After the restrictive pandemic measures, finally, we are able to organise department activities physically. Our last family day was held in 2020. For this year, the SPM department held its annual family day on Saturday, 25th June 2022 at the Astaka Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur. It was organised by the postgraduate students and department staff.
Registration opened around 8.30 am, followed by a free-flow breakfast. The event started at 9.00 am with aerobics led by students, then later was officiated by the Head of Department, Professor Dr Victor Hoe. He said the weather this morning is indeed great for outdoor activities despite heavy rain and thunderstorm in the morning on previous days.
The family day was filled with fun activities including adult and children’s tele-match, and there were lots of gifts to be won from these activities. There was also a lucky draw session for the participants. All students, staff and family members enjoyed themselves. The aim of having all students, staff and family members get together was achieved. Lunch was provided by the end of the event.
By the end of the event, all students and staff gathered together to give a special token of appreciation and warm farewell to Dr Mahmoud Danaee who is going to leave the department at the end of the month.
It was indeed a fun-filled day for all to get to know each other better, the family day was adjourned around 12.15 pm.
On to the next year!
