HOORAY ! 72 Upper Six Formers in SMK Taman SEA were delighted and overjoyed to receive their RM200 1Malaysia book vouchers (Baucar Buku 1Malaysia / BB1M) today.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the free education policy, including the RM200 book vouchers, when he tabled Budget 2012 October last year. The book vouchers worth RM200 would be given to all Malaysian students in public and private local higher learning institutions, matriculation students as well as Form 6 students.
Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, the deputy minister of Higher Education said that the incentive must not be misused and that the RM200 are not redeemable for cash. This was the government’s way of helping students are books at this level are getting more expensive and many students are facing difficulties in buying them.
So, people……spend wisely ! 😀
