IT WAS a special day for hundreds of kindergarten children as all six branches of Big Apple Eduworld Sdn Bhd celebrated the pre-school’s 20th annual graduation concert last month.
Sparing no effort to put on a memorable show for their parents, the children from the Tiger Lane, Pengkalan, Ipoh Kiara, Kinta Riverfront and the two First Garden branches, danced and sang in 20 performances, including a choir session by all graduates as the grand finale of the concert.
Wearing vibrant makeup and pretty costumes to match the theme of each performance, many of the children overcame their shyness to put themselves on stage, while a handful remained obviously bashful through their performance.
Datuk Ting Sing Yiew, group managing director of the Morubina Group of Companies, the parent company of Big Apple Eduworld, highlighted some of Big Apple’s major accomplishments and plans throughout the year to continue providing quality pre-school education.
“Tapping into advanced technology, we are going to introduce online learning tools, starting with the Kinta Riverfront branch next year.
“The Kids Science exploration series is due to start as a Saturday programme in the Ipoh Kiara branch next year, whereas the E-Learning and Little Kitchen programmes started in the two First Garden branches this year,” he said when opening the concert at Kinta Riverfront Hotel and Suites on Oct 25.
Ting also announced that the Pengkalan and Tiger Lane branches will be fully operational next year as their renovation and extension work is progressing on schedule.
Ting said the company understands the importance of teachers when it comes to mentoring.
“So, we dedicate ourselves in seeking professional inputs to equip our teachers well. We also send our teachers for external courses and government educational training,” he said.
Ting also revealed that Big Apple is organising a Fun with English Language, Immersion and American Culture Camp for children aged five to seven from Dec 19 to 23.
“Hopefully, this will bring our kids to greater heights and enhance their learning experiences,” he said.
