RIMBA Secondary School welcomed its Year 7 students at the school’s orientation programme at its Collaborative Hall recently.

The event began with an opening address by Principal Haji Malai Shah Eran bin Syed Haji Yussof Al-Idrus.

He congratulated students on their recent Primay School Assessment (PSR) examinations success and hoped that they will continue to work hard.

He said 177 new students were accepted into Year 7 classes, and the school has always maintained its focus that the number of students per class does not exceed the acceptable limit.

This is to ensure the quality and standards of education with the prime focus on giving the students the attention they require, he added.

He also urged the students to respect their teachers and to fully concentrate on the subject matter in classes.

He urged parents and guardians to be involved in their children’s studies and activities in school, as this will help all parties in achieving the goals for the future.

There was also a brief address by the Chairman of Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) Haji Abdul Ghani bin Haji Md Tahir.

This was followed by important briefings from Senior Academic Teacher Zuraini binti Haji Zainal Abidin and Head Registrar Teo Li Keh.
