The two-day programme was officiated by the principal of MRSM YT Ketengah, Puan Junidah Binti Salleh and led by Puan Hajjah Azlinda Binti Zainal Abidin, the Head of CMLHS Consultancy and Training Unit. The rest of the team from UMP included Puan Suhardiliana Binti Sahar, Mr Shamsul Bin Harbi and Miss Nursyaheedah Binti Muhammad Isa alongside 15 UMP student facilitators. 133 Form Four MRSM YT Ketengah students had fun participating in the assortment of fun activities which included Confidence Building, Explorace, Flipped Learning, Doodle, and Corousel Presentation. Gigvaganza Phase 1 aimed to equip students of MRSM YT Ketengah with communication skills in English which will enable them to apply in both formal and informal situations. Puan Wan Idayani Binti Wan Mohd Idris, a senior English teacher of MRSM YT Ketengah said that “the programme helps students to consolidate their knowledge especially in grammar. It will definitely improve their competency by doing revision of the grammar rules, as well as learning to use the language correctly and suitably in any given situation”. She further added that “Doodle, which is a relatively new teaching technique, can be used in the classroom for all subjects. It can assist students to be more creative through exploring their creative side. Two thumbs up!” The programme ended with a high note and the participants seemed eager and excited for Phase 2 of Gigvanganza this coming December.
