was initially worried about not being able to get her son Wong Wing Han, a place at another school.

“We enrolled Wing Han at Poi Lam at the suggestion of a friend and did so only at the last minute on Dec 28.

“We are so relieved that he has been accepted into the school and are extremely satisfied with the syllabus adopted by it and the learning environment it provides.

“Hopefully, it will help our son possess a strong command of English as well,” she added.

Housewife Felicia Ho said she had enrolled her son Yeong Kah Ho, in Poi Lam early last November, knowing that everyone would be clamouring for a place in Form One at most schools.

Kah Ho, she said, was the youngest of her three children and the only one to study at a private school.

“We decided to send him to Poi Lam as we believe the Cambridge syllabus can better prepare him for the future,” she said.

(霹靂‧怡保1日訊)培南獨中在該校禮堂舉行“2013年度新生入學編班考試”,出席參加首批入學試的小六生人數反應熱烈,共多達400名。

入學考當天吸引了許多家長到訪,他們趁著陪孩子參加考試,也抓住時機與該校教務處及行政老師,分別以華語和英文瞭解和交流。

該校也準備了內容豐富,並介紹校內各种軟硬体設備的短片讓家長觀賞,讓家長更瞭解培南獨中的辦學理念、方針、學制、各种軟硬体設備及學習環境。

梁炳初:51小學學生參與

該校校長梁炳初表示,共有51所小學的數百名考生,參加這次的新學年新生編班考試。

他們大部份來自於怡保市區及市郊,也有一些是來自州內其他地區及其他州屬,如金馬侖、話望生、大港、半港、雪蘭莪、吉蘭丹、吉隆坡等。新生入學考試主要是考4個科目,即華文、英文、國文、數學。

他表示,從參加入學試學生人數及出席升學說明會的家長熱烈反應看來,可證明家長對培南獨中辦學方針及多元化課程的贊同,而該校走多元化教育路線是正确的。

13日進行第二次入學試

有多所小學因參加畢業旅行及補課而無法出席該校第一次新生入學試的小六生,該校已安排10月13日(星期六)進行第二次入學試,歡迎還沒參加入學試的小六生,於這日期到該校參加入學試。

被錄取的學生接到校方的通知函後,可即刻到該校教務處辦理入學注冊手續,以免向隅。該校辦公時間:星期一至五上午8時至下午4時;星期六上午8時至下午1時。

學校假期辦公時間是星期一至上午9時至4時,星期六是上午9時至1時。星期日或公共假期沒有辦公。

首批“2013年入學試成績”將於10月4日(星期四)出爐,考生成績將刊登在各大報章、校方也會發短訊給已留下手機號碼的家長,而沒留下手機號碼的家長則將成績郵寄給考生、或考生可通過瀏覽培南獨中网站http://poilam.edu.my查詢成績。

由於該校參加入學考試的同學反應熱烈,但學額有限,特此吁請欲辦理注冊手續者從速,至額滿為 止。被編至劍橋班的學生須預交第一個月份的學雜費(308令吉)及注冊費80令吉,共388令吉;而統考班則預交第一個月份學雜費(160令吉)及注冊費 80令吉,共240令吉。(星洲日報/大霹靂)

Education comes first

Dr Ting: Independent schools play vital role in nation-building

From page 1 AGOOD education has always been a way forward for an individual, and this in turn benefits the community and nation.

Asset to the community: SM Poi Lam in Ipoh is one of the independent schools in Perak which benefited from the oil palm joint-venture project.“The Chinese saying zai qiong ye bu nen qiong jiao yu, zai ku ye bu nen ku hai jer (no matter how poor we are, we must not be poor in education, no matter how hard life can be, we cannot let our children suffer) perhaps summed up the importance of education in the community,” said MCA Huaren Education Foundation chairman Tan Sri Dr Ting Chew Peh in an interview recently.

He said MCA had never stopped in its efforts to take care of education for the community since its inception in 1949.

As the party’s former secretarygeneral and education bureau chief for almost 15 years, he said helping the Chinese independent schools had always been one of its top priorities because these schools depended on public donations to survive.

He pointed out that the independent schools had been playing an important role in manpower training and nation building since their inception.

“The students from independent schools are also very competent in the Chinese language which is a much sought after asset nowadays,” he noted.
Education comes first

A successful venture

2012 PARENTS’ DAY which is really REPORT CARD DAY!

Do you remember the yearly ritual? Waiting, usually in the hall, for your parent to arrive, to get your report card? The anxious moments spent thinking what the teacher would say to your mum?

If you were lucky, your elder sister came as Mum wasn’t free. That meant that you didn’t get scolded all the way in the car..

But if you were unlucky, your father came!

Today, 22 June 2012, Poi Lam held its Parents’ Day

It is not long past 9am and the field is filling up with the cars of parents…

The hall is also filling up with teachers, students and parents…

Some classes are up on the stage…

 Most classes are scattered all over.

By 12.59pm, the place is almost empty.

At 1pm, only three teachers are still at work. School is over but the teacher on the right will be the last to leave….


I made a student cry today. The form teacher asked me to tell the student’s mother about the student’s performance in English. When I explained that she had given up learning English long ago, that she had decided that she would fail anyway, the student began crying softly. The mother, the form teacher and a classmate were anxious to comfort her but I merely said, “You know that I have told you the truth. Have a good cry, and if those tears are sincere, you will find yourself willing to give learning English a try.”

It is true that your attitude towards anything will have a big say in how much you learn. As soon as I decided that I would not let age be an excuse for avoiding the computer, my learning began.

It took me two lessons to learn about the computer and get onto the Internet, and I have never looked back.

I was on Facebook not long after it appeared. I learnt from a student.

In one school, I was the first to upload videos onto Youtube. All I did was ask one of my sons by SMS, and he sent me the instructions.

At another school, I introduced Facebook to my colleagues.

Don’t let your attitude get in the way of your learning, no matter how young or old you are!
