THEIR stories are about sacrifice and commitment in nurturing their students and for their efforts, they were recognised for being among the nation’s best educators in conjunction with the National Teachers Day celebration held in George Town.

The 25 teachers, recipients of the McDonald’s Malaysia Inspirational Teacher Award were selected because they had gone the extra mile in carrying out their duties, said McDonald’s Malaysia vice president and chief marketing officer Melati Abdul Hai.

She said they were selected from among 7,500 nominations sent in by the public in March.

“The increase in the number of nominations from 1,000 to 7,500 since the award was introduced in 2017 only shows that Malaysians see the importance of appreciating our teachers,” she said.

Education director-general Datuk Dr Amin Senin presented the awards. Each award winner received RM5,000 and a trophy.

Melati invited Malaysians to read the stories of the 25 teachers at bit.ly/mcd-agi2019winners because their stories would encourage and inspire other teachers to help improve the country’s education system.

The Inspirational Teacher Award is a collaboration between the Education Ministry and McDonald’s Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Melati said McDonald’s Malaysia would provide complimentary breakfast vouchers worth RM4.5mil to more than 42,000 teachers in Malaysia in appreciation of their services in educating the children of the nation.

She said teachers could use their respective vouchers to redeem either McChicken or Filet-O-Fish dishes at any McDonald’s restaurant nationwide from May 16 to 20. - Bernama
