Unimas celebrates National Day virtually

Date:

KOTA SAMARAHAN: The Covid-19 pandemic may have put a damper on major events, but it failed to  discourage Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) from celebrating the 64th National Day virtually.

In addition, the university also managed to successfully hold its Merdeka Virtual Challenge 2021 programme.

According to the university in a statement, 35 Unimas staff comprising management and academics showed their respective talents during the programme held this morning.

Held for the first time, the programme also saw the involvement of international students who wished Malaysians ‘Happy National Day’ through speeches, verses, poems, songs and others.

The programme which lasted for more than five hours began with the singing of the national anthem, Negaraku.

Dr Mohamad Kadim presents his poetry and poems during the university’s National Day celebration programme which was held virtually via Zoom.

It was followed by presentation of poetry and poems by Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suadi, Unimas assistant vice-chancellor (Development and Leadership) Datuk Mohd Fadzil Abdul Rahman as well as other  deputy vice-chancellors namely, Prof Dr Wan Hashim Wan Ibrahim, Prof Dr Ahmad Hata Rasit and Prof Dr Thomas Kana @ Kamarudin Kana.

The programme continued with a presentation from the Culture and Arts Unit staff.

Unimas hoped that through such a programme, it would increase the spirit of defending patriotism not only for the sake of national sovereignty but also to increase cooperation in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
