SANDAKAN: Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Perempuan here launched its very own product line entitled PVMA Beauty Art, yesterday.
The launching ceremony was officiated by Assistant Director of Sabah State Academic Management Department, Mohd Fazli Abd Rozah, representing Sabah Education Director Datuk Maimunah Suhaibul.
The launch is in line with the status of SMK Perempuan which is the only school here offering the Certificate of Skills Malaysia (SKM) Level Two in Aesthetics or Beauty.
Among the products are beauty soap based on organic substance, dish washing soap, fabric softener, laundry detergent and body scrub.
The products are produced by the students themselves assisted by their teachers. They can also be purchased at the school besides the Kim Fung Night Market every Saturday from 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm.
Since its inception a few years ago, the beauty skill class has provided an opportunity for former students to enroll in the beauty field whereby some have became private instructors and have even gone to China to develop their talents.
Among the skills taught at the beauty classes include beauty, massage, medicure and pedicure.
Form Four and five students are given the opportunity to enroll in the beauty skill class as an option as their basic classes or for their SPM examination.
The skills opportunity provides students who are less inclined academically to be able to succeed in beauty skills thus making it as their career.
