Student wins a Full Tuition Fee Waiver from Sunway College in Public Speaking Competition

“Plastic didn’t decide to kill itself, to jump into the river and cause pollution. We are the ones who decide there’s the trash bin and there’s the river. So why blame plastic for pollution when we are the ones who decide to throw our trash into the river and not into the rubbish bin”, this was one of the points made by seventeen year old Ethan Ganes who emerged as Champion in the Public Speaking & Essay Writing Competition 2014.

The competition organised by Sunway College together with the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Malaysia saw a crowd of 792 fourth and fifth formers, led by 88 teachers from 49 schools, as far away as Ipoh, Seremban and Melaka attending the event. While their fellow friends attended the talks held within the Sunway campus, 90 students participated in the public speaking competition and 88 in the essay writing competition.

Sunway Students Spread the Love with TGIF Foodbank

Donating daily necessities is one of the most effective ways of supporting those in need. The Sunway Student Volunteers (SSV) successfully raised RM3,600 worth of food items and RM1,150 cash to be donated to the entities under the umbrella of Grace Community Services (GCS).

The project, aptly called “Turn Groceries in for Foodbank” (TGIF Foodbank), was initiated by SSV and Sunway Student Services Department (SSD) in partnership with GCS, a registered non-profit charitable organisation in Klang for charitable homes, rehabilitation centres, feeding centres, rural schools, poor families and individuals.
