Teacher uses magic tricks to get students interested in subject
Getting students interested in their physics lessons is not an issue for Mr Mohamed Ashiq Mohamed Elias.
Not that the 34-year-old is using his role as the discipline master at Pasir Ris Secondary School to scare students into paying attention.
