S P Setia Foundation launched the Setia Caring School Programme in an effort to nurture empathetic, morally grounded and caring society amongst school children. The launch was officiated by YB Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching, the Deputy Minister of Higher Education who are also the former Patron of the Setia Caring School Programme.
Guests were enlightened by the outstanding performances by the adopted schools – SK Meru Jalan Tap, SJK(C) Lee Min and SJK (T) Ladang Vallambrosa, an illusionist that thrilled the audiences with his magic tricks, and launch gimmick of transforming a toy bear into the huge Setia Foundation mascot bear!
The Foundation chairman Tan Sri Dato’ Dr Wan Mohd Zahid Mohd Noordin said while making quality education accessible to all children was important, it was equally important to ensure they were taught other skills. The idea of “caring” should be promoted among the community, especially the children.
