    AFAIK,USJ/SJ schools are OK,due to the fact most parents are educated.Maybe some schools got not so good ratings as they had Remove Class,thus spoilt their name.Like me all parents are also concern our child well beings to make sure they are well feed,sleep and study.

    Which secondary school got the BEST CO-CURRICULUM ACTIVITIES ?

    I am looking for a school that really play sports, do their clubs activities, uniform units etc FOR REAL ... and not the bullshit lip-service half-hearted co-curriculum currently practised in LH ... I got a shock when my boy told me that they have never done any track and field events like running, long jump. triple jump, high jump. discus, javelin, shot putt or even hurdles in LH .... OMG !!!!

    All they do is basketball, ping-pong and badminton ... all indoors, the school is damn scared of the SUN and smell of grass !!!!!!

    I told my wife the school is producing cohorts of "fat pondans" out of the boys ...
    I prefer "IN-DOOR". My daughter in Subang Utama... Playing VOLLEYBALL... now she is black like charcoal.. as practice under "SHADY TREE" - according to her. School population very low, So, she take part in most of the running, hi jump... 1st time in her life, get to TRY EVERYTHING.. compare to LICK HUNG only by-selection.

    However, NO COACH, NO Trainer. Seniors teach Juniors. She and friend just surf U TUBE and try to learn... Then Go for MSD, she say 1st 2 match like ZERO score... How to win against other schools with COACH?

    Is there any fixed rules that if your kid from certain SJKC will go to certain Sekolah Menengah?
    What are the criteria to determine which Sekolah Menengah to go by MOE? by house address or by result?
    Maybe u should check which school teach MATHS & SCIENCE in English? Coz some school is doing in BM only.

    Ya, you are right , I think only SMK Subang Utama and SMK seafield teach MATHs & SCIENCE in English . So far my girl (form 2) study in SMK seafield. They speak English in the school and have a lot have school activites and the school teacher are very resposible . I can view My girl result (Seafield) from saps ibu bapa but I see nothing from Lick Hung.

    The first term when we entered the technical school, all the Chinese still very motivated. All 7 of us managed to score top of the class. Then nightmare started when our class teacher retired and change new one. I must say this one is typical racist - he failed all 7 of us in BM paper thus seeing all 7 of us go down to the middle. I cannot accept the fact that all 7 of us failed BM papers all the terms for both Form 4 and Form 5. This has greatly affect my motivation to study hard b'coz no matter how hard you study, you will never be able to climb to the top.

    On the other hand, our math teacher has to teach the basic again to those student who are weak in mathematic. As a result, the teacher was unable to complete the entire syllabus and has to rush through the last few chapter.

    Luckily, I have achieved a good career path after graduate despite the failure.

    Hence, I am of the opinion that parent should carefully select the right school with right attitude of learning. This is not kiasu or kiasi but just the external force would definitely mold someone.
    totally agree with you. that' s reason I wanted to know which one is better.

    May I know which address are you using to enrol your kid in this school? because we have bought a house in Putra Heights. Not sure which secondary school will be sending by government if we are staying in Putra Heights. Anyone has any idea?

    Hi, jan, can share your dotter's experience on how she and her classmates deal with no teachers issues?

    I have 2 friends whose elder children were in cluster school, the youngest were sent to Chinese Independent school.

    My children didn't have problem with teacher absent from class, their problems were teachers went into class but either not teaching or incompetent to teach. Students skipping schools are common, my son found a creative way to handle this problem. He would ponteng from his class and attend whichever class that has good teacher teaching. A number of students also did the same. For my youngest child, this is method doesn't work well as there are just too many subjects to "ponteng"! This lead me to seriously consider transferring her out from SMK! I asked myself, why am I clinging on to SMK!

    If you don't mind sharing, why are you 'clinging' on to smk?

    My son last yr has been skipping school since SPM start because teachers not always around,meaning also 1 month.SMKSU actually is not a bad school as the teachers are very multi racial.Today some teachers organise a trip to PWTC for a Taiwan ed fair ,so no teachers. Dotter told me if no teachers around,the good ones do some tuition homework,some sleeping,some order Domino or Mc to eat����.One thing the children are very multi racial and they can connect easily which i like.

    The common path for them (Chinese students from middle-class families in USJ/SJ who studied in SMK) are :
    - Pre-U in the private college
    - Degree studies in private university locally or abroad.

    The challenge is there are thousands of such “product” every year with varying degree of quality and majority are not the assets that top-notch employers are looking for.

    Getting a degree is easy , the challenge comes after the degree.

    I can't agree more. First thing potential employers are watching out for is a candidate who speaks and writes in fluent English, with the proper paper qualifications but of course, yes.

    Students nowadays (both secondary and tertiary) waste hell a lot of time on social media and IT gadgets. The group of students I mentioned in post# 27 don’t really know their advantage and wasted their precious advantage. This advantage does not come free, it is the result from the hard-earned money of their parents.

    The advantage they have is – they don’t have the financial burden to take care of family.. This is a very expensive and rare advantage during our time and in a great extent the lack of this advantage had blocked the choices and opportunities we had during the tough time.

    It is not just the poor command of the business languages, it is more on their attitude, self-expectation and long-term direction. As they are not bounded by any commitment, they seriously lack the essential quality and right attitude to do the right things. Most are spending time just to do things, they don’t have the critical thinking skills to do things better for their employer and for themselves.

    This phenomenon is not limited to local graduates. I have met a graduate from a top 10 UK university during his internship whom I wish to ask him to leave before end of the 1st week.

    +1. I think only the kids from the poor family know how to appreciate on their parent hard earned money.
