New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Twenty-one stu­dents from around the coun­try re­ceived the Berita Harian Ex­cel­lent Stu­dents Award (APCBH) 2016 yes­ter­day.

In­tro­duced in 2007, the awards were di­vided into three cat­e­gories: Ujian Pen­ca­pa­ian Seko­lah Ren­dah (UPSR), Pen­tak­siran Tingkatan Tiga (PT3) and Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia (SPM).

Seven re­cip­i­ents in each cat­e­gory took home RM1,000, a tro­phy, cer­tifi­cates and ad­di­tional prizes.

The awards were pre­sented by New Straits Times Press chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Ab­dul Jalil Hamid.

Jalil said APCBH 2016 was to com­mem­o­rate the stu­dents who took part in BH’s ed­u­ca­tion clin­ics, sem­i­nars and work­shops last year.

“APCBH recog­nises par­tic­i­pants of those pro­grammes who had achieved ex­cel­lent re­sults in their UPSR, PT3 and SPM ex­am­i­na­tions. It also aims at en­cour­ag­ing stu­dents to keep work­ing hard in their stud­ies and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.”

BH or­gan­ised 223 sem­i­nars last year, ben­e­fit­ing 60,000 UPSR, PT3 and SPM can­di­dates.

With more than 200 par­tic­i­pants, APCBH 2016 was in line with the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry’s goal of pro­duc­ing high-achiev­ing stu­dents. New cat­e­gories were also in­tro­duced.

The BH Ex­cel­lent School (Aca­demic) award went to SM Agama Kuala Lumpur. The sports cat­e­gory award went to SM Ban­dar Bant­ing.

SMK Datuk Abu Bakar Baginda took home the BH Ex­cel­lent School (Ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar) award.

Il­ham Is­mail from SK Ta­man Rint­ing 2 Pasir Gu­dang was named APCBH 2016’s cre­ative ed­u­ca­tor.

He took home RM2,500.

The Ba­hasa Malaysia teacher said he had his Year Five and Six pupils re­pro­duce what they had learned from BH’s Didik pullout.

“This award was my stu­dents’ ef­forts as much as mine.”
