LABUAN: The Sungai Bedaun National School (SKSB) team made history when they were crowned champions of the 2023 National Nuri Madani Rhythmic Speaking Competition recently.

With this victory, the SKSB team brought home a cash prize of RM5,000, the Rotating Trophy, the Companion Trophy, and a certificate.

The SKSB Rhythmic Speaking team was guided by teachers from the school's Malay Language Committee.

Head Coach Shafawati Seliat said that the team, consisting of 21 students from Year Four, Five, and Six, showed high commitment and discipline during training.

In addition, she said that the strong support provided by the administrators, teachers, and parents was a factor in the team's success.

In addition to Shafawati Seliat, the team was also guided by Nadiah Mohd Ali and Nurdahlia Ankujau.

Team Manager Khadijah Tamit said that the team had gone through several stages and screenings before being selected to compete in the final round of the National Nuri Madani Rhythmic Speaking Competition.

She, who is also the Head of the SKSB Malay Language Committee, said that in the final round, only the top five teams would perform.

“This team has always been feared by opponents every time the competition is held at the state level.

“The SKSB team is no stranger at the national level as they previously secured fourth place in 2022 in Johor, besides being champions at the Federal Territory of Labuan level in 2018, 2019, and 2022,” she said.

Meanwhile, SKSB Principal Dg Sarifah A. Mahmod said that the sincerity and hard work of the guiding teachers, regardless of fatigue, had led to the victory of SKSB, even though initially she did not expect the victory when the national Nuri Madani Rhythmic Speaking champion was announced.

“Hopefully, this success can be a source of inspiration and motivation for teachers and students to achieve more success while enhancing the students' achievements at the school,” she said.

As a token of appreciation for this achievement, the SKSB Rhythmic Speaking Team was warmly welcomed as soon as they arrived at Labuan Airport.

Deputy Director of the Learning Sector, Yahya Ahmad Puteh, along with parents, teachers of Sungai Bedaun School, and officers of the Student Development Sector of the Labuan Education Department gathered as early as 5 pm to welcome the team's return.

Second place went to SK Felcra Bukit Kepong, Johor, who also won the Best Conductor title, while third place was won by SK Bangi, Selangor.

The Best Script was won by SK Tun Syed Ahmad Shahabudin, Melaka.

The competition, organized by Bank Rakyat in collaboration with the Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE), was held to enliven the celebration of National Unity Week 2023.

The prize presentation ceremony was officiated by the Acting Chairman of Bank Rakyat, Datuk Mohd Irwan Mohd Mubarak, and the Director of the Sports, Co-Curricular, and Arts Division of the Ministry of Education Malaysia, Zainuren Mohd Nor at the Tun Abdul Razak Hall, Bank Rakyat Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur.
