PENANG: Students of SJK (T) Ramakrishna, SMK Bukit Gambir and SMJK Phor Tay here are now able to take part in The Star-NiE (Newspaper-in-Education) activities, thanks to Lumileds Lighting (M) Sdn Bhd. 

The company, which makes light emitting diodes, is sponsoring 10,000 copies of The Star for the schools, plus 6,000 copies for several other schools to be identified later.  

Lumileds executive vice-president and managing director Menko Deroos said the sponsorship was part of the company’s efforts to help raise the standard of English in schools.  

“At the same time, the pupils can also keep abreast with current events.” 

Deroos presented a mock cheque for RM10,000 to The Star’s regional associate editor K.Y. Pung.
