World Book and Copyright Day happens to be one of the world’s biggest annual celebration dedicated to the promotion of avid reading, publishing and knowledge of copyright, all quintessential nuggets of wisdom that serve both readers and writers well. On the 11th of April, in an effort to instill reading culture, especially among the school community, for the third year now, PTEM once more took yet another grand take at an organized event which took place at the school’s Multi-Purpose Hall. The event was attended by Yang Berhormat Khairunnisa Ash’ari as guest of honour.
The main highlights of the event last Thursday included the English Oratory competition which was done by the school’s ‘O’ Level students, followed by a choral speaking which was beautifully executed by the Performing Arts Club, much to the entertainment of all present, and the awarding of placement prizes to the winners of the events that had built up to the launch of World Book day, such as the Short Story/Prose competition and Scrabble Master tournament.
The heart of the event had been organized by the English Department in collaboration with the Parents-Teachers Association (PIBG) with tremendous success that saw coverage from local news channel, Radio Television Brunei, as well. All in all, a massively successful event that once more plays its role in influencing and encouraging future writers.
