Aziem Athira Abdullah invited to attend the 1st Youth Olympic Games 2010 as one of only five Young Reporters from the world.
Singapore’s Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts (MICA) have once again invited Ms Aziem Athira Abdullah, from Seafield Secondary School, Subang Jaya, who was a participant in MICA’s Young Reporters Training Camp 2009 (YRTC), to return to Singapore during the Youth Olympic Games in August 2010.
She is one of the top five participants in the MICA’s YRTC training camps. She will be joined by Mr Juan Fernando Crespo (Ecuador), Mr Andrej Jovanchevski (Macedonia), Ms Manaal Mohamed (Maldives) and Mr Piort Pilipp (Poland).
The Young Reporters Training Camp (YRTC) is an initiative of the Singapore’s Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts (MICA) to assist the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC) in promoting the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) that will be held in Singapore from 14th – 26th August 2010.
The camps aim to promote exchanges in sports, education and culture amongst youth from all around the world. Ultimately, the camps hope to foster the Olympic spirit and values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect.
Participants were selected from students who are in the FRIENDS@YOG programme initiated earlier by the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC). This twinning concept is for Singapore schools to be twinned with schools around the world. National Junior College Singapore is twinning with Seafield Secondary School, Subang Jaya, Malaysia for the secondary school category. For the primary school category, Zainab 2 Primary School in Kota Bharu, Kelantan is twinned with Raffles Girls Primary School of Singapore.
The Young Reporters Training Camp (YRTC) is for students from schools who are in the FRIENDS@YOG programme. Seafield Secondary School nominated 2 of their students, and Ms Aziem Athira Abdullah was chosen by MICA to participate in their first training camp IN 2009.
