Over 40 former students of Berakas Secondary School (SMB) between 1987-1989 attended a reunion at Z’yan Restaurant, Mangrove Paradise Resort in Kampong Sungai Belukut recently.

The ceremony began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa Selamat led by Pengiran Mat Shah bin Pengiran Haji Bakar.

Event chairperson Mohd Rahimi bin Haji Rahiman said the desire to reunite former students became a reality through social media. The event included a video presentation and distribution of donations in the form of printed ‘Surah Yaasiin’ and ‘Tahlil’ to former students and their families.

The event aimed to strengthen relations between former schoolmates and their families after 32 long years, and to recite Surah Yaasiin, Tahlil and Doa Arwah for those who have passed away.
