In the early morning of 19th January 2018, Enactus UUM members marched towards Sintok PLKN Camp site for a Team Building session. Upon arriving at 8:30am, we had a warm up session to loosen up and stretch our joints. The coordinators for this jungle trekking activity comprised of six army sergeants who volunteer at the PLKN site. Following a short briefing from the sergeants, we then proceeded with our jungle trekking adventure at 9.30am.
The journey through Hutan Sintok was fun but arduous. We came across lots of blood thirsty leeches and other small insects. However, the most frightening part was climbing up the steep slopes as the path was often slippery and filled with mud. We had to help each other throughout the journey and stick closely to our groups to ensure our safety. It took us almost four hours to complete the journey and by the time we were done, it was already 1:30pm.
Thank you for those who joined our Team Building activity. During this time, we’ve truly cared and loved one another. It was a great experience as we’ve all worked together as a family.
Acceleration week has ended successfully for VE Project (15 – 18 January 2018). Shout out to all VE members who’ve worked tirelessly in making this journey fruitful and worthwhile.
On the first day of Acceleration Week, VE members have been busy preparing handmade bookmarks to be sold to raise funds for the project.
On day 2, VE members were separated into three teams and were assigned to sell the handmade bookmarks to the people in Kedah. Team 1 was to sell in Changlun, Team 2 in Jitra, while Team 3 sold their bookmarks to lecturers in UUM. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, the three teams managed to sell all the bookmarks and collected more than RM1000 in revenue. All proceeds will be used wisely to expand the project.
In addition, VE members from Team 3 have also paid a visit to SMK Changlun and SMK Bandar Baru Sintok to brief the headmaster regarding VE Project. Following the fruitful discussion, both schools have agreed to implement VE Project modules as extracurricular activities. VE members will execute the project in both schools starting 23rd February 2018.
On day three, VE members had discussions regarding Module 3 and have finalized the products to be sold during the execution of the module. The members have discussed and finalized on the first two modules previously before Acceleration Week.
On the last day of Acceleration Week, VE members were separated into two teams, facilitator team and management team. This is to ensure smooth running of events during the execution of all modules next semester.
