The main objective of having the one day seminar is to get students to be well prepared to
face the SPM examination. In line with this, three papers were presented;

SPM exam soon, Dr. Dusit Jaul, the association’s President wants students to take full
responsibility for their future. Teachers and parents could do so much, but it will be the
students themselves who will be sitting in the classroom for their exam, comes examination

Dr. Dusit reminded students attending the seminar that as students, their task is to study.

SDGA achieved yet another milestone with the formation of Sri Aman Division Liaison 
Committee (DLC) on the 08 October 2011. A meeting to formalise the formation of Sri Aman 
DLC was chaired by the association’s President, Dr. Dusit Jaul and attended by twenty four 
participants.  Among those who attended the meeting were Cikgu Jamit Ajok (Pegawai 
Pelajaran Daerah Sri Aman) and Cikgu Baba Minggu (Pegawai Pelajaran Daerah Lubok Antu). 
SDGA’s Deputy President, Mdm. Noelle Lily Morse and its Treasurer General,Mr Tamoi Janggu 
were also present. 
  
The Sri Aman DLC is headed by Cikgu Francis Berayan, with Cikgu Marry Terrance Embol as 
Secretary. The other committee members are Cikgu Jamit Ajok, Cikgu Baba Minggu, Cikgu 
Dickson Palot Anak Melintan, Cikgu Joni Colin Singet and Cikgu Diana Denis Andrew. 
The immediate goals spelt out to Sri Aman DLC is membership drive for which the target set 
is to recruit 350 new members by the end of this year; with 200 members from Sri Aman and 
150 members from Lubok Antu. The newly appointed Sri Aman DLC is confident and gave 
assurance that this figure can be achieved based on the estimated number of graduates in 
Sri Aman Division.  
  
Earlier on in his opening remark, Dr. Dusit emphasised the need for Dayak intellectuals
to work together as a solid team promoting the value of education among the Dayak 
community.  This is more so when Dayak achievement in education thus far is nothing to 
be proud of compared to the other communities. In this context, Dayak graduates, wherever
they may be and regardless of whatever positions held, should become willing players to be 
in the forefront leading their communities into the 21st century. 
 
We should discard the prevailing temptation of self centrismto one that is community centric. 
The progress of the Dayak community in education is a collective responsibility especially on 
the part of Dayak graduates.  In a way, it is payback time for us; giving back to our community 
for the positions we hold today in society.
 
The formation of Sri Aman DLC is the first among the DLC to be set up in the various Divisions 
and Dayak graduates in Sri Aman should be proud of this achievement.
