In conjunction with the national Teachers Day Celebration held annually on 16 th May, Koperasi Pendidikan Swasta Malaysia Berhad, also known as Private Education Cooperative of Malaysia, organized the Private Education Excellence Awards 2018 for outstanding private educators in the nation at Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka Kuala Lumpur.
The event was attended by Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr Yahaya Ibrahim who is the Patron of the Cooperative, Dato' R Rajendran, Chairman of the Cooperative, Dato Dr Ibrahim Ahmad Bajunid, Lee Seng Chee, Chief Operating Officer of Krista Group of Companies (event sponsor), and some 350 educationists from 70 private institutions including universities.
“More often than not, the focus on recognition for private educators has not been sufficient. We must not forget that the private educators are now the biggest contributor and the driving force in the education industry in the country,” said Dato’ R. Rajendran, Chairman of the Cooperative.
The cooperative’s mission is to empower its members through education and training opportunities and to enable them to enjoy welfare and financial assistance benefits besides creating investment opportunities for good returns. Its membership is open to teachers, lecturers, employees of education institutions, owners of institutions, students above 18 years of age, parents and all stakeholders in the private education industry.
“We are always touched by the overwhelming response towards some of the events carried out so far. For this ceremony for example, we received over 150 nominations from 50 private educational institutions of all levels from preschool to university categories; the judging committee for this National Outstanding Educators Awards decided to recognize 23 of them today representing diverse education fields in the nation,” said Dato R. Rajendran.
Outstanding teachers and educators from preschool to university levels were recognized under the categories of teaching, science, arts and design, engineering, research and innovation, and humanities.
