Assalamualaikum and salam sejahtera!
Today marks a new year in the school calendar; children have started their school year and teachers are about to embark on yet another year of teaching.
In Sekolah Rendah Piasau-Piasau this is no different. The day started as usual, with the pupils assembled at the assembly area as soon as the first bell rang. They and the teachers and staff stood and sang the National Anthem. The Headmistress gave her annual start-of-the-year speech and advised the pupils to up the ante in their studies for the new year.
This year, Sekolah Rendah Piasau-Piasau has undergone some changes. Most notably, in terms of teaching manpower (or womanpower also, in this case), as the school bid farewell to two teachers, Cikgu Michael Tanggiling, who had taught here for around 6 years and has moved on to Sekolah Rendah Batu Apoi; and Cikgu Narul Iswady, who has moved to Sekolah Rendah Beribi-Telanai in the Brunei-Muara District and Cikgu Elmo Ramano, who has moved on to Sekolah Rendah Bukit Udal in the Tutong district. The school wishes these teachers all the best in their future endeavours. The school, however, wishes to welcome 2 new teachers. First, Cikgu Layun binti Ulat, who moved here from Sekolah Rendah Negalang, and Cikgu Fazri bin Puteh, from Sekolah Rendah Sultan Hassan Bangar. It is hoped that these new faces will give their best to our school.
There are also some changes in the number of pupils, as 3 have moved to Sekolah Persediaan Arab. 2 pupils, however have moved into the school, 2 brothers, Joel and Ezra Chin, who happens to be sons of new teacher, Cikgu Layun. They are in Years 3 and 5 respectively. Below are some pictures from the first day of the new school year.
