It is heartening to know that Sports Toto had in June 2013 embarked on the “Reading My Companion” learning program at 5 mirco-sized Chinese primary schools in the rural areas of Selangor. This learning program hopes to inculcate reading as a pastime among these rural students.
The 5 participating schools are SJK(C) Cheong Hua in Sabak Bernam, SJK(C) Choong Chee in Ulu Yam Lama, SJK (C) Kerling in Kerling, SJK(C) Liat Choon in Jeram and SJK(C) Simpang Morib in Banting. About 720 students from these schools each received a beautiful story book which are delivered by Sports Toto’s CSR team to their respective schools.
Apart from delivery of these story book, a story telling session too took place in each of these school to get the students interested and excited about reading. The schools will too encourage books exchange and sharing among the student as well as encourage the students to share their thoughts in class.
This “Reading My Campaion” is the second organised by Sports Toto and has so far benefited 12 schools and 1,500 students.
