KOTA KINABALU – Academic excellence is not a catalyst to success in a challenging and competitive society.
Deputy President of Parti Beraatu Sabah (PBS) Datuk Dr. Yee Moh Chai said that other factors such as having effective communication skills and good leadership qualities also play an important role in determining a person’s success in life and career.
Yee was speaking at the Kian Kok Middle school Youth Motivational Camp that was joined by 280 participants including students from Kian Kok school, other states such as Johor, Sarawak and local youth association members.
“I believe what was shared and taught by the speakers today, and the activities that each participants undergo, are something that are not normally taught within the schools curriculum, so I want to encourage each participants to share what they have learned with their friends, classmates and their families,” he added.
According to Kian Kok principal Paul Voo, the Youth Leadership camp was aimed at sharing and equipping the participants with useful life skills such as communication skills, building trust and motivation and team work. – SayangSabah
