Malakoff Holds Its Annual Motivational Camp for Its Seven Adopted Schools in Mukim Serkat

7 December 2023

As part of Malakoff Corporation Berhad (“Malakoff”)’s continuous engagement with the local communities, a fun-filled and educational 3-day motivational camp was held from 7 to 9 December 2023 at D’Bemban Camp and Eco Resort in Kulai, Johor. Attended by 140 students and 14 dedicated teachers from Malakoff’s seven adopted primary schools in Mukim Serkat, Pontian, the programme was aimed at fostering a love for nature, instilling academic awareness and responsibility, and forging stronger bonds among students and teachers.

The participating schools were SK Seri Sinaran Chokoh, SK Andek Mori, SK Permas Kelapa, SK Serkat, SK Sg Durian, SJKC Pei Chiao and SK Sg Boh.

On the first day, upon gathering for a briefing and an ice-breaking session, the students were treated to a knowledge workshop where they were enlightened with the acquired skills to enhance a good teamwork. The camp then proceeded with a lesson on various tie-knots and ways to conduct a night rescue mission, which serves as a basic life skill for participants during unprecedented emergency events. Before Day 1 wrapped up, the camp ended with a brief session on the importance of instilling self-confidence to achieve one’s ambitions and dreams.

During the camp’s second day, the participants were presented with various recreational activities that were aimed to challenge their mental and physical capabilities, starting with a warm-up exercise routine followed by a jungle survival training session, typically designed to equip the participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to survive and thrive in a rainforest environment. Additionally, they were also taught the basics of first aid kit application in case of an emergency. After a long first half of the day, came the highlight of Day 2 where participants were encouraged to showcase their artistic abilities through cultural performances during ‘Malam Kebudayaan’. Experiencing the unveiling of everyone's hidden talents was deeply moving for all involved. The genuine camaraderie that emerged was not only encouraging but also heartwarming.

As the camp came to its closing, the participants were presented with ‘Explorace’ where their quick-thinking and team cohesion skills were tested. After an invigorating two-hour race, a closing ceremony was conducted to honour and celebrate the participants' dedication and effort. The closing ceremony was attended by Ketua Pegawai Pendidikan Daerah Pontian Tuan Haji Abd Rahman Salleh, Ketua Kampung Kg Chokoh Encik Ahmad Shuib Haji Hasnuddin and Senior Manager of Malakoff’s Group Communications and Branding Encik Md Yuha Ismail. The event was further graced by the Headmasters of SK Seri Sinaran Chokoh, SK Serkat, SK Andek Mori, SK Permas Kelapa, and SK Sg Boh.

This initiative is part of Malakoff’s Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) initiatives, focusing on the Community pillar which aligns with Malakoff’s tagline, “Enhancing Life, Enriching Communities”. Besides enhancing a close working relationship with various stakeholders and the local communities, we hope that initiatives like these will further cultivate the spirit of ‘giving back to the community’ while fostering a stronger bond between one another.
