KUANTAN – The Regent of Pahang, Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah has called on all private religious schools in the state to come under the supervison of Maahad Tahfiz Negeri Pahang (MTNP) so that the quality of education at such schools could be raised.
He said that since its establishment in 1996, MNTP had achieved many successes including emerging as the best school in Pahang for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) results and being one of the top 10 schools at the national level.
“We observe the successes of the MTNP, all the programmes carried out appeared to be effective to produce outstanding results both in terms of studies and cocurriculum,” he told reporters after attending an event at MNTP, Tanjung Lumpur, here today which was also attended by Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
Among other successes achieved by MNTP were winning the gold medal in the International Young Inventors programme through the Duo Honey Jelly project and emerging as champion in the Arabic language debate in the Musleh International Debating Championship 2016.
In addition, Tengku Abdullah said the relevant government agencies should work together to expand the MTNP to the other districts to ensure that more children in Pahang could study at the institution and thus produce balanced human capital. – BERNAMA
