As the day for the High School Conference approached, anxiety began to heat up among the teachers especially in the rural areas of Sabah. A number of their students were keen to join, but the conference fees were a worrisome concern for them. "Don't worry about the fees. We'll work it out together.

They tried selling snacks in the hostel to raise funds, but the profit they earned on the first day was only enough to cover the fees for one student.
