AS part of their International Networking Programme (ETOS Mathematics and Rugby), Sekolah Berasrama Penuh (SBP) Integrasi, Bukit Rakit, which was awarded with the High Performing School status in 2012 by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia, paid an educational visit to St George’s School yesterday. SBP Integrasi, Bukit Rakit, shared two of their school practices with St George’s School – the use of the Geometer Sketchpad (GSP) and the playing of Sudoku in relation to the teaching of the Mathematics subject.
The delegation of 16 students from Kuala Terengganu was led by Mohd Afflaha Solihin bin Sulaiman and Zura Halina binti Hussain. In his welcome address, the Principal of St George’s School, Janidi Jingan, hoped that St George’s School teachers would gain knowledge on the use of the Geometer sketchpad and would help motivate and spark greater interest in the students towards the learning of mathematics. He further said that playing Sudoku offered immense mental benefits as the game sharpened mind and offered a good brain challenge. It improved a person’s thinking skills by developing logical and critical thinking and helped children solve problems effectively. Janidi also spoke on a study that says Sudoku helps in delaying the effect of ageing by stimulating the brain regularly.
In the reciprocal address, Mohd Afflaha Solihin bin Sulaiman thanked St George’s School for its hospitality and expressed keenness in working with the school to exchange best practices and knowledge.
