Last Friday on the eve of Merdeka Day on the 30th August 2013 was quite a busy day for me! From morning till night, I was all occupied with my professional responsibilities pertaining Eid celebration at my school, SK Serendah in the district of Hulu Selangor.
Year 6 boys recited the Quran during “Khatam Al-Quran”. Nabil Jefri, my ex-pupil from 5 Brilliant has all grown up! Nice voice of Quran recital. Time flies, isn’t it? Aliff (most front) – I taught him when he was in 4 Briiliant.
In the morning, the school organized the “Khatam Al-Quran” event which was a curtain-down or the finale for the collective Quran recital that was carried out throughout the month of Ramadhan. It was a nice segment to begin the Eid celebration as the selected pupils from 6 Active, 6 Brilliant & 6 Creative recited the last Juzuk (chapter) from the Quran on the stage. It was a therapeutic moment.
The assorted food from 5 Dynamic! Yummy!
Spaghetti by Darwisy!
Pakistani Briyani by Qulsum Bibi (she is a pure-bred Pakistani girl, by the way!)
A chocolate cake! Yummy! By Asikin.
Picture with the Year 4 boys.
Next, each class teachers went to respective classes and began to set up the “open class” preparation. Among all the 21 classes in the morning sessions (from Year 4- Year 6); I am the only male teacher as the class teacher! Oh, well, I don’t mind but to prepare these kinds of shenanigans; throw parties or “open class” could be quite hassle for me. Still, I love my job. I guess perhaps I can be considered as a caring and nurturing person (I am not boasting; I realize my nature) – that is why I am always a class teacher since for the past 3 years.
Chaotic madness in my class, 5 Dynamic!
Anyway, I have made promise to the 5 Dynamic kids that I will be giving them TREATS; so I am a man of my words. If last year for 5 Brilliant; I treated them with “Nasi Ayam”; this year I treated 5 Dynamic with “Nasi Tomato” & also Cornetto ice-creams. Yes, these treats do cost some amounts; tantamount to RM150 but I guess giving something back to bring smiles to the kids and sharing some of my fortune that ALLAH SWT gives will not lessen anything; in fact I always believe that ALLAH SWT will pay me back all the deeds in more rewarding blesses! Been there, seen that! (,”). With assorted delicacy of foods that my pupils brought and drinks that I bought – with some “Raya” music, it was a success – although there were messes around and kids from other classes thronged my class because they were infatuated with the “smokey-ices” from the ice cream box! Hahhahaa!
Aliens from Year 6! Hahaha! Time flies, the boys all grown up and soon will enter adolescent. Firdauz, Haikal, Hakim and also a Year 4, Adam.
Rahman took the opportunity to secure & bottled up every last bits of Twister Orange drops……
I was about to distribute the Cornetto ice creams treat for the 5 Dynamic kids. (,”)
On whole, it was nice; although I felt tired a bit as I had to constantly be with my 5 Dynamic (can’t leave them alone; can’t manage themselves yet and need constant vigilance of disciplining!), but I felt great that I can put smiles on their faces.
Children thronged to enter the game segment conducted by Kak Syarifah.
Kak Airin’s daughter, Iecha braved herself to sing national anthem – “Negaraku!” Salute!
At night, the school threw another Eid celebration for the school staffs, teachers and families called “Riang Ria Aidilfitri”. Two big tents were erected and the stone-stage at the assembly field were decorated with lanterns and lamps. It seemed very festive! And of course, Yours Truly was entrusted again as the MC together with Kak Airin. I helped Kak Airin to draft the script and although we barely had time to rehearse, but our chemistry just spontaneously gelled on stage, transpired from our same brain wavelengths! Hahaha! With few planned gimmicks and games, the event was a smooth-flowing occasion albeit there were a few here and there hiccoughs. Nevertheless, all ended well, Alhamdulillah!
Coincidentally, we wore same colour codes! Kak Yan, GPK 1 and I! Hahahaha! I as the MC for that night; gearing up to thunder the stage with my contact lenses making a fuss! Grrr… (,”)
The hampers. Can you see the highest one? Well, I sponsored that. Courtesy of Mydin Rawang’s RM150 (,”)
Our Head of Parents-Teachers Association Society (YDP PIBG) gave speech. I love the lantern/lamps feel on the stage.
One for the memory. Gwiyomi style? LOL!
And so happened that the Friday coincided with my personal “Raya” (Eid) after I have completed the 6-Days-Fasting (Sawm)-in-Syawal. A great jubilation feeling y’all! (,”)
My 5 Dynamic 2013 & I. Nice Eid Celebration, kids! (,”)
