Special needs pupils win medals in Singapore arts fest

THREE special needs students from SJK (T) Jalan Yahya Awal have won bronze medals in a Singapore arts festival, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The 8th Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) was held online on July 24 and 25 with a panel of international educators as judges.

Nilesh Durairaju, Oviya Sri Rahuraman and Tharunan Ramachandran presented three works entitled The Lion And The Mouse, Good Night Goose and Elephant Friends in the Story Telling- Performance Arts (Solo) category.

Headmaster M. Jeganathan said the school as well as the students’ parents were delighted to see their children excel on an international stage.

“Their achievement shows that pupils with the right guidance and opportunities can shine,” he said.

He also thanked special education teachers M. Paritha, A. Rohini and K. Kirthanasri for guiding the students.

> Police in Tamil Nadu, India, have arrested one of the burglars who left a mocking note after breaking into a state minister’s villa, Makkal Osai reported. The villa belonging to Minister for Water Resources Durai Murugan was broken into in April this year. The minister’s family was not there.

The burglars did not find the cash and valuables they expected to find, and vented their frustration by scribbling on the wall with lipstick, asking the owner why he did not leave even 100 rupees, with another note in a school notebook saying they could not take anything as not even a single rupee was found.

Smashing up a TV to make their point, the burglars stole the CCTV recording hard disk to avoid any footage of them being found.
