rst short pe­titi n in x hs to adapt to speed skat­ing boots and build his prow­ess in the sport.

In the same year, he bagged three gold medals at the Sin­ga­pore Na­tional Speed Skat­ing Com­pe­ti­tion. This achieve­ment con­vinced him to go pro­fes­sional and he has not looked back since.

Be­sides his achieve­ments in speed skat­ing, Khairil is an all­rounder at R.E.A.L Schools, Cheras Cam­pus and will be sit­ting for his Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia ex­am­i­na­tions next month.

He con­stantly faces the chal­lenge of bal­anc­ing stud­ies and sports, but with dis­ci­pline, drive, de­sire and de­ter­mi­na­tion, he man­ages to ex­cel in most of his en­deav­ours.

Since he was in Form 1, teach­ers and fel­low stu­dents have seen the lead­er­ship qual­ity in Khairil.

He was ap­pointed a com­man­der of his po­lice cadet squad for Sports Day three years in a row. He con­tin­ued to sharpen his lead­er­ship skills as a pre­fect and was se­lected to be­come the school’s as­sis­tant head pre­fect this year.

On top of that, Khairil is an ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in his school’s per­form­ing arts pro­gramme and has been cho­sen to be part of the main cast of Cheras Cam­pus’ mu­si­cal pro­duc­tions for four con­sec­u­tive years.

His ded­i­ca­tion and in­ter­est in act­ing and danc­ing have driven him to pur­sue and ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in school plays ev­ery year.

Be­ing in the lime­light through var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties has equipped Khairil to ac­cept any chal­lenges that come his way.

With this mind­set, he has set a per­sonal goal of qual­i­fy­ing for the 2022 Win­ter Olympics in Bei­jing.

Much of Khairil’s suc­cess is down to his strong spirit, heart and mind. How­ever, he is also a proud prod­uct of R.E.A.L Schools’ trans­for­ma­tive learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that, among other things, firmly en­cour­ages stu­dents to pur­sue their pas­sion, dreams and am­bi­tions.

R.E.A.L Schools is a di­verse com­mu­nity of learn­ing that is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion.

There are six schools lo­cated at three cam­puses in Malaysia, of­fer­ing both in­ter­na­tional and na­tional syl­labi at preschool, pri­mary and sec­ondary lev­els.

Dis­cover more about R.E.A.L Schools at the Pri­vate & In­ter­na­tional School Fair this week­end at the Mid Val­ley Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.
