Inspired by past struggles for independence, the Sports and Recreation Club of MSU College Sungai Petani got together with members of their Student Representatives Council (SRC) to scale the Baling Mountain in Kedah.

 

“The hiking activity is a challenge to the physical as well as mental stamina,” said Diploma in Graphic Design student Mohammad Hafiz Hussain, “symbolic of the hardships faced by our freedom fighters. And the cardio workout involved is expected to burn off some calories, too.”

 

Besides exposing the participants to the basics of mountain climbing, the sports and fitness programme supported by MSU College’s Student Development Unit aimed to instill a love for nature through this year’s Sayangi Malaysia, Malaysia Bersih theme (literally, ‘Love Malaysia, Clean Malaysia’).

 

 

United in their love of both nation and nature, participants of the Merdeka Charity Hike took the Jalur Gemilang – the country’s national flag – up the mountain; unveiling it when they reached the mountaintop, accompanied by recitations of patriotic poetry. Malaysia celebrated her 62nd Independence Day this year, and the 56th Malaysia Day. 

 

 

Joining the students were the authorities, comprising the Malaysian Royal Police (PDRM) and the Fire and Rescue Department (BOMBA); as well as the Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA), members of staff from the local hospital and town council, and of the local communities.
