Giving advice for the exams, Nur Syarah Basirah binti Yahya from Keriam Religious School, one of the award recipients, said, “In order to achieve good results in the examinations, a student must be diligent and disciplined in their studies, and study their subjects at home. It is equally important to listen to the teachers not just in class but also what they tell us to do at home as well.”

She said she loves studying at her school as her teachers “are kind and helpful, and make us laugh”, even though “they can be tough at times”. She singled out Mazmewati binti Mazali – the headmistress of her school – as one of her favourite teachers.

“I love to listen to Cikgu Mazmewati because her words are always very encouraging and uplifting. She is inspiring because she is always there for the students and very hands-on in her handling of school affairs,” Nur Syarah Basirah added.
