Rewards for Outstanding Pupils

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, 22 March 2019 – Thirty pupils from Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu’s adopted school, Bantayan Inanam Primary School, will walk home with a bicycle each if they excel in school this year, thanks to the generous donation of an international company which recently held its three-day MICE event at the resort.

Representing the resort during the presentation were the resort’s general manager Gavin Weightman (foreground, third from right) and resident manager Allen Khoo (foreground, extreme right).

These bicycles will be given to pupils who achieve the school’s “Most Improved in Studies”, “Best Discipline” and “Best Attendance” awards at the end of this year.
