Personally, I've took such measures myself. Always prioritize our self-care; should any of us need rest or a break, why would you hesitate? Go ahead take sick leave or medical certificates. Nobody is going to care for you except yourself. While we can't control what others say about us, it's unfortunate if they're unhappy, while they too have the same options. At this point, sacrificing one's life to fulfill the teacher demands and ranking system in MOE schools seems unjustifiable. Life encompasses far more than that.
Hear hear. I totally agree. 👍🏻

Used to believe in the hustle culture, always worked towards that promotion, that grade... Until my health took a hit and I had to see a doc for health matters. Thankfully it was nothing serious, but it affected my life and the stress of health issues compounded on to the existing stress.

Took MC recently as I was sick (fever, sore throat etc) and was bombarded with msgs from the admin staff and also comm members who were eagerly sharing what they did in their respective departments... Simply didn't care or reply to the latter, and for those admin, I made it very explicit that I was sick and I needed rest, and no laptop = no work could be done. They sounded pretty pissed, but that shows a lot about the culture. It's up to us to say no and resist the pressures to perform, to react, otherwise nobody will protect your sanity.

Just checking were you really sick or did you just pay off the doctor to say that you were sick? Asking on behalf of an inquisitive guy earlier in the thread.

Just sharing. I know of a teacher who encouraged the colleagues around him not to tire themselves out and to go home and rest early whenever possible.

Within the next few days, someone reported his words and actions to the Principal and he was called to the principals office for a talk.

Apparently the principal told him that he is not supposed to go around telling others, especially young colleagues, such things, even when he is already a very experienced teacher. He was told that it was a bad example to younger officers.

Not sure what to feel about this.

Fully agree. Its not worth your health. And this kind of culture starts from the top.

I was in a school where the daily msg bombardment was super bad, until I switched school and immediately noticed how different the new place was. Barely any messages outside of work hours or during holiday protected time. All because the principal clamped down hard on it a few years ago.

Hi all, I really would appreciate some answers cos 63206320 doesn't pick up my calls and I wait for their email replies till neck long long...

This 2024 Dec, I will receive my 10 year pay out. I will be on maternity leave from Oct 2024 onwards and the leave should be till Feb 2025. From there, I intend to take 1 year of NPL. May I know if there is a clause saying that you need to stay for a period of time after you collect your pay out, or else, they will take it back from you?
If so, any idea how long that period is?

I hearsay from a colleague that her sis, a GEO 5 had to stay 3 months after taking the pay out. Don't know if that's accurate.
I'm GEO 4 btw.

Any advice would be appreciated..

Thanks!

the only way change would happen is if ppl name and shame the Ps, VPs and HODs. no way can be traced. why not name on a new empty post?

If want to name and shame, be brave enough to put your own name out there. People's lives have been destroyed by false accusations.

Please remember to do your appraisal and ranking properly when the time comes.
