Project Name : Education Aid for Sixth Form Students
Project Description :
We choose Form Six students who have done well in the public examinations and are from deserving families. Students who have been offered places to do Sixth Form and whose families are financially challenged will be given monthly financial aid of RM300 to help them pay for their tuition fees and
also to buy reference books needed to help them with their studies. To ensure that the funds given to these students are used properly, regular updates of their results are required. With these checks and balances, we are able to help and ensure that they will achieve their dreams.
1. Objective of the Signature Project
Financial aids are normally available for students who are accepted into colleges or universities. However, this is not readily available to those who want to continue with their studies in the Sixth Form. We have many appeals from this group of students so our club has then decided to contribute RM300 monthly to these deserving high achievers to help them realise their goals free from financial worries.

9. Critical success factor
Funds needed to keep this Education Aid running will be source through various fund raising projects such as organising walkathons, food fairs as well as charity nights dinners .
We have started an ‘Adopting a Student Program’ whereby FOLs are willing to sponsor students throughout their their Form Six years of studies.
The first batch of 7 students (2014-2015) whom we have given financial aid to, have excelled in their examination and are now pursuing their studies in various universities in Malaysia.
The second batch of 6 students (2015-2016) are now in Upper Six. They will be sitting for their public examination soon. (November-December 2016)
The boy, Gan Boon Keong, recommended by his headmaster, is now studying in Lower Six.
