IN conjunction with Teacher's Day, 25 recipients of Anugerah Guru Inspirasi McDonald’s 2022 were honoured not just for their hard work at elevating the nation's academic excellence, but also in providing access to education for students across Malaysia.

Back for its sixth edition, the annual award is a collaboration between McDonald’s Malaysia and the Education Ministry. Representatives from both organisations, along with the media, make up the panel of judges who sifted through 5,600 public nominations between March 10 and April 2, 2022.

Out of thousands of extraordinary educators, the award recipients stood out through their sacrifice and hard work in going above and beyond to educate and nurture the future leaders of our country.

“McDonald’s had initiated the annual award ceremony to show its commitment in giving back to the communities that they operate in by recognising that teachers play an essential role in the sustainable future of the nation through education,” said McDonald’s Malaysia vice president and chief marketing officer Hajah Melati Abdul Hai.

She opined that every teacher is unique and inspirational.

“We saw an increase in nominations from last year by over 1,200 entries. These heart-warming stories are a testament to the unwavering commitment of teachers in going beyond the call of duty to nurture their students in a holistic manner.

“Students are able to grow as individuals and realise their full potential thanks to teachers. These past two years have not been easy, with pandemic restrictions impacting students’ learning experience,” she said.

She added that the stories read through the nomination submissions since the start of the pandemic reflect the strength of the human spirit, with teachers at the forefront as the driving force of our nation’s education system.

“As we enter the endemic phase, let us not forget the versatility, adaptability and more importantly, the resilience of teachers who showed up and delivered during times of uncertainties,” she added.
