MORE THAN 3,000 students of Taylor’s International School campuses in Kuala Lumpur and Puchong came together for a two-day National Day celebration.
The highlight was the formation of “Circles of Unity” by 1,200 students from both campuses.
“It was a significant formation as the students wanted to show that independence is only possible if the country stands united regardless of race, religion and background,” said Kuala Lumpur campus principal Peter Wells.
In conjunction with the #AnakAnakMalaysia campaign, all the students wore the campaign’s wristband.
Eco World Development Group Bhd in collaboration with Star Media Group Bhd had sponsored 2,600 pieces of the wristband in support of the event for both schools.
“We are pleased to see the different cultures coming together to celebrate National Day.
“Besides the formation of the Circles of Unity, we also had a parade, cultural performances and poem reading,” said Puchong campus principal David Flint.
In line with the school’s core value of respecting and caring for each other, this celebration was one of the many ways where students were exposed to different cultures and reminded them of the journey that Malaysia took to gain its independence and peace.
