Written by 

Vivid colours filled Seri Mulia Sarjana School’s Secondary Section as students and teachers got ready to celebrate its Second Free Day, which was held on 25th May with the theme “Unity in Diversity”.

Present as honoured guests at the event was the Chief Executive Officer of Seri Mulia Sarjana School Dr. Mary Lim and her staff from the main office, Mr David Jhoy Sasis V and Mr. Sim Jeng Siang; Director of School Ms. Sophia Lim, deputy principals, supervisors and heads from the Seri Mulia Sarjana School community.

Students were seen wearing their traditional outfits and some were even preparing for the “Battle of Champions”. This competition is held to test the students’ knowledge in subjects such as Science, Maths, Malay, IRK, MIB, Music as well as their general knowledge.

The 14 participating groups consisting of 5 members each competed with one another in the first and second round. The finals were convened onstage in front of everyone, where the three remaining groups delivered their victory chant.

The Upper Secondary Champions were Team A made up of Zahra Nashath, Jaskirat Kaur, Charie Rose, Denise Santos and Joycelyn Fontanilla. The Lower Secondary Champions were Team B, comprised of Nathaniel Geguillan, Abdul Syafiq, Sim Kuan Fu, Joshua Alan and Al-Muiz Osama.

The 1st place winners from both sessions were awarded with a $50 cash prize, medals, and certificates. The 2nd and3rdplace winners got medals and certificates. The prizes were given away by Principal Cg Radzuan Abdullah.

The event was further enlivened with a cultural performance by the Warisan Budaya Society. The performance drew light on the lives of dedicated and persevering Brunei local farmers. Following it, was a dynamic dance performance by the Filipino Society.


After the dance performance, a Lion dance was performed by the Chinese Cultural Club students followed by a mesmerizing dance performance by the Indian students. The dancers bedazzled the audience with their alluring moves.

On top of that, students feeling hungry were able to eat to their hearts content at the refreshment counter which had a wide array of food brought by the generous students themselves. They also thoroughly enjoyed listening and swaying to the instrumental and melodious tune of the musical ensemble which was conducted by teacher John Raymund.

To sum up the exciting day, a student retorted “This year’s Unity in Diversity day was more colorful than ever. More cultural performances were included and the Battle of Champions was a refreshing event. It was fun to see them compete. I enjoyed it!”
