Founders Day

The 22nd of February in the scouting calender is known as the Founders Day. For those who doesnt know, Founders Day means the day the founder of scouting movement, Lord Robert Baden Powell was born. Without him, there will be no scouting movement and the 8th Georgetown (South) will never exist today. Founders Days was formed to remember BP as he passed away on 8th of January 1941 and was burried at the Kenyan Hills. BP's death was a great loss to the scouting movement worldwide.

Tribute To A Lil Man

Well today was the last day of working for one the most dedicated teacher i have ever seen in my time, he has been in Penang Free School for about 31 years and 9months or roughly almost 32years. Indeed 32years is a very long time serving in PFS and is so happens that PFS was the 1st school he taught and the only school he have ever been in since being a teacher. Have u all guess who is he?? He is none other than Mr. Loh Hua Sin, our Senior Assistant of Administration. Some of u might recognize him through his shinning bald head. Lol.

To celebrate his retirement, there was a special assembly for him. Mr. Latif gave his speech, followed by the student representative Head Boy Yeoh Jit Wei and than the teachers representative Mrs. Ruby Mangalam Janet. From the assembly, I learned a few things about Mr. Loh.
