History

Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman (or more commonly known as STAR) is a public fully-residential school in Malaysia fully funded by the Government of Malaysia. Named after the first King of the Federation of Malaya, Almarhum Seri Paduka Baginda Tuanku Abdul Rahman ibni Almarhum Tuanku Muhammad, it is located in Ipoh, Perak. The school initially started at an army camp in "Baeza Avenue" (now known as Jalan Hospital). Formerly known as Malay Secondary School, this all-boys school was built by the Malayan government in 1957 to uplift the educational status of Malays in Malaya.

Sekolah Bestari

Sekolah bestari merupakan satu konsep sekolah di Malaysia. Konsep ini akan membawa kepada pendemokrasian pendidikan sepenuhnya. Sekolah ini bukan hanya untuk mereka yang pintar tetapi ia merupakan cara bestari bagi menjamin setiap pelajar - kuat atau lemah, kaya atau miskin - mencapai potensi sepenuhnya dalam cara yang paling sesuai mengikut kadar dan gaya pembelajaran yang berlainan. Teknologi komputer akan membolehkan kepelbagaian dibina dalam sistem pendidikan.

Pada peringkat permulaan, empat mata pelajaran, iaitu Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Inggeris, Matematik dan Sains, akan diperkenalkan di Sekolah Bestari dengan menggunakan teknolgi terkini sebagai kaedah dan teknik pengajaran dan pembelajaran. Semua bahan pengajaran dan pembelajaran disediakan dalam bentuk perisian yang direka oleh Pusat Pemkembangan Kurikulum bersama dengan Bahagian Teknolohi Pendidikan, Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia.

Untuk menentukan kejayaan pelaksanaan konsep Sekolah Bestari, guru-guru di sekolah yang dipilih menjadi sekolah bestari, akan diberi latihan dalam perkhidmatan, khasnya dalam bidang pedagogi untuk aktiviti pengajaran dan pembelajaran melalui penggunaan teknologi terkini. Bagi sekolah-sekolah bestari yang ditubuhkan, tenaga pengajar dan pentadbirnya akan dipilih oleh Ketua Pasukan Bertugas Sekolahh Bestari di bawah Bahagian Sekolah, Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia.

Perkembangan Sekolah Bestari telah menjadi satu arah-aliran dalam perkembangan pendidikan yang tidak dapat dielakkan dalam reformasi pendidikan di Malaysia. Sekolah Bestari ini merupakan sekolah satu-satunya dapat melahirkan pelajar-pelajar yang cerdik dan berpengetahuan, dan dijangkakan akan mampu bersaing apabila menghadapi cabaran-cabaran Wawasan Negara.

Briged Bestari

Briged bestari adalah salah satu bukti yang mengatakan sekolah itu adalah sekolah Bestari.Di sekolah ini Briged bestari ditubuhkan pada tahun 2006.Preesident bagi Briged Bestari pada tahun 2007 ialah Saudara Fikri Rahmat Bin Mohammed Fauzi.STARIAN037.

House Spirit

Currently students from form 1 to form 5 attend STAR. Previously there were classes up to form 6, but later the ministry of education only allowed up to form 5 for the boarding school. Originally, students were accommodated in hostels based on their "houses". These houses are designated with colours. There are 6 house colours, which are Rumah Hijau (Green House), Rumah Biru (Blue House), Rumah Hitam (Black House), Rumah Merah (Red House), Rumah Putih (White House), Rumah Kuning (Yellow House) to identify their affiliations for competitive purposes (sports, competitions).

Currently students are grouped together in dormitories according to houses but not in the original blocks. The old Green House block was converted into a library and the old Yellow House Block into a store.

Recently,the houses are called by nicknames such as Royal Blue, Green Grinds, Black Kingdom, Red Rouser, White Vigour and Yellow Legion though these nicknames are quite fluid and evolve from time to time. For example, in the past Green went by the nickname Evergreen, Yellow by Yellow Dragon, Black by Black Label, and others.

Routine

Classes, self-study, activities for clubs and societies, games and physical exercises were mandatory for every student according to the allotted days and times. The boys daily life was “ruled by the siren”. It would start with a wake-up siren at 5.30 in the morning, followed by the sound of familiar voice (the warden) waking us for the Subuh prayer, with the final siren for lights-off at 11.30 p.m and sleep at night. Further is the timetable that the Starian routinely do everyday, which only different for weekends.

Kerna ILMU PANDUAN HIDUP.

Cheer Songs

Cheer songs are unique and part of the well-guarded tradition of the school. Basically the cheers are sung to support the school team in various sports (usually in football and rugby). The cheers are a compilation of catchy songs in malay and English. The cheers are always led by one or more cheerleaders, who are final year seniors.

Hope

All the teachers and students in this beloved and wonderful Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Ipoh are working very hard towards the best ever achievement since this school was opened about 50 years ago. Do you know that the year 2006 was the most fantastic and tremendously exciting moment for the teachers and STARIANs especially? This is because Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Ipoh was announced as the no.1 school with the best ever performances for the Penilaian Menengah Rendah(PMR). There were about 117 out of 127 students who scored all A's in all eight subjects.

As we know, if we want to be successful in anything that we participate in, we have to fix our main goal and work very hard and smartly towards achieving that goal. This philosophy is always practiced by teachers and students in Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Ipoh. The journey and adventure is still flowing as this school will be celebrating its 50 years of establishment, similar to the age of the beloved country, Malaysia which will be also celebrating its birthday on 31st August 2007.

The responsibility to ensure the successful journey of the school now relies on the STARIANS themselves. Although, some of them are not able to suit themselves in this situation, they have to be proud of themselves as they are now able to live as a big happy family- studying and living together in the same area- That's what we want. Courage and positive - thinking attitude will be always in their mind. Ilmu Panduan Hidup!
