On June 28th 2016, Sekolah Kebangsaan Gong Pasir organised its annual ‘Temu Murni’ event to meet and greet the parents of the school’s students to discuss their academic and cognitive achievements. The event began at 10.00 am, where the first batch of early bird parents registered their attendance at the counter according to the student’s year and class. The registration went on without a hitch with more than 80% of parents attended the event throughout year 1 until 5.
The event started with the arrival of the honoured guest, Encik Mohd Azman B. Ali, LINUS officer representing Dungun District Education Officer and Prof Madya Ismail B. Hassan, Ketua Pusat Pengajian, Gugusan Pengurusan dan Perniagaan, UiTM Terengganu. Encik Ahmad B. Mohd Ali, as the headmaster of the school, delivered the opening speech followed by the speech by Mr Mohd Azman who officiated the event.
In his speech, he had mentioned about the overall aim of the SSM app, as the medium to lessen the communication gap between the school and the parents. It is also an approach taken to encourage an environmental friendly method of informing the student’s parents about the school activities or important notices, without wasting paper. Encik Mohd Azman B. Ali ended his speech by signing the ceremonial banner and officially launching the SSM app usage in the school.
As the first half of the program completed, it was time for Prof. Madya Ismail B. Hassan to deliver his motivational talk. He touched on many topics within his talk but what stood out the most was the importance of parental support towards the student.
He talked about the impact of the parent’s involvement in school related events such as the ‘Temu Murni’, to show their support towards their child’s hard earn achievements and in his words “make time for your kids because time is flying fast before we even have the chance to miss it”. Prof. Madya Ismail ended his talk with slight humour before the MC called on the PDD to give a token of appreciation from the school and the parents were dismissed to proceed with the Temu Murni program.
