eKelas continues to offer opportunities for rural students

Maxis reaching out to students at a roadshow in SMK Sungai Kapar Indah, Klang.

Maxis’ flagship community programme, eKelas, is now providing after-school digital learning to 65,000 students in 1,2000 rural schools.

Recognised as a Highly Immersive Programme by Education Ministry since 2019, eKelas focuses on science, mathematics and English.

It brings fun experiential learning to students from Year 4 to Form 5 through a combination of live tutorials, group sessions, competitions, and other digital content via the portal and app.

It also offers opportunities for students to take part in campaigns like HIP StoryFest as well as STEM competitions.

eKelas’ popular Anugerah Gemilang, a student grant scheme, is back to motivate students by rewarding those who have shown progress at school.

Targeted at Form 1 to Form 5 students, Anugerah Gemilang will be giving out cash grants to up to 100 students.

To qualify for the award, students must achieve a minimum of one-grade improvement in two or all three of the subjects taught in eKelas.

They can submit their final exam results for the previous and current year which entitles them to receive RM600 (previous year) and RM1,200 (current year) for improvements.

The funds will be deposited into the students’ National Education Savings Scheme accounts.

Maxis chief corporate affairs officer Mariam Bevi Batcha said, “We are proud to see the continued growth of eKelas while Anugerah Gemilang has received encouraging submissions in the past. We urge more students to sign up for eKelas now.”

To register for the award, students must complete pre- and post-assessment quizzes on the eKelas portal from now to Dec 31.

They will then need to submit their post-assessment results and applications from March 1 to April 30, 2023.
