Muhamad Hafizi Mihzan Bin Zaidon, Principal of Sekolah Tinta in his closing speech said, the theme sehati jiwa” was created to involve the students, parents and teachers in creating a positive environment. This effort is part of the school initiative in ensuring that our students, even though are not able to attend school, find joy and excitement in sports. He further adds “Festival Sukan Norma Baharu has seen its implementation for the second year running. Last year, with the obstacles and limited resources at our disposal, the school developed activities hoping to encourage students and the school community to be active in sports.” 

In line with the Olympic values of balanced development of body, will and mind. Sekolah Tinta fully supports the initiative by incorporating it in our school program, in this case, active participation in sports. Even if we may not be together, we manage to create and share the same moment, and that is something that we will never forget.
