Special education class to develop students talents, potential — Mary Yap

Global news, Special Schooling



TAWAU, (Bernama) — The Special Education Class created at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Balung is believed to focus on developing the talents and potential of students according to their interests, said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Mary Yap Kain Chin.

She said the class, which begins today will accommodate students who need special attention to develop the skills of learning in schools.

“It also aims to develop skills and potential and teach them to be able to manage themselves and master the 3M skills namely reading, writing and arithmetic. It is also important to produce individuals who are able to be independent and successful in life and who can contribute to society and the country,” she said after officiating at the launch of the Special Education Class at SMK Balung, near here, today.

The principal of SMK Balung, Matnoor Sima, said students who attended the class are those who were weak in terms of learning, hyperactive and children who have a short attention span.

“Previously, a Special Education Class was established in SMK Kuhara but because it was far from Balung, the Sabah Education Department has taken the initiative to set up such a class here based on the needs of the students,” he said.
