KUCHING, Sept 26 (Sept) -- A total of 1,265 primary and 192 secondary schools in Sarawak have implemented the Highly Immersive Programme (HIP), said State Education Department deputy director Abang Mat Ali Abang Masagus.
He said HIP had been implemented in stages commencing in 2016 and eventually rolling out to all schools in Sarawak by this year.
Abang Mat Ali said the HIP is a programme introduced under the 'Upholding Bahasa Malaysia and Strengthening the English Language' (MBMMBI) policy that will improve the English proficiency of students through increased exposure to English.
"I hope that the school heads participating in this discourse will make good use of this golden opportunity to raise issues, initiate thinking and propose solutions that can contribute to improve the effectiveness of the teaching and learning process in our schools," he said in his closing remarks at the Wacana HIP Zon Sarawak here today.
Wacana HIP Zon Sarawak saw a total of 303 participants attending the three-day seminar started on Monday (Sept 24) and aimed at developing the student’s proficiency in English.
HIP was introduced to improve English proficiency of students by providing a highly immersive English-rich environment in school, created through greater involvement of students in English activities and extensive involvement of parents and communities in the implementation of the language in school activities.
