Clean sweep for Sunway’s shining star

19 year-old Katrina Ann Abdul Hadi is the proud owner of five glittering gold medals having swept all the synchronised swimming events at the 26th SEA Games in Palembang, Indonesia this year. Katrina and her team mates, having already delivered golds in the free duet, technical duet, free team and technical team events, were once again at their dazzling best, when they produced a consistent and energetic performance to overwhelm the spectators and judges in the fifth and final event, the free team combination. Performing to the song ‘Rio de Janeiro’, the team scored 75.363 points to easily win another gold medal.

CIMP students raise RM2, 500 for charity home

Synergy combined with energy produced a fruitful result as Sunway College’s Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) students charitable fundraiser managed to accumulate RM2,500 for the Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah (Taman Megah Disabled Children’s Home). The entrepreneurial and management skills of the 70 students from the Business Leadership Management Fundamentals (BLMF) class were put to test as they developed unique products such as handmade accessories, piggy banks, badges, cultural goods, fresh fruits and delicious baked goods during the 2-day charity sale in Sunway College.

Mr. John Futa, V. Baskar, Tham Thin Yin, Lecturers Liz Erskine and Dave Leonard from the Business Leadership course.

Angelina Saw Mei Yi, a BLMF student shared, “We started preparations for the charity sale 2 months in advance by conducting surveys and analysing the response towards our potential products in order to meet quality standards and customer needs. Everything had to be done with precision to ensure a smooth flow of business. We created handmade products in line with the findings from our reports in order to link the practical part of our work with what we’ve learnt in class with the theory of management functions, crucial for a business to operate.
