21 October 2022 -Being A Conscious Traveller

“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth” - Baha’i Writings

We celebrate International Day today, and it was a great display of unity between parents, teachers and our brilliant learners. The theme for this year is ‘The Conscious Traveller’ which we linked to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and also coinciding aptly with this week’s RECIPE plus, Global Citizens.

Education on global citizenship from an early age is most beneficial; the United Nations states “the primary aim of Global Citizenship Education (GCED) is nurturing respect for all, building a sense of belonging to a common humanity and helping learners become responsible and active global citizens…aiming to empower learners to assume active roles to face and resolve global challenges and to become proactive contributors to a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world.”

A common goal for us at TIS Puchong is to instil shared global values which shape our learners to become active participants in an ever-changing world - hence raising them ready. We adhere to a philosophy of education that touches upon reconstructionism - social reconstructionism is a contemporary philosophy that emphasises on the addressing of social issues and social reforms. Students exercise the agency to create a better society for all and an improvement in worldwide democracy.

The Multi Purpose Hall was transformed into an amazing space with a plethora of activities for all to experience. There were different booths which focussed on energy conservation, the environment, heritage and culture, language, and of course, Malaysia’s most favourite topic of conversation, food! Parents had a delicious spread of food for sale including Nasi Lemak, a Malaysian must, Korean chicken and Chinese dumplings.

I am extremely proud to work with our group of active class parents who led this year’s International Day initiative with such passion and excitement, so thank you to all who worked tirelessly with our teachers and learners. With the ‘Conscious Traveller’ theme, this year’s booths showcased sustainable world environments - recycling, planting trees and the toxicity of plastics. Learners also looked into energy saving inventions and initiatives across the world, and also sustainable food like tempe, kimchi and pickles and ways of eliminating food wastage. It was fun trying out some Aboriginal stone art and also making Korean fans, while the architectural booth gave students the opportunity to look at global iconic structures like the Stonehenge.

The GL assessments have now commenced and our students have shown such focus and excellence, revising and recalling their knowledge, skills and understanding. This week too, we had radio personalities from local station Hitz FM to sample our canteen food. There was an amazing display of Rangoli art work in celebration of Deepavali and our primary students enjoyed the variety of food prepared on the day. It will be a lovely long Deepavali weekend and we at TIS Puchong will reconvene next Wednesday. I look forward to seeing you at Friday’s Deepavali Assembly. Till then, I would like to wish you a most wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
