Principal of Pioneer Junior College, Mrs Tan-Kek Lee Yong watches on as Mr Masagos Zulkifli left his mark in the college.

 

The J2 MLEP students showcased their talent by performing a contemporary drama entitled “Tepuk Amai Amai”. “Tepuk Amai-Amai” is an experimental theatre piece that delves into issues that are relevant to students today, in their academic pursuits. The performance will be staged by the graduating students of the MLEP in Pioneer Junior College.  Combining elements of ensemble work, singing, and multimedia, this contemporary play provides a refreshing take on the usage of the Malay Language in performance as it brings the audience on an intimate journey of self-discovery, personal relationships, as well as their struggles in meeting the expectations imposed by their parents, the society, and especially themselves. They will slowly realise that dreams are beyond paper qualifications. “Tepuk Amai-Amai” depicts the evolution of the Malay Language and the Malay students of today. The audience found the piece engaging as it speaks of the current issues faced by students.
