PETRONAS Brunei Launches School of Life Community Outreach Project Programme

Bandar Seri Begawan, 25 May 2021  

PETRONAS Carigali Brunei Ltd (PCBL) has successfully launched the PETRONAS School of Life programme, which is a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative to educate the youth in Brunei on essential life skills beyond the classroom.

 

The launch of the programme, sponsored by PCBL and to be conducted by Curious Mind, was officiated by Minister of Education Brunei, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Hamzah bin Haji Sulaiman.

 

PCBL Country Head, Mohamad Othman Said: "PETRONAS School of Life is a programme designed to provide essential life skills training to the youth in Brunei to enhance their future employability, prepare them for an unpredictable world and inspire them to achieve success in life. We believe this programme is only the first step. We want to help them cultivate the necessary mindset to succeed in life in a holistic manner.

 

“We hope they will benefit from the programme by gaining solid values ingrained with a sense of purpose and progress,” he added.

 

The School of Life programme will commence from 4 June 2021 to 22 October 2021. The programme consists of 20 topics, divided into five key modules which include Mindset, Career, Entrepreneurship, Communications and Success. Each session will feature an interview with a local or foreign industry expert to share knowledge, skills and experience to empower the students with greater self-esteem and social-emotional skills which are vital to pave their way ahead as future leaders. 

 

The sessions will be facilitated by Curious Mind’s founder Shaun Hoon and will be conducted at PCBL’s office in Bandar Seri Begawan. More information on the programme is available at http://curiousmind.biz/psol.

 

PCBL was established in 2011 to carry out exploration related activities in Brunei’s deepwater blocks through its Production Sharing Agreements with Brunei Petroleum Authority.
