After the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah, the ceremony continued with 10 flag bearers comprising police cadets marching towards the flag pole.
The flag bearers were led by the Deputy Principal of Administration, Cikgu Haji Abdul Aleem bin Haji Abdullah, who handed over the flag to Awang Mawardi, who in turn handed the flag over to a representative of the police cadets.
The national anthem was then sung by all in attendance as the flag was hoisted, followed by a patriotic song called ‘Bendera Negara’ or ‘National Flag’.
