This is the day, about 24 years ago where the first social science class in STF was established along with class 4sc1, 4sc2 and 4sc3. I was in 4sc3 at first, 10 days after being quarantined by the matron for having chicken pox. It was one of the scariest stays I've ever had in STF (sleeping in the sick bay for a few nights) that I sneaked out from the sick-bay during weekends, about 10 o'clock at night to sleep on my own bunk-bed in the Dang Anum block.
Well, that's not what I really want to tell here. There were 4 science classes at first. No social science class yet. My friends went to classes as usual until the Pengetua, Puan Khadijah told us about the new social science class that was going to be established in 7 boarding schools that year for students who dreamed to be an accountant, architect, ambassador, etc..etc....So, since I was in Form 4 sc. 3 class just for a few days and I wasn't really interested in Science subjects, I opted for the stream. But, I have no regret after that coz I love my class, my teachers, my classmates and the subjects that I learned except Account and Economy ( I never knew I could end up marrying an account and economy major student).
I remember how all form 4 students were being called out to listen to a lecture given by the Pengetua on the 1st of February 1982. She called us rebellious and stubborn because almost all of us did not go to the classes where we were assigned to. We simply hung around our old classmates in Form 3, and that gave headaches to the administration.
"Kerana kamu semua degil sangat, saya bagi kamu peluang untuk pilih kelas kamu sendiri. Kelas social science sebelah kanan sekali. Kemudian kelas sains 3 barisan, cepat!"
And that's it! First time in history (that I know), we got the chance to choose our own class with friends and buddies that we liked...Memang hebat! Memang best! (but later on we heard gossips that the seniors did not like our action.) The hall became so noisy with students running here and and there to choose their preferred class. It was really chaotic. But at last 4 classes were formed including my class, 4 SOC SCIE (pronounced like SOK SAI).
There were 15 of us and everyday was nothing short but humour. We even organised our table into v shape just to look different. We had En Masdar as the class teacher and later our Ustazah in Form 5. The best period was Physical Education class. Cik Ramlah always allowed us to playbasket ball until the game became our favourite activity during PE. There were so many unforgetable memories left in STF but the ones that I had with my classmates and teachers were the best of all!. To my ex-classmates..........
Raja Mazlena Raja Aziz@Gina (who liked to twist her hair)
Saidatul Baisah Shahidan@Adek
Rozaimi Zakaria@Ami ( the first to wear tudung in class)
Siti Suzana Mohd Rashid@CT (who always had some soaked tissues under the desk...)
Wan Suziana wan Othman@OG (the only student in our batch who got 1 in English 1119)
Yazreen Yahya@Reen(now a beautiful Datin)
Salmah Mohd Noor@Ti (I tried wearing her back support once .....)
Mumtazah Mustajab@Mum (who liked to carbon-copied her letters to her mom who was residing in Brunei at that time)
I wish you all happy annivessary. Hope to see you all again, in one class, one day.
HIDUP SOC SCIE!!!
