Close Encounter with Wildlife

Here we come again, Zoo Negara!

Date: 22-Apr-2011
Crowd: 120 students, 15 teachers

“My child really got wild upon arriving at the Zoo. And you are bringing 120 of them there..?!” We have been answering this question over and over again since the day the trip was announced.

Well, seeing is believing. Some curious parents did come along driving. “Amazing” was the common feeling, after they witnessed how kids behaved and disciplined themselves in group, and enjoying.

The day was sunny but pleasant, thanks to the rain the night before which cleared the humidity. We hop up the tram which brought us to visit our favorite animals including the giraffe, the elephant, the pelican and the tiger in a most relaxing manner.

Probably the most enjoyable part was the Multiple Animal Show. The Seal was so smart that she can play all kinds of tricks, while the money-hungry Cockatoo will fly onto your arm if you hold out a RM10 note! Penguins as well as giant fishes were just next to the Showground, which we visited after lunch.

Before heading back to the school, we stopped by the Children’s World where cute little animals were within the children’s reach: rabbit, pony, goat, tortoise, and a few others. For kids who have never ever touched an animal before, the experience was simply magical!


A Sun-Maid Day

Sun-Maid, a 100-years-old California-based producer of raisins and dried fruits, came to MHOLC to conduct an educational session on 27-Apr-2011.

The Sun-Maid crew started the session with telling story about grapes growing, then the manufacturing of raisins, and the nutritional value of dried fruits. Students were then invited to come in front of the crowd for story re-telling and quiz challenge. While Tee Ren Jie of C3 Yellow did an amazing job by re-telling almost all details of the process, other boys and girls from various classes gave perfect answers to the questions and of course, won attractive prizes from Sun-Maid!

Thanks to the enthusiatic and skillful Sun-Maid crew, the whole school enjoyed the session very much. In addition, everyone of MHOLC received delicious Sun-Maid food samples!

Health Talk: "H1N1 - Facts and Myths"

On 29th January, 2011 at 9am, by MHOLC's invitation Dr. Hamshima Onn from Tropicana Medical Centre delivered her talk on the said topic at our school.

The purpose was to allow children as well as parents to have the right knowledge about Influenza-A and H1N1, so as to avoid it and deal with it the right way.

In short, Influenza-A and H1N1 are still among us, however can be effectively remedied by medicine such as Tamiflu. Unless complications related to lung infection, asthma, heart problems, etc. occured, patients can recover within 24 hours.

At the end of the talk, Dr. Hamshima demonstrated the right ways in hands cleaning to children, and door gifts from TMC was distributed. All recon it was a good community service program.

2010 Annual Concert & Graduation Ceremony

The wonderful 2010 Concert and Graduation Ceremony on 30th October was a great event.

We were pleased by the feedback from the audience that the theme "My Earth My Love" was well chosen and excellently presented by the children. Besides showing their performing talents, we believe that the children's appeal was clearly heard: We deserve a better tomorrow! Please leave us a livable environment!

Saying goodbye to our graduates was never easy, though we know that we should be more than delighted to see them stretching wings for a new horizon. Soar higher and higher, boys and girls, our heart will always be with you...
