PINTAR Annual Report 2010
Chairman’s Statement
It has been almost one and half years since I have been at the helm of PINTAR Foundation.
Throughout this time, I have gathered many great experiences as Chairman of this Foundation and
it is, without a doubt, one of the greatest honours that have ever been conferred on me.
I am truly pleased that 2010 saw the continuation of a very active and successful year for the
members, students, teachers, partners and friends of PINTAR Foundation. Over the past twelve
months, the Vision, Mission and Goals of the Foundation have been pursued according to good
standards of quality and excellence, so as to create an infrastructure of services that has benefited
the nation’s young generation - especially those living in underserved and vulnerable communities.
With the aim of further developing the growth of PINTAR Foundation, programming coverage and
value of programmes offered, PINTAR Foundation embarked on a strategic initiative via Focused
Group Engagements (FGEs), to uncover schools’ and members’ needs, issues and concerns in a
direct and strategic manner. The FGE provided PINTAR Foundation with a landscape overview to
further understand and respond to the needs, issues and concerns of the stakeholders. Specifically,
the FGE also gave birth to a macro model that not only captured the current needs, but also the
potential opportunities for growth and actions for the Foundation and its stakeholders.
Moving forward, the Foundation will concentrate on the following seven main thrusts. They are
Needs Assessment, Programme Design and Implementation, 360 Monitoring and Evaluation,
Graduation Plan and Strategy, Partners Programmes, Skills Building and National Programmes.
The implementation or execution models to drive these thrusts are PINTAR Consultancy Model,
PINTAR Menu, PINTAR Alumni Programme and the PINTAR TV. It is our hope and aim to focus
on developing and implementing these main thrusts via the models and be able to continuously
develop growth by way of active and mutual engagement with our stakeholders.
Throughout 2010, PINTAR Foundation continued to play the role of advocator to ensure
programmes were implemented by PINTAR members in a holistic and methodical manner. Our
Management Team worked closely with members and collaborated with state and local authorities
during the course of their schools’ adoption. The team also involved themselves directly with the
execution of PINTAR activities in schools. As a result, more schools were positively affected as we
managed to touch the lives of even more needy and deserving students in the country.
During the course of the year, we also expanded our reach to Sarawak and are happy to report
that we are getting support from the state authority as well as local companies in the region. This
positive response has made us confident that more Sarawak based companies will join PINTAR.
We also plan to spread our wings to Sabah, in 2011.
PINTAR Foundation’s ‘PINTAR National Programme’, which was launched in 2009, was a major
success in 2010 and became a household name among students and teachers alike. The
continuation of the ‘PINTAR Creativity & Innovation’ theme for the PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit’s
(PMLU) Road Shows and the introduction of the PINTAR BattleBot Challenge positioned PINTAR
in good stead. Due to the success of these programmes, the Foundation plans to implement more
interesting programmes like these in 2011.
The year under review also saw our members and partners, once again, enthusiastically support a
variety of national programmes, charitable activities and community initiatives organised by PINTAR
“ we managed to
touch the lives
of even more needy and
deserving
students in the country
”

Chairman’s Statement
Foundation. In terms of fundraising, our first effort culminated in the collaboration with ‘CUCI
The Musical 2’. This collaboration helped raise funds through an array of activities that included
the selling of the tickets, as well as the sales of PINTAR and the musical’s products during the
shows. Thanks to the success of this joint-venture, we will most likely participate in more of these
fundraising activities in the near future as we endeavour to create sustainable funding for continuous
development and the implementation of our National Programme.
I am confident that 2011 will be yet another special year for all of us at PINTAR Foundation. In
2011, we will re-introduce our PMLU with a new theme, and implement more National Programmes
for the students, teachers and the communities. One of the highlights will be a series of PINTAR
Carnivals, which we plan to hold in four locations throughout the country. These carnivals will
heighten the learning experience even more for our students as they will include a myriad of exciting
and fun activities that will both entertain and educate simultaneously, all the while enriching and
empowering our PINTAR schools and their surrounding communities with the gift of knowledge and
experiential learning.
I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Technip Geoproduction (M) Sdn Bhd, Neoh
Foundation and Seberang Flour Mill Sdn Bhd as new members of PINTAR Foundation. I look
forward to working with them and all our members in our quest to make a difference to our next
generation.
As is the case with any organisation, PINTAR Foundation does not succeed on the basis of any one
individual or any one group alone. Its successes are instead the result of a collaborative effort that
involves many contributing individuals who work towards achieving collective goals and ambitions.
Therefore, I would like to convey my gratitude and appreciation in particular to my colleagues on the
Board of Trustees for their support, dedication and commitment over the year. I would also like to
thank the PINTAR Management Team and staff members for their invaluable diligence and energy in
implementing the Vision, Mission and Goals of the Foundation.
My sincere appreciation goes to all friends and volunteers of PINTAR Foundation for their continued
commitment, involvement and support, thus far. Finally, I would like to thank all members of PINTAR
Foundation and their employees for their ongoing support, encouragement and constant raising of
expectations of what we do and how we do it as this only serves to ensure that we constantly reach
for the stars.
Thank you.

Review of Operations
In 2010, the PINTAR Foundation continued to grow, provide services to our stakeholders and
implement National programmes for all PINTAR students nationwide, including Sabah and Sarawak.
Financial Performance
The year under review posed considerable challenges with the sharp increase of administrative
costs due to an expansion of the Management Team, coupled with the implementation of more
programmes rolled out.
Total expenditure was RM2,575,996 with 30% spent on administrative costs totaling RM781,581.
However, we received an additional income through new membership fees and various fund raising
activities totaling RM145,000 and RM710,714 respectively.
The year had seen the introduction of PINTAR BattleBot Challenge, while we continued with
PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit, as well as School Preparedness Programme to further inspiring the
PINTAR students in all corners of the country, with 36% allocation from our total expenditure.
To further strengthen our brand equity, RM296,059 was spent to develop new PINTAR portal and
running other promotion activities in 2010. An additional 8% was apportioned for the execution of
Focused Group Engagement and other activities.
Management Structure
Over the past one year we have strengthened and expanded our Management team to fill up
the Administration, Finance, Programme and Stakeholder Engagement positions to improve our
financial management, enhance the development of the National programmes and beef up the
relationship with our key stakeholders. We have also set up a new Implementation Unit to facilitate
and manage the execution of the National programmes for the schools in all states, throughout the
country.
The strength, depth and breadth of our teams will stand us in good stead in the coming year, which
is going to be another challenging one for the Foundation. The recruitment of the Programme
Director to overseeing the daily operations is part of our main agenda as we go through the
transition exercise and continue to work on the delivery models as part of our Strategy Direction for
the next few years to come.
National Programme
In 2010, PINTAR Foundation continued with the implementation of a one year National Programme
under “Creativity and Innovation” theme. The PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU) completed
its journey and reached out to more than 50,000 PINTAR students in 101 schools in Peninsular
Malaysia.
As an extension of the PMLU, we introduced ‘PINTAR BattleBot Challenge’ (PBBC) for the
students to apply the knowledge gained from the activities they experienced in PMLU through this
competition. PBBC allows students to use their knowledge in science, mathematics and technology
as well as individual creativity to construct the strongest robot using LEGO technology. This
competition was launched by YB Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop in February at Sekolah Kebangsaan
Permatang Buloh, Tasek Gelugor Pulau Pinang and received 116 participation from PINTAR
primary schools throughout Malaysia. The final competition was held in Putrajaya on 15 December
2010. Another National Programme under ‘Disaster Risk Management’ theme also continued to
provide an in-depth understanding among students on the basic concept of hazards and disaster
risk reduction for students and teachers, in the year under review. PINTAR Foundation teamed up
with MERCY Malaysia as an expert in this area, to implement this programme. We completed this
programme in November 2010 and it has benefited more than 3,358 students and 150 teachers,
nationwide.
Partnerships
PINTAR continued to become one of the platforms for corporate organizations to participate in to
deliver their Corporate Responsibility objectives especially to support human capital development
for the country. In 2010, PINTAR Foundation has extended our reach to Sarawak and received
good co-operation from the state government and the Sarawak based companies. We launched
PINTAR in Sarawak on 6th October 2010 at Sekolah Kebangsaan Maong Hilir, Kuching and four
(4) local companies accepted a certificate of participation to signify their participation in PINTAR
programme during the ceremony which was officiated by the Chief Minister of Sarawak.
In Peninsular Malaysia, our marketing effort sustained, called on more corporations to be part
of Nation building agenda through PINTAR. We partnered with various organisations to reach to
our common goal of providing the support required to our students in the area of education. We
received good feedbacks and responses from several organisations which interested on supporting
PINTAR throughout 2010 and we are positive that we will be working with more corporations next
year.
New companies joined PINTAR Foundation in 2010, namely Technip Geoproduction (M) Sdn Bhd,
Neoh Foundation and Seberang Flour Mill Sdn Bhd. We believe with the addition of these new
members, there will be more exciting activities will be created for PINTAR students in line with our
vision to inspire them to become the more competent and well-equipped leaders of tomorrows.

Review of Operations
Challenges Ahead
The Foundation realises that there are a few critical challenges that needs to be addressed in
the years to come such as obtaining sustainable funding, as well as building our brand equity in
the market. Other challenges include continuing with beneficial programmes which address our
stakeholders’ needs, are relevant and are always in demand by all the Foundation’s beneficiaries.
Therefore, developing a support mechanism for schools that have completed the three-year
adoption period is also crucial, to ensure the continuation of support and, most importantly, the
sharing of knowledge among members of the graduated schools which include both students and
teachers so that their improvement is sustainable.
Focused Group Engagement and Strategic Direction
Equipped with the awareness all these challenges that lie ahead, in April 2010, PINTAR Foundation
embarked on a journey to find out what our main stakeholders thought about us and the PINTAR
programme in general. We organised Focused Group Engagement (FGE) sessions during which we
conducted our very first study to capture and draft a situational analysis of PINTAR – highlighting
issues that needed to be discussed, as well as listing the needs and concerns of our main
stakeholders, that is, our heads of schools, teachers and students, participating companies and all
members of our Board of Trustees. Once we had gleaned all the information we needed, we were
ready to plan the strategic direction for the Foundation, moving forward.
Based on the FGE findings, PINTAR Foundation has since formulated the Foundation’s three-year
strategic plan that will see concentration on ‘Character Building’ as this will be one of three main
focal areas. The other two will be ‘Brand Equity’ and ‘Research and Development’.
Another main thrust that we will be working on in the next few years is the Graduation Plan &
Strategy – where the Alumni Model will be activated to further this initiative.The Foundation believes
that strategic planning is a valuable tool that allows us to focus on identifying and prioritizing
our challenges and opportunities, while simultaneously developing potential solutions. Strategic
planning guides our management team and staff in executing each of our responsibilities, toward
more impactful outcomes.
Looking Forward
Although new challenges will undoubtedly present themselves along the way – as they always
do – we are excited and confident about our future. We know that we can only grow stronger. Our
objective is unwavering – that is, to create value for our stakeholders through quality services and
inspiring National programmes.
Our flagship programme, the PINTAR National Programme, is now entering its third year. New lineups of programmes sporting new exciting themes are ready for implementation. Additionally, our
relationship with our stakeholders will be further cemented through various engagement sessions,
as we strive to educate our new members on PINTAR’s objectives and missions. And as the icing
on the cake, we are positive that our fundraising activities will start to pick up in 2011, as we strive
to fulfill our quest of creating sustainable funding to implement more PINTAR National programmes
to benefit all.

Reaching Out Through
PINTAR National Programme
It is key for the PINTAR Foundation to be recognised as an organisation that
inspires future generations through its PINTAR activities while acting as a
national/credible benchmark that sets the standards for a variety of exciting
and productive programmes trusted by all stakeholders. We will keep
pursuing our National Programmes and will constantly work towards further
optimising its reach to all PINTAR schools in the country.

PINTAR School Preparedness Programme (SPP)
The PINTAR School Preparedness Programme (SPP) was the first National Programme
implemented by the Foundation since 2009, under the theme ‘PINTAR Risk Disaster Management’.
This one-year programme was completed in November 2010 and has so far benefited more than
3,358 students in 90 schools throughout Malaysia.
PINTAR SPP received strong positive feedback from the students and teachers involved as the
module was developed in an innovative and interesting way. It allowed students to get their hands
dirty with practical involvement that in turn, made it easier for them to learn and relate to in their
current situation.
After the students’ last workshop, PINTAR Foundation organised a two day training session for
teachers as part of its sustainability programme, in the hope that these teachers would continue to
conduct their teaching according to this training in future classes.
Overall, students and teachers gave positive feedback and agreed that the programme provides
valuable knowledge for students on the importance of taking care of the environment and school
facilities. They also share the knowledge gained with the families.
“
As a volunteer, I think SPP is a good programme especially for students
living in disaster-prone areas of Malaysia. Even though our country is
fortunate to not be the victim of natural disasters such as earthquakes,
volcanic eruptions, typhoons, etc; we still need to know how to react
during emergency situations. Indeed, this programme is a great effort by
PINTAR Foundation and MERCY Malaysia. Congrats!

PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU)
The much-awaited PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU) continued its road show to more schools
in January after two months of school holidays, completing its journey in June 2010.
In total, the PMLU has touched the lives of more than 150,000 students and 500 other visitors in its
one-year journey, operating under the theme ‘PINTAR Creativity and Innovation’. Apart from visiting
PINTAR schools, the PMLU also received invitations to take part in various events and exhibitions.
For example, the PMLU was invited by YBhg Datin Seri Rosmah Mansur to participate in a two-day
‘Summer Camp’ for PERMATAPintar participants, held at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in late
December 2009.
The PMLU visits have been, without a doubt, one of the most fascinating programmes for PINTAR
schools throughout its run from 2009 to 2010. The PMLU received excellent reviews from visitors;
thanks to its interactivity and the innovative experiential learning it offers.
In its quest to reach out to more students throughout Malaysia, the PMLU will restart its journey
under a new theme – ‘Advocating Responsibility – Opening Hearts, Empowering Minds’ in 2011,
with even more interesting contents and activities.
“
I support the PINTAR programme because it helps vulnerable students in
rural areas and gives them the opportunity to obtain the assistance they
deserve from the corporate world.
The students that I had the chance to work with were very excited when
the PMLU went to their schools and they expressed their hopes for the
bus to return in the future. It’s truly great that the PMLU imparts invaluable
knowledge to these kids while teaching them that learning can be both
educational and fun at the same time. Creating a love for learning in school
children through highly innovative methods of teaching definitely means
better leaders for our nation’s tomorrow.

PINTAR BattleBot Challenge (PBBC)
The PINTAR BattleBot Challenge (PBBC) is a robotic competition where students use their creativity
and knowledge in science, math and technology to design and construct the strongest robot
using LEGO® technology. It is an extension of the PMLU under the theme ‘PINTAR Creativity &
Innovation’. The PBBC was launched on 24th February 2010 by YB Tan Sri Mohamed Nor Yakcop
in Penang. During the launch, several students from PINTAR schools were given the chance to
experience the competition first-hand, making it a great day and wonderful opportunity for these
students who were preparing for the actual competition.
Started in April 2010, the PBBC encompasses 3 levels of challenges namely School, Zone and
National Levels. The school level saw 116 PINTAR primary schools participate, including Sabah
and Sarawak. More than 1,000 students from 110 schools made it to the Zone Level in five states,
being, Penang, Sarawak, Johor, Kelantan and Kedah, and 64 students successfully proceeded to
the National level.
The PBBC came to its final conclusion at the Pullman Hotel in Putrajaya on 15th December 2010
when the final four strongest robots battled against each other to ensure their top four spots. Four
schools that made it to the knock-out stage were Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Feringghi Penang,
Sekolah Kebangsaan Cheng Melaka, Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Matang Buloh, Bagan Serai Perak
and Sekolah Kebangsaan Seberang Ketil Kedah. Both Mohd Khairul Ansarullah Bin Ridzuan and
Ahmad Fahmi Bin Adenan from Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Feringghi emerged as champions and
received prizes from Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Arshad Ayub, Chairman of PINTAR Foundation who also
presented the 2nd, 3rd places and consolation prizes plus the Creativity Award to the winners, as
well as 64 certificates to all participants.
PINTAR Foundation collaborated with CTWorkshop Sdn Bhd as an exclusive partner for this
programme to ensure its implementation went as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
The PBBC received rave reviews from PINTAR students and teachers, nationwide. Due to its
popularity, the PBBC has since become an annual competition for PINTAR students, promoting
creativity and innovation in line with the government’s call for the development of innovative human
capital for the country.

I would like to thank PINTAR Foundation for organising this programme at my school as it was the
perfect opportunity for me to discover and enhance my creativity levels. I hope that this kind of
competition will be held not only at my school but at other schools as well, so more students can
enjoy themselves while learning to be creative. I am sure the BattleBot Challenge will succeed and
prove to be a good platform to identify hidden talent amongst PINTAR students.

Engaging Our Stakeholders
Keeps PINTAR Alive
Through strategic partnership and close relationship with all members
and partners alike, we have been able to identify the most pressing
needs of PINTAR students and schools, nationwide. Our ‘Focused Group
Engagement’ sessions have proven to be a good platform in our quest to
listen to them and ultimately to futher strengthen our relationship with our
stakeholders. We will continue to work on these efforts, as we continue to
engage and respond.
Stakeholder Engagement
PINTAR Roundtables
We kicked off 2010 with the first roundtable of the year with members, inviting all our Board of
Trustees members to be in attendance as our guests of honour. It was held in a quaint restaurant
in the middle of the city. These gatherings provide a platform for our members to share and
mingle with one another, and where we, at PINTAR Foundation, are able to discuss the schools’
performances and their various intervention programmes conducted at each school throughout the
year. This is the 13th gathering for our members since the PINTAR programme first started in 2006.
This time round, the members had the great opportunity to get closer to our Board members and
listen to their many stories that were infused with insights, advice and anecdotes to help guide us
on our journey. On the other hand, the Board had the pleasure of listening to the many interesting
stories regarding the programmes that the members were running at their respective schools. This
meeting served as a good introduction of the PINTAR implementers to our Board members. These
are the very people who are on the ground and in touch with the schools directly.
The second roundtable was held at the KL Tower, where the venue was co-sponsored by our good
friends at TM. Here we discussed the mid-year report on PINTAR schools’ performances submitted
by members. Members are required to submit half yearly reports to the Foundation, which
helps us to not only track the academic performance of the students, but also the literacy rate,
attendance rate and degree of social ills (bullying and smoking). We believe these reports are an
important exercise that help companies to keep track of their schools’ performance and provides
the necessary monitoring framework to ensure impactful results are captured and issues identified
throughout the year.
We also presented findings from the Members’ Needs Analysis captured via Focused Group
Engagement sessions with groups of companies earlier in the year. The members acknowledged
the findings and gave suggestions on how to tackle of the gaps identified. Many of them agreed
that more sharing sessions or platforms must be held for them to learn from one another.
And as is the custom, the Roundtables sessions is also a platform to share educational support
programmes with our members. This year we invited P.S. The Children to talk about Child Abuse
and this particular session turned out to quite an eye opener for most of us. During the Q&A session
most of us admitted that we did not know what to do when faced with the challenges posed by
our presenter. In line with our Advocating Responsibility tagline, this session made us realise that
a lot more can be done to save our children. With these feelings planted in our hearts, PINTAR
Foundation endeavoured to do more in the realm of Advocating Responsibility.

Stakeholder Engagement
PINTAR Focused Group Engagement
In the year under review, PINTAR Foundation conducted a series of ‘Focused Group Engagement’
(FGE) workshops as an avenue to find out our stakeholders’ perception towards the Foundation
and the PINTAR programme in general. It is very heartening to discover that all stakeholders
were able to articulate the ingredients of Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent and Advocating
Responsibility. Based on the findings, all the different focus groups, be it the students, teachers,
Head Teachers and the Members, picked Advocating Responsibility as the most important life skill
to have, and the most lacking aspect touched and taught in schools.
Armed with this finding, PINTAR Foundation and its members and partners will be focusing more
on the Advocating Responsibility theme in the years to come, and this has been translated into the
Foundation’s three year strategic plan.
Another interesting finding we have is on students’ perception on their ‘dream teacher’. Our
discussions with them showed that they watch their teachers very closely, and are able to describe
what their idea of a ‘dream teacher’ is, based on their observation and experience. “Cara mengajar
yang lain dari lain, selalu bergaul dengan murid, mudah berkawan, tidak lewat masuk kelas, tidak
pilih kasih dan adil, ceria, sentiasa senyum, berdedikasi, kemas, tidak terlalu garang” – were some
of the identified behaviors by students on what a ‘dream teacher’ should be.
When talking to the teachers, we find that they see their role as developing and nurturing
responsible human beings. Most are dedicated and active in carrying out this task and in line with
this, many of them are eager to participate in character building exercises, motivational seminars,
so that their level of commitment remains high towards their students. This is being tackled under
PINTAR Core Module 3 – Capacity and Capability Building for Teachers and Parents. Going further,
teachers also voiced their concerns about the constant focus on exams – and feel that more
initiatives, like PINTAR, must be done to create a holistic child. Some students in lower classes
are not academically inclined and need different attention and outlet to cultivate their talent and
intelligence.
Most head teachers raised their concern on their schools’ status after the completion of adoption
period. Many of them want to continue being adopted, but the Foundation does not encourage
this as it will create a culture of dependency – which is the exact opposite of the programme’s
objective. Our aim is to go into a school and make it stronger, so that when we leave, the school is
ready to fly! We will be working on the Graduation Plan & Strategy – where the Alumni Model will be
activated to drive this forward. Besides that, head teachers are also asking for Leadership courses
– to answer their concerns on the lack of dedicated teachers, teacher motivation and too many
stakeholders to manage.
Under these FGE sessions, we spoke to 18 companies and 22 schools – reaching about 800
different individuals comprising of implementers, head teachers, teachers, and not to forget, the
students themselves. We also engaged further with our esteemed Board members, to identify any
gaps and expectations to be delivered through PINTAR Foundation.
Key Findings
All stakeholders picked “Advocating Responsibility” as the most important life skill to have
It is found that students watch their teachers very closely and are able to articulate what their
‘dream teacher’ should be
Teachers feel that there is too much focus on exams and appreciate PINTAR programmes as it
gives them a chance to work on other skills

PINTAR Portal
We revamped our existing website and rebranded it the PINTAR Corporate Portal. Sporting a
completely redesigned and amazingly vibrant look with new content, significant layout updates and
great feature functionality, our new portal now includes a powerful and innovative facility that allows
online communication between the PINTAR Foundation and its visitors.
In order to take advantage of this powerful communication tool, our newly designed website
entices users to log on, thanks to its comprehensive and informative content that is presented in
interesting and creative ways possible. To start with, the selected interviews and success stories
featured in it, starring individuals who we have been working with to achieve our vision, mission and
goals, provide a very human aspect to the portal. The PINTAR portal is also very far-reaching, as
it appeals to all our target audiences. As it is divided into three segments that target three different
audiences - the School (for students and teachers), Corporate Malaysia (members/partners and
organisations) and Guests – there’s something for everyone here. We have created avenues through
which everyone can communicate, making the portal interactive, for instance, there is a Corporate
segment dedicated to PINTAR members, thus providing a channel for PINTAR members to update
their schedules as well as to upload and update their blogs while sharing their PINTAR stories with
other members online.
Furthermore, we created a mini-site exclusively for our school-going audience. This site allows them
to learn and have fun at the same time and, most importantly for young children, it connects them
with other students online. This way, they can experience our exciting learning tools and educational
games, as well as have the chance to be creative while sharing their inventions, inspirational work
and stories with their peers. And of course, we have content catering specifically to our Guests.
Visitors to the PINTAR Corporate portal will be able to make donations, as well as purchase PINTAR
souvenir items online in a highly-secured environment, as part of the Foundation’s effort to raise
funds for our programmes. These visitors will also be able to learn about PINTAR’s programmes,
the achievements chalked up, how they benefit all Malaysians, and more.
With the rebranded PINTAR portal, we have yet again proved our commitment to our long term
strategic plan of becoming an organisation that promotes intelligence, creativity, talent and
responsible behaviour. We have redesigned, rebranded and realigned the site to PINTAR’s brand,
and we are committed to constantly updating the contents and functionalities of the portal so as to
fulfill the expectations of all our stakeholders so that they keep coming back for more.

CUCI The Musical 2 In Support of PINTAR Foundation
Throughout the year, PINTAR’s fundraising activities continued to bring in increased amounts of
funds and we are grateful for the loyal support that we have received from the members and friends
of PINTAR.
The Gala Night of the play ‘CUCI The Musical 2’ in support of PINTAR Foundation in June 2010,
was a success. The musical was the sequel to the highly popular ‘CUCI The Musical’ which was
first staged in 2009. Both musicals were produced by Tall Order Productions Sdn Bhd.
This was the first time that the PINTAR Foundation collaborated with members of the performing
arts community to raise funds for its programmes, and we hope to continue to receive similar
support in our future fundraising events. The partnership with cast members of this musical saw
proceeds from the sale of tickets and souvenirs used to run various programmes for children under
the PINTAR National programme, including literacy, environmental awareness, talent nurturing
programmes and other various education-related activities.
Additionally, we hope that watching the musical inspired some of our more artistically-inclined
students to broaden their career options in the future. We believe that the cast members of the
musical would have motivated our students to realise their dreams through hard work and self-belief
which was the basic concept that underscored the entire storyline of the musical.
With the support from our members, partners and friends, we know that we can hold many more
fundraising events in 2011 and we look forward with confidence towards the coming year.

PINTAR Launch in Sarawak
In our effort to attract more corporate companies to participate in PINTAR, we collaborated with
the Chief Minister of Sarawak, YAB Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Bin Mahmud, to launch the PINTAR
programme for the Sarawak state at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Maong Hilir, Kuching Sarawak
on Wednesday, 6th October 2010.
It was believed that the PINTAR programme would offer the Corporate Citizens in Sarawak a good
chance to assist the communities and to start giving back to the societies in which they operate.
PINTAR would ensure their Corporate Responsibility programmes are carried out in a more
organised and effective manner.
During the launch, 4 Sarawak companies joined PINTAR as members of the Foundation, namely
WEIDA Berhad, NAIM Holding Berhad, Sarawak Plantation Berhad and TAS Offshore Sdn Bhd.
We anticipate that more Sarawak based companies will come forward and participate in PINTAR
and we plan to also extend our reach to corporate companies in Sabah in 2011.

We were first given a briefing and then taught how to build the
robots at UNITEN Bangi. During the Group stage, our robot
defeated the other teams’ robots so we proceeded to the Final
round. Four teams were to compete in the Final competition
that would be held at the Pullman Hotel in Putrajaya.
The PINTAR BattleBot Challenge required students to build robots
using LEGO building blocks, and our robot later battled with other
teams’ robots in the arena, with the last robot standing as the
winner of the competition.
I participated in the National Level of the PINTAR BattleBot
Challenge, organised in UNITEN, Bangi, from 13th – 15th
December 2010. I represented my school, SK Batu Feringghi,
Penang, with my friend, Ahmad Fahmi Bin Adenan.
From 13th to 15th December 2010, my friend and I
represented our school, SK Batu Feringghi, Penang, at the
National Level of the PINTAR BattleBot Challenge which was
held in Putrajaya.
We were so excited and nervous at the same time. The other teams’ robots were very well
constructed and each had its own uniqueness. However, Cikgu Dayana was very supportive of
us and she convinced us that we could win. And when we finally did win the battle, it was like a
dream come true. We could hardly believe that our robot had made it and had become the last
robot standing in the arena!
We were so happy with our victory that had won us two flight tickets to Bali, a trophy, a
certificate of participation, a LEGO set, a bicycle and a vitamin hamper, as well as compliments
from many of the people at the event. We felt such pride when we won the competition, and
most importantly, we were happy that we had made our school and teachers proud.
We were so excited when our robot won all the group stages
and proceeded to the final level which was held at the Pullman Hotel in Putrajaya. At this last level,
only four teams competed against each other and I had a bunch of mixed feelings which included
happiness, nervousness and excitement. And when our robot finally won, we couldn’t believe our
luck!. We were the champions and managed to make our school and teachers proud – and we
owe our victory to Cikgu Dayana who constantly gave us great advice and support.

What do you think of the PINTAR Programme?
What do you think of the PINTAR Programme?
To me, PINTAR is a good programme as it really takes into account the needs of the students and
the school, and works towards implementing beneficial and fun activities to fulfil these needs.
PINTAR is a very comprehensive programme that not only focuses on academic improvement,
but also endeavours to ensure that the students involved become well-rounded individuals who are
intelligent, talented and, at the same time, responsible citizens. And the best thing is that PINTAR
not only helps students but also participating teachers too! To me, this is perfect as we believe that
our teachers are the pillars of our schools, and strong pillars will definitely strengthen the whole
building!
I think PINTAR is a great programme for me and my friends. We have many of these programmes
in school and they are very different and interesting, and a lot more fun to participate in.
Have PINTAR activities benefited or changed you in any way?
One of the activities was called ‘grab bag’ and that was my favourite as we were asked by the
PINTAR facilitators to pick cards with pictures on them to identify what we thought would be the
most important things to grab in an emergency. It was fun and a good way to learn as until today,
I still remember these important items and I know that this knowledge will come in handy if I ever
need it.
In less than a year of being here, I have full confidence in the PINTAR programme. I am sure
PINTAR will be nothing but beneficial to us here at SK Titi Gajah. Last year, thanks to MAHB,
many tuition classes were organised to assist students to prepare themselves for their exams.
Additionally, our teachers were given the chance to improve their teaching skills with workshops
and competitions designed to motivate them. As a result, our teachers were more than willing to
participate as they realised that the programme would benefit them tremendously and help us
grow as an entity, together. On a personal note, I feel that PINTAR has changed me for the better,
both as a individual and as a teacher,
and it has also inspired me to become a
better human being.
What are your hopes for PINTAR?
I hope PINTAR will continue to progress
and help more deserving schools
throughout the country. I also hope that,
after three years of the adoption period,
the relationship between SK Titi
Gajah, MAHB and PINTAR Foundation,
will remain strong. We may be able to be
independent, but any continued support
from PINTAR would definitely a bonus.
An alumni programme would be the
best solution, so we have the chance to
share the amazing experiences we have
garnered by being part of this wonderful
programme, as well as an opportunity to
continue to be involved in future PINTAR
programmes. Thank you PINTAR!
Have PINTAR activities benefited or changed you in any way?
I remember last year when PINTAR organised a workshop for Disaster Preparedness in Schools. I
participated in it and had lots of fun. There were so many wonderful group activities that taught us
to be well prepared during a disaster.
Thank you PINTAR for such great activities
and I hope I’ll be able take part in more of your
interesting programmes in the future.
What are your hopes for PINTAR?
I hope PINTAR will stay at my school forever, and
more interesting programmes will be organised for
us here. PINTAR activities allow us to experience
education and knowledge from a different and fun
perspective. My friends and I are always happy
to participate in PINTAR programmes because
they’re never boring and we love them!
PINTAR is simply the best!

involved in PINTAR activities since 2007. TNB has 27 PINTAR adopted schools nationwide and
implemented various activities for teachers and students at their schools in the year under review.
Headmasters and Teachers Camp
TNB strives to make sure that all TNB teachers in their adopted PINTAR schools are equipped
with the necessary skills to improve their teaching methods as well as for personal growth and
development. To this effect, TNB organised the ’Headmasters and Teachers Camp’ to foster
better ties amongst all TNB adopted schools, thus giving them the chance to exchange and share
their success stories. In this camp, participants were also allowed to interactively provide ideas to
improve the implementation of PINTAR programmes in their schools. It also proved to be a platform
for TNB to introduce its business model to these teachers while updating them about the latest
goings-on in the company.
PINTAR Hockey Clinic
This initiative was created in line with one of PINTAR’s main missions, and that is, to identify and
nurture talent. With this in mind, TNB chose to promote hockey in order to inculcate in its students
the spirit of sportsmanship, as well as to show them how talent coupled with hard work in sports
can lead to success. As an organisation, TNB has excelled in this sport through the achievements
of its own top-rated hockey team that in turn, would obviously be the best example for the hockey
clinic students. Therefore, during the clinic, TNB staff members, who are also national hockey
players, were invited to personally teach and train the students on how to improve their game.
Since the start of this clinic, great results have been garnered with the development of many young
talents in the nation’s field of hockey.
New Straits Times Newspaper in Education (NIE) Sponsorship
TNB started sponsoring the New Straits Times (NST) publication for all TNB-adopted PINTAR
schools since 2007. Each school has since received 10 copies of the NST daily, and TNB has spent
RM124, 640 to date, with a further allocation of more than RM240,000 for 10 years of sponsorship.
Students and teachers have found these newspapers invaluable, as they are used as a supplement
in the learning process to improve their vocabulary and skills in the English Language. On top of
that, TNB also organised NIE workshop for the teachers. Others activities included sponsoring
educational materials, tuition classes, seminars and workshops. To ensure the programme’s
successful implementation, TNB has assigned one liaison officer at every school to be company’s
ambassador and mentor to the adopted school.

brainstormed recycling ideas for their school.
The workshop revolved around putting their newly acquired knowledge into action by setting up
recycling projects in their own schools. These projects are in line with the competition requirements
which sees the best usage of given knowledge and seed money. The schools were given RM300

10 schools under the PINTAR programme.
CIMB Foundation Academic Dashboard
CIMB Foundation had previously equipped all the 10 schools with computers and access to on-line
learning. In April 2010, The Foundation took it a step further by introducing the CIMB Foundation
Academic Dashboard, an online education and interactive portal for the 10 schools.
The Dashboard pulls together and enhances the Foundation’s three strategies towards education
– the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a tool for learning and teaching,
improving the standard of English and creating an environment which encourages academic
excellence. The dashboard entrenches the use of ICT in the schools, and helps both the students
and teachers to be more IT-savvy, while enhancing their ICT skills and enabling them to use ICT
as a creative, innovative and entertaining medium to teach with and to learn from. The content of
the portal is entirely in English and is contributed by the schools, thus encouraging the use of the
language throughout the 10 adopted schools.
It also creates a one-stop portal that can help CIMB Foundation to monitor and track the academic
and co-curricular performance of the said schools, as well as their participation and progress in
all other projects, such as English courses for teachers and motivational camps for students and
parents, in line with CIMB’s rewards structure. The schools’ contributions to the dashboard count
towards their total points in the Foundation’s annual competition for best schools awards.
It also features an activities page with CIMB Foundation’s programmes as well as the schools’
co-curricular activities and a gallery page for uploading photos and videos. The launch of the
dashboard marked a major milestone in CIMB Foundation’s commitment to provide access to
quality education in rural schools and to create an environment which encourages excellence. All
students in the 10 rural schools are not only computer literate, but also use the computers regularly,
while students sitting for the UPSR use the computers for online revision to help them prepare for
their exams.
CIMB Foundation also holds an annual PINTAR Gala Night to celebrate the achievements of the
programme’s top students, as well as the teachers and principals. Individual awards are handed
out for academic performance and sports achievements, while schools compete for the coveted

Chartered Accountant
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgment,
including the assessment of risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether
due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to
the Company’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit
procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an
opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the
appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates
made by the Trustees, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a
basis for our audit opinion.
Opinion
In our opinion, the financial statements have been properly drawn up in accordance with Financial
Reporting Standards and the Companies Act, 1965 in Malaysia so as to give a true and fair view
of the financial position of the Company as at 31 December 2010 and of its financial performance
and cash flows for the year then ended.

Notes To The Financial Statements
31 December 2010
Following initial acquisition, intangible assets are measured at cost less any
accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses.
1.
Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortised over the estimated useful live
and assessed for impairment whenever there is an indication that the intangible
assets may be impaired. The amortisation period and the amortisation method
are reviewed at least at each financial year-end. Changes in the expected useful
life or the expected pattern of consumption of future economic benefits embodied
in the asset is accounted for by changing the amortisation period or method, as
appropriate, and is treated as changes in accounting estimates. The amortisation
expense on intangible assets with finite lives is recognised in profit or loss.
Corporate information
The principal activities of the Company are to enhance the education, development of human
capital in nation building which will benefit the Malaysian society and community at large.
There have been no significant changes in the nature of the principal activities during the
financial year.
The Company was incorporated on 5 August 2008 and is a company limited by guarantee,
incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia. The registered office of the Company is located at
Level 33 Tower 2, Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur.
Gains or losses arising from derecognition of an intangible assets are measured as
the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the
asset and are recognised in profit or loss when the asset is derecognised.
The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Trustees in accordance
with a resolution of the Trustees on 25 May 2011.
2.
Intangible assets of the Company comprise the following, and are amortised over
the following useful lives:
Significant accounting policies
2.1
Computer software
Website development
Basis of preparation
The financial statements comply with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and
applicable Financial Reporting Standards (“FRSs”) in Malaysia.
(b)
The financial statements are presented in Ringgit Malaysia (“RM”), which is also the
Company’s functional currency.
Significant accounting estimates and judgments
The preparation of financial statement in accordance with FRSs requires the use of
certain accounting estimates and exercise of judgment. Estimates and judgments are
continuously evaluated and are based on past experience, reasonable expectations of
future events and other factors.
The Trustees are of the opinion, that there are no key assumptions concerning the
future nor other key sources of estimation uncertainty at balance sheet date that have a
significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and
liabilities within the next financial year.
2.3
Summary of significant accounting policies
(a)
Intangible asset
Intangible assets acquired separately are measured initially at cost. The cost
of intangible assets acquired are their fair value as at the date of acquisition.
56
PINTAR Annual Report 2010
Government grant
Government grant is recognised initially at their fair value in the balance sheet
as deferred income where there is reasonable assurance that the grant will be
received and all attaching conditions will be complied with. Grant that compensate
the Company for expenses incurred are recognised as income over the periods
necessary to match the grant on a systematic basis to the costs that it is intended
to compensate. Grant that compensate the Company for the cost of an asset are
recognised as income on a systematic basis over the useful life of the asset.
The financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis.
2.2

(c)
Income tax
Income tax on the surplus or deficit for the year comprises current and deferred
tax. Current tax is the expected amount of income taxes payable in respect of the
taxable surplus for the period and is measured using the tax rates that have been
enacted at the reporting date.
Deferred tax is provided for, using the liability method, on temporary differences
at the reporting date between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their
carrying amounts in the financial statements. In principle, deferred tax liabilities
are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets
are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and
unused tax credits to the extent that it is probable that taxable surplus will be
available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses
and unused tax credits can be utilised.

(e)
Financial assets are recognised in the balance sheet when, and only when,
the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the financial
instrument.
Summary of significant accounting policies (cont’d.)
(c)
Income tax (cont’d.)
When financial assets are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value, plus
directly attributable transaction costs. The Company determines the classification
of its financial assets at initial recognition.
Deferred tax is measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the year
when the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on tax rates that have
been enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date. Deferred tax is
recognised in the profit or loss, except when it arises from a transaction which
is recognised directly in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or
credited directly in equity.
(d)
Financial assets
A financial asset is derecognised where the contractual right to receive cash flows
from the asset has expired. On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety,
the difference between the carrying amount and the sum of the consideration
received and any cumulative gain or loss that had been recognised in other
comprehensive income is recognised in profit or loss.
Impairment of non-financial assets
The Company assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication
that an asset may be impaired. If any such indication exists, or when an annual
impairment assessment for an asset is required, the Company makes an estimate
of the asset’s recoverable amount.
(i) Receivables
Financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted
in an active market are classified as receivables.
An asset’s recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs
to sell and its value in use. For the purpose of assessing impairment, assets are
grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows
(cash-generating units (“CGU”)).
In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows expected to be
generated by the asset are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax
discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of
money and the risks specific to the asset. Where the carrying amount of an asset
exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is written down to its recoverable
amount. Impairment losses recognised in respect of a CGU or groups of CGUs
are allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of the other assets in the unit or
groups of units on a pro-rata basis.
Impairment losses are recognised in profit or loss in the period in which it
arises. An assessment is made at each reporting date as to whether there is
any indication that previously recognised impairment losses may no longer exist
or may have decreased. A previously recognised impairment loss is reversed
only if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the asset’s
recoverable amount since the last impairment loss was recognised. If that
is the case, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to its recoverable
amount. That increase cannot exceed the carrying amount that would have
been determined, net of depreciation, had no impairment loss been recognised
previously. Such reversal is recognised in profit or loss.
Subsequent to initial recognition, receivables are measured at amortised
cost using the effective interest method. Gains and losses are recognised
in profit or loss when the loans and receivables are derecognised or
impaired, and through the amortisation process.
(f)
Impairment of financial assets
(i)
Receivables
To determine whether there is objective evidence that an impairment loss
on financial assets has been incurred, the Company consider factors
such as the probability of insolvency or significant financial difficulties of
the debtor and default or significant delay in payments.
If any such evidence exists, the amount of impairment loss is measured
as the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present
value of estimated future cash flows discounted at the financial asset’s
original effective interest rate. The impairment loss is recognised in profit
or loss.
The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment
loss directly for all financial assets.
If in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases
and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after
the impairment was recognised, the previously recognised impairment

recognised as an expense in the year in which the associated services
are rendered by employees. Short term accumulating compensated
absences such as paid annual leave are recognised when services
are rendered by employees that increase their entitlement to future
compensated absences. Short term non- accumulating compensated
absences such as sick leave are recognised when the absences occur.

does not exceed its amortised cost at the reversal date. The amount of

(g)
The Company participates in the national pension schemes as defined
by the laws of the countries in which it has operations. The Company
make contributions to the Employee Provident Fund in Malaysia, a defined
contribution pension scheme. Contributions to defined contribution pension
scheme are recognised as an expense in the period in which the related
service is performed.
Financial liabilities
Financial liabilities are classified according to the substance of the contractual
arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability.
(k)
Financial liabilities, within the scope of FRS 139 Financial Instruments:
Recognition and Measurement, are recognised in the statement of financial
position when, and only when, the Company becomes a party to the contractual
provisions of the financial instrument.
Revenue recognition
Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits
associated with the transaction will flow to the Company and the amount of the
revenue can be reliably measured. The specific income stream is as follows:
(i)
The Company’s financial liabilities include other payables.
Interest income
Interest income is recognised on accrual basis using the effective interest
method.
Financial liabilities are recognised initially at fair value less directly attributable
transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the
effective interest method. Gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when
the liabilities are derecognised, and through the amortisation process.
(ii)
Proceeds from fund raising events
Proceeds from fund raising events are recognised as revenue upon the
transfer of significant risk and rewards of ownership of the goods to
the customer. Revenue is not recognised for the extent where there are
significant uncertainties regarding recovery of the consideration due,
associated costs or the possible return of goods.
A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is
extinguished.
(h)
Defined contribution plan
