Pupils learn Science, Maths, English are fun


EYE-OPENING EXPERIENCE: Open University Malaysia holds “Learning is Fun” camp for 100 pupils of SK Permatang Janggus in Penaga

KEPALA BATAS: About 100 pupils of SK Permatang Janggus in Penaga, here, no longer think that Science, Maths and English are difficult or boring subjects, thanks to the "Learning is Fun" camp organised by  Open University Malaysia (OUM).

The one-day programme exposed the pupils to games which sparked their interest in the subject.

The programme is part of the OUM initiative to connect with the community.

The pupils' parents were invited to attend a parental talk and flower decoration contest.

The event was presided over by OUM chancellor Tun Jeanne Abdullah, the wife of former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

She told the pupils not to be shy to speak English as it would help them to master the language.

She said mastering the international language would improve their prospects.

Tun Abdullah and Tun Jeanne planted a tree in the school compound.

Also present was OUM president and vice-chancellor Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Anuwar Ali.

OUM also promoted the lifelong learning concept to the community for their personal and career development.

The programme was the third organised by OUM after similar ones held in Kundasang in Sabah and Chini in Pahang.
