Bedui Une launches schools’ sports meet

Kuching Divisional Education Officer (PPBK), Bedui Une urged all schools to remain focused in achieving excellence in both academic and co-curricular activities.
He pointed that there might be some reshuffling of education officers in the district but it should not affect the administration of the schools in adverse ways. In fact, he added, changes should be for the better.

“A school as an institution doesn’t change but the way it is administered ought to change for the better towards nurturing quality human capital,” he stressed.

He also said that sports should not be regarded as an annual event alone but an arena whereby athletes, coaches, managers and enthusiasts shared common objectives outlined by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to nurture pupils to become physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually resilient beings.

He spoke as he officiated at the Divisional-level Primary Schools Sports Meet at a mini stadium near here recently. Some 350 athletes from Kuching Zone A and B, Padawan, Lundu and host Bau district participated in the one-day event, organised by Bau District Primary School Sports Council (MSSRDB).

He also urged the athletes to prove their worthiness by breaking and creating more meet records. The event would also select candidates for the state-level sports championship to be held end of March in Kota Samarahan.

Meanwhile, he expressed sadness over poor student discipline citing a secondary school in Oya, Dalat, which involved a case of bullying.

In his welcoming address, Bau District Education Officer, Bihud Apok, urged all athletes to participate in a true spirit of sportsmanship.

“The spirit of sportsmanship must prevail in sports. It should also enhance closer rapport among the athletes,” he said, while adding that winning was not the sole aim.

Bihud also thanked Bedui for his presence, and the Organising Committee for their success in holding the event.

He also thanked SMK Lake and SMK Bau for sending their respective scouts and Red Crescent members to help in the event and Nestle’ Sdn Bhd for supplying free Milo drinks.
Also present were Mohd. Ilahi B. Julaihi, Principal of SMK Bau,Wahap Haji Bujang, Principal of SMK Lake, Jaminah Haji Alias, Principal of SMK Paku, and Padawan District Education Officer’s representative, Tan Joon Chua.
