Reception at Assunta Schools for Martin Jacques

Life at the two Assunta schools in Petaling Jaya has finally returned to normal following the disruptions wrought by the pandemic. Martin Jacques, the chair of the Harinder Veriah Trust, visited both schools between 8-13 June while on a special visit to KL. He met the Headteacher at the Primary School and other members of staff and attended a special welcoming ceremony at which he met all the HVT girls. The following week he met members of staff and the HVT girls at the Secondary School. Over 20 girls were present and they all spoke movingly about how the support the Trust gives them has helped improve their lives and education.

The girl in the yellow shirt gave a very moving speech about her life and the huge problems she has faced.

Thank You...

“I like to attend HVT tuition because it makes my family happy. I am lucky to be given a school bag, food, shoes, books and pencils. I say “Thank you” to Mr Martin. I want to pray to my God, so that God can make him happy.”
