Assalamualaikumwarahmatullahiwabarakatuh, good morning/afternoon…Our Honorable guests, dear parents, teachers and our young leaders…
(Please allow me to sing a short phrase of a song)
Congratulations and celebrations!
To all of our young leaders today!
Congratulations and jubilations!
To all of our young leaders today!
Congratulations Young Leaders!
I would like to first introduce myself. Some of you may have seen me but I guess most of you have not. I’m Narges Zeynab. (Video slideshow) This was me 18-20 years ago… wearing the same T-shirt that your children may be wearing when they’re in CIC.. Yes, I was once in CIC too! Yes, I was once a young leader too. I have spend half of my life in CIC.
Some of my teachers are still here dedicating their life in developing our Young Leaders. Shout out to TEACHER NAZIATI! TEACHER ZANA! TEACHER ROHAIDA! TEACHER SALISA! TEACHER ZIRA! TEACHER MARINA , TEACHER SUZI and TEACHER SOFI! (Please give them a round of applause!)
Through their dedication, Alhamdulillah, after I left CIC as a graduate, I continue to strive. I was a bright student in primary school, I strived in my elementary school, I was always at the top of my class, and recently I have also graduated with a first class honour degree in Management with Economics from Goldsmiths University of London. And I believe I’m only one of many other graduates of CIC who are striving out there, InsyaAllah. It’s thanks to them, I have a strong foundation in life. Synonym with the name of CIC, Childhood is indeed Crucial.
This year, our teachers and Young Leaders have demonstrated great dedication and perseverance. The teachers worked really hard to ensure every child enjoyed their time in CIC while focusing on the quality of learning. I am proud to see our Young Leader’s overwhelming participation in many activities including CIC’s Pocket, Merdeka roadshow, educational trips and many other thematic based activities. Congratulations again to all teachers and Young Leaders! All of your hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed, and it brings me great happiness to see you all achieve such success. I hope our young leaders today will continue their excellence in every future step of their life, InsyaAllah!
Ladies and gentlemen,
I would like to take this opportunity to address some matter that has recently been viral on the internet. That is, regarding the claim of a parent that their child was bullied by another child in CIC. Alhamdulillah, after a thorough internal investigation with all the witnesses involved, together with the police, we came to a consensus that it is not a case of bullying.
CIC strictly stands against the action of bullying and CIC has clear rules against bullying. Our teachers are given training on prevention and intervention for any bullying cases that may occur at any of CIC centres. We need you to trust our teachers. I understand every parent here only wants the best for their child. We do too! We want the best for all young leaders in CIC! Our young leaders in CIC come from many backgrounds. It is during their time in CIC, they learn to develop their language, social interactions and emotional development. CIC is the place where this small community meets. Thus, it is our responsibility to make sure that every child in CIC gets the guidance they need to become great people and every action taken by us is very crucial in the life of the children.
Next year, we will remain committed to our current campaigns. We want to be known as a place that puts emphasis on ‘CIC’, that is Childhood Is Crucial. We want to be a place where children can be ‘CIC’, that is a Cheerful Innovative Classroom. Please look forward to many more exciting and innovative activities from our teachers and Young Leaders that correspond to our campaigns: Childhood Is Crucial & Cheerful Innovative Classroom. It is our promise to serve our prestigious customers with increased dedication in years to come.
Thank you so much and congratulations again for all Young Leaders who have graduated with CIC Where Leaders Are Born
