OGDC Tech. Challenge competition & AAC's Camp

The 3rd OGDC Tech. Challenge competition (preliminary) was held today at Brunei Shell Recreation Club (BSRC), Seria. 38 secondary schools participate in the preliminary round and only 10 schools with the highest points will proceed to the final round on Monday, 4 August 2008 at The Big Top, OGDC.

The winners will received
* 1st place - trophy & B$300.00
* 2nd place - trophy & B$200.00
* 3rd place - trophy & B$150.00

Wish I could post the top 10 finalist....will do it tomorrow....

Had a long chat with Cikgu Omar & Cikgu Asma from AAC..with regards to the 2 days & 1 nite camp (Kem pelajar menuju kecemerlangan) that will be organised from 23 - 24 Aug 2008 with the purpose to;
* Meningkatkan prestasi akademik pelajar kerarah kecemerlangan
* Melahirkan pelajar yang cemerlang dan berakhlak mulia
* Meningkatkan motivasi serta minat pelajar dalam menimba ilmu pengetahuan

In our long chat, we were on the topic of why some of the students did not do well in class. A survey was done to find out the reasons for their poor exam results...(students have to include the problems that they faced at home and school). Their responses are quite overwhelming;

Myself (the problem with them)
* selalu lepak
* kawan bawa jalan
* difficulty understand maths & sciences - because of payah
* selalu keboringan
* no motivation

Schools (the problem that they face at school)
* Selalu mengantuk
* becerita dalam class
* inda faham apa yang di ajar

* no place to study
* tidur selalu
* main game

These are some of the typical problems that are not only faced by students in AAC but also majority of the students. They do not have the motivation nor the vision to be a pelajar cemerlang. This is really sad! if these issues are not address soon...these students will have difficulties in their future. Entry to higher institution is getting 'stricter'...and job is getting scarce (off course competition is very stiff)..those without a good (minimum 5 'o' levels) qualification will faced a difficulty task in getting a good job...

My advised is study hard get a good results, go to University and get a good job!...
