Sekolah Alam Shah

SAS Blazonry
Sekolah Alam Shah (in Malay), Alam Shah School or simply SAS is a boys-only fully residential school located in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The school was previously situated in Bandar Tun Razak, a leafy suburb in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur for 41 years, before shifting to Putrajaya in 2003. The school's alumni comprises of many successful individuals in Malaysian academia, politics and business.

History

SAS was established as a result of the National Education Policy under the Razak Report of 1958. The Malay vernacular secondary school system began in 1958; however SAS was the first Malay school to offer Form 6 (pre-university) classes. Henceforth, the school trailblazed the way for Malay stream students to enrol in tertiary education in institutions of higher learning both local and overseas. SAS takes pride as being the first fully residential Malay medium school in the country.

The commencement of construction of the school was planned together with that of the Maktab Perguruan Ilmu Khas (MPIK) (Special Teachers' Training College), Jalan Cheras in 1958; however this was delayed to 1961. The school was completed in 1962, at a cost of RM3.0 million. On 7 February 1963, SAS enrolled its first students. His Majesty the Second Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Marhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, consented the use of His Majesty's name (Alam Shah) on the school. The first principal was Mr. Halimi bin Haji Sharbaini and his name is now immortalised in the name of one of SAS' residences, Halimi.

On 7 March 1964, the school was officially opened by His Majesty the then Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj ibni Almarhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah, with the Selangor Menteri Besar, the Minister of Education and various Department of Education officials in attendance.

The first intake consisted of students from Forms 4-6, including 8 female students in Form Lower 6. In 1974, enrolment of Form 1 students began and in 1972, the school halted the intake of female students with the opening of a girls' residential school, Sekolah Seri Puteri. Meanwhile, the enrolment of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) (National University of Malaysia) Matriculation students began in 1975 and was ended in 1998.

On 26 April 2003, after some resistance from the Alumni of Sekolah Alam Shah (ASAS), students and teachers, the school shifted premises to a new 35 acre (142,000 m²) campus in Putrajaya. The move into the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC)-designated city was in line with the school's status as a smart school. The old premises in Bandar Tun Razak now houses a new school, Sekolah Menengah Sains Alam Shah (Alam Shah Science Secondary School).

Rally and Blazonry

The Anthem

The School’s anthem, Alam Shah Jaya, which means Alam Shah Succeeds was written and composed by an Indonesian teacher, the late Oscar H. Batoebara. The anthem’s lyrics illustrate the students' hopes, virtues, and determination to excel in both their studies and their co-curricular activities.

"ALAM SHAH JAYA"

Sekolah Alam Shah megah berjasa

Membimbing satria harapan bangsa

Cita Usaha Jaya amalan kita

Jadi cogankata setiap masa


Pelajar Alam Shah taat berbakti

Untuk nusa dan bangsa ibu pertiwi

Tuhan merestukan cita-cita mulia

Bertekad dan berdoa Alam Shah Jaya

The Blazonry

The school motto is Cita, Usaha, Jaya which means Aim, Effort, Success. The armorial bearings consist of a white tome, a torch, a banner bearing the school motto and Jalur Gemilang-derived crescent and star set on red and yellow in the school blazonry.

The red and yellow colours signify the qualities of dynamicity and cautiousness; 1963 is the year SAS was founded; the torch signifies the education and guidance given by the pedagogues of the school; the crescent and star symbolize the nation, Islam and Rukunegara; the colours blue and white represent the values of serenity and purity; and the book represents knowledge as well as sapience of the mind.

Academic

Academic excellence is beyond doubt an important asset to the school. Academics have been the main target of SAS in developing students and preparing them with sufficient knowledge to pursue their tertiary education. SAS puts academic achievement in government examinations in the list of great importance, and these examinations are namely Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) and Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM). To succeed in both exams, the school's administration has prepared trimestre exams and monthly tests. Besides, in the pursuit of success, a variety of academic programmes have been organised by both the school and the students such as Muridku Sayang (MKS), tests, seminars, academic camps and Rakanku Sayang (RKS).

Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR)

In PMR, SAS' excellence is an undeniable fact. It is safe to say that every year SAS maintained 100% passing students and rather high percentages of straight-A's. Nearly every year SAS gets the honour of being named the best school in PMR results. Some of the subjects named to be a tradition in excellence are Science, Living Skills, Mathematics and Geography. The efforts of the teachers and strenuous striving of the students are the main factors that resulted in achieving straight-A's and brought the school to the peak of excellence.

Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM)

In SPM, SAS maintains the quality of achievements in the main subjects like Physics, Biology, Additional Mathematics, Chemistry and English 1119. SAS have produced 100% first grade students in 1998 and made history when the school monopolised top results in nearly all main subjects, and ranked best government school in Malaysia. Credit is given to teachers who have utilised various medium and techniques of teaching to ensure comprehension in every subject taught. A great deal of exercises and homework were given to encourage students to master all topics in the subjects.

The anti-impotency treatment you are going to adopt just after being identified with erectile dysfunction is not likely to yield any fruitful result if you do not abide by the precautionary instructions recommended by the physician. For instance, after procuring viagra online if you administer cheap viagra without providing the necessary details to the doctor with regard to your medical history then there are chances that viagra intake might prove disastrous to you. Most particularly, if you are taking nitrate based medicine such as nitroglycerin patches to treat a specific medical condition you should inform the doctor immediately so that he doesn’t suggest you to buy viagra. The usage of Viagra by any person using nitrate-based medicines can trigger off health disaster and as such you can definitely avoid the imminent harm by explaining your medical history to the doctor and avoiding to buy viagra online if the drug is not meant for you.
