MUKAH: The Tegas Project of Dream Realised (Pro-DR) Roadshow has helped SPM and STPM school leavers plan their future based on their interest and academic qualifications.
Balingian assemblyman Abdul Yakub Arbi said based on the Tabung Gagasan Anak Bumiputera Sarawak (Tegas) experience in organising the roadshow, it was found that some students with good academic results could not decide what courses they wanted to pursue.
He added, “If this kind of situation continues, it might be a loss to Sarawak because youth talents cannot be fully developed.
“Because of that, Tegas has, since 2015, organised the roadshow annually until this year,” he said yesterday.
Dalat and Mukah District Council councillor Aimie Kaliew represented him and also read his text of speech at the launch of the roadshow at Dewan Suarah Mesra here.
Abdul Yakub, who is also Tegas Trustee Board member, advised students coming to the roadshow to fully utilise the opportunity available.
The roadshow began in Lundu on Feb 24 and will end in Limbang on March 16. It covers 14 locations statewide and involves some 45 educational institutions as well as education-related bodies.
Tegas Outreach Programme manager Fredick Kevin Buseli who represented Tegas chief executive officer, Sarawak administrative officer Ismail Kasah who represented Mukah Division Resident, Mukah District officer Shafrie Saili and Mohd Shafeeq Abdullah who represented Mukah District Education officer also attended the event.
