My Golden Year of Shells

When I started KES, one of the first things I was introduced to was the Liber Aureus (Golden Book). Huh? The “Liber Aureus”? The GOLDEN BOOK? That was my initial reaction. But to my surprise (and possibly disappointment), this mysterious-sounding, famous, fancy Latin-named tome of legend was not a book constructed from pure, 24-karat gold – now that I think of it, that would be quite impractical.

Apparently, this Golden Book was one of the highest achievements in the school. If you did an exceptional piece of work (like, REALLY exceptional) or gained a certain amount of credits (the school point system), your name would be written down in the Golden Book, so your achievement would be remembered even years on from now. Getting an entry in the Golden Book was the one thing everybody in school worked towards, and soon, I too joined the race. 

Since then, I probably worked harder than I ever had. Like my classmates around me, I had the Golden Book in my sights. And so that was how I worked until December 2018, when I got my first Golden Book entry – a DOUBLE ENTRY too, if that wasn’t surprising enough. I couldn’t believe it! Up until then, being able to make my mark in the Golden Book seemed so out of reach to me. And here I was, holding the pen in my hand that would write down my name in the prestigious Golden Book! Little did I know that by the end of my first academic year, I would have a total of not 1, not 2, but 4 Golden Book entries, meaning that my name was carved into school history four times! What a great way to end the school year alongside my unexpected exam results! I don’t know how I did it, but it was indeed a miracle!

Alhamdulillah, I feel so blessed to earn such a great achievement. However, I cannot claim that this is just a product of my hard work. I would not have achieved this without my teachers. Their fruitful teachings have benefited me in countless ways, not just academically! My friends have also given me their support and encouragement. It’s true to say that a friend’s motivation is like no other!

Above all, a lot of the credit goes to my family, especially my parents, Mrs Mom and Mr Dad, without whom I would have never gotten this far. They are the ones who have been sacrificing a lot for me. Their unconditional love and endless support have motivated me to keep on working harder!

And how could I forget all of you wonderful people? You are our loving supporters! I may not know all of you, but your love, prayers, and kind words touch my heart. There is no way I could thank you all enough! May God shower you and your families with the best of blessings!

And of course, all praise is due to Allah, for He is the one who has seen all my struggles, and He is the one who has showered His endless blessings upon me. For now, all I can do is thank Allah and pray that next year will be as fruitful as this one.

I also know that somewhere, somehow, my Mamajee is watching over me. I just hope that I have done enough to make him proud of his nephew as he looks on. May Allah let us all be reunited in Jannah.

Last but not least, I would like to say goodbye to the Shells year. It has shaped me into the KES boy I am today!

Blessed,

Omar Mukhtar

Feeling Blessed…

Alhamdulillah, what a great way to end the Spring Term! Other than my excellent end-of-term report, me and 3 other students from Year 7 were selected to go to the University of Birmingham to compete in Salter’s Chemistry Festival. And guess what? We won 1st Prize! We were competing against 16 other schools from the West Midlands in a chemistry forensics challenge. We managed to win and we were the only team to gain full marks for our final answers too. And that’s not all, we were among the youngest there! But above all, nothing could beat the proud smiles on my parents’ faces! I thank God for giving me the opportunity to not only represent my school, but to make my parents happy! May God guide me on the right path so that I can continue to make my parents proud and set a good example to my little brother and sister, Fatimah and Ali!

Blessed,

Omar Mukhtar a.k.a. The Pawsome Lion

A Poopy Story…

 

This half-term in Science, we’ve been looking at biology, specifically the development of babies. So, the Science department decided to adopt some babies so we could examine their growth over the next few weeks. Relax…they weren’t real human babies! They were only baby chicks, and really, the chicks were actually eggs to start with. So don’t worry, no human babies were harmed during our Science lessons!

I was actually lucky enough to witness the first few baby chicks hatching! The picture above is of me before the half-term holidays (credit to my friends Prnay and Daniel for the photos) when the Science teachers decided to give us a little treat and let us stroke the hatched chicks. You might think that it was enjoyable, and it was, until that sweet moment turned into chaos! Literally all the chicks started pooping on all of my friends! In the end, everyone was less concerned about the chicks than they were about washing chick poop off their clothes and avoiding the chicks as much as they could. I was lucky enough to quickly put down the chick in the picture the moment before it did a Number 2! So overall, my first experience holding newborn chicks was not what I expected!

When we had all sat back down (and all the chick poop was washed away) one of my classmates asked the Science teacher what would happen to the chicks when we finished learning about Biology. In response, the teacher said, “Well, they’ll be sent back to the farm where they came from and, in a few months time, they’ll be…well, they might be on your plate the next time you go to KFC!” And that’s how the teacher successfully managed to keep the class quiet for the rest of the lesson – you should have seen our faces then!

Have a PAWSOME Wednesday,

My Last School Report!

Is there such a thing as school-sick? Because if there is, then I am SCHOOL-SICK! This was my last school report, written by my class teacher, Miss Patrick. As you can see, it is very detailed! When I first received it, I was awed, not by the length of it, but by the fact that she didn’t miss a single detail about me! Just thinking about the amount of effort she put into it touched me! This is something that I will never forget. I will definitely treasure this forever! And in case you’re wondering, yes, that bouquet of flowers that Miss Patrick is holding was from me! 😊

Have a pawsome Wednesday,

A Message From A Brother…

When I was born, people from Malaysia laughed at my parents for naming me ‘Omar Mukhtar’. According to them, it was a backdated name. They said, “You live in England, why would you give him a name like that?”. The funny thing is that living in England, none of the local people who lived here ever made fun of my name, even at school, students and teachers alike. My parents call me by my full name ‘Omar Mukhtar’, or ‘Mukhtar’ for short. I did choose to be called ‘Mukhtar’ at school too, because ‘Omar’ is also my father’s name and it could get confusing. Even though my friends and teachers found it hard in the beginning to pronounce the name ‘Mukhtar’, they didn’t choose to call me ‘Omar’ just because it was easier for them. They all respected my decision and tried their best to pronounce it. They never call me anything I didn’t want to be called.

I love how my parents named all three of us – Omar Mukhtar, Fatimah and Ali. They didn’t simply just say, “Ooh, ‘Omar Mukhtar’ sounds like a nice name, I’m going to call my son that” no, they named us after the owners of the names, hoping that one day, we might become as great a person as they are – Omar Mukhtar, after the famous Lion Of The Desert; Fatimah, after the beloved Prophet’s daughter; and Ali, after the 4th Khalifa in Islam. Our parents always reminded us how important our names are and that we must live up to them. They also told us to be proud of our names and never be ashamed of them, even though some people say they are old-school.

Whenever we go out and people ask all three of our names, they praise our parents for giving us such great names. There is even a teacher from my school who, whenever I pass him, tells me how much he loves my name. He tells me this on a daily basis without fail!

Now, the same thing that happened to me is happening to Fatimah too. People called her ‘Timoh’ and made fun of her name. It made her really upset! She gets annoyed whenever people call her anything other than her full name because at home and at school, everyone always calls her Fatimah. Sadly, the only people who make fun of our names are Malaysian. Some people simply label those who call Fatimah as ‘Timoh’ only from Kelantan or Terengganu. They’re not! They’re actually from all over Malaysia, which has spread to Singapore and Brunei too!

My parents have been telling people for years to call Fatimah properly but they never stopped calling her ‘Timoh’ until my aunt decided that she too has had enough with all this name calling, so she wrote a post about why we called her Fatimah. After this was posted, we received floods of messages from people who went through the same experience as us. It was truly shocking reading their stories and thinking about what effect it must have had on their lives! But sadly, after that, still, there were many who kept on calling her ‘Timoh’ because they say it’s ‘cute and funny’. How rude!

Name-calling is an act of insult and is a form of bullying. I’m surprised how with all this anti-bullying awareness around the world, people still don’t realise that name-calling is an act of bullying! Don’t take name-calling lightly because it’s a very serious matter! It can affect the person really badly on the inside, even though you can’t see it. They may lose their confidence, for example, and that may affect their life in the long run.

They may blame themselves for their problems, which can also lead to loss of confidence. I could go on and on with this list of effects.

As the Head Boy of my school, if anything like this happened, I would strongly go against it as bullying cannot be tolerated in any situation whatsoever! I would also plead to parents and teachers out there to take this matter seriously and do as much as they can to play their role and prevent things like this from repeatedly happening!

Imagine that every day for a week, you went up to a mirror and called yourself something you don’t like being called. It wouldn’t make you feel too good about yourself, would it? That’s exactly how Fatimah feels when she’s called ‘Timoh’, and how I felt when people made fun of my name. Sure, some people don’t do it intentionally, but we’ve been telling them how to call Fatimah correctly, and still, when she’s now already 4 years old, they continue to mock her name!

Honestly, I’m curious why some Malaysians, who are from the same religion as us, mock our names, whereas people from different religions praise them.

So all in all, name-calling? It’s an act of bullying. It’s something that needs to be stopped and together, we can make that happen. Let us build a world where we can feel safe and happy, a world where bullying is a thing of the past! I am an 11-year-old boy in Year 6 whose sister has experienced bad name-calling, so I’m speaking for her and for those who have suffered and are still suffering from the same issue. If we all act as one then maybe, just maybe TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

p/s: STOP calling my sister TIMOH. Her name is FATIMAH! She has me on her right and Ali on her left. As for me, I’m not bothered if you don’t like my name because I am OMAR MUKHTAR THE PAWSOME LION!

🍰 A Piece of Cake: TOP ATHLETE! 🏆

TOP ATHLETE doodle.jpg

A boy was in his sports class, beginning to feel very bored. He was the worst out of everyone. Suddenly, his teacher shouted, “Exercise is important!”

The boy was puzzled as to why his teacher had said this. But, in order to try and impress his teacher, he left the school and ran to the McDonald’s in the next city. After travelling 30 kilometres, he reached a McDonald’s branch and asked, “Could I have 100 buckets of fries 🍟, please?”

He was given the fries for free (as he was their 1000th customer) and ran back to his sports class. When he arrived at his school, he presented the fries to his teacher. “Where have you been? You haven’t exercised!” exclaimed his teacher.

“Exercise? I thought you said extra fries!” said the boy to his teacher, who was watching a crowd of people shout “TOP ATHLETE!”

School’s Here!!!

Wagwan pawsome peeps! Hope you’re doing well! As you all know, the Easter holidays have come to an end and it’s the start of a new school term. Since I haven’t written about school for quite a while now, I have decided to write a quick update about what’s going on at school.

As usual, I couldn’t wait to meet my PAWSOME Hazel class again on the first day back. Everyone was in a cheerful mood, especially the ROARSOME duo, Miss Javed and Miss Hussain!

natural-disasters

Since it was the start of a new term, we would be starting a new topic. Our topic for this term is all about Natural Disasters. This topic is jam-packed with lots of fun things to learn such as why earthquakes happen, what makes volcanos erupt, how tsunamis form and much more. And, we made great, enormous volcanos out of ordinary plastic bottles that were put on display. Some children also drew life-like pictures of natural disasters. From what I have seen, I guarantee that everyone will enjoy learning about this topic!

Then, on Thursday, something special happened at school. It was…Arts Day! Arts Day is a day that is dedicated to art and design. Each Arts Day has a different theme each year. The theme for this Arts Day was portraits! As usual, there was task for us to complete. We had to create a portrait, collage or sculpture of someone who inspires us the most. Being the typical me, I’m always ready to take on the challenge! So, I made piece of artwork with both me and Mr Dad in it. As part of the artwork, I also created a quote related to father and son. It was:

“My father is the greatest father anyone could have. He gives me love, guidance and he always believes in me.

But the best gift he gave me was teaching me how to spread my wings and fly!”

animaatjes-graffiti-51227

I presented my artwork in a HUGE frame that looked like a film strip. And like I always say, even if I don’t win, I still tried my best! As a treat, a graffiti artist came visited us and explained to us what graffiti is! He also wrote the school’s initials in graffiti style writing and showed us some of the techniques that are used in graffiti art. The finishing product looked AA-mazing!  The graffiti art was going to be in the middle of our arts display once the portraits that we made at school were finished.

rainbow

Each year group was also asked to wear a certain colour on that day. This was all part of a school arts piece that we made. Year 4 was asked to wear a blue shirt or dress. Miss Javed and Miss Hussain were both wearing blue tops, blue trousers and even blue hair extensions! For once, they actually looked like twins! When all of the year groups were sitting together, the colours of our clothes made a magnificent rainbow if it was seen from above. Some of the teachers took photos of us and we all can’t wait to see them!

handwriting

Me and Nimat have also started our very own Handwriting Club! Our aim is to help children develop their handwriting so they have a better chance of earning a pen licence in the future. There are currently 5 children attending the club. From time to time, we also ask some other children to help us run the Handwriting Club because these children can be a handful (if you know what I mean)! At the moment, the club is for Year 2 children and is held three times a week. The club has been going on for more than two months now. We are also hoping to open up to other year groups over time.

drama

There is also some other news that I would like to share with you guys. I have finally got a place in Drama Club! As the name states, this is a club where we act out plays and movies. It is run by Mr Ball, a class teacher in Year 5. The play that we are currently practising is called A Midsummer Night’s Dream written by the well-known William Shakespeare. Surprisingly, I got the lead male role called Lysander! As a coincidence, Nimat is also in Drama Club! She plays the role of the Fairy. Rehearsals are held every Monday after school and Thursday at lunchtime. The actual play will be held in June and we are all very excited about it.

welcome

Last but not least, I would like to welcome a new student that has recently joined us. His name is Furqan! It has been around two weeks since he started at our school and has settled in really well. Welcome to Shireland Hall Primary Academy, Furqan! I hope you enjoy your time with us!

I’m afraid that I’ll have to end the post here, guys. But, keep your eyes peeled for the next update about another special day that I’ll be writing shortly! Till we meet again, ciao everybody!

ciao new

 

P/S: I’m feeling a bit under the weather so it looks like no school for The Pawsome Lion tomorrow, which is like the end of the world for me!

A Quick Re-cap!

quick-recap

Hey pawsome peeps! Yesterday was the last day of the Autumn term at school so that means today is officially the first day of the Winter Holiday! The school will be closed for two weeks and will be back open for the Spring term on Tuesday 5th January 2016. Phew, thank God! That means that I have time to celebrate Little Miss Diva’s 2nd birthday on the 3rd of January!

tumblr_n5drx0HL2X1qfismso1_500.gif

I know that I haven’t kept you updated about school for a while now. Well, to be honest, as I can recall, I haven’t posted anything about school since the 8th of December which was two weeks ago! Sorry for that because my life has been hectic trying to keep up with my schedule. So, now, let me give you a quick re-cap about what’s been happening for the last two weeks!

Happy, Hectic Header

What was so pawsome about the 8th of December? Our very own Winter Event!! The event was held at my school, where there was plenty of space for millions of stalls and fun activities. Because the event was held on a school day, we had to have half a day at school and lots of children were looking forward to either go back home or come back to school for the Winter Event in the afternoon. And of course, no matter where they were, they would still be having fun. Now let me tell you a bit more about it…

Childrens-Christmas-Party-Featured-item

When it was the end of school, I went back home with Mr Dad to get changed and gather everything. Mrs Mom also said that we should take Little Miss Diva with us. At that point, I just froze and gawped! How am I supposed to take care of Little Miss Diva when she can’t even switch off her hyper mode for at least one whole minute? But I guessed that if I keep holding her hand tightly and make sure that she doesn’t let go then it will be fine.

kfwtXXL.gif

So, me, Mr Dad and Little Miss Diva collected what we would need to take to the Winter Event and set off. Unfortunately, Baby A couldn’t come with us because it was raining. At least it wasn’t raining when we reached school!

2779253606_d5141a165b.jpg

When we arrived at our destination, the school looked pretty full to me. But, when me, Mr Dad and Little Miss Diva entered the building, it looked as if the whole school had attended the Winter Event! There was children as far as the eye could see. A big group of people were crowding around the face painting table, there was a long, ever-lasting line that looked like it would never end in front of the bouncy castle and children pushing and shoving to make sure that they could ride the donkeys.

tumblr_mjgfwuTSAe1rdhao3o1_500.gif

As always, every teacher had something to do. Can you guess what Miss Javed and Miss Hussain were doing? They had to look after the donkeys! 😀 I have to say though, they are real donkey friends! The donkeys would listen to what they both said and obey them. Another teacher called Mrs O’Conner, who is the teaching assistant in my Maths class, was in charge of face painting. She herself said that she was no good at face painting. So, she would just paint a red bauble on everyone’s cheeks! But, the next day, it turned out that Mrs O’Conner was really good at face painting. She could paint snowmen, snowflakes, trees and angels too!

il_fullxfull.254510177.jpg

I asked Mrs O’Conner if she could paint a tree for me and away she went, with her tiny, little paintbrush wiping my skin. There was a splash of green first, then brown, black, red and blue. The finishing product looked really nice and authentic. Little Miss Diva also wanted her face to be painted so we asked another teacher who was at the face painting table to paint some snowflakes on her cheek. That teacher was Miss Mclean, my Maths teacher! The snowflakes looked good too! Little Miss Diva sat quietly through the painting process which is highly unusual for her. But, as soon as the painting was finished, the first thing that she did was rub the snowflakes off with her hands! Ugh, I knew it! Every time she does something that she doesn’t normally do, like BEHAVE, there will be something mischievous that she does after that! So, what a waste!!!

mr_men_3

Other things at the Winter Event also included a ton of candy floss, heaps of popcorn, the bounciest bouncy castle, fantastic candy canes, hundreds of mini games, food stalls for miles and the piece de resistance, A FIREWORK SHOW!!!!! Everybody who attended the amazing event had a great time and enjoyed themselves, especially me! Well done SHP for organising the great event!

tumblr_nhh3tl4r4I1u3ihpao1_500.gif

The next thing that happened at school was Year 4’s curriculum celebration which was on the 15th of December! It involved all three Year 4 classes which are Hazel, Aspen and Willow. If any of you don’t know, a curriculum celebration is a certain day which happens every half term when parents can come to school and find out what their child has been learning about and sometimes, they might be in for a treat! Mr Dad is very supportive and he never misses any important event including this curriculum celebration. This half term, we were learning about the Aztecs and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! This time, we had a song, some children reading out some parts of a play, a display of artwork that we did and some other things too. On that day, me and Shreya were asked to bring our guitars in for the song that we would be singing! All of the parents and children enjoyed the curriculum celebration this term.

maxresdefault.jpg

Then, on Wednesday 16th December, my class made Aztec masks! Yep, incredible Aztec masks!!! We made these masks as part of our learning about Aztecs and chocolate this term. Making the masks were great fun. Some of the materials that we used to make our masks were:

  1. Black plastic masks
  2. Gloopy PVA glue
  3. Shiny gold pen/paint
  4. Dazzling silver pen/paint
  5. Metallic pink paint
  6. Metallic blue paint
  7. Metallic green paint
  8. Soft, bouncy foam
  9. Small coloured sticks
  10. Bendy pipe cleaners
  11. Fluffy feathers
  12. Glistening sequins
  13. Wiry mesh

My mask had gold, blue and pink paint with sequins, foam and feathers. There was also a curly pipe cleaner that went around its head. To me, it looked like a halo! The gold paint was really shiny and nearly blinded me! Nearly every mask in the class looked astounding. I hope that we get to do something like that again so that we could all show our artsy side!

Arts_SubCat_Header

Next on the list is the special event that I’ve been looking forward to. It is…the Yes Smethwick Christmas Disco!!! Remember those Cluster Council meetings that I went to with Nimah at Victoria Park Primary Academy? We were busy organising the event and finally, it was the time to break the news. To tell everyone in Year 5 about the special event, me and Nimah prepared a speech and went into the two classes in Year 5 to tell them about it. However, I was glad to find out that I didn’t have to do any more work at the disco! On the day that the disco was held, some teachers started to give out the VIP Tickets to the first 20 people that brought their consent form in. Luckily, I was one of those 20 (more like 14) people that received a ticket. The ticket was as big as an A5 piece of paper! The disco was at Hadley Stadium and started at 4:00pm until 5:30pm. There was a DJ, free refreshments, balloons all around the place, bright, dazzling lights, party poppers and a face painting table! Everybody that attended the event had a great time! All was well and the disco was a success! I am really grateful for the opportunity to experience what it is like to organise an event and I am very proud to be part of the team. I hope everyone enjoyed working together to make this event a hit! If we ever organise an event like that again, I hope that it will be a triumph!

vip.jpg

Then, on Thursday, we had a fun day! It was a non-uniform day for my class only because we won the attendance competition! I told ya that our Miss Javed and Miss Hussain are AMAZING!!! They are so amazing that Hazel class didn’t miss a day of school for one whole week and we managed to beat the whole school in the competition! On that day, we had no work to do so instead, we went on the laptops and played on a Maths game called Manga High! We also watched the movie Cinderella, drank milkshakes and Miss Hussain even baked some cakes for us!!! They were super duper yummy and pawsome! I think that she is the BEST baker in the WORLD!!!!! Once again, well done Hazel for winning! A pat on the back for you!

Last but not least is the last day of school! WOOHOO!! It was also Wear A Christmas Jumper To School Day on the same day so there were lots of festive clothes being worn by nearly everyone. Because it was the last day of school, my class had a party, we had Just Dance music on, we opened our presents from the Secret Santa game that Miss Javed organised and we did some festive activities to keep us merry. My Secret Santa was Uwais and thanks to him, I received a snap band watch which I’ve dreamt of! Thank you Uwais. I really appreciate it and I love the watch! There was also a performance that we did in the morning and once again, I had to bring my guitar in! The song that we were singing was called Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Mariah Carey. Unfortunately, the music was not working and we had to sing without the music but our singing sounded great! At homee time, Miss Javed gave out some cards and candy canes to us and we all bade her goodbye.

Happy holidays everyone! Make sure you use your two weeks wisely and don’t forget to make it fruitful! To those who celebrate Christmas, have fun with your loved ones! Till next time, Auf Wiedersehen!

AAATCHOO!!!!!

 

794-sick-teddy

Hey guys…aah…aah…TCHOO!!!!! Oops, sorry! I have a little cold which has been bothering me for the last couple of days. Anyway-cough, cough-today was not a very normal school day and that is because of a lot of things. One, I was sneezing and coughing a lot and two, the lessons weren’t like the lessons that we usually have. I’ll tell you all about it. Oh, sorry, wait a minute please! Aah…aah…TCHOO!!!!!

giphy.gif

Ahem, now, the first thing that we did was do the register. Then, we went off to our Maths classes. Maths today had a little twist to it. Our topic for Maths was data. Most people already knew about data. They knew the basics like bar charts, line graphs, pictograms and tally charts. But, as I said, the lesson had a little twist. We were going to…EAT CHOCOLATE!!! Aah…TCHOO!!!!! Sniffle, sniffle-sorry! Still can’t stop sneezing! Back to the point now, although we were tasting chocolate, we still had to do some work. But, the work was just filling out a table. The chocolate flavours were:

  1. Milk chocolate
  2. White chocolate
  3. Milk creations (milk chocolate, jelly beans and popping candy)
  4. Aero (mint)

And the worst of all…dark chocolate! Aah…aah…aah…TCHOO!!!!!

choc.gif

My favourite chocolate was the Milk Creations.

After Maths, we had our Literacy lesson and we were looking at newspapers. We were particularly focusing on articles. Hah, I’ve done about 3 or 4 articles already! Today, we were identifying the features of an article such as the headline, the by-line, the main body and so on. All of us had a little table to fill in. We also had to stick the article on an A3 piece of paper so that we could label it. Then, we went out for a break. Unfortunately, me and another boy called Krish couldn’t go out because we had a cold. That meant that we couldn’t play with our friends and to top that, we couldn’t play football with everyone else! 😦

tumblr_lwa7neGjKq1qbnxu6.gif

When everyone came back in, we carried on with our Literacy lesson. Then, it was time for lunch.

lunch

For my lunch, I had:

  1. A veggie burger
  2. Peas
  3. Salad
  4. A flapjack
  5. Juice

When lunch was over, we had a Learning Together lesson. In our lesson, we were designing our own Aztec Gods! These gods would then be transformed into masks like the Aztecs would wear except this time, we were going to wear it. Aah…aah…TCHOO!!!!! Ugh, sorry again. As I was saying, the Aztec God that I chose was the God of Fire. His name was Falalcholshcoaly (Fa-lal-col-shkol-lee). He had a Fire crown, a Fire cloth wrapped around his body, a Fire snake in one hand and a fireball in the other. The other Gods and Goddesses were pretty good. Some of them had 4 arms, others had long hair and others with unusual faces. After Learning Together was finished, it was home time.
