On 11 November 2019, a total of 126 students from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Infant Jesus Convent (IJC) partook in an awareness programme in Melaka. The programme was carried out by ten lecturers from the Faculty of Business (FOB) and two staff from National Marketing and Enrolment (NME).
The programme started with a talk on “Your Virtual World: Keep it Safe & Protected”, by Ms Sharmila Rani and continued by Ms Usha Vellappan. The participants acquired new knowledge of cyberbullying and ways on how to protect themselves in the virtual world. Apart from that, there were three games prepared by the FOB lecturers, namely “Cyber Bingo”, “Broken Telephone” and “Social Media Charade”, and they really enjoyed the session.
Overall, the students were exposed to the knowledge of what is cyberbullying and how much it could affect their life. Furthermore, the school management was very thankful to the teams involved, acknowledging that their students have benefited a lot from the programme.
