Hi all,

Was at SMK USJ4 last week to find out which class my child will be in Form 1 in 2010. At the school's notice board, there was a notice about the school starting a KRK class and the requirement is those who obtained 5As or 4A's + 1B in UPSR are eligible.

Would appreciate if someone can shed some light on what this KRK class is all about.

Thank you.

No need to worry,previously it used to be Subang Utama,then USJ12 or USJ13 a prefer first choice school.. by all kiasu parents but now i think it's Seafield also by all kiasu parents.Why ? why not play an active role in PTA and get to know the parents better and make the school better!

If what you say is true then certainly no need to find out more.

With our current public school education system, it is up to the parents to be more involved in the school's programs and try to decide what's best for their children. One way of course is as you have pointed out, to play an active role in PTA.

I found out in M'sia alot of parents e.g in Subang, organised alot of programs for their little angels like after class, go to piano,swimming,ballet,gymnastic,computers,tution but in the end the angel suffer,mummy suffer from transporting here and there and daddy pokai and finally in their working life semua tak boleh pakai !One must teach them living skills!

Other than living skills, the child needs the right moral values as well.

Office staff says to ask HM. HM was busy with someone but I could not wait. Will provide update once I get the chance to speak with HM. Anyway, looks like not many in this forum interested.

The KRK class as I know it is a "special" class for high achievers or soon to be high achievers (in school). That was what I was told from my friends who are still schooling.

I'm guessing they get more attention and support =]

yup..they gonna put some 3-5 classes fulla the many As & a couple Bs students and spend more time on 'em..the slow leaners, the fulla Bs and Cs and Ds are going the dodo way...hasta la vista baby. :eek:

but the dodo way is not necc bad...these dodo can do do with their hands in technical/vocational schools...using their hands to do do, and let the As use their otaks to plan, strategise, organise etcetc...

*Pelik tapi Ok gak* :D


Yang Banyak dodo latotupai :p

I betcha KRK stands for Kelas Rancangan Khas - or Special Programme Class. I believe that is found in most secondary schools specifically to give special attention to specific students.

Some of you may be disappointed if yr kids don't get in ... but why worry and complain (if they don't get selected). Life still goes on and just like most of us who did not get any special privileges in our time, we still succeeded in life. Success need not be measure by academic success ... it is how we adapt and move up that counts.

BTW, I think there is only ONE such class in each school and how big can one KRK class be? When my kids entered secondary kebangsaan school, there were hundreds of straight A students (my kids aren't the straight A types) ... do you think all were selected for the KRK? My advice is not to fret over it.

Yup, I agree with you. Don't be dissapointed if yr kid don't get in.

From my experience, my daughter get the krk offer but we have to reject it because it's in Kelana Jaya and we have to move to other state. Then form 2, she entered USJ school. Form 2 she got the 1st class but form3, she was 'transfered' to 3rd rating class. I was dissapointed at first because she's among the top 10. I guess they want to mix all the students.

Her PMR's results - straight A's. Thanks God. It's not the school that matter (school factor -30% only)but it's depends on the student's attitude and how we coach/encourage them.

Anyway, hope the best for your kid.

Thanks Trajet and I agree that the major factor is the student's attitude and the support we give them. My concern is that some of these programs are conceived without objectives or targets. Makes you feel that the students are just used as guinea pigs.

You mean the school your child which she attend is a useless school.Her PMR results are your choaching .Just curious as most of the time she is in school and 8 hour she slept and the remaining hrs are your coaching.I also want to learn from you.If i'm not mistaken,both of you are not working only coaching your kid. :confused: :confused: :confused:

Hi,
I didn't mean that her school is useless but what I meant is type of school perhaps will only contribute 30% of the student success and the rest will be the student effort her/himself. School factors incl. teachers effort, facilities and peer preasure/influence.

Wheareas parents will give encouragement, advice, teaching,etc and also lots' of prayer. For me, I don't really coach my daughter coz' I'm working. What usually I did is I always help my daughter to solve or teach her whenever she's stuck with her homeworks.

Thank you.

For 6 years in SJKC, a boy was not race conscious. It was because of KRK his mother has to explain to him why he is different from the majority. From then on, he became more and more conscious how race made a different. To a child who has been taught all the good moral value, fair, equal, helpful, kind, .... It is difficult for him to understand why things go against moral value he learnt. Not that he is so harap of KRK, but the fact that KRK tells a different moral value.

Need to submit the sekolah pilihan for my Year 6 child, am contemplating between these few schools, SMK USJ4, USJ 12, USJ 13 n SMK Seafield.

Appreciate feedback from parents especially those with kids in the mentioned school on school academic performance meaning teachers, discipline etc.

There is not much difference between all the 4 schools cooking mentioned as all of them come from the same pot. It all depends on luck on who are the teachers teaching you and there is no guarantee they get to teach you all your secondary school days. Initially SMK 12 was rated as most favoured as it is a cluster and a disciplined school. It is not now ever since the lau hor was transferred 3 years ago to another school in Puchong to 'rehabilitate' a school there which was facing disciplinary problem.

If I were you, I will opt for the school which is within walking distance from your house since I know where you live. It will save you lots of problem in terms of transportation when there are so many co curriculum activities. Traffic is havoc at every school. Also education dept will disallow you to go elsewhere if your preferred school is miles away. But if you insist, then be prepared to do a lot of legwork and convincing. You also need to consult your child her choice. She must be happy there.
