Tronoh, 16 October: Being the biggest event that is held annually in UTP in conjunction with the Convocation Ceremony, Convofair 2011 culminated with a colourful charity concert which was conducted successfully although it was raining buckets.
Convofair 2011 which was held at the Oval Park played an imperative role in commemorating the graduation of UTP students. Besides UTP citizens, parents and visitors also enjoyed this event. In short, this golden opportunity encouraged interaction among students and outsiders consisting of various races, religions and background, both locally and internationally.
For this year, even though the Convofair committees faced the obstacle of time constraint, they did not disappoint the students. A wide variety of sub-events such as Treasure Hunt, Futsal De‟ Convo, Convo Run, Convo Rod Challenge and Kayak Competition took place around the campus during this period, spicing up this grand celebration.
One of the more meaningful programmes, named, The Kasih Project‟ instilled the caring and loving spirit among the committee members. About 20 committee members were sent to Rumah Amal Haruman Kasih to reach out to the orphans there. Besides staying overnight at the orphanage, they also cheered the orphans by bringing them to Teluk Senangin where they built sandcastles and feasted together by the beach.
The Illuminated Oval Park
Cash and kind were the driving force to make the exhibition a success. Booths for sponsors, kid’s playground, food and beverage, international cultures, graduation accessories and Convofair 2011merchandise had transformed Oval Park into a hive of activities from 14-16 October. Throngs of people visited the exhibition and enjoyed themselves immensely in this event. The celebrations got off to a dazzling start with the officiating ceremony on the first night. Performance from Gamelan, UTP Performing Art Group, Bhangra and the Uzbekistan Students established a lively atmosphere that night. For the second day, once again the crowd was able to witness another impressive forum with the theme “Keluarga Dan Kerjaya”, presented by three honourable guests, Ir Haji Khairil Nizam b.Khairudin, Muhammad b. Abdullah and Pn. Suzana Ghazali with Hamzah b. Nawawi (President of Student Representative Council, UTP) as the moderator. Apart from that, the Tronoh Theater Shop and the Chinese Orchestra also showcased their talents with compelling and amazing performances.
Rock And Roll In The Rain!
Being the climax of Convofair 2011, the Charity Concert on the third day had attracted a myriad of people where the Indian Orchestra, Precious Gift Home and Darussalam Orphanage were involved in the show. Muzzy Band and Mirwana then rocked the entire night with live performances to whet the appetites of the audiences. The night had brought forth rounds of rousing applause, which also created a memorable ambience for Convofair 2011.
