Public School Called Society


The evening had come. Fasting would be ended for a while, maybe for 10 hours. On Saturday, August 13th, 2011, Al Huda Kelor Mosque had been visited by three of 3rd grade Budi Mulia Dua JHS students. They are Ken Husnan Isard, Rivanda Irawan dan Ahmad Faiz Ramadhan. But Ken lived in the same yard with the Mosque’s so it can be said that the guests would be more than three persons.

They want to be Ramadhan Apprentice—school program that is aimed to improve social sensitivity and independency. Its theme is ‘Pertebal Iman dengan Kegiatan Sosial’—Improve Your Faith Through The Social Activities. Apprentice makes the students to be empathy toward life dynamic that exists in our society. As the proverb says— you can forget something you’ve heard; you can be reminded by something you’ve looked; but something you’ve done will make you understand (“kamu dengar kamu lupa, kamu lihat kamu ingat, kamu kerjakan kamu mengerti”).

There are many ways to understand, apprentice is one of them. School improves student’s ability in thinking logically, critically, and analitically. On the other side, society has taught us what the real life means. Both of them are useful for solving the problem. The culture of school and society are different, school for the academic ability and society relates to the knowledge application. Because of that reality, society is called as public school. Its education will never end. Wanna join? We serve its facilities that are equipped with live-in program.

=====================Sekolah Umum bernama Masyarakat =======================

Sabtu 13 Agustus 2011 sore menjelang berbuka puasa. Masjid Al Huda Kelor mendapat kunjungan tamu siswa kelas 9 SMP Budi Mulia Dua. Jumlah tamu ada 3 orang, yaitu: Ken Husnan Isard, Rivanda Irawan dan Ahmad Faiz Ramadhan. Tempat tinggal Ken kebetulan berada satu halaman dengan masjid tersebut. Jadi kalau dibilang tamunya 3 orang tentunya tidak persis 3 orang.

Kehadiran ketiga siswa tersebut adalah untuk magang ramadhan. Magang merupakan program sekolah yang bertujuan melatih kepekaan sosial dan kemandirian. Adapun tema yang diangkat adalah ‘Pertebal Iman dengan Kegiatan Sosial”.

Dengan cara magang, siswa dapat merasakan dan menyelami dinamika yang ada di masyarakat. Pepatah mengatakan “kamu dengar kamu lupa, kamu lihat kamu ingat, kamu kerjakan kamu mengerti”.

Ada banyak cara untuk mengerti, dan magang hanyalah salah satu diantaranya. Maka yang terjadi adalah “sekolah mengasah kemampuan siswa berpikir logis, kritis dan analitis”. Pada sisi lain, masyarakat mengajarkan kehidupan. Keduanya berguna untuk memecahkan masalah.

Tradisi keduanya berbeda. Sekolah mengajarkan tradisi akademis, sedangkan masyarakat dengan realitasnya. Dapat dikatakan bahwa masyarakat merupakan sekolah umum. Tak ada istilah tamat untuk sekolah tersebut…. ada lagi yang berminat? Kami menyediakan fasilitas dengan program live in.
