Reach for the Sky 2.0

     On the 20th of November 2014, Leo Club of SMK Assunta had a joint project with the Leo Club of SMK Damansara Utama. The name of this project is "Reach For The Sky 2.0".

     The main purpose of this project was to teach the children from Precious Children's Home how to make a kite and fly a kite at Taman Selayang, Kepong. The kids did an amazing job making the kites but they were even better with flying them. After that, we also had a picnic there. There were 10 Leos from our club and 9 Leos from Leo Club of Damansara Utama who took part in this project. It was held from 2.30pm to 6.00pm.

     We all enjoyed this project very much! We also held this project last year and we all have gained a lot of experiences for the people who joined this for the first time. It was indeed a great project!

Doodle Your 2014

     On the 17th of November until the 21st of November, the Leo Club of SMK Assunta carried out a project called Doodle Your 2014. For this project, a few boards were placed at SMK Assunta's canteen for a week. Students of SMK Assunta wrote or drew their unforgettable memories in the year 2014. They could also write their experiences in the year 2014. Moreover, students could also express their feelings about the year 2014.

     The aim of this project was for students to appreciate their experiences in the year 2014. It also enabled students to remember their wonderful experiences throughout the year 2014. Furthermore, students were able to share their fun experiences with everybody else.

     Many students of SMK Assunta doodles on the boards that were prepared. We got good feedbacks. Everybody really enjoyed this project. This project was definitely a success.

Random Act of Kindness

     On the 16th of November 2014, a few Leo clubs organized a Joint Random Acts of Kindness project in conjunction with Random Acts of Kindness Day. This project was held at Mid Valley Megamall and Subang Parade.

     The project involved the Leos giving out sweets to the people shopping at these malls. The Leos really enjoyed themselves and gained valuable insight and experience. The shoppers were very pleased and happy to receive little gifts from the joyful Leos. The trinkets really brightened up their day.

     We hope this project will continue each year as it indeed brought many smiles to many people's faces.

Movie Marathon

     The Movie Marathon project was held on the 14th and 21st November 2014. It was carried out in the Bilik Kuliah in our school. The project was from 10.10am to 12.30pm. The ticket price was RM2 each. We played 'Hachiko (A Dog's Story)' on the 14th of November and 'Malificent' on the 21st of November.

     The main purpose of this project was to give a chance for the Form 3 and Form 4 students to enjoy movies which they couldn't watch before or during their major examinations. Besides that, this project was also done to raise funds for the club. In addition, this project helped to bridge the gap between the students.

     We also sold snacks and drinks during the project. This movie marathon went very well and was a success. We received good support from the students. The organizing committee planned to carry it on in the following years.

Leo Captain Ball Tournament

     On the 8th of November, Leos from Leo Club of SMK Assunta participated in the Leo Captain Ball Tournament. This event was held at SMK Subang Utama's basketball court. The event was supposed to start at 8.00am. Unfortunately, due to the bad, rainy weather we had to start at 9.30am. All the Leos, as usual, arrived early and on time, so, for entertainment, the SMK Subang Utama Leos were playing a mix of awesome songs and everyone was grooving to the beat.

     Before we started off with the games, we had muffins, buns and bread as snacks. The games were intense as all the Leos played their outmost best. For lunch, we had fried mee hoon with sambal. We, the losers, but still standing tall, also had a friendly match of volleyball while the few teams were playing during the finals. We had a good laugh and bonding time.

     As the tournament came to a close, the SMK Subang Utama Leos, announced the winners, first in place was the yellow team, second, the white team and third, the black team. The best player of each team was also given medals. Sadly, the event ended earlier which was at 2.30pm due to the technical diffuculties and the rainy weather.

     Overall, all the Leos would like to thank our organizers of this event which are the Leos of SMK Subang Utama and we hope to have another tournament like this in the future!

Joint Halloween Party

     On the 31st of October 2014, 4 members from the Leo Club of SMK Assunta attended a joint Halloween party by Leo clubs of SMK Subang Utama, SMK USJ 8, SMK USJ 4, SM Sri KL and Taylor's University. The venue was at Taylor's Lakeside Campus from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.

Then, about 8.00pm, the audience get to satisfy their hunger outside the hall with the delicious variety of food provided. We also have the chance to play and win prizes, take pictures at the photo booth, and go to the haunted house, which had some good scares.

     After that at 9.30pm, we were required to go back to the hall so the show can be continued. The audiences were wowed with a few amazing performances by talented Leos. We were also entertained with the games planned out. There was also a best-dressed competition which was quite exciting. The event ended with a beat-boxing performance by Syahitan. The joint party ended after 10.30pm.

11th Annual Blind Leading The Blind Charity Walk

     On the 19th of October 2014, Leos from Leo Club of SMK Assunta participated in the 11th Blind Leading the Blind Charity Walk. This event is an annual event organized by the Lions Club of Petaling Jaya to raise funds for the needs of the patients in the Tun Hussein Onn Eye Hospital.

     The event this year was held at the Kelana Jaya Stadium and commenced around 7.30am. The stadium was bustling with life and was filled with masses of people. There were people from all walks of life that came out to support this event that day. The Leos had splendid fun leading their partners along the track and some lucky Leos got a chance lead actual blind people. It was truly a wonderful experience. That Sunday morning was a lovely morning for a walk and it was very pleasant and enjoyable.

     Our Leo Club was brought out the enthusiasm with our lively mascot and our brightly coloured banner. This intensifies the BLB experience and made it all the more fun. All along the way, we sang our school cheers non-stop and were full of spirit until the end. Not only did we have fun and gained new experiences, many Leos also made new friends and got a chance to meet many new people during the walk.

     All in all, BLB was an amazing experience for all the Leos. We hope this event will continue on every year and bring about the awareness and importance of sight to people everywhere.
