Just last week, a photography contest exhibition was held at our school. It was something that I looked forward to because I just love photography. The exhibition features the award winning photos of a photography contest organised by CIMB foundation( CIMB is Malaysia's second largest financial services provider) . For the photography contest, participants are required to take a creative photo of a cause on community development, sports or education and write a short essay of about 100 words explaining why the cause deserves funding from CIMB Foundation. In the contest, one of our students Ronny Izwani Husni emerged as the first prize winner for school category (at the national level). We are so proud of him..
For the contest, Ronny took a compelling photo and wrote an essay about the need to improve an old folk’s home located in Kuala Terengganu by providing better facilities for the comfort of the residents. He walked away with a cash prize of RM10,000 and the school gets RM15,000 in which the money has to be spent on charity projects for the old folk's home. In school, another teacher and I are in charge of the charity projects at the Old Folk's Home.
3rd prize winner
In conjunction with the event, CIMB also presented a year's sponsorship of the The Star's newspapers in Education to the school principal.
As for me ,the teacher, I never take part in any photography contest but I am so happy with the Glam Blogger award which I got from Hidayah- One Day At A Time. Thank you very much Hidayah. I really appreciate it. Dapat award kat blog ni pun dah cukup happy. I would like to extend the Glam Blogger Award to three friendly bloggers with impressive photoblogs . They are Nat, Biana and Cheryl.
