Pemantauan bersepadu siri 2 BPTV/LP/BPK/JNJK sedang diadakan di KVSM.  3 orang pegawai datang dari jabatan tersebut untuk memantau perjalanan semester pendek Kolej Vokasional Seri Manjung.
Gambar-gambar di atas menunjukkan, pegawai-pegawai tersebut dalam sesi perbincangan dengan timbalan pengarah dan ketua-ketua jabatan dan beberapa orang ketua unit.


One of the girls in 5VE4 is suffering from a nerve disorder. I am not too sure of the medical name as it sounded really bombastic when the deputy director, Encik Wan Yusaini mentioned it during the Asset meeting. But what I know is the girl, Nurul Atikah, has problems moving around. Initially, she said that she couldn't keep her balance and kept falling and then it got worse. She started having trouble walking. She was actually on medical leave for 2 months whereby she went for tests at the hospital in Kuala Lumpur. The doctors took some tissue samples from her and the results would be out at the end of June.
Aiyoh! Atikah will be sitting for her SPM examination in November and here she is facing problems of another kind. She returned to school last week and had to use a wheelchair. When in the college grounds, she moves around with a walking stick assisted by a friend (see above picture). To compound matters, her class is on the third floor. Mind you, she has to use a lot of effort to move up one step, what more 3 flights of stairs to the third floor. The teachers who teach her class have been making use of the canteen, the Science lab, the screening room and the library to carry out their lessons with her class.
I had a talk with the assistant director, Encik Wan Yusaini, and asked if the girl's classroom could be relocated to one at the ground floor. He was agreeable and found an available classroom in the other block.
So, it was operation move class today for my students. I used my English Language period to do the moving as the students had sports practice in the afternoon. After all, the extra classes would be starting next week and I could easily replace the lessons then. Anyway, I feel that the two periods that my students and I had sacrificed to do the moving is actually a lesson in itself. It taught the boys and girls to be more considerate and compassionate to another human being.
After the sweeping, dusting, moping, moving and arranging, the students said prayers to bless their new classroom. The classroom had been left vacant for more than half a year and there might be spirits dwelling there, so the special prayers were said to remove their presence.


We had two meetings back to back in college yesterday morning.  Both meetings were chaired by Puan Hajah Intan Suhana bt Kamarudin, the director of the college. The first meeting was for the KVSM finance and the second was on Assets.

The old labels for the herbs in the Taman Herba were damaged after a few months of being exposed to the sun and rain.  That was why my librarians were helping to make new ones to replace the old.

This morning Puan Kamariah Sulaiman, the Head of Department for General Studies (Pengajian Umum) gave a briefing to the Year 1 students about the subjects in her department.  Besides the 62 students in the Pengayaan Group, the students from her class also attended the session.
After her briefing, Puan Kamariah showed slides of her visit to Mecca for her umrah.  While looking at the slide show, the students also listened to Puan Kamariah's commentary on the pictures she took.
