GAMSIS Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2018 Celebration


SIDMA College Islamic Student Club (GAMSIS) organised a “GAMSIS Hari Raya Aidilfitri Celebration” event on 5 July 2018 at SIDMA Atrium, SIDMA College City Campus for all students and staff of the college. The event was held with the main purpose of getting the students to convey their “Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin” message to all staff of the college, as well as to foster good relationships through the Hari Raya “Open House” concept; thus, building good relations among the existing students and the new ones, especially new students from the June 2018 new intake. It also provide an opportunity for staff and students of the college to mingle together in harmony without much protocol.

Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (SIDMA Chairman and Founder of the College) in his officiating address, congratulated Mr Mohd Faridzwan Bin Abdul Salleh as the GAMSIS Chairman and his committee members, for the initiative to organise the gathering despite having limited time, as they just came back from their semester holiday, and also being handicapped by having small committee as most of the committee members are currently undergoing their internship training.

He also thanked the management of Restoran Sari Bonda, a restaurant located at Bundusan Commercial Square Centre 2, Penampang, as well as staff and lecturers of the college who have contributed to ensure the successful implementation of the event. It’s through the spirit of co-operation, collaboration and understanding from all the communities and partnership of the staff and communities that strengthened the SIDMA College miniature of a multicultural and multiracial democratic society whereby everyone can live, study, play, work and share the spirit of living together in harmony.

Dr Morni also took the opportunity to announce that SIDMA College Sabah has entered a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS), a very dynamic private Islamic university in Malaysia  to offer Islamic diploma studies programmes, beginning this coming Semester October 2018 intake of new students.
