The next stop for Emila and I was at SK Empila, a school that had more than 55 students. Most of the students who participated in this session are those aged 10 years and above.

Emila, the master craftsperson, whose visit has been made possible by Oyez Books, laid down the theme first. And what could be better in Kuching than cats.

The children made some lovely cat crafts from papers. They had lots of fun. It was an experience in cooperation and hands-on learning as the children ā€“ with some help from Emila ā€“ came up with simple yet stunning designs.

At the end, the smiles said it all.
