Cikgu Aminah teaches preschool class in SK TanahAbang, Mersing. She hails from the west coast of peninsular Malaysia. The school is approximately 100km from the small town of Mersing at the South-east of peninsular Malaysia. She has been teaching in this school for 3 years. Her students are 100% orang asli and stays in the orang asli villages around. The
government has helped set up these villages equipped with water and electricity supply as well as roads.

Though some of the parents works in the plantation, many still depends on the jungle for their livelihood, a lifestyle passed down from generations, which they find it difficult to give up. The parents are mainly illiterate. However more of them realise the importance of education for their kids now compare to 10 years ago. Cikgu Aminah looks forward to seeing her students every day, they are an enthusiastic lot and takes great delight in things in the nature.

Cikgu Aminah’s class attendance is good, most of her students come to school daily, but the other classes in this school are not so lucky, many do not come to school regularly, some children would follow their parents to the jungle for 2-3 months in search of rattan and food.

Generally, orang asli do not like formal kind of teaching and learning, the preschool curriculum attracts them due to the thematic approach and non-formal atmosphere where students have more freedom to move about in the classroom. In order to attract them to school the Ministry of Education has formulated an adjusted curriculum and modules for the lower primary orang asli school.

The curriculum taps on the methodology used in preschools where modules are used and parents are invited to school to participate. Food
is provided during these activities and food such as flour and bread are distributed to these children and parents after the activities. This is important as ‘one day without work’ means ‘one day without food supply’. With the implementation of these modules more orang asli children are attending schools regularly.
