In order to commemorate Teacher’s Day 2011 on September 24, 2011, three statesmen of Brunei Darussalam are given Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Education Award (APSHOAS). Those three honorees are Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Indera Mahkota Pengiran Anak (Dr.) Haji Kemaludin Al Haj ibni AI-Marhum Pengiran Bendahara Pengiran Anak Haji Mohd.

Yang Berhormat Pehin Jawatan Dalam Seri Maharaja Dato Seri Utama Dr. Haji Awang Mohd.

On the event of APSHOAS Award, which was held in Plenary Hall, International Convention Centre, Berakas, His Majesty Paduka Seri Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam directly, gave the award to those three honorees.

APSHOAS Award is an appreciation from the Sultanate or the Country of Brunei Darussalam to the people who are being evaluated in expanding and developing the education. On their services, each recipient entitled to receive a charter award, money amounted BND 20,000.00 cash, medal, and facilities for free treatment at government hospitals. 

This was the first award ever held beginning from this year. The awards are granted only if there are some people assessing competent to receive this award. Therefore, APSHOAS Award is not always held on every year, but in specific time and reason.      

The name of APSHOAS is taken from the appreciation of Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien’s efforts to develop the education in Brunei Darussalam. The 28th Sultan of Brunei Darussalam is known as a great leader gives big attention to the education of the country, especially the Islamic education. One of his gaits is still preserved to this day, which is the establishment of Islamic school in 1956.
