Teacher praised for going extra mile for student

A SECONDARY school teacher in Johor Baru was praised for her concern after she went out of her way to look for a student when he did not turn up for his SPM paper, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.

The teacher was seen calling the name of the student in front of his house at about 2pm on Thursday during a downpour.

The student's neighbour, known only as Wang, said the teacher was worried that the student had overslept and would miss the exam.

Wang's brother climbed into the compound of the house to knock on the door but got no answer.

Wang said the teacher then drove around the area to look for the student before stopping at the house again. She left after failing to find him.

Wang shared the incident on social media and the post received much praise from netizens.
