DISTED Hari Raya Luncheon

DISTED College hosted a Hari Raya Luncheon for all staff in conjunction with the Hari Raya Celebration.

Human Resources Department and SMART Committee took the initiative to organise and decorate the venue.

The lunch started with a welcome speech by Dr Seah, President and CEO of DISTED College. While we celebrate  Hari Raya with the same cherished spirit and values, he stressed to always keep in mind the four key pillars of DISTED.

It was undoubtedly a joyous occasion for all staff with scrumptious food and an opportunity to get together to celebrate the Hari Raya.

Effective Speaking & Presentation Skills Holiday Public Speaking Workshop

LiFE Academy is organising an Effective Speaking & Presentation Skills Workshop in conjunction with the coming school holidays. This workshop is specially designed for those in the age group of 12 to 18 years of age.

Usually parents are at wit’s end trying to keep their children occupied during the holidays. These 3-days will be very practical and allows each participant the opportunity to present speeches in different situations.

Do bear in mind that this is a public speaking workshop and not a child-minding service so we will discourage those timid and exceptionally shy and quiet from attending.

We will charge a fee of RM450 for the entire 3 days which includes tea breaks and lunch and materials.

For children of DISTED staff we will provide a special rebate.
