KUCHING: Students are capable of achieving outstanding examination results if they focus more on their studies instead of the challenges faced.
Sarawak Teachers Union (STU) president Adam Prakash Abdullah, said this had been proved by the recently released Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2020 results.
Thus he hoped that all SPM 2021 teachers and students would continue to utilise home-based teaching and learning strategies through (PdPR), noting this as the new learning alternative until the Covid-19 virus can be contained.
“Teachers must be present on duty to complete their jobs to the best of their ability while the students are reminded to always seek opportunities to succeed rather than just focusing on the obstacles.
“With past experiences and an organised and detailed action plan, we can continue to achieve excellent results,” said Adam.
STU, in a statement yesterday, also extended its heartfelt congratulations to all SPM candidates who have excelled in the SPM 2020.
“Teachers should also be proud because all their hard work throughout PdPR, as well as the challenges they faced, were met with success.
“STU hopes all parents will continuously encourage their children to attend online classes and will have faith in efforts by the teachers in implementing PdPR,” he added.
It is also advisable for the teachers and school administrators to follow the State Education Department (JPN) instructions in order to ensure that the outbreak is handled uniformly, stressed the STU chief.
