Students understand Independence through art

14th September, 2017

By NOOR ZAFIRA SHAFIE

PUTATAN: Students seem to understand and grasp better the meaning of Independence through art. It may be the new way of incorporating the spirit of patriotism among the young generation.

SMK Putatan Head of Pre-University Student Affairs Unit, Asnie Marjan said art is a new way to create Independence awareness.

“Many incentives have been introduced to the students and for the first time, this year, we create an idea to develop the spirit among our students through arts,” he said.

He pointed out the success of students in visual creativity at SMK Putatan that won the first prize in the Graffiti Challenge competition recently.

“With the bonding that we’ve created among our students, our school has achieved an excellent performance and this is the proof that art drives new millennium independence for our gen-y,” he said after opening a ‘Merdeka@Community for Putatan district’ at the school here yesterday.

Meanwhile, Independence programme advisor, Abal Muskam Mislin said the school in collaboration with visual creative students, teachers and Community 1 Malaysia (K1M) also made the programme to inform the students on the importance of preserving independence.

“We choose the umbrella as the symbol because its shape symbolises unity, purity and protection. “This as a way to educate our generation especially in this school about the importance of maintaining harmony and unity,” he told New Sabah Times.

He said students and teachers brought 320 umbrellas that were donning pathways.

Chairman of K1M Sabah, Tahir Mohd Soon said that good values should be imbued in students. “To maintain our multiracial harmony, we should understand the history of our country, how we get our independence and all the difficulties our forefathers fought and struggled with.

“As the new generation, please learn and look at what our country had struggled before. Today, we are blessed, safe and successful because of it,” he added.

A total of 197 lower Pre-U students attended the programme. Also present were South West Coast Division Information Officer, Peter Tong Ah Pin, District Information Officer, Alias Jaafar and SMK Putatan Senior Assistant Curriculum, Yahya Abdul Abbas.
