Historic moment as pupils from two Malaysian schools join in Youth Strike for Climate

A wave of environmental consciousness is sweeping across young people in southern Penang Island.

Pupils from two schools in Malaysia created history this morning by becoming the first schoolchildren to participate in the Youth Strike for Climate global campaign, which is taking places in a series of Friday protests around the world.

The Sungai Ara Tamil primary school organised a “postcard-making competition against climate change” this morning with over 100 pupils participating. Five winners of the postcard competition were awarded prizes and lots of small consolation prizes too.

Half way through the event, heads turned when another hundred pupils from the nearby Al-Itqan primary and secondary schools, accompanied by teachers, dropped by. Full article on Aliran website

For historic moment these kids shpuld watch ‘Hapuslah Air Matamu’ on RTM TV1 9.30pm tonite. It is a 70s hit movie starring the late Sharifah Aini, Broery and Latif Ibrahim. Witness the malay dressing in Malaysia before the influence of Iranian Revolution. And that’s Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah!

Malaysia investigates women who discussed their ‘dehijabbing’.

Move by Islamic authorities condemned as attempt to ‘intimidate women activists’.

How to explain if they find out the truth? Damage done already
Any idea how much the European Commission budget is for this nonsense hype???
Its all in the game…definitely not for the future of the children
Such shame!!!

Important for these religious school students to place equal emphasis on science education and digital competency to safeguard their future earning capacity.
