Saturday, February 3 marked a glorious day for students, parents, and teachers of SMK Seri Keledang, Menglembu as it was the school’s annual Speech Day. The event, along with the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting, was held at the school hall.

It was officiated by Batu Gajah Barisan Nasional Division Chairman, Dato’ Wira Hj Mohd Yusoff bin Kassim. Mohd Yusoff thanked the school and the parent-teacher association for their efforts in improving the quality of education of the school and urged them to continue with their good deeds.

Armed with the knowledge that they have acquired, students will be able to excel academically and, in the future, contribute to society and the country as a whole.

Principal, Sit Wai Yin, and PTA Chairman for 2017/2018 Session, Ng Ah Chye, expressed their gratitude to the guest of honour for his donation of RM10 000 to the school. They also thanked students and teachers for their passion in bringing up the name of the school.

Ipoh Echo interviewed three top students, Lim Yun Qi,16, Chung Qiao Lin,16, and Chee Qiao Yi, 15.

All three welcomed the recognition accorded to them. When asked what contributed to their success, they said, in unison, that their teachers played a vital role in inspiring them by organising extra classes and preparing them for their exams.

With Seri Keledang Secondary School making the headlines, it is hoped that the awards will encourage more students, teachers and parents to continue contributing to the school. Their well-meaning efforts will be long remembered.
