BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN – DST brought back their “Vote for Your School” social media campaign for the third year in a row, this time celebrating teachers for their hard work and dedication during the pandemic.

The campaign, which ran from September 29 to October 2, had members of the public vote for their top schools in five categories: government primary schools; private primary schools; religious schools; secondary schools; and higher education institutions.

Even though Brunei is under movement restrictions due to COVID-19, DST made sure teachers could still be celebrated through a virtual event.

The telco kicked off its Teachers’ Day celebrations with educators from Universiti Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) on October 15 after the university was voted as one of the top 15 education institutions in Brunei.

Although the teachers were not able to meet in person, they still had the chance to have fun with the DST team by competing and winning prizes from the games and lucky draw!
