Yesterday I and a few other teachers went with the librarians on a visit to the Taman Herba Negeri Perak. This is one of a few library activities that will be carried out to fulfil certain requirements for the management of the resource centre.
I was advised by the BTPN officers who came for the state level resource centre judging to have at least 5 activities for the librarians and if possible involve students involved from other committees like the prefects, PEERS and cooperative members. The purpose of such activities is to help expose the students to more educational resources and to help provide learning experiences for them. Previously I had only carried out one activity for the librarians and that was the visit to Universiti Teknology Petronas.
In the coming weeks the following activities will be carried out:
25th June:
Visit to the Guava Farm for the librarians in the afternoon (Teachers in charge: Miss Cheah, Miss Ng, Puan Asiah, Tn Haji Ahmad Hasnin). Other resource centre teachers who are interested to go for the visit, please contact Miss Cheah before the 22nd of June.
30th June:
Workshop for creating a website for librarians and prefects (in the afternoon)
2nd of July:
Talk on Information Literacy and Multimedia Resource for Form 4 students in the afternoon (Miss Cheah and Mr Daniel)
8th July:
Visit to Bahagian Teknologi Pendidikan Negeri Perak in Ipoh (Teachers involved: Miss Cheah, Puan Norma, Puan Norhafizah, Encik Daniel)
15th July:
Vertical File and Classification workshop for resource centre teachers and librarians (Teacher in charge: Ustazah Roslina)
23rd July:
Visit to Cameron Highlands for the class and students with the best readership in the NILAM programme (Teachers in charge: En Rosfarizan, Puan Rosnani)
27 - 31 July 2009
