A charity concert named “Helping Hands” was held at Sekolah Menengah Teknik, Ipoh. It was organised by the Raja Perempuan School (RPS) Interact Club and the Pre-university Students’ Club.
The programme started with an opening speech by Edwin Siebel, the VIP of the day followed by a welcoming speech by RPS principal, Hajah Juahir Mohd Hassan. Guests were then entertained to dances and songs performed by students of Raja Perempuan School, Methodist Girls School and others.
The crowd went wild when VD2D took the stage. VD2D is a dance group consisting of talented youngsters. Their 15-minute show was greeted with screams and chants from the excited crowd. Other shows included a solo performance by a student from MGS, Apple and Jayden Magic Show, Beat Box by Michael Lu and dances by D’Artiz Studio.
A cheque and certificate presentation ceremony was the highlight of the event. Certificates of appreciation were given to all performers and to the schools involved.
Thousands of Malaysians were affected by floods that hit the nation in December last year. Donations, in all forms, were given to the victims but they were still insufficient. This altruistic effort by RPS will definitely make an impact.
