A media release yesteday said the workshop – part of the iM Sarawak School Improvement Project – is a three-year programme for the three schools.

It was geared towards equipping participants with the necessary answering techniques and strategies to to achieve high marks in their examination.

The workshop also aimed to familiarise participants with styles of the latest UPSR questions, expose them to effective revision methods, and to improve the UPSR passing rate and overall academic performance in the three participating schools.

During the workshop, which covered all subjects for the UPSR examination, participants attended motivational talks, were taught effective study methods, received guidance on building self-discipline, and practised answering UPSR model examination questions.

Into its second year, the iM Sarawak School Improvement Project, which aims to elevate English language proficiency and improve the overall UPSR passing rate for the schools, saw very encouraging results in its first year.

This was evident in last year’s UPSR results, where all three participating schools saw a remarkable increase in overall passing rates.

The most significant progress was seen in SK Nanga Kota, where its passing rate improved from 38 per cent in 2015 to an impressive 100 per cent in 2016.

SK Nanga Dayu and SK Nanga Kara saw their passing rates increase by 19 percentage points and three percentage points, respectively.

Julau MP Datuk Joseph Salang, who is chairman of 1Malaysia Sarawak Advisory Council, said: “I am very happy to see such good results from the iM Sarawak School Improvement Project, and we hope to build on the momentum of its success.”

“We at iM Sarawak firmly believe that education is the key to a better future for our communities. Other than the annual UPSR workshop, iM Sarawak has also provided reference books, UPSR model question workbooks, story books, teaching aids or tools, such as projectors, laptops and photocopy machines to the schools.

“All these were meant to facilitate the teaching and learning in these three schools,” he added.

Salang, who was the guest-of-honour at the certificate presentation ceremony, hoped that participants would be able to apply the skills they had learnt at the workshop to excel in other examinations and life in general.

The iM Sarawak School Improvement Project is carried out in collaboration with the State Education Department and the Julau District Education Office.
