09 September 2022 - Passion Is Energy

It has been a wonderful week filled with lots of excitement as we opened our doors to prospective parents and children to TIS Puchong for our Open Day. We held talks and other workshops for parents to learn more about our International Primary Curriculum; children experienced taster sessions in both our Early Years and Primary classrooms. It was delightful to hear that our special visitors were given a warm welcome by our friendly students who displayed great confidence when speaking with the parents and children. 

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” - Oprah Winfrey

This week’s recipe is ‘Passion’. We all know that no doubt, to be able to do something well, just hard work wouldn’t suffice; one needs passion. Passion drives all great things to be achieved and if passion isn’t prevalent, we lose the meaning of learning. So how do we instil passion in our children?

According to TeachThought, an organisation dedicated to innovation in education through the growth of outstanding teachers, a study in 1985 ‘On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein’ found that Einstein’s brain was not significantly different from others, but what made his mind different was that his thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius.

In the classroom, teachers often find out students’ interest to be able to foster passion and personalise the learning to suit individual learners. An example of this would be that if a child is passionate about art, then the learning can be expressed in ways that are more creative. If another child is more interested in science, then that child would pose questions, research and experiment in different ways. Developing passion for different subject areas can also be encouraged when children work collaboratively to inspire, encourage each other to try something new and different. Children often develop passion when they observe their peers, teach and learn from one another.


We had our Primary Merdeka Day assembly last Friday. It was a memorable one with the children all dressed up in their traditional clothes and some also came in their patriotic Malaysian national colours. They sang the national anthem with so much pride and also the melodious ‘Saya Anak Malaysia’ tune was one that even the little ones from Nursery hummed to. Mr Munir led the whole school to chant the ‘Laungan Merdeka’ reminding everyone of the iconic moment when Malaysia received its independence on 31st August 1957 after unity amongst the three major ethnic groups (Malays, Indians and Chinese) led to the signing of the London Agreement.

Lastly, I would like to say thank you to the school community who have come together with our staff and the Ganesan family with regard to donations for a cancer charity in memory of our beloved Anjanah. More details on this will be shared soon. Thank you and have a restful weekend.
