The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

DUTCH LADY Milk In­dus­tries Ber­had (Dutch Lady Malaysia) and the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion (MoE) re­cently an­nounced the win­ners of the Anugerah 3K & Pro­jek Khas 3C at an event in Kuala Lumpur.

The Anugerah 3K & Pro­jek Khas 3C 2016 pro­gramme awarded nine win­ning schools from a list of 32 school fi­nal­ists (re­fer be­low for the com­plete list of win­ners). All win­ners re­ceived cash prizes com­pris­ing var­ied amounts of RM5,000, RM4,000 and RM3,000, along with sports equip­ment worth RM1,000.

The Anugerah 3K & Project Khas 3C is an an­nual na­tional school awards pro­gramme or­gan­ised by the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts of Dutch Lady Malaysia and the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry. The aim of this pro­gramme is to ed­u­cate and recog­nise school’s ef­forts in at­tain­ing bet­ter hy­giene, health and safety among pri­mary and sec­ondary schools.

Dur­ing the awards cer­e­mony, deputy ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Datuk P. Ka­malanathan con­grat­u­lated the win­ners and Dutch Lady Malaysia’s ef­forts. “Con­grat­u­la­tions and a job well done to Dutch Lady for rais­ing aware­ness among stu­dents on the im­por­tance of healthy nutri­tion and ex­er­cise for healthy liv­ing. Th­ese as­pects en­sure a good and holis­tic learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment that will lead to bet­ter at­ten­dance. Higher at­ten­dance leads to greater suc­cess for stu­dents not only in aca­demic pur­suits but in char­ac­ter growth. Th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties pro­vide im­pact in im­prov­ing the qual­ity of learn­ing in Malaysia for stu­dents. It is good to in­crease and sus­tain col­lab­o­ra­tions be­tween the govern­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor so more ben­e­fi­cial ini­tia­tives can be im­ple­mented in the fu­ture,” he said.

This year, the event in­cor­po­rated a new pro­ce­dure for par­tic­i­pat­ing schools to sub­mit their en­tries and con­nect to re­ceive com­pe­ti­tion up­dates – via a web por­tal. For more in­for­ma­tion, please re­fer to the Anugerah 3K web­site.
