PMFFAR had successfully organized Piala Dekan this year! The objective of this sport carnival was to prepare students for the coming National Pharmacy Sports Carnival (NPSC) 2013. Besides, this event focused on strengthening the bonds between students and staffs, as well as to produce all-rounder pharmacy students, who are not only excellent in academic aspects but also sports.
There were a total four games in the event i.e. futsal, netball, volley ball and badminton. Futsal and netball tournaments were held on the first day followed by volley ball and badminton on the next day. Great participation and support were shown during this carnival and many of our students and staffs had actually portrayed good skills in sports. Our Dean even joined the badminton tournament and was performing well. This certainly proved that the pharmacy students are all engaging actively in sports!
During the carnival, we had interviewed some staffs and the students:
