PORT DICKSON, June 11 - The Co-Curriculum and Student Development Centre, UPM, in collaboration with the International Institute of Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences, recently performed community service to beautify Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
The community service was initiated by the Co-curricular Bakti Siswa (Community Service) students, Group 6, due to their love of the environment and preserving natural resources.
Programme director, Nur Qistina Zahra Mohd Radhi, said the programme's objective was to foster the cooperation between UPM students and the community to cultivate a spirit of cooperation and raise awareness of love for the environment and preserving aquaculture resources in the community.
“Various activities have been carried out for students to develop responsibility towards the community. And among the activities carried out are creating infographic posters with the theme of aquaculture breeding, beach cleaning, drawing the letters ‘I-AQUAS UPM’ on stone walls and landscaping around I-AQUAS, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan,” he said.
UPM Bakti Siswa facilitator, The Co-Curriculum and Student Development Centre, Hasnah Abu Bakar, said the programme offered learning modules that cover seven elements, namely entrepreneurial skills, communication skills, lifelong learning skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, teamwork skills, technical and ethical skills and professional values.
"Besides that, cognitive elements related to non-academic skills and soft skills are among the elements that have been identified as critical in the working world, which is global in nature with rapid technological change," he said.
Meanwhile, soft skills could help develop human interaction as well as create a sense of culture and community, and have a positive impact in life. - UPM
