RRSS chief executive officer Datuk Dr Fong Onn Min when commenting on the fine performance said: “RRSS has a unique, comprehensive integrated syllabus embodying those of the national schools (Sekolah Menengah Kerajaan – SMK), the Chinese independent schools (United Examination Certificate – UEC), and international schools.

“Thus, eventhough the students only study one RRSS syllabus, they are able to sit for different examinations.

“I am so pleased with their results. Most RRSS students are all-rounders as the school believes strongly in advocating holistic education for the younger generation.”

Among the school’s top SPM achievers are outstanding squash players, athletes, speakers, Chinese chess player, dancers and others, Fong added in the statement.
