UEM English Literacy Programme Grand Dinner



On 13 November, teachers from 20 PINTAR schools nationwide were treated to a scrumptious dinner and great entertainment during the UEM English Literacy Programme (UELP) Grand Dinner 2015 at the Royale Bintang Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

The Grand Dinner, organised  by PINTAR  Foundation, was to show its appreciation of the teachers’ commitment, efforts and support towards the three-year programme since its inception in April 2012. Prior to the dinner, the teachers attended a get-together session with the Foundation management where they shared their experience on how the UELP has helped them achieve their teaching objectives in their schools. 

The UELP, sponsored by the UEM Group, saw active participation from 50 schools – 15,000 students and 116 teachers from the Central, Northern and Southern regions. The programme focused on strengthening the teaching and learning of the English language through capacity building / teacher development using a variety of methods – quality delivery structures; and supportive intervention and community involvement to help enhance and develop students’ reading, writing, understanding and speaking skills in English.
