World Diabetes Day Awareness Campaign 2015

     On the 14th and 15th of November 2015, a 2-day World Diabetes Day Awareness Campaign 2015 was held by the Leo Club of SMK Assunta online. The aim of this campaign was to promote awareness about diabetes. We posted up posters explaining about diabetes, the symptoms of diabetes, the risk factors, home remedies, and a cheat sheet on how to prevent diabetes on our social media. We hope the information we have provided was helpful and that the public would be more knowledgeable about diabetes. The posters are open to viewing under our album “World Diabetes Day Awareness Campaign 2015” on our Facebook account, Leo Assunta.

A Visit To Precious Children's Home

     On 14th November 2015, 10 Leos visited Precious Children’s Home, a “Spotlight On Children” project. The aim of the project was to provide help to the unfortunate children who grew up without the loving care of their parents. There were 13 children in the orphanage ranging from 6 to 18 years of age. The visit was from 12:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. We donated stationeries and 58 books that were collected from the previous book donation drive. During lunch, we passed out nasi lemak to the kids. 

    The Leos then helped to clean out some of the spoiled items and moved some furniture. We also taught the children a way of keeping their cupboards clean and help them with folding their clothes. Shortly after that, we had a brief ice breaking session with the kids to get to know them better. We even took the kids out to a nearby park to play and all of us enjoyed the time that was spent. It was overall a very fun project and being able to make the children smile was an experience we would never forget.

Boo...tiful Night 2015

     On the 31st of October 2015, a few Leos attended “Boo…tiful Night 2015”, a Halloween party at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus. The party was jointly organised by the Leo Club of Taylor's University Lakeside Campus, the Leo Club of Petaling Jaya Integrity, and the Leo Club of SMK Assunta. 

    The event started off with a short video of the mystery of the death of Lady Alexandra. The participants were then assigned to their respective teams. The participants were assigned to go to 3 stations to find out the truth behind Lady Alexandra's death. There were also mini games after each station such as charades. Dinner was comprised of Halloween-inspired finger foods and main courses by a culinary student of Taylor's University. It was a fun-filled event and everyone had a good taste of the spirit of Halloween. ROAR!
