HANNAH YEOH, petite package of dynamite is the Adun of Subang Jaya. I attended her ceremahs and she belts everything from the heart. She takes control, has presence and that itself is a statement.
Every school always seek out former students as role-models and it is not unusual if the Prefectorial Board of SMK Subang Utama invites YB Hannah to their dinner, held outside the school premises. Read here how the prefects were told to withdraw an invitation to Hannah:
Few months ago, I was invited to the Prefects' Reunion of SMK Subang Utama to be held next week. I just received news that I could no longer attend the function because I'm an assemblyman from Pakatan Rakyat.
Two prefects have confirmed that the teachers have issued a threat to the prefects to withdraw their invitation to me and if not, the event would be cancelled.
I am upset with this. Let me explain to you why this threat by the teachers is so fundamentally wrong:-
- this is a private function to be held outside the school;
- every past and present prefect is entitled to attend this event; and
- I was the Head Prefect for 1995/1996 and was one of the pioneers to start this yearly reunion for the prefects.
To the Prefectorial Board: Who are the teachers who gave this directive? What is the role of the school principal in this? What is the Prefectorial Board's Advisor's role in this? Give me names, give me photos of the culprits. I will send them into my GAS CHAMBERS that played host to the current Minister of Tourism, the current Peteri chief, the former Chief Justice, the EC chief, and a host of BN lawmakers. here
To the teachers who engineered this withdrawal: Shame on you. You are a disgrace to this noble profession which I was part of for 19 years. How can you face your own children when you possess such warped behavior? If you were forced to do this by the school principal, didn't you stand up to this unfair demand. What values are you promoting as educators? So what they now say about teachers is proven true......BN robots.....no brains to think, only springs to bow, stand and sit as instructed. Fortunately my kids have graduated and my three grandsons are away from such puerile influences.
To the Principal of SMK Subang Utama: Take optional retirement....there is nothing good that you can contribute to our future citizens. You have got to be UMNO Wanita.....an imploded organisation! Off with you.....usless and poor reflection of a mother.
You know what you people are......like this despicable character that EVEN THE GODS WOULD BE GREEN WITH ENVY here.
Latest update from Hannah's blog:
I have just received a call informing me that a meeting has been held in their school this morning further threatening the prefects and even the teachers - if they attend the reunion, they will be sacked. Some people think this is a minor issue.
This is not a petty or a political issue. Teachers who want to attend the function to see their ex-students also face the threat of losing their jobs. Looks like the leadership style of the principal or the education ministry is nothing but suppression.
Here is a gem of a piece on the same subject.
