A total of 300 excellent teachers from various subjects gathered at the 7th MGCM conference recently. Finally, the conference took off despite a few change of dates. The official opening ceremony was graced by Dato Dr Puad Zakarshi, Deputy Education Minister and the closing ceremony by Tan Sri Muhyidin Yassin, the Education Minister himself. The paper presentation I enjoyed most was from Pn Hjh Serina Sauni, Sains Miri principal who showcased many programmes she carried out in all the five schools where whe was principal. Great ideas! And I thought she was very dynamic despite her height (4 ft 11)!!
In addition, 17 papers were presented by excellent teachers from different subjects during the parallel sessions. Mine was the first in Pacific Ballroom A. This was my third presentation at the national convention and I was happy to be able to share my action research. It was good to meet many friends, Hema, Vasantha, Gurdashan, Rohaida, Mala, Kak Aisyah, Jariah just to name a few. After my paper, I had a great conversation with the Singapore presenters, Tn Hj Mohd Noh Daipi (Assistant Director, MOE Singapore) and Pn Fadillah Isnin (Head of Languages, Moe Singapore) during the tea break. Tan Sri Muhyiddin launched two books - Selagi Masih Muda (a collection of short stories by GCs) and Strategi P & P Guru Cemerlang. Hope to upload the slides soon.
