The fate of RMC

Now that Dato' Sri Abdullah is the new Minister of Defence, the Old Putera Association Exco led by the President needs to brief AAB on the plan for the new campus and the allocated RM100M for RMC in the 9th Malaysia Plan. The plan must be finalized and executed to meet the dateline of 2010. The plan must incorporate a detailed infrastructure proposal and the implementation of the International Baccalaureate system, hailed as an effective education tool to prepare students for tertiary education.

In times of racial tension, the RMC must be promoted once again as the supreme school model for racial tolerance, eloquently incorporated and indoctrinated in its gruesome military curriculum for high school level education. The strict regime of the school must be re-enforced once again and parents who are faint-hearted to see their kids go through 'hell' must withdraw their kids from the premier school and not mistaken it for next door Sekolah Menengah Sungai Besi or the former Bukit Bintang Girls School.

The introduction of the International Baccalaureate system must be hastened to execute the national agenda of strengthening the command of English for young Malaysians. The RMC is also known as the national factory for high-calibre leaders the likes of Tun Ling Liong Sik, Tan Sri Ghanalingam, Dato' Sri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad, Dato' Michael Yam, Tan Sri Halim Ali, scores of 4-star generals, high-ranking civil servants and corporate chiefs.

The Board of Governors must be reconvened and its member must be made responsible for the development of the new campus and its new policies and vision. If the chiefs of all 3 services and Mindef Secretary General take this as low priority, then the RMC shall perish as a successful system, created in 1952 to be part of nation building in producing future leaders. Even the late Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Abdul Razak used to chair the Board of Governors meeting, and such is the importance of RMC in the old days.

yup, i reckon you've nailed it here. tak bole kena hell kalu, tolong outing la... and make it permanent.

don't be selfish and kill RMC just because your kid can't handle discipline la. if they can piss in the toilet, they can clean the damn toilet.

tak boleh tahan, keluar. tu je citernya. please, don't destroy our RMC.

i agree!!!!
name sekolah askar!! tak tahan jangan masuk... kalau dah masuk, kene hell skit tahan la, ini terus nak report parents... if ur children aren't prepared to suffer in order to lead, then dont bother sending ur kids to RMC..
im proud to say that all the 'hell' given to me by both seniors and officers has trained me to be a better person (mentally and physically heheh!). responsibility and respect! all my father(an op himself) did when i reported to him that i kena 'ragged' was laugh and he said dat it was part of the training.
Now,i whole-heartedly agree wit both my father and you sir!
i do not want to see the school that has taught me soo much dissapear and perish..
