Seminar Keibubapaan SRAI BBB 2008

The Parenting Seminar went quite well. The cooperation by the selected committee members were exemplary, and I felt privileged to be part of it.

In fact, at the final working committee’s meeting on Wednesday night, all members (parents and teachers) that were there participated and contributed. Some even without being asked of anything.

Basically no problems went unsolved. That was the way I saw it. The moment something came up, there’s always someone who came up with something to solve it.

Even during the gotong royong on Friday night, everything were pretty much on auto pilot. No bossing around needed. A case of many hands made light work.

Of course, there is still some post-seminar work to be done. Aaarghh😀

Oh pardon me, but there was ONE glitch. Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor or JAIS (the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department) didn’t bother to send even a single official representative from its Education Department to this Seminar, even though the school’s PTA has officially requested it. SRAI BBB is a JAIS’s school, under the Education Department. I guess that doesn’t mean a thing to JAIS.

You see, JAIS is this wonderful institution under the Selangor State Government that provides its SRAIs with basically only two things: great infrastructure such as minimum classroom buildings and teachers who are of salary scale that is much lower than their federal counterparts.

And most of the teachers are CONTRACT TEACHERS. Some of these contract teachers have been teaching for more than 10 years as contract teachers! The religious subject teachers work at a salary of around rm600 per month. Yes, rm600 per month during these days of high inflation in areas like Bandar Baru Bangi, with JAIS’s tithe (zakat) collection for 2007 amounting to around rm200million!

Even the water meter installed is still one that meant for a typical household when the school was still a small religious school back in 1982 with less than 200 students. The school now has more than 1,000 students! So now we can’t get enough water into the tanks of the school’s bathrooms because of the heavier usage. And the parents are crying foul that the bathrooms are not well taken care of. That the children are avoiding the bathrooms because the bathrooms are smelly and dirty. That the bathrooms are not cleaned frequently enough. That the bathrooms break down often enough.

But how can the bathrooms be cleaned well when there is not enough water in the first place!?

Thank you very much JAIS.

OK, back to the Seminar. What is “khayra ummah,” some of you may ask? It’s Arabic for “the best of community,” or “ummah terunggul.”

Thumbs up to all. Apologies for any shortcomings. See some 96 photos of the Seminar here. Related entries here, here, and here.

The Man With The golden Voice closed the Seminar with these:

Sampan kotak hilir mudik,
Dayung patah galah sebatang;
Ikhtiar tidak datang bergolek,
Akal tidak datang melayang.
 
Elok laku bekal dunia,
Elok budi bekal mati;
Elok rupa mainan mata,
Elok bahasa penambat hati.

 

Here are what came out in the news cum tabloid Sinar Harian today, with the resolutions of the seminar at the bottom.

Bekerjasama Bentuk Pemimpin Pelapis

BANDAR BARU BANGI – Golongan ibu bapa serta guru memainkan peranan penting dalam melahirkan dan membentuk generasi pewaris kepimpinan negara yang mempunyai jati diri serta disiplin tinggi

Golongan ini perlu mempersiapkan diri dari aspek keilmuan dalam menjalankan tanggungjawabnya sebagai pendidik dan pembimbing kepada anak-anak sebagai pembina tamadun ‘khayra ummah’ melalui generasi ‘ulul albab’ (berilmu pengetahuan).

Sehubungan itu, Persatuan Ibu Bapa dan Guru (PIBG) Sekolah Rendah Agama Integrasi (SRAI) Bandar Baru Bangi dengan kerjasama Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (ABIM) Negeri Selangor dan ABIM Daerah Bangi mengambil inisiatif mengadakan satu seminar keibubapaan di Dewan SRAI sekolah berkenaan di sini.

Jurucakap penganjur, selain dapat memperkukuhkan hubungan silaturahim antara ibu bapa dan guru, program berkenaan dapat membuka minda mereka tentang maklumat-maklumat akan cabaran semasa dalam mendidik anak-anak mereka di sini.

Selain itu menurutnya, penekanan dalam kemahirm komunikasi, masa, rumah tangga, kewangan, pendidikan dan seumpamanya yang menunjukkan contoh keluarga juga turut ditekan dan diberi pendedahan yang mapan.

Tambahnya lagi, dalam merealisasikan hasrat membina generasi tamadun khayra ummah yang diharapkan, adalah penting jika jalinan hubungan yang akrab dengan guru, PIBG, pengurusan sekolah dan ibu bapa dimantapkan.

Sehubungan itu, seminar sebegini perlu diadakan secara berterusan di semua sekolah agar golongan sasaran mendapat maklumat tentang persediaan yang perlu dalam membimbing anak mereka untuk menghadapi cabaran pada masa akan datang.
