KHOO Kongsi in Penang has always been keen to support educational causes, according to its president Datuk Seri Khoo Keat Siew.
Khoo was speaking after presenting a RM5,000 mock cheque in support of a two-day SPM workshop organised by Star Media Group Bhd.
“On behalf of the kongsi, I would like to wish all the participants success in their endeavours,” he said.
Also present at the ceremony at Khoo Kongsi were its vice-president Khoo Boo Yeang and secretary Khoo Boo Hong.
Star Media Group Audience Management senior executive Eric Stanley, who received the cheque, said sponsors had made it possible to organise the workshop for the benefit of students.
“This particular donation will be used to help selected students from two schools,” he said.
He added that funds would help to cover the cost of printing material, rental of venue and meals as well as the fees for the experienced trainers conducting the workshop.
“This year, we have participants from all over Penang and quite a few coming from Alor Setar, Kedah,” he said.
Form Four and Five students are invited to join the workshop starting on Sept 21 (8am to 5.30pm) at KDU Penang in Anson Road, George Town.
Registration fee is RM150 per day. Seats are limited. Call Kam (04-6473399) or Eric Stanley (012-4281948) from 9am to 5.30pm on weekdays.
Today is the last day to sign up for the workshop.
