Returning for the sixth year, Malaysians can show their appreciation and nominate stories of inspiring teachers from 10 March – 2 April 2022

Anugerah Guru Inspirasi (AGI) McDonald’s is back for its sixth year to recognise the everyday heroes of our nation, our teachers who have gone above and beyond in educating, shaping, and inspiring the country’s greatest resources – the children. Malaysians can start nominating the inspiring teachers from 10 March to 2 April 2022 by sharing the story of their ‘Cikgu Luar Biasa’ in either Bahasa Malaysia, English or Chinese.

AGI McDonald’s is brought back annually by the quick service restaurant as part of its commitment in giving back to the communities that it operates in. Through AGI McDonald’s, the company continues to give recognition to teachers’ who go above and beyond in nurturing future leaders.

“We saw major changes in the education system in the past two years. Teachers had to transition from in-person classes to fully remote online classes, to different versions of hybrid learning in between. Which is why it is all the more important for Anugerah Guru Inspirasi McDonald’s to continue to celebrate these teachers in 2022, for their substantial efforts in ensuring that there’s continuation of education for students across the nation,” said Dato’ Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.

Dato’ Azmir added, “These teachers inspire students to grow as individuals in realising their potential and aspirations. They sacrifice their needs for the needs of students while becoming a positive influence in the students’ life that can shift their perspectives and make a significant impact in their lives.”
