The school's headmistress, Cikgu Hajah Norliha binti Haji Matali delivered the briefing, accompanied by Headmistress Assistant 1, Cikgu Nadiah binti Haji Mohammad Noor.
Students' attendance was the main focus in the briefing. As mentioned by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam in his 2015 New Year's eve Titah for a concerted effort towards achieving National Vision 2035, His Majesty welcomed the Ministry of Education’s plan to implement medium and long term strategies to ensure full student attendance in the classroom, as well as to derive multiplied efficacy in teaching and learning from lower to subsequent levels, setting a high target of at least 90 per cent of students achieving grades A to C in the Primary School Assessment for 2017.
The target was hoped to be able to help all students in primary school level to become more successful in their studies. In doing so, His Majesty said the enforcement of the Compulsory Education Act should be enhanced in a bid to produce a more disciplined and dynamic generation.
The attendance of students, as mentioned in the headmistress's speech, was tracked everyday both by the school and Ministry of Education through the newly implemented administrative system called the iNEIS or Integrated National Education and Information System. The tracking was live online. For any absent student without any given reason from parents, the student's absence could be seen directly by respective MOE officers in their office. The parents would be called on phones regarding the matter especially for students who had been absent for days.
Some parents attending the briefing raised feedback regarding the act on some unfamiliar situations. Questioning and answering session had given positive returns both for the school and the parents thus strengthening the knowledge information about the act.
For parents who need a copy of the briefing on Compulsory Education Act, they can download the copy from the school's blog at srtungku.blogspot.com. The briefing was hoped for the parents to take note positively and seriously on their children's attendance to schools.
