PULSATING ACS 2013

“KE ARAH PSS CEMERLANG”

Jadikan sebagai Misi Bersama

TERCAPAI JUA IMPIAN KITA!

TERBINALAH BILIK TAYANGAN

Tahun 2013 merupakan tahun yang ’Bertuah’ kepada semua warga SMK Methodist (ACS), Seremban kerana pada tahun ini terbinalah sebuah bilik tayangan yang selama ini diimpikan. Bak kata orang ’Mimpi Menjadi Kenyataan’.Dengan kesungguhan pihak pengurusan yang mengambil inisiatif dalam perkhidmatan Pusat Sumber Sekolah (PSS), kini bilik tayangan dalam struktur pembinaan. Diharapkan dengan pembinaaan bilik tayangan ini, proses pengajaran dan pembelajran di sekolah ini semakin bertambah baik dari semasa ke semasa demi mencapai visi dan misi pendidikan. Terima kasih kami warga ACS kepada Pengetua Cemerlang, En. Thong Kok Chaw selaku penasihat PSS dan tidak dilupakan juga kepada Pn. Chuan Teik Mei selaku Pengerusi PSS yang berusaha ke arah terbinanya bilik tayangan.

              

Sementara itu, aktiviti kemuncak iaitu ’Minggu Pusat Sumber Sekolah’ yang bertemakan ’PSS Menjana Minda’ telah diadakan pada 17 – 21hb. Jun 2013. Minggu PSS ini telah dilancarkan oleh pengetua sekolah semasa perhimpunan rasmi dengan memukul gong.

                                    

Pada minggu ini pelbagai aktiviti dijalankan seperti persaraan dan pelantikan pengawas perpustakaan, pengawas perpustakaan cemerlang, pengawas perpustakaan berkomitmen, ulasan buku, penghasilan bahan pengajaran dan pembelajaran (kategori guru dan murid), murid yang banyak meminjam buku perpustakaan, pertandingan kerap ke perpustakaan, dan pemenang anugerah NILAM setiap tingkatan. Selain itu, aktiviti yang mendapat sambutan hangat ialah teka kacang dalam botol dan cabutan bertuah mengunjungi perpustakaan dalam minggu PSS. Hadiah-hadiah juga diberi kepada pemenang-pemenang dalam bentuk wang tunai, pen sentuh, voucer buku, dan hamper. Pihak PSS amat berbesar hati atas sambutan yang amat menggalakkan daripada semua warga ACS.

             

Dalam pertandingan penghasilan bahan bantu mengajar KBKK/Ms. Power Point kategori guru tempat pertama dimenangi oleh Cik Azma binti Mohamad Amin (Sains Tg. 1). Pemenang kedua pula dimenangi oleh En. Ganesan a/l Murusamy (Sejarah Tg. 4), dan pemenang ketiga dalam mata pelajaran Ekonomi Asas Tg. 4 dimenangi oleh Pn. Zarina binti Bahri. Tahniah kepada semua pemenang dan terima kasih kepada semua yang terlibat sama ada secara langsung atau tidak langsung dalam menjayakan Minggu PSS 2013 ini.

              

‘NILAM’ atau Nadi Ilmu Amalan Membaca merupakan penggabungan atau adunan semua aktiviti galakan membaca yang pernah dijalankan di sekolah dengan memberi pengiktirafan yang sesuai. Pelaksanaan program ini meliputi penilaian pembacaan yang berterusan sepanjang tahun dan markah dikumpulkan secara kumulatif sehinggalah mereka tamat persekolahan. Program ini ialah satu usaha Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia dengan matlamat untuk membina tabiat membaca dalam kalangan murid. Bahagian Teknologi Pendidikan ialah urus setia di Kementerian Pelajaran yang ditugaskan untuk menyelaras program ini.

Program ini telah mula dilaksanakan dengan Tahun Satu di sekolah rendah dan Tingkatan Satu atau

Peralihan di sekolah menengah dengan rasminya pada 1999, melalui Surat Pekeliling Ikhtisas Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia Bil.13/1998: Program Membina Tabiat Membaca bertarikh 22 Mei 1998.

 Apakah tahap yang terdapat dalam program NILAM?

Program NILAM mempunyai dua tahap. Tahap pertama ialah untuk membina kemahiran dan menanam minat membaca sehingga terbina satu tabiat. Tahap ini dikenali sebagai JAUHARI. Tahap kedua pula membantu pencambahan penggunaan bahan dalam gerakan membaca. Tahap ini dikenali sebagai RAKAN PEMBACA.

Jumlah Buku Pengiktirafan

72 - 143 Gangsa

144 - 215 Perak

216 - 287 Emas

288 ke atas NILAM

Apakah yang dimaksudkan dengan TAHAP RAKAN PEMBACA?

Tahap RAKAN PEMBACA (RP) mengutamakan aspek

kepimpinan dalam aktiviti membaca. Setelah membaca sejumlah 100 buah buku murid layak memasuki tahap RP. Tahap ini memberi penekanan kepada kebolehan murid membimbing dan menarik minat orang lain supaya suka membaca. Walau bagaimanapun aktiviti Tahap JAUHARI masih diteruskan. Pengiraan markah bagi aktiviti ini diberikan mengikut jumlah aktiviti atau sesi aktiviti yang dijalankan mengikut kesesuaian umur murid seperti :

- Bercerita (1 sesi = 5 markah)

- Bicara Buku (1 sesi = 5 markah)

- Ulasan Buku (1 sesi = 5 markah)

- Meminjamkan buku (1buku x 5 peminjam = 5 markah)

Murid pada tahap Rakan Pembaca ini diberikan pemarkahan usaha mereka mengikut Jadual Sistem Ganjaran RP :

Jumlah markah aktiviti Pengiktirafan

100 – 199 Gangsa

200– 299 Perak

300 – 399   Emas

400 ke atas NILAM

Oleh itu, pihak pentadbir sekolah yang bertanggungjawab dalam urusan perolehan buku-buku perlulah mengambil kira faktor-faktor ini dalam usaha membina koleksi di Pusat Sumber Sekolah. Perkara kedua yang membentuk trend membaca dalam kalangan murid-murid pula ialah bentuk buku yang dibaca. Trend dan minat murid-murid sekarang lebih terarah kepada sesuatu yang bersifat teknologi dan ICT. Kita melihat ini sebagai sesuatu yang positif dan Program NILAM juga sememangnya sentiasa ditambah baik seiring dengan kemajuan teknologi sedia ada.

Dalam pelaksanaan Program NILAM diminta murid membaca sebanyak mungkin buku dankemudian mencatatnya dalam Buku Rekod NILAM. Buku-buku yang dimaksudkan ialah buku-buku berbentuk fizikal yang dipinjam dari Pusat Sumber Sekolah, Perpustakaan Awam ataupun yang mereka beli sendiri. Seiring dengan kepesatan teknologi, Program NILAM juga menggalakkan mereka membaca buku-buku dalam bentuk digital yang boleh diperoleh dari Pusat Sumber Digital, e-book dan juga CD/DVD. Malah mereka juga boleh memuat turun bahan-bahan bacaan dari internet untuk mereka baca dan simpan sebagai koleksi peribadi mereka. Sekarang ini sudah ada teknologi di mana buku-buku berbentuk digital boleh ”membacakan” buku tersebut untuk kita dan boleh disimpan di dalam pemain muzik MP3 dan juga iPod. Dengan kepesatan teknologi yang semakin memudahkan kita pada zaman ini, tidak ada alasan lagi sebenarnya untuk kita mengatakan bahawa kita tidak ada masa untuk membaca.
