I am sure every teachers in this world agree with me : Teachers never asked to be given gifts or showered with lavish gifts by pupils. As long as pupils appreciate; even with a simple greeting or wish or even hand-made cards are all that matters. This year, I am celebrating my 1st year as a full-fledged teacher in SK Serendah and I have to tell, it was overall a very nice starting year for me!
Standard 5 teachers belting out modified version of “Cindai, Wassini & Bila Larut Malam”.
Lately, I have been threading a very very very hectic and busy social calendar; but I am loving every minutes of it. Fresh from the Putrajaya Ekiden Run on Sunday, I came back to Serendah to celebrate Teachers’ Day on 17th May 2010 (since on 16th May it was Sunday!). Although my body was still a little bit exhausted but the adrenaline was still pumping vigorously and motivated me to go through another heavy day.
Standard 1 & 2 (i) with Dikir Puteri
The day began with morning assembly with both session morning and evening all sardined together on the small school compound. After the VIPS speeches and all, all of the teachers sang out lungs out the Holy Song for teachers : “Kami Guru Malaysia.” I was a bit excited and full of enthusiasm since this is the first year and singing the song really fires me up, I have to say! After that, pupils were scurried to the hall for performances by teachers.
Standard 3 & Standard 2 (ii) led by Kak Rafidah.
Group Ustaz & Ustazah.
The teachers for standard 1 & Standard 2 (i) performed “Dikir Barat/ Dikir Puteri” which was certainly an energetic overture to the performance segment! The atmosphere was heated up with the fast movement and catchy number by Noraniza Idris. Standard 3 & Standard 2 (ii) teachers led by Kak Rafidah performed Pop Yeh Yeh with back-up dancers!! The pre-schoolers and PPKI teachers also performed their “Oh Suzana!” Pop Yeah Yeah performance which was very playful and cute!

Sporting Standard 6 teachers : Bevy of Beauties dancing & singing to “Feminin” and “Wonder Girls’ ‘I Want Nobody But You!”
Standard 4 teachers which was clearly the winner for the performance segment came out with a stage show rendered with Allahyarham Sudirman’s “Basikal Tua” song as the background music. Certainly the combination and creativity of the teachers produced victorious when the group was declared as winner! Standard 6 teachers are no quitter too: calling themselves “Bevy of Beauties” (all female teachers- Kak Wahida, Kak Lin, Kak Aireen & Kak Shida : my English panels sisters!! Hehe) performed a rather provocative and playful number of “Feminin” and “Wondergirls’ ‘Nobody But You’!!! The hall was so excited seeing teachers let their hair down! Bravo!!!! The last but not least was Standard 5 teachers (which was mine) singing 2 three traditional songs – ‘Cindai, Wassini & Bila Larut Malam’ with lyrics modified to suit Teachers’ day mood. Well, all I can say, my voice WAS the loudest! Hahahha!
The winner : Standard 4 teachers with Allahyarham Sudirman’s “Basikal Tua”. Sporting Ustaz!!
Next, we had Prize-Trading session and then proceeded to Language Game for teacher. The day ended with cake-cutting ceremony for teachers who are celebrating birthdays on April, May and June (including me!) and luncheon by Kak Long of Canteen.
Tokens of appreciation by SK Serendah pupils. Sir will try to do the best to give my all to nurture y’all!
Above all, I cherish this Day and getting gifts from pupils and hand-made cards are all enough for me. TQ. Sir loves you all and aspire/hopes to be the best teacher to my pupils in SK Serendah !(,”)
