In conjunction with Deepavali this year, more than 40 Maxis employees headed to SJKT Ladang Escot in Tanjung Malim, to help give the school a makeover and bring joy to the students as part of Maxis’ Deepavali Festive Charity 2018.
During the one-day event, Maxis’ volunteers, M Squad, took on different tasks, including cleaning the school’s storage areas to create space for a new classroom for Year Six students, as well as a study area for students and teachers’ meeting room. Maxis also equipped the school’s ICT room with six new PCs, WiFi broadband, a flatscreen TV and printer. The school children were later treated to a sumptuous lunch as well as goodies.
As education has always been at the heart of Maxis’ community efforts, M Squad volunteers also conducted a Google ‘Be Internet Awesome’ Workshop for the students and teachers. The training session taught the importance of security and passwords, responding to cyberbullying, and trustable information, which is relevant to today’s society, especially the youth.
