The Rotary Club of Singapore North sponsored a total of 8 Interactors and 2 Teacher Advisors, namely 5 Interactors and their Teacher Advisor from ITE Central and 3 Interactors and their Teacher Advisor from ITE West, who attended the RYLA 2014 in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia over a 4-day 3-night duration.
The Programme is Rotary International’s continuous youth training camp aim at developing the leadership skills of the young and upcoming aspiring leaders of the next generation. Rotary Club of Singapore North has been actively supporting this meaningful youth programme and had sponsored many of our Interactors and Rotaractors for this training in the past. The feedback received from the participants was always positive; and hence our continuous participation to help train leaders of the future.
The following passages are extracts from our Interactors who attended the RYLA in Kuching:
“This is something new and exciting for all of us, having a camp overseas in Kuching! We are glad that we made the right choice by signing up for it. During these 4 days 3 nights, we have really enjoyed ourselves because of the people that we met along with my Singapore friends.”
“Before the camp, we have our own doubts but we did it in the end as we all learn to be a good leader and worked well with our fellow Interactors and Rotaractors, this camp has changed us.”
“The camp taught us values and how to be a better person”.
“I am grateful to be part of RYLA Kuching as I learnt a lot from the camp and mostly the things I did were the first time. Thank you for the opportunity.”
“I was really touched by the actions of bonding and spirit which I’ve never experienced in my life”.
“The learning points that I had picked up along the way will also be with me. I am indeed thankful to be given such an opportunity to attend a camp which is meaningful and an experience that will benefit me in many ways.”
