KUALA KANGSAR: The people must uphold and value positive traditions despite living in a borderless world that is revolving around sophisticated technology information, said Negeri Sembilan Yang Dipertuan Besar, Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Munawir.
He said, this was because good social values could become strong pillars to the people in facing various challenges and social ills that could destroy one’s character.
“I wish to see today’s generation as people with versatility. They have to think maturely in politics, become useful human resources in the economy and play a role in society by being good at socialising without marginalising social values and can uphold customs,” he said at the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) excellence award ceremony here yesterday.
Also present were The Regent of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah and Perak Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.
Tuanku Muhriz also reminded MCKK students that the success they achieved today was only the beginning to face the challenges ahead in a competitive academic world.
He presented the Carey Award to Ahmad Izzat Ahmad Redza and the Hasanal Bolkiah Award to Ahmad Fitri Omar Shaifuddin respectively for being active in and outside school, including at international level.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Zakwan Zakariya received the Principal Award and Muhammad Hazique Mohd Tuah Pula was selected for the Leadership Award. — Bernama
