POMG Meeting





SATURDAY morning, 21 July 2007, we –Iwan and Uni—were invited by foundation owner of Embun Pagi International School. That day was the end of first week of Darrel in Embun Pagi. On the invitation letter, the teacher said that they need to invite all of the parents to know their idea, their aspiration, and maybe their complaints.
Actually we had other programs on that day. But, Darrel’s education is everything. We had visited more than five school, before finally we decided to choose Embun Pagi. You can read story about this on the previous article. So, we cancelled our other programs. We went to Embun Pagi.
The parents meeting was held on a spare land between front block and the school building. There is blue plastic roof to protect from hot sunlight.
‘’Ladies and gentlemen. We invited you to come here, to make you know who are the teacher. How is the foundation. And if you have any idea, please feel free to say to me,’’ said the head of foundation.
I thought the meeting will run smoothly. In fact I was wrong. Just after the MC gave time for parents to ask or raise idea, some parents waved their hand.
A mother complained about the security of the students. ‘’Right in front of us, there is Kalimalang Street. It’s really very crowded street. So the school must pay attention to the security of our children,.’’ She said.
Some few months ago, she said, he ‘’lossed’’ her daughter. Looking for many places, she found nothing. Panics. Alhamdulillah, finally she found her daughter in the parking area. ‘’You have to close the gate during the lessong time,’’ she said.
Another mom complained about the quit of the head of school. She is right, Embun Pagi International School has no head of school when the parents meeting held. Chief of foundation recognised that. ‘’Our head of school resigned during enrollment time,’’ he said.
The question is: why she resigned?
There are still many questions ahead. But, the foundation said, that he is receiving many applications letter. The selection is still going on. ‘’We will look for the best,’’ he said.

Aku berniat mendaftarkan anakku di Embun pagi utk kelas 1. Mau nanya pendapat pak iwan tentang kualitas pendidikan di sekolah ini.Mengingat sekolah ini masih terhitung baru.

Terima kasih sebelumnya.

bu mimi,
Puteranya mau masuk ke kelas 1 untuk taman kanak-kanak atau untuk SD? kalau yang untuk taman kanak-kanak, sementara ini saya merasa cukup puas. jumlah jam untuk bermain dan kelas, cukup berimbang. komunikasi orangtua dengan guru juga bisa berjalan cukup baik.
tapi kalo untuk yang sekolah dasar, saya masih memonitornya. tahun ini baru pertama kalinya ada SD. di Embun Pagi. yang jelas, pengelola sekolah kelihatan serius. namun mengenai hasil dan pelaksanaannya, kita harus menunggu. saya sih berharap, SD-nya akan berjalan baik, sehingga menjadi salah satu sekolah unggulan.
