The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.
One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He
argued, 'What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best
option in life was to become a teacher?'
He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers:
'Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.'
To stress his point he said to another guest;
'You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?'
Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, 'You
want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, then began...)
'Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make a C+ feel like the Tan Sri Medal of Honor.
I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents
can't make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.
You want to know what I make?' (She paused again and looked at each and
every person at the table.)
''I make kids wonder.
I make them question.
I make them apologize and mean it.
I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
I teach them to write and then I make them write. *Keyboarding isn't
I make them read, read, read.
I make them show all their work in math. *They use their God given
brain, not the man-made calculator.
I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to
know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.
I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.
I make my students stand, placing their hand over their heart to say
the Pledge of Love to the Jalur Gemilang, The country that we love so much.
Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were
given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.'
(Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)
'Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing
money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention
because they *are ignorant... You want to know what I make?
I MAKE A DIFFERENCE . What do you make Mr. CEO?'
His jaw dropped, he went silent.
THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY TEACHER YOU KNOW.

Dear Headmaster, Mr Liew:
First of all, would like to thank the PIBG and school for organizing a talk on "Di Zi Kui/弟子规" last Saturday in school by inviting a famous and creditable speaker from oversea to give the talk. The talk was really meaningful and interesting, we enjoyed and learned.
Glad that the school sees the importance of teaching and instilling the value of "Di Zi Kui" in the students. The students have learned and benefited from such teaching. Personally, I can see that my son has learned and practiced the "Di Zi Kui" by him giving an ang pow with money to his 70 years old grandmother during her recent birthday, this is first time he did that without being told. He used to be very 'stingy' about his pocket money. I take that it was a sign that he shown his respect and care to the old folks of which the teaching of "Di Zi Kui" has emphasized. Along way, there are little good things that he did to the people around him.
My family is happy that my son is exposing to the teaching of "Di Zi Kui" and this teaching that he learned will make him a better person in life.
On the other hand, I also wish to thank my son's class teacher (5J) , Ms 徐真治. She is a very good, dedicated, caring, loving and patient teacher. She has been using encouraging and loving words to the students, made them felt that they were being cared and loved by the teacher. She also rewarding the students with small gifts, candies and cookies etc (using her own monies) to motivate them to study better/improve in their studies. My son was very much encouraged and motivated by her teaching. He feels sad knowing that she will be retiring Mac next year. No doubt at all, he will always treasure the knowledge that he has gained and the good memory he had with her and we also appreciated her as well.
Lastly, my family glad that my son study in Hin Hua school. Once again thank you to all parties that have make Hin Hua school a wonderful place to study.
Ms F.M Lim
