So this morning I fetched the kid to school, his first time heading to physical classes in a long, long while. We prepared him as best we can, complete with face masks, face shield, hand sanitizer and more. It’s interesting then that I received this piece of news from Carlsberg in my inbox today. Read on.
The ‘Safer Schools’ campaign is a testament to the Carlsberg Malaysia’s commitment to reaching out to the community in need. With an aim to provide a safer learning environment for both students and teachers, Carlsberg Malaysia has completed distributing all 622 facial recognition infrared thermometers worth RM1.6 million to 300 SK, SKJC, and SKJT schools nationwide as the country continue to combat against unabating COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have always believed in giving back to the communities we operate in, which is why we took matters into our own hands when the pandemic struck. We are proud to say that we saw an overwhelming response through the submissions for Safer Schools 2021, which we have received over 400 applications for the infrared thermometers,” said Stefano Clini, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.
Other than providing schools with facial-recognition infrared thermometers and disinfection services, the Safer Schools campaign has also introduced a catchy Safer Schools song via a music video. This song exhibits the measures and SOPs one needs to comply in order to fight the spread of COVID-19 in a fun and light-hearted manner.
The music video, which is made so simple that the song and dance can be practiced and performed with peers and teachers at school, is a simple stress-reducing workout to learn about the importance of personal hygiene and pandemic defence measures, and ultimately promote good physical and mental health.
