SANDAKAN: SK Mawar’s excellent UPSR results announced on Monday are due to the cooperation of all parties, especially the parents and the school
Its principal Ngatila Suratman said although teachers were responsible to educate the children, the responsibility would not run smoothly without the cooperation of the parents.
“The teachers can only educate and guide their students in the school. But while at home, parents play an important role to focus on the development of the children’s education,” she said at the presentation of awards to 4A and 5A students of SK Mawar last Tuesday.
According to Ngatila, SK Mawar’s student excellence is evident when the number of students who passed UPSR 2012 rose to 60, compared to the previous year.
She said the school, and especially the teachers who taught Primary Six students were always planning strategies and implementing programs to help students face public examinations.
“Coupled with moral support and stimulation from parents through the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), it is possible our students will continue to have success not only in UPSR, but also in the years to come,” she said.
SK Mawar recorded a 76.9 per cent pass rate in UPSR 2012 compared to 64.9 per cent in the previous year.
At the event, five students including Farhah Anisah Roslan, Mohd Zulhilmi Juani, Nur Syazwanie Nirwan, Ryan Keith Tan and Zulaikha Khairul Anuar received RM500 each as a token of success for getting 5As.
Meanwhile, four other students who obtained 4As, namely Sharilyn Alden, Muhammad Fitri Nasruddin Hafil, Azhar Azraie Aiman and Aiman Muhammad Nazmi Nordin also received consolation prizes delivered by SK Mawar PTA deputy president Awang Haji Liwangsa Aspar.
