As I am no longer living and working in Malaysia, updating this site has become impossible.  There will therefore be a number of changes made over the next couple of weeks.

Please bear with me and hopefully they will be changes for the better.

Dear Visitor,

Again at the begginning of September of this year we suffered a hacking attack, unfortuanately as I am without Internet at the moment, it took me a week or so to notice.

The site software has been updated and things should be working normally again.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

We are gradually rebuilding the site within a newer more secure framework. It make take some weeks before the site is fully complete.

We ask you to be patient with the update process and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

A few teachers in Negri Sembilan are steadily improving their skills in the teaching of mathematics and science in English.

“This is a marked improvement because at first they were very quiet. Now, they are more confident when speaking English in class,” said Mark Baldwin, who is a senior trainer with CfBT Education Malaysia, a UK-based non-profit provider of education and training services.

IT WAS to be class as usual for the pupils of SJK(T) Ladang Bradwall near Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan, but their day was spiced up recently by the presence of a surprise visitor.

Excitedly, the pupils showed the guest, British High Commissioner Boyd McCleary, how they had improved their command of English.
