IMMERSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR 300
Sessions jointly organised by Media Prima and Felcra Foundation
LIVELY sessions at the “Seminar Kecemerlangan Peperiksaan 2017” has led to an immersive learning experience for 300 students who will sit the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) and Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations soon.
Held at Pendang Lake Resort in Kedah, the two-day programme, which ended yesterday, was jointly organised by Media Prima Bhd and Felcra Foundation.
It saw the participation of students from 34 schools in Penang, Kedah and Perlis, in sessions facilitated by teachers and academic experts.
A Year Six pupil from SK Sungai Pinang in Penang, Fatimah Azzahra Mohamad Khairil, said the seminar had helped her understand what she should focus on when preparing for the UPSR.
“I learnt tips and techniques that I could use to answer the questions. I scored 4As and 2Bs in the trial examination. I hope to score straight As for UPSR,” she said.
Mohamad Nuriman Saidin, 17, from Tasek Gelugor Penang said the seminar helped him better understand the subjects explained by the teachers.
“I was worried about the History paper since I need to memorise a lot of facts. But the teachers at the seminar shared a technique that I could use to recall the facts I have read,” he said, adding that the seminar had boosted his confidence to sit the SPM in November.
Felcra Foundation executive secretary Hashimudin Hashim said the seminar was the ninth since April.
“A total of 2,892 children of Felcra smallholders’ families had joined the seminar. Our aim is to provide guidance and motivation to the students.
“It is also part of our commitment to help children from lowincome families to excel in their studies.”
State Information, Rural Development and Poverty Eradication Committee chairman Datuk Tajuddin Abdullah, who closed the seminar yesterday, urged students to make good use of the knowledge gained from the seminar.
“This seminar is a good chance for the students to improve their knowledge and be more prepared for the examinations.”
