Last week we had our first school assembly. It was a proud moment for Pak Haji and me. After 2 years of struggling trying to establish the school, we now have a school assembly. We will have the assembly once a fortnight on a sunday morning (our first day of the week) The students take their marching position in rows and then to the order of their commander, turn aroud to face us the teachers and staff. First, the students sang Negaraku, then the Asmaulhusna.( the names of surahs in Al Quran as a song, to be added as the third song later in future assemblies ). The Pengetua then addressed the assembly mentioning how proud he is of his students who has shown good behaviour especially in public and that they are to always matain such examplary behaviour. Then the decipline teacher spoke and then lastly one of the ustaz said the doa and the assemly ended.
The assembly reminded me of my school days when I was a prefect and I did my duties with full responsibilty. Sometimes during assemblies one of the prefects had the duty to raise the flag when the National anthem was sang. So, in the case of our present school, we have yet to put up the flag post!
