2010 武术生活营 Wushu Exposure Camp 2010

MARTIAL art enthusiasts will have the chance to learn from former world wushu champion Ho Ro Bin, aka Ho Robin, during a four-day Wushu Exposure Camp 2010 to be held for the first time at the Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang from December 16.

Organised by Ding Feng Wushu Academy, the camp’s main mission is to further develop the sport by promoting it among students.

The Penang-born Robin is the only Malaysian exponent who has won gold medals in all major championships — the World and Asian championships, Asian Games and SEA Games. After being involved in competitions for 10 years, he retired in 2006.

Winning the gold medal in the 2002 Asian Games in Busan was one of his highest achievements because he won an event which required consistency in all the combined events of three disciplines — the nanquan (southern style boxing), nangun (cudgel) and nandao (broadsword).

State Youth and Sports Committee chairman Lydia Ong said the camp was open to participants, aged between nine and 18, who were expected to come from other states including Kedah, Kuala Lumpur, Negri Sembilan and Johor.

“The camp not only focuses on wushu training but there will also be discussions on sport injuries and treatments, and team building games.

“Along with other national and state exponents, Robin, whose gold medal exploits are well known, will mould participants to be more independent and become better team players,” she said.

Ding Feng Wushu Academy will also be sponsoring orphans to join the camp so that they too can stand a chance to learn basic wushu skills.

The motto of the camp is ‘Play more, learn more’, which is also the motto of their main sponsor, Milo.

王國慧:愛護地球個人做起‧學生須入社區搞環保

(檳城‧大山腳)檳州行政議員王國慧說,愛護地球應從個人做起,特別是學生有了環保意識後,就必須深入社區灌輸環保意識。

她說,地球逐漸暖化變遷,人類應該醒悟及提昇愛護地球的意識。

“別再破壞大自然,以免下一代失去一個美麗的地球。”

她說,學生們必須深入社區,鼓勵民眾愛護環境,共同打造一個清潔又衛生的生活環境。

王國慧昨日(11月18日)在日新獨中,為該校主持推展“吾愛社區”整潔環保運動時,這麼說。

她說,州政府會積極推動環保運動,包括號召民間團體及非政府組織繼續參與,共同把檳州打造成最綠化的國際城市。

陳奇傑:日新獨中生實踐感恩信條

日新獨中校長陳奇傑說,“吾愛社區”整潔環保運動是該校有史以來所辦的最大型服務社區活動,共有200位學生及董家教和教職員的參與,威省市政局、大山腳警方和志願消拯隊都給予配合,聚集在校園前展開社區大掃除工作。

他說,這項活動可讓日新獨中的學生實踐十大信條之一的感恩信條,同時也應州政推廣整潔與環保運動的努力並和社區保持緊密聯繫及回饋社會。

World Children’s Day & Chef Cook For Charity Day

Penang exco member Lydia Ong Kok Fooi said about 40 stalls would be set up selling delicacies from 10am to 4pm.

She said the proceeds would be channelled towards the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM).

Besides a jumble sale selling various kitchen utensils and second-hand furniture, there would also be a dedicated children’s activity programme featuring carriage rides, mini petting zoo, face painting and clown performances.

“Many people aren’t aware about autism. These special kids must not be forgotten, as they really need society’s care,” Ong, who is state Youth, Sports, Women, Family and Community Development Committee chairman.

The event is jointly organised by Ong’s office, NASOM, the Penang Sports Council and the Chefs Association of Malaysia Penang Chapter.

NASOM chairman Rosli Hanafi explained that autism is a life-long development disability that affects children at birth.

Its advisor Dr Sim Joo Seng said autistic kids need more attention and help, otherwise they would face difficulties adapting to a formal school setting.

He added that they hoped to raise at least RM80,000 from the event.

All sales will be done on a coupon basis, with each booklet, priced at RM20, on sale at NASOM Penang Branch’s premises at 32 and 34 Jalan Pantai Jerejak in Bayan Lepas, as well as various other locations to be announced later.

Visitors to the carnival may also participate in a guess-the-value-of-the-hamper contest for only RM1. The one who comes up with a figure closest to the actual value gets to take the hamper home.

For more information on coupons or to make donations, call 04-6587034.

Date : 20 November 2010 (Saturday)

日新獨中響應整潔環保 18日出動學生掃街

(大山腳8日訊)日新獨立中學將於18日(週四)上午9時至10時半,舉辦“吾愛社區”整潔環保運動,當天該校學生將清理校園,也將清理整條愛士頓街道。

校長陳奇傑周一在記者會指出,該校是首次舉辦清潔運動,主要是為了實踐學生十大信條,即“日新獨中是感恩的”。

他說,該校也響應政府推動的整潔與環保運動,及培養學生與社區保持緊密聯繫,並以實際行動回饋社會及落實“大山腳是我的家”理念。

“整潔環保靠大家的精神,藉著此活動,讓學生有機會對愛士頓街道做出一些貢獻。我希望愛士頓街的商家也能積極響應,打造一個清潔環境。”

武拉必州議員王國慧指出,該校的清潔環保活動與州政府的環保理念不謀而合,而她是該區州議員,非常樂意配合校方。

“環保是救地球的最基本工作,為了不讓地球暖化,環保不能只是口號,也該有實際行動。環保也應從家裡做起,學校老師也應配合推動及教育學生環保的重要,而政府也應進行環保活動。”

日新獨中董事部總務拿督楊雲貴指出,環保是全人類最關注的課題,就連商家都非常注重環保,並棄用非環保用品。而日新在環保方面一直不遺餘力,早已要把日新校園打造成一座花園,並灌輸學生環保意識。

王國慧:助政府照顧環境衛生‧民眾別亂丟垃圾

(檳城‧大山腳)檳州行政議員王國慧指出,照顧環境衛生並不只是政府責任,如果人民一直抱著錯誤的觀念,不去照顧環境衛生,亂丟垃圾,那無論政府如何清理,也不能保持地方衛生。

王國慧昨日(11月7日)到寶珠花園出席大掃除時指出,雖然地方政府是有責任來維持社區的乾淨,但是人民也必須要有環保意識。

“不隨意製造垃圾,不把垃圾丟在溝渠里,因為環境肮髒,還有溝渠阻塞,最後吃虧的還是居民本身。”

寶珠花園大掃除防蚊症

她也說,目前全國已敲響骨痛熱症的警鐘,在寶珠花園附近雖然沒有骨痛熱症的病例,但是為了未雨綢繆,所以必須進行環境清洁的工作。

當天,威省市議員黃俊福,還有武拉必新村鄉委會主席洪敦吉也到場與民一起進行清淨環境工作。
