Warm welcome for new students

Meragang Sixth Form Centre (PTEM) welcomed 350 new students last week in a three-day orientation.

Activities included lectures by the heads of department and talks covering issues such as mental health, AIDS, teen pregnancy, ‘Sleep and Diet’ by representatives from the Health Promotion Centre and ‘Sexual Assault’ by Women Brunei Darussalam.

Acting PTEM Principal Moss bin Mat Juni said the school’s hope is for its students to realise their physical and spiritual potential on top of academic excellence.

He said the school prioritises the welfare and safety of all its members and that the students should feel free to approach the administration if they are in need of any assistance and support.

The orientation concluded with activities organised by PTEM’s Student Council members.

The sixth form centre now has 604 students.
