Record recorder display in

THE sweet melody of recorders being played simultaneously by 2,247 primary and secondary school-goers in Perak has made it into the Malaysia Book of Records.  

The performance, involving pupils from the Kinta district, had been planned for several months with the help of 200 music teachers in conjunction with state-level Teachers Day celebrations. 

The children performed two songs, Seruling Bambu and Dikir Puteri for the event.

Malaysia Book of Records representative Irene Liong presented the certificate of participation to Kinta Education Office personnel Abdullah Othman, witnessed by Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali. 

Earlier, Tajol Rosli launched the celebration at the Indera Mulia Stadium, attended by 5,000 teachers and students. 

In his speech, he said Perak would strive to increase its competitiveness with other states in efforts to make it progressive in terms of education. 

“I believe educators can make the state education system resplendent and the government has its own plans to help increase the educational excellence of our students,” he said. 

At the ceremony, Khairuddin Ahmad, 64, was named this year's Perak Tokoh Guru. 

After serving in several state schools from 1963 to 1998, Khairuddin became a lecturer and head of co-curriculum in the matriculation department of Kolej Taj in Sungkai, Perak, 

The father of five also dabbles in writing, publishing, volunteer work and charities, and is active in teachers associations. – Bernama
