Kulim – SilTerra Malaysia Sdn Bhd is sponsoring 4,100
copies of the New Straits Times for SMK Taman Hi-Tech Kulim
here under the Newspaper-in-Education (NIE) programme.
Its senior manager for corporate development and external
affairs Tahiruddin Hamdan presented copies of the NST to the
school’s senior assistant Lau Chun Kwong yesterday.
Under the sponsorship programme, the school will receive 20
copies of the NST daily for the next 205 school days.
Tahiruddin said SilTerra was happy to participate in the
sponsorship programme as a form of community service.
"I hope the students will benefit from it. Reading the
NST will help the students enhance their proficiency in the
English language," he said.
SilTerra is the first company in the Kulim Hi-Tech Park to
take part in the NIE programme.
Lau believed the students would read the NST daily to improve
their vocabulary, adding that the newspapers would be provided
to the PMR and SPM students.
He said the habit of reading newspapers would help them keep
abreast of happenings around them.
Teachers Azlina Abdul Rahman and Rofitah Ahmad, who attended
the NIE training programme recently, will guide the students
in the use of the newspaper.
Also present were SilTerra human resources manager Nor Asmahan
Othman, the school’s co-curriculum senior assistant Rohaimi
Ismail, NST senior circulation executive Wan Zarifah Wan
Ibrahim and NIE sales executive R. Ganapreeta.
