IPOH: COMMUNITY tuition centre, Sri Murugan Centre, held its annual kalvi yathirai educational pilgrimage, which saw some 3,000 students and their parents gather at the Sri Subramaniar Temple in Gunung Cheroh here recently.
The centre's coordinator, K. Nachemutu, said the pilgrimage is always held prior to the examinations.
"At this event, parents pray for their children to do well in the exams. It also helps children to exercise their willpower and concentration on their studies," said Nachemutu.
"We have noticed a correlation between strong religious beliefs, and success in exams and careers.
"Children also pray and take part in a motivation session," he added.
Meanwhile, 28 SPM and STPM students who qualified to enter matriculation colleges and universities, were honoured. Among them were S. Malarvilli, who scored 5As in the STPM examinations last year. Malarvilli, who is one of the top 12 high-scorers in the country, will be studying law at University Malaya.
The guest-of-honour was Manjoi state assemblyman Datuk Nadzri Ismail who represented Second Finance Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah.
Others present were Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh councillor A. Subramaniam, Perak Bar Council chairman, P. Vivekanandan, temple president M. Damodaran and Perak Education Department assistant director (Tamil Academic Unit) N. Chandrasegaran.
