Pullout makes learning fun after UPSR

PETALING JAYA: With informative diagrams and fun illustrations, 6 to 1, a pullout in The Star, is an ideal alternative to textbooks for post-UPSR pupils to learn Maths and Science in English.

SP Setia group human resources general manager Capt (Rtd) Liew Siong Sing said: “I think the newspaper is one of the easiest mediums to study English as it is more interesting to read than textbooks.”

The property developer is sponsoring 200 copies each of the first two issues of 6 to 1 to 85 schools in Johor, Penang and Selangor.

Some of the poorer pupils attending these schools are participants in the Setia Adoption Programme run by the developer’s charity arm, SP Setia Foundation. The programme provides some basic educational needs like school uniforms, stationery and workbooks, for needy pupils.

Great stuff: G. Damodaran showing this year’s first issue of 6 to 1to Liew in Petaling Jaya yesterday. With them are Star-NiE coordinator Sharon Ovinis and SP Setia Foundation secretary Tang Dee Leng.

Liew presented a cheque signifying SP Setia’s sponsorship to Star Publications’ senior manager (circulation) G. Damodaram at Menara Star yesterday.

6 to 1 is a 24-page pullout specially designed to help Year Six pupils study Maths and Science in English after having learnt both subjects in Bahasa Malaysia in primary school.

Based on the Form One syllabi for Maths and Science, the pullout contains interesting activities, games, puzzles and experiments to make learning fun, and was a great hit with parents and pupils over the last two years.

Available only to schools, 6 to 1 will be published every Tuesday for eight weeks, excluding the Hari Raya holidays, with the first issue out today.

For just RM5.60, a pupil will receive all eight issues of the pullout along with the day’s copy of The Star.

For subscription and queries, call The Star’s Circulation Department (customer care unit) at 03-7967 1777 / 1388 ext 1152 / 1160 (Mondays to Fridays from 9am to 5pm).
