    Meanwhile, 10 students who obtained excellent results in the Primary School Assessment Examination received BND500 each under the scheme.

    BIBD Deputy Managing Director Irwan bin Lamit along with BIBD senior management were present.

    Acting Director of Social Services at the MCYS Hajah Noridah binti Haji Abdul Hamid and senior officials from the ministry also attended.

    The Excellent Students Incentive Award Scheme is part of the nank’s dedication to being a Partner in Progress and give back to the community.

    In past years, the presentation of rewards under the scheme was carried out concurrently with the National Level Orphans Donation Presentation Ceremony. However, in view of COVID-19, this year’s ceremony was held separately.
