On the 28 July 2018, the English Language Panel of SMK Mutiara situated in the Federal Territory of Labuan organised an International Creativity and Innovation Exhibition and Language Teaching Seminar. The event was held in the Labuan International School. The purpose of the event was to provide an opportunity for teachers to showcase their innovation and to present research papers at the seminar where teachers can learn from one another through the sharing and bring back the valuable knowledge to be shared and implemented in their respective schools. There were 12 presenters and 14 teams of innovators who came not only from different schools in Labuan, but also from Nilai; Negeri Sembilan, Kota Kinabalu, Kota Belud and Tuaran in Sabah.
The representative from Kota Kinabalu for this event was Mdm Olivia Geraldine Lazaroo. She is an Excellent English Language Teacher who is teaching at La Salle Secondary School. Her innovation, ‘ThinkQ Grid: Fun Learning, Target Learning and Success Learning’ won two commendation awards —- ‘Judge’s Choice Award’ awarded by Dr Tam Suet Yet; an ELT Lecturer at ELTC, Nilai and ‘Hyginovasi Special Mention Award’ awarded by Dr Hyginus Lester; National Innovative Teacher Icon. It was indeed a fruitful event for everyone.
