MIRI: Primary school pupils must be prepared to undergo the process of learning, which is an exciting adventure towards higher-level education.
Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau, who gave this reminder, said they must follow the many stages and obstacles such as walking to school, doing research and sitting for examinations if they want to achieve success.
“There is no short-cut to achieve success in life but we have to follow the process of learning to shine in education,” Dennis said when declaring open the 15th annual sports meet of SK Tudan here yesterday.
Present were SK Tudan headmaster Sabtu Matali, SK Tudan Parents-Teachers Association (PTA) chairman Welington John, vice chairman Albert Bangau Pengarah and councillor Domonic Nyurang.
Continuing on, he advised pupils to focus on their lessons and co-curricular activities and go through the process of primary education as preparation for secondary school and university education.
On the sports meet, he said it is a good platform for pupils to learn to compete and strive to achieve their goals.
“Besides inculcating the spirit of winning, this sports meet is also a good platform to instil the spirit of competition among the pupils,” he pointed out.
The sports day is also a good occasion for parents to meet and mingle with teachers of the school, he added.
Earlier in his speech, the state assemblyman singled out SK Tudan as an example for the people of Sarawak and Malaysia because the school’s staff and teachers are from various races and religions.
At the same occasion, Dennis announced an MRP grant of RM10,000 for the school.
SK Tudan has 1,000 pupils.
