Let’s show appreciation for teachers

Anugerah Guru Inspirasi McDonald’s (April 2-18) returns for the 5th year to pay tribute to inspiring teachers

WE have our favourite teachers back in school. We remember them for their dedication and kindness, their efforts to make something out of us even after we have we disappointed or annoyed them over and over again.

As a tribute to the people who shape future generation to be stalwarts of society and pillars of the community, Anugerah Guru Inspirasi (AGI) McDonald’s returns for its fifth year to celebrate extraordinary teachers who have gone beyond the call of duty in nurturing students.

Beginning tomorrow, AGI is calling for Malaysians to submit their nominations and share stories about the teachers who have given their 100% in educating, shaping and inspiring you.

McDonald’s Malaysia through AGI is continuing its mission to shine a spotlight on these teachers and is rewarding them for their passion and hard work in educating the next generation.

AGI will select 25 teachers as winners who will receive cash prizes worth RM5,000 while Malaysians who submit the winning nominations will also receive RM200 worth of McDonald’s gift vouchers as a token of appreciation.

Since its inception in 2017, AGI has received more than 17,000 submissions with over 81 notable teachers awarded nationwide.

This McDonald’s flagship initiative seeks to show appreciation towards teachers for going above and beyond their call of duty. McDonald’s wants to honour the teachers who have not only guided students academically, but also fostered minds and developed various skills through respect and care.

“In the past year, teachers all over Malaysia have quickly adapted and shown ingenuity, resilience and strength as they navigate through these unprecedented times, ” said Azmir Jaafar, McDonald’s Malaysia managing director and local operating partner.

“They have gone above and beyond their duty as teachers, so in recognition of their passion and effort, we want to continue celebrating them in our fifth Anugerah Guru Inspirasi.

“McDonald’s Malaysia is committed to making sure teachers know they are appreciated and we thank them for making a positive difference in the lives of their students. A teacher has arguably one of the most important roles in society as they mould young minds.”

Azmir added: “Since the pandemic, their roles have become more prominent with the challenges faced during the transition to online learning.

“Some of these inspiring stories have showcased their dedication in nurturing students and we hope to hear more of their incredible efforts.

“To make sure their sacrifices do not go unnoticed, we are inviting students, parents and teaching fraternities to join us in nominating a teacher for an Anugerah Guru Inspirasi Award.”
