MV runs a special programme for schools whereby schools, organising trips to Muzium Negara, can request MV’s help. The volunteers will engage the students in activities that are fun and educational. Led by Cay Maru, the MV School Programme Group has responded to the requests of many schools, both local and international. Below are MV’s interaction with two of these schools in 2012.
84 students and 4 teachers from Bukit Jalil Sports School visited Muzium Negara on 25 April 2012 and they were treated to a fun packed day.
In addition to interesting activities in the indoor galleries which included working through an activity worksheet, the students also had the opportunity to experience working as an archaeologist at the Discovery Room.
On 5 July 2012, MV played host to 21 students and 6 teachers from the Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Peel KL, which is a school for hearing impaired students. The students were treated to a guided tour of the indoor galleries. Other activities included folding a tengkolok at the Discovery Room and participating in traditional games at Dataran Muzium.
