Service to the community


This local school services the children in the Penyabong area, whom are commonly from poorer backgrounds. Students spend half a day here bonding with the school children and increasing their quality of life through action-based community service. Additionally, fundraising can occur during the academic year and the money collected can be used to buy supplies or presents to be awarded to Sekolah Kebangsaan Tanjung Resang upon your visit.

Action-based service: Students will split into groups and work on refurbishing facilities located on site. This can include reorganising the library, adding a fresh coat of paint onto walls or decorating the classrooms with murals and posters.

Social service: To foster caring and bonding with the local community, students and local school children are paired up and take part in supervised fun games around the school. This allows the school children to better interact with outsiders, increases their confidence and betters their command of English.

Service to the community

ECOBRICKS @ Teluk Sari Environmental Education Centre

Plastic waste collected during the coastal clean up activity on Day 1 can be compressed and repurposed into ecobricks. These bricks serve as building blocks to be made into structures such as an equipment shed, upcycling the plastic waste and removing it from our oceans. The building of a structure in this way would be time consuming, so new batches of students can return every year and continue the work of previous years. The end result would be a sturdy frame made up of tonnes of repurposed plastic pollution. A win for all!
