THE Muhammad Alam Primary School, Seria Wednesday held their 2nd parent-teacher meeting for the Year 6 students at Az-Zawawi hall.
The objectives of the meeting were to share the Check Point Test with the parents and guardians of the Year 6 students which was held earlier in February and at the same time to conduct the ‘Student’s Pledge’ and ‘Parent’s Hope’ activity while fostering better relationships between the parents and the guardians with the teachers.
Assistant Headmistress Hayati binti Haji Ismail explained to the parents and guardians that the Student’s Pledge are promises written by the Year 6 students to their parents and teachers about their targets for each Check Point Test and PSR whereas Parent’s Hope is written by parents about their hopes for their children towards 2015’s PSR.
Hayati binti Haji Ismail told the Bulletin that the Check Point Tests held in every two months are one of the their initiatives to continuously ensure that the students’ performance is maintained well while also keeping the parents informed of any progress or otherwise through meetings and private appointments.
Saheril bin Morni, 43, who has been taking care of his foster child Md Khairul Ikhwan bin Rosmali, said that the meeting helped them to be more engaged in their children’s performance.
“We hope that our child will achieve his dreams of becoming a doctor and I believe in the teachers’ concern about their students’ performance; it will help my son a lot,” he said.
Currently, there are 36 students studying in Year 6 at the Muhammad Alam Primary School, Seria, who undergo Check Point Tests which are mandatory for every student in Year 6 in every cluster with the final one being the Qualifying Exam which will be held in August.
