Borneo Bulletin: Interactive activities help PTES students

AS A joint initiative to conduct talks and workshops to all sixth form centres in Brunei Darussalam, members of the Brunei Students Union United Kingdom (BSU UK) and Brunei Religious Officers Student Association (BruROSA) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Islamic Da’wah Centre (PDI), recently visited Sengkurong Sixth Form Centre (PTES) to deliver a Youth Empowerment workshop.

Armed with buckets and hula-hoops and infused with enthusiasm and humility, they facilitated a fun-filled afternoon to 70 upper and lower sixth form students.

Through a range of interactive activities and motivational talks, the inspiring young achievers – on their summer break from universities all over the UK – covered some issues and challenges faced by students during their current and future studies. Topics such as mental health, enhancing life skills, overcoming challenges in relation to Islamic teachings and peer pressure were addressed in a warm collegial supportive manner.

PTES alumnus, Aiman Syafiq bin Ramlee was quoted as saying, “If you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail”. Some other key points PTES students took from the session were that they were not alone; to choose friends wisely; find purpose in spirituality; work hard, persevere, and aim high. The event ended with a sharing session on the challenges and issues the students currently face.
