The Interact Club of Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International) organized a farewell event on the 9th of September 2015 (Friday). The theme for this event was Dreamworks as it followed up the interact theme for our last physical year which was Chasing Dreams. This theme shows that the senior Interactors achieved what they work hard for and symbolises the realisation of their dreams. The event was held at Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur. A total of 85 students and 2 teacher advisors participated in this event.
This year, the organising committee was made up of five junior Interactors, led by the organizing chairperson, Int. Goh May Zhi, assisted by the assistant organizing chairperson, Int. Lauren Lim, as well as the secretary and treasurer, Int. Yip Shin Wen and Int. Yuvan Ravindran respectively.
The preparation for this event started on 10th of August. Despite the lack of time for preparation of this event, the junior Interactors still managed to finish their preparations for the event to run smoothly. The junior Interactors were separated into groups with different tasks and they all did their best to prepare for this event.
On the 9th of September, 15 juniors left for Concorde Hotel at 10.30 a.m. to set up the decorations. The other junior members left the school at 1.15 p.m. followed by the seniors that left 10 minutes later. The junior members that arrived at the venue arranged themselves at the entrance to welcome the senior members. At about 2.15 p.m., the Interactors started to enjoy the delicious buffet lunch catered by the hotel. While enjoying their meal, the Interactors watched a video presentation prepared by Joshua and his team for the seniors. It contained humour and was very meaningful. After the video presentation, the junior Interactors performed a skit prepared for the seniors. A while later, one of our teacher advisors, Mdm Lavanya gave a speech on behalf of Mr. Kenneth who could not attend the event due to his injury. Mdm Lavanya also shared about her thoughts and love for the club. It was a wonderful and heartwarming speech that touched the heart of all Interactors.
After the speeches ended, we headed out of the hall to take a group picture before heading back to the hall again to enjoy a singing performance. The singing performance was performed by a group of talented junior Interactors. Some of the senior Interactors were given a chance to share their thoughts and experiences of their time in the club. Before the event came to an end, there was a session for the junior Interactors to present gifts specially prepared for the seniors. We had a great bonding time too. At around 4.00 p.m., the event ended and juniors stayed back to clean up the venue.
Through this meaningful event, the juniors were given great opportunity to thank the seniors for their contributions and commitment towards the club and to appreciate their effort of putting in their all to make events successful. We are glad the seniors enjoyed their last interact event in their secondary school life. Overall the event was a successful one and everyone had a great time.
