In order to enable High School Division (HSD) members to further deepen appreciation towards their parents and family members, the KL HSD held appreciation days in December 2017 and January this year. HSD members and their parents were invited to these gatherings.
Various activities were organised to enable the participants to have a joyous and meaningful experience, such as games, small group discussions, experience sharing and music performances. HSD members in Form 5 shared their dreams for the future, and a welcoming ceremony was held for Primary 6 students who would be entering secondary school.
On December 17, Kuala Lumpur Region 5 held their gathering at the SGM Culture Centre. Participants discussed their dreams and visions for the future and the importance of strengthening faith and the mentor-disciple bond throughout their lives. SGM HSD Young Women’s Leader Anna Kang performed a song My Future is Not a Dream as a means to encourage the HSD members present to boldly advance along the path of mission. Region Leader Tan Chee Wah was also on-hand to encourage the participants.
