According to Berita Harian, the preschool students entered the Malaysian Book of Records (MBOR) for the longest Jalur Gemilang. About 2128 egg trays were utilized to perfect this astounding masterpiece.

All in all, it was a joint effort. The students’ families contributed the egg trays while the management provided the necessary coloring materials. “It has been a regular tradition for our school to host Merdeka Day celebrations since the past five years,” the kindergarten headmaster, R Mohanambal explained.

The students’ dedication and hard work has certainly paid off, earning them a spot in the MBOR. “I am impressed by the determination of the students, parents and teachers who were involved in the project,” he said at the school’s Merdeka celebration yesterday.

Also present were Lee Pooi Leng, the MBOR officer manager and Kemelah State Assembly Member (Assembly), N Saraswati. As the awarding of certification took place, Saraswati mentioned that such activities are capable of instilling virtues like love for country, discipline and cooperation. “Even though they are only three to six years old, their enthusiasm to celebrate Independence Day is extraordinary,” Saraswati said.

Definitely a huge milestone for these preschool children. Let’s hope there’s more to come from them!
