Our team, Putra Eco Squad consists of six students and two teachers gathered at the school lobby. Before we departed, we took some pictures with our principal, Pn Meriam Bt. Abdul Karim and one of the senior assistants of SMK Putrajaya Presint 5(1) Pn. Salleha Bt Salleh . They gave us words of encouragement to do well because we are reprensenting Putrajaya and we felt so lucky to have a principal who cares so much about us.We went there by van that have been sponsored by our PTA.
We arrived at 11 a.m. While waiting for the registration, we strolled around the hotel's area and we found that this hotel is amazing and we can't believe that we are going to stay here for 3 days and 2 nights. We also had the chance to make friends with other states participants. We were given a t-shirt, nametag, and pamplet from the Toyota team. Around 2 pm , we entered the Victorian Ballroom to start the briefing by PEKA MALAYSIA about our eco system that has been destroyed by human being. At 5 pm, we were given key rooms and it is the time to prepare for the night event.
