    SK Seafield USJ2 - Jadual Aktiviti Kokurikulum 2009

    Err buddies...2 of little Orchis(Son/Daughter) are attending Tingkatan 1 at this school...
    The 1st week of afternoon class session...filled with the usual start of the school hoo-haas...
    have passed...without much untoward incidents...

    Today...BOTH of them came back with the "Jadual Activiti Kokurikulum 2009"...
    that has made Orchi confused...since late this afternoon...

    Beginning from this n all Saturdays...

    BOTH of them have to be at school from 7:45am to 10:00am...
    to participate in activities of "Badan Beruniform"...

    Beginning from the next Monday...to Friday of each schooling weeks.

    BOTH of them has to be at school from 8:00am to 9:00am...
    n from 9:00am to 10:30am...respectively on 2 or 3 different days of the week...
    to participate in the relevant activities which they have each chosen...
    differently between...
    "1. Rumah Sukan"..."2. Badan Beruniform"..."3. Kelab" n "4. Persatuan"...

    Simply because they each chose 4 different activities that are said to be...
    "Compulsory" for the "Kokurikulum" activities...

    On those days...they would have to come back home to take their showers...
    meals...get dressed up...before being sent back to the school for their
    daily class sessions...in the afternoon...beginning from 1:10pm...

    By the time they BOTH get home...around 19:15pm...they would have
    to swallow their meals...take their showers...get dressed up...
    before being sent for tuition classes...
    2 or 3 times per week in the evening...

    Where would they get the time remaining...to study...or do their home works...
    on EACH schooling days...??????

    Orchi works...8:30am to 18:00pm on EACH working days...
    including Saturdays...n many a times Orchi needs to travel outstations.
    Wifey works...9:00am to 21:30pm on EACH working days...
    including Saturdays.

    What is going on...with the other SK schools in other parts of USJ n Subang Jaya...???
    How do they juggle with their "Kokurikulum" activities...???

    Any comments from parents with secondary school going
    childrens......are much appreciated...TQ.

    4 different activities COMPULSORY is a wee bit too much... the best would still be 2 i.e. 1 sports activities or club (Interact Club maybe or Boy Scouts Movement) plus 1 hobby like Computer Club, that would already take all their time....

    Orchi, go speak to the headmaster lah, reason out the COMPULSORY thingy... so the two little Orchis will have some breathing space to spend at home with Papa and Mama Orchi!

    last time we had 2 compulsory, take cloths to school and after the activities, just shower at school and then go to library to wait for school starts.

    4 is too much, persatuan, kelab, badan beruniform should be classed as one, Persatuan Bulan Sabit is a persatuan and also a badan beruniform.

    Pls note that Sukan as an activity only last till sports day which is usually in March/April. The other activities are made compulsory and grades are given, two of which are held on alternate weeks.

    My daughter chose two activities just because they fall on the day as they are conducted on alternate weeks not because she liked it but because she did not want to spent all her time in school!

    Hi Orchi, I'm not a parent but I share my opinion as an ex-student.

    Its either they sit in boring classroom or they participate in co-curricular activities. I would prefer the latter to the former.

    The studies in a Malaysian school classroom isn't very beneficial anyway, and less if compared to private schools, so why not see the good things your children will get from this?

    My children submit the forms but skip the events when timing is inconvenient. Along the course of the year, many do the same thing.

    Intersting topic when comes to education......

    If you don't mind me asking what do they do at these "Computer Club"?

    Do they get taught to utilise Ms Word, Publisher, Excel to produce fancy documents for their school assignments? Or even learn computer animation to develop interesting and fun computer games?

    One day, either me or my wife will have to stop work and take care of the kids

    Why not full day school and activities and then let the kids off on sat/sun for TVs and with family?

    i really enjoyed my curricular activties during high school though i dont remember it being cumpolsory. but that was 15 years back . But it is true that if you make it compulsory (4 activities!) with the tuition and everything, by end of the day, the child wouldnt even have time for homework or rest and the sad thing is if they wouldnt even enjoy it .

    One of my friend told me that when she tried to talk to the school head regarding the matter, the school head just said "you yourself make the choice to enrol in this school, it is your choice. If you are not happy, you can apply to transfer your kids to other school".
