KUALA LUMPUR: About 50 Chinese students are having a whale of a time in the city as part of their study tour to Malaysia and Singapore.

Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) crime prevention club chairman Datuk Seri Johny Ch’ng Ewe Gee said the programme was timely as it coincided with the month-long National Day celebrations.

“We are hosting these Chinese students, who are from several primary and secondary schools in major cities such as Beijing and Shanghai.

“To make them feel at home, we invited 30 students from SMJK Chung Hwa Klang to interact with them as a symbolic gesture of friendship between Malaysia and China.

“In addition, 40 students from Saito University College also joined in to share their experiences at the tertiary level,” he said when contacted.

Ch’ng, who is also an MCPF national exco member and former Pahang MCPF chairman, said the participants were given a historical briefing on Malaysia and the police force before being taken on a guided tour of the Royal Malaysia Police Museum in Tasik Perdana.

He said the Chinese students were also treated to Musang King durians before posing for a group photo with their Malaysian peers.

“Besides crime prevention events, MCPF is also actively embarking on nation-building activities to instil discipline, patriotism and leadership qualities in the students. We want the younger generation to have a sense of belonging to our beloved country,” he added.

Ch’ng said the tripartite interaction was a good platform to share the country’s education system with foreigners.

“Many students are active members of the crime prevention club in their respective schools. This is where MCPF plays a role in educating and disseminating information on crime prevention from time to time. We drive home the point that crime does not pay,” he added.

Also present during the programme were MCPF exco members Datuk Kamarudin Md Ali, Datuk Seri Chong Chin Fung and Datuk Kenneth Ch’ng.
