Resort, NGO conduct medical check on school children

13th March, 2018

KOTA KINABAU: Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa and Mercy Malaysia visited the resort’s adopted school, SK Bantayan (Inanam), to update the children’s medical records.

The records monitor the children’s health during their years at the school to ensure they are growing well. The annual health check includes measuring their height and weight, vision tests and vaccination monitoring.

While the volunteers from Mercy Malaysia conducted health checks for all the pupils, the resort kept the parents busy with a cooking demonstration by their Executive Chef Daniel Shepherd.

Shepherd taught the parents to cook Australian-style smashed avocado and tomatoes with poached eggs and mixed seeds and local-caught Barramundi (Ikan Siakap) served with fried local mixed greens and potato, alfalfa sprout salad and pesto oil.

He gave them tips on how to cook simple and healthy meals for their respective families using local ingredients, “All dishes were made from local sourced products with readily available supply in local market place and quality non saturated oils.”

The resort adopted SK Bantayan, Inanam in 2016 and together with various local business partners, have since been supporting it through various planned activities, including English book donations to the school’s library, provision of nutritious food for the children who cannot afford to bring their own snacks to school, working with the local medical community to create medical records for the students and measure their nutrition levels, maintenance and upgrading of current infrastructure to create a safe environment for the pupils.

The resort’s employees also organise regular visits to the school to teach the pupils English and have helped start a fruit garden in the school compound.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner whilst balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders.
