It was a reasonably long journey that Emila Yusof and I took to meet the students of SK Tanjung Tuang. The school is located in Kota Samarahan, about 40 km from Kuching.

The distance did not matter as it was worth going to SK Tanjung Tuang. More than 100 students were waiting for Emila to arrive. Emila, whose visit is supported by Oyez Books, got into the act rightaway with a 3D paper cutting session. The children had a great time with the entire activity. The main objective of the session was to develop the fine motor skills that young children need in order to hold pencils.

Before the activity began, Emila gave them a talk and laid out guidelines. With a little help from the teachers, not only did the children execute their plans well, they also enjoyed themselves immensely.
