Organised by PEMIMPIN GSL in partnership with YTL Foundation, the Malaysia Teacher Prize is the localised version of Varkey Foundation’s Global Teacher Prize. The first of its kind in Malaysia, MTP was established to recognise the most innovative educators in the country. Cikgu Anuthra Sirisena, a chemistry teacher at SMJK Chung Hwa in Tenom, Sabah was announced as the inaugural winner at our 25th anniversary dinner on 7 October. Cikgu Anuthra received RM50,000 for her innovative integration of technology and gamification in her classroom which has positively impacted her students and the community of Tenom.
If you know of a teacher who is deserving of this award, applications for the Malaysia Teacher Prize 2023 will open in the first quarter of the year.
Ruang KITA is a community space revived by YTL Foundation, Sentul Raya Sdn. Bhd., DBKL and PDRM in 2020, to breathe new life into the PPR Seri Perak community. Alongside the community, we introduced multiple community-based activities such as the Toy Library, free child development assessment, mental health training and a nutritional programme for pregnant women and their young children.
In conjunction with Children’s Day, we collaborated with Sentul Raya Sdn. Bhd., Polis Bantuan YTL and Humankind to celebrate the children of PPR Seri Perak and appreciate the community leaders who completed their one-year Psychological First Aid (PFA) training.
