Std Six Pupil Falls From 3rd Floor, Had Refused To Go School After Argument With Classmates


KLANG – A Standard Six girl suffered a fracture in her neck and injuries to her head, after falling off from a corridor on the third floor of her government school building.

The girl was found sprawled on the ground floor at 7.15 a.m. yesterday, and was quickly brought to hospital.

According to South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Alzafny Ahmad, despite her injuries, she is currently conscious and in stable condition, Berita Harian reports.

That morning, the girl was in her classroom when she was told by a prefect to go downstairs to attend the morning assembly. Minutes later, she was found lying on the ground floor.

“We found a chair at the corridor near the girl’s classroom.

“We believe she climbed on the chair and jumped,” said ACP Alzafny, while adding that the police have ruled out any criminal element in the case.

He said the pupil was now in a stable condition despite suffering from internal bleeding in the head, which is believed to have been due to neck fracture.

“The girl’s father has told that she refused to go to school today as she does not have mutual understanding with her peers,” said Alzafny in Klang today.

Student punches teacher in the face after being questioned over class fight

KULIM: Police have obtained a three-day remand order on a Form Four student for allegedly punching a teacher when questioned over a classroom fight yesterday.

Kulim police chief Superintendent Abdullah Arshad said the student, 16, was picked up after the 50-year-old male teacher lodged a police report at 11am yesterday.

Abdullah said the incident occurred in the teacher’s room when the teacher was questioning the student and his two classmates over the 9.30am incident.
He said the student and his two classmates were later summoned to the teacher’s room for questioning.

“During questioning, the student lost his temper and punched the teacher in the face,” he said.


Blamed for poor English and poor everything else, our schools are now seen as the birthplace of racism…

In Malaysia, institutionalised racism is used as a tool to modify behaviour, and instill a culture of fear and loathing in our schools, universities, the civil service, and public institutions. The indoctrination of the National Civics Bureau (BTN) helps to create a certain mindset in Malaysians.

Racism begins at school

Mariam Mokhtar     Published 11 Apr 2016, 9:47 am     Updated Today 6:00 am     11 comments

For some children, racism would involve name-calling, making fun of how others speak, and criticisms about one’s parents and their occupations.

Paul, not his real name, studied at a Mission school, and believes that his anglicised name helped him escape the worst racist taunts. He saw the effect of racism on his Indian and Chinese friends, especially in the less academic classes, where fights were common. At a low point in his life, Paul said, “I wish I were Malay.”

The following is Paul’s story about his school days.

“I weep every time I see Yasmin Ahmad’s ‘Merdeka’ adverts. I wish I could return to my kindergarten and primary school days. We got on fine with one another. We had fun…

After primary school, most of Paul’s Malay friends left for secondary schooling in boarding schools.

He said, “At secondary school, the collective racial stereotyping started. I had to make difficult social decisions, whether to make multiracial friends, or choose from my own race. When I reached puberty, ‘they’ tagged me ‘a smelly Indian’. So, I kept away from the Indians.

“I came across many racist Malay teachers. They spoke in a softer tone to the Malays, and it was made clear that we were not privileged. There was a backlash of racial vitriol because Malays were seen to be lazy, and opportunities were handed to them on a silver platter.

“The difference between the non-Malays and Malays/Muslim intensified, before the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM). Teachers forced us to memorise the Moral paper. Even straight ‘A’ students were stressed-out.

Age of indoctrination

Paul believes that the age of indoctrination occurs between the ages of 17 and 19. For his Form Six, Paul enrolled in a national school which offered his course options, and this is where he encountered full-blown racism.

“It was a national school, with a Malay majority. Islam was shoved in your face. I was firmly put in my place in my first day at school.

“I felt isolated. After 11 years of English education in a Mission school, my Malay was rusty. I wasn’t Muslim and could not sit with the Malays. There was no warmth at all.

“The Chinese students spoke Mandarin and used the word ‘Keling’ freely in their conversation. They built walls in boy-girl relationships, hinting that Indian guys were a threat to Chinese girls.

“The Indians were equally community minded and conversed in Tamil. They mostly talked about movies and culture. It was a circus!

“I could only get on with the ‘coconuts’, the Indians who were ‘brown’ on the outside, but ‘white’ on the inside.”

Paul’s teachers targeted Indian students…

Report: Almost half of Malaysian science teachers don’t have degrees

Report: Almost half of Malaysian science teachers don’t have degrees

Embedded image permalink

PUTRAJAYA — Almost half, or 41 per cent, of science teachers in Malaysia do not have a Bachelor’s degree, according to a report by national think tank Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM).

The report titled “Science Outlook 2015: Action towards Vision” released today by the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (Mosti) agency also showed that 70 per cent of teachers in general who hold a Bachelor of Education fall short of the requirement to have at least three distinctions in SPM to enter the degree programme.

“Questions have also been raised as to the qualification of our science teachers, and if they are sufficiently equipped with the required knowledge and orientation for effective subject delivery,” said the report that the ASM released to a press briefing here.

“Approximately 41 per cent of science teachers in the country do not possess a Bachelor’s degree, with 37.1 per cent holding only SPM/ STPM qualifications and 3.8 per cent holding diplomas,” it added.

Malay Mail Online reported last month that less than 13 per cent of those who sat for the Form 3 PT3 examination last year scored at least a C in both science and mathematics, according to the Education Ministry, despite Malaysia’s aim to achieve developed nation status in less than five years.


40 girls @ M’sia religious school stripped & caned – after someone stole $37 from a student


The 40 students were caned and made to strip as punishment.

Their ‘crime’?

Someone had stolen RM100 (S$37) from a fellow student at the religious school in Selangor and no one would admit to the deed, Sinar Harian reported.

Malaysian newspaper The Star said each girl received three strokes of the cane, twice behind their body and another on the palm of their hands at their dormitory last Wednesday (March 25).

A parent alleged that her 13-year-old daughter was forced to admit taking the money because she could not bear seeing her classmates being made to squat from 1am to 4am.

The mother said after lodging a police report against the school on Friday:

“If no one took responsibility for the theft, the punishment could have continued until the morning assembly.”

But on Monday, the school administration reportedly asked her to withdraw the report if she wanted to resolve the issue.

Gombak police chief Asst Comm Ali Ahmad said the school management would be hauled up in the investigations.

Penang parents angry son ‘treated like criminal’

BUKIT MERTAJAM, March 17 — The parents of a Year One pupil from a national primary school here are aggrieved over the way the headmaster disciplined their son.
They claimed the headmaster dragged their son to the front of a morning assembly — with the child’s pants coming off in the process — and beat him on his buttocks and back. “We do not understand the attitude of the headmaster, why drag my son and beat him?” said mother S. Jellinah Swari, during a press conference at the Prai assemblyman, P. Ramasamy’s, service centre at Taman Chai Leng yesterday.
She said the incident happened on March 5 at about 7.30am when the teachers and pupils gathered for morning assembly. … “I felt the headmaster had treated my son like a criminal and what was the mistake he committed to punish him that way.”
Jellinah said she went to the school to enquire on the incident. “While walking to the headmaster’s office, a lady teacher in charge of student affairs shouted at me and called me stupid for not transferring my son to a special school.”/
She said the headmaster was in his room, but he did not come out to check what was happening outside. Jellinah said the teacher had been telling her to transfer her son to a special school, but she refused. She then took her son to consult a paediatric specialist, who said that her son was normal and needed no specialised tuition.


Pupil ‘stripped’ by headmaster..

SEBERANG PERAI: A mother of a pair of twins is refusing to send her children to school after one of them was allegedly dragged by the headmaster until his pants came off while being beaten.

S. Jellinah Swari 35, said she came to know about what happened on March 10 when a mother of one of her son’s classmate told her what allegedly happened at SK Stowell Bukit Mertajam. She said she was told the headmaster had allegedly dragged her seven-year-old son until his pants came off and used his hands to beat him.

“I asked the class teacher and she admitted to the incident,” she claimed in a press conference held today at the service centre of Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy here. Present was Ramasamy’s assistant, M. Satees.

The housewife said she confronted the senior assistant over the matter but claimed she was scolded and called names, including “You perempuan bodoh” (You’re a stupid woman). “The headmaster only came out to meet me after 10 minutes of being yelled at when I told them I was going to tell the media about what happened,” she said.

Jellinah said the headmaster had then admitted to beating her son and said she was told that he was angry over other matters.

Many against move to do away with uniforms

PETALING JAYA: The Education Ministry’s announcement that Form Six students would not have to wear school uniforms beginning next term has not been welcomed by most of the public. In a poll by The Star Online, while some welcomed the move, many others believed that it would not have any relevant impact on the overall standard of education. Facebook user Stephanie Ha said that the move was not a good idea as students, especially girls, will waste their time thinking of what to wear. “This will also lead to a sense of loss of identity and sense of belonging to their school,” she said. Another user, Cecilia Thomas, questioned how the move would help with the students’ education. “There will be extra expenses for families because students would want to impress their friends,” she added. Grace Williams said the move would create a divide between the rich and poor students. http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/12/23/Many-against-move-to-do-away-with-uniforms/ — It was WRONGLY reported by the NST that in the 1.30pm incident, the victim was believed to have been thrown off the second floor of the school building by a Special Education Integration Program (PPKI) student. The 12 year-old and 6 year-old were playing, and the younger boy, placed on the corridor wall by the older boy, fell off.

Hyperactive autism boy’s “playful act” led to fall of six year old from school block

SEREMBAN: A hyperactive autistic student playful act is believed to be the cause of a six-year-old Adam Zikri Faizul Khairy to fall from the second floor of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Tasik Jaya here on Wednesday. Earlier before the 1:30pm incident, the 12-year-old Special Education Integration Program (PPKI) student at the school was seen lifting the victim and sat him on the corridor wall before Adam fell. That led to the earlier assumption by people who were in the area that the kid was thrown off the building by the autistic boy. Seremban police chief Assistant Commissioner Muhamad Zaki Harun said the autism boy had tried to grab the victim’s hand when he lost his balance but failed. “Preliminary investigation revealed that the autistic boy have no intention to throw off the kid but only wanted to play before the incident took place. “Earlier before he met the victim he was seen hugging and trying to lift an 11-year-old student but did not succeed,” he said at a press conference at the Seremban district police headquarters here today. http://www.nst.com.my/node/52634The Special Education Integrated Programme (PPKI) exists side by side with mainstream students in selected schools.

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Education Department is caught in a dilemma as it tries to settle the case of a Year One schoolboy who was allegedly slapped on the cheek by his teacher. The department is keen to make peace between the teacher and the boy’s parents but both sides are unwilling to budge from their positions and are even threatening to sue each other.

The boy’s mother, Norhafizah Abu Bakar, lodged a police report saying the seven-year-old boy was slapped so hard that finger marks were imprinted on his right cheek. The teacher lodged her own report, denying the allegation and accusing the parents of defaming her by uploading on Facebook a photograph of the boy with finger marks on his cheek. … Osman said the parents at one point did show signs of cooling down but the teacher now appeared more determined than ever to resolve the issue in court.

Rela to station members at 417 schools nationwide

The People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) will place its members at 417 high-risk schools which have been involved in accidents and kidnappings throughout the country. It director-general Mustafa Ibrahim said Rela was ready to place more members in all schools if the response was encouraging and there were requests from the schools. He said the presence of the Rela members would help reduce incidences of crime involving students, especially in big cities. “The number of accidents and kidnappings involving students in big cities is high, so the presence of Rela members in the schools would help monitor them. “Before this, we had placed members in schools to help oversee security when they are in the schools but we had to stop last November due to lack of funds,” he told reporters after launching the Polytechnic Relasis Brigade at the Terengganu level in Dungun today. He said beginning June 15, Rela would activate its members and place them in schools which needed their service. … He said Rela members would also be sent to petrol stations in border states such as Perak, Perlis and Kelantan. This would help the authorities curb such activities as diesel smuggling. He added that Rela members would also be stationed at 12 Immigration depots throughout the country for security control, guard government building and power stations, to avoid cable theft. – Bernama http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/266434 —– BOYS WILL BE BOYS! 1 They can be vicious when angered. 2 They can be too playful for their own good. 3 They can be disobedient and end up in serious trouble. … Star

FOOD IN THE SCHOOL CANTEEN THEY SELL WHAT OUR CHILDREN LOVE TO EAT! Can you blame the canteen stall-holders? Would you expect them to sell what our children don’t want? The school canteen at any school in Malaysia, whether primary or secondary, sells french fries, burgers, sausages, hotdogs, nuggets and fried crackers which are certainly not food of high nutritional value for children. There will be economy rice with all types of meat and vegetable but friend chicken will be the best seller. Nasi lemak? Chee cheong fun? Fried noodles? Sure. These sell. There will be chocolate and all sorts of sweets or candy. There will be flavoured drinks with coloring, or fizzy drinks (Coca Cola, 7-Up, etc). Here is a dietitian who grumbles about unhealthy food in school canteens. If you agree with her, why are you spending so much money on your children (and yourself) for meals at KFC, McDonald’s and the like? A further point. Prices are not decided by canteen operators but are controlled by the school (Board of Governors or Directors). These prices are comparatively lower than outside. What could we expect at the school canteen? Low prices and high quality food that students don’t want? Or low prices for food that is filling? A student may say, “I would prefer to eat something healthier like yogurt but I have to make do with whatever is provided.”That is a rare person or just telling you what she thinks you want to hear. … YAHOO!

Dietician says food sold in schools lack nutrition

AA KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 17 — Most food served in school canteens were high in fat and sugar content, contributing to a  high calorie consumption among students. Dietician Erica Mak said children were forced to consume such food due to a lack of healthier choices, resulting in poor eating habits which contributed to the rise of obesity among children. “As the food served much in fat and sugar, it made up a large portion of a child’s caloric consumption. Unhealthy diet habits cultivated from a young age may increase risk for non-communicable diseases later in life,” Mak said. “Hence, the right proportion of macronutrients and micronutrients were essential for optimal growth and school performance.” Mak was asked to comment over checks made by The Malay Mail at several primary and secondary schools in the Klang Valley. It was found the schools served food which contained minimal nutritional value and many schools did not adhere to guidelines set by the Education Ministry (see accompanying story). http://my.news.yahoo.com/dietician-says-food-sold-schools-lack-nutrition-231900670.html

Our team observed a small plate of nasi lemak, generally priced at RM1, was served with a quarter piece of an egg, some peanuts and anchovies. There were no cucumber or any other vegetables.

Two brothers force Year One girl to perform oral sex

MALACCA: Two brothers, one in Year Four and the other in Year Two, allegedly forced a Year One girl to perform oral sex on them after the duo browsed an adult movie site on their school computer. The brothers apparently had watched a movie at the school’s computer lab and later invited the girl to their house in Tanjung Minyak Utama here to re-enact what they had seen. The girl’s 25-year-old mother lodged a police report on Monday after her daughter told her about the incident. In her report, the mother claimed the brothers had “romanced” her daughter by inviting her on the pretext of helping her with homework. Sources told The Star that the boys had accessed adult sites that were not filtered by the blocking software. Malacca Action Group for Parents (Magpie) chairman Mak Chee Kin said the state education department should probe the shocking case as it involved primary school pupils. “The department should investigate whether children at school are watching pornography,” he said, adding that schools should also install web-filtering software to block minors from visiting inappro­priate sites.
