PETALING JAYA, 25 September 2013 – It was an exciting day for over 5,500 students in 24 schools across Malaysia when GAB Foundation came a calling last Friday to make over their schools as part of its annual ‘Big Day Out’ Initiative.
Now in its fourth year, GAB Foundation organised for 24 teams, comprising of employees and business partners, to ‘make over’ classrooms and schools over the course of a day.
Several schools received new furniture and fresh coats of paint while others received facelifts for their facilities. In some schools, ‘reading corners’ were set up and 32” LCD screens were placed in classrooms to facilitate a more interactive and engaging learning experience. Apart from repairs and upgrades, the teams also contributed reading materials, stationery supplies, uniforms, sports equipment and many more school necessities.
