Students Caught in Politics

How many of you has attended school reunion parties before? I haven't. Not that I don't have any friends from my previous schools, just that each time the function was held, it clashed with prior appointments. Anyway, not that it was a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig function, just a few of them that I have been in contact with ............ hehe

Imagine that you have been invited to a school reunion and you were supposed to give a speech. Just when the actual day was getting nearer, you have been told not to attend the function. Reason given was the students who had been organising the function have been threatened. What? Threatened? Gangsters controlling the school? What happened?

This was the case for Hannah Yeoh, the state assemblyman for Subang. She was invited to her former school's (of SMK Subang Utama) prefects' reunion that was to be held at a venue outside of the school premise. Present and past prefects were invited. She was to grace the event. Then out of a sudden, she was told that she has been barred from attending.

School prefects were warned not to allow her to attend. By whom? By teachers of the same school. What has gotten into the brains of these teachers? The teachers are so caring that they do not want their school's students to be corrupted at a young age? Maybe, maybe not.

One reason could be due to the function which comes under the school's prefects. Even though it was held outside of the school's premise, the school's name is being used. Unless of course, this was a private function, solely borne by the past and present prefects. Only then it's different story.

In that case, if we see any other 'politicians' involved in any functions involving school students, we will highlight it to proof that there was biasness against Hannah Yeoh. You know which group of 'politicians' I'm referring to.

I'm sure the students would be very confused by all this rulings or threats. You mean to say that all students are not supposed to deal with any politicians in their schooling years?

Or the school teachers received threats too from even higher authorities?

apparently hishamuddin is responsible for issuing this letter that states that schools are not allowed to invite opposition politicians to school events. if they do invite, then if anything happens, the school will be held fully responsible.

until now, i still dun undestand how 'something' might happen. crapz.
