Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah continues to care for the welfare of children from underprivileged families. The latest initiative by Yayasan in collaboration with the Islamic Studies Department is to conduct the Tahsin Project under the Educational Intervention Programme, PIP. The project targets students who are weak in their studies and need guidance, especially in the religious subject.
Details about the project were clarified during a briefing yesterday at the Multipurpose Hall of the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Secondary School. The briefing, among other things, touched on the project's objectives and regulations as well as the roles of the students and parents or guardians. Present was Awang Haji Musthapa bin Haji Matahir, the Assistant Managing Director of Yayasan.
The function also included a motivational talk presented by Awang Haji Mohammad Shahrol Azmi bin Haji Abdul Muluk, Assistant Director of Core Knowledge Centre of the Seri Begawan Religious Teachers University College, KUPU SB. The talk underscored parents' responsibility towards their children in the teaching of Solat and Quran-reading.
The Tahsin project is scheduled to start this Sunday, and will be extended to all four districts. This year, 75 pupils across the country are involved in the project. The project will be conducted by teachers among volunteer professionals in the religious field, similar to the PIP Tuition Class Project currently run by Yayasan.
