Kuala Lumpur, 23 September 2003 - The Sedaya Family Day at Sekolah Sri Sedaya in Subang Jaya last Saturday (Sept 20) attracted over 1,200 people from as far as Cheras and Shah Alam.

Jointly-organised by UCSI (University College Sedaya International) and Sekolah Sri Sedaya, as part of its family day and community outreach, the fun-filled carnival was packed with telematches for adults and children.

In the words of UCSI’s computer services executive, Chew Chiun Yee said it was a great day for everyone. “We learn to let our hairs down by enjoying ourselves to the fullest with the different inflatable games. It was fun, and we hope we will have such an event every year.”

A mother, whose son is studying at Sri Sedaya, said she believes in coming to Family Days like this. “It is a good opportunity for us to interact with parents of our children’s friends,” she said. “As parents, this gives us the opportunity to interact with our children’s teachers as well in a carnival mood.”

According to the UCSI’s Vice-President of Corporate Affairs, Chin Peng Kit, the event was organised for both staff, their children, as well as parents of Sekolah Sri Sedaya primary and secondary students.

“We want to promote the spirit of unity within the Sedaya family, as well as build bridges with our community,” he said.

The event was also a joyous occasion for staff of UCSI, which just obtained its University College status the afternoon before.

Members of the Green Tea musical cast were also seen trying to promote their musical to be staged at Auditorium DBKL on October 9-11.
