Editor's note

Greetings and a warm hello to all our readers.

The holy month of Ramadan for Muslims began on 15th October. It is a time of fast and prayer, to strengthen family and community ties, a time to reflect on our past and contemplate on our future. A time to give thanks for the simple things in life, good health, happiness and prosperity. A time to share, care and give selflessly. Values that are central in our busy daily lives.

In line with this blessed month, OUM was pleased to play host to a group of 80 orphans from the orang asli community in a simple yet meaningful breaking of fast activity in Masjid Wilayah. Gifts in cash and kind were also distributed to the orphans. We would like to thank Jaya Jusco Stores Bhd for their kind support and contribution.

As the month draws to a close very soon and we are set on celebrating Hari Raya, we should remember the poor and the less fortunate. Our shared values of caring, dedication, innovativeness, integrity and professionalism should be held close to our hearts as we continue to give our best to our students, our friends and of course to OUM.

Selamat Berpuasa, Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin.

Happy Reading
