‘1Toilet’ plan to let teachers and students mingle freely

KUALA TERENGGANU: The state government will introduce a “1Toilet” policy in a move to liberalise education, where teachers – and even principals – will soon have to share toilets with their students.

State Education, Higher Learning, Human Resource, Science and Technology Committee chairman Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman said the policy was mooted in line with the 1Malaysia concept, and teachers and students could have a feeling of “oneness”.

“We want students to have a sense of belonging that we believe would inspire them to excel further in their education.

“When students share the toilets with the teacher, they (students) will believe that they are on par with academicians and this automatically invokes a sense of being important to an organisation, which, in this case, is the school,” he said here yesterday.

“We are not compelling the school authorities to apply the policy. It is their prerogative,” said Ahmad Razif.

“So far, we have one school in Hulu Terengganu that has implemented the policy a few days ago. It has received positive feedback from the school management although it is still premature for us to evaluate its efficiency,” he said.

Ahmad Razif said that under the policy, teachers and students would also be encouraged to sit within a common space at school canteens during recess.

“This means that teachers and students will mingle freely during recess,” he said.

Ahmad Razif said the policy had initially been proposed by Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said earlier this year but that it took some time for it to be properly drafted.

On another matter, Ahmad Razif said the state government would continue to send students to pursue medicine and dentistry in recognised universities in Indonesia.

“We are looking into the option of sending our students to universities in areas classified as non-earthquake prone areas in Indonesia,” he said.

Ahmad Razif said the state government was also in the midst of discussions with officials from University Padjadjaran of Bandung on the possibility of sending Terengganu students for medical courses there.

He said other countries that the state government was planning to send their medical undergraduates next year were Poland and Russia.

Happy Deepavali to all.
May Samy Vellu come to his senses that his fire is long extinguished.

By the way, the Umno-linked Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian gave scant coverage to KJ's call to the Malays to leave behind their siege mentality and shift from a mindset of Malay dominance to Malay leadership. They focused on other portions of his speech that proposed financial assistance for young families, and Umno Youth's plans to attract more members.

KJ has no influence on Utusan?

Puteri Umno called for the Government to ban the production of “horror, mystical and superstitious” movies. It was claimed that films of this genre could weaken the faith of Muslims in the country.

Aiyoh!
I never know the faith of Muslim in Malaysia is so weak?

I thought UMNO was the one who have created the most horror stories themselves?

Happy Deepavali to Hindu Malaysians and all Malaysians.

Deepavali is celebrated this year in the midst of the great fanfare of Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia slogan – which is in fact an admission of the failure of the 52-year nation building policy to create unity, equality, justice and harmony out of the diverse Malaysian citizenry, regardless of race, religion and culture.

This is the time for serious reflection how to go beyond sloganeering to end the disunity, discrimination and marginalization in Malaysia for the past half-century so that every Malaysian, regardless of race, religion or culture can find common pride as citizens of this country.

Makkal Sakti for the triumph of good over evil to ensure unity, equality, justice and harmony among Malaysians regardless of race, religion or culture.

Zubaidah said...

When Malay leaders issued repeated warnings to the non-Malays to stop questioning the special Malay position, it reflected their feelings of helplessness, victimisation and defensiveness.

It is pointless for the Malays to think they are dominant when in reality, they need to progress socially and economically.

Selamat Deepavali kepada semua kaum India. Saya ramai kawan dan berkawan dengan orang India..ramai yang berhati mulia dan di hormati..tapi bila ada orang seperti P.Uthayakumar..dan Hindraf saya benci sebencinya kepada keling ni...dan ingat majotiti Melayu berperasaan seperti ini. Patut le orang kata kalau jumpa keling dan ular..pukul keling dulu. Apa sangat dia nak kelahi dengan orang Melayu ni..yang dah begitu lama menerima mereka dalam masyarakatnya. Kaum India di Malaysia kalaulah mereka berhemah dan punya harga diri cari Uthayakumar dan sejenis dengannya dan ajar mereka secukupnya . Kaum India di Malaysia akan rugi apabila orang Melayu membenci dan mendendam..orang Melayu tak rugi apa-apa ..ini bumi Melayu.

Najib Razak contradicted himself in his speech last Thursday at the Umno General Assembly. He spoke of the all-embracing 1Malaysia concept on one hand and of the need to retain the New Economic Policy (NEP) on the other. The Native Americans in old cowboy movies might have said that he spoke with a forked tongue.

How can you have the NEP and at the same time say that we are all 1Malaysia? The NEP is exclusive to a particular group of people, and such exclusivity sets them apart. There is no 1Malaysia; there are 2Malaysias.

KJ Rembau said...

Pembaharuan ke arah kepimpinan nasional Melayu yang lebih jitu akan boleh dilaksanakan sekiranya orang Melayu sendiri membuat anjakan kepada perjuangan yang berbekalkan keyakinan ketamadunan kita, atau civilisational confidence. Keyakinan ketamadunan ini bermakna kita yakin dengan keupayaan bangsa untuk melangkah ke hadapan, mengukir kejayaan tanpa perlu takut bayang-bayang sendiri. Inilah cabaran generasi kita.

Saya menyebut soal cabaran generasi, kerana untuk terlalu lama orang Melayu dan UMNO sendiri, berada dalam perspektif minda atau mindset yang negatif dan defensif. Kita merasakan diri kita seolah-olah diserang atau under siege, dan segala gerak kerja seakan-akan disalurkan ke arah mempertahankan keistimewaan Melayu yang kita anggap sentiasa dicabar. Saya menyeru orang Melayu bermula dengan Pemuda untuk keluar dari perspektif minda ini. Tidak dinafikan, bahawa Perkara 153 Perlembagaan, yang menjamin kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera, adalah keramat buat kita. Namun, jika dikaji dengan teliti, Perkara 153 hampir mustahil untuk dilucutkan daripada Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Sebarang perubahan memerlukan bukan sahaja kelulusan 2/3 Parlimen, tetapi mesti juga mendapat perkenan dari Majlis Raja-Raja. Ini sudah cukup mengingatkan kita bahawa secara realistiknya, kedudukan istimewa kita tidak mungkin boleh diubah.

A Malaysian-manufactured ute has turned in the worst crash test performance of any vehicle being sold here, Consumer New Zealand warns.

The Proton Jumbuck ($24,000) joined two other utes available in New Zealand in being given dismal safety ratings by independent crash test organisation Ancap (Australasian New Car Assessment Programme).

The two-door Jumbuck was awarded the lowest possible one-star rating after its performance in frontal offset and side impact crash tests.

Ancap scores vehicles from zero to five stars, depending on the safety features and protection of the driver and passengers.

The ute’s cabin was severely deformed in the 64km/h offset crash test. It offered poor head protection for the driver and passenger, and poor leg protection for the driver.

It also lacked airbags, ABS, and electronic stability control – a feature that senses skidding and individually brakes the wheels, helping the driver to regain control.

The two-door Chinese-manufactured Great Wall Motors SA220 ($22,000) was given a lowly two-star rating, with findings that its protection for the driver was poor and its passenger compartment buckled in a frontal offset crash test.

While Great Wall Motors’ larger four-door V240 ($27,000) model has dual front airbags and ABS brakes, it was also awarded only a two-star rating.

Consumer NZ testing manager Hamish Wilson said potential buyers should steer clear of these utes.

“We don’t believe these vehicles should be allowed on the road.”

He said the minimum standard for a new ute should be four stars. The Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi Triton and several Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore utes achieved this.

The difference in safety between a two-star and a four-star ute was significant, he said.

“It can mean the difference between walking away from a crash and being taken away in an ambulance.”

Patrick,

When are u going to write about the sad story of Iskandar Malaysia?

This stupid project was "initiated" by Pak Lah (as he claimed), but actually its those wankers of 4th floor boys esp KJ and Ganen. So much taxpayers' money have been spent on the project, but who's benefiting? the johorean for sure will get nothing out of it except hot air, not even a fart. And those bloody sporeans are buying land and house in JB like nobody's business, freehold some more. Just imagine if this thing continue, in 20 years time, JBs have to move to Kluang ma. Kluang does not sound nice lor.

Do u know this new agency to run Iskandar Msia called IRDA, what they do is hiring consultants to do 30 over blueprints. Who needs blueprints? They think those blueprints will make Johorean rich hah? bloody stupid or what?

And some more Patrick, they are highly paid. I heard more than 15 staff in IRDA are paid over RM30k per month! wallawey! and this IRDA dont even generate revenue. They just got "free" money from MoF about RM100 million ++ per annum. Free money my ass.

So Patrick i hope u can write something about IRDA and Iskandar Msia. Since Pak Lah is no longer around, just close the stupid project la. waste of taxpayers' money.

thanks brader

Happy Deepavalli

Jawa Johor,

So many people in JB knew about Datuk Ikmal's fXXXing activities. That's why he was fired from IRDA. But now he is the chairman of Faber and director of UEM Land. so, those in Faber n UEM Land beware. This moron has already got 3 wives and still not enough! I hope he will die and rot in hell. Besides that, he also made few deals for himself. Need to make money ma, so many commitment at home. I really don't know what will happen to this country. Too many corruptions and people just close one eye.

Iskandar Johor is Pak Lah's project. I don't think it is part of najib's 1Malaysia blueprint.
It is an ultra-ambitious project given its scale, but I doubt nothing concrete is coming up beyond its blueprint. The Johor governement can only have its Nusajaya (modeled after Puterajaya) with government buildings.

Iskandar has pride in Legoland (open in 2012?). Who would go there when there is a more entertaining alternative in Universal Studio in Sentosa Singapore where one can also gamble and drink?

Najib slammed the Malays who say they no longer need “crutches” and called them arrogant. He asked, “What about the Malays who still require help? Is it fair if the group who still need crutches are denied help?”

Why hasn’t he thought of providing help to people of all races who need “crutches”? Wouldn’t that be more in line with 1Malaysia? All he needs to do is look at the Malaysian Economic Agenda proposed by Pakatan Rakyat. Go back to basics – have an affirmative action programme based on need. Isn’t that the original intent of the NEP?

It looks like Najib was invoking the NEP at the assembly expressly to play to the Malay gallery, to ensure that his regular customers will remain faithful. Meanwhile, the non-Malay customers can wait. He will find some other occasion in the future to throw them small gifts and lure them to buy his merchandise.

Typical Singaporean said...

REFLECTION OF A TYPICAL SINGAPOREAN

I am Ong Ah Tee living in Kampong Chai Chee
Life used to be simple and HAPPY
I worked hard in my STUDIES
I learned A-B-C, and everything from 1, 2, and 3.
Primary school was quite easy I passed PSLE

Then I went to SECONDARY
The subjects include HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY
Physics, Biology and CHEMISTRY
After O levels I went to JC

They said you live in Singapore very LUCKY
This is a small humid tropical COUNTRY
Surrounded by unknown potential ENEMIES
Boys turned 18 must go to ARMY for the tour of duty
After that we may continue our Studies
The girls can just sit back, relax, and watch TV
They come to this world only to "lim kopi, kway jit chee"

No one lives on free meals or depends on CHARITY
I want to take up IT, but I had no money to go to University or Poly
So I went to work at FACTORY
Working hard to earn a little lousy SALARY
After CPF and INCOME TAX, I have just enough money to buy ROTI and ride in MRT.

My bosses show me no SYMPATHY
Mumbling over my shoulder daily: "HURRY, HURRY and HURRY !"
Accusing me of always trying to get MC
But my sickness was due to over stretch OT
Going home after midnight by TAXI
And they pay me only bus fee

My colleague likes me because of my honesty and can easily bully
They said I don't know how to carry.

I Park-Tor and became STEADY
Finally had to MARRY
Because gahment gave baby bonus MONEY
I lost money holding Wedding Dinner PARTY
Cheeky friends donating only cheap PANTY
After marriage, nothing was EASY
In one year, I became DADDY
I can't support my family and our BABY
Being tied down for life to repay 2 rooms HDB and rising monthly
utilities to PUB
My bank account has NO MONEY
POSB balance is almost EMPTY
DBS wants to charge me EXTRA FEE
Insisting that "Nothing is FREE!"
So I moonlight as KARANG GUNI
Many times I want to jump MRT
But that is not EASY
My wife cries: "Who is going to support me and our BABY?"
So I can't MATI.

I went to seek assistance from the MP
His reply was simple and easy:
"Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me".
He never tells me any convincing Policy..

How to help the poor with more GST?

Why I cannot have pay increase but they can have increase?
Before, my MP said "Vote for me, we give you sweeties".
Now, they want to increase their salary, because "You voted me".
They claim they made good economy for our country.
They benchmark themselves using GDP.
They said, "To get the best man, you have to pay high fee"


Next will be the GST..
My boss say "no" to increase in salary,
It's really make me worry..
Our Health Ministry said let GP set their consultation fee.
If the GP charges high fee, don't let them see.
No money, how can be healthy
If fall sick, can only mati
In hospital, can afford Class C.
I don't mind all nurses are aunty,
But only one doctor to see
No money for operation, I will Tan Si.
