More than 50 HEP Teachers involved in Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam’s (BIBD) ALAF programme attended an appreciation night event organised by the Bank. The event was held to recognise the contributions of ALAF Student Welfare Teachers in supporting the primary and secondary education of the young underprivileged Bruneians.
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.
To further better serve Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD)’s ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for an Aspiring Future) programme, the team has moved to their new office in the capital at the PGGMB building.
BIBD held a closing ceremony for its learning camps at the Orchid Garden Hotel for its Holiday English Language Program (HELP) Camps organised for the BIBD ALAF programme students.
