The flashes of the cameras illuminated the bronze medal of the pride of Seri Mulia Sarjana School, Ahmad Rayyan bin Erdie when he was on center stage during the awarding ceremony held at Dewan Utama, Department of Curriculum Development, Ministry of Education, on 18th August 2018. The Science protégé, Ahmad Rayyan, emerged bronze medalist in the Primary School Science Olympiad (PSSO) 2018, a national level competition organised by the Ministry of Education STEP Centre (Science, Technology and Environment Partnership).
Hardwork paid off for the said student who battled and surpassed the higher order thinking questions from the Elimination Round held on 10th May 2018 at SMSS. Advancing to the 2nd round held at the Science, Technology and Environment Partnership (STEP) Centre, Ministry of Education, Brunei Darussalam on 5th July, the well-motivated and driven 5th grader faced the tough challenge ahead of him. Such drive ended with a sweet reward of bagging the bronze medal.
Hats off to this future scientist and to the mentors in the Science Department for bringing pride to SMSS.
