PUPILS from SK Wellesley in George Town, Penang, showed their appreciation to frontliners from several uniformed bodies and departments in their own personal way.

From drawings and paper cuttings to paintings and handwritten notes, 302 pupils from Year One to Year Six made personalised cards for the warriors who are keeping the public safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The school’s parent-teacher association chairman Mohd Faizal Abu Bakar said the programme was initiated as a way to thank frontliners in curbing the virus besides boosting their morale.

The pupils’ handmade appreciation cards were for frontliners in the Royal Malaysian Police, Health Ministry, Malaysian Civil Defence Force, Penang Island City Council, People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) and Armed Forces.

“These frontliners have been protecting people since Day One of the pandemic.

“We want to inculcate the spirit of appreciation in the pupils to our frontliners who are committed to their jobs.
