|Datin Cheam, PK Koko and Form 1 girls and teachers begining the HOMS murals|
The Habits of Minds HOMS murals were drawn by the Form 1 students under the diligent supervision of Datin Cheam and teachers this week. Since I was called out of school unexpectedly to attend a week long course in IAB Genting, I could not fully participate in this event which I had much looked forward to. However during the evenings when I went down to KL on Monday evening for the PIBG AJK meeting and then again on Tuesday evening for the Board of Governors meeting, I caught glimpses of the girls, teachers and Datin Cheam hard at work on the murals.

Note the girls' input with a creative style of placing the words
at different angles
|Painting even in the rain shielded by umbrellas |
showed the value of persisting HOMS
was painted not just on the walls
but also in the souls of our girls and teachers.
|Striving for accuracy - Bull's eye - girls.|

a Malay, a Chinese and an Indian portrayed on the mural.
I sought leave from the course to come to school early on Thursday morning so I could wish all the staff , the workers and students Happy Deepavali, Selamat Awal Muharaam and Happy holidays for the long break. It was also a good time for me to catch up on the finished HOMS murals.
