393 teach­ers feted at BH event

New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION - And lucky draws.

SUN­GAI PE­TANI: A to­tal of 393 pri­mary and sec­ondary school teach­ers in Perlis, Kedah and Pe­nang were cel­e­brated at a ho­tel here yes­ter­day.

The Sepetang Ber­sama Guru 2018 pro­gramme was held to ap­pre­ci­ate the schools that sub­scribed to Berita Har­ian, specif­i­cally the pub­li­ca­tion’s ed­u­ca­tion pull­outs: Skor, Minda and Didik.

Kedah Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment deputy di­rec­tor Is­mail Oth­man said the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween schools in the state and BH for the past 14 years had helped teach­ers di­ver­sify their teach­ing tools.

“The use of news­pa­pers as a teach­ing aid not only helps teach­ers in de­liv­er­ing their lessons, but also helps stu­dents with their ex­am­i­na­tions.

“News­pa­per, print or dig­i­tal, in­cul­cates the read­ing cul­ture in stu­dents so that they will be more knowl­edge­able about cur­rent af­fairs.”

Present were New Straits Times Press (NSTP) chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer Al­fian Abu Talib, Ed­u­ca­tion Ver­ti­cal Depart­ment gen­eral man­ager Farah Ezrin Mohd Rashidi and News­pa­per Sales and Dis­tri­bu­tion gen­eral man­ager Al­fian Alias.

Is­mail said NSTP’s recog­ni­tion of teach­ers em­pow­ered the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

“I hope other cor­po­rate en­ti­ties em­u­late NSTP’s ini­tia­tives.

“We hope to pro­duce more young peo­ple who are in­de­pen­dent, re­silient when fac­ing chal­lenges and have good char­ac­ter and val­ues.”

Among ac­tiv­i­ties at the event were a fo­rum ti­tled “Akhbar Mem­bantu Me­lahirkan Gen­erasi Ber­ilmu”
