SEMPORNA (Bernama): The Education Ministry welcomes constant engagement from the private sector in improving the country's quality of education, says its minister Dr Maszlee Malik.

Dr Maszlee cited the effort by Teach For Malaysia Foundation (TFM) as an example, saying it helped improved English proficiency among students in rural schools such as Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bugaya here.

"We are grateful to the TFM, which provides fellows to come here to teach English.

"TFM has transformed them into bold and confident students. I want more private sector and non-governmental organisations to help in the same way," he told Bernama after a working visit to Semporna Friday (March 8).

Maszlee visited SMK Bugaya, SK Pulau Omadal and SK Pulau Mabul.

During the visit, the ministry agreed to hand over RM100,000 in school maintenance funds to SMK Bugaya and RM50,000 each to SK Pulau Omadal and SK Pulau Mabul.

In addition, Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka donated RM2,000 worth of books to SK Pulau Mabul.

Maszlee was accompanied by Sabah Education and Innovation Minister Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob, Education Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Mohd Ghazali Abas and Sabah State Education Department director Mistirine Radin. - Bernama
