The Brunei Students here have recently organized two awesome events in two separate locations across the UK.
Firstly it is the Kem Ibadah the 5th 1434H/2013M, a three day workshop held in Brunei Hall, London. Held from 1st to 3rd of March, it revolves around enhancing the students spiritual being, knowledge and appreciation on the day-to-day Ibadah. Over a hundred Bruneian participants turned up for the event, some of which were from Nottingham, Liverpool, Loughbrough, Sheffield and Keele.//
There were outdoor games, poster making competitions, group prayers, and presentations involved. This to enhance participants teamwork and leadership abilities. I joined the event and am quite thankful for my teammates who managed to help our team-“Darussalam”-attain the second and third spot for the poster making and relay race competition respectively.
Below are the positions won by the teams in respective competitions.
