In line with ‘Misi Nasional dan Perakuan Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan 2013-2013’, SK Satria Jaya is dedicated to providing quality learning opportunities to all students, adding that the teachers were also committed to helping and guiding the students.
Hussen also mentioned that the school was currently in the midst of sourcing for funds to build a new open hall at the school as well as painting the school buildings.
“The school PIBG will collaborate to organise ‘Program Pasaria’ and we hope to get support from the parents to make this programme happen,” he said.
As the graduating students leave their primary school years filled with meaningful memories of their friends and teachers, the annual graduation ceremony symbolised a stepping stone for every student to move forward towards the future.
