THURSDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER – Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Vice-Chancellor, Professor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah encouraged all staff working at the Chancellery Department to be involved in planting at the premises of the building.
According to him, this effort was aimed at supporting the implementation of EcoCampus to preserve the natural environment of the campus.
“UMS has now become one of the tourist destinations in Sabah. Its beautiful landscape has made it becoming more attractive especially when the flowers start blooming along the pathways in the campus, thus becoming a picturesque view to visitors who would capture this moment,” he enthused.
He added, planting activity should be made a hobby by UMS staff as the results would be enjoyed by the campus community.
Some fruit trees and vegetables were planted during the launching such as durian, spinach, water spinach, brinjal, and ulam raja (Cosmos caudatus).
Also present were the Principal and Senior Officers of the University, including staff and students of UMS. – ZMD (fl)
