Ever since I was a green horn back in 2009, I have been involved in my schools' Prefect Leadership Camps. Someone must think that I'm a good leader... either that or I'm easy to order around...
Anyway, I'm always very glad to be part of something that moulds the students outside the classroom & enables them to develop lifelong skills, friendships & lasting memories. This year, the camp was held in Mukah.
Kudos to the counsellor who made it happen: Mdm Lau. She is a wonder woman. Any school which has her will be wholly blessed. Have a vacancy for a counsellor? You should fight for her. She is a true asset.
Learning Visit To Politeknik MukahPoliteknik Mukah where the prefects were exposed to the application process for the polytechnic's courses & PTPTN loans. We were also given a tour of the various specialised rooms. The lecturers of the polytechnic shared a bit about what they taught.
It was a very enlightening experience for both teachers & prefects. Politeknik Mukah does make a very suitable place for my students to further themselves.
The Camp Site: Kem Belia MukahI have a lot of respect for the facilitators at Kem Belia Mukah compared to those at Kem Belia Kemuyang (we had a camp there last year & they came off as snobbish & reluctant to help us). Even though they were really busy with Pesta Kaul which was happening on the same weekend, they arranged at the last minute for a team to come back & conduct some activities for our prefects at their obstacle course. Thanks, Kem Belia Mukah!
|I was invited to give the prefects a talk entitled "Strong & Faithful".|
|They played various ice-breakers & competitive games.|
|Sometimes, the games required cooperation.|
|During this camp, they were rarely allowed to sleep.|
One night, they played a game called Humans vs Zombies.
|OKU Obstacle Course.|
Teachers had fun disturbing the teams & preventing them from finishing the obstacle course.
The teachers won this one. Lol.
|These activities were facilitated by Kem Belia Mukah: Spider-Web & Wall.|
|Another activity facilitated by KBM: Leap of Faith.|
|We took the prefects to the beach. It was a first for many of them.|
We took pictures, collected souvenirs & played games.
|On the final night, the students took over & presented entertaining dances, songs & skits.|
Final Stop: Pesta Kaul Mukah
I had a lot of fun during this camp & I bet the prefects did too. This was a great bonding time for the teachers as well as the prefects. Hopefully, the prefects shall return to school with renewed vigour to serve & be shining examples of excellence.
