Religious schools to gain from digitalisation initiative

JOHOR government-owned Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor Sdn Bhd (KPRJ) hopes to produce more future leaders with values through its digitalisation programme in sekolah agama (Islamic religious schools) in the state.

KPRJ chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Noorazam Osman said the company had so far adopted 30 religious schools in Johor since 2018 under its corporate social responsibility initiative called KPRJ-HOPE.

“The programme is part of our KPRJ-HOPE initiative, where we help students at religious schools access gadgets that can help enhance the learning process.

“For the school adoption programme, each school is given a one-off aid worth RM15,000 for them to organise soft skills training for the students in line with current curriculum and religious teachings, ” he said when contacted in Johor Baru.

The soft skills training include a leadership module called Da’i Junior, English public speaking, Islamic fashion and a colouring contest.

“KPRJ has been appointed as the main developer for the Sekolah Agama Kerajaan Johor development project and at the same time, we hope to do more than just provide better learning facilities for students.

“One of our aims is to see religious teaching conducted in a fun and conducive manner and produce students with high intellect and moral values.

“Last year, we adopted another nine schools under our programme in three districts – Kulai, Pontian and Johor Baru, ” said Noorazam. — By REMAR NORDIN
