Deputy Permanent Secretary (Culture) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Dr Siti Norkhalbi binti Haji Wahsalfelah applauded the Mumtaz programme for providing quality education to the students while emphasising the importance of teachers’ roles in adapting to students’ needs by integrating a more interactive and creative approach in education.
She said this at a convocation ceremony where 74 students who graduated from the programme were feted at the Youth Centre in Bandar Seri Begawan yesterday.
The programme, created by Pengiran Abdul Azim bin Pengiran Yusof of Teachmeguru with the support of the MCYS, is to assist less fortunate students and orphans by providing them with quality education.
Pengiran Abdul Azim said, “All graduates have progressed in their education and improved compared to their previous grades.”
The graduates comprised students from Lambak Kanan Jalan 49 Primary School, Perpindahan Lambak Kanan Jalan 10 Primary School, Haji Mohd Salleh Sungai Hanching Primary School, Dato Basir Primary School, Dato Marsal Primary School and Teachmeguru.
This is the second convocation for the Mumtaz programme since its creation in March 2020.
