It is a great feeling to see the next generation progressing and becoming smarter. As we can see, one of our Tamil schools is well on its way to proving to the world that its students are capable of achieving. They won two gold medals, one silver medal, and two other special awards in the recent science innovation competition held in Bali, Indonesia. The contest takes place from September 15 to 19.
The competition brings together ten countries, including Korea, Egypt, Thailand and Malaysia. The winners representing our country are Thinesha Jayaprakasam, Tivashini L. Jayabalan, Velan Sivakumar, Aashri Kumaresan, Lenisha Ravichandran, Tharani Mohan, Thanushri Jayaseelan, Kishore Jayaseelan and Tharunesh Jayaseelan from SJK(T) Ladang Semenyih.
They came up with three scientific inventions in the competition: paper made from dried leaves, clothes protectors hung tool to dry and they also created sweets from Acalypha Indica, a famous Indian leaf (Kuppaimeni Keerai). With these inventions, they brought home gold and silver medals to Malaysia as well as two special awards, which is all the joy our society could hope for.
Their victory was proudly celebrated by SJK(T) Ladang Semenyih Director, Mr. Nedunchezhiyan Kuppusamy. He congratulated all the winners and teachers who put in a lot of effort to win this competition.
He also added by thanking specific individuals like the respective teachers Ms. Uma Devi, Ms Shamini, and Ms Rajammal for guiding the students theoretically and practically throughout the competitive rounds, the Director old executive, Mrs, Sundari, lecturer Ms Thangeshwary, and Dr Umayal provided great support in motivating the students during the competition. The Director also thanked all parents, donors, private movements and President Mr. Johnson for their cooperation.
Unlike that era, children in this era are more progressive and forward-thinking than any adults. Children are also more likely to bring great change to our world because their brains are more flexible and they can think out of the box. Indeed, children today are exposed to more information through many platforms. Therefore, children are no longer dependent on traditional learning methods of only absorbing knowledge from books and the Internet.
Witnessing these progress from our Tamil schools and students gives great hope to our future generations and builds a perfect image for society to perceive. Often, parents pay more attention to their child’s learnings process without realizing their child’s true abilities. Now we know what happens if we put our hopes and efforts in the best interests of our children, they can be even better and more successful in their chosen field.
