All school principals must be well informed with government policies

4th April, 2019


KOTA KINABALU: All school principals in Sabah should always be well informed with government policies especially in the education field.

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Mohd Shafie Apdal said there are a lot of government’s policies and initiatives that could bring impact to the education field.

“With good knowledge and deep understanding on the latest government and the education minister’s policies, principals would be able to implement more programmes and thus preparing students to face any challenges in the future.

“For example, schools should activate more STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes in line with the Industrial 4.0.

“Therefore, through the success of the programmes in the schools, it is hope that there will be more jobs opportunities created by our own people, and not to rely solely on jobs provided by the government,” he said.

He said this in his text speech, delivered by Assistant Minister of Education and Innovation Jenifer Lasimbang at the 43rd Sabah Principal Conference at Ming Garden Hotel, on Wednesday.

The conference was attended by 220 school principals around Sabah and Labuan. Also present were Sabah and Labuan Secondary Schools’ Principals Association (PPSMS) president, Kusdi Ribut and Sabah Education Department director, Mistirine Radin.

Shafie stated that principals’ great leadership is needed to motivate teachers in doing their responsibility to develop students, especially in their academics, sports, personality and curriculum.

He added that the government through the Sabah Ministry of Education and Innovation will continue to support principals and to channel funds to fix dilapidated schools around Sabah.

“Our focus now is the rural schools that are in need of new facilities because of their dilapidated condition. “The government will try their best to help despite of financial constraints. If we could not build new school buildings, we will help in other aspects,” he added.

During the event, he also applauded Sabah Ministry of Education and Innovation school average grade (GPS) SPM results which have been increasing steadily every year.
