Nearly 100 children attended a private screening of Disney’s “Jungle Book” movie on Saturday, 16 April, followed by lunch, in a “Movie Day” event that was organised and sponsored by the Soroptimist International Club of Penang (“SIP”), a service-oriented, non-profit organisation for women.

The 97 boys and girls between the ages of 4-15 and their ten minders were from four children’s welfare homes in Penang and Kedah. They arrived early at Gurney Plaza’s Golden Screen Cinemas in excited anticipation of the 10.30am movie, a live-action adaptation of the Disney classic, which was based on Rudyard Kipling’s stories. 

The four participating homes are:

·            Batu Grace Children’s Home, Kulim  - 48 children, 2 minders

·            Crystal Family Home, Air Itam - 15 children, 3 minders

·            Children Protection Society, Jalan Scotland - 13 children, 2 minders

·            Agape Shalom Children’s Welfare Home, Kulim - 21 children, 3 minders

After the movie, the children were taken to a private buffet lunch sponsored by Three Sixty Revolving Restaurant under Mr Yeoh Kah Hock, at City Bayview Hotel. The restaurant, which normally operates in the evening, had specially catered to the event with a delicious array of Peranakan curries, fried noodles, fried chicken, french fries,  samosas, curry puffs, bread and butter pudding and ice-cream. The children had the opportunity to indulge themselves in bowls of ice-cream and also to enjoy the stunning rooftop view of this UNESCO World Heritage City.

The children were each given goodie bags when they left at 2.30pm. The movie outing and goodie bags were fully sponsored by SIP members.

The ACE Programme with the view for SIP to work on the programme over the next two years. It was launched on Earth Day -22nd April. Briefly, the objectives of ACE Programme are:

1) To increase awareness among school children on the importance of maintaining a clean and healthy environment

2) To provide the necessary support to the community, to recycle their garbage.

There are two parts to the project: One part is to increase awareness and good environmental practices among school children. The other part is to enhance the recycling habits of the community.

Both parts will require good advocacy and communication efforts, to be successful. SIP is working on the first part of the project in 2015.

SIP selected three schools for a series of environmental awareness projects. 

Three Drawing Contests with the theme, "Green Environment, Healthy Family" were held at the 3 schools with 30 contestants from each school taking part. SIP provided drawing papers, prizes and snack/lunch for the contestants. The best of 10 paintings were selected from each school. The first three received cash prizes of First prize- RM150, Second prize – RM100, Third prize –RM50.



The best paintings from these 30 would be used for a calendar (2016), greeting cards or other corporate sponsored uses. The club is working on this separately by writing to corporates.
