Malaysia GVC Team on World Walking Day

GVC Team Malaysia participated in the World Walking Day on 28 October, 2012.This event was organized by Nestle Malaysia in conjunction with their 100 year anniversary celebration globally.With a record high of more than 4,000 participants, this event was definitely a success. As for SMJK Poi Lam Team Malaysia, World Walking Day was a very good way to help promote walking as a healthy form of exercise to help prevent or overcome obesity.And this in turn aptly fits in with the theme of our Global Virtual Classroom (GVC) ‘Teenage Health’ Website Design Project.Our participation in Nestle’s World Walking Day was published in two local Chinese dailies wherebyiEARN Global Virtual Classroom and our two project partner schools i.e. Menchville High School, USA and La Salle, Almeria, Spain werementioned and given much publicity.
