BIBD REWARDS HIGH ACHIEVING ALAF STUDENTS WITH TRIP TO DISCOVER SINGAPORE

Fifteen bright underprivileged students enrolled in Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam’s Advocating Life -Long Learning For An Aspiring Future (ALAF) programme were recently rewarded for their academic achievements with a four day educational trip to discover Singapore.

Singapore was the chosen destination as it gave students an opportunity to broaden their worldview and learn how the city-state transformed itself into an advanced and dynamic economy.

The trip will inspire Brunei’s young leaders of tomorrow to achieve Brunei’s Vision 2035, transforming Brunei Darussalam into a nation widely recognized for the accomplishments of its well-educated and highly skilled people, high quality of life, as well as a dynamic and sustainable economy.

During the educational trip, students kept a daily journal to document their visit. Reflecting on their experience, students discussed what can be put into practice base on their observations while retaining their Bruneian values, during a sharing session held at the end of the trip.

Accompanied by ALAF Taskforce teachers and BIBD officers, the students visited major landmarks and attractions including Singapore’s Science Centre, the National Museum and Universal Studios.
