The programme was held concurrently at all residential colleges including those at UMS Labuan International Campus and the Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture, Sandakan.
The event, which started at 7.00 am was participated by more than 3,000 students and staff including residential college fellows and the cleaning company engaged to clean all colleges.
According to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs and Alumni (HEPA), Associate Professor Dr. Ismail Ali, the programme would be included in the annual calendar of the Student Affairs Department.
“Events like this help to unite all residents especially students who stay in the colleges with the college management thus creating a bond that would contribute to a cleaner and more comfortable environment,” he said.
An aerobics exercise as part of a warming up session was also held before the gotong-royong.
Also present were the Head of Student Affairs Department, Azmi Jumat . – (fl)
