For this year’s Annual Report, we focus on the dreams of the children
that the PINTAR Programme has touched. Every child has a dream,
ambition or wish in life, and what PINTAR does is help them realise
that dream. This cover is an inspired collection of artworks from the
children of PINTAR schools.
All the artwork contained within this annual report was contributed
by the talented children of PINTAR Schools.
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012

An 11-year-old girl from rural SK Hj Hussin Dol, Kedah expresses
delight at being able to visit Kuala Lumpur for the first time when
she is taken to the capital city to participate in the finals of an art
competition. A 10-year-old from Port Dickson discovers a keen
interest in radio deejaying during a visit to KidZania in Kuala
Lumpur.
These are certainly not earth-shattering events in the broad scale
of things, but they are very meaningful, potentially life-changing
experiences for the children described. And such responses
are just what we, at PINTAR Foundation, hope to draw from
underserved school children under our programmes when we
take them out of their normal surroundings and expose them to
new and wondrous experiences, opening their vistas to a world of
almost endless possibilities.
The idea of PINTAR was first mooted by Tan Sri Nor Mohamed
Yakcop, who was then Minister of Finance II. With the support
of 13 government-linked companies, the PINTAR Programme
began in 2006 as a pilot project to provide equitable access to
quality education to all Malaysians, particularly to children in
underserved communities.
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012

We are also encouraged by our growing presence in East
Malaysia, where there are now 10 schools in Sabah and another
10 in Sarawak under the programme, but more can and should
be done. Some of these schools are in remote areas, where the
programme can make a significant difference to the students and
local communities. One of the schools in Sabah, SR Pendidikan
Khas Pekan Tuaran, adopted by Telekom Malaysia, is for visuallyimpaired children, a first for PINTAR. It is truly heartening to see
corporations embrace schools that are not just underserved in
the normal sense of the word, but have additional challenges to
be overcome.
While our corporate members run their own programmes in
their adopted schools, we at the Foundation have introduced
PINTAR National Programmes for these schools. PINTAR
National Programmes are developed, implemented and funded
by the Foundation. We believe it is important for our national
programmes to capture the imagination of students in order to
inspire them and motivate them to derive maximum benefits
from the activities organised. Hence much thought, and in most
instances research and development, goes into crafting our
programmes, which have to date been very successful.
Its objective, most tangibly, is to develop our human capital in
line with the Government’s aim of transforming Malaysia into
a high-income nation. More than academic achievements, the
PINTAR Programme seeks to develop future generations that are
as creative as they are knowledgeable, with a high sense of social
responsibility and moral integrity through holistic education.
This concept is encapsulated in the programme’s name itself,
‘PINTAR’ standing for Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent
and Advocating Responsibility. These three key tenets have been
guiding the efforts of the Foundation ever since it was established
in 2008. And it gives me pleasure to share that we have achieved
much towards this end.
In 2012, we introduced two new national programmes – the
PINTAR Go Green School Programme, which was developed in
collaboration with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia; and the
PINTAR D’Arts Literacy Programme. Over the course of the year,
a total of 2,000 students and 120 teachers from 50 schools
nationwide participated in the environmental programme, which
aims at instilling a love of nature among our young generation
and thus safeguard the country’s sustainable development. The
art programme, meanwhile, brought out the artistic creativity in
1,226 students while also involving 104 teachers from 55 primary
and seven secondary schools.
Driven by the belief that the greatest good of the programme
will come from the greatest number of participating schools
and sponsoring corporations, we have been marketing PINTAR
more aggressively in recent years, with positive results. From 44
schools supported by 13 GLCs in 2006, the programme at 31 Dec
2012 involves 309 schools and 31 corporations including 15 nonGLCs. The Foundation was instrumental in bringing in non-GLCs
and we’ve been heartened by their response to date.
In our efforts to continue to provide some support to schools
which have graduated from PINTAR Programme, the Foundation
launched the PINTAR Alumni Programme. This programme
provides a platform for the schools to network and share
knowledge as well as best practices and experiences with each
other. In July 2012, PINTAR collaborated with Yayasan AMIR and
Yayasan Khazanah to organise an education conference for our
alumni schools themed “Education Transformation Through
Excellent Leadership”, which brought together 120 teachers from
all over the country who are driven to make a difference. Events
such as this will provide continuous learning as well as help to
maintain high motivation levels among the school leadership,
which in turn will positively impact the learning environment and
the students.
It gives me great pleasure to share that, once again, our PINTAR
students performed very well in key national examinations as
compared to the national averages. For the year 2012, 71.71%
of PINTAR students passed the UPSR compared to the national
average of 56.94%, while the pass rate for the PMR was 68.9%
among PINTAR students, on par with the national average,
and 1.82% higher than in 2011. Meanwhile, 90.93% of PINTAR
students obtained the SPM certificate in 2012, indicating an
increase of 0.33% compared to 2011.
We have also seen an improvement in standards of literacy and
numeracy in our primary schools, with a 13.10% average increase
for numeracy and 11.5% average increase for literacy in 2012.
Over and above these encouraging results, the PINTAR schools
have reported an increase in students’ attendance rates, from
an average of 90% prior to the programme to 97.9% following
its commencement. Along with improved attendance, the
schools have also reported positive behavioural changes in the
students, who have gained in confidence and contribute more
in class as well as during activities. Self-confidence and selfesteem are critical soft skills in today’s competitive world, as is
the belief of being in charge of one’s destiny. To stress upon our
young students that their lives lie largely in their own hands,
we published and launched a book, Beating the Odds, featuring
inspirational stories of Malaysians – including those of PINTAR
students – who have made a success of their lives despite the
odds. Our hope is that these stories will motivate the children
to take affirmative action and strive for excellence in all their
endeavours.
Our national programmes for the year cost a total of RM2.08
million, which was funded mostly by the government grant
received by the Foundation in 2009, the Foundation also raised
funds from campaigns such as “Bag-to-School”, introduced
in October 2012. Under this campaign, which is ongoing untill
end of 2013, members either contribute backpacks directly
to students from our PINTAR schools, or donate funds for the
purchase of backpacks.
In terms of sponsorship, I would like to take this opportunity to
thank UEM Group, who joined us only in March 2012 but has
already made a huge mark in PINTAR by sponsoring an extensive
English Literacy Programme (ELP) involving 50 PINTAR schools in
nine states. With this sponsorship, UEM Group has acquired the
distinction of becoming the first corporate sponsor of PINTAR
Foundation’s programme.
Through the years, the PINTAR Programme has remained relevant
to the country’s education agenda. It is aligned with five of 11
Shifts outlined in the Malaysia Education Development Plan 2013
to 2017 (National Education Blueprint), launched in 2012, whose
mission is to transform the education system in Malaysia. The
adoption of schools by corporations is a perfect example of the
kind of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) envisaged by Shift No. 9.
For the year 2012, our corporate members reported spending
more than RM5.9 million on their adopted schools. More than
the financial aid, it is heartening to see CEOs of large organisations
and their staff go to the ground to take part in activities in the
schools. Their presence makes the events even more meaningful
for the children, who feel privileged to be given the attention of
men and women of distinction. Indeed, I strongly urge all our
member companies and their staff to join us in the events and
activities organised with our schools, as the experience will
enable them to get a better feel of what it is that we do, and
how our programmes impact the lives of the children and their
communities.
I feel privileged to be involved in a programme that has such scope
and significance to national development, and would like to take
this opportunity to thank all our stakeholders for supporting this
cause. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the Putrajaya
Committee on GLC High Performance, Khazanah Nasional Berhad,
the Ministry of Education and all State Education Departments
for their support of the programme. I would also like to thank
all the schools – and the head masters/mistresses, teachers
and students we have worked with – for their cooperation and
collaboration; our member and partner corporations for their
time, effort and financial commitments; and our programme
partners who have contributed their expertise in helping us
implement our national programmes.
Here I would like to urge all corporations that desire to engage
with their communities as part of their Corporate Responsibility
to emulate the commitment of PINTAR’s existing members and
partners, and to consider joining the PINTAR Programme or to
sponsor our PINTAR National Programmes. It is only through the
collective effort by all that we will be able to achieve the goal
of developing top-class human capital to meet our country’s
economic needs.
At the Foundation, we make it our mission to keep growing
the programme to ensure it remains relevant to the needs of
our schools while offering ample opportunity for our corporate
members to contribute towards national educational excellence.
I would like to share that plans for PINTAR TV are progressing well
while a number of other new programmes are in the pipeline,
all of which have been designed to have far-reaching positive
impact.
I would also like to express my heartfelt appreciation to my fellow
Board of Trustees for their guidance and wisdom, as well as all
the staff at PINTAR Foundation, for their unrelenting hard work
and dedication. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would also
like to acknowledge the contributions of our former colleague,
Datuk Denison Jayasooria who resigned from the Board on 4
April 2013. We thank him for his invaluable contribution and wish
him the very best in his future endeavours.
But most of all, I would like to say a special thank you to all our
students, who have let us come into their lives and who, without
even knowing it, have enriched us with their openness, trust
and innocent joy for life. I hope you make the most of all the
opportunities we present to you and continue to nurture your
wonderful talents. Never stop learning, never stop growing and
always keep reaching for the stars no matter how far they seem,
because there is no limit to what you can achieve.
On behalf of the Board, I thank you all once again and with great
pleasure, present to you, PINTAR Foundation’s Annual Report
2012.
Thank you.

Operations Review
The PINTAR Programme was launched in December 2006 and the PINTAR Foundation was formed in 2008 with the vision to inspire the young generation. Through the years, the
Foundation has stayed true to its vision and mission and has matured as an organisation serving the needs of its stakeholders, especially its beneficiaries. 2012 was no exception as
efforts were intensified in all areas, but especially in the delivery of its National Programmes, as the Foundation continued to focus on its seven main thrusts.
Financial Performance
The year 2012 saw a substantial increase in the expenditure
of the Foundation due to the increase in number of National
Programmes implemented and new development projects
that were undertaken.
The total expenditure incurred in 2012 was RM4,609,898
representing an increase of 28.3% from the expenditure
of 2011. Of this, 46.9% amounting to RM2,161,060,
was attributed to administrative costs. However, the
Foundation received additional income through fundraising,
sponsorships and interest income totalling RM1,285,510.
An amount of RM2,080,502 representing 45.1% of the total
expenditure was spent on the implementation of PINTAR
National Programmes such as PINTAR BattleBot Challenge,
PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit, PINTAR D’Arts Literacy, PINTAR
Go Green and Leadership Programme for PINTAR School
Leaders as well as PINTAR Alumni Programme.
numerous activities which included the CEOs’ Dinner, the
PINTAR Roundtable, Media Visits, the Annual General
Meeting and production of the inspirational book ‘Beating
the Odds’.
PINTAR Foundation has also spent a total of RM368,336
(8% of total expenditure) on marketing and on initiatives to
build rapport and strengthen its relationships with various
stakeholders. The expenditures were utilised to execute

PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012

Year 2012 has indeed been an eventful year not only for
PINTAR Foundation but for its members as well, with
new schools being adopted and numerous programmes
executed throughout the year. In 2012, 81 new schools
were adopted by various corporates, translating into a
35% increase (from 228 schools in 2011 to 309 in 2012),
largely due to UEM Group’s adoption of 50 schools for its
English Literacy Programme. This augurs well for the PINTAR
Programme as more schools and students will have access
to the intervention programmes and benefit from them.
In total, PINTAR Foundation implemented five national
programmes in 2012, reaching a total of 62,006 students and
1,063 teachers nationwide while its members and partners,
collectively implemented no less than 300 programmes
between them, and contributed more than RM5.9 million
to their respective PINTAR programmes in schools, while
involving 747 of their staff as volunteers.
This collective effort by the Foundation and its members
and partners, acting in unison with the same goal/
objective is beginning to bear fruit as the positive outcomes
envisioned become reality. The overall impact of the
PINTAR Programme in 2012, measured through the results
of the 2012 UPSR, PMR and SPM exams sat by our PINTAR
students have shown positive and encouraging progress
and accomplishments. The percentage of PINTAR students
who passed the Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR)
was 71.71% compared to the national passing average of
56.94%, while in the Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR)
examinations, the percentage of PINTAR students who
passed PMR was 68.9%, an increase of 1.82% compared to
the previous year. Meanwhile, 90.93% of PINTAR students
obtained the SPM certificate in 2012, 0.33 percentage points
more than in 2011. On top of that, the number of students
getting straight A’s in their UPSR results saw further increase
from 10.15% in 2011 to 10.56% in 2012, and is 1.62% higher
than the national average. The attendance rate of PINTAR
students has also shown an average increase of 7.86%
across PINTAR schools nationwide.
Apart from these, positive feedback has been received
through the annual Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey
conducted by the Foundation, with more than 90% of
beneficiaries surveyed being satisfied with the PINTAR
Programme.
National Programmes
PINTAR National Programmes continue to be implemented under the respective key tenets which aim to equip students from PINTAR schools with the necessary skills to become an
all-rounder by developing leadership, communication, creative and technical skills as well as inculcate good moral values.
Advocating Responsibility
Launched in 2010, the PINTAR BattleBot Challenge (PBBC), a programme aimed at
enhancing students’ creativity as well as to promote critical thinking, came to a close
with its finale in 2012. In its final year, PBBC continued to receive overwhelming response
from students and teachers alike, and garnered the participation of 120 schools, 3,190
students and 232 teachers across all PINTAR schools nationwide.
The PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU) with the theme “Advocating Responsibility”
launched in 2011 continued on its visits to schools to complete the cycle in 2012. The
PMLU aims to promote and encourage students in PINTAR schools to become informed and
responsible citizens. It is a mobile unit used to promote learning in school children through
exciting stimuli and bringing knowledge in a fun and lively way.
The National Final round and closing ceremony was held at Legoland Malaysia in Iskandar
Malaysia where a total of 64 students and 50 teachers participated in the competition.
SK Bukit Cheding, Selangor emerged as champion of the 2012 PINTAR BattleBot Challenge
with SK Paka III, Terengganu as first runner up.
In 2012, the PMLU visited 73 schools where a total of 55,590 students and 487 teachers
participated in the programme. The PMLU also visited a total of 40 homes throughout
Peninsular Malaysia during the school holidays. A total of 1,230 children, aged between 4 to
17 years old and 80 teachers/guardians benefited from the programme.
Nurturing Talent
Another programme under the ‘Advocating Responsibility’ tenet is the PINTAR Go Green
School Programme which aims to develop a generation that will adopt responsible lifestyles
and attitudes towards the conservation of our environment by inculcating a healthy
respect for our environment from a young age. The programme fosters the 3R concept
(recycle, reuse and reduce) and environmental stewardship in students as part of PINTAR
Foundation’s initiative to promote behavioural change in the attitude of individuals towards
the environment.
D’Arts Literacy Programme is intended to nurture talent in art amongst PINTAR students
in schools through the book called, ‘Malaysian Art Book for Children’ (MABC). Among
the objectives of the programme include the exploration of art as another medium
which could contribute to the development of both critical and creative mind as well as
providing the opportunity for rural school children to have access to the creative arts of
our own local masters.
PINTAR D’Arts Literacy Programme included teachers’ workshops throughout the country
and culminated in the National Level Competition for students on 31 October 2012 at
National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur with participation of 55 primary schools and
7 secondary schools nationwide.
In partnership with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, the programme draws school teachers
and students from 50 primary schools from across the country in workshops that reinforce
the green message through indoor and outdoor activities as well as theory and practical
exercises.

Promoting Intelligence
Alumni Programme
PINTAR Foundation conducted its first ever Education Conference titled ‘Education
Transformation through Excellent Leadership’ for school leaders from its graduated
schools which was held from 13 to 15 July 2012 in Kuala Lumpur. The three-day Education
Conference which was officially launched by Tan Sri Abd Ghafar bin Mahmud, Director
General of Education Malaysia was jointly organised by Yayasan AMIR, PINTAR Foundation
and Yayasan Khazanah. Featuring a collaborative approach, conference participants engaged
in the sharing of best practices found in Yayasan AMIR Trust Schools and PINTAR Schools.
The Education Conference was also held to assist the PINTAR alumni schools to reach a
higher level through excellent leadership and administration in line with the Education
National Key Result Area (NKRA) based on four tracks, namely - Developing High Quality
Leadership and Management; Improving the Quality of Teaching and Learning; Maximising
Students’ Achievement and Potential and Strengthening the Engagement of Parents,
Community and other Stakeholders.
Special Project
English Literacy Programme Sponsored
by UEM Group Berhad
The ‘English Literacy Programme Sponsored by UEM Group Berhad’ (ELP), is designed
to improve teachers’ ability to teach English in a manner that will help enhance the way
students learn the language and ultimately to be able to speak and write in English.
Launched on 28 March 2012, the programme focuses on strengthening English teaching
and learning through capacity building, using a variety of methods which include: quality
delivery structures; supportive intervention; student activities and community involvement.

analysis and establishment of proposed KPIs for the programme; training sessions for
teachers on ‘Most Significant Change, ‘Class Management and Lessons Planning’ - a face
to face training session to encourage students’ participation in classroom learning through
cooperation and team work; and training of UEM’s volunteers on ‘Learn English Family
Programme’ to actively engage with parents in promoting literacy at an early age among
the students.
Employee Development
50 newly adopted schools by UEM Group Berhad (UEM) started on this three-year
programme in April 2012. A total of 100 primary school English teachers from schools in
nine states - Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Melaka
and Johor are involved.
The Foundation’s ability to sustain its growth and manage the PINTAR Programme to the
expectations of its stakeholders is very much dependent on the commitment and capabilities
of its employees who form the backbone of the organisation.
The Programme is managed, coordinated and monitored by PINTAR Foundation. The British
Council (BC), based on its expertise in managing and delivering educational projects in
diverse communities, has been appointed as Programme Partner to design and deliver this
three-year programme.
Recognising that and cognisant that good talent is scarce, the Foundation strives to attract
as well as retain good talent. In addition, efforts are focussed on ensuring the continuous
professional development of staff and their competencies are enhanced via targeted
training.
In 2012, PINTAR Foundation has successfully conducted and completed the milestones of
the first phase of the project which include briefing sessions to all SED, PPD, Headmasters
of ELP schools and ELP teachers involved; assessment and development of schools’ needs
PINTAR Foundation has 17 staff. In 2012, all staff were involved in a Strategic Planning
session to brainstorm and agree on the corporate strategy of the organisation, moving
forward. Employees also underwent a total of six training programmes with each employee
receiving on average of 16 hours of training.
Moving Forward
The PINTAR Alumni programme has taken off and the ELP is well on its way to meet the
project milestones. A new theme, ‘Nurturing Talent’ will be developed for the design of
the new PMLU targeted to be launched in April 2013 and the development of new national
programmes are underway.
Fundraisers that started in 2012, like the ‘Bag-To-School’ campaign and the inspirational book
for children, titled “Beating the Odds” had a fairly good start and will see continual on-going
marketing effort throughout 2013. High on the agenda is grant applications to ensure the
Foundation secures substantial funds to continue with its enriching National Programmes
that complement the programmes of its members and partners. Already several new
programmes are in the pipeline for 2013 and beyond and the Foundation looks forward to
bringing them to fruition.
As PINTAR proceeds to move forward on its upward momentum, the organisation recognises
that effective stakeholder engagement is the key to the success of the PINTAR Programme.
Besides engaging with its key stakeholders – PINTAR members and stakeholders of the school
ecosystem, PINTAR Foundation will continue to engage the Ministry of Education and SED
closely to understand and meet the needs of the country.
In 2012, the number of new PINTAR schools increased substantially, all thanks to existing
members’ adoption of new schools following the ‘graduation’ of schools adopted by them
earlier; and the UEM Group’s sponsorship which brought in 50 new schools. The Foundation
is very much aware of the need to enlist more members to ensure the healthy growth of
new schools. More marketing efforts will be put in place to reach out to potential Corporates
to ensure that membership and thus the number of adopted schools continues to grow
healthily.
At the same time, the Foundation is fully aware that as the organisation and its programmes
grow, a key challenge is sustainable funding to keep up with its operations. The quest to
ensure sustainable funding is even more critical from 2013 as the initial grant from the
Government depletes and new projects which require substantial funding are in the
development pipeline.
All in all, the Foundation feels that it has been able to end the year on a high note and aims to
achieve even more in the years ahead. Moving forward, the Foundation hopes to work and
collaborate with more Corporates and its existing stakeholders, and together endeavour to
maximise the potential of children in underserved communities to build the nation’s human
capital through holistic education.

National Programmes
PINTAR National Programmes are national-scale programmes designed, implemented,
managed and monitored by PINTAR Foundation. Funded by the Foundation, these
programmes are executed across PINTAR schools nationwide and infused with varying
themes based on the three key tenets of ‘Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent and
Advocating Responsibility’. PINTAR National Programmes adopt a fun and practical
approach to learning which complement the academic curriculum and promote
education through creative, innovative and mentally stimulating methods to help
students discover their talents, develop their leadership and communication skills,
creativity as well as to instil good moral values.

Battle marked the finale and close of
the programme as the Foundation
moves on to other programmes.
PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU) is a specially designed mobile learning unit
equipped with activities and information based on specific themes. It is used as a tool to
reach out to PINTAR students by bringing knowledge to them in a learning environment
that is fun and exciting as well as being an alternative approach to conventional
classroom learning.

PINTAR D’Arts Literacy Programme
PINTAR Alumni Programme
PINTAR D’Arts Literacy Programme is an initiative under the “Nurturing Talent”
tenet which aims to nurture the creative side of the younger generation by
developing both the critical and creative mind. Under this Programme, teachers
attend Art Workshops facilitated by several artists featured in the book ‘Malaysian
Art Book for Children’ (MABC) and bring back the newly acquired skills to train
their students. The book is published by Khazanah Nasional Berhad through its
Khazanah Heritage & Art Initiative and is designed to encourage creativity and
critical thinking in children.
PINTAR Alumni School Programme is an initiative led by PINTAR Foundation with the
purpose of providing continued support to schools which have completed the three-year
adoption period. PINTAR Alumni schools will have access to selected PINTAR national
programmes and engagements and will enable the Foundation to continue to monitor
their progress.
PINTAR D’Arts Literacy Programme also aims at providing the opportunity for rural
school children to have access to the creative arts of our own local masters. As part
of the programme, an art competition was organised amongst PINTAR schools,
culminating in a National Level Competition for students held on 31 October 2012

Stakeholder Engagement
The success of the PINTAR programme is dependent on the continuing commitment and
participation by its members and partners. The Foundation thus set its priority to build trust,
understand the issues, needs and concerns of all its stakeholders and sought opportunities to
provide relevant platforms for a clear two-way communication between the Foundation and all
its stakeholders.
In 2012, the Foundation continued with its focus on building and strengthening its relationships
with its key stakeholders to ensure their full commitment towards the success of PINTAR
Programme. These stakeholders were identified as companies who adopt schools and run
programmes at their respective schools, the main beneficiaries - students and teachers, and also
the governing body - Ministry of Education.

PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
The 18th Roundtable was held seven months later, on 25 September at KidZania, Kuala
Lumpur. At this session, besides the progress reporting and exchange of ideas, members
were taken on a tour of KidZania where they were given first-hand experience of KidZania’s
activities for their consideration of bringing their PINTAR school children for a visit. For PINTAR
schools, KidZania has agreed to work out a special package as part of their CSR programme.
Ministry of Education
The Ministry is without a doubt, another key stakeholder of the Foundation. In 2012, the
Foundation was able to provide its annual update to the Director of School Management Division.
In addition, the Foundation briefed all State Education Department(SED) directors at the Ministry’s
Pre-Council Meeting of SED Directors held on 19 September 2012 in Labuan on the progress of the
PINTAR programme and its members’ activities. It was also an opportunity to raise any issues that
needed the Ministry’s intervention.
SED Roadshow
Part of the Foundation’s strategic engagement plan was to visit all State Education Departments
in Malaysia to ensure that it addresses any issues or concerns faced by the various departments.
In addition, the Foundation wanted to ensure that at state level, the officers have the same
understanding of the PINTAR programme, thus facilitating future programme engagements.
In 2012, the Foundation visited a total of nine State Education Departments which are Perlis,
Johor, Selangor, Pahang, Terengganu, Melaka, Perak, Sabah and Sarawak. From these visits, the
Foundation was succeeded in fostering closer ties with various departments and able to address
any issues that were raised.
Stakeholder Satisfaction
In 2012, the Foundation conducted a satisfaction survey on its three key stakeholder groups which
are members, teachers and students. The purpose of the survey was to get feedback on the role
and value of PINTAR to its members; and the quality and benefits of PINTAR Programme and
PINTAR National Programmes to students and teachers. The results were very encouraging and
helpful in guiding the Foundation to improve itself further.
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012

PINTAR scored a satisfaction rate of about 91% with members having a positive perception of
the Foundation and rated it as excellent in providing them support. Members also acknowledged
PINTAR National Programmes as being good to excellent.
The satisfaction rate among the teachers’ group was more than 91%. Teachers find that the
PINTAR Programme provides good activities that meet with the schools’ requirements. Teachers
also agreed that the adopting companies (PINTAR members) have good knowledge about their
school’s needs and that programmes conducted are relevant to their schools.
The satisfaction rate among students is equally high, with students agreeing that the PINTAR
Programme provides quality programmes. They are especially excited with the fun way the
knowledge is delivered via the PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit where the students are exposed to
the real-life learning experience. The yearly PINTAR BattleBot Challenge using LEGO bricks is also
a great hit among the students.
Building Brand Equity
Brand Equity is one of three main thrusts of PINTAR’s strategic plan. PINTAR Foundation
believes that a strong and trusted brand is an enabler that will draw the interest and
participation of potential corporates and gain the trust of its stakeholders. Managing brand
perceptions is thus a very important component in the management of the Foundation.
The PINTAR brand is defined by PINTAR’s stakeholders’ experience of the brand at various
touch points. In 2012, PINTAR embarked on a number of initiatives to enhance its brand
awareness and develop positive public brand perceptions towards PINTAR.
Media Engagement
At the same time, PINTAR invited members of the media to cover its main events/activities
related mostly to its National Programmes. The initiatives taken have proven effective, as
the organisation was able to garner media coverage for its events in the major local dailies
– Berita Harian, Harian Metro, Utusan Malaysia, The Star and New Straits Times, achieving
a Media Value Index (MVI) of more than RM1 million in 2012.
29
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
Effective media engagement is a key strategy employed to help increase public awareness
of PINTAR and its programmes. This is achieved via a two-prong approach – media
coverage of PINTAR’s events and activities; and media visits. Media visits aim to build
rapport with the Editors from the local media. PINTAR Foundation organised media visits
to three key media organisations in 2012 to introduce the media to PINTAR Foundation
and its members and the activities carried out as well as to forge rapport and garner
positive editorial publicity whilst exploring potential strategic collaborations with media
partners. During the visits, editors were given insights on the background of PINTAR
Foundation, its National Programmes and PINTAR Members’ activities. The PINTAR team
was joined by PINTAR Members and a PINTAR Board of Trustee member to Balai Berita,
Utusan Malaysia and The Star.

Bank Islam continues to support the initiatives of PINTAR Foundation which aims to
promote academic and non-academic excellence especially among the underserved
students. Since 2008, the Bank has adopted 13 schools nationwide, where more than
12,000 students benefited. Last year, the Bank adopted a further five schools, which
include:
•
•
•
•
•
SK Kuala Kupang, Kupang, Kedah
SK Pasir Puteh (M), Pasir Puteh, Kelantan
SK Sg Ranggam, Kampung Gajah, Perak
SK Sg Jejawi, Teluk Intan, Perak
SMK Gombak Setia, Selangor
Under the PINTAR Programme, Bank Islam chose to concentrate its efforts on
‘Sustainability Studies’ and ‘English Communication Workshop’. The subject matters
were chosen as the Bank has identified environmental initiatives as one of the essential
subjects that need to be taught to children at a young age. Additionally, the Bank has
also made an observation in which students of the adopted schools are found to be
consistently weak in the English subject.

Food Garden Workshop
The Bank’s ‘Sustainability Studies’ programme includes the implementation of the
‘School Garden Project’, which has impacted 250 selected students. The programme
involved students strengthening and improving their writing, speech and thinking skills
by using plants as a learning medium. Participating students were required to perform
assessment on the impact of different human activities on plants. They were then asked
to list personal actions in which they can execute in order to minimise harmful effects
and enhance good effects which lead to sustainable living. At the end of the programme,
students were given their own set of plants in which they would have to plant and look
after at the Food Garden in their school. The students will need to apply the acquired
knowledge in not only looking after those plants but also in their daily routines.
English Communication Workshop
Bank Islam collaborated with International Islamic University (IIUM) for this programme,
in which foreign IIUM students were invited to become mentors for participants.
Emphasising on spoken language, the programme required participants to communicate
by listening and speaking. This encouraged children to participate and become actively
involved in each module.
At the end of the course, students had displayed the following skills:
• Increased fluency in their oral presentation
• Competently able to use suitable and appropriate communication techniques
• Developed confidence in delivering an effective public presentation
Bank Islam’s PINTAR programmes were not limited to the above. The Bank has also
conducted other activities, which include motivational workshops, career talks,
seminars, visitations, tazkirah, solat hajat, tuition for English, Maths and Science
subjects, UPSR clinics and workshops, additional classes, answering question
techniques, donation of study/learning materials, Teachers’ Workshop, Majlis Titipan
Ilmu and others. These programmes have impacted 4,300 schoolchildren (Year 1 to
Secondary 5).

The schools also cumulatively increased their English National Average Grade to 3.31
compared to 3.42 the previous year (a lower value indicates better performance).
A ceremony was held by CIMB Foundation to reward the students for their
achievements. Each of the students who scored 5As was awarded RM500 and also
received an Adidas school bag, tumbler and various other gifts. Additionally, the
students were awarded RM1,000 if they secure a place in a boarding school. During
the ceremony, Sekolah Seri Perlis was proclaimed as the best school. They have
improved tremendously since CIMB Foundation’s engagement. Their overall pass
rate increased from 58% the year before to 78%. They also increased their English
pass rate from 58% the year before to 90%. The most significant achievement was
the number of students scoring 5As for the UPSR. 11 Sekolah Seri Perlis students
scored 5As compared to only one the year before.

PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
PINTAR is a programme introduced by Khazanah Nasional Berhad to provide access to
quality education for rural school children. The Group’s participation in PINTAR dates
back to 2007 when they began by adopting two schools in Penang. The following
year, the number rose to 10 schools across Malaysia. At the end of 2012, after more
than 3 years of funding, those schools were graduated. In 2012, CIMB Foundation
re-examined the programme and determined that it could be more effective if
the schools were concentrated within the same area. In that year, they chose five
primary schools in Perlis to join their PINTAR programme for the next three years.
The Foundation kicked off the programme by creating a competitive environment
which encouraged academic excellence through rewards and incentives. Two mentor
schools were introduced to help them achieve the targeted results. In 2012, there
was an increase in the overall pass rate in the five schools with a 66% increase in
students obtaining ‘A’ for English in UPSR.

exam questions to each of their PINTAR schools. This has helped students tremendously, as
evidenced by their UPSR results.
TNB started sponsoring New Straits Times Newspaper in Education (NIE) for its schools since
2007 to instill an interest in learning English amongst students. In addition, workshops for
teachers helped ensure the sustainability of the programme.

and English workshops for the school teachers and administration of its six
PINTAR adopted schools. The programme is aimed at imparting positive
thinking and mindset. This includes building attitudes, values, and personal
effectiveness of the participants to achieve higher performance and

to Beyond Borders’ plans for the year. The workshop also
offered assistance to increase knowledge and enhance the
livelihood and sustainability of the projects.
At the height of Beyond Borders 2012 programme, an award
ceremony was held at Pan Pacific Hotel KLIA from 19 to 21
November 2012 to recognise all the efforts, commitment
and support given by the teachers, parents and students
involved in the programme. The ceremony that was held to
commemorate and honour all adopted schools marked the
closing of the 2nd phase of the 3 years adoption period. It
was also a platform to showcase four different competitive
programmes that served as the pillars for Beyond Borders,
namely Golden Pen Award: Essay Writing Competition,

Green Interschool Project Competition and ‘Act it Up’
Interschool Drama Competition.
English Creative Writing Workshop
Other Beyond Borders programmes include the Academic
Enhancement programme on English, Mathematics
and Science subjects for Year 6 students, ‘Crossing the
Border’ — a motivational talk for Year 6 students to share
some tips and experience in terms of academic, social
and emotional aspects before they embark to secondary
school, and the Beyond Borders Pen Pal Programme which
encourages English creative writing among the students
as well as relationship building where the students
interact with the programme’s volunteers. Through these
programmes, encouraging progress of the students’
academic achievements were seen year to year.
This two-hour English workshop for Year 6 students
provided a supportive environment towards creative
writing among the students. The workshop was conducted
with the aim of improving grammatical proficiency in
theme-based topics identified in the Ministry of Education
Curriculum Specifications for Year 6 English Language.
There were a total of 5 modules created by University
Malaya Languages and Linguistic faculty which were
taught by the volunteers from Malaysia Airports to give
the students better understanding of the subject.
The Beyond Borders programme also provided an avenue
for Malaysia Airports’ staff to volunteer. A total of 110
volunteers had participated and contributed a total of
1,772 volunteering hours for the year 2012.
Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) continues to champion
education for the less fortunate through the MRCB PINTAR programme. An

motivation from the Government to encourage the use of English in learning,
the newspaper sponsorship has become a useful tool in improving students’
English language skills. The objective of the programme is to improve academic
performance and provide better study experience.

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), an Ordinary Member of PINTAR Foundation has
integrated PINTAR programme and the application of PINTAR Core Modules to all schools
under its school adoption programme. The involvement of surrounding communities in
the PINTAR programmes organised by TM has also strengthened the role of the school
as the centre of community development, giving opportunities and reaching out to
touch more lives – 17,806 of them to be exact, to date.
A ‘WiFi-ed’ School and the First Special Needs School
Joining the Pintar Network
In 2012, TM launched two new PINTAR schools, both of them bringing fresh perspectives
in TM’s PINTAR programme.
SMK Chenderiang, situated in Temoh, Perak, is an example of a school in need of help
to improve its academic achievements despite its above-average infrastructure. With
about 80% of the students receiving free netbooks under the 1Malaysia Netbook
programme – which means most of them come from low income families – TM took
the opportunity to offer a special privilege for the school to leverage on the available
netbooks by providing a WiFi-ed environment, enabling the teachers and students to
access the Internet within the schools’ compound. The school was officially launched as
TM’s PINTAR School by Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, Perak State Exco on 31 March 2012.

TM also made its own mark by adopting the first PINTAR school for the visually-impaired,
namely SR Pendidikan Khas Pekan Tuaran in Sabah. Catering to students aged 5 to 14
years old, the school provided not only the normal syllabus being taught at the normal
schools, but also an extra subject on Mobility to help the children learn to manage
themselves with minimal support from others. The school was officiated as TM’s PINTAR
school by Datuk Hajah Azizah Datuk Seri Panglima Hj Mohd Dun, Minister of Community
Development & Consumer Affairs Sabah on 9 April 2012.
Graduated Schools in Sibu & Seremban
Three years have passed swiftly for three of TM’s adopted schools, namely SMK Pakan,
SR Agama Repah and SK Teriang as the PINTAR programme came to an end for these
schools. Two separate graduation ceremony were organised – one at RH Hotel, Sibu for
SMK Pakan on 5 May 2012 and another one was a combined event for the other two
schools at Allson Klana Resort, Seremban on 20 October 2012.
Safety & Motivation for TM’s PINTAR Schools
In promoting safety amongst children, TM has taken a proactive step to inculcate
awareness on safety for the school children of its adopted schools under the PINTAR
programme.
Program Keselamatan & Motivasi Sekolah PINTAR TM 2012 was conducted at two TM
PINTAR Schools, namely SMK Chenderiang, Temoh, Perak on 15 September 2012 and SK
Tembak, Kuala Ketil, Kedah on 6 October 2012. With the attendance of more than 300
students and parents for each location, TM brought in three different personalities to

The programmes organised by UEM Land are based on PINTAR’s key tenets which
include the Academic Excellence Programme, Library Enhancement Programme, Health
Talk, National Day Campaign, English Programme, Green School project, Road Safety
Programme and Motivational Camp.
In 2012, UEM Land continued with its programmes to help students achieve better
academic results as well as developing them in a holistic manner.
PINTAR Academic Excellence Programmes
To achieve its goal of helping students to achieve better academic results, DIDIK
workshops/seminars in collaboration with Berita Harian were organised for UPSR, PMR
and SPM students of its PINTAR schools. UEM Land also organised a motivational camp
for its Secondary 2 and Secondary 4 PINTAR students to help them identify and unleash
their potential, to motivate them to stay focused and most importantly to help them
realise the importance of education for their future. Other programmes included the
NiE workshop in collaboration with The Star, where students learnt new approaches
to learning English in class. Besides training students, the English programme is made
sustainable through the English Teachers’ Training with the assistance of British Council.
To date, the programme which was successfully kicked off in 2010 has benefited more
than 50 teachers from UEM Land’s 17 PINTAR Schools around Gelang Patah district.
UEM Land’s programmes have yielded positive outcomes as the academic achievements
of the schools have improved year on year. Due recognition is given to students through
the PINTAR High Achievers Award for top performing students in UPSR, PMR and SPM.
Advocating Responsibility Programmes
Through UEM Land’s Road Safety Programme, these young children learned skills and
practical safety prevention measures to enable them to identify traffic hazards and help
them to be more conscious about road safety.
In 2012 as well, a new programme on Hygiene was introduced to 150 students,
addressing several basic hygiene skills and practices.
School Library Enhancement Programme
In this programme, one PINTAR school will be selected every year to receive UEM Land’s
financial support and assistance in acquiring reading materials and upgrading library
facilities for students’ utilisation. In 2012, SK Nusantara, which has more than 800
school-age going children from the surrounding areas with limited library facilities was
selected to be the pilot school for this project. UEM Land sponsored and contributed
reading materials consisting of mostly children’s Malay and English story books, and
library equipment such as book trolleys, chairs, carpet, wallpaper and refurbishment
works worth more than RM40,000.

I have participated in PBBC and
PMLU before. It’s really a lot of
fun! I would like to join it again. My
teacher always encourages me to
study hard to fulfil my ambition of
becoming a Bahasa Melayu teacher
so that I can help my family one day.
Yap Lee Fung
Student-10 years old, SK(A)
Bukit Cheding, Selangor
One significant change I see in
students is that they are no longer
afraid to ask the teacher questions
during class. This increases their
interest to learn. I found that
students will be more focused
every time they are praised for an
achievement. For me, the constant
engagement with my students has
translated into better exam results
and extra-curricular success.
I like PMLU so much. It is easy
to understand through practical,
hands-on activity with my friends.
Thank you PINTAR!

PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
The PINTAR Programme made a
large impact on our school, as can be
seen from the excellent academic and
co-curricular performance year after
year. This has helped us gain the respect
of other schools in Hulu Terengganu.
The programme has also improved the
confidence level among teachers in
handling various programmes in school.
The support from PINTAR especially,
TNB, enabled our school to plan many
activities to improve our performance,
subsequently achieving recognition as
Cluster School Excellent Phase 7. The
support has also helped this school
to maintain its excellent UPSR results.
I hope to keep up with the progress
made.

The help given by UMW has
been beneficial to the school
especially in terms of academic
performance among pupils. Through
the programmes implemented, the
school’s academic performance has
improved from year to year. Another
significant change is in students’
behaviour where they are no longer
shy to face people outside their
community. The greatest achievement
is when our school became the
Champion in the PINTAR BattleBot
Competition 2012 at the national
level. Other schools now recognise us
because of this achievement.

The PINTAR programmes
have helped us to buy extra
English exercise books for our
students. Also, through the
PINTAR programme, we were
able to conduct motivation
programmes for our students
and parents. I see that PINTAR
brings positive impact to our
students. Students have gained
more knowledge as they are
exposed to more educational
activities. Awesome PINTAR!

PINTAR Go Green is a great
programme! From the activities I learnt
how to keep clean and how to contribute
to keeping our earth green. I can also
implement some of the activites at home.
I wish I can be a gynaecologist one day
because I really love babies and would like

This programme has made a very
positive impact on the students through
the various activities implemented.
Students have a chance to be involved
in a variety of activities that were held
outside the school. The students are
able to experience many things up to
the national level. I myself learnt and
benefited from the UPSR seminar held in
our school.

Report on the financial statements
We have audited the financial statements of PINTAR Foundation, which comprise the balance

Trustees are also responsible for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to
enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether
due to fraud or error.
Opinion
In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of
the Company as at 31 December 2012 and of its financial performance and cash flows for the
year then ended in accordance with the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards, International
Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act, 1965 in Malaysia.

misstatement.
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
52
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 of financial statements that give a true and fair view 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.

The accompanying accounting policies and explanatory notes form an integral part of the financial statements.
1. 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 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.
The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Trustees in accordance with a resolution of the Trustees on 27 May 2013.
2. Significant accounting policies
2.1 Basis of preparation
The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and with the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards (“MFRSs”), which is in compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”). These are the Company’s first set of financial statements prepared in accordance with MFRSs and MFRS 1, First Time Adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards has been applied. In previous period, the financial statements of the Company were prepared in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standards (“FRSs”). The financial impact on the transition to MFRSs are disclosed in Note 2.2.
The financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis.
The financial statements are presented in Ringgit Malaysia (“RM”), which is also the Company’s functional currency.
2.2 Changes in accounting policies
The new and revised MFRSs, which are mandatory for companies with financial period beginning on or after 1 January 2012, did not give rise to any significant effects on the financial statements of the Company.
2.3
Standards issued but not yet effective
The Trustees expect that the new MFRSs which are issued but not yet effective for the financial year ended 31 December 2012 will not have a material impact on the financial statements of the Company in the period of initial application. 2.4
Significant accounting estimates and judgments
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with MFRSs requires the use of certain accounting estimates and exercise of judgments. 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 and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date, that have a significant risk of causing material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year.
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies
(a) Property and equipment
All items of property and equipment are initially recorded at cost. The cost of an
item of property and equipment is recognised as an asset if, and only if, it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Company and the cost of the item can be measured reliably.
Subsequent to recognition, property and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Repair and maintenance costs are recognised in profit or loss as incurred.
Depreciation of other property and equipment is computed on a straight-line over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:
Computer software
3 years
Website development
3 years
Renovation
tenancy period
Furniture and Fittings
tenancy period
Office equipment
3 years
Computer equipment
3 years
Motor vehicle
5 years
The carrying values of property and equipment are reviewed for impairment when
events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.
The residual values, useful life and depreciation method are reviewed at each financial year-end, and adjusted prospectively, if appropriate. An item of property and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal. Any gain or loss on
derecognition of the asset is included in the profit or loss in the year the asset is derecognised.

2. Significant accounting policies (cont’d.)
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies (cont’d)
(b) 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.
(c) Income tax
(i) Current tax
Current tax assets and liabilities are measured at the amount expected to be
recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. The tax rates and tax laws used to compute the amount are those that are enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date. Current taxes are recognised in profit or loss except to the extent that the
tax relates to items recognised outside profit or loss, either in other comprehensive income or directly in equity.
(d) 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.
PINTAR ANNUAL REPORT 2012
58
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.
(e) Financial assets
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.
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.
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.
(i) Loans and receivables
Financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market are classified as loans and receivables.
Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and 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 considers 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.
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies (cont’d)
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 loss is reversed to the extent that the carrying amount of the asset does not exceed
its amortised cost at the reversal date. The amount of reversal is recognised in profit or loss.
(g) Financial liabilities
Financial liabilities are classified according to the substance of the contractual arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability.
Financial liabilities, within the scope of MFRS 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.
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.
A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is extinguished.
The Company’s financial liabilities include other payables.
(h) Equity instruments
Contribution from members are classified as equity. (i) Cash and cash equivalents
For the purposes of the cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, cash at bank and deposits with licensed financial institutions which have
an insignificant risk of changes in value.
(j) Employee benefits
(i) Short term benefits
Wages, salaries, bonuses and social security contributions are 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.
(ii)
Defined contribution plan
The Company participates in the national pension schemes as defined by
the laws of the countries in which it has operations. The Company makes contributions to the Employees 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.
(k) Income recognition
Income 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 income can be reliably measured. The specific income stream is as follows:
(i) Interest income
Interest income is recognised on accrual basis using the effective interest method.
(ii) Proceeds from fund raising events
Proceeds from fund raising events are 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 income can be measured reliably.
(iii) Dividend income
Dividend income is establish when the Company’s right to receive payment is
established.
(iv) Sale of goods
Income from sales of goods is recognised upon the transfer of significant risk
and rewards of ownership of the goods to the customer. Revenue is not recognised to the extent where there are significant uncertainties regarding recovery of the consideration due, associated costs or the possible return of goods.
(v) Rendering of service
Revenue from services is recognised upon services rendered. (l) Key management personnel
Key management personnel is defined to include Board of Trustees and Programme Director.

368,973 367,966 (b) Credit risk
Credit risk is the risk of loss that may arise on outstanding financial instruments should a counterparty default on its obligations. The Company’s exposure to credit risk arises from other receivables and cash and bank balances.
Other receivables are due from creditworthy debtors with good payment records with the Company. The cash and bank balances of the Company are placed with reputable financial institutions or companies with high credit ratings and no history of default.
At the reporting date, the Company’s maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the carrying amount of the other receivables and cash and bank balances.
13. Capital management
The Company manages its capital by following the Company’s policies and guidelines and also seeks approval from the Trustees with regard to all capital management matters. Presently, the Company’s activities are funded via government grant and contribution from members.
14. Fair values
The fair values of all financial assets and liability approximate the carrying amounts due to their relative short term maturities.
15. Prior year adjustments
(i) Consultancy fee income
In prior year, the Company had under recognised the consultancy fee income from Teluk Datai Resorts Sdn. Bhd. amounting to RM100,000. Accordingly, a prior year adjustment has been made to recognise the correct consultancy fee income amount.
(ii) Programme related expenses
In prior year, the Company had wrongly recognised the programme related expenses relating to consultancy services rendered to Teluk Datai Resorts Sdn. Bhd. amounting to RM34,567 as other payables instead of expenses. Accordingly, a prior year adjustment has been made to recognise the correct programme related expenses amount.
(iii) Provision for bonus
In prior year, the Company had under recognised the provision for bonus amounting to RM183,415. Accordingly, a prior year adjustment has been made to recognise the correct provision for bonus.
15. Prior year adjustments (cont’d.)
(iv) Contribution from members
In prior years, the Company had wrongly recognised donations amounting to RM7,500 as contribution from members. Accordingly, a prior year adjustment has been made to recognise the correct donation amount. The effects of the adjustments are as follows:
