On the 10th day of January 2015, our family were invited by KAM to share our experience of home-schooling in “Sembang Santai: Home Schooling”.
My little brother, Ahmad Ali, was invited to deliver a speech on whatever topic he feels comfortable with. He decided to deliver a speech on the Freedom of Speech in Malaysia by the context of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia 😀
Halfway through the event, my siblings and I sang a song called “Alhamdulillah”.
We also sang “The Khalifah Song” which talks about being a good Khalifah of Allah.
Some of the participants directed their questions to my little brother and my elder sister. I watched with pride as they took the stage with confidence and answered the questions without wavering.
When my father suddenly called me up to share my thoughts on home-schooling, my heart shot out of my chest and thumped rapidly in my head because I have not prepared myself for any kind of speeches. I tried my best to share my thoughts on why I think home-schooling does not affects a person’s socialising and confidence skills.
The round of applause I received was very rewarding since I know that I did quite well.
After dismissal, we spent time chatting, sharing thoughts and also posing for pictures. The participants were very friendly and it was really fun to talk with them. Spending time with the nice and polite students was very pleasant too. They were also very thoughtful at the same time.
Attending the event gave a really great experience for all of us and I am so happy, thankful and feel very much honoured to take part in the event.
Thank you to KAM for inviting our family to the event which we will surely treasure in our memories.
