The first week of the last school holidays was a memorable and meaningful moments for the members of the English Language Society of SMK Kampung Laut.The society has organized a special trip to Seri Kasih Orphanage,The Home of the Orphans on March 31st, the first day of school holidays at Kampung Delima,Batu 8, Pasir Putih.There are a total of 75 students involved comprising of 40 form 5 male students and 35 form 3 and 4 female students There 4 accompanying teachers are Sir Rosdi,teacher-advisor of SMK Kampung Laut English Language Society,Teacher Madihah,our senior science teacher,Puan Marini,our Bahasa Melayu teacher and finally Mr Toh Bee Seng,our Physical Education teacher.We started our 65 minutes journey with two special chartered buses sponsored by YB Dato Hj Ismail Bin Haji Ibrahim,the chairman of PIBG of SMK Kampung Laut.We reached the orphanage at about 9.15 a.m.
We were greeted by the matron of the orphanage,Puan Seri Hajjah Maimunah and her delegations.The cheerful and estatic feelings of the orphans really touched our hearts.Puan Seri started with a welcoming speech.All eyes were on her and many wiped their tears at the end of her speech when many tragic stories of the orphans were revealed.We could see that there were a strong unity among the 95 orphans and they were really superb on their manners and etiquettes.We just loved the ways they behaved and lived within their circles.Sir Rosdi reciprocated with a short but very meaningful speech and then presented a cheque of RM1000 donated by the students of SMK Kampung Laut.
The morning activities started with a gotong royong project viz cleaning-up of surau and the main hall. The students were made up of 15 groups of 5 students each while some senior orphans also lent their hands.Then we proceeded to outdoor programmes such as telematches held for the female students.The male students proceeded with a friendly volleyball match.We stopped for a short break at around 11.30a.m and later were served with a light refreshment.
The next programme was when all the students and the orphans were requested to assemble at Seri Kasih main hall for the talentime show.We were entertained by the hidden talents of the orphans particularly on the group singing of nashid and coral speaking.Some of our students also joined them by presenting some classical and malay traditional songs aided by 3 plus one music.
We then had our lunch and dzohor prayer at around 1.30 p.m.We were served with very sumptuous and appetizing toasted fish mixed with beryani rice.
Our next programme was an hour tuition sessions.Our own form 4 and 5 students willingly broke up into small groups assisted the form 3 orphans mainly on Mathematics and English essays.Then our form 3 students had a study group with form 1 and 2 orphans discussing on some school works and assignments.It was indeed a short but very meaningful and helpful sessions.Most of the orphans are very hardworking and dedicated students.Some of them have topped the classes.Some even managed flying colour results.
Our last programme was photograpy and souvenirs sessions.We brought beautiful souvenirs and presented to each and every orphans.They were beaming with joy and many had willingly treated our senior students as their adopted brothers and sisters.Besides we also presented to them with large hampers which consisted of chocolates,biscuits,nuts and fresh fruits.The matron,Puan Seri Hajjah Maimunah presented her closing speech and invited all of us to come back again next year for another great programme.
We left Seri Kasih Orphanage Home at about 5 p.m.Many of us had cherished the good memories and glad that we had performed our social responsibility with the orphans of Seri Kasih Orphanage.We certainly would love to come back next year with more great programmes in hand.
