THE School of Hospitality and Creative Arts (SHCA) of Management and Science University (MSU) is well-known for its programmes to develop students’ creativity and critical thinking skills.

SHCA’s latest event — the annual MSU Heritage Walk Series: Putrajaya Iconic Tour was among them, being part of its “Major Mentoring” programme.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, students managed to run the event smoothly by adapting to the new normal. This time around, it was run both physically and virtually.

A total of 11 checkpoints around Putrajaya were explored in this event which was the fourth Heritage Walk organised by SHCA after Kuala Lumpur Heritage Walk in 2018, Royal Klang Town Heritage Walk in 2019 and Shah Alam Heritage Walk 2021: Virtual Edition.

MSU Heritage Walk Series: Putrajaya Iconic Tour was flagged off by MSU president Prof Tan Sri Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid at the Putrajaya Wetland.

Also present were Tourism Malaysia senior officials, senior management of MSU and students.

A combination of 1,200 students, alumni and mentors from SHCA participated in this programme. Collaborators facilitating the walk were Tourism Malaysia and Putrajaya Corporation (PPj).

The objectives of this programme were to strengthen bonds between mentor, mentee and alumni, as well as to provide them with exposure to and experience of heritage and attractions in Putrajaya, Malaysia’s administrative capital.

MSU Heritage Walk Series: Putrajaya Iconic Tour also aimed to support Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which include SDG 3 (good health and well-being), SDG 4 (quality education), SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities), and SDG 17 (partnerships for goals).

The iconic sites visited were Taman Botani Putrajaya, Istana Melawati, Tangga Putrajaya Steps, Seri Perdana Bridge, Seri Saujana Bridge, Seri Gemilang Bridge, Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Justice Palace, PPj, Perdana Putra dan Dataran Putra.

Additionally, RM8,000 was given to the MSU Foundation. The donation was handed over by SHCA dean Azizul Jamaludin to MSU endowment and communication senior vice-president Datuk Rosli Yusof.
