PROFESSOR EMERITUS TAN SRI DATO’ DZULKIFLI ABDUL RAZAK

Assalamualaikum, Greetings of Peace and Salam Sejahtera.

LeapEd’s main goal is to realise the individuality of each Learner. We don’t believe that education should simply focus on academia; instead we stress and encourage holistic learning which includes five critical life skills of confidence, communication, creativity, critical thinking and co-existence. We want to nurture and engage students with the appropriate knowledge, abilities, and skills to enable them to smoothly navigate their future. We know that the future is abstract and unknown, hence we equip our students with the necessary means to steer themselves through a constantly changing environment confidently and purposefully. At the same time, we are preparing our future generations for a meaningful life ahead with regards to their careers as the world of work gets redefined by the ensuing circumstances beyond our control. As Franklin Roosevelt once said, “We cannot always build a future for our youth, but we can always build our youth for the future”.

On behalf of the committed LeapEd team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has worked tirelessly to ensure that every child is given that deserving privilege and opportunity to dream of a brighter future. And more importantly, to ensure that it is translated into reality. The continued support, confidence and encouragement of our shareholders, the trust and loyalty of the larger community, not forgetting the sacrifice and professionalism of all levels at LeapEd will change the course of education in actualising the National Philosophy of Education which is second to none. This is the promise that we set for ourselves as a unique privilege to serve you.

Every child deserves quality education. Every generation deserves relevant education. At LeapEd, we define quality and relevance as centering around providing opportunities for children to develop their true potential, to be a good human being and to lead their communities.

Focusing on sustainability and scalability, LeapEd’s Philosophy of Education Transformation promotes and enables sustainable learning communities that are nurturing, caring and engaged. This in turn will underpin the development of each child to unleash their character, capacity and capability.

As a social enterprise, we are always looking to create broader and deeper impact. We work through collaborative partnerships in support of holistic development of children and to this end, we certainly welcome anybody who wants to collaborate, to reach out to us.

Let me take this opportunity to extend my sincerest appreciation to the entire collaborative teams – LeapEd, Yayasan AMIR, Ministry of Education, all private sector partners and participants, all Trust Schools communities…. this list is not exhaustive – for their endless contribution, dedication and involvement in constructing the journey towards transforming the Malaysian Education landscape.
