AUSMAT celebrated Teacher Appreciation Day & Talent Time on 9th of August, a momentous day devoted to celebrating and appreciating AUSMAT lecturers’ hard work, dedication and sacrifices.
Kicking off the event was the presentation of a mock cheque of RM18,087 to PAWS Animal Welfare Society, a non-profit animal shelter in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The fund was collected through donations and the annual I-Care Charity Run which was a seven-kilometre run around Sunway City. Then, the Talent Time competition featured amazing performances by talented lecturers and students.
This year’s Talent Time had solo singer Izabelle take home the third prize with a spellbinding performance of the song “Listen”. The second prize winner Samantha captivated the audience with her vocal prowess by singing Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” while the dynamic dance duo Darren & Chin Mun wowed the audience and emerged definitively as champion with their original and inventive choreography.
A deafening round of applause overtook Jeffrey Cheah Hall when AUSMAT lecturers Ms. Lily, Ms. Diana and Ms. Yang went onto the stage to perform Linda Lyndell’s ‘What A Man.’ Their magnetic performance was followed by an electrifying duet by Ms. Lily and Mr. Jason Soh, performing “You Are the Reason” by Calum Scott and “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran.
