Tadika and Taska Kinderland held its 29th Graduation Concert recently at its premises in Jalan Woodward, Ipoh. The theme was, “Let the Good Times Roll”. Over 140 children took part dancing, singing and delivering speeches in Bahasa Malaysia, English and Mandarin on stage.
Executive Director of Crestar Education (M) Sdn Bhd and franchisor of Kinderland, Arthur Ng, graced the occasion along with some 700 guests, mostly parents and well-wishers.
The concert was an impressive affair, especially the keyboard ensemble and handbell presentation by the K1 and K2 students. They were greeted with loud applause and a standing ovation. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of cash awards to former Kinderland students who scored straight As in last year’s UPSR examination.
Principal Angela Toh, told Ipoh Echo that the objective of the concert was to encourage children to shed their shyness and instil in them self-confidence. “Activities like these could better develop a child’s mental capacity rather than just concentrating on classroom lessons,” she reasoned.
