KUCHING: Associations in the Mambong area need to work together with parents and students to plan the path that students want to take after completing their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations.
Mambong assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil said that in such a way, the fields that students are interested in can be identified.
At the same time, he said this could help introduce universities for students to pursue studies that suit their interests.
“Education is very important to advance our society. Nevertheless, students need to set targets, and determine their journeys and directions after SPM,” he said while speaking at the presentation of incentives to a total of 44 academic excellence students yesterday.

Therefore, he reminded the incentive recipients to set their goals and dreams to achieve success.
“This incentive is not just for money, it is a message for students to work harder,” he said.
At the same event, Dr Jerip also announced an allocation of RM50,000 for the Kuching Biya Association for them to carry out its annual activities next year.
