KOTA KINABALU: SRK Sacred Heart has received a RM100,000 grant to upgrade its school facilities.
The all boys’ mission school received the grant by deputy chief minister Datuk Christine Liew when she officiated the school’s annual excellence award ceremony.
She said schools were where children get their education and learn new things as well as a place where they spend half their day in.
“I hope this grant will more or less make the pupils’ study environment more comfortable,” she said.
Liew also congratulated pupils who were given awards for various achievements in their studies and co-curricular activities, and the same time urged those who did not get anything to not give up.
“Your days ahead are still long and studying is a continuous journey, do not give up but continue to do your best in life,” she said.
The Api-Api assemblyman also advised those with excellent performance in school to continue giving their best.
School headmaster Tony Ong said the grant boost would help improve their facilities and hopefully, encourage pupils to be more willing to go to school and study properly.
“A school with good facilities serves as morale booster for students and it affects their studies and other activities,” he said.
He also urged primary six pupils to prepare themselves for their next level of battle as they enter secondary school next year.
He asked them to remember what Sacred Heart school has taught them and to keep striving for the best in life, be people of principal and good values.
Meanwhile, the excellence awards ceremony saw over hundreds of pupils from primary one to six get awards.
The awards include academic performance awards, co-curricular activities awards and model student prize among others.
