The first thing that strikes you upon meeting Ms Khor Swee Moi is how at ease she makes you feel. Helping others shed their shyness and muster the courage to share, learn and grow together, is second nature to this affable teacher of 12 years’ standing.
Well done, Nalandians!
31 December is an important day for Nalanda Dharma School. This is the time when the School celebrates the contributions and progress made by students throughout the year. For 2011, the School Honours day was very different from previous years’ because this time around, it was solely organized by the students; a task previously done by School facilitators.
A dialogue session with Venerable Man Ya marked the first Service Sunday for 2012. Four representatives from different age groups, namely retirees, working adults, parents and children, discussed the topic “Promoting Social Harmony in Our Daily Lives“.
More than 300 participants turned up at Bukit Jalil Recreation Park on a crisp Sunday morning on 4 March to take part in Nalanda Walkathon – “Walk for Education 2012!” This time around, there were more group participation from schools, private companies and local council staff members. One out-station participant, an undergraduate from Perak, even arrived the night before and slept under a canopy in the Park!
Mdm Lee Poh Peng is one of the most experienced teachers one might meet, with 27 years of teaching in the bag. For the last 5 years, she has been serving as the Deputy Principal of Serdang Baru Chinese Primary School, as well as carrying out her duties as a teacher-counselor.
Squeals of laughter filled the air as the little ones, no more than 12 yearsold, gingerly held a milk bottle to a cutelooking calf which stood at almost their own height! The 44 young participants aged 10 to 12 were learning hands-on to care for animals and the surrounding environment, during an outing to the Animal Farm, one of the highlights of the 3-day Children’s Learning Camp.
Teens came ‘Ahoy‘ to the fore at Nalanda’s recent “Lead-A-Ship” camp. Held from 1st to 4th December, the leadership camp had 45 teenagers bonding and becoming kalyana mittas, even as they pick up pointers to become good leaders.
