Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan

HMAS TOOWOOMBA personnel deployed on Indo-Pacific Endeavour 2017 conducted a visit to “Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan” – the Sitiawan Special Needs School for intellectually and physically disabled children. 23 personnel, interacted with children through arts, crafts and other activities. The ship made an incredible donation of RM 6,950 – raised from personal donations from the ship’s crew. This donation will enable the school’s van to be repaired (meaning 24 children who otherwise cannot get to school can now start going again), enable a visit to the Taiping Zoo and also purchase of items for the school’s sensory room.
