Ms. Noraishah informed teachers that it is not compulsory to conduct extra classes this year for both PMR and SPM unless there is failure in the class. Ms. Noraishah reminded teachers to inform students to buy NILAM book specifically for English that will cost RM1.60 per unit. Ms. Noraishah informed teachers to remind their students not to continue in the NILAM books that they had used last year. However, if nothing has been written on it, they can still use the last years book. Ms. Noraishah informed teachers to encourage the students to read more to build up their vocabulary and to gear them for NILAM competition. Ms. Noraishah informed that starting from this year, there are no rules to the minimum number of pages that students must read in order write in their NILAM book. Ms. Noraishah suggested that teachers kill two birds with one stone by asking students to read literature texts from their English literature textbook. This is to strengthen their understanding of the text and at the same time to prepare them for NILAM competition this year. Ms. Noraishah reminded teachers to include this NILAM programme as part of their lesson by setting suitable task when bringing them to the library. Ms. Noraishah reminded teachers that when writing in the record books, instead of simply stating NILAM programme, teachers should be more specific by stating the objective for the lesson which can include vocabulary aspect and so forth. Ms. Noraishah suggested that teachers collect money and purchase NILAM books in bulk for students from SEJAYA school koperasi and distribute them in class rather than asking the students to buy on their own. This is to ensure that all students possess NILAM books. Ms. Noraishah reminded teachers to bring their classes to the library for one period once a week for NILAM purpose. Ms. Noraishah informed that she is aware that teachers of English are insufficient to meet demands of the classes that need to be taught. She advised teachers to be patient. Panel Management
