KOTA KINABALU: Teachers from three selected secondary schools completed their one-day vocational training in preparation for the “Rotary-CIMB Learning Hub” project that is expected to benefit more than 5,000 students in the future.

The schools involved were SMK Narinang (Kota Belud), SMK Nambayan (Tambunan) and SMK Kinarut.

The project is a platform specially designed and tailored for learning resources, enhancing the teaching-learning process and polish researching skills for both teachers and students.

Caroline Duliat of SMK Narinang said it was an eye opener. She said it was a solution to reduce burden of teachers as well as providing better quality teaching aids much needed by students.

“Overall, this vocational training has opened our eyes, helping us gain new ideas to help our students enjoy the learning process whether inside or outside the classroom. 

“With interactive training sessions and the amount of allocation provided for our school, this would surely reduce the burden on teachers to provide quality teaching aids they need. 

“Students benefit from this and can utilise these facilities. We are grateful for the blessing we received from our benefactors, the two Rotary clubs and also CIMB Foundation,” said Caroline.

Sabrina Petrus of SMK Nambayan expressed gratitude for the project, saying she gained useful information in regards to teaching methods.

“I have gained so much experience and knowledge from the training. I now acknowledge that we have so many things to improve in our way of teaching.

“I have a clearer version on what we should do in our Project Based Learning. The poster pitching is new to us and it really opened our eyes on how it can help students improve their speaking skills. 

“As a rural school, it is our first time participating in this unique programme conducted by an NGO, the Rotary Club.  It is indeed a privilege to be part of it,” said Sabrina.

The project was jointly held by Rotary Club of Kinabalu Sutera (RCKS), Rotary Club of Likas Bay (RCLB) and sponsored by CIMB Bank Berhad.

CIMB Bank representatives Lois Lim and Joseph Wong were also present to witness how the training was conducted.  

Meanwhile, teacher Neetu Shameeta Kaur of SMK Kinarut was grateful to be chosen for a second time. 

“The ideas will help us implement new strategies to encourage and equip our students with learning skills for their future. 

“The course taught us to let students have a voice and ownership of their own learning experiences, only then the project/programme becomes more meaningful,” said Neetu.

The teachers also expressed their gratitude towards Madam Audrey and Madam Laurence who conducted the training.
