23 June 2012 is the day school children can leavetheir school work on the sidelines and play together under Dare to Dream 2 (D2D2). Prior to the successof this programme last year, D2D2 had invitedchildren from 4 schools namely SK Kati, SK Menora,SK Rambai 7 and SK Padang Asam to UTP. The programme aims to give joy to the students and alsoto drive them to have high aspirations and to motivatethem to be successful.The event started with a motivating speech by EnShukri bin Md. Ani, an education officer who cameall the way from Kuala Kangsar. He advised studentsto work hard to achieve their ambition and have fun atthe same time. This was followed by a welcomingspeech from Dr.
 
Mohamad Naufal
 
Bin MohamadSaad, advisor of E3SS ( Electrical ElectronicEngineering Student Society ) and a motivationspeaker, En Sufi, who had just finished his internshipin Paris. En Sufi encouraged students to work hard for their goal, like just how he had worked his way toParis to fulfill his childhood dream of experiencingthe beauty of Eiffel Tower.
 
Games were in store for the students after the speech.First, students were tested on teamwork to build afoothold of bridge from newspapers. They have to balance and fumble their way to the finish point andwe saw some teams were plagued by the challengewhile others treated it as a piece of cake. In thecharade games, students were asked to convey thecontent through images without verbal assistance.
 
In the afternoon, students explored the proximity of the academic block under Amazing Race D2D2.Students assisted by facilitators needed to solvedifferent intricate puzzles in each station to collect points. It was very competitive at the beginning wheneach group tried to outdo each other in the race. Nevertheless, when everyone played together, it wasmore fun.
 
The event ended at late noon with prize a givingand closing ceremony. Students were delighted withD2D2 and vowed to come back next year for morefun. Definitely, we would welcome them next year with a more exciting Dare to Dream.By Aaron Chia Yun Zhen, PG Yr. 2Sem. 1
