The report noted that two NIE trainee teachers, Mr Noorhidayat Mohamad Nor and Ms Munirah Jaafar, attended a writing programme last July, on the theme of “Poetry”. This was organised by Majlis Sastera Asia Tenggara (Mastera) {South East Asia Literature Council} and held in Indonesia. Ms Munirah and Mr Noorhidayat shared that the poetry-reciting culture there was very different. They stressed more on the vocal aspect or the pronunciation while reciting the poem. Nonetheless, local poets were praised for the strong foundation of the language and structuring of the poem.
