Fun traditional games at mini festival

About 100 students and staff of WOU were transported to the good old pastimes of playing engaging traditional games, unlike the current obsession to online games applications, during the recent Traditional Games Mini Festival held at the main campus.

They clearly enjoyed themselves with congkak, rolling coconut into a square box drawn on the floor, knocking stack of cans down with a rubber band, and playing seven stones.

The staff and students were tasked to complete the four station games, after which they were eligible to redeem prizes of mini hampers, note pads, beverage cans, board games and seven stones through lucky draws.

A FULL-STUDENT FOCUSED ON BRINGING DOWN THE CANS AT THE MINI FESTIVAL.

 

The fun event today was organised by the full-time Students Council, under the supervision of advisor, Lecturer Christine Khoo Geok Ling from the School of Business & Administration (SBA).

The objective of the festival was to get the young students, particularly from the Gen X and Gen Y generations, to know and appreciate Malay traditional games, to help staff relive nostalgic memories, and to encourage interaction and bonding.

Among those spotted having fun at the games festival were SBA Acting Dean Prakash Arumugam and a few other academics
