MY SECONDARY SCHOOL




SEKOLAH TUNKU MAHMOOD ISKANDAR
PARIT SAIDI, BATU PAHAT
(1972-1976)


I left my primary school at the end of 1971 with the new wisdom as 'secondary school' students. The school (which you had read the history above) is about 1.5 km from my house. Straight bitumin road without any challenge except need slightly more road safety concious.

The new challenge in my Form 1 was having a new rivals which i did not know at all. The students of STMI were the pool of students from surrounding primary schools within the area of Mukim 10 and Mukim 11 such as SK Seri Rejo Sari, SK Parit Kemang, SK Seri Timbul, SK Seri Pulih, SK Seri Kemajuan, SK Kampung Baru, SK Parit Kadir and SK Seri Perpat. The students were living as far as 15km from the school. Each school had its own 'second class HERO'. Why 2nd class? The first category of best students (very rare species for 'sekolah kampong') were normally had been picked up to go full resident school (boarding school) such as SAS, STAR, SDAR, KTK, SMPKA or RMC.



SEJARAH RINGKAS STMI


"Cetusan asal hendak mewujudkan sebuah sekolah menengah di Kampung Parit Saidi, telah bermula sejak beberapa tahun sebelum 1965. Ianya berpunca daripada kesusahan ibubapa yang pada setiap awal tahun terpaksa menghantar anak-anak mereka yang baru memasuki Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Rejo Sari yang jauhnya kira-kira 6 km dengan terpaksa menempuh jalan yang becak.


Satu Jawatankuasa penaja yang ditubuhkan oleh Pergerakan Pemuda UMNO Parit Saidi telah meminta kerjasama daripada kampung-kampung yang berhampiran. Jawatan yang dipengerusikan oleh Allahyarham En.Dasuki bin Kodali telah melantik beberapa orang ahli jawatankuasa mewakili kampung-kampung berhampiran. Tugas utama AJK ialah membuat permohonan dan mengusahakan satu tapak yang sesuai di Parit Saidi.

Dua orang adik-beradik Tuan Haji Kormin Haji Noor dan Encik Paat Haji Noor telah menawarkan sebidang tanah dengan harga yang berpatutan. Jawatankuasa telah memutuskan untuk berikhtiar mencari wang melalui pungutan derma dan malam amal.Permohonan yang dikemukakan kepada pihak Pejabat Pendidikan Batu Pahat telah diluluskan dengan peruntukan dua bilik darjah dengan status sebagai sekolah cawangan Seri Rejo Sari. AJK telah diarahkan menyediakan pelan tapak untuk di kemukakan ke Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri

Projek pembangunan ini tertangguh akibat tercetusnya Konfrantasi oleh Indonesia dan diteruskan sebaik sahaja Konfrantasi tamat pada awal 1965. Kementerian Pendidikan telah meluluskan peruntukan membina sebuah sekolah menengah. Pada awal tahun 1965 pelajar-pelajar terpaksa menumpang di dua buah sekolah kebangsaan iaitu SRK Parit Kemang dan SRK Kampung Baru. Pada 1 Februari 1968 nama sekolah ini telah ditukar nama daripada Sekolah Menengah Rendah Parit Saidi kepada Sekolah Menengah Tunku Mahmood Iskandar. Pada hari Jumaat, 25 September 1981, sekolah ini telah dirasmikan oleh YB Dato' Haji Suhaimi bin Dato' Kamarudin selaku Timbalan Menteri Pendidikan ketika itu"

Nama sekolah adalah diambil sempena dari nama Raja Muda Johor pada masa itu.

MY TOUR IN STMI : 1972-76

Since its opening in 1965, STMI only offered a secondary school studies up to Form 5. There were two streams or specialisations for the newly reporting Form One students, Industrial Arts or 'Perusahaan (P)' and Agricultural Science or 'Pertanian (T)'. Everybody must gone through these streams untuk SRP level. After the SRP examination, the students had only single choice for their Form 4 and 5 in this school, it was Arts Stream (Aliran Sastera). Other than the excellent students who got the offer to go to Boarding School, those who opted for Science Stream they have to go to Sekolah Dato Bentara Luar (SDBL), Batu Pahat. Or, if they obtained a good results and interested to apply, they could apply Technical School. At that time, Vocational School was established for the SRP holders who obtained 'unfavourable result' such as getting aggregate above A24 or Grade B.

Initially the Form One for my batch was divided into four classes, 3 classes for P (1P1, 1P2 and 1P3 and one T class (1T1). However, after some negotiation (to make it balance), 1P3 was converted into 1T2. I was in 1P1. That was the biggest intake of Form One since STMI was established (up to that year).


My Form One: 1972- Tingkatan 1P1:

All the Form One were initially in the afternoon session because insufficient classroom for Form 2-5 in the morning. However after the completion of new 2 story building, all the Form One changed to morning session. My class teacher was Cikgu Mohamed bin Sanip. He also taught me Seni Perusahaan (now, the name of this subject had been changed to 'Reka Cipta'). Cikgu Aishah bt Taib taught me BM and Sejarah (Cikgu Esah was very motherly character), My English teacher was Mr Teh Et Tang, Cik Fahariah Hamzah taught me Pengetahuan Islam, Cikgu Amar bin Hj Habib taught Ilmu Alam and Cik Habibah Ikhsan taught me Rampaian Sains.


Form Two: 1973- Tingkatan 2P1:

My class teacher was Cikgu Saim bin Selamat (BM) (almarhum) later he married to Cikgu Fahariah (my guru Agama in Form 1)- Cikgu Saim's was also neighbour to my parent in-law at Taman Broleh. My English teacher was Mr Johnson Gomez and Miss Vasantha K.Nair), Ilmu Alam (Cikgu Zakiah Shuib), Sejarah (Cikgu Aishah Taib), Pengetahuan A/Islam (Ust Omar HJ Salleh), Seni Perusahaan (Cikgu Mohamed Sanip) and Lukisan (Cikgu Hamzah Selak). My teacher for Ilmu Hisab Moden (Cikgu Habibah Ikhsan was very emotional type and highly favouratism- she would only focus or pay attention to top 5 students in the class), Rampaian Sains (Kadir Maidin -the teacher who makes me 'lost interest' in Science subject), anyway, I cant write here why, 'not good' to talk bad thing about somebody.


My 2P1 classroom in 1973


Form 3: 1974- Tingkatan 3P1:

My classteacher was Cikgu Zauliah Ramli (she also taught Hisab and Sains), English (En Zainal bin Kamsul- he liked to say "orang kampong betulllll" these words normally directed to those were making silly mistake) Seni Perusahaan (Cikgu Ahmad Dariri Kasim (new teacher), BM & I/Alam (Cikgu Saim Selamat), Sejarah (Cikgu Uiop Kassim -also new graduate teacher), Lukisan (Hamzah), Pengetahuan A/Islam (Ustaz Sulaiman Abdullah).


In 1974, this is my 3P1 classroom - when I visited STMI in 2010, this class is converted to be Galeri Sejarah.


This year, I sat for my 'Sijil Rendah Pelajaran (SRP)' examination. I obtained Grade A with 11 Aggregate. Overall position in Form 3 was No. 5. No 1 was Zalila bt Junid with A5, No 2 was Kamisan bin Sujak with A7, No 3 was Jainuddin bin Mohayat with A8 and No 4 was Abd Rahman Mokhtar with A10. My result was as follows:

  1. Bahasa Malaysia - C4
  2. Bahasa Inggeris - C3
  3. Sejarah (Tawarikh) - A2
  4. Ilmu Alam - A1
  5. Ilmu Hisab Moden - C3
  6. Rampaian Sains - C3
  7. Seni Perusahaan - C4
  8. Lukisan - A2

From two photos above, you can see, in 1974, for women at 15 to 17, not covering their 'aurat' was something normal. Even the woman teachers!!!


In Form 3 I started to get active in school co-curriculum. Besides continued as aScout Movement Member, I was also a Prefect, Librarian and Treasure for Persatuan Bahasa Malaysia.

After my 'SRP', I was offered to go to Form 4 Science Stream at Sekolah Dato Bentara Luar (SDBL). As i mentioned earlier, I did not like Science subject. I lost my interest in Science when I was in Form One and Two. Eventhough I obtained Credit 3 in my SRP, I refused to go to Science Stream.

The 4 top scorers in SRP Exam 1974 were offered to go to Boarding School; Zalila bt Junid went to Sek Men Seri Puteri, Jln Kolam Air, KL, Jainudin Mohayat and Kamisan Suja' -went to Sekolah Alam Shah, Cheras and Abd Rahman Mokhtar went to Sek Men Sains Johor, Kluang. I was in 5th position with A11 but not offered to any boarding school because I did not get distinction (A) for my Maths and Science subjects. Stay back to look after STMI....

All of the four above performed very successful in their SPM. Zalila went to UM for matriculation, Kamisan, Jainuddin and Rahman went to UTM Jalan Gurney. I met them in UTM, Kamisan was in the same Architecture course with me, Jainuddin did his degree in Electrical Engineering, and Rahman did his degree in Petroleum Engineering. Unfortunately, Rahman was having 'psycho' problem and dropped from the course in his second year (1979). Based on the conversation with 'trusted' friends, I 'think', Rahman was so ambitious to be a best student in his course, and his 'mental capability' could not catch and keep abreast with his need. I was informed that he situation still like that until today. Alas....

WHILE waiting my SRP result, I did work with the my Chinaman neighbour (Tee Ter @ Ah Ter) as a construction worker. My pay was RM5 per day. Ah Ter was normally get a sub-contracting jobs from the Malay contractor. Most of our work sites were in Pontian District. Some of the construction works that had my hand were 'pump well' at Klinik Parit Selangor, sea wall at bandar Pontian, Pasar Pekan Nanas, Tok Kong China at Kayu Ara Pasong and many more. Good experience working under the sun hotness!


Form 4: 1975- Tingkatan 4A (Aliran Sastera)

As I mentioned earlier, for the Form 4 in STMI we did not have choices, only Arts Stream. I received the offer to go for Science Stream at SDBL, Batu Pahat but refused to go. So, I retained in STMI. Leave me as the best student in the school then. Hahaha. We had 2 classes of Form 4 (A and B).

My classteacher and he also taught English and History was EncikUiop bin Kasim (his English class did not follow the syllabus. In order to improve our English proficiency he introduced English Literature, using story books title ' The Three Musketeers'....

This year also, we had the opportunity to participate in the Johore Scouts Jamboree at Kem Sekakap, Mersing. For the Scouts, Jamboree is a great thing and a proud to participate in it. In this jamboree, we met a lot of friends from various places. We performed various activities in two year (75/76) to raise our fund with the objective to participate in National Jamboree in Kuching in 1977. Some of the activities were film show at school padang, selling T-Shirt, opening food stalls etc. However, in 1977 I was in UTM, so unable to take part. Jamaludin Tamjis was lucky to have that opportunity. Admired with his story....he managed to have many adik angkat from Sarawak.

I would ogle at her cleavage. Eemm... what do you expect from 17 years old boy? Not sure either she intentionally did it or not. I am not sure what about my other friends thinking at that time. We never talked about this matter. Where is she now? I think she is retired. Hemmmm..I hope she do not read my blog....Maafkan saya, zahir dan batin CIKGU.

My teacher for subject 'Sivik' was Cikgu Md Yasin Kamari (almarhum). He was an orator, later he became fulltime politician, elected as a State Legislative Member of Johor (Parit Raja) and Member of Parliament (Seri Gading), appointed as Political Secretary to Minister of Judiciary and his highest achievement before his death (1991) was the Deputy Minister of Rural Development (1989). His body was rested at Masjid Pt Haji Ali. (Semoga Allah cucuri rahmat ke atas roh almarhum).

This year i represented my school in various sector of English Competition, such as Story Telling Competition at SMK Senggarang, Debate (SM Tun Aminah) Quiz at SMK Semerah (Champion for District Level)- BRAVO! (my other team members was Kamdani and Yasman) beat the high profile Malay Medium schools such as Sek Tun Aminah and SDBL.

This year, being a Head Prefect, I reduced a lot of my commitment in co-curriculum activities. I played inactive role in Library, elected as the President of Islamic Society and maintained active in Scout Movement. In fact, I obtained my 'Sijil Pengakap Raja' this year. The first batch of Pengakap Raja (King's Scouts) in our school. BRAVOOOO

Special notes


1. My Senilukis and Pengakap Teacher, Cikgu Hamzah Hj Selak was my closest teacher. His wife, Kak Amanah was also very nice. After I left my school until now, I maintain my relationship with him. Every Hari Raya i will make an attempt to visit his family (he is staying in Parit Kemang).

2. In my school activities, Boy Scouts was my first priority. I did not know why, this time my father keep silence when i decided to joing Scouts. May be, I am big enough to go for outing activities. I passed my Tenderfoot Class in Form 1 and my First Class in Form 2. My highest achievement in Scouts activities was 'Pengakap Raja' (King Scout). I passed the test in 1976.
As a Scout member you must memorize the "Ikrar Pengakap", "10 Undang-undang Pengakap" and "Riwayat Hidup Lord Baden Powell" (the founder of the Scouts Movement). He visited Tanah Melayu in 1934. (picture below are Lord Baden Powell, camping activities and 'King Scout Badge')

3. My best friend in Secondary School was Abdul Halim Sulaiman. His father was a religious teacher (on contract) in Brunei Darussalam. He was staying in Parit Kadir with his uncle. After SPM he went for Lower Six at SDBL and later he went to UKM for his degree. I met him first after my SPM was in Kuantan (sometimes 1985/86). He was teaching at ADABI School.
Later he quit teaching and joined Jabatan Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (JAINS). He is now one Pengetua Sek Men Agama Kuala Pilah, Johol.






Lord Baden Powell (Bapa Pengakap Dunia)
Masa kat sekolah dulu, riwayat hidup dia ni kena hafal tauuu.... ye la kalau tak hafal tak leh dapat Pingat Tenderfoot....(the lowest grade in Boy Scout)

Lagu Mat Tenderfoot
(Lagu ni, Cikgu Hamzah Hj Selak yang ajo leeee)

Mat Tenderfoot malas berkerja
Duduk dirumah nak makan saja
Dia bedal apa yang ada
Tinggi perut dari dada

Mak mati, pak pun bujang
Mat Tenderfoot pulang bertandang
Duduk di rumah tergolek terlentang
Orang malas mati terbongkang

Waiting for SPM result

Canteen keeper with two Faridahs

For so many years, the tuckshop/canteen in my school ran by 'Cikgu Sukardi Md Noor' (then a religious teacher) and his wife (Kak Idah). In early 1977, the Headmaster (Cikgu Rashidi) did not allow him to continue his operations. He approached (and coaxed) me to take over the canteen temporarily, while waiting for the permanent replacement.

I was quite close with my HM due to many reasons. First, I was the Head Prefect, second; I was the potential best student (for SPM) and also the most active student; and thirdly, during his young time he was teaching together with my uncle (Acik), Hj Razikan.

I did not know how to refuse his invitation. I did not have any experience in running any business. So, he provided the basic operating capital for the business, not in cash, but in good/junk food to sell such as tea, milk and sweets. The other food except hot/soft drink the business were based on commision. I got the supply of other food from various sources. The main menu; such as mee goreng, mee rebus, mee hun goreng or lontong, I got from the previous canteen operator (Cikgu Sukardi), the epok-epok supplied by Kak Amanah (wife to Cikgu Hamzah), my sister (Rahimah) also suppled some types of kueh.

In running the canteen, I was assisted by two Faridahs (Faridah Nurulhadi and Faridah Munafaat). Both were my classmate from Form One. I paid both of them for RM60/month.

Actually, I did get the profit from that business. My canteen was broken down by the thiefs twice. I lost some cash and items.




Jamaludin, me, Faridah Munafaat and Faridah Noralhadi


After getting my SPM result, I stopped my business and I heard, I was taken over by the old operator. Anyway, that 3 months exposed me with a lot of experience.


HARI GURU

Waktu di sekolah menengah, antara hari yang aku tunggu saban tahun ialah HARI GURU. Biasa murid sekolah ni suka hari CUTI UMUM. Aku tak suka cuti sekolah kerana, bilacuti aku kena pergi bagi makan nyamuk... kene ke kebun. Pagi-pagi kene menoreh, siap mesin getah dah dekat jam 12 tengahari. Kalau hujan, tak leh noreh kena tebas rumpun/semak (orang Jawa kata mancah).

Back to 'Hari Guru', Teachers Day was the day where I can show off my talent. During the Teachers Day, each class has to perform a presentation (on the stage). No classroom activities (study) for that day. The presentation can be a group song, poet, comedy, choir etc. I never missed to represent my class. My favourite performance was 'lawak jenaka'. My performance in 1975 was 'Tukang Jahit' and 1976 was 'Kedet Tentera'


Latest:

17 April 2010- received a message from Nurhuda binti Abu Hassan Mazli. She is the daughter to Almarhum Cikgu Hj Abu Hasan Mazli bin Abd Karim, my Science teacher in Form 5 (1976).

The thing start with, I typed his name to find his picture. I am now tracing all my former teachers for my blog. I found Nurhuda's name and message her to confirm either she is the daughter of almarhum. The answer is right. TQ Huda.

AFTER SPM


I sat my SPM in 1976 and scored Grade 1 with 16 Aggregate. Again, proudly I came up as a Best Student for that year. For your info, since my school (STMI) established in 1969, the the First Grader achiever only appeared in 1973 . And my Year (1976) produced the biggest number of 1st Grader, that was 6. Eurika!. Myself, Kamdani Salleh (my kampongmate and studymate), Yasman Tamsir, Ahmad Noh Jeni, Mohd Adil Shukor and Ngatijah Miskam. Before that, between 1-3 only.

(Note: Kamdani is now a teaching in my primary school (SK Seri Rejo Sari), Yasman (lost contact, he married to Fatimah Jamil also my classmate in Form 3), Ahmad Noh Jeni (grad UM, now Kedah BSN Manager), Mohd Adil and Ngatijah lost contact. However i found out from internet that Ngatijah is working as a teacher in SK Parit Raja (DG A32).

Those who qualified to further to Form Six went to Sek Dato Bentara Luar (SDBL). So, I also reported there for my Lower Six. However my stay in SDBL took only one month. Myself, Kamdani and Ahmad Noh were selected for Lower Six at Sekolah Alam Shah SAS), Cheras.



We will get back again in my topic in Alam Shah and Universiti of Technology, Malaysia.

Salam, Allahyarham cikgu Uiop B Kasim telah meninggal dunia pada 1998 ketika beliau menjadi pengetua Sek Men Seri Gombak. Beliau byk memberi dorongan dan galakan, hinggakan setiap bulan kene hantar report ujian bulanan. Cuma yang ralatnya, saya tidak dapat hantar report SPM untuk Allahyarham tgk. Semoga ruh Allahyarham di cucuri rahmat
