SMK Tropicana Visit

Yes, I was bored to my bones and i didn't had anything particularly interesting to do. So I went back to school and did a write up about it. For those who wants recent insight about it, cheers and indulge.. *btw, it started with Ann and Khit getting Emo about all these....*School, Still How it used to be.. Only looking better...

Firstly, I went to school to donate some of my unused revision, text other various books.
Besides that, I too went asking and surveying about how school has changed over the pass 6 months.. Giving that 6 months isn't too short a time.. Here's 1 of the drastic changes:

The school canteen has been revamped, cleaned, painted and all sorts of improvement that can be done in the short 6 months are either done or in the process..
School canteen is the major if not only food provider in the school compounds. Having stuff and scuffle over the same food over the last few years, changes are starting to show..
Fast-food delivery services made their daily errands to the school gate, providing the students with their daily meals.
The problems of the previous school canteen was very obvious.

En.Suhaimi is the current tender to the school canteen, having more than 30 years of experience in the food industry and being to various other schools. Having showed various improvement in the status of the school canteen, En.Suhaimi shares with us his tactics and believes of success.
He believes that the progress and character of a student is widely affected by the food services provided by the school.
" The dialog between Students, Teachers and the canteen operator is vital to the success of the canteen." -En.Suhaimi"

The School's main coutyard

Having physical changes in the school compound, the school administration has already set in motion plans to change the ways and culture of the school.
Pn. Sakiah as our headmistress aims to increase the passing rate for both PMR and SPM this year. With the notion of the school being more recognize, various inter-school competition had been held in this school. She also would continue the quality improvement in the results of SPM from the previous 2 batch. The upcoming event is the "Hari Anugerah Cemerlang 2007/2008" which gives out tokens of appreciation to students whom fared well in their examination. This event would be held on the 26th of April concurrently with the 7th PIBG meeting. Students, Ex-students and parents are encourage to attend the event to show support for the school.

The Mini Botanical Garden with reflexology path

Encik Razaman being the PK Ko-ko has new plans and structure to improve the way Co-curriculum activities are being carried out in the school. His theme of events this year is "Explore and Explode", he pushes to explore the possibilities of club and bodies of the school. With that, he would launch the school's activities to high status with an exploding event.
In conjunction of the school planning, there would be a in-school camp for all uniform bodies in the school. Ex-students that want to pass their knowledge to the younger are welcome to school.

School main compound.

Last but not least, the once maths genius Sufiah Yusof whom caused much shock to the Malaysian community serves as a lesson to school students. In a public speaking speech, Sarah from 2A gives her piece of mind on the infamous Sufiah Yusof.

I am Sarah from 2 Amanah. The title of my talk today is called "A Genius Hitting Rock Bottom".
I would like to talk about the once 13 year old genius we've all heard of. I'm talking about this specific person today because I would like to prove how at once point of this life, one can be at the highest stage possible and the next minute yoiu can hit rock bottom.
One can be at the highest stage possible and the next minute you can hit rock bottom

Sufiah Yusof was just 13 years old when she was admitted to Oxford University, one of the most prestigious universities of the world to further her studies in mathematics.Sufiah was homeschooled and was brought up in a very strict environment. She was claimed to be once of the geniuses of the world because mostly at that age, an ordinary person would just be in secondary school.
At the age of 15, after 2 years in university, Sufiah ran way. She claimed to have experience physical and psychological pressure from her father.
Now after 10 years, the country was shocked to hear that Sufiah is now a prostitute. The once renowned young genius whom we expected to be highly successful in studies and life has been derailed. She is now involved in something morally and religiously wrong. She has disappointed her family and The world.
Therefore, no matter how hard-working you are and how well you perform in school today, would not guarantee you a good and successful like if it is not done willingly and full heartedly. Good morals and a strong believe in god also plays a big role to direct us to the right path.
