A group of Year 6 students organised the Artreach Camp, teaching art techniques to underprivileged Malay children. Working in conjunction with the Harun Ghani Education Fund (HGEF), the team's biggest aspiration for the project was for their participants to discover new avenues of expression for themselves.

The project was featured in Berita Harian on 29 December 2019, featuring Visual Arts student Izz Muhammad (in red) facilitating a pottery-making session, with Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs & Ministry of Health Amrin Amin participating.
