USM Trip

Last Saturday, 20th July, a group of 40 students, 4 teachers and 3 volunteers from prestigious colleges overseas went for an educational trip to the ‘ USM Muzium dan Galeri Tuanu Fauziah’ in Sungai Dua, Penang. The students enjoyed a leisure tour around the multi-story museum before attending a 2 and a half hour ceramic art workshop where they were taught basic skills on how to make ceramic earthenware out of clay. At the workshop ends, the students played traditional games made available to them for free such as congkak and batu seremban. Before heading off, the students managed to pull off a ‘wayang kulit’ presentation for the volunteers as their farewell gift. It was indeed an educational and eye-opening experience for many of them.
