THIRTY-SIX students of Lambak Jalan Bedil Religious School (SULJB) were celebrated recently for their outstanding academic performance completing the Certificate of Religious School Examination (SSSRU) last year.

Held at the multi-purpose of the school last Thursday, the event started with the recital of Surah Al-Fatihah and its Malay translation by Year 2 and 3 students.

In her welcoming remarks, Dk Hjh Jurinah Pg Hj Sabtu, school principal as the event chairperson shared that the event was aimed to honour students and to celebrate the school’s 100 per cent passing rate for the examination.

The principal also acknowledged the hard work of the school’s teaching staff and hoped that the 100 per cent passing rate would be maintained in the coming years.

Present as the guest of honour was Ustazah Hjh Ruzaiha Hj Abd Halim, Assistant Islamic Education Officer for Brunei Zone IIA, Islamic Education Department (JPI).

The highlight of the event was the prize and certificate presentation to students who excelled on all subjects, followed by the recital of _Dikir Asyrakal _and sprinkling of scented water by guest of honour, parents and guardians as well as invited guests.

Speaking to The Brunei Times, Mohd Hazrin Daud, one of the teaching staff said, “We had thorough preparations to ensure that our students were ready to sit for the exam papers such as practising to answer past year’s papers and oral revision.

Apart from that, we also held weekly Solat Hajat to seek guidance and blessings from Allah (SWT) as well as a motivational lecture prior to the exam week.”

The event too hoped that the recipients will share their secrets to academic achievements to students who are sitting for the SSSRU examinations this year as well as motivating them to perform their best.

One exemplary student, Muhd Azmin Hj Amer Hamzah shared that he was overjoyed to finally finish his Ugama (religious) studies from Year 1 to Year 6.

He shared that his achievement was due to his thorough preparation and strict scheduling to balance his morning academic studies and afternoon Ugama studies.

Another recipients, Ak Ahmad Syauqi Pg Mohammaddin and Farida Hamimi Zainal - both with Division 1 with Aggregate 5 results - shared that doing revisions as early as possible was the key to their achievements and that they would continue practising their religious knowledge even after leaving the Ugama school.
