Concerted efforts needed to ensure PdPR success

By Umie Syazwanie Mohd

KOTA SAMARAHAN: The nation’s education system must always be dynamic, progressive, and ever ready to change with the passage of time, says Setia Ken.

The SMK Muara Tuang principal added that educators faced various hurdles and transformations, especially in the implementation of online teaching and learning (PdPR).

“PdPR is something unexpected, and a concerted effort between all parties is required to adapt to current changes and challenges.

“Schools, administrators and teachers need to create a paradigm shift for PdPR implementation, encouraging students to think creatively and innovatively,” she said at a ceremony to recognise the achievements of the school in the Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) 2020, held online on Monday (Aug 30).

Setia also stressed that parents should play a role in contributing to the success of their children, by emphasising continuous learning in school or at home.

“Cooperation between all parties is one of the factors determining success because excellence can be achieved by students, guided as well by teachers.”

On SMK Muara Tuang’s STPM 2020 results, Setia said the school had performed well.

“Our School Average Grade (GPS) increased from 2.66 to 2.85, surpassing the state and national GPS of 2.65 and 2.78 respectively.

“SMK Muara Tuang also has the best results in Samarahan with a 100 per cent passing rate of its students.

“One student scored 4As with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.00.”

Meanwhile, 46 students from a total of 102 achieved a CGPA of 3.00 and above, including 11 who scored a CGPA of between 3.50 and 3.99, while 34 obtained a CGPA of between 3.00 and 3.49.
