The caring monarch later toured the secondary school to learn more about its facilities and to mingle with students and teaching staff.

This was followed by visits to the residences of village heads including Abdul Wahab bin Timbang @ Rosli of Kg Rimba, as well as Hj Ismail bin Hj Rahab of Kg Tungku and Kg Katok.

His Majesty also made a stop at Kesuma Mekar School in STKRJ Kampong Rimba, Gadong.

Hj Afineh bin Hj Mohd Ali, Omarali bin Hj Abdullah, Mahmud bin Hj Ahmad, Rais bin Haji Johar Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Ahmat and Matjin bin Hj Jamahat were just some of the lucky recipients under the scheme who welcomed His Majesty into their homes.
