TELUPID: ‘1 Pupil, 1 Dictionary’ programme was officially launched in SK Gabungan Telupid on the 7th of February 2017. This programme aims to encourage the usage of English Dictionary among the pupils especially the Level 2 pupils (Year 4, 5 & 6). Though the programme did not hit the target of 100%, still it was a big achievement as 87% of the Level 2 pupils were equipped with an English Dictionary.
Madam Sokulin Binti Bolintok, the headmistress of SK Gabungan Telupid, in her speech during the officiating ceremony expressed her gratitude towards the pupils’ participation in this event. She hoped that this programme will benefit the pupils especially in improving their vocabulary in the English language.
This programme also received great support from the Teacher-Parents’ Association of SK Gabungan Telupid. Without the parents’ commitment, this event would not be a success.
As a continuation of this program, a simple language contest will be organised during every assembly on Tuesday which is the ‘Dictionary Race.’ In this contest, the pupils will have to find words from the dictionary and the fastest pupil will be awarded with a sticker which serves as an encouragement.
It is hoped that this programme will carry positive impacts to all the pupils of SK Gabungan Telupid especially in improving their vocabulary in the English Language.
