PFS 74th Annual Sports Day Report

Penang Free School 74th Annual Sports Day has been a success thanks to the teachers and students which organise or help directly or indirectly. As early as 7am we could see students and house teachers at the school field decorating their tents. The tent which i find most attractive was Pinhorn and Cheeseman (thanks the scouting skills and camp banners). Even the form6 students which was having their Muet exam on the same day was down there helping out.

Lets Talk

Ahoy mates, there will be a General Meeting held this Saturday before the Sports Day. The meeting is aimed to discuss certain matters and resolve problems concerning the Troop. Furthermore, it is meant to improve the condition of the Troop. This are some of the topics that will be discuss. Topics such as the survival of the Troop, future plannings and upcoming activities, discuss ways to improve the condition of the Troop, fix the image of the Troop to the public, changing the mindset on how scouting is now to the mindset on the real path of scouting which is gaining knowledge and learn to socialise and make new friends, etc etc.

The Fall of One Empire Leads to The Rise Of The New Empire

Huh?? Whats does the title means?? Its just a title just to catch ur attention thats all. Just writing this to inform u guys on the new Principal of Penang Free School. Woohoo~ Lets celebrate, new HM at last. The outgoing HM, Mr Haji Mohd Yusof bin Omar has been transfered to SMK Sg Acheh after serving in PFS for about 1 year 7 months only. This is some information i have obtained from his farewell speech. Penang Free School is the 12th school he has served in total of 27 years of teaching. He claims he has visited over 200 schools in Malaysia, which is a great big deal for him. When he first stepped into PFS, in his opening speech, he said he will be in this school for not long and its true, as he has left already. Every school he has been, he said he has always stressed that self discipline is very important.
