Sultan Abdul Hamid College(SAHC)~my Alma Mater

Sultan Abdul Hamid College SAHC aka Kolej Sultan Abdul Hamid KSAH. My Alma mater. Spent 5 wonderful years there. 5 dynamic years of adolescence and growing up away from parents and family. 5 inital years of independence from ' bawah ketiak mak'( under mom's armpits).5 years of joy and sorrow(during year end when classes breaks for long school holidays). Ahhh...those wonderful 5 years. With friends from all over Kedah( and still in touch with some). And to some, it was 5 rebellious years with the authorities( HM, prefect board and hostel master(Ustaz Minhad).

SAHC was initially set up in 1908 and called the Govt English School(GES). Its first building was an old wooden building which was the office of Menteri Besar Wan Md Saman situated between the Balai Nobat and Supreme Court. The first Master was Mr.Mohamad Iskandar, a senior teacher from Penang Free School PFS. He was requested to Kedah to start of GES, the first English school in Kedah( during this time Kedah was still under the Siamese govt). Mr Mohamad Iskandar was the father of our former PM, Tun Dr Mahathir.

School finally started on 8th December 1908( after trying to convince the Malays which refuse due to fear of Christianity) and Mr M.Iskandar was the HM until 1910 after which he resigned due to misunderstanding with the Education Dept( he went back to PFS) and his assistant Mr. Md Salleh became HM.

By mid 1911 due to encouraging enrollment, the GES was moved to a private dwelling house owned by Ku Baharuddin at Jalan Penjara Lama.By 1912 there were 160 students consisting of Malay,Chinese and Indians.The highest standard was Std 4.After that most students continue their education in Penang Free School or MCKK.

The present buildings were built at Tanjong Bendahara in 1915 and completed in 1916. It was formally opened om 1st January 1917 with Mr EAG stuart as the HM( and concurrently the Superitendant of Education. )

Name change: 25th October 1935 GES was officially changed to Sultan Abdul Hamid College(SAHC).

Due to increasing enrollment and students came from outside Alor Setar, a hostel was bulit in August 1928 and was ready in Jan 1930.

The reason why there is a line is because one team is going to be favored over another to win the game. This way the oddsmakers can level the playing field, making the bet attractive to both sides. In this case San Diego is the favorite and New England is the underdog. This means that if you are placing your bet on San Diego, the Chargers will have to beat the Patriots by at least 3 points for you to win the bet. If they lose the game or win by less than 3, you lose your bet. The second number shows 44, which is the over/under score. By betting the over, you are putting money on the possibility that the sum of both team’s score will be greater than 44-points at the end of the game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/

Some of the sports that are being bet online are horse racing, greyhound racing, and football.Online betting works the same with all the betting websites on the net. These businesses have grown for years. You can play with it by using a single account. Some of these websites also offer gambling online, you are just like playing at the casino and you can bet using the same account.

Online sportsbooks cover them all. It's important to establish a bankroll and bet size. Many inexperienced sports bettors don't think about money management and pick an arbitrary bet amount. This strategy is very risky. It's always best to think about your bankroll and pick the right bet size based on your bankroll. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/

`.....we are young collegians all......etc.
The nostalgic feeling and pride of being a collegian is unmeasurable. SAHC is itself an icon recognised worldwide. The exemplary qualities of both SAHC and as a collegian has been very well moulded and instilled onto us by our great teachers right from our very first day we set foot onto the college greens. Both teachers and students alike, we always carry the SAHC spirit in everything we do.
SAHC! SAHC! SAHC!
