Daily revisions pay off for Anis

Posted: 19 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

KLANG: After news spread that she was among the top students in the country to score a perfect CGPA (cumulative grade point average) of 4.0 in the STPM examinations, Anis Syarirah Saiful said she was over the moon and thanked her teachers and parents for her success.

The 20-year-old from Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah said there was no secret to success apart from daily revisions.

"I woke up at 4am, said my prayers, and studied every day," she said, adding that her teachers and parents also played an important role in her success.

Anis said her next plan was to pursue her long-time dream of studying Arabic language at Universiti Islam Antarabangsa.

Fellow top student, Naim Syukri Sidek, 20, who comes from the same college, also thanked God for his success.

"All I want to do now is to further my law studies at Universiti Malaya," he said.

Former principal of the college, Abdullah Jusoh, who retired just two months ago, said Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah had emerged as the top institution in the country for the sixth time in a row.

"Although I have retired, I am proud of what the college has achieved," he said, congratulating the students and teachers.

All 59 STPM students from the college passed, with 29 of them scoring a CGPA of 3.5 and above.

Friends died of drowning

IPOH: A student jumped into a river to rescue his drowning friend although he did not know how to swim. Both died.

The two college students were found dead after they went missing with two other students on Gunung Bubu in Kuala Kangsar on Sunday.

Post-mortems carried out on the remains of Adam Asyraf Azman and Muhammad Amir Aysraff Baharuddin, both 17, pointed to drowning as the cause of death, said acting Kuala Kangsar OCPD Supt Ahmad Rabawi Abdul Jamil.

"We believe that Adam Asyraf had slipped and fell into Sungai Gading before being swept away by the strong currents.

"It was then that Muhammad Amir Aysraff tried to help his friend and got into the water as well.

"However, Muhammad Amir Aysraff did not know how to swim and drowned as well," Supt Ahmad Rabawi said yesterday.

Their bodies were discovered by rescuers in the river at about 3.20pm on Tuesday.

Adam Aysraf and Muhammad Amir Aysraff were among four students who went missing while descending Gunung Bubu with six teachers and 21 other students from the Kuala Kangsar Vocational College, about 45km from here.

They were on a three-day camping trip to the mountain.

It was reported that the teachers discovered the four missing at about 2.30pm on Sunday but only alerted the Fire and Rescue Department at about 10pm.

The two other missing students were found near the river situated about 13km away from the Kem Bina Negara Ulu Kenas at about 9am on Tuesday.

Supt Ahmad Rabawi said the two students who were rescued, Muhammad Putera Rafii and Siti Azimah Mohd Fitri, were still traumatised by the incident.

At a press conference here yesterday, acting Perak Education Department director Mohd Idris Mohd Ramli said the group had descended the mountain at 8pm on Sunday and not at 2.30pm as reported.

Asked if action would be taken against the teachers involved, he said the department would only issue a statement on the incident after obtaining reports from the college and the search and rescue team.

On allegations by parents of the students that they were only informed about the children's disappearance at 6am the day after the incident, Mohd Idris said he did not have any information on that.

SJK (C) Sungai Chua to start single session next year

Posted: 19 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

KAJANG: With the completion of two new blocks by the middle of the year, SJK (C) Sungai Chua will finally have enough classrooms for a single session.

The Chinese primary school will start its single session in the morning next year.

MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the RM3.7mil project, which began in June last year, was approved by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin before the last general election.

"It is 80% completed now and we expect this to be finished by June or July this year. Both the parents and teachers have been waiting for many years for a single session.

"This project proves to be another success by the Barisan Nasional government to fulfil its promise to the people," he said after visiting the project site at Sungai Chua new village.

The school, which was set up in 1952, currently has over 1,500 pupils using 21 classrooms.

The Education Ministry, said Dr Wee, had also approved two new Chinese primary schools in Hulu Langat.

"The SJK (C) Bandar Sungai Long project is 95% completed now," he said, adding that the new school could accommodate more than 2,000 pupils.

However, Dr Wee said the fate of SJK (C) Kajang 2 in Kajang Utama was still uncertain.

"Until now, the project to build the new school cannot begin despite approval from the Federal Govern­ment many years ago. We have applied for land title for the school in April 2012. However, till now, we have received no news," he said.

"We hope the state government will put aside political differences and let education be their priority."

Meanwhile, MCA Youth lodged a police report against several Opposi­tion leaders over allegations that party vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun closed a Chinese primary school in Petaling Jaya.

The report was lodged against PKR's Batu MP Tian Chua, and DAP's Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah and Pantai Remis state assemblyman Nga Kor Ming for accusing Chew, who was Petaling Jaya Utara MP in 2000, of closing SJK (C) Damansara.

Its secretary-general Leong Kim Soon said the allegations had tarnished the good name and reputation of Chew, who is now Barisan Nasional candidate in the Kajang by-election.

The school, said Leong, was shifted due to a highway built next to the school, adding that "the original school is still operating".
