Disclaimer: This is not to slight those who didn’t get straight As in this year UPSR. You are achievers as well. This is not the end. This is just the beginning. Yours truly’s nephew and niece scored 2 As, 3 Bs and 4 As and 1 C respectively – SRK.
UPSR results were out yesterday and for those who listened to THR Raaga or Minnal FM this morning would have heard students from SJKT Simpang Lima Klang talking about their achievements.
So, what’s so special about SJKT Simpang Lima?
Read on to find out.
A Tamil school, in Klang SJKT Simpang Lima, became the crown of the jewel
SJKT Simpang Lima became the best school in Selangor for UPSR achievement for 2015.
7A – 49 Students
6A – 39 Students
5A – 32 Students
4A – 20 Students
This was possible due to the effort of teachers of SJKT Simpang Lima and the cooperation of the pupils’ parents. Although the Malaysian education system has much to be desired and is not the surefire way to gauge a child’s ingenuity, but the feat of SJKT Simpang Lima deserves praise and admiration.
SJKT Simpang Lima not feted by major dailies
As usual, SJKT Simpang Lima making headway as the best Tamil school in Malaysia didn’t grace the headlines of major dailies. Even independent news portals like MalaysiaKini, The Malaysian Insider and Free Malaysia Today didn’t find this as worth a news. Sex blogger Alvin Tan reopening his Facebook page is worthy news. The only news portal that carried this news is greenhorn news portal The Rakyat Post.
Even with this kind of dismissal and spurn has become a norm, it doesn’t dampen the spirits of Tamil schools. Read about the silent revolution in Tamil schools here.
If we don’t put effort to know the feats of Tamil schools, who else will?
