TWO pupils were yesterday offered scholarships to study at Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Secondary School after achieving excellent results in the Primary School Assessment (PSR).

Nurul Nabilah Md Basuni and Siti Nuranisah Mohammad Hamirul Azri were part of Yayasan’s Education Intervention Programme (PIP) last year.

The PIP programme was introduced in 2006 to identify students from a low income background and need assistance with their studies through tuition classes.

To date, 31 students have been offered the scholarship since it was introduced in 2010.

A contract signing ceremony was held for the pupils at Masjid Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien.

Signing the contract on behalf of Yayasan were Managing Director Hj Brahim Hj Ismail and Assistant Managing Director Hj Puasa Hj Jumat. Yayasan Board of Directors and Chairperson of Yayasan Volunteer Committee Dato Paduka Dr Hj Affendy POKSM DSP Hj Abidin was present to witness the signing ceremony.

The event yesterday also saw sunat hajat prayers and recital of Surah Yasin to bless the students who are about to sit for the upcoming PSR.
