“Never has the school included ironing clothes as a part of the interview for the new intake of form 1 students,” he stated in the tweet.

“This is a good change as you probably won’t see students wearing wrinkled shirts during morning assemblies anymore,” he continued.

Hasif, a Universiti Putra Malaysia student mentioned that he was a student at SM Sains Lahad Datu from 2010 to 2014.

“During my time studying there, there was no such thing as an ironing test. If I’m not mistaken, it was introduced this year, for the new intakes.”

He added that the test should have been introduced a while ago as it’s considered an essential life skill that will be useful daily. He said,

“This test is one-of-a-kind. It might have been implemented in other schools but it’s definitely something I’ve never heard before.”

“To me, even if this seems like a minor change, it’s extremely important as it teaches students to at least look tidy in school.”

On top of that, Hasif admitted that the 5 years of being in boarding school has thought him numerous life skills that helps him to be independent today.
