Sekolah Menengah Sains Dungun is one of I don't know how much bestari schools in Malaysia. A top from that, it's also one of the 54 sekolah berasrama penuh (SBP) under the federal government of Malaysia. It has all the ingredients of a very good school.
Wanna see it's 'official' website? Just click here.
It's really sad come to think that a so called 'bestari' SBP to just have a msn groups thingy as the official website. Where's the bestari yg digempar gemburkan selama ni? Setakat ade 30-50 komputer kat sekolah doesn't make it bestari. I mean, rata2 budak2 tau gune kom ntuk main game and chatting je.
Budak2 yg terer komputer lebih skit drp org lain plak terus pikir like thy're on top of the world, berlagak poyo sume. I recalled this group of students in school dulu who call themselves the 'Briged bestari'. Kinda funny.
Well, anyway, back to pasal website smsd ni..huhu.. dah la pakai groups, only god knows when it was last updated. It's already the middle of the second month of schooling, and I don't see any thing different since I opened it a few months back. Not a single news about the school's acheivment (except the 2005 SPM and PMR results)through out last year. Nak harapkan ade gambar lagi la. User friendly? That's totally out of the picture. Frankly speaking, the website's had microimprovements since 2000, and I bet 'ya that nobody could see the difference between that time period.
I'm not really the type of guy that goes about criticizing things. But this is way beyond the limit. We were even promised a 'laman web sendiri yang terbaru dan canggih dalam 2/3 bulan lagi'. That was posted on the website on 9/8/2005. Ya I'm waiting.
I don't know what the 'guru cyber' and his team of 'briged bestari' are doing, but seems to me, not much. OK, the guru cyber ada lah ajar a few computer classes. But with all his assistants, he should have ample time and work force to at least update the website.
Here in the US, almost everything has it's own official website. Restoran2 cikai pun ade website sendiri. And better, bnyk yg boleh order online je. Even my x-elementary school's website is much better.
I'm not asking for a state-of-the-art website or anything, but at least let there be monthly updates. Biarlah nampak usaha untuk majukan skit website sekolah.
SMSD was officially a sekolah bestari in the year 2000 (the year I entered). They even made us wear blazers kononnye nak bagi nampak ke'bestari'an tuh..haha..I don't know where's the sense in that. Kalau betul2 nak bagi title bestari tuh, the schools should live up to expectations. There's more to bestari than wearing blazers to school and having computers.
