SIDMA College Sabah 3rd 2018 Staff Gathering

Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Founder and Chairman) officiated the 3rd 2018 SIDMA College Sabah Staff Gathering by conveying his sincere appreciation and thank you note to all SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah staff and staff of SIDMA subsidiary companies such as Fiona Travel and Tours Sdn Bhd, SIDMA Didi Childcare Centre, Bentleytel (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. The event was organised by staff from the Blue Team at SIDMA Atrium on 12 October 2018.

He expressed his admiration to SIDMA staff on their team spirit shown during some recent SIDMA big events such as, #SIDMAgoesLIVE - where the college launched its Digital Media Day on 6 October 2018. During the event, SIDMA College staff turned up in full force despite it being a Saturday and a Public Holiday (Sabah TYT Birthday). Dr Morni was also glad to note that during the current Kadazandusun Language Club Speech Contest held at various secondary schools and District Education Departments, staff who were also members of the club, travelled to the various schools and district education, together with him as the advisor, to co-organise and provide any required assistance during the competition.

In addition, Dr Morni took the time to emphasise on the necessity for the academic staff to be more focused on their core business, particularly on the students learning. He cited the case where more than 10 SIDMA DECE students failed to meet and complete their semester June 2018 teaching practicum with accordance to the specified timeline (dateline) due to the student’s poor attitude and commitment towards their work (practicum). Thus, he advised lecturers and academic supervisors to be more concerned on their students’ performance and provide appropriate interventions from the early stage.

SIDMA Staff Gathering is never complete without greetings and well wishes from Dr Morni and colleagues to fellow colleagues who were celebrating their birthday that season. For this round, staff whose birthday is on the month of August and September were invited to the “Birthday Cake Candle Blowing”, amidst “Happy Birthday” song sang by all the other staff members.

The gathering continued with various games whereby staffs were divided into their respective teams.  They would then be tested on their creativeness, endurance level and teamwork.

The activities consisted of 3 games, namely, “Do you have it?” whereby participants were asked to create something only with what they have. “Where is Bobo? “, another game which requires the participants’ endurance and teamwork as they have to work together to score the highest goal. “Pembaris”, the last game was more on creativity where they need to give clue to the group’s representative to guess the word. The whole event ended at about 4:00 pm where the finishing was the high tea refreshment that was served. All in all, the red team emerged as the winner with a 50 point, followed by black team, green and the yellow team. There were heartache and disappointment, but with the team spirit, everyone leave with a happy hand and mind knowing that SIDMA Family is a true happy family from all backgrounds.
