We had earlier requested the school to identify 20 poor students for SNF sponsorship, and was asked if we can provide another 10 Std Six students that will be leaving the school. Project Made and 1M1C decided to take this up as a separate initiative. Project MADE sponsored 2 sets of school uniforms & stationary, while 1M1C sponsored 10 bags and RM30 BATA vouchers. For the SNF sponsored students, they were given RM200 Mydin vouchers.
We arrived at the school at 11:45am (no, not at 11:11:11am) meet up with the Asst. HM (Student Affairs) and introduced ourselves. The asst. headmistress announced the students' name via PA system, and at that moment, I felt 20 years younger after being out of the school for so long. ;).. The students quickly arrived and she did a headcount to ensure all are around. I noticed that most of the students' clothing were old and worn out and my heart just sank. The white shirt worn by the some of the male students had lost its shinning white colour and the shirt collar is so soft, god knows how many years it has been worn.
We proceed to the assembly point and got the students line up, and while the Asst. HM read the names, the HM distribute the vouchers. Ainie had gracefully labeled each yellow-pow packet with student's name for ease of distribution. There were a few that didnt come as they were in the afternoon session. We handover the balance to the HM.
