FRIDAY, 8 NOVEMBER –
A study tour by the Missionary Training Centre Kemas Kindergarten, Sikuati to the Rural Medical Education Centre (PPPD) recently had provided an early glimpse on health and personal hygiene for the participants comprising children.
One of the teachers of the kindergarten accompanying the delegation, Kamariah Hajar said that the kindergarten had chosen PPPD for their study tour because the facilities on healthcare were able to provide an initial idea on the field of medicine to the students.
She added that the health talk presented by PPPD staff had given them an invaluable experience and lessons to the children on healthcare and its importance to our daily life.
“We can see the expressions of the children’s faces when they were taken on a tour round this centre; among them were nursing area, gymnasium, laboratories, etc. This is something new to them and this experience is needed to boost their interest to join the medical or science fields in future,” she said.
Meanwhile, PPPD staff, Mohd Rodzie said the centre accepts visits from primary and secondary schools around that area. He said that they would include talks on healthcare, explanation on patient nursing care, etc.
Thus, he welcomes school students to the centre and is always open for collaborations and at the same time do their part in providing corporate social responsibility to the surrounding community. – MA
