When Kysis Cleans | By: Siti Najihah Adli

On the 12th of September 2015, students of KYSIS were given the opportunity to participate in their first International Youth Award (IYA) activity. For those of you who do not have a clue about IYA, it is actually a youth empowerment program suited for youths of ages 14 to 24 years old. The main purpose of the IYA is to encourage youths to volunteer their times doing something that ben- efits the community. The award comprises of three different levels to
accomplish, the Bronze, the Silver and the Gold level. In order to be certified with the completion of each level, participants need to complete four distinct sections; Service, Skills, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey.

This is a great opportunity for KYSIS students to serve the community with the energy we have, and I hope this will drive us towards the creation of a responsible, energetic and reliable youth

For this first IYA activity, the students of KYSIS carried out a beach clean-up activity at Pantai Batu Empat, in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. Taking about an hour and a half journey from the school, all students were thrilled to start their mission and makes the world a better place. Not to forget, the students were also accompanied by their enthusiastic teachers like Mr Colin Mc Elvenny, Mr Christian Setzer, Miss Iris Tay and Miss Kalirenawati Shanmugam.

This beach cleanup certainly made me realize that if we do not care about the cleanliness of our environment, then who else will? It is our responsibility, the cur- rent generations, especially youths like us, to make sure that our beaches are pre- served for the future generations

The Eager Beavers of KYSIS | By : Nurain Nasuha

Some of you might be wondering, off all the animals, why beaver?

On 20 August 2015, The Beaver Informatics Competition (BIC) was held here in the very heart of our own KYSIS campus. For those of you who do not have a clue what is The Beaver Informatics Competition is, it is an international online competition that mixes computer science concepts together with logical problem solving to students. In order to answer the question earlier, the beaver is selected as the mascot due to its industriousness and natural engineering capabilities.

KYSIS had the opportunity to send our own team of ‘beavers’, and here is what one of the successful ‘beaver’ said about the competition: “It is truly a challenging competition. You have to be logical, but at the same time work your brains to apply the necessary computer science concepts,” said Muhammad Afiq Mohamad Ramli who was
awarded with a Bronze medal. The other beavers of KYSIS which were awarded with Honorable Mention were Amirul Rafiq Ahmad Ridzuan, Ayyash Ahmad,
Idrus Aizat Nasiruddin, Ker Shi Ning, Mohammad Asyraaf Mohammad
Zawawi, Muhammad Hafizudin Hanzir and Muhammad Harith Ronhazli.

The Colorific Run | By : Sarah Sofina, AS2

On the 13th of September, 20 students of KYS International School participated in KPMAM Colour Run. The run was just an informal event held by the KPMAM students. It was held at Taman Rempah Ratus Melaka. The event started at 7.30 a.m. with an aerobic routine led by the Jom Kurus Melaka team.

The run started around 7.45 a.m. All of the participants had to runfor 5km to receive a medal as a token of participation. One of KYS students, Adli Zulhusni Bin Mohd Zaini form AS6 succeeded to finish at the 7th place.

As it was a colour run event, at certain checkpoints the crew will throw coloured flour towards the participants. White t-shirts provided for the participants made the coloured flour more visible. The participants were also given the chance to throw the coloured flour to each other.
The run ended by 9.00 a.m. Later, they held a prize giving ceremony to award the participants who managed to finish their run at top three. Before dismissed, the participants were given coloured flour to throw it in the air. By throwing the colour ed flour in the air it marked the end of the event. Kudos to Adli Zulhusni for his wonderful achievement and to all KYSIS student ts who managed to finish the run. Let’s hope our achievement in academic also will be as colourful as the run.
