Scenes of unity in diversity

MOST of them were sprawled on the floor surrounded by their paints, colour pencils, crayons and brushes.

Others brought their own ‘mini’ tables and chairs to ensure they would be in their most comfortable position as they translate their thoughts into their masterpieces.

As the 300-odd children set their mind on drawing and colouring their art works, it was clear that they were totally oblivious to their surroundings as they drifted into their own world of imagination and colour.

The children aged between seven and 18 were at the Dewan Sri Pi-nang in Penang recently to take part in the World Religions, Uni- versal Peace, and Global Ethics Children’s Art competition.

Organised by the Penang Tea-chers Art Circle, the competition themed ‘Seeing Unity in Diversity’ saw the participants coming up with their personal perspectives of the theme.

Circle chairperson Yew Swee Wah said the theme was chosen to educate and raise awareness especially among the young that people of different religious and ethnic backgrounds could live together peacefully when there is mutual understanding, acceptance and goodwill.

“Goodwill and harmony would prevail when we follow the golden rule that we should treat others the way we expect others to treat us,” she said.

The competition was divided into four categories – Category A (Primary One to Three), Category B (Primary Four to Six), Category C (Form One to Three) and Category D (Form Four to Six).

Nivashini Muralidaren, 17, from SMK Convent Butterworth said she would usually take part in art competition to improve her-self.

“I've been attending art tuition since the age of 10 and since then I’ve been taking part in art competitions,” she said.

Nivashini said art competitions, which each carried a theme, should be encouraged especially among youths, “as it makes us think and opens our mind to the issues related to the theme”.

Winners in category A were SJK (C) Jelutong’s Khaw Kar Wei, eight, SJK (C) Chung Hwa Confucian B's Sharon Chong Jia Rou, nine, and St Christopher’s School’s Kim Hyun Woo, eight.
