National Education Philosophy (Falsafah Pendidikan Negara)

   This is again, something all teachers (in Malaysia)  should have drilled into their minds. Memorise it if you haven't, and understand the essence of it.

   The National Education Philosophy

   "Education in Malaysia is an on-going efforts towards further developing the potential of individuals in a holistic and integrated manner, so as to produce individuals who are intelectually, spiritually, emotionally and physically balanced and harmonic, based on a firm belief in and devotion to God. Such an effort is designed to produce Malaysian citizens who are knowledgeable and competent, who possess high moral standards and who are responsible and capable of achieving high level of personal well-being as well as being able to contribute to the harmony and betterment of the family, the society and the nation at large."

   Falsafah Pendidikan Negara

   "Pendidikan di Malaysia adalah suatu usaha berterusan ke arah memperkembangkan lagi potensi individu secara menyeluruh dan bersepadu untuk mewujudkan insan yang seimbang dan  harmonis dari segi intelek, rohani, emosi dan jasmani berdasarkan kepercayaan dan kepatuhan kepada Tuhan. Usaha ini adalah bagi melahirkan rakyat Malaysia yang berilmu pengetahuan, berakhlak mulia, bertanggungjawab dan berkeupayaan mencapai kesejahteraan diri serta memberi sumbangan terhadap keharmonian dan kemakmuran masyarakat dan negara.”  

   Again a good topic for discussion.

   p.s. I'm preparing a post on tips for attending interviews, with the SPP interview in mind. Stay tuned.

The Principles of Nationhood (Rukun Negara)

   I've been reading some stuff in preparation for the SPP interview. Since I'm an English teacher, I hope they'll ask me questions in English, I'm  not used to formal conversation in Malay, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't prepare to use formal BM. Gosh I'm nervous.

   This is something all Malaysians, and definitely teachers, should know.

The Principles of Nationhood
1. Belief in God
2. Loyalty to the King and Country
3. The Supremacy of the Constitution
4. Sovereignty of the Law
5. Courtesy and Morality

Rukun Negara
1. Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
2. Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara
3. Keluhuran Perlembagaan
4.  Kedaulatan Undang-Undang
5. Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan

   I think some discussion on each principle would be interesting. I'll try to work something out.

News: SPP Interview

   I received news that I have to go for the DG41 SPP interview on 23rd November. Apparently you have to go for interviews first now before you get posted, even if you're from the IPG line.

   Will post more on this soon.

   [THIS is where you check for the date and place for the interview.]
