Q: “What is your role in school?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A: “I am the assistant of purchases in the college shop; I help with the purchase of uniforms. I am also the assistant for purchase orders for the admin side. (Q: So, let’s say, if a department needs to order something?) Yes, if a department needs to order books, especially when teachers need to order books, they can order through me; then I will get a quotation, then I will reply to the teachers. If they agree with that, I will proceed with all the quotations.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: “What’s your favourite thing about KTJ after working here for one year?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A: “Here? The students, I guess. They’re quite friendly, and kind, and okay overall.” -Zaza Farinda Hanapi, Purchasing Officer

Q: “Describe your students in three words.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A: “Recalcitrant, lazy, gundu.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: “Can you tell us what made you want to start Christian Fellowship in KTJ?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A: “It’s my purpose in life – my main thing. The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. Teaching is my secondary main thing. My primary main thing is to know Jesus.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: “What is the one thing that you always tell your students?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A: “Do or die.” - Mr Simon Lai Mun Chew, Chemistry Teacher

Q:"Could you tell us a bit about yourself and your role in KTJ?"
.
A:"I joined the school in 1990, early on in the school’s founding. During this time, I was a Mathematics teacher as well as housemistress for Jawahir House. After leaving in 2004 to work in Germany, I returned to KTJ in 2007 and along with teaching Mathematics, I am also now the academic manager of the school. This means that I deal with the schedules of the students and their subject choices."
.
Q:"Given how long you’ve been with the school, what’s the most significant change that you have witnessed?"
.
A:"The school has certainly changed a lot physically. When I came, the auditorium had not been built yet. The second block of classrooms weren’t built yet either. Now, we have the Sixth Form Centre, the Arts Centre, the Arc building, the primary school and the Music, Arts and Design building is coming up soon. Naquiah, Nadzimuddin and Alia Houses were all added on later as well as the rugby pavilions opposite Alia. Other than that, a welcome change was the integration of day students into the houses, as they now participate more in house activities which helps them to bond with their peers. The range of extracurricular activities have also expanded greatly."
.
Q:"What advice would you give to someone coming to KTJ for the first time, either as a student or staff?"
.
A:"For a student I would advise them to participate in as many activities as possible. From inter-house sports competitions and extracurricular activities, students should be exposed to as many things as KTJ can offer. As for incoming staff, I would say that it helps to be open to change, especially in teaching methods. KTJ is always exploring new methods of teaching so it is good for teachers to be flexible and also see how they can constantly improve in how they run their classroom." -Noorsham binti Abd Rashid, Academic Manager

Q: "What kind of person are you?"
.
A: "I’m just a simple person, quite happy-go-lucky and a family man too. I have three children and a happy family."
.
Q: "What do you like the most about KTJ?"
.
A: "The environment, the community, the students, staff, everything. KTJ has something you call the spirit of studying, not the spirit of chasing money. You know the difference? Before this, I used to work in a hotel. There, it was a life of chasing money while the priority here, for me, makes me more comfortable and lets me work happily."
.
Q: "What advice do you have for the students of KTJ?"
.
A: "Just live your life. Follow your journey, and you choose the path. For me, life is about the journey. That’s why I’m here: it’s an inspiration from my heart, what I see as part of my journey, something I haven’t done before. You need to think about it more deeply and wider. Maybe one day you’ll understand what I’m talking about, in this journey of life." - Nuzulamri Said (Abang Amri), Café Diem Manager

Q: "Tell us about yourself."
.
A: “I joined the school in February 28th 1991. I love books, so I applied for a job here at KTJ. I didn’t have a normal childhood because I became an orphan before the age of 3. It was a bit difficult in that part of my life. After I finished my studies, I went to British Council to pursue Library Science and ended up with a job here. I also have a twin. I speak English, Malay, Tamil and Cantonese. I’m a foodie, so if I had not been a librarian I would have been a chef or someone in the food industry. I have anxiety and OCD so I’m a bit particular about how things are placed. Whenever I have things to do, I can be a bit difficult because I want things to go my way since I am a perfectionist. Symmetry is very important for me, so whenever there are meetings, I’ll go up and get things sorted out. I’ll say “No, it has to be like this” because of the OCD. The motto that I follow in life is ‘Simple in virtue and steadfast in duty.’”
.
Q: "What are the two things that you like about KTJ?"
.
A: "One is the camaraderie and the bonding that is very strong here. The other thing is that in the long run when I see students graduating, coming back and doing very well in life, it makes me very happy. In 1992, if I’m not mistaken, only two students went to Oxbridge. Seeing them doing very well now makes me really happy.” - M. Thiagarajah, School Librarian

Q: “I see you in the café quite often. I realise you often just walk up and ask the workers how things are going on.”
.
A: “I just ask the barista what’s happening in order to find out if there are any issues. He recently said that no pies had been delivered. I know the students love pies, so I went to find out why there were no pies, which was because one of the ovens wasn’t working. So I had to speak with Peter, our baker: “Let’s get some pies prepared for the weekend,” which he duly did. I want to make sure that things continue to work, not just in the café, but the whole school. This is a very small example of the types of things I like to do by getting out of my office."
.
Q: “I think that’s very proactive. Usually with that approach you can get things sorted out faster.”
.
A: “Yes, but one of the downsides is that people then rely on that approach rather than using the other channels. So, it’s a balancing act to make sure that you get it right”. - Dr Simon Watson, Principal.
