English Fest kicks off


LET’S improve our command of English. That was the underlying idea behind the English Fest rolled out by the Coalition of Malaysian Sikh Organisations (CMSO) in Petaling Jaya in September.

Some 40 students took part in the one-day session, part of CMSO’s English Enrichment Programme initiative to prepare them for higher education and improve their prospects in the job market.

EngFest-PJ_0278Serving and retired educators made up the team of facilitators led by Satwant Kaur. The others were Matishwar Kaur, Gurdarshan Kaur, Disvimther Kaur, Bachan Kaur, Ravinder Kaur, Thevy Rajaretnam, Dr Sheena Kaur, Maher Vann Singh and Veereen Kaur.

English Fest will also be held in other towns in Malaysia in due course. The next programme, English CAmp on Creative Story Writing, will be held in Petaling Jaya on Nov 9.
