To frontliners, with love

A Thank You card drawn by SK (P) Methodist pupil Chan Teng Yan.

PUPILS of SK (P) Methodist in Ipoh have drawn thank you cards and dedicated them to frontliners fighting the Covid-19 outbreak.

The school’s headmistress Peggy Wong said the artworks were posted on the SK (P) Methodist’s Facebook page to encourage the heroes during this trying time.

“Everyone is so grateful to the nation’s heroes and the school wants to take the time to thank all the frontliners.

“We hope to keep their spirits up. Everyone plays an important part in this battle, ” she said.

She added that 57 drawings created by pupils from Year One to Six had been posted.

Wong said the drawings were part of the pupils’ Moral homework during the movement control order (MCO).

“It all started with the declaration of the MCO last month in the midst of the school holidays.

“No one was allowed to travel or even venture out to their neighbourhood, so the pupils were getting restless.

“The teaching staff then came up with the idea for the pupils to fill their time by drawing and at the same time express appreciation to our frontliners, ” she said, adding that SK (P) Methodist had 673 pupils and 48 teachers.

Wong said many parents were supportive of this activity.

“It opened up a path of communication for the family.

“Moreover, the pupils are doing what they like best without any stress, ” she said.

She would look at the posts daily and award merit points to those who posted their drawings.

Wong said teachers used online platforms to assign homework to the pupils.
