SELANGOR, 26 November 2019 – Credit Guarantee Corporation Malaysia Berhad (CGC) held its annual ‘Back to School’ Corporate Responsibility (CR) programme with primary school students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Jeram (SK Jeram), Selangor last Saturday.
The corporate responsibility programme was graced by the Kuala Selangor District Education Officer, En. Abdul Rahman Yahya. Also present at the event were CGC President/CEO Datuk Mohd Zamree Mohd Ishak, SK Jeram Headmistress Puan Hajjah Hasnita Hassan and representative of the Parent–Teacher Association Pn. Norziana Mohd Noor.
The programme kicked off with traditional and modern dance performances by the students followed by speeches from Puan Hajjah Hasnita Hassan and Datuk Mohd Zamree. The highlight of the event was the presentation of ‘Back-to-School’ packages to 94 students from Standard One (1) to Standard Five (5), with each of them receiving a set of school uniform, a pair of school shoes-socks and a school bag for the upcoming 2020 school term.
“The aim of the CGC ‘Back to School’ programme is to drive home the importance of education amongst the children, more importantly those from underprivileged families. We believe in the inclusion agenda and that all children should be entitled to receive the education they deserve.”

In addition, Datuk Mohd Zamree also stressed on the importance of digitalisation in education, calling the school and students to adopt it. Digitalisation can assist to facilitate self-study sessions, provide better access to information and improve teachers and students understanding on subjects.
This is the sixth (6th) consecutive year of the CGC Back to School CR initiative since its establishment in 2014. The initiative aims to ease the financial constraints faced by underprivileged families in their preparation for the upcoming school term. In 2018, CGC assisted over 100 students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Parit 4, Sungai Besar, Selangor.
