I had a briefing session with the Forms 4 and 5 librarians this morning. Tomorrow afternoon the 40 boys and girls will be going to visit 10 needy senior citizens at the Manabi'ul Ulum Religious Education Centre in Lekir. All of them are ladies who are in their seventies or eighties.
The boys and girls will be bringing along with them the Festive Goodie bags that we have prepared for the old folks. The money for the Goodie bags was from the contributions of the teachers, staff and students of the school. I also had contributions for my former principal, Puan Siti Arfah, Tuan Haji Hasnin's sister and also my friend, Mrs Wong who donated in the name of her late husband.
During the briefing, the librarians were told about what attire to wear, the time the bus departs for the centre and what to do there. The students will be divided into 10 groups. Each group of 4 students would be given the task of going to the quarters of one senior citizen. They are to present her with the Goodie bag and also spend some time with the lady. I told that doing charity does not necessary mean donating in cash and kind, one can also contribute by spending time with the elderly.
