Curriculum Vitae

Salam,

Bertemu kembali! Wah, mood mengupdate blog memang banyak di saat-saat paling sibuk dalam hidup sebagai seorang Pelajar Tahun 3 ini. Kenapa ye? Escapism from doing actual work? Erk~ :D

Baru sahaja selesai menyiapkan CV/Resume untuk dihantar kepada SIIU pagi tadi (ye, saya seorang yang suka melengahkan benda-benda macam ni). Malam tadi sempat tengok file lama dalam laptop ni, terjumpa CV yang dibuat pada tahun 2006 sebelum kemasukan ke UTP. Waktu tu dah terlepas mengisi borang online application, maka pihak ESU minta ana menyediakan CV ringkas untuk difaks kepada mereka.

Ringkas ke? Well, you can be a judge of that yourself. Seolah-olah mengimbau kembali memori zaman sekolah di UK bila ana baca semula CV yang ntahpape tu. Ana akan sertakan di sini sebahagian dari ayat-ayat panjang dalam CV tersebut ;P

Personal Information

I am a very hard-working student with good achievements in my studies. I am very particular with anything I am working on and always make sure that it is finished up to a high standard. It could be said that I am quite a perfectionist. I also have very good leadership skills and can handle most situations pretty well. I was chosen as student of the year consecutively for the year 2004 and 2005.

My particular interest would be in the area of science as it explains the reasoning behind life and the matters surrounding it. It is hope that I could further my studies in this field and contribute something to the society.

I also enjoy reading very much in as it opens up the windows to the outside world leading to a variety of great knowledge available around us. In addition to that, my hobbies include collecting stamps and coins from different countries all over the world. This has given me the opportunities to learn more about these countries through their different cultures and customs.

Bila baca perenggan Personal Information tu, terasa "Wow, pandainya goreng ayat dulu2 tu". Minta maaf la, banyak ayat promote diri di situ. Nasib baik berjaya masuk UTP kan..alhamdulillah.

Extra-Curricular Activities

I have always been a responsible person since I was in primary school being a school prefect for four years in the year 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2002. During my secondary education at Manchester Academy, I was successful in my application to become a school ambassador at the end of Year 9 in 2004. I have since represented the school in many important events as well as acting as an escort for many VIPs. Some of my duties and roles involved being an usher at Parents’ Evenings, organising the registration for parents and students during school events, escorting visitors around the school, escorting Year 6 students on Induction Day and many more responsibilities. Being an ambassador has taught me a lot of things through experience which I cannot gain anywhere else. I feel a certain loyalty to the school when I am representing myself as part of the school to parents and other outside contacts.

At Manchester Academy, I have taken part in the sponsored events such as the one run by the Spanish Department to send school equipments to Venezuela. I have also supported staff in their efforts to raise money for charity events, for example, the earthquake in India and tsunami in Indonesia. I was also involved in raising-money towards the humanitarian aid for the Palestinians. For the last three years I have donated cans for the Senior Citizens’ Christmas parcels which is an effort to strengthen the relationship between the school and the community.

I have attended the ‘Central Manchester Aimhigher Conference’ which is an introduction to the world of work assisting the Year 10 and Year 11 Students in deciding their next step in the path towards their chosen careers. I have also taken part in events organised by the University of Manchester, which have involved college talks, mock interviews, self-research programmes and attending lectures in the university’s medical department.

In April 2006, I have been chosen to represent and lead the school team for ‘Chemquiz’ organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry in association with the Manchester Metropolitan University. The quiz was attended by about 40 schools from around the Greater Manchester.

Panjangnya~ Nasib baik la tak buat macam tu dah utk CV for internship ni. Kalau tak, memang semestinya lebih 4 muka surat. Tak perlu baca kalau tak sanggup. This is for my own amusement anyway. Simpan kat sini, nanti dh 'tua2' nak baca semula boleh la kan. Seronok zaman aktif-aktif di sekolah dulu! Walaupun sekolah di UK tiada kelab, badan beruniform, program, events dan sebagainya seperti di Malaysia...terasa bernasib baik juga la sebab dapat pendedahan dari sudut yang berbeza.

Employment History
Date: 13/06/2005 to 17/06/2005
Company: St Luke’s CE Primary School, Manchester, UK
Job Title: Classroom Assistant
Supervisor: Mrs Pauline H Palmer
Position: Foundation Stage/KS1 Co-ordinator

As part of the education’s curriculum requirement, I had a Work Experience Placement towards the end of Year 10 in 2005. I applied for the position of classroom assistant at St Luke’s CE Primary School and was accepted as the classroom assistant for the Year 2 Class. I was pleased to get this opportunity as I know it could help me greatly with my communication skills, both with those younger and older than myself.

My main duties involved preparing breakfast for the students attending the Breakfast Club in the morning, assisting the class teacher with the lessons planned for the day, arranging the class, creating a new filing system for the books, managing the pupils during playtime and also handling small groups of pupils in certain subjects. I soon learnt that having the day plan ahead is very important as the teachers would be able to prepare any equipments or materials needed in advance. Health and safety also plays a big part in a primary school such as this and it taught me to be more careful, especially with anything concerning the pupils.

At the beginning of my one-week placement, I felt that I was thrown in at the deep end and had to learn the class procedures very quickly. I may have felt this way because I was quite shy at first. Soon, I gained confidence as all members of the school, including my supervisor and the headmistress, were very supportive. This experience has improved my communication skills greatly and taught me the meaning of responsibility. Even though I am not planning to work in the primary teaching profession, it is the experience gained that is of the greater value. My supervisor was very pleased at the way in which I adapted to this ‘world of work’ experience and I received a very good report from the school (please refer to the ‘Employer’s Report’ attached).

This is what I like best about the education system over there! Sebagaimana kita di level universiti ada latihan industri/praktikal, begitu juga kami di sana. Sesi 'Work Experience Training' selama 2 minggu (tapi sekolah ana buat seminggu je sebab tak cukup masa) dalam semester persekolahan (bukan waktu cuti ye) memberi cukup banyak pengalaman baru yang semestinya tidak mungkin didapati dari kelas.

Semoga ana juga bakal melalui pengalaman yang sama semasa 32 minggu tempoh internship nanti. Doakan segalanya ya!

InsyaAllah lepas ni mungkin ana akan cuba publishkan entries yang banyak dalam draft tu.

Wassalamu'alaikum wrm wbt
