KUCH­ING: Par­ents, teach­ers and the com­mu­nity need to work as a team to en­sure chil­dren are suc­cess­ful in academics, ac­tive in co-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, have good per­son­al­i­ties and can in­ter­act with peo­ple.

Fazrudin Ab­dul Rah­man who is political sec­re­tary to the works min­is­ter said this at the SMK Pe­tra Jaya ex­cel­lence award pre­sen­ta­tion at the school hall yes­ter­day.

“Ev­ery­one has to come to­gether with a strat­egy to achieve this goal. To the chil­dren, this is just the first phase and there are more hur­dles to over­come in life. Work hard and don’t for­get to pray for suc­cess,” he said.

“We want our chil­dren to not only be smart, but able to com­mu­ni­cate and so­cialise.”

He said this was be­cause stu­dents of to­day face more chal­lenges with good aca­demic re­sults and in­volve­ment in cocur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties as re­quire­ments to en­ter univer­si­ties.

He praised the school’s par­ent-teacher as­so­ci­a­tion for bring­ing in parental in­put in dis­cussing the strat­egy to pro­duce all­rounded in­di­vid­u­als.

Once the strat­egy is iden­ti­fied, he hopes ev­ery­one will stick to it.

School prin­ci­pal Awang Daud Awang Le­hin said sup­port­ive par­ents col­lab­o­rate with the school to mo­ti­vate stu­dents to ad­vance them­selves in var­i­ous fields.

He is open to feed­back and crit­i­cisms that en­able im­prove­ments.

“I thank ev­ery­one who has helped and co­op­er­ated in im­ple­ment­ing the var­i­ous school pro­grammes. We hope for im­prove­ments in terms of cur­ricu­lum, co-cur­ricu­lum and stu­dent per­son­al­ity.”

On the school’s achieve­ments, he said SMK Pe­tra Jaya achieved 4.07 in cu­mu­la­tive grade point av­er­age (CGPA) for PT3 com­pared to 4.58 pre­vi­ously, and all sub­jects have im­proved ex­cept for English.

In the Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia 2015 re­sult, the school pro­duced two straightA stu­dents as there were no 10A stu­dent the pre­vi­ous year, and 14 stu­dents achieved 5As and above.

In the Si­jil Tinggi Pe­la­jaran Malaysia, the CGPA has in­creased from 2.25 in 2014 to 2.26 in 2015.

In co-cur­ricu­lum, the school’s three uni­formed bod­ies have par­tic­i­pated in divi­sion, state, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional level com­pe­ti­tions. The school’s ca­noe team was placed se­cond at the na­tional level cham­pi­onship last year.

Seven stu­dents achieved 6As for PT3: Ah­mad Adli Hakimi Ali, Farah Hanisah Yu­sop@Yusuf, Polly Chong Yun Fun, Sudipa Chakraverty, Mais­arah Nas­rin Aina Ibrahim, Da­nia Er­ris­sya Is­mail and Dayang Nurin Atasha Awang Se­bli.
