The Principal, parents, teachers and fellow students. Good morning and welcome
to SMK Asia Jaya's Open Day. I am Sandy Siew, President of the Interact Club. I
am honoured and happy to speak to you about the benefits of the Interact Club.
As you know the Interact Club was formed to support the international
aspirations of Rotary International, a well-known establishment that has carried
out various social programs to promote better understanding among people.
Rotary's programs for students and youth can change the lives of those who
participate. Through these programs, young people can earn scholarships, travel
on cultural exchange, or help a community through a service project.
Firstly, you should join the Interact Club because it promotes understanding
among people of diverse backgrounds,
cultures and religions. This is vital in a plural society like Malaysia. Then,
there is social responsibility. Our club visits orphanages, homes for the aged,
and conducts other activities such as clean-ups in public areas. This is to
inculcate a love for our environment which is being threatened by the ignorance
and selfishness of the majority.
As I mentioned in my introduction, the Interact Club promotes sharing and
caring through networking. The captains of industry, businessmen and women,
professionals and other working adults from the Rotary community provide a
strong network that spans the globe in supporting young people with activities
that promote sharing knowledge, culture and opportunities.
In conclusion, I feel that the Interact Club is a beneficial club to join
with many advantages. So on a parting note,
I bid you welcome. Thank you.
