Maktab Nasional’s Students Installation Day


Maktab Nasional organised its 13th Students Installation Day to honour the students who have been identified and selected by the school authority as the most capable of being the future leaders. Its Principal, Mr Michael Baikan, said in his speech he hoped to see the newly appointed Student Council carry out their duties and responsibilities entrusted to them with full confidence, commitment and diligence and without any fear and favour. “They are entrusted to help the school management to execute the various duties and responsibilities, such as to enforce the school rules and regulation, student discipline and to organize club and games activities, academic inputs and charity works,” he said, adding the installation ceremony was one of the school’s yearly activities. He disclosed that the selection process for the various posts in the board was done through various criteria such as students’ potential and achievement in academic and extra curricular activities, positive attitudes, high degree of commitment, creativeness, disciplines, responsibleness and diligence. “Having fulfilled these criteria, they are then sent for a leadership training camp. During the training, they are given a variety of activities to train their mental and physical fitness,” he said, adding that at the end of the training, the students were assessed by the trainer to qualify for the certificate. The ceremony was officiated by guest of honour Mr John Paujik who is a member of the Board of Governors. Kohinoor Kaur was appointed as the new Chief Minister of the school.
