To do well in any subject you must be able to think correctly! Thinking skills are something you can learn and develop. Ask yourself questions as you read your textbooks and notes. Talk to other students whom you notice have good thinking skills. You can also sharpen your thinking skills by taking IQ tests available in books or the Internet, or playing games that require thinking such as word games.

TAWAU, May 12 (Bernama) -- The 'School in Hospital' (SIH) programme will continue to provide education to students who are warded in hospitals to prevent them from being left behind in their studies, said Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching.

Mary Yap, who is also Tawau Member of Parliament, said the programme under the Ministry of Education, was among the government's initiatives to ensure that no students would be left behind in their studies due to their health problems.

"Specially trained teachers are placed at SIH to teach those students using certain methods and activities," she told reporters after visiting the SIH at Tawau Hospital here today.

The Tawau SIH, which was set up in 2015, now has six teachers and two assistant teachers with eight students aged between six and 14.

Following the encouraging response from parents who saw that their children could still excel despite being ill, Mary Yap said the SIH programme could be extended to other hospitals in Sabah.
