Dear Parents and Students,
The school started in 1.12.2001, with only 132 students of Form 1 and Remove. As of 2007, the student's enrolment is around 1,300 students. As of 2006, its first SPM test was taken by four classes of Form Five students. The first school Headmistress was Liu Ling Ling (above picture right) a woman who portrayed liberal connections with other schools, including private schools like Sri KDU.
The school owes its success to Puan Liu Ling Ling who through her hard work and the support of the teachers have established the school to be well known in the state of Selangor. Success such as the debating team, swimming team and even the cheer leaders’ team has made the school to be the envy of other surrounding schools. The school is full of talents as witnessed through their "Bakat Malam" concert that is held every year.
Through the PIBG the school has a ideal environment whereby parents work closely with the teachers to improve the education standard of the school. Fund raising is fully supported by all parents in ensuring the school would have the extra funds to provide to the needs of the children.
2008 is the dawn of a new era with the arrival of a new and very "experienced" Pengetua. In the last PIBG meeting, many questions and issues were raised for the improvement of the school. However, due to the time factor and the fact that it was getting late in the evening, the PIBG meeting has to end at 7pm. As such, many parents were left with many unanswered questions on many issues. Due to this unforeseen event, this “blog” has been set up to allow other concern parents to properly and diplomatically present their issues to the Pengetua in the most appropriate manner.
All parents and students are invited to write in so that at the end of the day, the issues will be compiled and forwarded to her (the PENGETUA) to be resolved.
The school field is in a terrible mess as it's beginning to look like a pond. Apparently due to the rainy season, the drainage pipe has been clogged up and as such the school field look like a swampy land. On the sports day a few events had to be cancelled as the students were unable to run on the tracks. What a waste of all the efforts and practise the students have put in before the sports day.
Photos: Compliment from a ex-student who attended the sports day to cheer for his brother but sadly the event was cancelled due to the spoiled school field.
Note: The Flooded field which is left to shame during the Sports day. No efforts were taken to repair the field prior to the sports day, citing insufficient funds to do so.
The school pride itself for winning the MSSM Under 15 soccer tournamnet. A dedicated parent volunteered his services in coaching the students. No big announcement was made about this victory. By winning this championship, the school was invited to play in the "DATUK BANDAR" Cup. Feedback from the students is that the Pengetua is not responding possitive to this sport. It seem that the school lack the budget to sponsor the jerseys and the transportation. The estimated cost for participating in this invitation is estimated at RM6,500.

Over RM30,000 have been spend on the beautification of the school compound which was unnecessary. In the recent PIBG meeting, it was said that such efforts would benefit the students. What doesnt make sense here is that the amount spend would only enable 1.2% of the student population to enjoy the facilities. The "pondok duduk" and the fountain is of low priority as compared to the field which is now a breeding ground for the Aedes mosquito. For these dangerous mosquitoes, the school has provided the ultimate feeding ground, over 1,000 students and easily available from dawn to dusk. .Both the above ie the repair of the field and the sponsorship of the soccer team requires some budget from the school. It seem that the school lack the funds while high expenses were put onto unnecessary item.
I dont see the school responding positive to sports. Can someone highlight on this?
Do note that the intention of this "blog" is for the benefit of the students studying in SMKBU4. It is to allow parents to voice their dissatisfaction in the school and it's not intended to attack anyone personally.
