    I received an email from an officer

    Hello everyone, I received an email regarding to the arrangement of the interview from a human resource officer, but I find it strange. Can you please kindly amend the below email so I can avoid the mistakes next time? Thank you!

    Please be reminded to bring along your originals past job references, education certificates, latest income proof and a recent photo with you to the interview. Appreciate if you can also complete the attached forms before the interview. Thanks.

    "Please be reminded to bring original copies of all your past job references, education certificates...". The rest is ok.

    Re: I received an email from an officer

    I don't like "Please be reminded to ...".

    Please remember to bring original ...
    Please don't forget to bring original ...
    Please bring original ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The second sentence would be better as Please complete the attached forms and bring them to the interview.

    I thought beginning the sentence with "Appreciate if" is incorrect, but it turns out everyone accept this expression...lol

    You cannot start the sentence without a subject - "Appreciate if".
    I am not a teacher.
