KOTA KINABALU: The Ro­tary Club of Kota Kinabalu Pearl (RCKK Pearl) Sabah to­gether with the Sabah Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment has launched an English Cor­ner at SK Po­motodon re­cently.

The event falls un­der RCKK Pearl’s sig­na­ture project REAL (Ru­ral Fo­cus-English For All).

This project REAL ini­tially started with three (3) schools last year com­pris­ing of SK St Ed­mund, Kota Be­lud; SK Kawang; Pa­par; and SK Pekan, Ki­ulu.

This year, the RCKK Pearl will carry out the same project at three other schools, namely SK Po­motodon, Inanam; SK Man­dali­pau, Pa­par; and SK Ru­gard­ing, Tuaran.

RCKK Pearl will con­tinue to im­ple­ment its project REAL by launch­ing English Cor­ners in more ru­ral schools if its fi­nances so per­mit.

Project REAL is not only com­mit­ted to set­ting up the English cor­ners each with ap­prox­i­mately 700 books, pro­vid­ing com­put­ers and pleas­ant as well as con­ducive English area com­plete with floor mats and cush­ions for read­ing com­fort, but also aims to bridge the gap be­tween ru­ral and ur­ban schools in terms of English pro­fi­ciency.

One way to see progress in the stu­dents’ English Pro­fi­ciency can be mon­i­tored through the exam re­sults.

Two ac­tiv­i­ties had been or­gan­ised re­cently un­der the project REAL which are the In­ter­school Com­pe­ti­tion and the Teach­ers Train­ing work­shop. Through such com­pe­ti­tion and work­shops, the tal­ents of stu­dents can be dis­cov­ered and their tal­ent can be de­vel­oped fur­ther.

Apart from the schools, the aim is hav­ing a con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment to pro­vide more op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to use the English lan­guage.

The event was suc­cess­fully launched with the ef­fort and as­sis­tance of the Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment, the District Ed­u­ca­tion Li­ai­son of­fi­cers, the school head­mas­ter, English teach­ers as well as the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the stu­dents.
