By Sofia Nasir

KAJANG, March 11 — Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari has called on all stakeholders to work together to create a new generation of students that are competitive and resilient in facing future challenges.

Drawing lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic that led to the so-called lost generation, Amirudin urged all quarters to combine their efforts to reignite students’ passion and interest in education and contribute back to society.

“The past pandemic has affected each and every one of us, both mentally and physically, to some extent, altering our capabilities,” he said.  

“So, whether we like it or not, every institution has a role to play in fostering resilience among students. We need to help them overcome fear to continue competing in the future world.” 

Amirudin said this in his speech during his visit to Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Puteri Mahkota here, in conjunction with its 10-year anniversary and the opening of the new school year. 

Hulu Langat MP Mohd Sany Hamzan, Selangor Public Library Corporation director Datin Paduka Mastura Muhamad and Yayasan Selangor acting chief executive officer Zaini Sulaiman were also present at the event.

At the same event, Amirudin handed over a RM50,000 donation on behalf of the state government to the school authorities for the construction of an open hall facility for student activities.

The Menteri Besar also officiated the distribution of back-to-school assistance by Selangor FC to 100 students from low-income families.
