In addition, the trainers covered hot UPSR topics with the pupils during the workshop.
Attendee Harjeet Kaur, 12, from Bangsar felt that the programme was very good.
“I learnt a lot especially how to answer questions using correct sentences and how to make fewer mistakes when writing essays in Bahasa Malaysia and English,” she said.
Eian Brian Towle said the workshop’s experienced speakers were thorough and helpful.
“It’s my first time at a Kuntum workshop and I do not mind going for another educational workshop organised by the magazine in the future.
“It gives me more confidence to answer the questions in the coming exam,” said Towle.
Another participant Mohd Shahrul Rizal Song from Subang Jaya said he had received many study tips on the subjects covered.
“I found the whole workshop very helpful and have benefited greatly especially in Bahasa Malaysia as I am from a Chinese school,” said Mohd Shahrul.
All participants were presented with a certificate of participation by the magazine and four past-year question workbooks sponsored by Sasbadi Sdn Bhd.
Kuntum will be holding a holiday workshop this November titled Kuntum Holiday Workshop.
