KUALA TERENGGANU, 25 Jun (Bernama) — Taman Tema Bahasa Inggeris (ETP) yang dibina dengan peruntukan RM350,000 adalah satu pelaburan terbaik dalam melaksanakan program pembinaan modal insan untuk masa depan penduduk Terengganu.

Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said berkata pembinaan ETP dengan kerjasama ExxonMobil merupakan landasan penting kepada generasi muda Terengganu membina diri, berkomunikasi, berkomuniti dan berinovasi dalam menangani isu penguasaan Bahasa Inggeris.

“Kerajaan negeri berkeyakinan pendekatan dan kemudahan yang disediakan oleh ETP dapat merangsang dan meningkatkan penggunaan Bahasa Inggeris di samping memperkukuhkan tahap penggunaannya di peringkat pelajar luar bandar yang penguasaannya masih sederhana,” katanya.

Teks ucapan beliau dibacakan oleh Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pelajaran, Pengajian Tinggi, Sains dan Teknologi dan Sumber Manusia Negeri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman ketika merasmikan ETP Kuala Terengganu di Pusat Kegiatan Guru (PKG) Tok Jiring di sini hari ini.

Beliau yakin penguasaan Bahasa Inggeris di kalangan pelajar sekolah dapat dipertingkatkan dengan pelbagai aktiviti di ETP tersebut seperti Klinik Bahasa Inggeris, Bercerita, Kelas Drama, Online Pen pal, Art Attack, Book Talk, Klinik IT selain pembangunan dan infrasruktur Bahasa Inggeris yang diwujudkan melalui projek Terowong ETP, ETP Mini Zoo, ETP Kiosk, ETP Bistro dan ETP Memory Lane.

Ketika berucap sebelum itu, Pengurus Perhubungan Awam ExxonMobil Farid Jaafar berkata ETP Tok Jiring merupakan kemudahan kedua dibina dengan peruntukan ExxonMobil selepas ETP di Kemasik, Kemaman pada tahun 2003 yang menelan belanja RM350,000.

Katanya ETP Tok Jiring dijangka memberi kemudahan pembelajaran Bahasa Inggeris kepada lebih 50,000 pelajar dari 59 buah sekolah rendah di sekitar Kuala Terengganu.

Pembinaan ETP kedua itu dilakukan berikutan sambutan baik daripada kalangan pelajar selepas ETP Kemasik memulakan operasi yang digunakan oleh lebih 5,000 pelajar.

KEMAMAN (NST): The wait is almost over for 170 employees of a hypermarket in Kemasik, who have been on unpaid leave since January.

After more than eight months, the Giant Super Store at Mesra Mall will be open for business soon.

Sources close to Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said the anchor tenant of the only shopping mall in the area would be issued a business licence soon by the Kemaman Municipal Council.

Sources declined to say when exactly the store would open, but added the menteri besar was expected to announce it soon.

The hypermarket opening had been a thorny issue for Ahmad, who was embroiled in a power struggle with others over his position, but observers noted that the Kijal assemblyman now has a clear path ahead with his development plans after the Umno leadership said he would remain as menteri besar.
This can only be good news for Azim Azmuddin Abdul Aziz, 21, who thought his prayers were answered when he got the sales assistant job at Giant in early October last year.

But his joy lasted for only two months when he received a letter, asking him to temporarily go on unpaid leave until the store, which was supposed to begin in October, could be opened for business.

The father of a one-year-old daughter thought the delay would be brief but after four months, he knew he had to look for another job.

After an exhaustive search he got a job as a part-time general helper at the nearby Kemaman Port.

Similarly, Wan Mohd Fauzi Wan Ali was in the dark why the store’s opening was delayed, especially when it was fully stocked with products.

He said he had to accept the unpaid leave deal because of family commitments.

Cashier Norliza Mohamad, 21, said she was employed by the hypermarket in May last year and was sent for training in Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Shah Alam and Damansara.

She wanted the job badly because she could not accept employment at any of the outstation stores as her father had passed away and she needed to help her mother raise her younger school-going brother and sister.
