I don’t learn about you, however I used to dread faculty.
Nonetheless, there’s a faculty in Penang that makes studying so satisfying that its college students sit up for attending courses on daily basis. Some college students even threatened their dad and mom they’d run away from house in the event that they miss any of the college actions!
And it’s all because of the college principal. Who is that this legend, you may ask?
He’s S. Sangga, a 57-year-old headmaster at SJK(T) Sungai Ara, Penang. In response to The Star, the school started adopting the fun learning approach since Sangga was transferred to the school in 2011.
A few floors in the school had been painted with games like snakes and ladders, as well as teng teng. Not only that, there are designated reading corners as well as computers set up just for the students to discover and learn about new things!
Since then, the students have been arriving extra early at 6:30am just to have some fun before classes start at 7:40am!
If you think that’s all, you’re wrong.
Mr Sangga is an advocate for environmental protection and preservation. The school takes the students for walks in the surrounding area every Friday, and they’ll take them to collect garbage in selected areas every Saturday. The students have since become responsible “anti-trash heroes” by making a stand for our environment (and by choice).
The school has also banned the use of plastic, as well as fast food and junk food. Not only do the students practice this at school, but they proceed to take their knowledge home to educate their family!
Sadly, Mr Sangga will be retiring in three years, and he hopes that the students and teachers would continue their practice.
Netizens have left positive comments for this headmaster, complimenting how much of a difference he has made in the students’ lives.
Big respect for Mr Sangga for being a dedicated educator. A legend like him should be celebrated and followed!
