Dunging class to begin in October

KUCHING:  Is there anyone interested to study the unique Dunging Alphabet?

Named after the inventor of the alphabet himself, Dunging Anak Gunggu, it will be a great privilege to learn it.

Being one of Dunging’s grand nephews, Assoc. Professor Dr. Bromeley Philip had gone some great distance in refining and promoting the only known Iban system of writing.

Dr Bromeley has agreed to work closely with Winstep Management Solutions to conduct classes not only to revive it but to ensure that it is widely studied and known among the Iban in particular.

Dr Bromeley is the authority on the subject and is among the few of his close relatives who have seriously researched on the Dunging alphabet.

Classes will begin on October 15, 2012. As there are limited places available, the intake will be based on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis.

To complete the course, you need to complete 28 hours of study, each session will last two hours. There will be three sessions per week.

To know more about the class, there will be a free talk/preview on Dunging alphabet on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Kuching Park Hotel, Jalan Padungan starting from 10.00 am. 

If you are interested to attend the talk, contact the programme Secretariat, Edwin John at 019-8349790 to register and confirm your attendance as seats are limited.
