SARIKEI : SMK St An­thony here is em­bark­ing on a pro­gramme to pro­duce stu­dents who can ex­cel in both aca­demics and co-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

Un­der the pro­gramme, the school is al­lo­cat­ing time for ad­di­tional classes for stu­dents who will be sit­ting for pub­lic ex­am­i­na­tions in a par­tic­u­lar year apart from or­gan­is­ing mo­ti­va­tion pro­grammes and ex­cel­lence work­shop, its prin­ci­pal Vin­cent Liong said.

Teach­ers will also have to ad­just their style of teach­ing to suit the needs of their stu­dents, he added.

Ac­cord­ing to Liong, this year alone the school has al­ready or­gan­ised 30 work­shops to help pre­pare its Forms 3, 5 and Up­per 6 stu­dents for their PT3, SPM and STPM ex­am­i­na­tions re­spec­tively.

He added that par­ents, through the Par­ent-Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion (PTA) were also play­ing their part to en­sure the school main­tain its ex­cel­lent record in ev­ery field.

He cited the or­gan­is­ing of a Hari Per­ma­u­fakatan Ibu Bapa at the school last Fri­day which he of­fi­ci­ated at.

“The pro­gramme, or­gan­ised twice a year is meant for the teach­ers to dis­cuss with par­ents the per­for­mance of their chil­dren and at the same time find ways to ad­dress their short­com­ings or weak­nesses,” he ex­plained.

On the co-cur­ricu­lum, Liong said that the school ac­corded due at­ten­tion in that as­pect as it could im­part lead­er­ship skills and so­cial val­ues to the stu­dents.

To pro­vide more op­tions for the stu­dents to in­dulge in cocur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, the school planned to re­ac­ti­vate the cul­tural dance group; 24 drum group; Lion Dance group and Chi­nese Clas­si­cal group, he added.

The school’s PTA chair­per­son Mau­reen Chua who is also the pro­gramme or­gan­is­ing chair­per­son, called on the par­ents to give their full co-op­er­a­tion to the teach­ers in or­der to achieve their ob­jec­tives.

“The ul­ti­mate pur­pose of Hari Per­ma­u­fakatan is to pro­vide a plat­form for teach­ers and par­ents to as­sess the per­for­mance of their chil­dren and look into ways to ad­dress their weak­nesses,” she re­it­er­ated.

About 700 par­ents turned up to dis­cuss the per­for­mance of their chil­dren with the teach­ers.
