FOUR children of _Cawangan B2 _and Pekerti B2 received donations in the form of school stationery from the Airport Police Unit, Royal Brunei Police Force yesterday, to help ready them for next year’s school term.

The children live in single mother households where their fathers were part of the Airport Police Unit, but have passed away.

Thirteen year old Sekolah Tinggi Perempuan Raja Isteri (STPRI) student Norhamimah Anak Baying, told _The Brunei Times _her father was a former Traffic officer.

She now lives with her police officer mother and older sister.

Siblings Md Adib Mihazzab Mastani and Farahiyah Mastani, also live with their mother who works as a police officer under the Airport Police Unit.

Farahiyah said “I like English because my teacher said I’m good at it. With the new stationery, I think I can be even better.”

Unlike his younger sister, Md Adib commented he “likes MIB more than English because everyone must know it and it is important to learn.”

Sayyidina Ali Secondary School (SMSA) student Nurul Basyirah Asnan is 13 years old and lives with her mother, grandparents and five siblings, said in an interview that she “likes Maths because of the calculations; the gifts they gave us are very nice because we get to use them for school to learn better.”

She added that she would want to pursue to teach the Mathematics “when I grow up.”

All four children said that they “enjoy studying and learning new things at school”.
