Students hone communication skills

OLYMPIA College's Penang Student Council Committee was recently invited to participate in a youth parliament programme organised by the Malaysian Social Intellect and Capacity Building Association (Pemkis).

They joined some 150 youths who attended the inaugural "Mobile Youth Parliament" sitting held at Universiti Sains Malaysia.

A total of four motions were debated at the event, covering the issues of "employers wanting employees who have work experience compared to higher qualifications", "automatic registration as a voter for youths at the age of 21", "the Federal Government should not be blamed for moral decay among youths", and "Lynas project brings more harm than good". The session was good exposure for the students, serving to empower them and help them hone their skills in public speaking and debate.
The students were each given a certificate of participation at the end of the session.

Such events are part of the training at Olympia College that believes in being goal-oriented, and instilling a positive and innovative mindset among its students. The college also believes in the practical application of knowledge, and helps improve students in their communication and presentation skills, whatever their field of studies.
