> A teacher at the Royal Military College in Sungai Besi was moved to tears after his students performed the “sujud syukur” (prostration of gratitude) en masse after finishing their SPM examination, reported Sinar Harian.

The teacher, Hafizi Amran, said students at the college were very disciplined and respectful towards their teachers.

“I felt very touched when I saw that. Students here are very disciplined and it’s easy to care for them.

“When they see us, they will pay us their respects, not like some students nowadays, ” he posted on Facebook last Saturday.

Hafizi also said most students were very focused on answering SPM questions and had refrained from using the toilet throughout the examination.

“We can differentiate between those who respect knowledge and those who don’t. I pray for your success, ” he added.
