Dr. Albert

Before the journey,Dr. Albert Tan said “Students are embarking on an adventure in an unfamiliar environment, engaging in activities, which are challenging yet rewarding, where they will be stretched beyond their preconceived limits in order to succeed. The net result will be a clearly developed group of students having team and core values of: honesty, integrity, dignity, responsibility, trust, self-determination, and of course agility”

Day one began at 8am with the journey from KL to Lumut on the MISI coach. On arrival at Lumut, lunch was served. In the afternoon instructors gave their introduction to the course, followed by ice breaking class. Only hours prior to this course students had not met one another and now they were entering the real ice breaking part of the program where they must begin working together effectively as a team in order to accomplish a host of tasks.

Day 2 (Morning) – Wall Climbing, Rope Obstacle.

Day 2 (Afternoon) – Kayak Training & Water Confidence.

Day 3 (Morning) – Kayak Trip

Day Four began with a morning of free activities and after lunch the return journey to campus began. Clearly life long friendships had now forged, and a new team was ready to take on the challenges ahead.
This tired but exhilarated team will need their rest, as the true test of resilience and determination to succeed begins the start of their nine-month program ahead.
