SEGi University has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SJKT Rubber Research Institute (RRI) Sungai Buloh.

The MoU details a collaborative plan with SJKT RRI Sungai Buloh to enable SEGi University’s Faculty of Education students to carry out practical training.

This includes to assist the school to improve its environment, conduct motivational talks as well as to regularly send tutors to teach the pupils English.

SEGi University acting vice-chancellor and deputy vice-chancellor (Academic) Prof Dr Patrick Kee said: “We hope this collaboration will help the school in its continuing efforts to improve the overall standards and performance, particularly English so as to enable its pupils to transition smoothly to secondary schools.”

“In turn, we hope that our SEGi trainee teachers will develop improved teaching and learning materials and methodology for use by teachers in the future. We hope everyone benefits from this collaboration,” he added.

Prior to the signing of the MoU, SEGi students have already been contributing to this primary school.

A newly-painted mural outside the washrooms which was recently completed by SEGi students, demonstrates how pupils should wash their hands. It is also on their rights as children as enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. There was also an English tutoring project that lasted for several weeks.

The MoU was signed by Prof Kee and school headmistress Sarasvathy Sangalrayan.
