The Pre-U Club of INTI International College Subang (IICS) started the year doing just that, challenging themselves to create a Malaysian record despite their heavy study commitments. The record, endorsed by Malaysia Book of Records (MBR), saw over 200 students from the Pre-U Club collaborate and create the “Biggest Logo Painted on Cloth”, which was witnessed by staff and students, and confirmed by Ms Leona Paul, a representative of MBR.
“The formation of this logo was not just to demonstrate our appreciation to our college but instill and enhance the desire to dream big and achieve beyond expectations, as well as to truly become First Amongst Equals,” said Joshua Fernandez, Organising Chairperson of the event.
Despite external challenges including a heavy downpour, members of the Pre-U Club converged in stages to outline and paint the 29.54 metres (length) by 17.31 metres (width) logo. A total of 96 litres of white paint and 48 litres of red paint was used to form the logo which was completed over a period of one month at the open basketball court within IICS’ compound.
“The event shows a tremendous amount of commitment, dedication and teamwork among these students to achieve their goal of creating a Malaysian record. It also demonstrates strong leadership qualities by the committee members to garner support and drive their sponsorship efforts,” said Dr Anucia Jeganathan, President of IICS.
Jotun, Cleo Magazine, Foto Prime, Kamdar, Mamee, CampusPlus, Maya Explorer (M) Sdn Bhd, World Discovery Travel (M) Sdn Bhd, Gold Insignia LLP and Melorita Healthcare Recruitment Specialist were among the corporate sponsors which made the event possible.
