Updates* TV in the Canteen, Is It For Real??

It has been awhile since you people are updated on the happenings in Penang Free School. Here are a few of the recent happenings.

In the recent weekly asemblies, in the speech by HM Mr Hj Ramli Bin Din, he challenged the students to an extraordinary deal. In one week, if the students are able to keep the canteen clean and up to standard, he WILL install a 29inch television equip with Astro Channels. He jokingly said students will be able to watch CNN and Bloomberg (students was boo-ing and laughing), and also be able to watch football and Akademi Fantasia (cheers and thunderous applause from the students).

He also stated that he will not speak on issues concerning problematic students anymore (what previous HM's and Senior Assistant Mr Abdul Latif had done all time during assemblies) and will start to bring the school to a higher level. He says for years the school has tried to help in many ways to assist this problematic students and it is time for this to stop, as it is slowing down the school from progressing. His proposal was to ask the individual to be transferred out from the school, rather than waiting for the school to expel him.


This might be a bit late, but as the saying goes *better late than never*. Hence, I am here to wish all Sea Scouts which is having their PMR, SPM and STPM Trials Examination, Good Luck`!! Make the Troop proud.

Annual General Meeting 2006: Results

After a harsh and exciting moment, the 8th Georgetown South's Annual General Meeting has finally come to an end. It was a moment where new leaders are appointed and probationary leaders and their assistants are promoted. Nobody was demoted in this event. 08 online would like to congratulate the new batch of leaders and hope that they will show their undying commitment to the troop and contribute effort and sacrifice time to train the juniors to be better leaders in the future. Sad to say, our fellow ex-excos will be leaving the school after this year. The troop will always recognize those who had contributed to the troop in many ways and brought the troop as it is now. The newly appointed batch of leaders will be stated as followed.
