Boys with Mrs Tan

From left, Rosli, Rashid, Mrs Tan, Mat and Hamzah.

Mrs Tan was with us for about a year but she left a deep mark on our hearts. I remember she had to cover many biology syllabus in record time as she was expecting her first child, a few weeks before MCE. I was never interested in that subject (except for the birds and the bees!) but got good grades because of her. She was transferred to Penang, accompanying her husband, who is a doctor. Mrs Tan is a very good graduate teacher from Australia. I remember that some of us love Biology because of her.

There were many 'embarrassing and blushing' moments for gals when she touches the subject on sex, reproduction system, the birds and the bees etc etc. Of course most of us boys love the topic and there were many group discussions about it later on ! I am sure we are all experts on this subject by now ! She even warned us beforehand when teaching the Darwin theory, that it was just a theory.

I think most of us scored good grades in this Biology subject. The last we heard she migrated to Australia and she must be in her mid 50's by now. Anybody knows her full name? Maybe we can do a search and try to track her.
