Although the pandemic had severely affected schools and institutions from hosting events and gatherings last year, St. George's School was very much privileged to have been invited to join the 2-Day BIBD Youth Empowerment Summit 2020 held at the Jerudong International School (JIS) in December 2020.
Ten students were selected to attend the programme physically while 10 others attended it virtually through Zoom due to government regulations as a result of the pandemic. To commemorate the students' participation, the founder of Curious Minds, Mr. Shaun Hoon, and our sponsor for the BIBD YES! Programme, Mrs. Hafiza Mohamad from Progresif, came down to St. George's School to give out certificates of participation to our beloved students.
Besides that, there were also feedbacks from the students about how they were inspired and enlightened during the summit itself. The summit was hosted to build up students' leadership as well as social skills for the future to come. The student themselves also agreed that the summit had given them new perspectives and viewpoints in terms of worldly challenges they need to face as the world is getting more and more modern and developed.
To show our token of appreciation to Progresif for choosing our school out of 32 schools, the principal of our school, Mr Janidi Jingan, presented Mrs. Hafiza Mohamad a certificate of appreciation. Afterwards, we had a group photo session, followed by refreshments. The teachers-in-charge for this eye-opening experience was Teacher Apiza Abd. Latiff and Mr. Eugenio Mendoza.
