We have brainstormed for ideas on how the students could express themselves about Merdeka. We would like them to convey their feelings, appreciate and understand how hard it was to fight for independence. Accordingly, a series of Merdeka related competition will go on from 31st of July 2019 until 31st of August 2019. Among the objectives of the competitions are to impart a sense of pride and patriotism among Malaysian Youth, as well as an awareness and appreciation for the country’s history and national development. Students can participate in any of the contests and stand a chance to win exciting prizes!
The first stage of Merdeka Trivia event is the poetry contest which will take place from the 31st of July until 6th of August 2019.

Continuing with the spirit of independence, MASAF is giving students the opportunity to unleash their imagination with an art contest focusing on the theme “Gems of Malaysia”.
