Yayasan Bina Upaya Darul Ridzuan (YBU)-initiated motivational programme for students is making an impact judging from feedback the foundation has received thus far. At a recently concluded programme for Form Five students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Pengkalan, some interesting comments were received. Nurul Syifa Khaisarah, a fifth former who is preparing for the coming Sijil Perperiksaan Malaysia (SPM), was elated that she was picked for the programme.
“It’s most considerate of YBU to conduct such an activity. The benefits are tremendous, especially for students of our background,” she exclaimed. Having little means to receive full-time tuition, the motivational programme was a fitting replacement as it served a purpose – to be in the right frame of mind before an examination. “I’ve nothing but praise for the organisers,” she added.
Nurul hopes the foundation will continue with the activity for the betterment of students. And since the programme has met its objectives, the foundation plans on extending its coverage to include sixth formers. “I’ll give it my best shot,” said Dato’ Zinal Abidin Omar, the Chief Executive Officer of YBU.
