SIBU: SMK Sacred Heart here maintained its supremacy in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) results scoreboard, emerging as one of the top schools in Sarawak with a school average grade (GPS) of 2.80 for 2019 with two students obtaining 11A+.
Its principal David Teo Wu revealed the duo to be Dennis Hii Jiun Xiang and Kelvin Ngu Zhu Hao.
The two are among only three students in Sarawak to obtain the prestigious grade.
“Having made its mark in the Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) 2019, of which the results were released last week, the school continues its excellent academic track record with an outstanding achievement in the SPM 2019 results.
“The GPS clearly shows that students are performing well in term of quality. Congratulations and well done,” Teo said, who together with the five outstanding students were in Kuching today to receive the SPM excellence award from Sarawak education director Dr Azhar Ahmad.
The five were Dennis, Kelvin, Eric Alston Tang Ing Dong (11A), Vincent Lau Jian Liang (11A) and Bryan Lim Kien Seng (10A), he said.
In 2018, the school obtained a GPS of 2.65 and 2.98 in 2017 for SPM.
Additionally, the principal noted that 12 subjects had scored a 100 per cent passing rate, while all subjects scored at least a 90 per cent passing rate.
This clearly shows that the school is also performing in term of quantity, Teo pointed out.
He attributed the school’s excellent results to the hard work and consistent efforts of all the teachers, students and parents.
