'Inspiring to Witness' - Lewis Visits School with PETRONAS

Lewis visits competition-winning school and learns about STEM projects, biodiversity conversation and sustainable living

"It was a privilege to meet the students and see the ongoing positive work at the school."

Those were the words from Lewis after visiting Sekolah Menegah Kebangsaan (SMK) Seri Keramat in Malaysia yesterday. The seven-time world champion made a surprise visit to the school, joining students in carrying out several STEM experiments and learning about their focus on sustainability and biodiversity.

The school is one of 39 that participated in a recent scheme run by PETRONAS focused on delivering a responsible waste management programme. SMK Seri Keramat came out as the winner. Lewis got the chance to see the school's efforts to integrate eco-friendly initiatives into the curriculum and the importance placed on sustainable efforts and practices.

He continued: "The passion for sustainability and biodiversity was also inspiring to witness. It's such an important topic and it's great to see the kids taking such an interest from a young age."

"At PETRONAS, we are passionate about driving progress towards a better future for all, and this includes preparing communities to be more adaptive, resilient and contribute towards a healthier planet," commented Khairul Hisham Mazlan from PETRONAS. "This initiative with SMK Seri Keramat not only provides students with hands-on STEM learning opportunities but also serves as a platform for us to foster a shared understanding of our collective responsibility.

It was a privilege to meet the students and see the ongoing positive work at the school.


"This year is a special year for PETRONAS- we celebrate our 50th anniversary. What you see today is a testament to our passion to continuously progress and create better solutions together that benefit people, our partners and the planet. We will continue to be committed to creating a sustainable future whilst constantly seeking to establish meaningful collaborations to deliver solutions that enriches lives."

Lewis also visited the famous PETRONAS Towers in Kuala Lumpur before heading to Melbourne for next weekend's Australian Grand Prix.
