Year 2016

  • Developing Kg. Monggis, Ranau Library and Encouraging Reading

  • POIC Sports & Recreation Club did a continuation program at Kampung Monggis, Ranau on 23rd July, 2016 together with the KK LIONS Club.

    POIC had the opportunity to share on the importance of keeping the library in order by having a proper system to record books coming in and books that are being borrowed. The Lions Community Learning Centre (library) donated various types of new books and magazines.

    The session continued with children storytelling. The purpose was to encourage them to read and appreciate books as a source of knowledge. We are planning for a storytelling competition in the next round.

    A wonderful and fruitful session indeed.

  • POIC Sports & Recreation Club Joins LIONS Club Kota Kinabalu

  • On 22nd May, 2016, POIC Sports & Recreation Club joined the Kota Kinabalu LIONS Club in their program to hand over the LIONS COMMUNICTY LEARNING CENTRE (LCLC), launch Kg Monggis, Ranau as an adopted village themed "KAMPUNG MONGGIS, KAMPUNG KITA" and presentation of gifts to the children under the program C4C - Coins for Children.

    The objective of POIC participation is for enrichment and understanding of volunteerism.

    The program started at 10.00am with the gathering of children to sing songs and dance the traditional dance, Sumazau. Thereafter, the POIC team coordinated a colouring competition for children aged 5 to 11 years. We wanted the competition to be more meaningful where we taught them about colouring and what they were colouring (some of the objects and animals were foreign to them). It was such a fun process because most of them were not shy and entertaining to communicate with. It was also a process to get to know their background especially education.

    Everyone completed their colouring before 1 hour and they immediately rushed to their mini book shelves. We had the opportunity to read to them. They are still lacking in books suitable for their age but we hope to help and fill up their shelves soon. As all kids love, they love to play outdoors.
