First, a school in Klang Valley had issued instructions to bring non-WET food for Canteen Day.

Now, a school in Malacca forced female students to lift their skirts up to identify which student was menstruating http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/nst/Friday/National/20061110083329/Article/local1_html

What is going on with schools in Malaysia?

MALACCA: Wednesday was a day when children were celebrated, but at the SK Infant Jesus Convent (I) it turned into a nightmare for about 120 pupils.

Amid class parties and celebrations to usher Children’s Day, pupils from nine classes of Primary Four, Five and Six were instructed to gather at the school hall.

They were told about the sanitary pad and the culprit was advised to step forward.

"However, no one came forward. The teachers then paraded the students into the washroom and asked those wearing skirts to lift them up while those in jeans to unzip," said one pupil.

"I cried during the incident... it was embarrassing," said another pupil.
If I am one of the parents, I will take a used sanitary pad and shaft it into the mouth of the disciplinary teacher and her assistant as well. Where did they learn this kind of punishment from? Why can't they just educate the youngs girls many of whom may be menstruating for the first time. Think of those girls who have no mothers or older sisters to share the intimacy with. These girls have no one to turn to. Arrrghh ... I better stop talking about it. If it is in Subang Jaya, you bet I will be heading for the school now. I am really mad. Why? I have a 13 year old daughter who have just experienced her first.

Well PCYeoh, I can understand why you're mad about the whole issue. I am just as mad with the unprofessional immature way the teachers go about doing this. I am not even sure now if the teachers in the schools are really up to what they are paid to do. I suppose we should blame it on the whole system failure. What are we parents to do if we get this kind of worrisome incidents repeatedly at schools....

Do the girls manstruated at this early age. 12 and below???
It could be done by one of the younger teachers from the kampong :rolleyes:

These teachers should be sent back to school or institutionalized. They are in no way capable of handling the future of this country, our children! If this had happened in Subang, I guess the whole of Subang Jaya would be there!

what are the legal issues involved in this case? i am sure that something can be done. such atrocious act cannot be left alone. disciplinary or not.....lifting the skirt and the public display of privates esp of KIDS is disturbing. one has to wonder if there was any other intention behind the act. i may not have a child but i sure as hell am not keeping quiet and doing nothing about it. these people have to be punished :mad:

Speaking from personal experience, a similiar case like this happened when I was in primary school as well.

The toilets and the flushes were all filled with used sanitary pads, and the school spent a fortune on the plumbing that followed due to the blocked toilets and all...

So the teacher came and asked all those whom were having their menses to step forward (to receive a whole load of lecture lah), and when there were only a handful up there, the teachers resorted to going around and groping each student's ass to feel for the sanitary napkin. And it's not done merely once, but like a couple of times by different teachers.

A few of the prefects were also roped in to do this to their fellow students.

While most of us cried foul, there wasn't much that we could've done cos they made it like as if it was all our fault for menstruating. And our parents will laugh at us if we told them something like this happened. Means that we cannot maintain our own hygiene. So most of us kept mum about it.

Damn...now, 10 years later, I still can remember this incident clearly in my head.

Talk about being traumatised.

Seriously, the school authorities need to screw their heads on right first before going around groping each student's ass or asking them to strip to prove what only what they want to see for themselves.

p/s - if some of you remember a previous article i posted about my primary school here (http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/upload/showthread.php?t=12811) , you can sorta see a pattern - about how obsessed my school is with toilets.

Uhm, they were marched into the washroom.

In any case, this is a very common scene in primary school when girls starts menstruating. What the teachers have done was 'cruel', but any suggestions on how to tackle these kinda situation in the future? Maybe we should start by saying 'having menstruation is a gift, a blessing, not a shame' to the gals.

I don't mensurate (see I can't even spell the word correctly) but I am very puzzled and troubled too why the girls wear their sanitary pads on their arses.

"School's humiliating practice of stripping to check for tattoos"

MY daughter came back from school yesterday afternoon complaining that her
school (Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sultan Abdul Samad Klang) is
conducting full physical checks on students to check for tattoos.

What annoyed most parents was that the teachers insisted that these
students strip (right down to the panties) in front of three teachers.

While the teachers claimed that this is a directive from the Education
Ministry, I find such action unbelievable and totally unacceptable.

It is disgusting and a total humiliation. It will affect the children's
emotional state.

SK Infant Jesus (I) used to be my old school too.

The teachers are heartless for doing the strip search on these young girls.
From my knowledge of the school toilets, there were no proper disposal bins for sanitary pads. Even some of the toilets do not have proper locks.

Imagine doing your business and some one open the door accidently !
It happened to me several times. So embarassing. :o

Anyway, as I said - the teachers there are heartless.
There was another incident many years ago that those who forgot to bring their school shorts will have to run around the school field in their panties.
Unfortunately, I happened to be one of the students & I was in Std 2. Never dare to inform my parents then.

Looks like the teachers in that particular school never change.

Get all the parent together and march into the headmistress room.
Bring along some news reporters as well.
Demand for the circular send to the school by the ministry.that say that "teachers claimed that this is a directive from the Education Ministry".
If cannot produce, demand for a public appology.

The last time the Music teacher in one of the subang Jaya school, wheck the head of my son (who was in std 5) with a plastic flute, I went looking for that teacher. He dare not come out to meet me but gave a note of appology to the headmaster to hand to me. My intention that day was to bash him up even if I was to be taken to the polis station for assault
The headmaster also appologised on his behalf.

For things like all the above, parents should not let the teachers go free. :mad:

A directive from the Education Ministry does'nt mean it is lawful. An army captain cannot say he raped his prisoners because the General ordered him to do so.
During my time, keeping Beatles hair style was a big issue in schools. There was actually no law that students cannot keep long hair. Parents then regarded headmasters as lords. Very Confucian. Nobody ever ever question the authority of the headmaster.
I got a free crop from the Industrial class master. The bastard was enjoying himself. It's hard to forget that.
Years later, during an old boys' dinner, we had our pay-back time.

Some teachers are just sadists.

I wonder if they are kind and understanding teachers, teachers who really love children. I guess not, or else they would NOT put children thru such humiliation. :( Or have they forgotten all about the passion of teaching, or are they not passionate about teaching at all in the first place.

It's very disheartening to hear news like these. Seriously what's wrong with these teachers.

i dunno abt u guys but during my skool days, a teacher would not even survive a day in my class. we got teachers sacked, changed teachers countless times, even the principal gave it a go to try to 'tame' us but gave up after 2 weeks. and guess who eventually got to 'overcome' us? a very young and inexperienced relieve teacher! she broke down and cried on the first day, ran out, told principal shes not coming back. but next day, she came back! well, as the story goes, she used the soft approach - incentives instead of punishment, dedication and attention instead of writing us off and the 'part of the gang' method. it worked for the teacher and for us so much so when her tour of duty was up six mths later, we petitioned (to the skool and MOE) for her to stay and continue with us. again, she was moved to tears and this added weight to her resume as a 'super teacher'... MOE was impressed and upgraded her status to full teacher. and she was our one and only form teacher til we left skool..
haiii, where are all these super teachers now?

I wonder those teachers who did the "inspections" can be charged for mollestation and indecent behaviour.

i wonder what happens if the gal was asked to strip and she was wearing G-strings. Would the teachers accuse her of something illogical?

Wow, you really can stretch your mind that far. The only G-string I dare touch happens to be on my guitar which also happens to resemble the perfect shape of a woman's body. I hope I am not saying anything sexist.
