DISTED College held its Annual Staff Dinner on 26th November, at the Hotel Royal Penang in appreciation of the hard work and commitment of its staff throughout the year.
Colleagues and teammates took the opportunity to walk down memory lane, dressing up in their best 70’s retro style outfit to the likes of ABBA, Queens and The Bee Gees.
Distinguished guest and director Tan Sri Dr Chin Fook Weng delivered his goodwill message and said that DISTED College functions as a not-for-profit, self-financing college in which the net earnings are retained in the business for the benefit of both staffs and students.
Tan Sri Dr Chin also expressed his appreciation towards the committee for the dedication and effort they had put forth in this year’s annual dinner.
Next was Dr Seah’s enigmatic speech and it was indeed a heartfelt and profound one. “Employees are the assets and pillars that make DISTED the pioneer 6-star rating education provider in the region,” Dr Seah Soo Aun, President and CEO of DISTED College said during his opening remark. In addition, Dr Seah mentioned that the year 2016 had been a challenging but fruitful year and staff will be awarded a year-end bonus in appreciation for a collective job well done.
With no exceptions, the Long-Years’ service award were presented to Mr Lee Kor Yong and Mr Khor Ee Keat for their 20 and 10 years of outstanding service and dedication to DISTED College respectively.
Certificates of appreciation were also presented to staffs for their significant contribution and achievement in guiding Chung Ling High School in the 2016 Young Enterprise Programme champion by AMCHAM (American Malaysia Chamber of Commerce Malaysia).
Members and Committees of DISTED College’s clubs and societies were also presented with certificates of appreciation for their annual outstanding performances.
Other event highlights included talent performances, table games and lucky draws in which Dr Gwee Sai Ling emerged the luckiest one of the night who walked away with the Grand Prize, a Samsung LED TV.
Last but not least, Dr Tan Fuyi and Ms Diana Quah were crowned Mr & Ms Retro DISTED 2016 through the likes of their amazing catwalk, charming personality and most retro outfit. It was indeed a great memorable night for all and a splendid way to end 2016 with a bang!
