Caring and Sharing Program

     On the 26th of April 2015, 3 probationers from the Leo Club of SMK Assunta had volunteered in the Caring and Sharing Program organised annually by the Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields. This program is aimed at inviting the unfortunate people in the community such as the spastic children, orphans, old folks and the disabled to the Maha Vihara Temple to witness a mini concert. The program was held from 7.00am to 2.00pm.

     The probationers arrived at the Buddhist Maha Vihara temple at 7 in the morning to help out with the preparations before the event. At 9.30am, they led a large group of the least fortunate people to the Asoka Hall to settle them down before the concert began. The Caring and Sharing Program 2015 was officiated at 10.00am with speeches by Batuk Michael Teoh and Datuk K. Sri Dhamaratna, The High Chief Monk of Malaysia. Then, there were a few amazing singing and dancing performances by the orphans from a few orphanages. During the program, the probationers helped to distribute food and drinks to the least fortunate.

     Overall, it was a bumbling and meaningful experience for the probationers as they had the opportunity to help the least fortunate by volunteering for the Caring and Sharing Program. They also received certificates of appreciation for their service at the end of the day.

Leo Amplified Camp 2015

     On the 17th of April 2015, the Leo Club of SMK Assunta organised an orientation camp as known as Amplified Camp for the members. Around 70 members who took part in this camp. It was held at our school, SMK Assunta, from 3.00pm to 8.00pm. The main purpose of this event was to develop teamwork and build a stronger bond among the members.

     Registration started at 3.00pm and we ran around the school for warm up session. Before any of the activities started, all the members were given an uncooked pasta to take care of throughout the day. This was a challenge to see how responsible the members are. The ice breaking games and team building activities were held in our school gallery. It was really fun as it felt like we were going through The Hunger Games. After that, we were divided into 8 groups, each group consisting of 8 members and each group had to come up with a team cheer.

     After all the groups had presented their cheers, the real fun began. Throughout the canteen and the Dataran Assunta, there were many stations and each held a task that had to be fulfilled. The games ended at 6.30pm and after that everybody had a water fight with everyone ending up drenched.

     At 7.00pm, we changed into our dry clothes and had dinner. The camp ended at 8.00pm. Although it was a tiring day, it was definitely worth while and memorable.
