This is the third year that McDonald’s Malaysia has run this award for teachers & it has only gotten bigger, from 1,000 nominations in its first year to more than 7,500 this year. I am sure it wasn’t easy picking 25 out of the thousands of amazing teachers who were nominated. I agree with Melati Abdul Hai, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of McDonald’s Malaysia, when she said, “the increase in nominations was an unmistakable sign that Malaysia has an immense pool of exceptional teachers that are willing to go the extra mile.”

Teachers, do remember to redeem your vouchers between 16 May and 20 May! The meal might not be much to us individually, but it certainly costs a lot! So, don’t let it go to waste!
Take 5 minutes out of your day to be inspired by this Anugerah Guru Inspirasi McDonald’s 2019 video. I’m glad that I did. It’s one thing to read about a teacher’s contributions. It’s a different thing to see a student, a colleague, or the inspiring teacher themself talk about their impactful work. Watch this video & smile. Allow warmth to fill your heart as you realize that good teachers are aplenty in Malaysia: youtu.be/K9P-6xGtsLk
In conclusion, I echo Datuk Dr Amin bin Senin, our Director-General of Education, who presented the awards, when he said, “I wish to personally thank McDonald’s Malaysia for organizing the annual Anugerah Guru Inspirasi as they are one of the few local companies to have a special award dedicated towards celebrating inspiring teachers that go the extra mile. I hope more of such public-private partnerships will continue to be formed.”
