This annual event of Gao Yang Xu Association Sibu was a treat to the offspring of the members who excelled in UPSR, PMR, SPM and STPM.
In essence, the awards are a recognition of achievements in academic field at primary and secondary levels. It works wonderfully well in inspiring students to aspire to do better.
I was just average during my school and college days. Whenever academic awards slipped by, I was overwhelmed by feelings of admiration. Subsequently this was turned into a driving force for me to work harder in my academic pursuit.
Back to the awards presentation yesterday morning at the Association's hall, we were delighted that the event was well responded with 47 students being awarded for achieving outstanding results.
This joyous occasion for the deserving students ended with a light refreshment.
