The History Section conducted its first professional development (PD) workshop for the Belait Sixth Form Centre (PTE Belait) on Monday, to enhance participants’ life skills.

Over 50 teachers and school staff participated in the ambuyat-making session, among them PTE Belait Principal Pengiran Hajah Zeiniun binti Pengiran Mudin and Deputy Principal of Administration Haji Shamry bin Haji Mohd Sani. The workshop discussed the local traditional cuisine and its historical impact, its recognition across the nation, the cooking method, and the beliefs passed down for generations.

PTE Belait Senior Mistress of Administration Jasmine binti Jumat said this was the first workshop of its kind to be held, allowing the PTE Belait family to learn together and share the knowledge acquired.
