UMPSA Students Organize “Perwira untuk Bumi Pertiwi” Programme

KUANTAN, 9 September 2023 - A total of 37 students from the Foundation in Science and Technology (AST), Centre for Science and Mathematics (PSM), Universiti Malaysia Pahang Al-Sultan Abdullah (UMPSA), recently organized the "Perwira untuk Bumi Pertiwi" programme together with Sekolah Kebangsaan Pandan, Kuantan.

A total of 100 standard 5 and standard 6 students, teachers from Sekolah Kebangsaan Pandan, and parents actively participated in the programme.

The "Perwira untuk Bumi Pertiwi" programme was organized to apply and practice the soft skills learned in the Talent Management subject (UQF1012). The programme also aimed to foster unity among educators and encourage the role of the community in shaping the character and personality of students.

The one-day programme was combined with the MADANI 2023 community service initiative, which was initiated by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, for all schools under the Ministry of Education Malaysia. Activities such as painting, cleaning drains, asset disposal, school repairs and maintenance, and tree planting were carried out simultaneously to clean and enhance the school's image.

At the same time, students had the opportunity to explore new knowledge about the Malay culture and traditional attire. AST students acted as programme facilitators and provided guidance on wearing a headgear (tanjak) for boys and a sash for girls.

The students also had the opportunity to showcase their handmade headgear and sash in a creative video at the end of the programme.
