Cheers and Joy at WOU Beach Party

STAFF GATHER AT THE START OF THE EVENT.

Delicious food, good exercise, a fun game and pleasant company complemented by the nice cool weather and entertaining music added to the enjoyment of 141 staff who turned up for the second Beach Party of WOU this year.

FUN GAME AT THE BEACH PARTY.

The event held today at the alfresco area of the main campus and fronting the sea was in line with the ‘Year of Staff Engagement 2018’ to promote interaction among the different departments and hierarchy. Staff members were divided at random into four different coloured groups upon registration.

Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Zoraini Wati Abas welcomed the crowd which included Chief Operating Officer Yeong Sik Kheong, Registrar Dr Andy Liew Teik Kooi, consultant Wong Hun Heng and the Deans of the four Schools.

The evening kicked off with an aerobics routine led by Penang Regional Centre (PGRC) marketing and admission officer Robin Cheah Kai Yang. Many came all ready to do serious exercise, garbed in sports outfit and comfortable footwear, while others gamely participated in their office attire.

Next was the ‘Kungfu Ball’, a game that required members of the four competing teams to race while gripping a table tennis ball in between two wooden chop sticks. Most participants walked cautiously with the other hand cupped underneath the ball, but there were a few brave staff seen walking nonchalantly with speed or running while their free hand rested by their side.

 

EASY GOING FOR THESE TWO STAFF.

Prof Zoraini presented the champion green team with Oats crackers, and wafer packets to the second placed yellow team.

The participants delightfully quenched their thirst with coconut water thanks to harvesting of the University’s own coconuts courtesy of the General Services & Administration Department.

Staff mingled as they feasted on grilled corn on the cob, rojak, apam balik and chapatti which they washed down with coconut water and soya drinks.

There was also chicken burger and drinks courtesy of McDonald’s Malaysia Community Month (October) under the McDonald’s and RMHC (Ronald McDonald’s House Charities) programme.

QUEUING UP FOR SOYA DRINKS.

The event organising committee, led by Human Resources and comprising representatives from each department under Operations and Academic/Academic Support, did a splendid job particularly in the spread of food laid out as well as the activities
