School holds third ICT Carnival
KOTA KINABALU: The notion “knowledge is power” is essential as the global economy is in transition to a knowledge based economy, and as such exposure to ICT from an early age can help develop our children’s knowledge, creativity and interest so they can achieve their full potential.
“With the guidance from teachers and parents, we can nurture our children’s knowledge and interest through the use of ICT, thus laying the foundation for their success in the future that will enable our children to contribute to society and the nation.”
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) deputy president cum Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) Malaysia chairman Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai said this during the closing and prize giving ceremony of SK (C) Anglo-Chinese School 3rd ICT Carnival.
“The use of interactive multimedia programs enhances the students’ learning process, and as can be seen during the school’s ICT carnival, students use their ICT knowledge to show their creativity through the numerous competitions organized by the schools to encourage students to participate and fully utilize the school’s ICT facilities,” added Dr Yee.
Dr Yee said the use of multimedia programs also helped boost the teaching efficiency of teachers that enable students to achieve their full potential.
Dr Yee also congratulated and praised the school as its ICT programs were given due recognition by the Ministry of Education Malaysia when it won the the National level ICT Leadership Award 2016 (Anugerah Kepimpinan Teknologi Maklumat & Komunikasi National) and the Best School Resource Centre Award (primary school category) in 2016.
