With carols, gifts and good company, staff of INTI College Sarawak brought early Christmas cheer to residents of the Salvation Army Children’s Home at Jalan Uplands in Kuching.

 
It was a delight to watch the children’s eyes light up at the sight of the Christmassy cake.
 

Led by Ivy Lau, Deputy Principal of the College, the visitors distributed gifts and goodies to the home’s 57 children two days before Christmas. The singing of carols and the cutting of a specially-baked cake, along with partaking of an assortment of pastries added to the festivity and joy of the occasion.

 

“The afternoon with the children was a heart-warming experience and an opportunity for us to share a special occasion with the less fortunate in society,” said Lau. “Indeed, amidst the festivities comes the realization that far brighter than the Christmas lights and decorations is the smile of a child – a smile that radiates from within, with the assurance that tomorrow will be a brighter day.”

Social responsibility is a part of the teaching and learning experience at INTI. Bringing cheer to residents of the Salvation Army Children’s Home is just one of the many social and charitable events organized by INTI. Students and staff have on many occasions come to the aid of orphans, the elderly, disaster victims and others in need, bringing friendship, comfort and hope.
