THE National Unity Ministry will launch the National Unity Action Plan at the end of this year to foster community unity in line with the Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian Family) concept.
Its minister Halimah Mohamed Sadique said it was an overall blueprint plan that included the Perpaduan Kindergarten Early Childhood Education Plan 2021-2030, the Rukun Tetangga Community Leadership Empowerment Plan 2021-2030 and the Keluarga Malaysia Unity Plan.
“Besides that, the ministry is also creating the Kelab Rukun Negara modules in schools and the Rukun Negara Secretariat at the university level to instil the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia so that it starts from the basics, including the Rukun Negara and the Constitution,” she said on RTM’s “Inklusif” programme last night.
Halimah added that various programmes had been introduced under the Perpaduan Kindergarten Early Childhood Education Plan 2021-2030 to foster the spirit of unity in the early stages of schooling.
This included the teaching of four communication languages; namely Mandarin, Tamil, Kadazan and Iban at Perpaduan kindergartens.
She said the programmes will be implemented in all 1,781 Perpaduan kindergartens nationwide, in which 38,000 pupils are enrolled. – Oct 14, 2021
