The Teachers' Day Celebration for Johor Bahru district level was held on Saturday, 26th May at Pusat Islam and I was one of the school's representatives who had to be there. (Someone had to do it.) Registration and breakfast took place between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m.

The hall was not filled to its maximum capacity maybe because of the wrong timing. The school holidays had already started and some people were already somewhere else. Luckily I met some people I knew and managed to sit beside a colleague.
The ceremony was started off with a performance which was a combination of poetry recitation cum pantomime with singing and the music of violin and flute in the background. It was very dramatic indeed which was a typical Malay presentation kind of thing.

After the routine of prayer recitation, speeches (Thank God they were quite short), reading of the teachers' oath (I read twice this year) and the singing of "Guru Malaysia" song, the event was continued with awards and certificates presentation.
