Yayayan Pillar decided to co-partner the event in order to share with kids and parents present at the event the crucial important of goodwill and harmony between Sarawakians from diverse racial and religious backgrounds. Dato Paduka Aisah shared her experience in Sarajevo where she witnessed the awful end results of religious and racial wars inflicted by Serbs Christians on Bosnian Muslims. And she related the incident here in Malaysia of an 8 year christian kid who thought his muslim friend would one day become a terrorist only because his Malay friend name is Mohammad. This sort of undesirable thought playing in the minds of our young kids is dangerous if not corrected soon enough. She asked parents of all religions and races to inculcate to their kids positive values of tolerance, peace and goodwill. “We have only one Malaysia and one Sarawak. We have no where else to go if something bad happen to our country. So take care of our homeland Malaysia”.

Some of the school represented were New Life Church, St Thomas, SK Matang, Al Ahmin, SK Semariang, Matang Jaya, Semerah Padi, and Petra Jaya, who registered and interested to be part of the participant.
