Grades of joy

Year 6 cohort of Orang Kaya Setia Bakti Primary School Kilanas looks to the future

Navigating the thrilling shift from the familiar corridors of primary school to the unexplored landscapes of secondary education is a pivotal juncture in each student’s academic journey.

This transition signifies more than a mere change in surroundings; it represents a bold leap into uncharted territories of newfound responsibilities, diverse subjects, and an invaluable opportunity for personal growth.

With the year 2023 concluding, schools across the nation are taking a moment to commend the achievements of their students, with a special spotlight on the Year 6 cohort who recently received their Primary School Assessment (PSR) examination results in November.

Among these, 38 outstanding students from Orang Kaya Setia Bakti (OKSB) Primary School Kilanas,  who are marking the closure of their primary school chapter with a celebration of triumphs and a gaze toward the promising horizons of secondary education.

In recognising the immense dedication of both teachers and students in the lead-up to the examination, Headmistress Siti Norbayu binti Haji Abdul Samad extended her heartfelt appreciation.

While the elusive 5As remained elusive this time, she added, the school showcased a commendable surge in progress, with a stellar 66.67 per cent (24 out of 36 students) securing impressive grades ranging from A to C across all subjects.

This feat is particularly noteworthy as it represents a substantial leap from the previous year, she explained, outshining the overall achievement percentage for primary schools in Cluster 4.

Even more striking is that 80.56 per cent (29 out of 36 students) attained grades spanning from A to D.

This remarkable accomplishment not only underscores the students’ commendable efforts but also reflects the school’s steadfast dedication to nurturing well-rounded academic prowess, continued Siti Norbayu.

Delving into the finer details of academic triumphs, the headmistress highlighted the school’s stellar subject-wise achievements.

A perfect score of 100 per cent was notched in the Melayu Islam Beraja (MIB) subject while Science and English Language followed suit with an impressive 86 per cent, underscoring the school’s prowess in these domains.

Meanwhile, Mathematics and Malay Languages garnered solid scores of 78 per cent each, attesting to the students’ well-rounded proficiency.

Drawing attention to the improvements, the headmistress accentuated a noteworthy four per cent surge in MIB and an impressive 30 per cent boost in Mathematics.

These statistics are good indicators of the school’s unwavering commitment to elevating both the quality and quantity of academic excellence.

Expressing profound gratitude on behalf of the student body, Mohammad Faris Rizqy bin Haji Mohammad Farizul Anuar, also the head prefect for the 2023 batch, conveyed his heartfelt appreciation for the tireless efforts, unwavering guidance, enriching teachings, and dedicated time invested by their teachers throughout the transformative journey from pre-school years to the culmination of Year 6.

As the students stand on the brink of a new academic chapter, he expressed collective hopes that they will persist in making their parents and teachers proud in their upcoming learning environment.

Nur Farrah Rayhanna binti Haji Mustapa’s mother ardently wishes for her daughter’s continued success, believing in her potential to achieve greatness and make everyone proud.

Recognising Farrah’s challenge in Mathematics, the mother enrolled her in a tuition class, resulting in an outstanding PSR performance. As a mother, she consistently motivated and urged Farrah to persist in her efforts, emphasising that rest would come only after the conclusion of the PSR.

“Even before the exam started, I felt the pressure since my elder brother scored 5As in his PSR. Alhamdulillah, I am pleased with my results as I have given my 110 per cent effort into it,” Farrah beamed in delight.

The mother of Aisy Nur Delila also extended her heartfelt gratitude to all the teachers and individuals who have played a role in shaping her daughter into the accomplished individual she is today.
