IN OUR news item “BIBD launches 5th Home Showcase”, published yesterday, the 11th paragraph should have correctly read: “BIBD also acknowledges the importance of owning a home at a younger age as they are able to take up the maximum repayment of 25 years, added with a lower monthly repayment, as opposed to owning a home at a later age with an increased monthly repayment”, and not as stated. The error is regretted.
TEACHERS are the main source of quality education, and the stimulus for the country’s human resources productivity.
This was stated yesterday by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, during a titah at the 26th Teacher’s Day celebration at the International Convention Centre (ICC), in Berakas.
Describing them as the ‘agents of education’, His Majesty called on all teachers to boost their knowledge, skills and ideas, in view of their significant role.
