Religious teachers from various private schools in the Belait District convened at Serikandi Restaurant to celebrate Teacher’s Day recently.
Committee members of the Religious Teachers at the Private Schools in Kuala Belait organised the service remembrance ceremony to rekindle ties between retired teachers and those who had moved between schools.
Head of Private School Unit at the Islamic Religious Knowledge (IRK) Department and guest of honour Haji Yahya bin Haji Said was welcomed by ceremony chairman Hardi bin Haji Lamat.
Haji Yahya expressed delight in attending the event, adding that it is important to appreciate teachers who had retired, moved to other schools, as well as those who have passed on.
In a show of appreciation, gifts were presented to selected teachers, among them Hajah Ragimah binti Amat, Hajah Samilah binti Haji Sukor, Haji Hairil Astika bin Haji Tinggal and Zaidillah bin Zainuddin.
